Golden Globes 2017 Eyewear Edition: Glasses of the Stars

The stars came out in droves for the 2017 Golden Globes awards ceremony last night. All eyes were on the red carpet, checking which celebrities brought their A-game. While La La Land was the clear winner, the film Moonlight and the television show Atlanta were on everyone’s lips as they collected the accolades. The audience was also filled with excitement when Brad Pitt took the stage to present.

But the big moment of the night went to Meryl Streep, the recipient of this year’s Cecil B. DeMille Award. Streep is regarded as one of the finest actresses in the film industry. She used her platform of recognition last night to address political concerns and issue a call-to-action for artists and journalists. Always the epitome of class, Streep looked regal in a black gown with bejeweled applique and, of course, a pair of glasses.

If you’re in the market for a coppery, semi-rimless, cat-eye frame like Meryl’s we’ve come up with a few options that fit the bill. The Lulu Guinness L750 eyeglasses are comparable. And this Vera Wang pair (Caitlin) are also similar. But you can take this look to the next level, with Lafont Indigo frames, a true style statement.

Billy Bob Thorton accepted the trophy for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series (Drama) for his performance in the Amazon Original Series Goliath wearing sunglasses that look a lot like the Ray-Ban Clubround.

And Steve Carell, along with Kristen Wiig, introduced the films nominated for best animated feature film. While handing out the award to Zootopia, Carell wore some interesting two-tone acetate frames that gave his look a retro twist. You too can be quirky-cool like Steve in these Shuron Sidewinder eyeglasses. Choose the “Black Fade” option or the popular “Crystal” clear version to take part in this throwback trend.

Celebrities are updating their sunwear, and we have the sunglasses scoop.

First off, a Ray-Ban love fest. Jennifer Lawrence has been spotted in the classic large aviator and Beyonce in the Clubmaster in brushed bronze. And with young actresses like Dianna Agron wearing the popular round, mirrored sunnies” we’re sure this flashy lens trend will become a summer staple.

Outside the realm of Ray-Ban has been actresses like Jamie King, taking style risks with Prada’s Voice sunglasses in green with blue gems. We love it paired with her classic white dress. Lastly, Reese Witherspoon recently opted for a neutral option with Tory Burch Panama shades in khaki-praline.

These ladies are always inspiring our eye style, and we can’t wait to see which sunglasses they put on next.

Stay tuned!

The Golden Globes may be over, but let’s not forget about the eyewear that stole the show. We’ve collected four looks of the nights most talked about accessory. First up, Lupita Nyong’o’s chic glasses that earned themselves their very own Twitter account. She selected a classic black frame with a touch of gold on the temples. We picked these Gucci frames because they are a close match to Lupita’s beautiful style. Second is Benedict Cumberbatch in the Persol frames above. It seems the actor enjoys wearing a frame that is not only handmade in Italy, but is timeless in style. We think Sherlock would totally approve.

Next is everyone’s favorite Office boss, Steve Carell. Nominated for his role in the “Foxcatcher”, he arrived at the Golden Globes in a beautiful square frame with a striped tortoise detail. The Ray-Ban frames above are eerily similar to the frames we saw walk the red carpet on Sunday. Lastly, we have the incredible Meryl Streep. An avid fan of eyewear, we were not surprised to see her flawlessly sport a wearable metal frame. The Ted Baker frame above is a similar look to the eyewear worn by one of Hollywood’s most beloved actresses. Looking for more eyewear to elevate your look? Shop more here!
