Celebrities are looked up to when it comes to fashion trends as they are the people who can afford to buy the most outlandish outfits and shoes on the market. The same goes for designer eyewear! It seems that looking weird is the latest fad among Hollywood’s top stars. Obviously some of them only do it for the shock factor whereas others really enjoy being different. Some celebrities have really gone all out this year when it comes to weird and wonderful sunglasses. It’s truly amazing how many stylists and fashion consultants these stars have in their employ, but somehow they still manage to fall right out of the bus sometimes when it comes to their eyewear.
- The queen of strange
Number one with a bullet has to be Lady Gaga. Her most famous sunglasses are the Mickey Mouse ear-shaped ones that she dons in more than one of her music videos. However, instead of resembling the lovable mouse, she looks more like Maya the Bee on crack when she wears them; especially with that yellow hair. The singer tried to pull off red kaleidoscope sunglasses at one point but soon gave up on that idea, when she realised ordinary objects will not turn 3D.
- Disturbia taken to a whole new level
Rihanna is one of the hottest and most popular singers of 2012. She is also one of the weirdest people on the planet. As the years passed, she morphed into a strange mix of sex-kitten/singer/wanna-be actress. She too has a range of sunglasses to go with all her outfits and sometimes her moods. A few months ago she attended a glitzy Hollywood function wearing sunglasses that strongly resembled diving goggles. To make matters worse, they seemed to be covered in fish-net stocking material.
- Being sexy doesn’t mean you can get away with it
Johnny Depp has a reputation for being one of the sexiest male actors in the world right now. He is also one of the strangest actors in the world right now. If you have seen Sweeney Todd and Alice in Wonderland you will know exactly why! It seems that Depp can do no wrong, especially in the eyes of the female population. However, when he puts on those weird yellow sunglasses of his, its easy to forget how hot he is. When he is wearing them he looks like a slightly crazy magician about to pull Alice’s rabbit out of an oversized hat.
- That’s so 2000 and late
The Black Eyed Peas have made a fantastic name for themselves by creating a new sound in the music world. Fans all over the globe go crazy for their songs and every thing they do seems to turn to gold. Fergie is the only girl in this group and she is as well known for her beauty and great singing voice as she is for her unique taste in sunglasses. The singer was snapped a while ago wearing what looked like a protective-laboratory pair of sunglasses. She did not look up when the photo was snapped by a paparazzo, leaving one to debate whether she could actually see through the lenses or not.
These are but a few of the celebs right now that are wearing the latest weird and wonderful sunglasses developed and designer by major fashion brands out there. There are many more, too many to mention here in fact. Just think of Kanye, Beyonce, and Katy Perry etc. It really seems that many of these starts would rather die than be out of fashion. At shopbyus.com we have different varieties of sunglasses to suite every taste.
