Long shot: sun-glasses? Were the glasses intended to improve her eyesight? To prevent her being recognized? If the latter, relevant by whom? Did she want to follow a fashion trend? To prove a point?

Did the glasses have prescription lenses? Did they have lenses at all?

were the glasses to protect her eyes? like in a laboratory? dentists?

or was she hard of hearing and had those glasses with little amplifiers in?

was it a fashion statement?

was she posing as someone else?

Sarah Palin lookalike contest? moose relevant?

does she need the glasses to support her false moustache?

is she wearing glasses because she has to peel a lot of onions?

is she trying to get used to wearing glasses for later on when she will need them?

is she protecting her eyes from something?

is she wearing glasses because she has a child who needs glasses and she's trying to convince them that it's OK to wear them?

Is her profession relevant?
Do the glasses affect her vision? Do they magnify?
Are they 3D glasses?
Is she wearing them for appearance? Do they help her see something?

And that's the ********SPOILER********


But I love your other suggestions too, Shez. However there's only one person who can win a Sarah Palin lookalike contest (Tina Fey, for those who don't know her) (:
