Joe Jonas's Grammy Glasses: Geek Chic or Just Plain Nerdy?

It might have been all about the glam gowns and outrageous costumes at last night’s Grammy Awards, but Joe Jonas got tongues wagging with his new red carpet accessory: glasses! While the other two Jonas brothers stuck to traditional black and white tuxedos, Joe showed off a more fashion-forward side in a matching checkered jacket and vest topped off with coordinating thick-framed black glasses. With older brother Kevin enjoying life as a newlywed and younger brother Nick going solo, could this be Joe’s way of standing out from the trio? Tell us: What do you think of Joe Jonas’s newest accessory? Is it geek chic or just plain nerdy? Vote below!–Andrea DeSimone

I think it was great that he wore his glasses laat night at the grammys. He is near sighted and can’t wear contacts all the time, plus after awhile contacts are very bothersome. so it just shows us he is not too vain he can’t be seen in public wearing glasses, that is great. Plus with him wearing something different from his brothers just shows all of us they are 3 individual guys with different taste. I thought all three of them looked rather handsome and I miss seeing them together.

He’s incredibly handsome, chic and…yeah…pretty much delightfully geeky. To the point of being cool. As far as I am concerned Joe can barely do any wrong, but last night he looked exceptionally nice!

NERDY!!! LOL Let’s just change NERDY to hot and we have it. :D

I love Joe anyways.

Rebecca on

Joe looks like Clark Kent with those glasses on, but he’s remarkably and extraordinarily hot, gorgeous and sexy!

Sam on

He looks pretty hot to me!

Britt on

oohh-wee–ohh he looks just like Buddy Holly…

Very cute.

CelebAthletes on

Fashionable…I own a pair

Jules on

Nerds can be hot too! And he is definatly the sexiest Jonas Bro.

Posey on

It would take more than glasses to make Joe Jonas NOT look gorgeous. He was delicious, talk about Eye Candy!!!

Jackie on

I think those glasses are a bad fit for him.
He looks way to nerdy. He should invest in a better pair.

Charlotte on

Joe looked amazing. He had a Buddy Holly/Clark Kent vibe going on.
Joe is so in fashion right now. Alot of people in the uk are wearing those kind of glasses. I love the whole look.

jared4ever on

He looked like an absolute tool when he guest judged American Idol. This feels like a lame attempt to appear more intelligent than he really is.

Tara on

Was he trying to hide from Taylor Swift by pulling a Clark Kent? lmao

Megan on

Kevin was best dressed last night, along with his wife Danielle. Sorry Joe. Dont like the glasses

whodat on

He looks GAY!!!!



Athena on

Joe looked incredibly hot & amazing at the Grammys! I think Joe has started a trend! It’s great to see all the bros together as a group at the awards! Luvvvvv the JoBros 4evvvvv! Luvvvvv Joe!!!!!

They look like “Birth Control Glasses”. As long as you wear them you will not get close enough to a girl to have kids.

Cate on

Yeah, ONLY Zachary Quinto can pull off those glasses…. don’t even try.

Stella on

For me, it just looked like he was trying too hard to be cool… which is, of course, completely UNcool.

alexis on

They are adorable and sexy on him – totally HOT………….

alexis on

he also I might add, resembles in this photo, Michael Hutchence of INXS whom I knew – very eerie…………..

Mina on

I was a bit surprised to see Joe wearing them because I didnt know he needed them but I liked them! The frame style is classic & sleek. You need a break from contacts anyway & it’s cool he wore them in public to show he’s not embarrassed.

Oh, BTW Nerd is the new cool! =D

Marianne on

Those thicker framed glasses have been “in” for awhile now. So I’ll say that they were chic on him.

Stenie on

If anyone has seen MTV’s after show with Dan Levy, we all know where Joe got his inspiration. Dan’s been wearing those for a while, looking hot I may add, so, really, Dan is the stylemaker, not Joe Jonas.

