Headlight Design

It seems to me that car designers have lost their minds. The shape of headlight housings are getting so ugly and baroque. Whatever happened to "the circle" or even "the ellipse?" Those are viable shapes-- harmonious and balanced when integrated into the overall design of the car. But, nowadays it seems like headlights are supposed to evoke "fierce eyes," or maybe "pizza slices." I think it looks terrible. Oh well.

It's like, after seeing that post, I keep looking at other cars' headlights when I'm driving. It's like, "ovals...rectangles...ellipses...pizza slices...cat eyes...baroque ugliness...." I never noticed it before, but yeah! Ha ha ha!
