Sarah Palin wowed the nation with her beauty and charm when she was introduced as Senator John McCain’s vice presidential running mate in August of 2008. But it wasn’t only her hair pulled back in true beauty queen fashion or her gorgeous wardrobe that attracted the most attention. Sarah Palin mesmerized the crowds with her eye glasses, and it wasn’t long before women everywhere were trying to get a pair of their own.
The Japanese eye glasses designer, Kazuo Kawasaki, designed the eye glasses worn by Sarah Palin. The particular set of frames that Governor Palin wears is Kawasaki’s 704 series in a 34 gray color with the rectangular lenses. These eye glasses, are rimless with titanium temples and available in a wide variety of other shapes, start at a suggested retail price of $375 at many stores. Most optometrists wisely stocked up on these increasingly popular eye glasses or similar frames due to increasing requests, and they are still available at quite a few places online.
