We’d like to know, what’s the first thing that comes to mind whenever you hear the name Jonah Hill?
Do you normally think about the chubby sidekick in Judd Apatow's comedies? Or a guy whose outrageous comedic outbursts — and vexatious teenage humor — ended up earning him a seat among the greats in Hollywood’s Hall of Fame?
These questions pretty much sum up Jonah Hills' acting career, as an enrapturing journey of artistic growth and reinvention.
Nevertheless, he’s not just a gifted actor that some of you have come to love and adore. He’s also a director, writer, and more surprisingly, an aspiring eyewear fashion icon.
Beyond his acting prowess, Hill has become a fashion icon, with his eyewear choices standing out as a distinctive element of his signature look.
This article delves into the fascinating world of Jonah Hill's glasses, exploring the evolution of frames that have not only adorned his face but have also become a statement of personal style.
Join us on a journey through the lenses of fashion and discover the allure behind the actor's iconic eyewear selections.
Jonah Hill’s Bottega Veneta Eyewear
The Bottega Veneta brand was founded in 1966, in Vincenza, by Renzo Zengiaro and Michele Taddei. Since then, the company has grown to become a renowned luxury house, mostly associated with ready-to-wear clothing, well-crafted leather items, and exquisite eyewear.
When Superbad (the 2007 teenage comedy film) was about to celebrate its 15th anniversary, Jonah Hill was spotted by paparazzi outside his apartment, rocking the Bottega Veneta BV1162S glasses. This iteration often comes with acetate frames, tinted lenses, as well as straight temples that have the company’s logo engraved on the side.
If we’re being completely transparent, these glasses are an acquired taste. Only eyewear enthusiasts who love donning head-turners would right away go for them, as they are designed to make a very bold fashion statement.

Jonah Hills Glasses in Wolf of Wallstreet
Our B-Frame from the Linea collection in Golden Saffron would be perfect to get the look.
Donnie's second look from the film was a little more refined. In-keeping with a more wealthy sartorial style you'd expect from a wealthy Wallstreet mogal.
Again we're going to stick with it most likely being an Oliver Peoples frame. These were rife in the 80/90's and the go-to for any glasses-wearer of that era. Especially as they were veiwed as a bit pricey so an excellent opportunity to display ones wealth.
If you're looking to recreate this look yourself we'd recommend the Oliver Peoples Finley 1993 Vintage frame. It's a perfect replica of that iconic tortoise acetate frame found during that era.
If you can't get ahold of the 1993 vintage version the updated style could be the best option: Finley Esq OV5298U 1003 Cocobolo. Same classic shape with the signature keyhole bridge and dark imitation acetate with golden flecks of yellow and amber.
