Kim Cattrall

Actress and Spectacle Wearer of the Year ambassador 2016

“As a glasses wearer I care about looking great in my frames. That’s why I’m thrilled to be launching Specsavers’ Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition and visiting New Zealand later this month to kick off the search.

I started wearing glasses in the 5th grade. I still have them. I was having trouble reading the blackboard so my teacher suggested I have my eyes checked. I've worn glasses ever since.   

Specsavers is searching for New Zealand's most stylish spec wearer and it could be you. Enter now and join in the celebration of confidence in glasses and style."

Alex Perry

Dedicated to luxury and glamour, Alex Perry's approach to fashionable eyewear has redefined style and elegance on the glasses front.

“Kim and I have teamed up to find the New Zealander who wears their glasses with confidence, and we’ll be looking for entries that show off a bit of personality. As someone who has been designing glasses for a number of years now, I know how important the right pair of frames can be.

What I love about fashion and Specsavers is that there is something for everyone, no matter what your budget, face shape or prescription, you just need to find your own personal style."
