Appearing again as the face of Dior, Rihanna wears the DiorMirrored frame with rose tinted lenses and a pretty pink lip. She shows her softer side as the rose tint gives a feminine glow to her face combined with her sleek wavy hair and girly earrings.

Follow her style and add a tint, or leave the original lenses in for an edgier look!

The Ray Ban Original Wayfarer never goes out of style, they have a cool retro feel making it easy to add a stylish twist to any outfit.
