Mirror Mirror on the wall, which celeb sunnies top them all? The A-List are going crazy for all things mirrored this season and we at B Sunglasses agree that this is definitely a trend we can get on board with!
Both Moschino and Trussardi debuted round mirrored shades on their catwalk earlier this year as this season’s hot Spring/Summer look yet these iridescent beauties have a great retro feel which proves that mirrored shades aren’t just for cops.
Last month we covered the London leg of the Ray-Ban® Envision Tour where the who’s who in fashion, art and music flocked to celebrate Ray-Ban®’s mirrored Outshine lens. Nightclub entrepreneur Diego Bivero Volpe and actress pal Olivia Grant both rocked up in their mirrored Aviators respectively and sipped cocktails on the rooftop of a Dalston bunker. If there’s one way to celebrate mirrored lenses, it’s almost definitely with a drink in hand.
Meanwhile, pop princess Rita Ora has also been trailblazing the mirrored lens in abundance. Firstly she was spotted at the Lacoste L!VE Coachella Desert Pool Party in a pair of Crystal Carrera Wayfarers with pink lenses in April. Then in May, the fashion-forward singer complimented her new tropical blue hairdo with a pair of Tom Ford Nastasya mirrored cateye shades before giving them a second outing at Glastonbury.
Rita is not the only one with a love for reflective surfaces; the new mummy brigade was also no exception to this seasonal fad. LA based star Jessica Alba went for an ‘80s look in flashy cobalt blue frames whilst Hilary Duff opted for a cool mermaid green lens. DJ and presenter Fearne Cotton is also repeat offender and was recently papped wearing a grey pair of mirrored sunnies whereas Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively donned a shiny set of silver mirrored Aviators for a New York magazine shoot; coupling them with flowing sun-kissed locks and a subtle tan.
The good news is that this trend is not just for the ladies… High School Musical heartthrob Zac Efron loves a classic mirrored Aviator whilst US R&B star Jason Derulo rocks the sport-style square frames with typical cool guy style. We think mirrored lenses create great bold look that gives a touch of glamour. The array of colours and styles makes them perfect for festivals and they can offset a golden tan on the beach like no other.
What is it about these shiny lenses that get these stars all worked up like magpies?
Here’s a few of our top reasons….
