Here at SelectSpecs, we’re always on the look out for celebrities wearing the latest eyewear trends. From Hollywood actresses to TV stars, we make it our mission to bring you the most up-to-date celebrity sunglasses style and tell you who’s wearing what.
Along the way though, we’ve noticed a few familiar faces that are hardly ever seen without their shades. Of course, sunglasses have always been a celeb’s favourite accessory, but these stars take their eyewear appreciation to a whole new level, wearing them for every occassion – whether they’re indoors or out!
So, which celebs are we talking about? Let’s take a look at our top 7 celebrities who love to wear (and are never without) sunglasses and what styles they’re wearing.
The whole Kardashian clan – Kim included – love their sunglasses and seem to have a new pair every week. Kim is a self-confessed eyewear addict and has even wrote an eyewear style guide on her blog. In it, she revealed her recommended sunglasses style and brands, which include ‘cool cat eye sunglasses’ or, her favourite style, over-sized square frames.
Get the Kim K look with a pair of square-framed sunglasses such as the Karl Lagerfeld KL869S sunglasses.
Happy sunny day!! Are you guys ready for #aintyourmama video!!?? A photo posted by Jennifer Lopez (@jlo) on
Jennifer Lopez is famous for her diva ways, with reports of outrageous demands everywhere she goes, so it’s no surprise that she loves to wear sunglasses at all times – even when there’s no sunshine to be seen. After all, indoor sunglasses are the staple of every diva. In this Instagram snap though, her shades actually shielded her eyes as she sunbathed.
JLo likes to mix it up with her style, wearing a range of different sunglasses including this pair of over-sized aviator shades which are similar to the Marc Jacobs MARC 66/S sunglasses.
23 years ago, I opened the Caldicot Centre for HIV Treatment at King’s College Hospital in South London. Today, David and I returned to launch a new expanded HIV testing initiative that will reach an additional 34,000 people in its first year. Thanks to everyone who welcomed us so warmly, and inspired us with their dedication to creating an AIDS-free world. @ejaf @davidfurnish @richardyoung110 #ShareTheLove
No lowdown on celebrities who love sunglasses would be complete without the King of eyewear – Elton John. The star has been wowing with his crazy statement shades since the sixties and even wore sunglasses on his wedding day. Some of his most memorable designs have included heart-shaped frames, luxe gold shades and palm-tree embellished glasses, but for everyday wear he usually opts for a simpler look.
Here, it looks like Elton is wearing the Dior So Real sunglasses. You can get a similar look with the Dior Homme DIORCOMPOSIT1.0 shades.
Introducing the new #VogueApp! Here, 4 reasons to download, according to Anna Wintour. Click the link in our bio to download now at the App Store. A video posted by Vogue (@voguemagazine) on
Vogue Editor-in-Chief and fashion royalty Anna Wintour is a serial ‘sunglasses indoors’ wearer and is rarely spotted without her trademark black shades. In fact, we don’t know if we’ve ever seen her sans shades. Recently, she caused a bit of controversy when she kept her sunglasses on during the Oscars. When asked why she wears her sunglasses inside, she explained: “They are seriously useful. I can sit in a show and if I am bored out of my mind, nobody will notice… At this point, they have become, really, armor.”
Rumour has it that her shades are Chanel, but you can steal Anna’s signature style with any pair of classic black shades such as the Gucci GG 3577/S sunglasses.
Since her Posh Spice days, Victoria Beckham has become quite the fashionista. As well as launching her own label, she regularly attends fashion events and has her personal style scrutanised in magazines, which is probably why she’s such a big fan of sunglasses – not only do they add a chic edge to her look, but they’re a great way to hide from lurking paparrazi.
As you can see, Victoria loves her sunglasses so much, she even wears them when she’s getting a facial! We suspect that Vic’s shades may be from her own eyewear collection, but the Celine CL 41756 sunglasses are a great look-a-like.
The blue and the dim #KoonsxGoogle – Bono A photo posted by U2 Official (@u2) on
Sunglasses are a rockstar essential and Bono knows how to rock a great pair of shades; his tinted sunglasses collection have become part of his signature style. But it has been revealed that the U2 star doesn’t just wear sunglasses at all times to look cool – he actually suffers from glaucoma which leaves his eyes sensitive to light.
Whatever the reason for them, Bono has some seriously stylish shades such as these blue tinted Revo aviators. The Raconteur RE1011 sunglasses are available online at SelectSpecs.
Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen
Last but not least, we have not just one but two celebs who love to wear sunglasses. Recently, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen shared their first ever selfie and, of course, the diva duo were both wearing sunglasses. The Olsen twins try to stay out of the limelight, but when they are spotted they almost always hide their eyes behind a pair of over-sized designer frames in their favourite colour – black.
In their Sephora Instagram selfie, Mary-Kate and Ashley are wearing a pair of wayfarer-style frames just like the Ray Ban RB2132 sunglasses.
