LOOK Ray Ban!
We know, more than most, that Ray Ban's the most popular brand of sunglass in the world but even we were surprised to see so many celebrities wearing Ray Ban sunglasses in LOOK magazine's 16 March 2009 issue.
First up, on page 33, loved up couple Kelly Osbourne and Luke Worral in matching Ray Ban sunglasses (left), bless! Whilst everyone's heard of Kelly Osbourne few people have heard of Kelly's 19 year old fiancé Luke.
You'd never guess by looking at this image alone but Luke Worral is a young, upcoming supermodel who was spotted by an agency in 2007 whilst on a skateboard at a skate park and has walked down the runway for Marc by Marc Jacobs, starred in a French and British Vogue editorial, been photographed with supermodel Agyness Deyn, and last year became the face of Vivienne Westwood, Topman and Marc by Marc Jacobs. Wow! And what does one of the world's hottest male supermodels wear when he's off duty'' Ray Ban's Clubmaster in black, of course!
The forever ubiquitous Clubmaster's presence in the fashion and media industry is as prominent as ever and was most recently seen on Katy Perry in Thinking of You, her latest music video. Ray Ban's newest 3016 editions are bound to be your favourite piece of 50s vintage this millennium. Previously available in tortoiseshell and black, Ray Ban's mythical model is now availablele in 7 new pearly colours.
She's a far cry from a supermodel at 5ft 3 but Kelly Osbourne's a quirky style icon none the less and we were equally excited to see her wearing the Clubmasters' competition, Ray Ban's original 2140 Wayfarer. Again, the 2140 looks as though it's come straight out of the 50s with its 50s American pop culture inspired design, a sinuous brow lines, mineral glass lenses and over sprung pin hinges. As well as wearing matching Ray Ban shades Kelly and Luke were both donned in matching Fedora hats.
Turn to page 45 and there's Lindsay Lohan wearing her trademark Ray Ban 3025 Aviators in gold L0205 (right) which are as instantly recognisable as the actress' long flowing red hair. If you take a minute out and search 'Lindsay Lohan' on the internet and have a quick glance through the thousands of image results you'll notice that most of the pictures have one thing in common, Ray Ban Aviators. Although Ray Ban frames need no introduction as they speak for themselves Lindsay's notable love of Ray Ban has helped push the 3025 to its undeniable iconic status.
LOOK's editorial (pages 76-83) pays homage to perennial neutrals, sexy sports wear and neon flashes. Think neon, think all new Ray Ban CATS 5000 pink (left)! Last month, fashion week was alight with neon brights, confirming that neon is the new black. Ray Ban is 70 years in the making and unlike most eyewear brands, Ray Ban experience the golden age of neon first hand. For 2009, the prestigious sunglass giant has applied its first hand knowledge of neon's luminous hues to it's beguiling Ray Ban CATS 5000 which will undoubtedly be bursting onto the scene this summer in a selection of mouth watering colours. The CATS 5000 is a contemporary fastidious aviator full of extreme and exciting twists. Inspired by Ray Ban's original aviator, the 5000's gradient tear drop lenses are set in an innovational bold acetate frame that seemingly sharpens the overall finish and emphasises the sinuosity of the oblique lenses. If you were a dog person before you're a CAT fan now!
If you were one of the many millions who watched nine pampered celebrities climb Kilimanjaro to raise money for Comic Relief than you'd have spotted another member of the CAT family, Ray Ban CATS 4000 in black crystal polarised, which was worn by Girls Aloud's Kimberly Walsh. Virtually identical to the Ray Ban CATS 5000, the 4000 model is a soft, sporty square aviator frame available with polarised lenses which filter out glare from reflective surfaces. Kimberly's fellow band member and climbing buddy, Cheryl Cole, was wearing Chanel's 5131H from the Chanel Pearl collection. Both of these frames can be seen on the girls on page 34 of Now magazine 16 March 2009 and page 28 of Heat magazine issue 14-20 March 2009.
