Steven Spielberg's The BFG introduces audiences to the wildly whimsical Giant Land, filled with glowing dreams that need to be caught and a monumental man sipping frobscottle. In the middle of the action is Sophie, a young girl snatched from her orphanage by the Big Friendly Giant and carried away on an extraordinary adventure. The character stands out for her relentless spunk, unending bravery, and seriously cute glasses. Where can you buy Sophie's glasses from The BFG? There are lookalikes out there for parents and kids alike.
Joanna Johnston was the costume designer for The BFG, according to IMDb. She's a frequent Spielberg collaborator, creating clothing for characters in movies including Lincoln, War Horse, and Saving Private Ryan. The BFG is one of the Oscar nominee's few forays into the fantastical. The BFG wears a plain vest and shirt while other giants opt for items such as kilts and capes. Sophie's style is clean and feminine, while the queen looks brilliant in blue. But, of all the cool costumes, Sophie's spectacles may be the prettiest accessory of all. Convincing children to wear glasses can be a challenge, but Sophie's bold pair may prompt even the most skeptical kid to rock lenses with pride.
Though it's unclear exactly which pair actor Ruby Barnhill wears in the movie, there are many styles online that look strikingly similar. Here are some options for kids:
These tortoise and orange frames come with a free upgrade to impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses and cost $100.
