Stylish summer sunglasses

They are the key to creating the perfect capsule wardrobe and one accessory you cannot live without – when the sun is shining, at least.

But which sunglasses should you wear this summer?

This year has yet to throw up any key trends so for this season anything goes – from the round and retro to the weird and wonderful.

So which labels should we be coveting?

Ray-Ban sunglasses are cool and classic, while Tom Ford is popular throughout Europe.

In all the sophisticated destinations throughout Europe, everyone is wearing Tom Ford. Not only are they beautifully understated but last more than one season.

Katie Price single flops

Katie Price wearing D&G 3041 sunglassesThings are not going well for Katie Price.

Since her debut solo single flopped after failing to make the UK Top 40, Katie has been keeping a low profile.

The reality TV star tried dressed all in black as she left the Nobu restaurant in London. Looking uncharacteristically chic, her hair was tied back in a bun and she finished the look with a pair of designer sunglasses.

Sunglasses are a quick and easy way to maintain anonymity, hence their growing popularity among celebrities. But unfortunately for Katie, not even sunglasses can hide her identity.

Yes the only way to go incognito is with a big pair of sunglasses. For glamorous sunglasses that vie for you attention, yet are deliciously anonymous choose the 3041 by D&G – as seen on Katie.

D&G is the sister line of Dolce&Gabbana, which Sunglasses Shop also stocks, but is its own individual designer brand. D&G produce designer fashion products which appeal to a younger target audience including eyewear with a cutting edge design that does not follow current trends. It sets them.

Domencio Dolce and Stefano Gabbana must have been feeling bold when they brain stormed for this daring design, which is for those more courageous characters who want to wear a pair of head turning frames. This bold but simplistic style is handcrafted from generous acetate which features subtle branding on the arms with the use of the D&G logo to represent complete authenticity. The middle of the brow dips inwards and is based on the shape of the wayfarer. The arms get gradually thinner towards the tips and feature the D&G emblem. Stripes
accentuate the frame front and create a sporty feel and allow the shape of the frame to be emphasised. Large brown coloured lenses really stand out against the rich frame colour and complete the look. This cute pair of frames adopts a style and pattern that no other brand has dared experiment with before, making them truly original and utterly unique.

Within the 3041 there is a combination of cool colours and shades to choose from including Cream on Brown, Violet on Black and White on Black, which is striking, stylish, sophisticated and smart. Whichever colour appeals to you, be rest assured you will be investing in a seriously stylish pair of sunglasses that will provide full protection for your eyes and exceptional style.

Kelly Osbourne and Luke Worrell split

Kelly Osbourne wearing Tom Ford Nikita sunglassesKelly Osbourne put on a brave face as she made her first public appearance since splitting from boyfriend Luke Worrell. But has revealed it’s been hard.

The 25-year-old tweeted, 'I am not dealing with this very well :( keeping your head up is not fun! going to bed thank god for tomorrow!'
The reality TV star split from the model after it emerged he had been cheating on her.

Kelly appeared in good spirits as she acknowledged photographers outside her local gym.

But her oppressive mood was clear as she quietly made her way to the front of the building hiding behind a pair of Tom Ford Nikita sunglasses.

If eyes are the window to your soul Nikita blocks the entrance. A pair of large sunglasses such as these is a convenient way of covering up a multitude of sins.

They feature an oversized lens shape and feline flicks at the top corner. The effect is a lift across the eye line that creates a look of seductiveness that no other sunglass can match. The handmade acetate frame is beautifully shaped with a flat surface and well positioned temples. Even more appealing is the Tom Ford signature logo etched onto the right lens that also appears on the inside frame and temples tips for an authentic designer look.

The Nikita is in the style of the cat eye sunglasses favoured by Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Onassis in the nineteen fifties. In those days female fashion was extremely feminine and consisted of The New look of Christian Dior and fashion accessories such as elegant silk scarves, gloves and feminine frames.

Bring out your feminine side in these idyllic Nikita frames that can be purchased from the Sunglasses Shop website in a choice of ivory and tortoise.

Lindsay Lohan sentanced to jail

Lindsay Lohan wearing Ray-Ban 3016 Clubmaster sunglassesLindsay Lohan has been sentenced to 90 days in prison after breaching the terms of her probation.
The actress broke down in tears as the Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel handed down the term and blasted her for not taking her probation seriously.

The Mean Girls star must also serve 90 days as an in-patient on a substance abuse programme once she is released from jail.
In an attempt to avoid jail after it was ruled she violated her probation by repeatedly missing court-ordered alcohol education classes, Lindsay said that
she did not realise she had not been keeping up with the order and insisted a busy work schedule kept her from attending.

She maintained, 'I was taking it seriously. I wasn't expecting any special treatment.'

'I'm not taking this as a joke. It's my life and my career, something I have worked for my entire life.'

'I have tried to do the best I can. It's just been such a long haul. I don't want you to think I don't respect you and your terms.

'I really did think I was doing what I was supposed to do, and I mean it with all my heart.'

But the judge was insistent, 'I couldn't have been more clear [about my orders]. There are no excuses.'

