National Sunglasses Day-5 Coolest Celebrity Shade Wearers
Today, June 27, is National Sunglasses Day, a day we set aside to draw attention to that coolest of accessories. The reasons we wear sunglasses range from protecting our eyes from the sun to making a fashion statement to simply looking “cool”. Check out some of the best known celebrity shade wearers.
"The Epitome of Cool"
"With my sunglasses on, I'm Jack Nicholson. Without them I'm fat and 60". So said Jack to AskMen.com a few years ago. He is rarely seen in public without a pair of stylish Ray-bans and has made them an integral part of his image.
Tom Cruise in "Risky Business"
"My name is Joel Goodson. I deal in human fulfillment"
The Ray-ban Wayfarers Tom Cruise wore as Joel Goodson in "Risky Business" turned him from high school grad into "human fulfillment" entrepreneur. Helped sell a lot of Wayfarers for Ray-Ban too.
Will Smith in "Men in Black"
The Ray-Ban 2030 Predator's Will wore in "Men in Black" fit his character perfectly. Co-star Tommy Lee Jones wore the same style with the result being a boost in sales for this style.
The rimless retro 1960's Renault shades worn by Johnny in "The Rum Diaries" weren't for everyone but on him they looked ultra cool.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
While serving as First Lady she sported a more conservative style. However after her White House years her more contemporary large, round sunglass frames became a fashion sensation.
