Brad Goreski and His Sexy Specs Part Ways With Rachel Zoe

30 Sep

It’s a sad day for all you fans of Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project – Brad Goreski has confirmed that he will be leaving Team Zoe, effective October 1.

“I love Rachel and she’s taught me everything I know,” Goreski, 33, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “But there’s a point where either I do it now or I’ll never know what it’s like to spread my wings and soar.”

This sounded like an amicable split at first, but as we know things are never that simple in fashion (or in reality TV for that matter) and now other reports beg to differ about this friendly parting. To confuse things even further, Zoe posted this super cute pic of them celebrating their last day together, so maybe all is well after all.

Now that Zoe has lost her dapper style director will there be a season 4 of the show? We don’t know, but we can say it will be hard to fill the fabulous shoes of this eyewear loving star.

Those bow ties and specs kept us tuning in every Tuesday, and now that they are no more, let’s pay tribute to his incredible eyewear style seen on the show.

Goreski, famous for rocking geek chic specs, has a love of these thick black frames, the Tycoon, from Oliver Peoples.

Being the nerdy frame lover that he is, he’s also crazy about the DSquared2 oversized aviator glasses.

We can’t wait to see more of him as he starts to “soar” on his own dressing some of Hollywood’s hottest. And keep repping the eyewear – it’s hot!

Hollywood Hunks in John Varvatos Shades

John Varvatos Eyewear has been making the rounds on some of our favorite Hollywood faces.

Seen sporting the V746 model with custom orange lenses for his role in the upcoming thriller Trespass, Nicolas Cage takes the classic aviator to a futuristic level.

The transparent lenses and bold color makes these one-of-a-kind shades the perfect accessory for an action packed blockbuster.

Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo “Melo” Anthony took time off the basketball court to celebrate John Varvatos’ Ten Year Anniversary Party.

Looking sharp in a textured sweater and cargo pants, Melo completed his look with blacked-out, flat top John Varvatos style V903 shades. While we love to see him shooting hoops, it’s nice to see how well Melo cleans up for special occasions.

Baby Beckham a Fashion Designer?

Just when you think the Beckham’s have done it all, they go and surprise us again.

At just eight-years-old,  this ambitious youngster has signed his first deal to design his own line of sunglasses. The label, named RB, will make trendy shades for cool kiddos everywhere.

“Romeo has a real eye for fashion,” a source told the paper.

“He has strong opinions on what works and what doesn’t, and has been badgering David and Victoria for months about designing his own sunglasses.”

It’s also rumored that fashion-forward cutie pies Suri Cruise and Leni (Heidi Klum’s daughter) will be modeling RB shades in the future.

If Romeo inherited any of his mother’s good taste, we’re sure that this line will be rockin’ and perfect for little tykes with style!
