Real Vageniuses Wear Glasses

infoHumble Howard is trying to promote use of the term vagenius when referring to "a good looking, smart chick". His examples include Tina Fey, and that got me thinking about the wonderful world of stock photography.

In my 9-5 world, I spend a lot of time with stock images. I'm always needing an image for the web, a direct mail piece, a brochure or flyer. When I need a smart looking women, the universal sign of intelligence in the stock photography world is the wearing of glasses. Glasses make people look smarter, it's as simple as that.

Real vageniuses wear glasses. Here's exhibit A.

Well now I would say here that they not only make her look smarter but in a cool sort of way, sexier

Sad but true (and I like Tina Fey and Lisa Loeb too). Glasses used to be NERDY, whatever happened? Is it that Sexy Librarian effect too?

As far as I know, I have 20/20 vision, but if I ever DO need glasses, I can be a "real" Vagenius then. A girl can only dream...
