Most people watch the Oscars for the awards and to see what the actresses are wearing on the red carpet – I do too, I just happen to notice the eyewear too. We can always count on a few men to arrive in eyeglass style.
The notables this year were:
Robert Downey Jr.
The days of the super chunky acetate frames seem to be fading. While we are still seeing large lenses, the frame surrounding them is getting (thankfully) thinner. The Oliver Peoples XXV he is wearing encompasses all of that and then adding the matte black color just makes it perfect to dress up for the Oscars or down for a weekend with the family.
Samuel L. Jackson
Known to have great taste in eyewear, Mr. Jackson chose to wear a lovely round frame to compliment his burgundy velvet blazer. I say it daily and I’ll say it again, round is in. While we don’t have any of this exact style in the store we have multiple colors and variations of this to choose from. You just have to own it!
Wearing a classic black acetate frame to compliment his classic black tuxedo he couldn’t go wrong and neither can you. It’s a classic style that nicely compliments his salt and pepper hair and has been around for some time and isn’t going anywhere soon.
Robert De Niro
Looking very classy in his Lindberg rimless eyewear with Transitions lenses, we are happy this is the newest frame line in our store (more on that later)! Subtle yet stylish, these frames are super lightweight and not your usual rimless look. Tommy Lee Jones and Alan Arkin were also spotted wearing these lightweight lovelies by Lindberg.
And last and certainly the VERY least…
If your glasses look like this run, don’t walk into our store! While there’s nothing wrong with the style, no one deserves to wear glasses that are that poorly fitted and adjusted!
We can help you achieve any of these looks or design one that is all your own. We’ll see you soon!
