Faux Pas?

s nearly every blog on the planet has reported, FlashyShades included [See: Paris Fashion Week: Chanel Spring/Summer 2007], Katie Holmes and Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham have been cruising around the City of Light, (emaciated) arm in (emaciated) arm.

After posting a photograph of their appearance at Friday's Chanel runway show, I continued to surf the world wide web to identify which shades Ms. Holmes wore.

Who knew her sunglassess would be so easily identifiable? My love for the internet grows stronger with each passing day.

Ms. Holmes is wearing the D & G 3003 model:
Cost: $117 - $138
Colors: Striated Blue, Dark Havana, Black (as seen here)
Retailer: Otticanet.com

In the words of my roommate, "They are so dark and pretty. I sweat them."

Pretty, yes. But D & G? To the Chanel show? What would Karl say?

[Ms. Beckham, a sunglasses lover and designer, is often very difficult to pin down. She often wears shades of her own design -- look for the star logo -- which are not available online and have had only two very limited UK-based offerings. Here, her razor-sharp bob covered any logo or tell-tale markings.]
