Getting to Know Hue

30 Mar

Things are looking warm and bright for 2011. From uplifting honeysuckle to the cool hues of blue, eyewear styles are rich in color this season – even the lenses.

When it comes to eyewear this spring, color is showing face in a big way. From colored lenses to sultry specs, eyewear is definitely a statement piece that will add an instant wow factor to your wardrobe.

Here’s a look at some of the hottest hues in lenses and frames for the coming season:

Take a Tint
Lenses in blue and green pack a punch while amber and rosy tints add femininity.

The King’s Speech Cast Gets Some Lacoste Lovin’

23 Mar

The all-star cast of The King’s Speech continued to reign supreme throughout award season, with the majority of the cast being nominated for their performances at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Golden Globes and Oscars. While two of our favorite veteran actors, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter, didn’t strike Oscar gold for their supporting roles, they certainly gained well-deserved recognition for their acting chops.

We’ve already seen how handsome fellow cast mate and Oscar winner Colin Firth looks in eyewear, now it’s time to see how Geoffrey and Helena fared.

Geoffrey never failed to show off his dapper style throughout award season, especially in retro and geek chic specs. He looks just as charming (if not more so) in a tortoise pair of Lacoste L616S shades with a keyhole bridge by Marchon Eyewear.

Helena, on the other hand, sported round, blacked out sunnies on the red carpet, but it’s nice to see her pretty peepers as she dons pink, butterfly shaped Lacoste L2607 specs by Marchon Eyewear.

Mila Kunis Sizzles in Lacoste Shades

11 Mar

Mila Kunis has been on Hollywood overdrive since the release of her critically acclaimed film Black Swan. Besides supporting the endless movie promotions and premieres, the actress has received impressive accolades for her performance as the rival ballerina to Natalie Portman’s character, resulting in a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award for best supporting actress.

After months of grueling ballet training, dropping 20 pounds, promoting the film and surviving the stressful award season, it looks like Mila can finally sit back and enjoy the limelight.

She definitely looks vibrant and healthy in oversized Lacoste L110 shades with rosy, gradient lenses by Marchon Eyewear.
