Sunglasses in the Movies

Fashion and film go hand in hand, so it’s no surprise that sunglass trends of today are largely due to the appearance of sunglasses in the movies. Many sunglasses were made popular by the stylish actors and actresses that adorned them in blockbusters, and if the film was popular, so were the shades. Here’s a list of some of the shades that have been made famous by the silver screen.

Ray-Ban Wayfarers
Ray-Ban Wayfarers
These timeless shades have been popularized in film time and time again throughout the decades. They were first noticed in 1955 on James Dean in his classic film, Rebel Without a Cause. Sean Connery continued their popularity in the 1960s via James Bond in From Russia With Love and Thunderball, as did Catherine Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Tom Cruise brought them back in 1983 with his first blockbuster Risky Business.

Aviators
Ray-Ban Aviators Sunglasses
Though they were invented in the 1930s, Aviators didn’t get a boost from Hollywood until 1983, when Tom Cruise wore them in the 80s machismo flick Top Gun. As styles transformed over the years, so did the Aviators. Johnny Depp adorned orange lens shades in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and Carrie-Anne Moss had a black pair in The Matrix. Also making an impact in Police films, Aviators are the standard sunglass eyewear for most cop characters in film. The Aviator style is no longer a Ray-Ban monopoly – many other brands like Oakley, Maui Jim and Serengeti now carry the famous sunglasses in different styles and designs.

Persol
Persol PO2424S Sunglasses
While most actors were wearing Ray-Bans, Steve McQueen went against the grain when he wore the folding Persol 714 sunglasses in The Thomas Crown Affair, and The Getaway. These blue-tinted shades became so popular that one of McQueen’s personal pairs was auctioned off for $70,200 in 2006. Daniel Craig of the James Bond flick Casino Royale also wore Persol shades while he was speeding down the streets of Monte Negro.

Teashades

These round-frame sunglasses were first made famous by John Lennon of the Beatles, but their popularity continued in Hollywood by several actors and actresses, including Woody Harrelson in Natural Born Killers, and Collin Chou in The Matrix Revolutions.

Gargoyles

Arnold Schwarzenegger made himself a Gargoyle icon we he wore the classic 80s shades in the first Terminator. Though Arnold moved on to a pair of Persols in the sequel, anyone who sees a pair of Gargoyles’ ANSI Classics is reminded of the flesh covered, futuristic robot.

Blinde

For a movie in which almost every character wears shades, The Matrix producers decided to go for a relatively unknown sunglasses company called Blinde. Each actor for the movie has a pair of sunglasses personally designed and hand manufactured for their character.

Timeless Sunglasses Shapes Worn by Liz Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor was a starlet, an activist, and the paradigm of Hollywood glamour since her first very successful movie as an adult, A Place in the Sun. Her success transition from a child actress to a celebrated star of the silver screen, as well as her stunning beauty, made her an instant trendsetter and fashion icon.

It wasn’t only her impeccable wardrobe or opulent jewelry that defined her style but also her impressive collection of designer sunglasses. In fact, Elizabeth Taylor trail blazed Hollywood’s obsession for sophisticated, bold, and glamour sunglasses.

Press images and paparazzi photos alike often showed Elizabeth Taylor gracefully donning sunglasses that later became wildly popular with the Hollywood elite, New York socialites, and admiring women the world over. Whether it was a stylishly oversized pair or popular cat-eye frames, Elizabeth Taylor wore them with style and grace. This, in turn, made these styles synonymous with Hollywood glamour.

What is even more impressive is Elizabeth Taylor’s fashion legacy. Sunglasses continue to be some of the most popular and sought after fashion accessories, and the iconic styles Elizabeth Taylor made famous have become the standard of fashion sunglasses today.

Many of these styles, while updated with modern technologies, are easily accessible through FramesDirect.com . From styles by Yves Saint Laurent to Versace classics, FramesDirect.com carries many of the same kinds of frames that rounded out Elizabeth Taylor’s elegant and highly fashionable sunglass collection. This means that everyone can feel as beautiful and elegant as the violet-eyed star herself.

See more about Elizabeth Taylor’s fashion sense on the recent Lifetime movie network original program Liz & Dick.

Examples of her favorite styles
