WOW! Now I already love the Daddy B from Oliver
Peoples, but Beyonce just put them on a whole other level, as in being
helps make sunglasses look better. It's by far my fav looking
Wayfarer-ish style around and will prolly be around for some time to
come; similar to OP's Strummer, Aero, etc. We spotted them on Jay-Z
in the past, so I'd imagine that she simply borrowed his. Now the only
question is do I dare post a Who Wore It Best? Find

Beyonce's wearing some shades here from
Balenciaga. It's very clean and simple for them, but a decent look. The
only notable feature is the color to clear transition in the frame
bottom. The shape is a basic oversized round kinda deal. It's nice, but
not outstanding. You
can buy 'em
So we've got B Knowles here in Hollywood's new
favorite style from Lanvin. This style is a little more edgy than your
typical aviator with its industrial steel detailing all over the front.
It's definitely not for beginners and recommended only for those who
that swagger to pull them off. We like these; they're fun and trendy.

Knowles - Kieselstein Cord - Big Bird
It's crazy that in
almost 2 years of this site's
existence we've never seen anyone in the brand
Kieselstein Cord before. It's under the same family as Chrome Hearts
& manufactured by OSA international. This timeless style is
called Big Bird and they're simply beautiful. It's a piece that feels
more like jewelry as opposed to just a pair of sunglasses. Think of
these as you would a Rolex. It's something that you would wear forever
based on quality, instead of trends. PS - They look nice on Beyonce :)

Beyonce's wearing some
sunnies from AM Eyewear called Samantha. AM Eyewear is an Australian
company focusing on hip, youthful eyewear and while I can see what they
were going for with this one, it just doesn't work. The goggle "look"
may work with the larger, more rounded shield frames, but with this one
it looks like the bastard lovechild of a welder's mask and a trendy
dinner plate. It's an extremely hard style to pull off, even for
Beyonce, I can't fault her for trying, but these just aren't right.

Knowles - Marc Jacobs - 279/S
Beyonce is the first
celeb that we've spotted in this style from Marc Jacobs and, honestly,
that's a good thing. Seriously, the shape is like unwearable with its
silly pointed corners. We know that some will argue that they are just
high fashion and they look good. Well, then we challenge you to go and
try them on and let us know if you still think that they're worth over
3 bills. Yucky!!! If
you still insist, you can Buy 'em here!

Knowles - Ray-Ban - 2140
So we don't say this
very often, but hey, we're just keeping it real when we say that these
Ray-Ban's look like buttwagon on Beyonce. Yes, she's beautiful, but the
glasses almost look like they were photo-shopped on her. Or maybe
that's just cause they look so awkward on her face. Sometimes when
you're hot, you prolly just think you can rock anything and it will
work. So in our opinion these look terrible on her, but I'm still
excited to get like 50 comments saying we're wrong :) Buy 'em
like the rest of Hollywood, Beyonce just couldn't resist the allure of
Clubmaster. Just take a look at how cool and retro she looks now.
Honestly, they will have you looking as cool as a Jonas in a Wayfarer.
I wish that I would have known that these would come back in style, I
could have asked my great, great, great, great-grandfather to hold on
to them for me.
You can find 'em here!
So we're not too sure
about this one on Beyonce. Obviously she still looks pretty under the
glasses, but these prolly aren't for her. This frame from Grey Ant is
so HUGE that it really overwhelms whoever is wearing them. And because
of that only a select few will be able to rock a style like this.

Knowles - Persol - 0714
Hey everyone, it's
Hollywood's favorite ugly pair again from Persol. Honestly, are you
guys still going to tell us that these look good? Look at them. Looks
like something your grandmother might wear. Find'em
Louis Vuitton - Faux Semblant Carre
We've got Beyonce at the
beach in some shades from Louis Vuitton. This is your basic Wayfarer
look with a touch of Louie added to it. The temples feature the
traditional hinge detailing inspired from the Louis Vuitton trunks and
luggage. It's a decent look that can be worn by both men and women.

Knowles - Ray-Ban - 3025
Beyonce was wearing
classic Ray-Ban aviators to complete her police officer look in her
upcoming video "If I Was a Boy". She looks pretty cute as 5O,
Here's Beyonce wearing
another new style from Chanel. It's a square retro frame with Chanel's
quilt pattern on the temple. What can you really say? Yes they are
nice, but we've seen stuff like this from Chanel like 100 times. Boo.

Knowles - Chanel - Boutique Exclusive #2
Chanel has released some
Boutique Exclusives and this is style #2. It's definitely not my
favorite from their vintage
collection and not what I recommend for Beyonce. Sorry
Chanel, I still love you. :)
