Refinery29: Cat Eye Sunglasses Get a Modern Makeover

We understand why Wayfarers have been the go-to shades for the past few seasons—the shape is classic and it suits so many faces. But we are more than ready to see things a little differently.

We understand why Wayfarers have been the go-to shades for the past few seasons—the shape is classic and it suits so many faces. But we are more than ready to see things a little differently. Cat eye frames are the newest (oldest!) shape du jour, and designers are definitely having some fun playing around with this classic ’50s staple. For their spring 2010 shows, Alexander Wang, Giles Deacon, and Miuccia Prada revealed oversized versions of the frames in statement-making colors like gold, hot pink, and orange. Model and It-girl Dree Hemingway wasted no time sporting the Deacon specs right off the runway. Christian Dior and Proenza Schouler are now offering pared-down sleeker versions, and we’re happy to see Mary-Kate Olsen in something that doesn’t entirely overwhelm her pretty face. But if you like that bug-eyed Rachel Zoe look, Betsey Johnson and Balenciaga have some vintage-inspired options. Yes, looking like a Pink Lady just got a bit easier.

  5. Great write-up, I’ve rescued this site so with any luck, I will find more for this subject matter sometime soon!

  6. Here you have the best data. Thanks to him you will know well how to deal with problems.

  7. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
