Lady Gaga Bad Romance Eyes
I assumed that the freakishly huge eyes Lady Gaga sports in her Bad Romance video were achieved through CGI. Until I read the article below, I didn't know you could actually semi-achieve this look in real life through circle contact lenses.

They give you that innocent doe-eyed look of an anime character. I would never ever put something in my eyes that wasn't fitted by a doctor though. Plus I'd feel kind of ridiculous wearing them, so for now, I'll stay on the sidelines and just admire from afar!
