Seeing is believing when it comes to glammed up prescription sunnies...Things happen when you are old enough to have grown up laughing along with comedic genius Joan Rivers on TV. One day, you start to need glasses, if only to read Heidi Abromowitz's little black book (purportedly the size of an encyclopedia).LensCrafters had a Prescription Designer Sunglasses soiree last month-- with special guest Joan Rivers, a self-admitted sunglass whore-- to help discover your inner eyewear personality (the “style maven,” the “classic,” the “connoisseur” or the “adventurer”) from a quicky quiz and then to select a glam pair of RX-friendly, multi-tasking designer sunglasses.No surprise, I ended up a cross between "the nothing is too good for" The Connoisseur and "nothing comes between you and your Fashion Police" Style Maven, which pointed me in the direction of nabbing a giant pair of Tifffany & Co. tortoise shades that could be turned into prescription designer sunglasses! You know I'm a sucker for anything in an orange, red, or turquoise box.WATCH: How to select sunglasses for your face shape. Our uber cool (and talented) art director, the filmmaker Vincent Gagliostro, ended up as a "level-headed traditionalist" Classic with some Ray-Bans that he had tinted a fab shade of noir to wear as his evening eyeglasses.

Ok, I was (sort of) eavesdropping. Here I was,...

The best-ever foods to prevent aging....Eat loads of leafy green vegtablesNobody wants to age. Nobody wants wrinkles or a waddly neck. So, how do we battle the aging process? Well, the quickest answer is---the way your skin and body ages depends on how you treat your body, inside and out!Here's what most people don't get: your aesthetic beauty depends more on the strength of your digestion and metabolism, the quality of your sleep, how often you have a bowel movement, the foods you eat and the cleanliness of your liver than on scrubs, cleansers and anti-wrinkle creams that cost you your entire paycheck. When you proactively take care of your internal health, your external appearance will truly radiate with that envied youthful glow.In this two part series, first off we'll discuss the absolute-hands-down-best-ever foods to eat to prevent aging and boost collagen production and secondly I will explain to you the uber-importance of a healthy emotional state and abundant confidence in creating lasting beauty into your 50's, 60's and 70's!One of the most important ways to beat the aging demons is to eat as healthy and as clean as possible.Here are the top 8 dietary rules you need to follow to battle aging:

BEAUTY IS HOW YOU SEE YOURSELF- You don't have to wiggle like Marilyn, or have a camera focused on your face to beguile, but you do have to radiate inner beauty to hold the spotlight. Discover self-admiration. Feel praiseworthy about yourself. Glow.

Discover your inner Carrie, if you must.Did you ever notice how some women can barely pull off wearing a pair of jeans and a T-shirt without looking like they are about to clean out the garage? While there are others who are the masters of the craziest, most way out combination that always seems to work on them?From the character Carrie in "Sex and the City" to fashion impresario Anna Piaggi, pictured here, the Italian fashion writer and style icon who is sort of the precursor to Lady Gaga's style, no nutty combination is too much, yet people covet their personal style and sense of daringness.But would you REALLY wear what they wear, as they wear it? Not really, I bet.But I do bet that you may wonder how to wear anything with aplomb.
