Long back, glasses were a symbol of old age, and people wore their glasses only when absolutely necessary. But its no longer the case. There has been a sea change in eye-wear as celebrities begin to influence fashion. Celebrities wear designer (stylish and fashionable) eyeglasses to look fashionable, to look different – be it for press appearance, fashion show, or red carpet event.
Eyeglasses today are a much sought after piece of fashion. While many wear eyeglasses as an accessory to their wardrobe, eyeglasses can make you look stylish and make a fashion statement, besides making a bold statement about your personality.
And yes, people do get influenced by the eyeglasses that celebrities wear.
Bollywood celebs and their Eyewear
Here are a few Bollywood celebs who have made eyewear an integral part of their personality.
Amitabh Bachchan: Amitabh Bachchan is always seen in his trademark dark-hued round eyeglasses.
Shahrukh Khan: SRK has a great sense of eyewear fashion. Shahrukh prefers Tag Heuer eyeglasses, and Aviator.
Kajol: Her favourite ones seems to be the bold rectangular pair that lends an intellectual aura to her exuberance.
Deepika Padukone: Thick rimmed nerdy rectangular, Wayfarer or cat eye frames are her style statement. Dippy is also an Aviator fan (probably got inspired by SRK).
Why do Celebrities Wear Sunglasses at Night (Airports
Why do fashion-savvy film actors come out of airports, wearing sunglasses, even in the middle of the night, when its pitch dark outside?
While we might think its funny, they do have a reason, as revealed by a top actress who returned back home after her holidays.
“I hadn’t slept too well on the flight and knew there would be photographers at the airport. Since I didn’t want them to capture my puffy eyes, I got off the flight wearing my shades,” revealed the actress.
So now that’s a valid reason – to hide red/puffy eyes. After all, they are in the show business and cannot afford to look a ‘Plain Jane’
Sunglasses also helps them to avoid direct eye-contact with other travellers and fans at airports.
