Trendsetter

Like hairstyles and clothes, spectacles too have become a style statement, especially among the celebrities. Be it a reality show or casual day out with friends, celebs know how to create a buzz with their cool casual quotient, leaving adoring fans to fashion their style statements after their icons.

The Shahenshah of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan has never been seen without his glasses in the past many years. Be it on the sets of Kaun Banega Crorepati or at any social gathering. Generally seen in thick rimmed glasses, Big B’s favourite pair seems to be a semi-circular shaped tortoise print spectacles. He may not be as energetic as before and his brooding dark eyes may look droopy owing to old age, but the 72 year-old Bachchan still makes heads turn.

In KBC Season 7, he sported some of the funkiest wayfarer eyeglasses, geeky, colourful and amazingly trendy. His outrageous attire may have left a few tongues wagging but his eyewear was a trend setter.       

Cat’s eye glasses are one of the hot trends of the year. From shades to prescription spectacles, cat’s eye glasses are in great demand in the eye wear market and looks great on just about anyone. The cat eye trend traces its roots to the 1950s and 1960s when Hollywood heavyweights like Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor rocked the style no end. So ladies, channel your inner old Hollywood and grab a pair of these retro beauties.

The round, wired frames worn by Mahatma Gandhi have inspired many a fashion label. The super trendy round eyeglasses were the only shape one could find in the early 20th century. Round eyeglasses are simple and natural, honest and intelligent, thoughtful, independent and smart. They have always been a favourite with movie stars, sports athletes, authors, celebrities and political figures to add personality and flair. Remember John Lennon and his geeky avatar or closer to the times, Harry Potter!

Actor Robert Downey Jr’s eyewear sure defines his style and his growing years. At the Red Carpet Premiere of Ironman 3, he walked with such flair in his tuxedo and wayfarer eyeglasses that the cameras did not get any breathing space. Thick temples and tinted lenses, usually in purple or amber, the Hollywood actor’s eyewear is a trend-setter. Nothing like a signature style, but  Downey Jr’s classic Aviators with custom blue lenses are truly breathtaking.


Eyewear is about to get bigger and bolder in 2015 through quirky, statement-making frames. From colour blocked frames to unusual shapes, it’s going to be an exciting year ahead for those who like to define their
style and attitude with
their eyewear.
