A BARRY woman proved a sight for judges’ eyes when she became a regional runner-up in the competition to be named Spectacle Wearer of the Year.
Alexandra Porter, 26 of Barry was chosen from hundreds of entries from across Wales.
The awards - known as the Oscars of the glasses world, celebrate specs wearers from the UK and Republic of Ireland, across four age categories and were launched by former Spice Girl and stage sensation Melanie C earlier this year.
Alexandra said: "I couldn’t believe it! I was so chuffed as I didn’t think I would get this far so was really pleased.”