Alex on

He’s trying to look cool, like Johnny Depp… It will never work… he sings through his nose in a geeky band…. he looks like a poser…

christa on

He reminds me of a young Cary Grant, maybe not as tall, but very good looking.

lucky on

He is trying too hard to be cool. He is copying Justin.

jobrossuck on

Joe is gay

Chlo on

Who cares? At least he has a haircut….

Lisa on

Um. Joe doesn’t sing through his nose, that’s his brother with the solo album. Joe’s the one with the GREAT voice!

Joe’s awesome, you’ll see!

kiki on

i think the glasses are fine, but i really want to tell him to shave. Because no matter how much i love Joe i DO NOT love his facial hair.

selene on

I’m not a jonas brothers fan, so I was pretty much horrified when I saw a pic of him from the grammys and was thinking “who’s that cute dude” Generally no matter what he does it seems like he’s trying too hard (all of the jobros actually) but I have to admit, he looks good these days.

Flo on

He always looks beautiful, no matter what he wears! Nobody would dare to wear those glasses, but he did. I think it was really original.

Erika on

I have always been a fan of Joe in glasses, he looks so handsome in them! He looked great, as he always does, at the Grammys! Keep the glasses Joe, we love you in them! =)

Joelle on

I don’t see anything wrong with Joe’s glasses, they are pretty cool. Yah, maybe they look a little geeky, but Joe still looks adorable. Like Posey said, “It will take more than glasses to make Joe NOT look gorgeous.” I love him. It just goes to show that Joe isn’t embarrassed to be himself in public. And that’s what makes him so awesome.

Delaine on

I think he looks handsome. I am a little tired of seeing him look grudgy and worn out.

Emily on

Sorry kids but the glasses are horrible. Not as horrible as the bushy eyebrows that are crying out for some attention. DO something about them dude!

I know, I know….I can feel the HATE emails coming.

Just an opinion.

Rosie on

I love those glasses!!!!!!!!

Jennifer Nicole Adams on

I think he’s quite handsome with his glasses :) He is a total nerd but thats what I really like about him. Its does show his independence toward the Jonas Brothers and thats great he can do that but I also think its great that they can be so alike in so many ways like they are. Joe you are deffinitely still the most amazing one ;)

K. Lyn on

And here I thought Nick was the Elvis Costello fan.

mikaiyla on

Okie so where do u get these i love’em and i love the jonas brothers soooo much i need these glasses cuz there cool plus hot on joe!

Navi` on

i think that style is perfect i love this glasses

Ronni on

Don’t love them but someone as handsome as he could totally pull off this look.

Vicki on

As far as seeing Joe in glasses, that was nothing new…recall Lovebud vid, Bounce vid, and various pictures. Contacts canget ver irritating. if my glasses looked better, I would wear them the majority od the time. I love Joe’s new look. I love ALL of his looks. He looks soooo much more grown up!

crazywoman on


annie on

it looked cute that night at the grammy’s, but lately he’s been wearing them casually and i just don’t think it looks good that way.
Stick with the contacts, joe(:

Roofia on

I think he looks bad with the glasses. So nerdy!

pablo on

he is such a johnny depp wannabe

ressa on

I love these glasses but, theylook HORRIBLE on Joe Jonas. Especially since he got that haircut. He just looks plain reatarded!!! =)

kitty kat on

okay well first he had that long hair. i wanted him to cut it. he finally did! but maybe a little too short. then i was SHOCKED when i saw him with glasses. i was like “is this a joke?” he looks sooo dorky! but i have to hand him that he is not vain about his looks. sooo thats good. :)

Coley on

I think Joe looks really hot in glasses!! :) Love ya Joe

usra on

I think he looks amazing in anything + he started a trend now a lot of the stars wear them such as jhonnie depp.He’s just so beautiful in every occasion and he looks stuning in every single outfitt. I adore him. I love u joeeeeeeeeeeee

szandra on

bilqna on

Jonas Brothers are the coolest, sweet, beautiful gentlemen in the world! If you miss even a day without seeing them die! So many dream to see them, kiss them and hug them live! Nick is cute, Joe is cool, but Kevin is funny. I will never forget them!

Adrian on
