Madonna is odd one out as she directs new movie

Madonna wearing MDG 2088 sunglasses.
Madonna sported odd socks as directed new movie W.E., a romantic drama focusing on the affair between King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson.

While the actors had an excuse for their odd fashion sense, their director did not.

The singer rode around on a bicycle wearing a quirky outfit, which consisted of a fedora hat, leather jacket, neck scarf and sweat pants with one knee-high golf sock pulled over the knee.

She also wore a pair of sunglasses from the eagerly anticipated Madonna Dolce&Gabbana collection (MDG).

The collection is the first co-branded collaboration that Dolce&Gabbana has ever undertaken and features six different styles in a choice of colours.

Her sunglasses show case an oversized frame with bold contours made from sleek metal. The brow line dips for feminine appeal and the frame gently wraps around her face. The temples have metal accents and which are decorated with the recognisable MDG logo. The M is punctuated with little stars and is the vocal point of the frame. A plaque also aligns the arm interior for maximum authenticity and silicon nose pads ensure supreme comfort when you need it the most.

What more could any woman want from a pair of sunglasses?
W.E. is scheduled for release in 2011.

Red carpet face off: Ke$ha Vs Juliette Lewis

Ke$sha and Juliette Lewis wearing Ray-Ban Road Spirit Outdoorsman sunglasses
Ke$ha and Juliette Lewis have given a certain mirrored aviator quite the red carpet workout this summer.

We noticed that the Ray-Ban Road Spirit Outdoorsman first appeared on Juliette Lewis at the Ray-Ban Aviator: The Essentials re-launch back in May.

The actress and singer donned a pair of the cool shades on the red carpet as well as a pair of stonewash denim jeans, which she layered with a red top, a blue denim and a leather jacket.

A couple of months later, Ke$ha wore the same sunglasses to the Moorea Beach Club at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, where she was hosting hosted an exclusive invite-only pool party.

Their sunglasses were originally designed for U.S. military pilots in 1937. Now their ridiculously cool shades form part of the Ray-Ban Outdoorsman collection and are the hottest accessory to own this season.

Ke$ha opted for a feathered hair accessory, while Juliette toughened up her look with a leather jacket.

But while Juliette looked absolutely rocking, Ke$ha added a bit more dazzle with a black frame and mirrored lenses.

The coolest edition to the Ray-Ban Aviator family yet, the Road Spirit Outdoorsman Aviator features colourful rims, a bold top bar and laminated temple tips.

Pay home to your favourite guitar heroes with the Ray-Ban Road Spirit Outdoorsman Aviator.

Heidi Montag wears sunglasses for the first time post-surgery

Heidi Montag wearing Chanel Pearl sunglasses
Reality TV star Heidi Montag is holidaying in Costa Rica, where she made a breakthrough on Wednesday.

She tweeted, "wearing sunglasses for the first time since my surgery! SCARY! feels so weird!"

The 23-year-old had ten plastic surgery procedures done in November last year. She recently revealed that she wants her G-cup implants removed, as it is “heartbreaking” that she can no longer exercise of play with her four dogs.

Shortly before going under the knife, we spotted Heidi in a pair of sunglasses from the esteemed Chanel Pearl collection.

While we don't envy what she's been through, we do envy her endless collection of quilted Chanel handbags, shoes and flats - no wonder Audrina Patridge and Lauren Conrad were so jealous.

Her sunglasses feature a plethora of genuine pearls on the temple, which have been cultivated for a primarily flawless, perfectly spherical finish. The broad lenses add instant wow-factor while the dozen pearls add a youthful glow to her skin.

Follow in the footsteps of sexy Hollywood sirens and allow your inner star to shine with the Chanel Pearl collection.

Katie Price Vs Katy Perry in fashion stakes

Katie Price and Katy Perry wearing Prada Postcard sunglasses
It is decision time. Katie Price and Katy Perry both donned the same Prada sunglasses. But, who gets your vote in the fashion stakes?

Katie surprised us on a recent trip to London in the sophisticated Prada shades, which are taken from the Prada Postcard collection.

The reality star teamed her sunglasses with blue denim jeans, a black top, a casual up do and no makeup.

But we knew we had seen these sunglasses before…

Not only did Katy wear them for her performance at the launch of the Volkswagen 2011 Jetta in Times Square. But also outside of a luxury five star during a leg of her California Gurls tour in Paris.

The singer paired her sunglasses with a black and white printed shift dress, a diamante cuff, and shoulder length curls with glossed pink lips.

But who wore it best?

