Nice Double-C's, Ladies

his week Chanel's interlocking mother-of-pearl C's were all but ubiquitious.

Courtney Cox made negotiating a squirming (but adorable) toddler look hot with them:

Eva Longoria wore them to wrangle with her toy dog and with Brittany Murphy.

They even made the The New York Times, which saw fit to highlight their presence in their 8/20/06 Travel Section profile of Turkbuku, the St. Tropez of Turkey:

"As house and R & B music pulsated from open-air bars, moneyed couples in Chanel double-C sunglasses and young women in gold bikinis poked into swimwear and jewelry boutiques."

These are, of course, the Chanel 5076 style.
Cost: $300
Color: Brown with Brown Gradient Lenses, Black with Grey-Yellow Gradient Lenses, White with Grey Gradient Lenses, Brown Tortoise with Brown/Green Lenses
Retailer: sunglassesitaly.com

PS - A quick Google search also revealed a very intelligent-looking Paris Hilton to be a fan. This is not, mind you, to be construed as an endorsement for the trucker hat.
