What do A-listers Zayn Malik, Kate Beckinsale, and Patrick Dempsey all have in common? Rimless eyeglasses! Gone are the days when rimless glasses were for nerds and uncool folks. These glasses can transform your whole look without overpowering your facial features. Rimless specs provide that barely-there look!
Need celeb-inspo to nail the rimless eyewear trend? We got you covered! Here are seven celebrities who rock rimless glasses like a boss!
1. Patrick Dempsey
There is no doubt that Grey’s Anatomy is an excellent show. But people like me stopped watching it (spoiler alert) after Patrick Dempsey’s character Derek Shepherd met a tragic death. Sob* I remember when the show aired, women were swooning over Patrick’s charming looks. He is handsome and has a Dempsey center that treats cancer patients for free.
Patrick’s style has evolved from the boyish charm to a seasoned actor seamlessly, and so have his eyeglasses. As seen in the picture here, Patrick is wearing rimless glasses like the Gold Rimless Rectangle Eyeglasses on the red carpet, and it is a trend here to stay. Rimless eyeglasses eliminate the glare from camera flashlights and keep the focus on their face.
2. Zayn Malik
The new-gen pop star Zayn Malik currently favors oversized round rimless eyeglasses. He likes to switch up his style often. Not all faces can carry a bold rimless glasses style comfortably, but Zayn steals the show. These round rimless frames offer him a sophisticated and dapper look.
Zayn looked incredible in the eye-catching three-piece suit and eyeglasses. He is wearing a pair of round rimless eyeglasses like the Silver Rimless Round Eyeglasses that complements his buzz cut and beard to the T.

3. Kate Beckinsale
In a space where bold eyeglass frames rule, the Underworld star Kate Beckinsale shows that the dainty, rimless glasses can look alluring too. She was spotted donning rectangle rimless eyeglasses for women like the Pro Titanium Gold Rimless Rectangle Eyeglasses at the Golden Globe Awards function. She was bewitching as ever!
When choosing rimless spectacles, consider the shape of your face and the frame size. For a perfect fit, make sure the eyeglass frame rests above your cheekbones.
4. Hillary Swank
She may play an astronaut on TV, but she dresses like one in real life too. Her eyeglasses included! Hilary Swank, Oscar-winning actress and star of Netflix’s space-themed show Away, was seen sporting unisex, rimless frames like the Black Rimless Geometric Eyeglasses that looked stunning on her.
Rimless eyeglasses have a reputation for being extremely delicate which may have been true during their inception phase. But the new generation of rimless frames relies on technology to make glasses that can withstand wear and rough use.
5. Shah Rukh Khan
The Badshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan’s incredible style keeps getting better with age. The actor is known for his excellent style decisions. Over the years, the star has achieved maximum glam out of every ensemble. SRK’s style preferences are a mixture of minimalism and ease. And the same goes for his eyeglasses. He was spotted wearing rimless eyeglasses for men like the Black Rimless Rectangle Eyeglasses on more than one occasion, with both monotone and colored temples.
Rimless spectacles feel light as a feather on your face, whereas full-frame eyeglasses weigh you down and may be the reason for that dent on your nose.
