Bvlgari sunglasses are quite simply, the ultimate in exquisite Italian style. Designed for ladies, Bvlgari sunglasses are elegant, chic, bold and incredibly luxurious. Worn by celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Mariah Carey, Angelina Jolie and Penelope Cruz, Bvlgari shades are synonymous with A list Hollywood style and can add a striking finishing touch to even the most casual of outfits.
Due to aesthetic features such as rich toned gemstones, elaborate hinge and arm detailing, and autumnal coloured frames, Bvlgari sunglasses are the perfect winter accessory, as despite the weather not being as hot as we may like, our eyes still need to be protected from the sun’s rays. Plus, Bvlgari sunglasses add the perfect finishing touch to a winter look, so it would be a shame to waste the opportunity to wear them!
There are a fabulous selection of new Bvlgari styles to choose from this season. First up, we have the BV8081B sunglasses, which in typical Bvlgari style, are oversized boasting a square shaped frame with a more rounded interior frame section to infuse a sense of femininity to the design. The frame and arms are classic black, but rich colour is incorporated in the form of a large and stunning violet toned gemstone positioned upon the hinge. The lenses are also graduated violet for a chic and colour inspired finish.
For something a little lighter in tone but retaining the luxurious Bvlgari look, the BV8079B Bvlgari sunglasses feature a textured beige frame, purple arms and a purple toned gemstone embellished hinge. This style is more understated, than some Bvlgari styles but still oozes elegance, sophistication and the essence of true Italian style!
If you prefer a more sporty style of sunglasses but still want them to convey a high-fashion edge, then a visor style from the Bvlgari collection could be just the thing you’re looking for. The new BV6050B sunglasses for example, feature a dark blue upper frame section, a luxe blue gemstone hinge, elegantly curving arms and a graduated grey lens. The ultimate in fusing stylish with sporty!
These are just a selection of new styles to choose from and the Bvlgari collection really has something to appeal to a variety of tastes whether you prefer a more overstated look, or something more demure. Bvlgari sunglasses are real show piece accessories, boast expert craftmanship, alluringly ornate and decorative detailing, and will add the perfect finishing touch to every look.

You might just be able to get away with it if you’re an A-lister, but anyone lower down in the celebrity alphabet than that and you’re pushing it. Despite what you think, wearing sunglasses in inappropriate places is just not cool. No matter how effortless and care-free you think you look, you don’t. Don’t be fooled by passersby staring at you, they are not jealous of your understated style, they are probably weighing up how much of a try-hard you are on a scale of 1 – 10. A little harsh you may think, but you’ve got to be cruel to be kind.
However there are, as with any set of unspoken fashion rules, loopholes in the debate of when and where sunglasses suffice (when it’s not actually sunny). For example, if you have a headache, sunglasses can stop the glaring daylight pouring into your peepers. Other acceptable reasons include when you’re harbouring a hangover, driving, in mourning or on your holidays. The following locations on the other hand, are not the right places to be shading your eyes…
On the tube – there is no natural light, you look ridiculous.
In a nightclub – even worse than the tube, you shouldn’t have even been let in.
In the dark – it’s nighttime, it’s pitch black, the only explanation is you can’t find the mirror.
On a date – all very well if you’re going alfresco but eye contact is an important part of connecting. Lose that and you’ll lose out.
In work – it’s not big, it’s not clever and it’s certainly not professional.
In bed – don’t do it…ever.
But it’s not only the everyday folk who lose their way when it comes to the who, what, where and why of sunglasses. Celeb’s including Mariah Carey, Usher, P.Diddy, Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Paris Hilton, Razorlight’s Johnny Borrell, the Beckhams, the Olsens and Bono have all become victim to taking their sunglasses addiction a tad too far, wearing them at launch parties, award ceremonies, gallery openings, press conferences and basketball games. They might be hoping it makes them more inconspicuous, but anyone wearing sunglasses inside is going to find blending into the background a challenge. So if you’d rather not be the talked-about focal point (for all the wrong reasons) let this be a warning to you – when the sun goes down, the shades must come off!

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!
