Celebs who don’t live without their glasses
Celebrities love their eyewear. And Katie Holmes demonstrated that while returning home from a pre-Oscars party in LA. It was evening and she was spotted at the airport in dark-toned sunglasses ! Now that’s what I call true love for your eyewear – so much that you can’t stay a moment away from them.
Katie might be following the latest fad of donning sunnies even in the night, but there are celebs in our B-town too who have showed their penchant for eyeglasses and sunglasses. Be it events, film promotions, premiere shows or simply public appearances, these stars of the 70mm are always seen in their favourite eyewear.
Let’s have a look at the celebs who have made eyewear an integral part of their persona.
Big B is truly the Shahenshah when it comes to eyewear. Whether he’s at Cannes or attending The Great Gatsby premiere in NY, Amitabh Bachchan is always seen in his trademark dark-hued round eyeglasses that suit him to a T. Even the Wayfarers that he wore for KBC 7 made a lot of fashion noise.
The undisputed king of Bollywood has an impeccable sense of eyewear fashion, just like his immaculate dressing style. Sleek and suave, Shahrukh’s rimless rectangular Tag Heuer eyeglasses are the perfect accessory for him. But when he’s in the mood for fun, SRK is a true blue Aviator man.
Kajol has been wearing eyeglasses right from the beginning, and her most favourite one seems to be the sleek bold red rectangular pair that she sports quite frequently. Although her give-a-damn style statement might go awry at times, but the eyeglasses lend her exuberance an intellectual aura.
She might be the sultry beauty in Ram-Leela, but when it comes to real life Deepika is quite the geeky girl à la her avatar Naina in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Thick rimmed nerdy rectangular, Wayfarer or cat eye frames are her style statement. Like SRK, Dippy too is an Aviator fan when it comes to sunglasses.
Katrina prefers to keep it simple and comfy while choosing her sunglasses. But don’t think they lag behind in the style department. The diva makes sure that she looks her stunning best whether she’s in those oversized round brown shades or the classic Aviator she was spotted in recently.
She might not feature in your list of Bollywood fashionistas, but Kiran’s geeky eyeglasses style surely makes her stand apart from the crowd. They give a cerebral look to her personality. From her famous owl frames to cat eyes to half-rims – Mrs. Khan carries her eyewear with confidence and panache.
Audrey Hepburn popularised them in Hollywood, and Kangana Ranaut accomplished that task in the B-town. She’s always seen in a pair of stylish black cat eye spectacles that has become her signature fashion statement. When it comes to sunglasses, Kangana prefers to tread the chic route with big round shades.
Fashionista – that’s the first word which comes to your mind when I say Sonam Kapoor. Sonam has a self-confessed love for eyeglasses since her childhood. And that becomes evident in the glam makeover she gives to the retro cat-eye or round eyeglasses suiting them to her style tastes.
Geeky is definitely the new cool, and our Dabangg girl Sonakshi is the latest addict. Thick rimmed black Wayfarer-patterned spectacles are what she has chosen these days to display her geeky-chic style statement. But Junior Shotgun also knows how to play it cool with a pair of classic Aviators.
Often called the thinking man’s sex symbol, Chitrangada Singh manages to exude oomph even in the geeky black Wayfarer eyeglasses she’s fond of these days. And boy, she looks awesomely hot even in her bespectacled look. The charm, I guess, lies in those glittering eyes that speak a thousand words.
