Some people just go through life with rose-coloured glasses on, and such is the case for British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Dressed in gym attired with her hair pulled back into an ukempt ponytail, she looked absolutely radiant in the Los Angeles sunshine wearing a pair of rose-coloured aviators the other day. Shop a wide array of rosie sunnies here and let me know which pair makes your heart pitter patter.
Coloured sunnies are just another way to express your style. Yes, they help protect your eyes from sun and pollution, but they are also a bold accessory that aren't for the fashion feint-hearted. Shop all kinds of shapes and styles below and let me know if you would rock a pair of red-hot sunglasses like the ones Rita Ora wore earlier this week in London!
Georgia May Jagger has been revealed as Sunglass Hut's new face and is set to appear in the retailer's ads from September. The British model's first campaign as brand ambassador, which was shot by Daniel Jackson in a North London studio last month, shows Georgia in full on glam mode with red lips and back-combed hair posing in sunglasses by Tiffany & Co., Versace and Vogue Eyewear. It's the latest high profile role for Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall's daughter, who is also the face of Hudson Jeans and was recently named the new face of Madonna’s Material Girl line. Chief executive officer Fabio D’Angelantonio told WWD:
"With her history and her background, but also her very cool, simple and playful relationship with fashion, we believed [Jagger] could be perfect [for Sunglass Hut]. We talked to her about the project and we got her extremely excited about the category, about the Sunglass Hut brand, and we decided to go ahead with this partnership."
Georgia herself said: "I think everyone knows Sunglass Hut — they’re in every airport. I’m always buying new Ray-Bans." The model's current favourite shades are Persol and Ray-Ban's "younger styles" in bright colours. The Brit might even get behind the lens too, as she’s just completed a photography course at the London College of Communication. D’Angelantonio added: "We’re investigating how [Jagger’s] passion for photography can come alive [for the brand]." What do you think of Georgia's latest role?

Back in the 80s I had a pair of sweet shiny Oakley sunnies that had a fluorescent yellow frame and mirrored lenses. I used to wear them skiing with my dayglo snow suit and man did I look fierce. However, twenty (plus) years later I wouldn't dream of sporting them on the street like Paula Abdul did with these high shine aviators on Wednesday in Los Angeles. Would you wear mirror lensed sunglasses now?
It's the height of Summer, so instead of getting distracted by the transition pieces hitting stores right now for Autumn/Winter, focus on this beautiful weather we've been having in the UK.

Here are a few of my favourite fashion and beauty items for August!
Fearne Cotton looks adorable walking around London with her cropped blond bob and a tartan cape; however, what I most love about her style is the way she's wearing a chic pair of 50s style sunglasses. The colour and shape complement her hair and bone structure and somehow look more modern than retro. I've also spotted January Jones in a pair of sheer topaz glasses and think they look equally stylish on her. Browse these '50s-style sunnies below, and let me know if you're into this trend.
