Supermodel Helena Christensen is down under in Australia this week launching the Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition—Specsavers is the equivalent of a Cohen's Fashion Optical or a Lenscrafters in Australia. Christensen also fronts the new campaign for eyewear label Silhouette. But what we find ironic, in light of all these eyeglasses endorsements, is that Christensen herself doesn't wear glasses—as in, she doesn't need prescription specs. Eh, who cares, right? She still looks pretty awesome in them.
