The Audrey Hepburn
When I think of iconic celebrity sunglasses, the first person I think of is Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's. These cat eye frames scream glamour and truly take a stylish centre stage in this 1961 classic.
Twiggy rose to supermodel fame in the 1960's and these shades were a prominent item in her day to day look. With her pixie crop, her thick doll eyelashes and a pair of these round, thick-framed sunglasses, her look became iconic and one that is still recognisable today.
The Tom Cruise
In 1986, Tom Cruise wore a pair of Ray-Ban aviators in the film, Top Gun. The sunglasses quickly became iconic and it was reported by Time Magazine that the Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses sales jumped 40% after their appearance in this classic movie.
