To emphasize our point in the last blog post that just because a frame is within a men’s or women’s collection, it doesn’t mean it only flatters men or women, we present you with this photo of Harry Potter himself Daniel Radcliffe wearing a pair of Robert Marc 677 sunglasses – from the women’s collection!
Now that the actor has hung up the cape and wand for good, he’s looking pretty stylish these days, especially with his choice of accessories. With such dark features, the lightness of the Vintage Crystal acetate frame adds contrast that really makes the sunglasses stand out. The complementary tortoise pattern along the arms rounds out the whole look as well.
This frame has a great retro look, with its rounded grey lenses and wide keyhole bridge. The arms feature the brand’s signature hinge design as well, with the silver strip around the temple and a silver dot accent on each side. The 677 is also available in Vintage Tortoise with gray lenses, Matte Tortoise with brown lenses, Amber with gray lenses and tortoise arms, and Clear Gray with gray lenses and black arms.
So that settles it – don’t be afraid to peruse the men’s section if you’re a lady, and vice versa. You just might find the most flattering style for you!

Netflix is batting a thousand with its original and exclusive series – “Orange is the New Black,” “Arrested Development,” “Hemlock Grove” – but one of our favorites that has really stood out is “House of Cards,” starring Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and Kate Mara. Wright plays the wife of a mischievous congressman Frank Underwood, looking gorgeous with her asymmetrical hairdo and more importantly, her chic, dark designer glasses.
We get a lot of requests to find out what various actors and actresses are wearing in movies and TV shows, and many people were wondering what Wright wears in “House of Cards.” This one was easy! Check out this photo for a good look. She’s wearing a pair of Ray Ban New Wayfarer eyeglasses in tortoise – a perfect complement to her blonde bob and fair skin.
The New Wayfarer is the opthalmic adaptation of the iconic Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses, with more rounded lenses that keep the look soft and more feminine. Each upper corner is embellished with a silver accent, while the temples boast a signature Ray Ban logo in silver on each side. The New Wayfarer is also available in shiny black, striped brown, as well as dark tortoise with orange, green or violet accents.
To make a purchase from the optical Ray Ban collection, please call Vizio Optic at 866-411-9428 or email email@example.com.
Fun fact: Mary McDonnell, star of TNT’s Major Crimes TV show, wears a pair of designer glasses you can find right here at Vizio Optic! Her role as LAPD Captain Sharon Raydor requires a strong and intelligent look, so they dressed her up in a flattering suit and finished the look with a pair executive-style glasses. By request, we did a little research and determined she’s wearing ProDesign 1687 eyeglasses in Havana! Check out this photo at majorcrimestv.net for a better look.
Seen above in black, these ProDesign glasses are clearly a great choice for a woman in a powerful role. The rectangular lenses and dark frame add a sense of strength and structure, while laser-cut temples in champagne gold soften the overall look for good balance.
The 1687 is also available in green, with a brown-and-green acetate front rim and olive-colored arms. As we’ve mentioned before, ProDesign is one of the only brands out there that offer optional, adjustable nose pads with plastic frames, so if you love this particular style but are worried about them staying on well, let us know whether you’d like to add the nose pads to the frame when you order.
Are there any other television characters out there whose eyewear you admire? Let us know in the comments and we’ll try to find out what they’re wearing!
If you’ve seen Anthony Bourdain’s hit show “No Reservations,” you know that the chef/author is quite experienced with the beauty you can find all over the world. Whether he’s sampling live seafood in Korea or enjoy the local delicacies of Morocco, it’s clear that Bourdain knows a thing or two about the finer things in life.
This obviously means he is a huge fan of Persol sunglasses! We’ve seen him out and about on “No Reservations” with his favorite pair of Persols in the past, but he’s donning a brand new style in the ads for his new CNN show “Parts Unknown.”
Above, Bourdain is wearing Persol 3028S sunglasses in color 95/31, a beautiful Italian-made frame with a vintage-inspired keyhole bridge, a patented Meflecto design on the temples that relieves pressure on the head, and the brand’s signature arrow motif around the hinges. Silver accents can be seen on the bridge as well. This particular frame is quite convenient for those who are always on the go, as there are actually multiple hinges so you can just fold them up and tuck them away. Aside from the typical hinges on the outer corners, the bridge also folds in as well, making it easy to keep in your shirt pocket or a small compartment in your purse. This frame is also available in tortoise with silver accents.
Luxury doesn’t have to be inconvenient – would you go for a pair of fold-up sunglasses?
