The actors join Lena Dunham, Michael K. Williams, activist Gloria Steinem, writer Fran Lebowitz, and others for the New Yorkers for the Pupils Project, an initiative that provides vision care for public school students in the Big Apple. Each celebrity created a frame that reflected their "spirit" and style.
Dawson's Essex frames feature an oversized look, while Sevigny's - called the Tate - are transparent with crystals, and Dunham's Nancy frames are cinnamon red. Former "Boardwalk Empire" star Williams' Avery frames really pop too - they feature stainless steel and acetate, according to Variety.

Yesterday we launched our #PupilsProject Collection: a new collaboration to help kids in need get glasses. Alongside 10 inspiring New Yorkers, we designed a new set of limited-edition glasses and sunglasses—100% of every purchase from the collection will support our Pupils Project program, allowing us and our partners to provide students with free vision screenings, eye exams, and glasses.

The eyewear pieces start at $95 (GBP73) and 100 per cent of the profits will benefit the project.
"The Pupils Project is a wonderful cause dedicated to improving the lives and learning of children, beginning in the classroom," Sevigny says. "Without clear vision, students cannot learn effectively, impacting their education, success and lives. I am proud to support this great initiative to help the children of New York City."
"It's been incredible getting Pupils Project off the ground in the place where I grew up and went to school, and now where I'm raising my kids," Warby Parker co-founder and co-CEO Neil Blumenthal adds. "We're honoured that so many compelling talents support the essential work and growth of Pupils Project."
