A high school student, aspiring to be an actress. A fashion industry executive. A bride and her fitter. An emergency room nurse. Publishing company coordinators. A blonde with fair skin. A red head with green eyes. A brunette with brown eyes. Age doesn’t matter. Occupation doesn’t matter. Nor does complexion or hair color. From the bride on her special day to an executive at the office anytime, anywhere, with the right eyewear, everyone looks great… and even better… feels great.

GAIL GARRAMONE is vice president, public relations and corporate marketing, for the New York City-based Liz Claiborne Inc.

The 20/20 Take
Dealing with the fast pace of a fashion environment takes both stamina and style. Gail has a bounty of both and her eyewear reflects that strong dual nature.

MEREDITH MURPHY, a senior at Huntington High School in Huntington, N.Y., plans to major in drama in college.

The 20/20 Take
Conscious of the fact that Meredith is keen on making a dramatic impression, we’ve pictured her in a subtle, but sure, bowtie shape that draws attention to her expressive eyes. Exiting stage left or right, everyone is certain to remember Meredith.

NANCY CALI is a production coordinator at Jobson Publishing.

The 20/20 Take
We see Nancy’s beauty and personality as half retro and half modern. She can easily wear a shape dominated by the hot-again bi-color look.

The 20/20 Take
Whether it’s lavish jewel accents, tactile, textured
temples, luscious laminates or elegant three-piece mount designs, women’s eyewear sees it all.

JENNIFER D’ELIA is a staff nurse in the emergency room at Phelps Hospital in Sleepy Hollow, N.Y.

The 20/20 Take
There is nothing delicate about being a nurse in an emergency situation. But Jennifer’s delicate features and fine hair are perfectly complemented by frames that echo those two qualities. She tucks her hair behind her ears for a fresh look that shows off subtle temple details.

The 20/20 Take

CHRISTINE YEH is a special projects coordinator at Jobson Publishing.

The 20/20 Take
Christine is first-generation American with a full Chinese heritage. Frames that bring interest to both the front and side of her face highlight her beauty.

The 20/20 Take
