Sunglasses are oh-so glamorous and have commonly been associated with the rich and famous. Although a lot of stars use snazzy shades to disguise themselves from paparazzi, celebrities also wear sunglasses as stylish accessories.
“Sunglasses come in all shapes and sizes and can be perceived as sophisticated or trendy. They can be geometric, oversized, thin-framed, thick-framed, tinted lenses or as classic as a sleek pair of Ray-Ban aviators,” writes a blogger for Huffington Post. “Celebrities, musicians and fashion icons have made certain sunnies a consistent staple in their wardrobe, claiming a trademark look and leaving a lasting impression.”
Here are a few well-known celebs – both past and present- known for their sunglasses:
• Audrey Hepburn: Audrey Hepburn was one of the most glamorous women in the world and her look wouldn’t be complete without her dramatic sunglasses. The image of Hepburn with her pearls, dark sunglasses and long gloves in Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of the most well-known pictures in pop-culture.
• Sir Elton John: The ‘Rocket Man’ himself is known for his rose-tinted glasses. Elton John is rarely seen without his shades, even when he is playing a concert indoors!
• The Blues Brothers: The Blues Brothers, who were played by actors John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, took sunglasses to a new level of cool in the iconic film. The dark shades and frames became a popular 80s trend after the film debuted – a look that is certainly coming back in style!
