Since the invention of motion pictures, movie stars have turned to sunglasses to transform them from ordinary to celebrity status. These movies were good to begin with, but these 5 pairs of sunglasses made them really stick out. Here are the 5 best sunglass appearances in movie history.
1. Breakfast at Tiffany’s
This pair of sunglasses makes an appearance on the ever-iconic face of Audrey Hepburn. Add to that a Givenchy LBD and an outrageously long cigarette, and we’ve made history.
2. The Matrix
Forget Google Glass, Carrie-Anne Moss was way ahead of the trends. This fierce cyber chick is complete with a sleek black jacket, sleek black hair and sleek black shades. In fact, after the film, Moss said, “I can’t wear sunglasses. As soon as I put them on, people recognize me.”
3. The Hunger
This cunning look, belonging to the beloved Catherine Deneuve, helped to solidify the timeless trendy cat-eye look that everyone is so fond of today.
4. Taxi Driver
Wedge sandals, cropped top, luscious curls, and a floppy happy was the classic style of the ’70s. But add the giant round sunglasses of Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver, and that is a celebrity never to forget.
5. Top Gun
Tom Cruise has a way with sunglasses. From Risky Business to Top Gun, sunglasses have always helped to define the “Tom Cruiseness” that no one can seem to resist. Thank God he met his match in this classic movie, and switched to the aviators that complement Kelly McGillis’s aviator pair.
