Sunglass Faceoff: Drew vs. Kirsten

03/12/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Turns out that Drew Barrymore and Kirsten Dunst don’t just have the same taste in guys, they also have the same taste in sunglasses! We already knew that Drew loves her white-rimmed Linda Farrow Vintage sunglasses, and it turns out that Kirsten does too, wearing them all the time during her Hawaiian getaway this week. We think the glasses are a fun throwback to the wayfarer look — we told you it’d be a hot trend! — and add a funky edge to any outfit, even a bikini! We leave it up to you. Tell us: Who do you think wears the sunglasses better? Drew or Kirsten?

I don’t think Kirsten is cute at all. She’s got an awful body, no shape…and looks like a boy when she turns to the side. Her teeth are awful–her hair is ugly and she’s always flipping someone off. NO CLASS at all.

Drew looks fab though!

bobrossqueen on

Drew totally wears them best, by far!

Fro Ho on

They look like theyre wearing those cheap sunglasses that you can get at the grocery store for like 3 dollars….But Kristen dunst looks much worse in them, she just needs to take a shower or something,….this look is FUGLY (sorry drew)

Frab on

Drew definately- she’s looking great lately. I’ve never liked Kirsten Dunst. I don’t think she’s attractive at all so I don’t like her with these sunglasses.

Christine on

Neither – they’re ugly sunglasses. They look like something my parents would have made me wear when I was three!

Carina on

I love Drew in the white.
Kirsten jst lookes really pale in them.
There really fashionable glasses and I think they look moe striking on Drew ;).
Much Love Norway.

Heather S. on

Hmmm… I’m not sure I like the glasses on either lady, but especially on Kirsten. Something about her irks me… maybe I’m just jealous that she got to Jake first, haha. I think I’m a little bit over the very bold sunglasses look as well!

elle on

Definitely Drew. She pulls it off with a little more elegance than Kirsten. Drew is just much more classy. The sunglasses are great.

j on

i don’t think anyone can pull these off. the shades seems to accentuate their less-than-perfect features even though they’re both cute girls.

alice on

Drew looks really good. I think Kirsten is such a cute girl, she just tends to wear things that don’t flatter her at all.

me on

Those sunglasses sure make teeth look YELLOW!!

Emily on

This look is not working in my taste. It is soooo not attractive, they look like they spent dollars on their glasses and they don’t even flatter their face, what were they thinking!

Shanna on

I would have to say that Drew definitely wears them awhole lot better than Kirsten. Kirsten is too pale to wear white sunglasses, I work at Sunglass Hut and Kirsten would never have walked out with white sunglasses, she needs to be wearing brown or black and smaller, they are even too big for her face. That is just my opinion.

megan on

these glasses are ugly on both pretty women!!!

Denaille on

They look like from 50’s and I think it rocks! Love them! I think Kirsten looks better because she looks like Lolita from the same movie. Beauuutifuul :)

Veronica on


britt on

Definitely Drew, i love her she always looks adorable. I was never a big fan of kirsten

Helen on

Man those sun glasses look like they belong in the 5 and dime store. although Drew does look better in them. Ladies qiut wearing the big sunglasses espeacially if your really thin, because it makes you look like something off this world.

HLS on

The sunglasses are terrible. They look like something I wore when I was seven years old. That said, Drew pulls them off better than Kirsten.

Elda on

I think they both look cute, i don’t think i’d look that good because i get too dark in the summer time.

Ruben on

i agree wiht the first person

d on

I wear glasses everyday so the idea of wearing something like the white sunglasses and calling attention to me seems werid. Drew looks ok with them but if she had her blonde hair she would look silly in them and Kristen is it me or does that picture have her looking like a 12 yr old girl? Not like an adult she looks like she’s playing dress up in them.

ucokaty on

wow me you are SO RIGHT! yikes!!!!

Sara on

Yick- I don’t like those sunglasses at all. Both girls are beautiful, why are they wearing such ugly shades? Leave them in the 80’s where they belong!

gladis on

I think the glasses are ugly…they do look cheap but i think that they fit kirsten better than drew….

DukeDevil on

OH my gosh those r sooooooo ugly

Ashley on

How can you compare?? First, (me) they really do make their teeth look yellow!! Second, I think it makes both girls (or anyone who tries to wear them) look like a big ‘ol bug!!! I work with a girl who tries to wear them all the time, poor thing – people are always laughing at them! They just don’t look right. Eww…

Mary on

While I usually love sunglasses with white frames and black lenses, these sunglasses are hideous. The frame definitely belongs in the 80s.

Hunneybunn on

To each his own, sunglasses are a personal choice, but I have a pair of white-framed sunglasses that I like to wear, with a more subtle white frame. These frames are too intense for my taste. I vote NO for either pair on either girl, just based on the glasses.

Didi on

Ugly glasses one of those 70 trends that should never come back.Drew pulls them off much better though.Kirsten-her face is soo small and plain she’d better stick with something basic.

R on

I think they both look great. They both have similar facial structures so they both carry it off well.

Sarah on

I think these girls are both very unattractive but Drew works the shades better because of her tan.

Colette on

I think it looks bad on both. In fact, I can’t think of anyone it would look good on. UGLY.

Tina on

I don’t think either of the pictures are flattering the actresses. Drew looks a teensy bit better. :)

Lizzie on

um, NEITHER. those glasses are fugly!

Aurora on

Sometimes you just want to wear something ugly… they both look cute anyway though.

Carly on

While both ladies are beautiful, I don’t think the glasses are flattering on either! There are very few people who can wear wayfarer-style glasses. Are you sure those are Linda Farrow? Marc Jacobs makes those exact glasses (Style 044s). Sienna Miller has been wearing them, too. Not the most flattering frames, I think.
I think Kirsten is beautiful because everything on her is natural. Her teeth are the way they are – instead of getting veneers like every other star, she opted to stay with what she has. I think that’s more appealing than being filled with plastic and porcelain in order to look like every other face out there. Plus, she’s a staggeringly talented actress.

Karen on

Drew has the right stuff in all she wears and does.

Cheryl on

First off peeps, the look is TOTALLY from the 80’s! They do not look all that great on either, but if I had to choose, Drew is rockin’ it out way more than Kirsten.

ahhhh on

First of all, awesome glasses. Second, both Kirsten and Drew are ugly and can’t wear these glasses. If I haven’t already sadi it HATE THESE UGLY WOMEN and LOVE THE GLASSES!!!!



jackie on

drew wore the glaases kristin looked horrable in that picture

KC on

The why Wayfayer’s NOT SO CUTE on either of them! If you are going to wear a white shade, maybe pick a frame that fits your actual face….just a thought.

rachel b. on

Drew has my vote for the Sunglass faceoff.

Shannon on

Can I say neither? Those sunglasses are hideous! Come on ladies, you have the money! Buy a nice pair of sunglasses!

Lyssa on


Keysa Bonquita on

It looks like Kirsten’s picture was altered and she’s falesly “wearing” these glasses…

jen stone on

These glasses look stupid on everyone, except maybe my 2 year old niece who also has them in pink. :)

JM on

Not sure either would make it on Cute Girls in Stupid Sunglasses tho i hear Drew is hotter in person…

Liz on

Actually, I think they look better on Kristen, simply because Drew doesn’t normally look that hideous. That’s an aweful picture, and the sunglasses seal the deal. Conversely, Kristin usually looks unfashionable, so the sunglasses are more her.

D Carter on

Drew looks great in anything. She’s the most versatile and beautiful actress of our time.

Emery on

Definetely Drew!
