Robert Downey Jr. in Ray Ban Sunglasses

Man of the moment, Robert Downey Jr., wasn’t always on top of the world. An insanely talented actor who rose to star status in the 80′s as a member of the illustrious, John Hughes films-induced “Brat Pack,” he garnered critical acclaim in movies like Less than Zero and Charlie Chaplin. After hitting a rough patch due to drug-addiction, the come-back kid got his groove back with a vengeance, starring in films like Sherlock Holmes, winning a Golden Globe for his effort, Tropic Thunder (Academy Award nominee), and the blockbuster hit Iron Man francise, in which his charisma as Tony Stark is mesmerizing. Speaking of which, RDJ rocked these ultra-cool Ray Ban 3320′s in the IM flick. Choose from four sleek metal finishes. It was a wild ride, but  he’s back and king of the box office.

Heidi Klum in Tom Ford Sunglasses


Heidi Klum has proven time and again that she’s not just another pretty model face. She has literally created a fashion empire that spans every medium. She’s an Emmy nominated host for the mega-popular Lifetime TV show Project Runway (she’s Exec Producer, as well). She’s designed shoes for Birkenstock, jewelry for Mouawad, a clothing line for Jordache, and the Victoria’s Secret lingerie line bearing her nickname “The Body.” She has two fragrances, “Heidi Klum” and “Me” and she designed makeup for Victoria’s Secret aptly named The Heidi Klum Collection. As if all this weren’t enough, she’s married to a rock star (Seal), has four kids, and still finds time to sizzle while taking in some beach volleyball in these Tom Ford shades. These sporty but glam sunglasses come in three color combos: gold/light havana brown, rose gold/black, and gunmetal/dark havana brown. Like a fine wine, HK just gets better with age.

Gwen Stefani in Carrera Sunglasses


Gwen Stefani is always top of mind when it comes to the most stylish women in Hollywood. A SoCal girl straight out of the OC, her surfer chick meets hip hop vibe was a style stand-out back in the early days of her mega-band No Doubt. Then, she went solo and took her style-maven status to whole new levels with the creation of fashion, accessories, and beauty brands Harajuku Lovers and LAMB. Both have grown into ginormous brands with a cult-like following. These white silver palladium Carreras certainly solidify her top fashionista status. The shades come in a wide range of colors to match any outfit or mood. You’ll get Gwen-worthy attention in these babies.

Jennifer Garner in Ralph Lauren Sunglasses

We loved the old Jennifer Garner when she was kicking butt on the small screen–Alias–and the big screen–Elektra. Her natural beauty and rockin’ “hardbody” made her a force in Tinsel Town. But we love her even more now as the kinder and gentler Mrs. Ben Affleck and mother to tots Violet and Seraphina. She even made her Broadway debut playing Roxanne in Cyrano de Bergerac alongside Kevin Kline. She makes a classic style statement in these Ralph Lauren sunglasses with signature gold RL logos on the temples. These down-to-earth-chic shades come in four colors–black, dark havana brown, spotted havana brown, and transparent violet. Whataya expect from the wife of  THE Ben Affleck?
