Streetalk: Aren't those glasses too big on you?

Faith: There’s no such thing as too big anymore. I don’t know if you remember way back in the ’90s, but there was this group, TLC. Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes had glasses that were like humongous. They were really cool and she did them and did them well. Ever since, sunglasses have been fun. Small sunglasses suck. You look like that character from the X-Men. In the ’60s, Jackie O. set the trend. Everything she wore, everyone loved. Even now, everyone wants to wear what Jackie wore.

Harry: A little bit. It’s kind of strange. I feel a little bit more powerful with them on. It seems like I can see more. Like it’s bigger so you can see more out of the corner of your eye. But I think they look good on me. They’re really comfortable and I stand out from all the other kids because of my scar, too. I never knew my parents were wizards until, like, Rubeus Hagrid told me because they were all lying. But I can do a lot of stuff and get away with it. And my wand right here, I hand-whittled it myself.

Rita: I’ve certainly never been asked a question like that! I think they’re perfect. Of course I need them because I’m a writer, but I also find them very useful when asking difficult questions. They attract attention. Being a journalist, I’m rarely offended when asked any questions. But as far as my glasses, they fit my personality. Obviously other people must think so because they seem to like to take pictures of me. I think they add to my wit, my cleverness and probably my beauty as well.
