Linda Hunt AKA ‘Hettie Lang’ in Round Frames

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

The iconic actress Linda Hunt who plays the irrascible and infinitely curious character ‘Hetty Lang’ in hit TV show NCIS LA wears some fantastic large round frames which are identical to the Black Eyewear Chico.  In spite of her tiny size the other characters find her quite intimidating.  Might it have something to do with her imposing glasses?

We also spot a resemblance with ‘Edna Mode’; cartoon character fashion designer from the Disney film The Incredibles.  Edna’s no-nonsense personality and round glasses are a direct homage to Edith Head, Holywood costume designer extraordinaire, but we think she looks a lot like Hetty Lang as well.
