Celebrities set trends in just about everything. When they step out on the town, we want to know what they’re wearing, where they’re wearing it and how they look so good. Colored contacts are no exception. When a brown-eyed actress steps out with blue eyes, the paparazzi and the fans take notice.

Here’s our hot list of celebrity eyes.
