We can all agree that Ali Wong is one of the most brilliant comedians out there, but we were all probably surprised after learning that she’s also one of the most epic life-hackers – specifically speaking, the secret behind the iconic glasses she always wears in her stand-up and series/movies.
It turns out, most – if not all – of Wong’s glasses are actually sunglasses that she converted into prescription glasses, according to BuzzFeed. I know!
But while that may come as a huge surprise, this bit of information has actually been out there for years now. In November 2016, a commenter in Wong’s Reddit AMA revealed that the 37-year-old comedian’s glasses was part of the Barton Perreira Valerie 2013 collection.
This comment was also backed and supported by the brand’s official tweet in 2014.
