Swoon Over Eyewear at the Oscars

The Super Bowl of award shows, better known as the Academy Awards, took place last night with Anne Hathaway and James Franco as the highly anticipated hosts. As expected, the night was filled with over-the-top glamour, dramatic performances and light-hearted skits. Some critics were less than thrilled about the hosts, but that doesn’t put a damper on a show satiated with top honors, high-fashion and good company.

Quite a few of Hollywood’s elite spruced up their garb with a little help from our favorite accessory: eyewear.

As with most award shows this year, geek chic styles definitely took center stage.

Understated elegance also showed face in minimalistic rimless, semi-rimless and translucent frames.

Sunglasses also had their moment on the red carpet in classic and contemporary fashions like tinted lenses, aviators and more.

These A-listers looked sophisticated and Oscar-gold worthy, and regardless of whether they took home the trophy or not, they are eyewear winners in our eyes!
