RuPaul & Michelle Visage


It was a great night for reality star RuPaul, who bagged two Emmy’s for best Reality Host and best Reality Competition Show, for his cult smash hit RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Joined on stage by his crew and co-stars, RuPaul and fellow judge and friend Michelle Visage look ecstatic in the celebratory shot above.

We love the complimenting monochrome looks from the two stars, and the equally gorgeous eyewear. Michelle opted for a beautiful cat-eye shape, perfect for the red carpet and any formal occasion.

We think the Paul Costelloe 5185 frames below are a great match – check them out for your own elegant eyewear look!

Paul Costelloe 5185

RuPaul cuts a sharp shape in a pair of bold square frames. The statement eyewear is perfect for the irrepressible star, who never passes up an opportunity for self-expression.

We think the Infinity T8205 is the perfect match. Check them out below!

Nico Santos


Crazy Rich Asians proved the runaway success of the year, making household names of its stars and breathing new life into the romcom genre.

Nico Santos, who plays fashion designer Oliver T’Sien in the film, looks suitably slick in the shot above. Sporting a blue velvet tux, the star complimented his bold look with a pair of statement glasses.

The white frames pop against his blue tux, and is a great way to keep things stylish and simple.

Check out the Savannah 8122 frames below to emulate Nico’s look!

Ted Danson


We adore Ted Danson’s simple slick look here. Currently starring in The Good Place, the actor looked super suave in a classic black tuxedo, proving that traditional doesn’t have to mean outdated when it comes to formalwear.

Wearing his staple circular frames, it’s a classic look all round from the star. Check out the Infinity 9830 frames below for the perfect style steal!

Benedict Cumberbatch & Sophie Hunter


Sophie Hunter and husband Benedict Cumberbatch are one of the most stylish couples about, and they didn’t miss a beat when they stepped out on the red carpet together ahead of the awards ceremony.

Wearing a sunny yellow high-neck dress, Sophie wore her hair up for an instantly classy look. She kept things simple by accessorising the look with a pair of circular tortoiseshell frames, proving that less is often more.

Grab the #totallook DW007 below to steal the star’s style!
