Celebs Go for White

White sunglasses are the summer trend.

It’s a trick any much-paparazzied actress knows: Throwing on a pair of oversize dark shades provides protection from the camera flashes or even just discreet cover for a brutal hangover. But bright white-rimmed ones? Not so much. This summer, stars like Drew Barrymore, Kate Moss and Kirsten Dunst have been sporting all manner of eye-catching light frames whose style statements range from full-on Eighties to just plain goofy. Moss mixed retro-style, round peepers with a boho coin necklace for a hippie-inspired look, while Samantha Ronson went another route, wearing her thick rectangular pair with a graphic T-shirt (and her best accessory, Lindsay Lohan). Full-on pregnancy didn’t stop Gwen Stefani from donning a perfectly coordinated black-and-white outfit, topped off with an aviator version. Kate Hudson and Kelly Osbourne provided more quixotic takes on the trend. The former seemed practically ski-slope bound in her goggle-size, partially rimmed sunglasses, while Osbourne, no shrinking violet, channeled Lolita with flirty heart-shaped specs. The only question for the trendsetters: Will they wear white after Labor Day?
