Movie stars and glasses are a match made in heaven. Some of the most iconic women of the silver screen created their signature look with eyewear that made them look glamorous. From the oversized trend to the popular cat-eye frames, these fashion icons of the era gone-by made eyewear the most fashionable accessory of today.
We’ve matched the eyewear styles of 3 iconic celebs with our own vintage-inspired frames that are updated for today’s trends.
Marilyn Monroe And The Cat-Eye Trend-
It’s no secret that Marilyn Monroe holds the title for one of the most iconic women in the world for fashion and style. Her particular sense of style can be seen in classic white flowing halter neck dresses, curled blonde bobs, and of course, the cat-eye glasses. Marilyn Monroe’s glasses were first featured in How to Marry a Millionaire, and since then the cat-eye style became a statement of femininity and confidence for women.
Audrey Hepburn And The Oversized Trend-
Her character in Breakfast at Tiffany’s introduced the little black dress and the oversized sunnies trend to the world in a way that ensured their continuing popularity decades later. Her sense of style was all about donning minimalistic outfits and pairing them with an extra dose of charisma, channelled through her quirky, oversized sunglasses.
Grace Kelly And The Tortoiseshell Trend-
The rare beauty and stunning poise that propelled Grace Kelly into the Hollywood pantheon, onto the Best-Dressed List, and ultimately to Monaco’s royal palace were more than captivating—they were breathtaking. She popularised the tortoiseshell glasses with her effortless style and made them a fashion statement.
If you’re a retro at heart, then we’re sure you’ll love the vintage-inspired collection from John Jacobs. With minimal embellishments, these frames will help you recreate that 60s elegance, but with a modern twist.
