There is, somehow, an instant attractiveness boost conferred by sunglasses. But why is it that covering up our eyes creates this effect? Believe it or not, there is an expert on the topic (it was the subject of her PhD), and UK professor Vanessa Brown explains the situation to Science of Us. The Guardian notes Brown's research spun out of her catching sight of her own reflection one daywalking into a supermarket in scruffy painting clothes but looking, she believed "quite cool," thanks to her sunglasses. That may be because, first of all, symmetry makes us look better, and sunglasses hide asymmetry around our eyes. They also suggest a more attractive bone structure: one that's "chiseled" rather than "soft."

And here all along I thought it was to protect
your eyes from all those bright lights in those
smoky night clubs...
I don’t know about all of that, but it’s nice to always have something in front of your eyes, just saying.
I can’t see it.
Unfortunately round these parts, you can’t find a smokey night club anymore.
Yes. Wearing sun glasses opens up a WORLD of beauty.
Since I quit smoking and going to night clubs, I’m
out of the loop, also have cataracts so don’t need
sunglasses, it does make driving at night exciting
Yyyyeahhhhh. I think DWS would need a pair of sunglasses the size of her whole face.
Lord, that gal could eat corn through a picket fence...
I’ve always thought attractive people are LESS attractive with sunglasses, as you can’t see the eyes that help make them attractive. But what do I know.
There’s a lot of “asymmetry” in that photo.
You’d have to go to “asymmetry” to find a face as equally horrid.
I started wearing them because my future was so bright...then Obama got elected.
I believe that wasserman's face is more ass'o'metrical.
That broad clearly has no idea how to take care of curly hair, and I, for one, wouldn’t be the one to clue her in.
Hard to take anyone seriously who made wearing sunglasses the subject of her PhD.

Oh it’s not that bad. I heard she scrapes her pillow off once a week with a putty knife.
I read once that one reason movie stars wear sunglasses so much is that if they meet a fan they don’t have to worry about not seeming so interested in that person. It seemed weird, but it made sense in a way.
You know how nutty people are, they think Frank Sinatra should be a thrilled to meet them as they are to meet him.
It’s probably very nice, in a way, to be famous. But it does leave you vulnerable to crazy people.
LOL...ugh. Yep, you can tell that stuff is plastered down.
