...At boys who wear glasses! In this edition of Bold Face we’ve rounded up three baby-faced gents at various levels of fame to show that a stylish pair of specs not only make a man look smart, but they can also make him look sexy…


Our newest bespeckled boy wonder to hit the scene, Devon Barley, is a rising on star on the hot new singing competition reality show “The Voice.” The 19-year-old pre-med student is a very talented singer and part of Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine’s team. Barley has easily sailed through to the next round of competition scheduled for this week. If he ends up being the show’s winner he will walk away with $100,000 and a recording contract but he’s already a winner when it comes to his spec style. Barley favors the Calvin Klein Collection 7723 optical style from Marchon. “The Voice” airs on NBC on Tuesday nights at 9 p.m…

   



Cory Monteith just has one of those faces that make him seem like a really nice guy. Throw on a pair of frames and you think “He seems like a really nice guy in glasses.” Maybe it’s because he’s Canadian. Whatever the reason, Monteith can play the drums, sing and dan… okay so anyone who has seen “Glee” knows he can’t dance but two out of three ain’t bad. Especially when he can do it all while still looking like a guy who can help you with your taxes. In May, he attended the FOX Upfronts in NYC, sporting a geek chic look in his new John Varvatos V132 glasses from Base Curve, though thanks to “Glee” this glasses-wearing hottie probably isn’t worried about doing his own taxes anymore…

 


Our most established celeb and a true triple threat – singer, dancer and now, actor - Justin Timberlake is Renaissance man reborn. After a hugely successful music career, he wowed critics and fans alike with acting roles in movies like 2006’s “Alpha Dog” and Oscar winner “The Social Network.” So impressive have his movie roles been that he now has two staring roles coming out back-to-back. On June 24, you can catch him on the big screen opposite Cameron Diaz in “Bad Teacher” and in July with Mila Kunis in “Friends with Benefits.” In “Bad Teacher,” Timberlake dons a pair of Oliver Peoples Riley glasses as nice guy Scott Delacorte. In real life, Timberlake is often seen wearing a pair of geek chic frames. Since he's been given Sexiest Man titles by Teen People and Cosmopolitan magazines and was named the "Most Stylish Man in America" by GQ magazine in 2009, clearly this one time Mouseketeer is on to something.