Tom Ford back to his old tricks

Tom Ford 2010AW campaign


As the man behind the now-infamous Opium campaign featuring Sophie Dahl reclining naked across a cushion, Tom Ford has never shied away from controversy.
Followers of his overtly sexy campaigns will not be disappointed by imagery for the upcoming Tom Ford AW2010 sunglasses collection.
The campaign shot by the designer turned fashion designer himself, sees Nicholas Hoult puckering up to a crow and Freja Beha Erichsen breastfeeding one.
For his latest collection Tom Ford drew inspiration from The Birds by Alfred Hitchcock, one of our favourite masters of the thriller movie genre.
The Birds (1963) is a very eclectic reference for the forthcoming collection of sunglasses, which will be available from September.

Swinging Prada

In jazz speak ‘Swing’ means the smooth turn from one chord to another – hence the smooth and flowing lines of the up and coming Prada Swing sunglasses collection.

The collection is closely designed to match the Prada Autumn/Winter 2010 campaign starring supermodel Angela Lindvall in a suitably swish music lounge set to the rhythm of Fever, the iconic jazz number performed by Katey J.
Prada Swing sunglasses
Around her, an intimate and provocative series of dances are taking are place against a dark background, which cinematically highlights the prints and silhouettes of the Prada clothing collection.

The Swing sunglasses range is the perfect compliment to the fabulous fifties frocks also showcased in the campaign.

These gorgeous sunglasses will be available from the middle of October in sophisticated ivory, black and tortoiseshell with gradient lenses – see stills of the sunglasses taken from the from the ad campaign below, shot by Steven Meisel.

Prada introduces Postcard sunglasses

Katy Perry wearing Prada Postcard sunglasses
The new Prada Postcard sunglasses collection features the same frame in six different colours, each inspired by sophisticated city destinations and the traditional seaside holiday.

To celebrate the launch of its Postcard collection of sunglasses, the brand teamed up with famous photographer Steven Meisel and supermodel Raza Zukauskaite to create its first short audio tale.

The film is accompanied by an equally stunning campaign featuring the model with her hair tied in bunches and plumped red lips, very Lolita (below).
Prada 19MS Postcard Collection Milan Green Fluro
Prada 19MS is lovingly handmade into an upswept shape which creates the illusion of model cheekbones and perfect brows. A Prada logo stands proud on the temple of these futuristic Prada sunglasses, which pay tribute to Milan, Manhattan, Paris, London and Lisbon in crystal frame colours.

The Prada Postcard collection has already captured the hearts of Katie Price, Eva Mendes and Katy Perry, who wore the 19MS during yet another sweet performance at the launch of the Volkswagen 2011 Jetta in Times Square, New York (above).

Summer holidays will soon feel like a distant memory as the cold draws in. But even after summer is over, Miuccia Prada has ensured that the magic of a beachside holiday shines on.

Break the mould and do things differently in the 19MS.

Who wore it best? Kelly Osbourne Vs Paris Hilton

Kelly Osbourne and Paris Hilton wearing Tom Ford Nikita sunglasses
Reality TV stars Paris Hilton and Kelly Osbourne certainly know how to dress and despite having different tastes in clothes, they do have at least one thing in common – Tom Ford Nikita.
Both have been photographed wearing Nikita sunglasses these past few weeks.
Kelly donned a black version shortly after splitting with fiancé Luke Worrell.
Paris sported a tortoiseshell pair while holidaying with her sister Nicky in St Tropez, France.
The Nikita is in the style of the cat eye sunglasses favoured by Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Onassis in the nineteen fifties. These vintage inspired sunglasses features feline flicks at the top corners which accentuate and slim the face.
These beautiful frames will leave feeling like the glamorous Hollywood screen sirens of the fifties, sixties and seventies. Treat yourself to gorgeousness and glamour this season in the form of the Nikita, which will soon make its way onto the red carpet.

Paris Hilton spots a dog in sunglasses

Paris Hilton wearing Dior Evening 1 sunglasses
Paris Hilton put her search for a new BFF on hold on last week, as she cuddled up to a fluffy white canine.

The heiress was shopping for birthday presents with new boyfriend Cy Waits at the Grove on Friday, when she came across the four-legged friend.

The animal-love was photographed next to the pooch – who was wearing sunglasses - and later posted on social networking Twitter:

‘This dog is awesome! Love the shades,’

Paris looked equally adorable in a floral print dress, a black straw hat and Dior Evening 1 sunglasses.

