Madonna wears geek glasses, plus celebrities w/ Buddy Holly specs

Madonna has shown that she’s hip with the youngsters by donning the latest in Buddy Holly glasses that seem to have inexplicably come back into style. She wore the geeky glasses at a performance in NY last night on her Sticky and Sweet tour. The Independent notes that the way to pull of this look is to let the glasses serve as a counterpoint to your natural beauty. Do you think Madonna succeeds or does she just manage to look ridiculous as usual?

Here are photos of other celebrities wearing black chunky glasses, thanks to WENN for taking and compiling them. Shown are Rose McGowan, Sam Rockwell, Alan Cumming, Mark Ronson, Gary Oldman, and Pete Wentz.

And here’s more of Madonna performing at Madison Square Garden in NY last night. She seems to be making fun of her former image in some of these scenes. Credit: Fame Pictures.

    Geez, she along w/ everyone else looks silly. How irritating when everyone jumps on what ever fashion band wagon that is parading through. How about some individuality instead of following the crowd? (Scarfs look silly too, esp. during summer!)

    I think Madonna looks ridiculous. But then again, she usually does.

    Some people look “hip”, most absurd.
    I like scarves, Courtney. I have a variety of my own.

  3. Kaiser says:

    Gary Oldman and Sam Rockwell are rocking the hell out of those glasses! Everybody else, not so much.

    I adore a man in glasses – Buddy Holly or wire-frame preferred.

    Does she have the ugliest hair in the celeb world?
    It looks fried and bad color.
    Geek = smart
    Madonna is no geek

    Alan Cumming ! Aieeee I thought that was Tim Burton!
    Ditto to @Kaiser. As for Madge, maybe if there’d been a nose attached ?

  6. geronimo says:

    lol, me too, breederina. Just went back up to look for Alan Cumming and couldn’t find him. Until now! Think it’s the hair/glasses combo. Uncanny. And ditto kaiser re Rockwell and Oldman. Swooney.

  7. Feebee says:

    Gary Oldman looks great in those glasses… Madonna’a pair looks like it’s only frames, no glass. Which makes them look worse. Why does she always look like she has to try SOOOOO hard and for what purpose?

  8. doodahs says:

    Apparently she was giving Sarah Palin some smack during her concert last night… I thought maybe the glasses were some weird parody.

  9. kate says:

    i, too, love a man in glasses. i think madge looks like an idiot. so does pete wentz, but then again he always does.

  10. COG says:

    Those look like the same glasses her daughter was wearing for a while…maybe Madge wore them for Lola?

  11. Codzilla says:

    Madonna looks foolish, as always. And her arms are just … gross. 😳

  12. m says:

    what’s funny is that these glasses were totally in style 8-10 years ago in the underground music scene, and it sure took a long time for it to cycle up to the top. Once again proving that those at the top have to look at those who aren’t meaning to make a fashion statement, in order to make their own fashion statement.

  13. Tokyo Girl says:

    Umm Buddy Holly/Elvis Costello… these glasses have been around forever. Thanks to Ray-Ban…

    Everything old is new again.

  14. Sofia says:

    Lola wears them…if it weren’t for the hair color difference they’d be twinsies. Trends are fun. Lighten up people.

    I liked her so much better when she was just a singer from Michigan. What ever made her think she could change the world? Or better yet, what ever made her think we cared what she thought? She may not like Sarah Palin, but that might be jealousy. I mean, how smart do you have to be to dry-hump a cross for attention? Or stand naked with Vanilla Ice, take pictures of it, but it in a book and call it SEX. Hum…

  16. boobaloob says:

    Mark Ronson’s hair is HORRIBLE. It’s too bad, because otherwise he’s a hottie.

  17. Jeanne says:

    She should be in a pub sucking some suds down with Guy. Is she trying to be Ugly Betty?

  18. Thanks, Mike!
    Your video was fine, I poured honey into my speakers recently, in order to increase their dulcet tones. As a result, I couldn’t hear a word you said.
    But I read lips, so my tip: stop putting your hands in front of your face, okay?

  19. Not that I’m impressed a lot, but this is a lot more than I expected for when I stumpled upon a link on SU telling that the info here is awesome. Thanks.
