We love Emma Roberts. We love Nanette Lepore. So what happens when two of our favorite people combine? Just take a look at the sketch of these amazing sunglasses above, and you’ll see that it’s a total match made in creative heaven (seriously, Cupid would be jealous he didn’t think of it first!). Yep, Nanette Lepore- known and beloved for flirty, girly dresses- has just crafted her first style of sunglasses inspired by none other than Emma herself. The pair of cat-eye frames is the latest addition to the VOGUE Eyewear Designer Series, and is inspired by retro Twenties glamour with a modern twist. As Nanette tells WWD of her 21-year-old actress muse, “She’s chic, youthful and confident in her style.” Considering Emma’s ability to switch from rocker to Old Hollywood to uber-trendy at the drop of a hat, who’s going to argue with that?
Clearly the love is mutual. Emma tweeted that she’s “so honored!!!” about the shades that she’s “#inlove” with the sketch. We totally agree, and have already started plotting our strategy for snagging one of the $130 limited-edition “Emma” frames ourselves (only 1,200 were made total). They hit Sunglass Hut stores and sunglasshut.com in October, so in the meantime, better start planning your fall wardrobe accordingly.
