You can’t look at Sarah Palin without marveling at how beautiful her eyeglasses are, and how perfectly they set the tone of serious, yet stylish. Her nomination for vice president has set off a genuine rush to optical businesses by women who want her glasses.

Sarah Palin’s glasses are custom made, but based on the Kawasaki 704 series, and the color is 34 gray. The Sarah Palin frame — minus the lenses — starts at a suggested $375. Depending on the type of lenses you have installed, the total package can run to $700.

Other fashion forward women that have been seen in public wearing corrective lenses (that aren’t sunglasses) are Amanda Peete, Cate Blanchette, Chloe Sevigny, Jennifer Gardner, Kirsten Dunst, Lindsay Lohan and Sharon . Stats for Designer Eyeglass Frenzy Trending: Older & Buzzing
