Throwbacktion: Jeremy Scott X Linda Farrow

On one of my go-to photo Tumblrs, Suicide Blonde, I stumbled upon this Mario Testino shot for the March 2008 UK Vogue. Natalia Vodianova is pictured wearing the outlandish flip-up Jeremy Scott X Linda Farrow "Oh Mickey" sunglasses. Though Natalia is striking, SB rightly notes that the Mickeys real claim to fame is their appearance in the music videos for "Paparazzi" (on Lady Gaga) and "Telephone" (on Beyonce).

The Mickey's are currently sold out on both the Opening Ceremony and Linda Farrow websites -- an impressive feat given their retail price of $460. Knockoffs abound on ebay, however, for those determined to get the look (or to really nail their Gaga Halloween costume).
