Katy Perry, who was recently in the news for her behavior on American Idol as well as her appearance and performance at the 52nd annual Grammy Awards, is a diva in many ways, especially in terms of retro fashion. She rocked a pair of retro-inspired Oliver Peoples Alina sunglasses with a sleek white streamline look across slightly horn-rimmed frames and very Ray-Ban-looking lenses.
Another great retro design was achieved by Chanel, with their Chanel- 5120 model which features large round lenses and frames with a white streamline bar across the brow. Checkered pattern temple bars add extra spice while the lens’ slight bulging gives a very fish-eye appearance.
Miu Miu designs several retro-inspired designs, the most interesting of which is the Miu Miu 02IS design in white, with round lenses framed in square plastic, giving a retro traditional look with modern flare. The white temple bars hoist the whole design higher on the face than traditional bug-eye frames, and the gradient tinting of the lenses adds extra retro flare. Both Katie Holmes and Paris Hilton sport these classy retro-modern shades.
Chloe also designs a retro set of sunglasses with a bit of
intensity, the Chloe 2180. These rounded, gradient-tinted lenses are supported by large horn-rimmed black frames with white ‘eyebrows’ along the top. The small temple bars stay obscure leaving the focus on the frontal design. Christina Aguilera loves these Chloe sunglasses, and the tiny logo on the temple bar is so unobtrusive its almost an understatement on a star as designer-friendly as Aguilera.
