" Elegance is the only beauty that never fades."
- Audrey Hepburn
Many famous actors and celebrities have made glasses a key part of their unique look and signature style. These classic models have proven themselves timeless, and you can adapt them to your own everyday look. Use your frames to add a little history and culture!
Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s is without a doubt one of Hollywood’s most iconic young female characters. Her classy, Channel-style look defined an era and continues to be emulated by women to this day. She was distinguished from head to toe, and her Oliver Goldsmith sunglasses suited her perfectly. Today, Chloé or Calvin Klein Platinum let you recreate that look.
Artist Andy Warhol always had his own quintessential style. Combined with his white hair, the clear lenses he wore gave him an almost ghostly look. True to the age of pop art, his frames were made of plastic. They can make anyone look a little more artsy and playful. Combine a Lacoste or ÖGA frame with some skinny jeans and a striped sweater to pay homage to Warhol.
Jackie Onassis made oversized sunglasses the very pinnacle of style. The former Mrs. Kennedy was the very personification of fashion and elegance, and these glasses became her signature. Today, oversized sunglasses remain synonymous with Jackie. For truly cosmopolitan class, try sunglasses by Michael Kors or Marc by Marc Jacobs.
Ever since Janis Joplin wore round frames, they have been associated with this great rocker and the age of peace and love itself. Today, stars like Mary-Kate Olsen and Cara Delevingne wear them to create a retro, bohemian, hippy look. Mix frames by Fendi or Prodesign with a poncho and some wavy hair, and you’ll look like you’re ready for Woodstock!
