Glasses are now undeniably at the forefront of cool. And premium eyewear brand Luxottica makes frames that will have everyone staring for all the right reasons. The Italian company has tapped a few of this generation's coolest trendsetters that intersect the fields of music, fashion, and design to star in its latest campaign: Class of 2016.

This means that people like Hari Nef, Iris Apfel, Rejjie Snow, Mike the Ruler, Gray Sorrenti, and Mae Lapres are putting a modern spin on traditional high school stereotypes. Emerging or established, these style leaders and creative mavericks are changing the way that everyone sees the world. If anything, the campaign will make you wish that yearbooks actually turned out this good. (If you're currently on your yearbook committee, take notes.) 

We recently spoke with Nef about being the leader of the pack in the Class of 2016, and how her perspective on the world at large has changed since she was a high school student. (Shout-outs to the Class of 2011!) Read the Q&A while you flip through the campaign images in the gallery, below.
