No amount of rain can dampen this girls style

Fearne Cotton wearing Ray-Ban 4141 sunglasses
Even though it was one of the wettest days in weeks, with continuous downpour throughout the day, but Fearne Cotton refused to let the rain dampen her style.

The Radio 1 presenter looked optimistic about the weather as she stepped out wearing 
Ray-Ban 4141 sunglasses.

Even when it is raining Fearne cannot put this ultra stylish frame down which looks great on her. The round frame works a treat as Fearne demonstrates yet again, on smaller face shapes. Ray-Ban 4141 is a simple design with Ray-Ban detailing on the arms. Branded discreetly on the top left of the lens, these shades lends themselves perfectly to those who set, not follow the trends.

After hosting her Radio 1 show in the morning, the fashion designer headed off to a photo shoot.

Meanwhile, the DJ has been announced as the host of the first ever Teen Awards which will take place next month. Guests and performers will include JLS and Professor Green.

Fearne said 'I’m extremely proud to be presenting the first ever Teen Awards with Grimmy (Nick Grimshaw). What a great event - awards, inspirational teenagers and a brilliant line-up.'

What are you wearing Taylor Momsen?

Taylor Momsen wearing Chanel 5177 sunglasses
What is she wearing now? Teen rebel Taylor Momsen wears a pair of fishnet tights, a lace mini dress and military boots while filming for ITV2 drama Gossip Girl.

The blonde hell raiser teamed her stocking clad legs with black Doc Martens, and a pair of Chanel 5177 sunglasses from the Chanel 2010 collection which represent the baroque style that was so loved by Chanel founder Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel.

But the outlandish outfit is nothing new for the aspiring singer, who recently flashed her breasts at her fans as she performed with her band The Pretty
Reckless.

She also courted controversy by posing holding a hand gun in revealing underwear on the cover of Revolver magazine earlier this month.

But despite her outspoken nature and unruly behaviour the celebrity clearly enjoys the understated elegance of Chanel, which could explain why she is so often spotted in Chanel sunglasses.

Victoria Beckham has enlisted husband David Beckham to help promote her new sunglasses range. The fashion designer uploaded a photograph of David wearing Victoria Beckham
Classic Aviators to her Twitter page last week.

As well as the classic Aviator, the Victoria Beckham sunglass collection gathers iconic styles including oversized metal frames. Luxe metal detailing and classic colours give the collection a great retro appeal, which will be available from Sunglasses Shop early next year.

One of her favourite subjects to photograph and post to Twitter is pet bulldog Coco, that appears in a separate photograph wearing a Halloween necklace and with its nails painted orange and green.

But this is the first time has photographed and published a member of the Beckham family to the site.

Professor Green steals the show at MOBO Awards

Professor Greene wearing Persol 0649 sunglasses
The stars braved the cold to celebrate the 2010 MOBO Awards in Liverpool last night. Some of the big names were Tinie Tempah, Tinchy Stryder, JLS and Alesha Dixon…

But our favourite look of the night was Professor Green who stole the show in Persol 0649.
We also have to give special mention to Dappy who accessorised with Ray-Ban Wayfarers.

His Persol sunglasses are in the style of those seen on Steve McQueen in ‘The Thomas Crown
Affair’ and ‘The Get Away’.

The original sunglasses seen on Steve McQueen in both films were sold to a private collector in 2006. Those iconic sunglasses - with trademark McQueen blue, tortoiseshell housing, and collapsible frame - were lost to a private collector for tens and thousands of pounds. If you cannot afford to spend seventy thousand pounds on sunglasses, fear not. Persol has
created a line of classic McQueen sunglasses ranging which start from £185.

Not only has Persol reproduced the sunglasses of one of the greatest American male fashion icons, but have made them even better. The frame is handcrafted from a single sheet of acetate which is then broken for three points for the hinges. It is then put through a finishing process that creates a smooth outline and comfortable body. A supreme silver arrow - the iconic signature of Persol – decorates the temple.

