Unnecessary glasses have become an in vogue accessory for NBA stars' post game news conferences, but who's behind this latest fashion trend?
Rachel Johnson is her name and style is her game. Johnson is the personal stylist for NBA stars such as LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Chris Paul, Amar'e Stoudemire and many others.
By the way, if you have a personal stylist, it's a sign you're doing pretty well in life.
Johnson says she supports LeBron and other stars wearing the unneeded bifocals. "I completely support it when it’s done in moderation," she said.
Deception is apparently the main reason James goes for the educated eyewear look.
"When you’re in a business meeting or any situation in which a gentleman needs to present himself in a very serious light. It’s a great way to change the way people perceive you," Johnson said.
As for the headband LeBron often wears on the court, Johnson was asked if it's her client's way of hiding his very visible receding hairline.
"No, no. He’s extremely active on the court, always flying around, blocking, doing more than anyone else. It’s not really a fashion statement. It’s definitely more about function," Johnson explained.
James can now ask his personal stylist what accessories to wear with an NBA championship ring.
