The Specsavers’ Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition, now in its fifth year, is a nationwide hunt for New Zealand's most stylish and confident spectacle wearer. Eva will join fellow judges, including proud spec wearer and beloved comedian, Jeremy Corbett and L’Oréal Professionnel Stylist, Peter Dutton, to decide the Kiwi who has made their glasses into the ultimate fashion accessory. Eva became a spectacle wearer herself four years ago, after noticing her eyes felt strained from studying late at night for a Masters degree. An eye test revealed Eva needed glasses for reading, which have since become an invaluable part of her life – whether hitting the books or reading a script for her latest role.

“As a glasses wearer I care about looking great in my frames. Wearing glasses is all about having fun and embracing your style. Whether I’m on set filming, studying or at a special event, accessorising my look with glasses gives me confidence and allows me to make the ultimate style statement.”

The winner of the competition will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Los Angeles, with a friend, to meet Eva on the set of her latest TV show and earn the prestigious title of Spectacle Wearer of the Year. Six Kiwi finalists will win a trip to Auckland, including a professional photo shoot and spec style consultation.