The Evening 1 has an oversized frame shape and is a reimagining of 1970s chic with subtle glamour. This latest frame creates a bespoke look with a rich blend of dark coloured acetate and gradient lenses. It also creates a look of glamour from the temple, which is studded in Swarovski. The front of the frame features gradient lenses and is large in shape – because in Hollywood, size matters.

One of the most elegant and distinctive Dior sunglasses, take your look to the absolute limits of chic the Dior Evening 1.

Sunglasses more than just a fashion accessory

Tom Cruise, Justin Timberlake and Zac Efron wearing Persol sunglasses
Thanks to a growing interest in celebrity culture, sunglasses have become an all year round-obsession.

Celebrities and civilians alike love the look of a designer frame, which can transform the average Joe into a famous rock star.

Not only do sunglasses make us appear more interesting, but the protection they provide is crucial.

Cases of temporary blindness, blurred vision and cataracts caused by UV are on the increase, hence why it is so important to protect your eyes from the sun.

These sunglasses (as seen on Zac Efron) by designer brand Persol - meaning 'for the sun' in Italian - provide superior protection against those harsh UV rays.

Being synonymous with outstanding protection is nothing new for Italian design. But when it comes to producing quality products, Persol verges on the obsessive. Their models use lenses made from mineral glass to offer maximum protection, absorbing radiation that can be harmful to eyes.

You can always count on the Italians to never sacrifice practicality for style and these frames are begging for a joyride in an open sports car overlooking the ocean.

So the next time a BBQ or outdoor picnic is on the menu, make Persol the speciality of the day.
From left to right: Persol 2803, 2966 and 0649 (as shown below).

Look! Marina Diamandis in TV sunglasses

Marina Diamandis wearing TV sunglasses
Marina Diamandis of Marina and the Diamonds has become renowned for her quirky and experimental style.

She is restless in terms of fashion and goes between cartoon couture and gothic glam with a bit of avant garde thrown in.

From her Big Bird outfit she wore at London Fashion Week to her Jean Charles de Castelbajac cartoon ensemble she donned at Radio One Big Weekend, the 23-year-old has an amazing sense of style.

Today we are lusting after her TV sunglasses, which she sported outside the Radio 1 Studio in London last week.

She teamed her unusual sunglasses, complete with antennas, with a Status Sumbol tee, black maxi skirt and a bright pink bag as she arrived for a radio interview.
Although she does bare some resemblance to Johnny Depp in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, we love the way how the TV antennas come out of the frame.

Create your own retro inspired look with the Andy from Carrera, a cool plastic aviator in a vintage shape (antennas not included).

Cheryl Cole and Derek Hough: His and her shades

Cheryl Cole and Derek Hough wearing John Galliano sunglasses
Cheryl Cole made sure to look her best for Derek Hough during a shopping trip at The Grove in Los yesterday, and looked a picture of health after spending 11 days in hospital being treated for malaria.

The happy couple is in sunny Los Angeles before heading to the beach-side resort of Malibu where they will spend the next 3 weeks.

Cheryl and Derek landed at LAX wearing matching his and her sunglasses taken from the John Galliano collection.

It is not the first time Cheryl has been seen sporting shades by the great British fashion designer.

The X Factor judge has also been seen in the beautiful Les Biches on a previous trip to L.A, a large wrap around with highly decorative temples.

John Galliano sunglasses can be found on everyone from Jude Law and Katy Perry, and the list continues to grow by the day.

For this reason John Galliano is fast becoming a best selling brand throughout the UK and one of the most popular to own this year.

Raise the style stakes this summer with your very own pair of John Galliano aviators and put the rest in the shade.

Trend watch: Ray-Ban 4141

Pixie Lott, Fearne Cotton and Pixie Geldof wearing Ray-Ban 4141 sunglasses
Round sunglasses are the one to watch this season, and have amassed a celebrity following which now includes Mishca Barton, Pixie Geldof, Pixie Lott and Fearne Cotton. The list is growing by the day and throughout the UK we are seeing more and more people wearing them as a cool alternative to the Wayfarer and Clubmaster that dominated the look of 2009.

The Ray-Ban 4141 gives more than a mere nod to the cat-eye trend and is one of our favourite frames this season. The size of the frame also gives nod to the classic, retro glamour which young London starlets seem to adore.

Ray-Ban really can do no wrong! Their sunglasses are carved and carried by the world of fashion, celebrity and sport, and really throw down the gauntlet in terms of style. Although we love the iconic styling of the Wayfarer and Aviator styles, it is nice to supplement change with a shade like the 4141.

With a great range of colours for every occasion and every outfit, maybe the 4141 will be the next sunglass to keep coming back season after season.