2010 is the first year when a major award did not need nor deserve to go to an American act, an incredible development for British Urban Music. Professor Greene was awarded Best UK Hip Hop/ Grime Act. The big winners of the night were Tinie Tempah and JLS, leaving with two MOBOs each.

Lauren Conrad talks big sunglasses

Lauren Conrad wearing Dior Glossy 1 sunglasses
Since leaving ‘The Hills’ Lauren Conrad has penned several bestselling books and is hard at work launching new label ‘Paper Crown’, which is all about the fun of dressing up.

The line is her latest contribution to the fashion scene and features a collection of eyewear ranging from the oversized to the ultra glamorous.

She tells Teen Vogue "They were like, 'Do you want to do sunglasses,' and I said, 'Only if I can do them big!' Then they were like, ‘Do you want to do shoes?' And I said, ‘Only if I can do them tall!'"

Lauren loves designing and wearing big sunglasses and does so with pride. More often than not 
Dior Glossy 1 is her weapon of choice. These sunglasses take everything good about fifties fashion and takes it to a cool more contemporary place. With a large frame subtly branded at the temple, these sunglasses have their own unique star quality. Choose this frame in black, brown or tortoiseshell for everyday wear. Or pink, petrol or violet for a more glamorous evening look.

Oakley shades Chilean miners

Chilean miner wearing Oakley sunglasses
Oakley donated 35 pairs of sunglasses to the Chilean miners rescued from beneath the Atacama Desert after 69 days underground.

The brand was approached by a journalist covering the rescue efforts who recommended 
Oakley to the private health insurer for eyewear protection for the miners once they surfaced.

Oakley Radar sunglasses feature a single lens that wraps around the eyes. This will give the miners protection from sunlight — not just straight ahead but at the sides of their eyes.

The Radar frames are fitted with the darkest lens available from Oakley. A Dark Grey base is combined with Black Iridium lens coating that balances light and reduces glare.

Two lens shapes (Path and Range) are included with the interchangeable lens design. Both shapes provide excellent coverage and the difference in shape will allow for variances in facial anatomy to give each miner the best possible sun blockage.

Their eyes will be dilated bringing the risk of added UV exposure to the eye. Oakley
Plutonite lenses filter out 100 percent of all UV rays for unbeatable protection.

A hydrophobic or oleophobic lens coating prevents water from leaving sheens that can obstruct vision. It also sheds mud and repels oils and dust - proof that these Oakley sunglasses are the real deal.

Cheryl Cole blames sunglasses

X Factor contestant Nicolo Fiesta 
Were sunglasses to blame for Nicolo Festa being eliminated from the X Factor on Sunday?

The student performed ‘Just Dance’ by Lady GaGa dressed in Ray-Ban Wayfarers in red which were later commented on by the judges.

Judge Cheryl Cole said after his performance ‘I didn’t love it Nicolo. I think the one thing above all that you need, is to redeem that connection and I didn’t like your eyes covered.

Phillip Schofield has also admitted he thought his sunglasses were to blame.

‘Well I think it was a mistake to put glasses on him. If anyone ever comes here as a guest and has sunglasses on, we try very politely to ask them to take them off, because you don’t get to see their eyes. There is a real barrier there.’ He said on This Morning.

Of course we think his sunglasses made instead of break his performance. For decades pop stars have incorporated Ray-Ban Wayfarers as part of their performance. It is the rock star equivalent of a shirt and tie and something no singer should be without. Even Lady GaGa has a pair.

Match your sunglasses to your hair colour


Sunglasses have always been at the forefront of cool, but they are currently having a serious fashion moment, leading designers to think outside the box and create some truly original, contemporary designs. Sunglasses Shop has a variety of designers, with a plethora of colours and shapes at the click of a button. Our team of experts are at hand to help you choose the perfect pair to suit your individual look and lifestyle, but to give you some initial inspiration; here
are a few colour- inspired tips to help you out when browsing our site.

