Movie Matriarchs of 2016: The Sunglasses Inspired by Female Leads in Upcoming Movies

There are so many amazing new movies to watch in 2016 and here at SelectSpecs, we’re pretty excited about what’s to come. We also believe this coming year to be the year of #girlpower, with January’s top movie, Joy, leading the way.

Yep, we’re absolutely sure of it ladies. 2016 is the time to kick some serious butt and here are 3 leading ladies who will prove it too.

Check out our top three empowering movies featuring kick-ass female characters who are all sporting a pair of perfect shades. Because our favourite movies wouldn’t be favourites without a pair of designer sunglasses now would they? Here’s a look at the movie matriarchs of 2016, a bit about the movies they’re starring in and of course, a SelectSpecs sunglasses style steal!

Joy (Released, January 2016)

J-Law is one of the most powerful women in the film industry right now. She recently hit back at the media and shared her Paparazzi harassment stories on Vanity Fair and she’s currently flying the flag for anti-sexism battles against Hollywood. Could she be the woman to save the world from all things bad and evil? It seems plausible, doesn’t it? Katniss Everdeen certainly had that pressure on her shoulders in The Hunger Games and Jen’s latest character, Joy Mangano (based on American inventor and entrepreneur), is just as much a superwoman as District 12’s arrow-shooting sweetheart.

Just released at the cinema and based on a heart-warming, awe-inspiring, butt-motivating real life story of a poor single mum who had to support her family, this movie is well worth a watch. And to steal J-Law’s sunglasses style, we recommend the Sunset+ 251 unisex glasses.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (Coming Soon, 4th March)


Released on 4th March, this epic movie follows the story of an American female journalist who recounts her time as a war correspondent in Afghanistan and Pakistan. With a serious back story and underlying plot, this film takes a sobering situation and turns it into a comedy that women everywhere can relate to. Tina Fey plays a strong, unbeatable female lead but her clumsy nature and down-to-earth attitude to life makes her loveable at once. We love her because she’s both inspiring and likeable and her movie wardrobe reflects that. Get Tina Fey’s happy-go-lucky, fun-loving tomboy style with these Ray-Ban RB2132 New Wayfarer sunglasses.

How to Be Single (Coming Soon, 12th February)

 Strong and influential leading ladies don’t always have to be fighting crime, saving lives or reporting in Afghanistan to get our #girlpower badge of honour. Being able to make people laugh is definitely a sign of feminine power and it’s something that we’re always proud of when we find new, up and coming female comedians. We’ve been head over heels in love with Rebel Wilson ever since Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect, and now Rebel teams up with funny gal Dakota Johnson for another tummy-tickling ROFLcopter of a movie. If you’re loving their bezzie pal sunglasses style as seen in the trailer, here are two designer frames to help you steal their style.

Get Dakota’s funky mirrored lenses look with the Dior DIORMIRRORED sunglasses…

Or copy Rebel’s feminine chic frames with the Emporio Armani EA4030 cat-eye specs…
