Kanye West’s Sunglasses Style…

October 12, 2010 § Leave a comment

Super cool music mogul Kanye West has been flexing his fashion muscles bit by bit over the last couple of years and has become a regular fixture at the seasonal fashion weeks. Kanye knows how to exercise his fashion credentials to perfection in these bad boy sunglasses from Gucci.  You’ve got to look stylish when you’re an all-rounder like Kanye.  Not content with dominating the music world and forays into designing for the likes of Louis Vuitton, Kanye has directed and starred in a short film to accompany his new album.  This man doesn’t stop

Still, at least he’s got the Gucci sunglasses of the moment to keep him on the ball when it comes to looking good.  The Gucci GG 1627 sunglasses are sexy frames for any man this season.  The acetate frame with the classic Gucci racing stripes add a great twist to the traditional aviator.  It is hard not to be charmed by Kanye West’s mix of dapper style and urban street cred.  It’s a combination that not many people can pull off with such aplomb so hats off to him.

Kylie Minogue’s Sunglasses Style…

October 12, 2010 § 1 Comment

We all know about Kylie Minogue The Fashionista.  Loved by Dolce & Gabbana, Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier to name a few, you wouldn’t expect to be able to afford any of Kylie Minogue’s designer accessories.  Well, don’t be too quick to assume.  Here Kylie Minogue is sporting the very affordable Carrera Panamerika sunglasses, all be it with Christian Louboutin boots and an Yves Saint Laurent handbag!

The sunglasses are definitely hot to trot and look great on the pint-sized Princess of Pop.  Borrowing their shape from the now infamous Carrera Champions (a favorite of Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera) the Carrera Panamerika makes a statement with its glossy finish makes sure that you’re still getting a touch of luxury.  A touch of Kylie Minogue style luxury that is available for under £80 at WantSunglasses!

Nicolo Festa’s X Factor Sunglasses Style…

October 11, 2010 § Leave a comment



While us busy bees at the WantSunglasses offices reserve judgement on Nicolo Festa’s X Factor 2010 one and only performance over the weekend, we can unequivocally say that we love Nicolo’s choice of Red Ray-Ban Wayfarers that he was sporting during his rendition of Lady Gaga’s ‘Just Dance’.

Italian born Nicolo Festa was the first X Factor contestant to be ejected from the live finals after polling the lowest number of  public votes.  FYD were also harshly booted off the opening live show as the judges chose to save the wacky Katie Waissel thanks to her rendition of the classic tune ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ by The Beatles.  Just as Nicolo’s sartorial choices were a hot topic in the WantSunglasses offices this morning, Katie’s choice of outfit on Sunday’s show found much more favour than her futuristic, Gaga-esque look we saw on Saturday’s show.  What a difference a night can make.

Who’s your favourite contestant?  A quick straw poll in the office suggests that Aiden Grimshaw, Matt Cardle and Treyc Cohen are our ones to watch.

Take a style tip from The Queen…

October 1, 2010 § Leave a comment

Coming across this little ditty has brightened up our grey, rainy Friday so we thought we’d share it with you!  You may have already seen this, but if not…enjoy.

None other than Her Majesty The Queen has recently caught the bug for 3D viewing.  However, don’t expect her to be sporting the large, plastic frames we make to with at the local cinema.  No, these are suped up in a manner befitting a royal.   Rumour has it that the Queen called in her personal assistant to adorn the arms of her 3D sunglasses with the letter Q in Sworovski crystals.  The definition of bling or what!

Ashley Greene & Joe Jonas Hook Up…

September 30, 2010 § Leave a comment

It’s official! After months of  ‘are they, aren’t they’, the news is that Ashley Greene and Joe Jonas are officially a couple!  Walking hand in hand through California, the two didn’t hide their affection.  After claiming to be ‘just friends’ for the past several months, these two weren’t fooling anyone, it was only a matter of time before they went public.  We’re betting that Joe Jonas will be a regular visitor to the set of Ashley’s new Twilight movie Breaking Dawn next month when filming kicks into gear.

While we’re as excited as anyone that their romance is finally out in the open, can we just say that the two of them look the absolute business in their starry style sunglasses.

Playing the part of Hollywood’s new hottest couple to perfection, Ashley sports her much loved Prada PR04MS sunglasses while Joe opts for the Ray-Ban RB 3025 Aviator sunglasses. The perfect his and hers combo we think you’ll agree!

Natalie Portman’s Sunglasses Style…

September 30, 2010 § Leave a comment

Natalie Portman has been busy beavering away and honing her craft over the last couple of years and Black Swans and Thor are among the fruits of her labour.  While busy filming and promoting, Natalie has been seen rocking these Alexander McQueen stunners frequently and we can definitely see why.

The late, great Alexander McQueen could definitely produce magic in his designs and the AMQ 4156 sunglasses are no exception.  Alexander McQueen has really taken ownership of the aviator style with these sunglasses thanks to the gem of a detail at the temple.  The skull has become somewhat of a feature throughout McQueen collections, the most famous of his designs to feature the skull was the scarves he designed a few years back which kickstarted a rock chic trend.

There will be no doubting your designer credentials if you were to rock these sunglasses any time of the year.
