Unbespectacled

I’ve seen just enough Gossip Girl to be able to recognize Yin Chang as bookworm Nelly Yuki; she did the first two seasons, departed, and returned in the sixth, having become a fashion reporter, as does every Merit Scholar, right? (Hmmm. I won … um, never mind.) There is, of course, no reason a bookworm can’t look like this:

I had a few more pictures in the archive, but in each and every one, “the girl behind the glasses” was not wearing glasses, which perplexed me enough to go looking for screenshots where she was. And so we have:

This humongous metal contraption around her neck is, I am told, from Oscar de la Renta, and a budding fashionista would of course have to wear such a thing, am I right?

    ” a budding fashionista would of course have to wear such a thing, am I right?”

    Or maybe Xena…

    Of course, no one would question Xena — not and survive, anyway.

    Those glasses make her eyes look downright beady. I’m sure there are better eyeglass choices, but I suppose (without having ever watched the show) they might not convey the character as intended quite so effectively.
