Spexy A-Listers Crazy for Cannes

Crystal clear blue water, white sandy beaches, rolling green hills and intricately designed buildings—this was the blissful backdrop for the 66th annual Cannes International Film Festival in Cannes, France (aka one of the most luxe locations in the world). For the past 12 days, hundreds of celebs have been frolicking around the coveted city—at chic red carpet events, black-tie screenings and exclusive award ceremonies—to celebrate the art of filmmaking. And they sure did do it in spexy style, as lots of A-listers paired their glam get-ups with swanky specs ‘n sunnies.

Ladies and gents alike showed off a slew of trendy shades in varying silhouettes, from aviators, wayfarers and wraparounds, to squares, cat-eyes and butterfly frames. Neutral hues and patterns of nude, tortoise, jet black and gold were trending. But these sunglasses were certainly anything but blah. Mirrored and colored lenses, metallic brow-bar and temple embellishments, keyhole bridges and color blocking gave these sunnies added flair!

Meanwhile, cinema’s most debonair dudes proved their love for specs appeal throughout the festivities, showing off dapper rounds, and traditional and semi-rimless sleek rectangular glasses. Keepin’ it classy, they opted for fairly understated tones of black, gray and blue with tasteful silver accents for a bit of extra oomph!
