The slightly larger, squared-off wayfarer frame is all the rage in sunglasses, having made widespread appearances at fashion week last month. And, of course, Gwen is right there in the moment. –rpuccia

Denise seemed to be the consummate supportive ex-wife this past Monday afternoon as she, the kids and Charlie Sheen took a jaunt out in NYC to the Natural History Museum. Little did she know–drama was lurking around the corner for good ole’ Charlie–again!

Jeez. He was taken to the hospital for psychiatric evaluation and has since been released.

Here she seems to be enjoying less stressful times and looking gorgeous in these sleek Tom Ford sunglasses, available in six frame hues. Stay strong, girlfriend! –rpuccia

You never would have guessed it from looking at him these days, but Orlando Brown was quite the child actor. First seen as one of Daymon Wayans’ JROTC kids in Major Payne, he soon led his voice talents to Waynehead, a Saturday morning cartoon created by Wayans that aired on the WB. A guest appearance on Sister, Sister came next, followed by a 3-season run on Family Matters.
Orlando also appeared on the Disney Channel for years— who wouldda thought this guy had something in common with Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears?! Lizzie Maguire, The Proud Family, Fillmore!, That’s So Raven and Phil of the Future can all be found on his resume. He even performed on several Disney Channel soundtracks and released his own album in 1996.
No longer a child, but he’s definitely trying hard to look a star with these oversized, tattoo-inspired Ed Hardy sunglasses. They’re a bit heavy on the bling-bling and slightly feminine for a man, but somehow he pulls em off.

Charlize has proven time again that she’s more than just a pretty face. She received critical acclaim and an Academy Award for her portrayal of serial killer Aileen Wuornos in the film Monster, where she went under truck-loads of makeup to turn her pure gorgeous’ness into gastly. She received another Academy Award nomination for her role in the film North Country as a single mother who works the iron mines of Northern Minnesota and fights against the sexual harrassment that she and her other female counterparts are subjected to. And we just loved her as Stella, the lock-pickin’ badass in The Italian Job opposite Mark Wahlberg. Hailing from South Africa and of German, French and Dutch descent, this beauty also flaunts it as the face of Dior’s J’Adore perfume.

Mariah Carey’s been looking a bit rounder than usual during recent public performances, but she still refuses to confirm or deny the preggo rumors that have been swirling around for the past few months. Her much younger hubby Nick Cannon—Mimi’s 40 and Nick’s 29—has been keeping his lips zipped, too.
Her weight has fluctuated a few times over the years, but it’s pretty strange for a diva that loves to glam it up like there’s no tomorrow to be spotted in baggy T-shirts. Even so, she’s looking hot in these Salvatore Ferragamo sunglasses. The rims go perfectly with her earrings, don’tcha think?

Katy Perry tied the knot with Russell Brand in Northern India over the weekend in a traditional Hindu ceremony. She wowed in a dove grey Elie Saab haute couture gown. She even accessorized with a traditional Indian bridal nose ring, known as a nath, which is worn by brides on their wedding day until the groom removes it on the wedding night. Good thing the festivities are over–while dishing with MTV about her engagement, Katy revealed that her fiance was “a total bridezilla.” She quipped, “He’s like a freak, man… always, like, buying bride magazines.” Seems rather unlikely of the Russell-man, doesn’t it? The Teenage Dream singer and British comic are currently honeymooning in the Maldives. Here she rocks a pair of gorgeous Prada cat’s eye shades–available in five frame colors–perfectly complimented by an adorable fedora and silver-metallic off-the-shoulder sweater. It’s safe to say, this California Gurl nabbed her man. –rpuccia

After spending a few years in the modeling biz, she decided to pursue acting and took on a few bit parts on both the big and small screens. Her career flew off the handle, though, thanks to her role in the 1990 film Total Recall with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Now in her fifties and the mother of three adopted children, Sharon lives in Beverly Hills, California—no wonder she wears such stylish shades. These Christian Dior sunglasses are incredibly flattering and available in four color combos.
