Eye Love Celeb Style

We all know that celebrities set the stage when it comes to fashion, and eyewear is no exception. To give you a jumpstart on the latest eyewear buzz, here are a slew of your favorite A-listers in some fabulous sunnies and specs.

This year’s dramatic comedy Larry Crowne made a box office splash with its charming storyline and star studded cast. It also showed off some serious eyewear fashions as two of the leading ladies—Julia Roberts and Gugu Mbatha-Raw—flaunted Face á Face shades. Julia shined in ‘70s-inspired ALOHA1 frames while Gugu delighted in vintage FIFTY2 ‘50s cat-eyes.

These next celebs show some Lacoste love with frames from Marchon. The gorgeous Shay Mitchell from Pretty Little Liars rocked oversized Lacoste L610S sunnies to achieve Hollywood perfection, while Max Irons, the heartthrob from Red Riding Hood, slipped on a pair of Lacoste L503S sunglasses for a dapper look. Looking like the sexiest werewolf ever, True Blood’s Joe Manganiello posed in the tortoise Lacoste L615S. Blake Griffin, the No. 1 NBA draft pick, tried on the same exact shades, and we have to admit, the 2011 Rookie of the Year pulled off the style flawlessly.

The beloved and renowned Philip Seymour Hoffman stars as Art Howe in this fall’s upcoming film Moneyball. To play up his athletic style, Hoffman’s character dons classic IZOD 729 rectangular shades by ClearVision Optical throughout the scenes of this sports drama. Unfortunately, the IZOD 729 shades are no longer available, but a similar style can be found in IZOD 751 frames. On the small screen, the infamous Matt Craven made guest appearances on NCIS as the Secretary of the Navy wearing semi-rimless IZOD 367 specs. Those frames definitely gave him the military edge his character needed.
