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:

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.

All Eyes On Spring 2011 Eyewear Trends

10 Mar

Full of chic shapes, dazzling details and warm colors, eyewear this spring is making a statement. From geek chic looks to retro influences and sporty inspirations, there are endless options that offer something for everyone.

Women’s eyewear trends include:

Retro Prep

With influences from the ‘50s and ‘60s, this trend is one part sass and one part class. Cat-eyes are still on top – in extreme or relaxed, teardrop styles. Bold browline frames are must-haves for geek chic prepsters, and trendsetters will drool over new, round shapes taking center stage. Ladylike hues of tortoise, pinks, creamy neutrals and pearly finishes are fresh, while vivacious hues or pops of color are flirty.

Disco Diva

The decade ruling fashion this spring is, without a doubt, the 1970s. Disco queens will delight in the groovy eyewear options that have burst onto the scene. When it comes to sunglasses this season, bigger is better and the squoval (squared oval) is king. Luscious berry tones, tonal and marbleized effects, bedazzled details, gradient lenses and rose or amber tinted lenses are quintessential.

Urban Edge

Sporty and downtown styles collide for a look that is uber edgy and chic. Smoky gradients, bold metal accents and luxurious leathers add daring details to shields, aviators and geometric shapes. Adrenalin junkies and daredevils get their fix in mixed-media frames, fashion forward cut outs and rebellious blacks. Mirrored or blacked out lenses add panache and show off a futuristic vibe perfect for any fierce fashionista.

The latest eyewear looks for men include:

Modern Heritage

Taking cues from simpler times, eyewear this season is all about clean, classic styles from the past with a modern touch. Round frames – a la John Lennon – have emerged as a key shape for specs and sunglasses in wire or plastic. Geek chic browline and wayfarer styled frames continue to rule the streets and are more dashing than ever. Keyhole bridges also add charming detail to these dapper styles.

Street Pop

Eyewear this spring is sporty and spicy, giving men the perfect chance to pump up their style. Shields are an absolute must, as well as colored lenses that add spunk to typical guy frames. Tough metal details or matching black frames and lenses are ultra sleek and mysterious, while floating lenses take frames into the styles of tomorrow. Thick plastics, white, blue and two-toned frames keep things fun and fresh.

Globe Trotter

Worldly styles, textures and details prove to be great inspirations for men’s fashion, especially when it comes to eyewear. Frames this spring are sultry, yet earthy, with intriguing details and natural colors. Rustic wooden frames or accents and rich leathers make the look chic and effortless. Aviators command attention in both classic and updated styles, with the navigator (squared aviator) showing face as well.

Colin Firth Looks Like Oscar Gold in Michael Kors Shades

1 Mar

The last few months have been a whirlwind for top actors, especially for those who starred in The Kings Speech. After rave reviews and taking home awards at the Directors Guild of America, Producers Guild of America, Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globes, it came as no shock that the film was nominated for a whopping 12 Academy Awards.

Last Sunday was the moment of truth, and The Kings Speech didn’t disappoint as it took home four of the most coveted Oscars of the night, including Best Picture. Colin Firth, who played stutter-embattled King George VI, snagged the Best Actor category and delivered both a self-deprecating and humorous acceptance speech.

We can’t help but adore this year’s Best Actor and his impeccable sense of style. We loved the classic suit and bowtie that he rocked at the Academy Awards, but we like it even more when Colin jazzes up his look in dapper frames.
