I once had a friend who had an incredible fashion talent. She could put on any pair of sunglasses, and they would look amazing on her! Whether they were aviators, cat-eyes, ski mask-inspired shades, or the best celebrity sunglasses, they would instantly frame her face in a stunning fashion.
I can’t say that I share this talent, but neither can most celebrities. However, style stars out in the world today definitely have one rule they follow in the fashion department: when they find something that looks chic they stick with it. That goes for wearing sunglasses, too. They find sunglasses to make a statement and you can, too!
Some, like Kardashian-Jenners and Olivia Palermo, go as far as to create their own celebrity sunglasses collections. Others, like in the case of Priyanka Chopra, find their personal trademark shades style. Then there are celebs, like JLo, can look incredible in pretty much in any pair of shades.
Here are celebrities wearing sunglasses that take them to the next level.
6 of The Best Celebrity Sunglasses
Here are some of the best celebrity sunglasses you can wear now!
1. Kim Kardashian West for Carolina Lemke Berlin Sunglasses
Kim Kardashian West, who has been known to run the gamut when it comes to wearing a stellar pair of sunglasses, has teamed up with model pal Bar Refaeli and Israeli-brand Carolina Lemke Berlin to bring forth a futuristic capsule collection for the eyewear brand in 2019. The Kim Kardashian West Collection featured Kim and other lookalikes all wearing black modeling frames that looked out-of-this-world. The sunglasses are a little hard to find but they are still available on eBay and many designer resale outlets.

2. Westward Leaning x Olivia Palermo Sunglasses
Kim Kardashian West isn’t the only one making an impact by creating and wearing her very own sunglasses. Style icon, socialite, fashionista and street style guru Olivia Palermo has established her third collaboration with one of Hollywood’s favorite eyewear brands, Westward Learning, in a collection featuring 13 stylish pairs of shades in a variety of shades and shapes. The collection features three new frame shapes designed by Olivia, along with sunnies named after the fashionista’s favorite global destinations, like London’s Mayfair St. and Tribeca’s Moore St.
But wait, there’s more. In an incredibly stylish move, Olivia and the brand will donate 10 percent of the collection’s net profits to the non-profit organization Dress For Success, which has a mission to empower women to achieve economic independence.
How does she promote the collection? By modeling the stylish eyewear herself, of course. You’ve probably seen Olivia pairing different shades with her outfits at London and Paris fashion weeks recently. Styles from Westward Leaning x Olivia Palermo range from $235 to $285.
3. Jennifer Lopez Sunglasses – Quay Australia Needing Fame
Quay Australia is known for its oversize frames and its incredible affordable eyewear. Adding to the brand’s IT factor is the ever-so-trendy Jennifer Lopez, who has been seen out and about in the Desi Perkins High Key aviators and the Needing Fame shades. While the brand’s website offers its customers the chance to “steal the spotlight” and “get a dose of fame in these celeb faves,” why don’t they just tell them that wearing these funky shades means being as cool as JLo?

4. Priyanka Chopra – Illesteva ‘Pamela’ Sunglasses
While there are so many of us (myself included) who prefer the oversize frames, there’s a quiet army of fashionable ladies who choose tiny shades with sharp, accented features to their bug-eyed counterparts. Enter Priyanka Chopra, queen of the celebrity cat-eye sunglasses, who has been seen in many a fierce feline look when it comes to her recent trendy sunglasses. The white pair she wears in the picture above are especially noteworthy.

5. Kendall + Kylie Sunglasses
Kendall and Kylie Jenner aren’t usually our go-to for the latest fashion trends for stylish older women. But alas, you can’t argue that the sunglasses they’ve created are something special. Yes the eyewear line launched in 2017 and was inspired by everything from Marilyn Monroe to the twenty-somethings’ own fashion sense. But no one can dispute that the shades have a vibrant maturity that keeps them looking, well, wise beyond their years.

The QUAY X LIZZO Collection is inspired by Lizzo’s bold, unapologetic style with new takes on some of Quay’s fan-favorite shades. There is also a sunnies chain that works as a necklace or bracelet. There is a wide variety of styles from wire aviators to shield styles and cat eyes. You are bound to find a Lizzo style that is right for you.
