Buddy Holly

Celebri­ties have been sport­ing specs for thou­sands of years – the ear­li­est exam­ples date back 2000 years to Impe­r­i­al Chi­na. But Bud­dy Hol­ly did some­thing no oth­er bespec­ta­cled celeb had man­aged to do. Per­haps it was his inno­v­a­tive take on Amer­i­can music, per­haps it was his less-is-more approach to eye­wear. What­ev­er the rea­son, the late, great rock­er made wear­ing glass­es a sta­tus sym­bol rather than a neces­si­ty.
