The Cat's Me-Ow
lle magazine's "duckling-turned-swan" overhaul now well underway, I find myself compelled by a magazine I was accustomed to snoring through, if I bothered at all.
This month brings us some really on-point articles, including, but not limited to: a profile of Rodarte's Laura and Kate Mulleavy, "Dream Weavers"; a behind-the-scenes look at Chanel's blockbuster Resort 2008 collection (as seen on Ms. Lindsay Lohan with Uncle Karl, who wore his trademark Chrome Hearts sunglasses); and a week's wardrobe consisting entirely of High Street finds, styled by Nina Garcia.
But I digress! More to the point, Elle featured loads and loads of wonderful sunglasses throughout the magazine. Love.
I always enjoy the voyeuristic description of what the cover model personally wore to the set (a la Pixie Geldof and Ashley Olsen) and Scarlett Johansson was no exception. I would have predicted black Ray-Ban Wayfarers for ScarJo, but was pleasantly surprised to learn she was sporting the up-and-coming cat-eye trend:
Maybe its just a fun change of pace, but I am loving the Peggy Guggenheim look right now; thank you, John Galliano. Although, to be fair, Luella was on point a full season ahead of the curve.
Ms. Johansson's Tom Ford Anouk sunnies are a perfect choice. They're available in black and tortoise for $300 at Saks.
