Celebrity Trends of 2012: High-Quality Glasses on Celebs , Manhattan, New York

It's not hard to find our favorite celebrities strutting down the red carpet, making their way into entertainment news, or even just walking down Fashion Avenue in New York City. Among the influx of trends they bring us year after year, fashionable, high-quality eyewear is in this season. Whether it's funky and different, or just bold enough to make a statement, celebrities in Hollywood are bringing sexy back this season.

Here's a couple of styles that peaked our interest with a couple of fashion-forward celebrities:


Amber Rose has brought her unique fashion sense to the world ever since she began to sport wide lens spectacles on the red carpet. She is famous for not only her model-esque looks, but also her relationship with rap artist Kanye West, landing her at the top of the must-watch list.

Everything from classic vintage Chanel glasses (which she made famous) to designer shield sunglasses and aviators are this socialite's well-known look. Yet you can occassionally find her sporting eccentric rectangular sunglasses or exaggerated over-sized shades when she's roaming the streets of NYC or out for a photo shoot.

Amber offers a rather casual and appealing celebrity trend to wearing these glasses on any occassion.


It's also hard to miss the beauty and elegance that is captured by celebrity and Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and actress Alicia Keys. Making her way into the music industry with mesmorizing lyrics and elegant piano play, Alicia Keys sports glasses in a very fashionable way. This celebrity mom wastes no time putting together a look that's all her own, assuring her celebrity playboy boyfriend, producer Swizz Beats, that he's made the right choice.

Her sophisticated look is one that is admired among many women and she is known to add modified Wayfarer style glasses with thick black frames to many of her classy and fashionable looks. One of Alicia's signature looks also include non-tinted aviators that simply draws attention from every angle.


The fashion world has also been known to use music as a source of inspiration, and hip hop artist Kanye West introduces his fashion sense as a trend with ease. Whether the lyrical artist is entertaining at concerts with rap icon Jay-Z or walking through the streets of NYC, you can be sure to catch him add a new style to his collection.

While Kanye has indeed popularized an 80s fashion trend again by sporting shutter shades, you can also find the heavy hitting artist wearing what is defined as "hip hop glasses." Everyone from Jay-Z to Wiz Kalifa, T.I and Most Def have famously defined thick, black framed glasses as a personal style for the masses. Pair this with a trendy outfit for the red carpet and this look definitely completes the ensemble as a fashion accessory.
