If there's one criticism of Google Glass that gets repeated more than any other, it's that the augmented-reality eyewear can make its user look a bit like a half-hearted Geordi La Forge impersonator (read: a tad dorky).
And yet, right there in the massive September issue of Vogue is a 12-page photo spread featuring Google Glass in full-blown, future-meets-couture glamour shots. Vogue's September issue is the most important of the year and a benchmark of sorts for the fashion industry. This year it's packed with Silicon Valley geek cred -- there's also a profile of Yahoo's Marissa Mayer in its pages.
We've seen a number of demonstrations of how Glass can be useful in different ways, be it at the zoo or while popping the big question, but this is the most high-profile example we've come across thus far of Glass as high-fashion accessory.
The Glass glam shots won't be available online until August 27, but you can pick up a hard copy at newsstands now. It's also great for weight training when you're done with it.
