Dorothy Parker may have said, “Men seldom makes passes at girls who wear glasses,” but for Tina Fey, her spectacles are a badge of honor – most of the time.

“I don’t wear them when I am dressed up, because then I would look like Tootsie,” the Emmy-winning 30 Rock creator and star tells Harper’s Bazaar for its November issue.

In fact, Liz Lemon, Fey’s alter ego on her NBC sitcom, might soon “start taking her glasses off more and more,” she says. And less glasses would be a good thing for Lemon, whom Fey, 39, perceives as Sex and the City heroine Carrie Bradshaw’s bumbling alter ego.
