John Lennon Style

John Lennon granny glasses John Lennon glasses Though it seems like round wire-rimmed granny glasses have been called "John Lennon glasses" forever, John only started wearing them for his role as Private Gripweed in the 1967 movie How I Won the War (The director, Richard Lester, had also directed John in A Hard Day's Night and Help!) John was very nearsighted but didn't think glasses were a cool look for a rock star (even though one of his heroes, Buddy Holly, had worn them!) so before shooting this film, he either wore prescription sunglasses, contact lenses or squinted a lot. But after 1967, John almost always wore some variation of these classic "National Health issue" glasses.
