It’s official. The votes are in. In the last year 20/20 embarked on a wave of fashion/feature photo shoots faced by “real people” rather than models. And America (or more realistically, the art and edit staff of 20/20) has decided that Felix Millán (a Jobson co-worker) and Daphne Johnson (sister of 20/20 Art Director Iris Johnson) are this year’s I-Wear Idols. Felix appeared in our
I-Wear shoot last year and blew us away with his knowledge of the hottest Gen-X and Gen-Y brands, his excellent sense of style and his great looks. Daphne won us over during our Real Women shoot in February. She looked terrific in every pair of eyewear we tried on her. Her smile is as infectious as her personality. And she truly won our hearts when she said she couldn’t wait until she needed to wear glasses.

I-Wear is an emerging category in the optical arena. It’s about what’s hip today… and the hope of tomorrow for new generations of brands and the consumers stylishly sworn to supporting those brands. This is I-Wear worth Idolizing.
