Stars and their eyes – 3 iconic eyewear looks

With Christmas around the corner, you might want to switch up your look for the party season and ring in a stylish New Year with niche eyewear.

But between ticking presents off your list, decorating the tree and prepping the turkey, time’s tight for finding styles that really pop.

If you’re struggling for sparkling inspiration, the iconic eyewear looks of top celebs are a gift that just keeps giving.

So pour yourself a prosecco and celebrate the following stars and their eyes — you might just find fierce and fresh new frames for 2019 while you’re at it.

Dua Lipa

Songs like New Rules and One Kiss made stylish songstress Dua Lipa the most-streamed female artist in the UK in 2018, according to Apple Music and Spotify.

And she keeps the eyewear fans amongst her 22.5 million Instagram followers happy with sublime selfies sporting chic cat-eye sunglasses and oversized gold-tinted wire-rim shades.

Ed Sheeran

Suffolk superstar Ed has just announced a string of new live shows for 2019, including sell-out dates in Ipswich, Budapest and Leeds.

But as well as his legendary lyricism, what enchants us about this flame-haired hitmaker is the fab bold round and square frames which have become his trademark.

If you want to emulate this ‘hip to be square’ look, try a pair of black or tortoiseshell William Morris frames for size. And if you think you can give him a run for his money in the charts, ask Santa for an acoustic guitar and get strumming!

Denzel Washington

Whether he’s perfectly portraying history makers like Malcolm X or playing a troubled pilot in Flight, Denzel Washington always seems to look immaculate.

And he’s also one of the silver screen’s most prolific eyewear exponents, regularly rocking ice-cool aviator sunglasses and 60s clubmaster prescription styles.

He famously mislaid his reading glasses when grabbing a gong at the 2016 Golden Globe awards — but if you want to be a dapper don like Denzel, don’t forget to bag yourself a pair of traditional Ted Baker frames, treat yourself to a tailored suit and paint the town as red as Rudolph’s nose.