You choose your hair colour to suit your complexion, so extend (and break) those rules when choosing your sunnies.

Hey Blondie: Rich and soft caramels, pastels and creams were rife on the catwalk this season, so go with these on trend tones to compliment your soft colouring. Black metal frames will turn heads when mixed with over sized, ‘look at me’ styles.
Try: Chloe Myrte Ivory or Ray-Ban 3026 Large Aviator Black 

Chloe Myrte Ivory

Dark and mysterious: Vibrant colours and embellishment such as crystals and gold detailing will add a contrast with stunning results when paired with dark tresses. Frames with tones of plum bring out blue and green eyes and Celtic skin tones, whilst olive skinned beauties can work metallics with panache.
Try: Marc Jacobs 298 Violet or Dior Sport 1 Rose Gold
Marc Jacobs 298 Violet Shiny Honey


Rustic beauty: Whether you’re a natural red head, or have gone for vibrant tones of pillar box red, it’s a colour that’s having all the fun this season, with the Mulberry S/S11 show being awash with marching red heads, proving that those who dare, win. Go for white, creams and blacks in cat eye shapes for a retro, screen siren look, or clash with hot pinks and cool blues in over sized 70s frames for a directional finish.
Try: D&G 3061 Honey or Chanel 5196 Light Turquoise

X Factor sunglasses

X Factor contestants Katie Waissell and Storm wearing Clubmaster sunglasses
X Factor contestants Katie Waissel and Storm already look like ready made stars as they stroll through London.

The hopefuls were looking good after making it through to the final stages of the popular TV series. The sun was not exactly sizzling but they both felt the need for sunglasses.

Katie wore a leather jacket with skinny jeans and sporting Clubmaster sunglasses, while Strom grabbed attention by colouring his hair red. No wonder he wore shades too.

Storm was also wearing Clubmaster sunglasses inspired by the popular Ray-Ban version loved and adored by celebrities.

Ray-Ban Clubmaster has a round frame that has become a favourite of Mischa Barton, Robert Pattinson and Paloma Faith. The right lens features a Ray-Ban logo decoration which is cut from quality glass for clear vision. There is also metal detailing on the temples which are expertly crafted by hand. This is vintage Ray-Ban at its ultimate best.

Kate Moss sports sunglasses in the rain

Kate Moss wearing Ray-Ban 2140 Wayfarer sunglasses

As one of the highest paid supermodels in the world it was easy to see why Kate Moss has been so successful when she wore sunglasses in the pouring rain over the weekend.

She refused to let the rain dampen her style as she enjoyed lunch with boyfriend Jamie Hince in France, where she is shooting for a Dior advertisement.

Despite a distinct lack of sunshine the model sported Ray-Ban 2140 Wayfarers as she attended lunch at Caf de Flore.

Kate is the only celebrity who could get away with wearing sunglasses in the rain. Not to mention leather trousers and a matching leather trim jacket.

If there is one look Kate always nails its Ray-Ban 2140 Wayfarer sunglasses combined with skinny jeans and a blazer combo.

While we love Kate and her effortless fashion sense, wearing sunglasses in the rain is a bit much. But perhaps she had a late night.

No sunglasses if you shop in Edmonton

Edmonton police in the United States have asked people not to wear sunglasses into banks or stores to dissuade robbers.

The programme is based on similar schemes in other parts of the US and United Kingdom, said Staff Sergeant Howard Kunce.

"Ninety-five per cent of the robberies we deal with involve criminals wearing a hood and a ball cap," he said.

Having people remove their sunglasses when entering a store would make it easier to identify criminals, and hopefully deter robbers.

The Wisconsin Bankers Association reportedly had a 47% decrease in bank robberies after adopting a similar program in 2002.

The association placed posters outside all of its branches by the entrance with the words "No hats, no hoods, no sunglasses,".

While police are not asking businesses to confront customers who do not comply, they hope those that refuse to remove their sunglasses will find themselves under greater scrutiny.
