After seeing all the thick, dark-framed eyeglasses in Ben Affleck's '70s espionage thriller Argo, Fash Track is not the slightest bit surprised that a modern eyewear trend has been started. Nor are we surprised to see two top trend-setting actresses wearing updated versions of the period eyewear.

Turns out both Kristen Stewart and Rashida Jones are sporting frames from the same company.

Breaking Dawn 2 star Kristen Stewart first wore her bookish eyeglasses to the Toronto Film Festival in September, then wore her Lookmatic Morgan glasses in black tortoise again at NYC's JFK airport on Nov. 23 on the day after spending Thanksgiving with boyfriend and costar Rob Pattinson. And on Nov. 26 at LAX, she wore them yet another time, also accompanied by Pattinson.

But Rashida Jones also sported the sexy librarian look, wearing her black tortoise Morgan frames to the Glamour magazine's "These Girls" event in New York City on Oct. 8.

The company's website offers an interactive tool to see how the glasses would look on anyone. Just click on LookMatic,  their online store offering designer frames, high-end sunglasses or inexpensive prescription glasses with lenses for under $100 in an assortment of period styles, including the '50s, '60s and '80s.
