Does anybody knows the designer of Paris Hilton sunglasses that she wore on the first episode of the simple life: goes to camp! ??? Thankx

These red sunglasses are going to clash with her orange prison jumpsuit.

Okay, those red Gucci sunglasses are like a unicorn, they only exist in your imagination! My husband wants to buy them for me as an anniversary gift but he cannot find them in any store anywhere. He called Gucci’s flagship store in NYC and they said it never was available there in that color, only in black and havana brown. So where do we find them? Don’t show us something that we can’t have!!!

I am going to be the 3rd or 4th person to say I like the wayfarers look. I have them, one in black and one in tort. I love to wear them on weekends with sweats or jeans and a t shirt. I am going to pass on the red and white sunglasses trend and just stick to basic black and brown.

No thanks, I like ’em in black better. Red doesn’t match with much whereas you can wear black sunglasses with everything.

v8 on seeing more and more bold colored shades.. i was at the beach and anything not black or brown gets your attention.
