If you’re celebrity savvy like us you will have been watching all the action at the recent 2009 Cannes Film Festival with interest. The stars, the dresses, the parties and the gossip kept us entertained for at least a week!
Angelina and Brad put on a show of togetherness in answer to reports of an imminent split. Penelope Cruz braved the festival whilst suffering with flu. Twilight’s Robert Pattinson’s non-stop partying was widely reported. Surprise at the pairing of Hero’s Hayden Panettiere and T4’s Steve Jones, seen canoodling onboard David Furnish’s yacht for the duration of the festival. Paris Hilton and her beau Doug Reinhart courting the paps as usual and Mariah Carey promoting her new film ‘Precious’. As well as 2 films depicting the life of Mademoiselle Chanel and an appearance from Chanel‘s Creative Director, the unflappable Karl Lagerfeld, made for an exciting festival.
The French Riviera was awash with Hollywood Glitterati and the sun shone brightly, so unsurprisingly we were treated to a role call of the latest, most fashionable designer sunglasses as modelled by the A-Listers.
Police sunglasses were a popular choice amongst the men, with director Quentin Tarantino, rapper Neyo and the newly reformed Spandau Ballet all sporting various cool looking styles. Brad Pitt took to the Red Carpet for his movie ‘Inglourious Basterds’ wearing top to toe Tom Ford including a sharp looking pair of Tom Ford style aviators. Both Robert Pattinson and Orlando Bloom flew the flag for Ray Ban, with the Twilight star rocking some Ray Ban Clubmasters and Bloom wearing nothing but swimming shorts and a pair of Ray Ban Wayfarers.
German born Diane Kruger is rarely seen without her Ray Ban Wayfarers and Cannes was no exception this year. Eva Longoria turned up the heat with a sizzling pair of large red Gina sunglasses by Louis Vuitton accompanied by her husband, basketball player Tony Parker. Red head Julianne Moore was pictured wearing a stunning pair of oversized black Gucci sunglasses and singer Mariah Carey chose a fabulous pair of Roberto Cavalli sunglasses for her photo call. Closing this year’s festival was Chanel muse and actress Anna Mouglalis with her film ‘Coco Chanel & Igor Strvinsky’ wearing… Chanel sunglasses – bien sur!

If you are seeking the perfect pair of sporting quality sunglasses, look no further than Oakley. Originally designed for solely sports purposes, the range over the past two years has become incredibly on trend yet still remains true to its sporting roots.
Some of the most popular Oakley frames include the M frame, Half Jacket, Custom M , and Juliet. Another high tech Oakley addition for this season is the Oakley Thump MP3 player sunglasses, which incorporates an MP3 player within the design. Oakley as a brand is renowned for pushing design boundaries and anticipates the wearer’s needs or desires. Similarly some of the new frames also offer a blue tooth feature enhancing the ‘always on the go’ vibe of the brand. The range of Oakley frames available and the fact that they are budget friendly means that when you want to diversify your look, it is easy to do so as the brand also offer a huge variety of lens colour options. Oakley lenses have been technically designed to balance the absorption of light meaning that they serve perfect eye protection for even the most extreme sports such as skating snowboarding and surfing – as well as looking great of course! Their innovative design maintains visual clarity from all angles of view making them outstanding eyewear.
Oakley prides itself on maintaining loyalty and is definitely more of a lifestyle brand as opposed to solely for the purpose of style and fashion. Most people who own a pair of Oakley sunglasses will likely stick to the brand because they like what it represents. Oakley also offers a service whereby you can customise your frames (this service is available via Shadestation) including the lens colour and lens etching meaning that your shades can be completely unique to your style and needs.
