Who says girls in glasses don’t have fun?

Doncaster’s Lauren Hutton is looking forward to a night with the stars after claiming a place at the 15th annual Spectacle Wearer of the Year Awards by winning the North-East heat.

Lauren, aged 20, will join specs-wearing style-setters from across the UK at the grand final, to be held in London’s iconic Battersea Power Station in November.

“I can’t believe I’m through to the final, I’ve never modelled before so I’m really excited. I love wearing glasses - I have more than 10 pairs which I coordinate with my outfits each day!” she said.

Andrew Swallow, store director at Specsavers in Doncaster, says: ‘We think that Lauren looks fabulous in her specs and can’t wait to see how she gets on at the grand final. She’s a terrific ambassador for specs-wearers everywhere.”

If Lauren is successful, she’ll receive a one year modelling contract with MOT Models plus a two week all-inclusive holiday for two in the Caribbean with £250 spending money.