Lindsay had failed to attend once-weekly classes at an alcohol-education programme at least nine times since October 16.

Inspired by the fifties, but originally released in the eighties, the Clubmaster is a classic, retro frame and deserves respect. The Clubmaster is one of the most popular icons from the Ray-Ban collection and now represents an entire family of models.
The Clubmaster became an icon of style and design in 1986, and signalled the birth of a timeless legend. The Clubmaster has gradually earned its place as an essential fashion accessory for men and women, the style that has become internationally famous thanks to the hot, young stars of Hollywood.
This highly influential frame has been seen perched on top of Robert Pattinson, Katy Perry and Lady GaGa. They may be too young to remember its heyday. But Kristen Stewart, Hayden Panettiere and Mischa Barton are also keen on this cool design. These cool shades have also been well-received by those that grew up with its clean lines, as well as those that are discovering the
frame for the first time.

Cheryl Cole struck down with malaria

Cheryl Cole in the Ray-Ban 3025 Aviator Cheryl Cole has been admitted to hospital following a romantic holiday to Africa.

The singer collapsed during a photo shoot on Saturday and was initially diagnosed with exhaustion.

But friends of the X Factor judge say her condition dramatically deteriorated the next day.

Doctors took urgent tests and admitted her to hospital where it was confirmed she was suffering from the highly infectious malaria.

The 27-year-old is thought to have caught the deadly disease while holidaying in Tanzania with her dancing partner Derek Hough.

A source told The Sun, "She told doctors she'd had stomach pains since her return from Tanzania. On Sunday evening her condition deteriorated so rapidly she knew it was something serious."

"She'd spent 48 hours in bed trying to sleep off what she thought was a stomach bug. She was extremely weak, sweating and drifting in and out of consciousness. She was driven to hospital where tests showed malaria. Everyone is really concerned. She is very ill."

It is thought that Cheryl will remain in hospital and under close observation for the next couple of weeks before being able to rejoin the rest of the X Factor team.

Cheryl Cole has gone from WAG to fab through a stint on reality TV. The 27-year-old has made herself one of the central characters on The X Factor, as a replacement for Sharon Osbourne, and has become one of the most watched fashionistas around.

Diana Vickers 'too nervous' to meet Paolo Nutini

Diana Vickers in the Diesel 0204Diana Vickers recently revealed how nervous she is about her second single doing as well as the first, which went straight to number 1 in the UK charts.

The 18-yaer-old told Digital Spy, "You can't do any better than number one, can you?! It's not all about that anyway - it's about being successful and maintaining a good stamina, and of course I'm very, very nervous, but its good nerves, you know? I'm very confident in the song and I'm going to do the best I can with it and see what happens."

"I'm so proud of this album and there are so many I want to release as singles. I keep thinking, 'How am I going to release that and that and that?' Hopefully
I'll get to release at least four or five, but I don't know yet."

The singer also suffers from social anxiety and missed out on a chance meeting with Paolo Nutini at an event recently.

The ‘Once’ singer saw the singer-song writer at the Scottish Fashion Awards in Glasgow last month, but was too intimidated to introduce herself.

She told the Daily Record "I didn't get a chance to say hello but I did have the chance to be near to him,"

"Somebody said I should go over and meet him. They wanted to introduce me but I got really nervous.

"I wanted the circumstances to be natural as I find it all a bit cringey when it's forced and I didn't really want to do that," she explained. "I never really got that opportunity in the end."

Vanessa Hudgens 'still hurt' by naked pictures

Vanessa Hudgens in the Ray-Ban 3025 AviatorHigh School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens has revealed she is ‘still hurt’ by nude photographs of herself that were leaked online 3 years ago.

The topless photographs circulated the internet back in 2007 when the actress was just 18-years-old.

The 23-year-old told US Glamour magazine, ’I think it has made me stronger, but it still hurts.’

‘It sucks because [the photos were] supposed to be private, but at the same time a lot of actresses do it [in movies].’

She added, ‘Eventually, I’m sure that I will [too]. But I don’t know if I would be able to do it now.’

The ‘Sneakernight’ singer also opened up about her relationship with High School Musical co-star Zac Efron, 22.

‘We got lucky because we started off together, so I think people like us because they fell in love with our characters.'
‘Right off the bat, we had a connection. I think everybody could see it. When we had our audition, they paired us together. And he was adorable.’

Vanessa works the hot floral trend with a pair of Ray-Ban 3025 Aviators in gold, proof that even someone as pageantry as Vanessa is can pull off the Godspeed of Ray Ban sunglasses.
America was the first to go crazy for the Ray Ban aviator. First the US army pilots, then the traffic cops and finally, Tom Cruise in Top Gun. Now is the turn of Leona Lewis, who has been soaking up the L.A. sunshine with the help of Ray Ban's ultraviolet technology. After all, what's international stardom without a pair of beaming pair of Ray Bans?
Although this year has been primarily dominated by the wayfarer there's still more than enough room for the aviator within the industry, commonly appearing alongside its Ray Ban cousins in fashion editorials, celebrity photos and retail outlets from around the world.
