Audrey Hepburn is one of my 'sunglass' heroines. She always looked amazing in them and they always seemed to be a perfect extension of her wardrobe. I usually wear one pair until I lose them. Except for my original Oliver Peoples Nerd sunglasses from the 1980s. I can not loose them. Though I try. But guess what? This year, I saw that they were redoing them and a very similar pair was at Bergdorf Goodmans. So I thought, hmmm... but no, I can not. I feel too Sarah Jessica Parker in Square Pegs. Besides my family laughs when I put them on in visual emergencies.
But getting back to my heroine, Audrey Hepburn. Just take a look:
Her sunglasses in the films, "Charade" love those!, "How to Steal a Million", "Roman Holiday" and "Two for the Road" were made by Olivier Goldsmith in London and I just read this morning in the New York Times that they are remaking the pair from "Breakfast at Tiffany's" which all sounds too fabulous. Olivier Goldsmith has a great website too with some incredible archival sunglasses.
