Katie Couric Designed Her Own Glasses, And You Can Get Them!May 2, 2011 @ 4:45 pm
Katie Couric may be resigning from her role as anchor of CBS Evening News in June, but she’s got other things to keep her busy—like designing glasses. The newscaster and author of the new book The Best Advice I Ever Got: Lessons from Extraordinary Lives, teamed up with one of her favorite eyewear companies, Eyebobs, to create her own pair of reading glasses named “Katie’s Close Up.” “Katie Couric embodies the spirit of Eyebobs—smart, stylish, and sassy,” Eyebobs creator Julie Allinson told InStyle of working with the television star. The frames are available for a limited-time only for $75, currently on Eyebobs.com and at Ilori stores. And just as Couric is donating a portion of her new book sales to Scholarship America, Eyebobs will donate a percentage of the proceeds from sales of the glasses to the same charity.
