Stellar Eyewear Styles at the SAG Awards

31 Jan

Award season is in full swing, and, as usual, the stars did not fail to delight us with their decadent red carpet fashions at the 17th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards last night. With everything from flowing gowns to swanky suits to impeccable eyewear, these A-listers were right on point for their big night out.

Geek chic frames certainly dominated the scene, traditional rectangular styles also showed face, and blacked out sunnies added a dramatic element to the evening. Overall, we have to say, these celebs rocked it from head to toe regardless of whether or not they went home with a SAG trophy.

Color Me Pretty in BCBGMAXAZRIA Specs

28 Jan

Feel like you’re always wearing black during the winter? Whether it is reflecting your mood or hiding a few pounds left over from the holidays, it does seem to be the signature color during the colder months.

Don’t get us wrong, black is fabulous, but it always looks best with a pop of color. Consider swooping up a pair of BCBG MAXAZRIA specs by ClearVision Optical to punch up your black ensemble. Each new style is bold, avant-garde and available in hot spring colors.

Artsy ladies might want to try the Adalina frame with its soft cat-eye shape and open pierced temples. We love the vibrant teal color, but Adalina is also available in black and brown.

For a stylish, but more subdued look try Belinda, a metal, semi-rimless butterfly frame with bi-laminate temples donning the BCBG logo. This luscious plum tone and colorful temples are fun and feminine. It is also available in black and brown.

Beverly Hills Beauty Taylor Armstrong in bebe Shades

26 Jan

A guilty pleasure for many, Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills always lives up to the expectation—drama, drama, drama! Filled to the brim with over-the-top glamour, excessive spending, cat fights galore and plastic surgery, this show is irresistible and endlessly entertaining. Unfortunately, the first season has come to an end, but alas, the reunion (part one) airs tomorrow night at 9 pm EST, and let’s admit it, the reunions are always way more juicy than the regular episodes.

Born and raised in Oklahoma, one of our favorite cast members, Taylor Armstrong, is no longer a small town gal. Since becoming a Beverly Hills resident, Taylor is now the business-savvy Founder and President of eImplement, Inc., a management consulting firm. She also has a mind for fashion, as seen here in these statement-making oversized white bebe (BB7005) sunnies with metal studded temples and gradient lenses by Altair Eyewear.

Can’t wait to see how the infamous feud between Taylor and Kim Richards unravels tomorrow!

Vivacious Valentino Eyewear

21 Jan

Valentino has unleashed their divine spring/summer 2011 eyewear collection by Safilo Group and after a quick glimpse, you’ll see that these frames are nothing short of amazing. If you’re looking for dramatic effects, luxurious materials and meticulous detailing, you’re in dire need of one (or more, of course!) of these frames.

The collection is broken down into two categories: Rock Attitude and Dark Romanticism.

Rock Attitude is all about being fun and flirty with an edgy twist. Valentino raised the bar when it comes to style with leather textures, metal studs, diamond-like finishes, exquisite temple embellishments and gradient lenses. Butterfly, wayfarer and square shapes steal the show and offer a great way for you to show off your rocker-chick personality.

On the other hand, Dark Romanticism is more mysterious and regal. The iconic rose motif carved into the temples delivers crisp, geometric lines that demand attention. The glossy finish is scintillating to the senses and will appease any fashionista’s need for glitz and glamour.
