Guest Contribution : 5 Great Sunglasses brands

What makes a sunglasses brand great? First of all, it’s the quality of their products. This includes the materials used and the craftsmanship. Then, there’s design, which to some is even more important than quality. Last, but not least, it’s all about business. Taking the right decision at the right time means a successful label. Below are five famous sunglasses models, all created by brands who knew when it was time to enter the field, and how to do it. Click here for amazing brands that have defined what sunglasses are.

5 GREAT SUNGLASS BRANDS

1. Ray Ban Wayfarer. The brand was founded in 1937 with the purpose of making goggles for pilots. They branched out into eyewear for the masses, and to great success. The Wayfarers are one of the most popular sunglasses models of our times, although they’ve been previously adored in the 50s and 80s. Click here for more Ray Ban models on GlassesOnWeb.com.

2. Prada 27 NS. What began as a leathergoods shop in 1913’s Italy evolved slowly, but steadily. They launched a ready-to-wear line for the first time in 1989, and one year later they started designing eyewear. The past few years have been huge for Prada sunglasses, most of their collections immediately becoming popular with the fashion crowd.

3. Persol 0649. Similar to Ray Ban, the brand started early on (1917) to provide eyewear for a specific demographics (tram drivers). Their most famous model was popularized by Steve McQueen in the 60s, and it was revived in the past few years by both male and female celebrities.

4. Tom Ford Nikita. The designer launched his namesake brand in 2006, complete with menswear, beauty, eyewear and accessories. Already experienced from Gucci and YSL, Tom Ford knew what he wanted. Just a few years later, his sunglasses are worn by virtually any famous face and are coveted worldwide.

5. Miu Miu 10 NS. The sister brand of Prada, Miu Miu was founded in 1993. The brand soon launched an eyewear line, which became successful in no time. Along with their pentagonal frames, these are the most popular of recent seasons, especially in their glitter version.

Mixed Feelings About Kim in V Magazine…..

Hiya Poutlings!

As much as I have in the past always disregarded everything Kim Krapdashian, as we fondly call her around here has done, lets be honest here, we simply just call a spade a spade, right? Well, I must also give credit where it is due, as Kim is appearing in V Magazine for the fall’s travel edition 2012 and here are some of the shots…. Which I believe are absolutely beautiful, sans the god damn fur!!

PFFT to her for being a fur wearing whore.

Do I think  Kim K is a great model, no. Look at these shots, even though they are photographed perfectly BUT she has the exact same expression throughout, sometimes opening her eyes and sometimes closing them. That must take skill… not. Even with that being said, these pictures are eerily emotive, and I do like them. Oh my god, I cannot believe I like something that is in some way related to a Krapdashian.

Photographed by the ever talented Nick Knight in London, the photo spread includes Kim wearing Tom Ford, Giorgio Armani and of course Kanye West.

Kim K in Kanye West… does this dress not look similiar to the one that Beyonce wore to the Met Gala…? Just saying

What do you think?

Miley Covers Marie Claire September 2012

Heya Poutlings!

I did mention this on my mini blurb post on our Pout Perfection Facebook Page yesterday but these images are spectacular and as such require their own fresh post!

Helping the publication boost sales, Miley Cyrus was picked to cover the September 2012 issue of Marie Claire.

Miley looks striking in a Christian Dior dress on the magazine’s front page while rocking looks from top designers including Paco Rabanne, Aquilano Rimondi, Tom Ford, Versage, Roberto Cavalli and Kanye West throughout Tesh’s Malibu Hills held photoshoot.

The magazine will be on sale in the states from 17th of August, I thought I’d share a few of the highlights from the interview.

Miley on being engaged to Liam Hemsworth:

Life is too short not to be with the person you want to be with. I don’t really care about the wedding or the piece of paper as much as I do the promise we’ve made to each other. And we want to have a long engagement

On her dog, Ziggy:

She’s a stubborn little bitch, that one. She doesn’t listen to me. She’s in love with Liam. She loves me when he’s gone, but she totally ate my diamonds on purpose. She was pooping them out all morning.

On her vintage engagement ring:

I had no input. We’d been kind of talking about [getting engaged], and I saw something like it online at one point and thought it was really pretty, but I usually wear rose gold. I just love that it’s old and has a story. And I’m happy because it doesn’t look like anything else I wear.

I absolutely love these images of Miley looking as fabulous as ever!
