Iron Chef-Worthy Set of Specs

Just as some contemplate which shirt to wear with those pants and which shoes best complement that belt, Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian gave deep consideration to which of his at least 12 pairs of glasses he would don before filming each episode of The Next Iron Chef: Redemption.

Frame-Worthy

No wires here — each pair of Iron Chef Zakarian's specs was made from durable plastic.

Feeling Blue

When it comes to sporting bright colors, Iron Chef Zakarian doesn't shy away; these royal-blue beauties are playful yet mature.

Animal Style

Not just anyone can pull off bold leopard-print frames, but lucky for him, Iron Chef Zakarian works this striking statement with ease.

Best in Black

Simple, clean and timeless, Iron Chef Zakarian's classic black specs could complete any look in a flash.

Clear Vision

With see-through frames such as these, Iron Chef Zakarian's glasses go practically unnoticed.

Dark and Stormy

Similar to his leopard-style specs, these dark-brown glasses boast a subtle animal print.

Nearsighted

When it comes to focusing on bright screens and close-up images or papers, Iron Chef Zakarian ditches all of his pairs of glasses and relies on his eyes alone.
