Heart shaped sunglasses are extremely popular today and we see many celebrities that wear heart shaped sunglasses even now.
However, they are not a new addition to fashion. They have been around for decades. In the seventies both George Harrison and Marianne Faithfull would wear them.
They started to become more fashionable in 1997 after the Stanley Kubrick poster was released for his film 'Lolita.' The sunglasses then ended up by default being called 'Lolita Sunglasses.'
The film depicts a provocative teenager and her step father who becomes obsessed by her, to the point where he is driven mad. She becomes his 'forbidden fruit' (so to speak.)
The seem to be an emblem of sexuality, passion and even innocence -due to their child like look and are seen as a timeless retro fashion piece. They tend to be worn by trend setting artists- such as Harry Styles and Katy Perry.
The heart shaped eye wear style can also be seen by festival goers all over the world that like to inject a bit of fun into their outfits.
Harry Styles Heart Sunglasses Watermelon Sugar
In Harry Styles' Watermelon Sugar video, he is sporting a red pair of heart shaped sunglasses. The theme of the video is 1970's and the clothing has vibes of George Harrison and Mick Jagger- who Harry gets compared to a lot, and his clothing styles seem to reflect.
His stylist is reported to have sourced these from the National theatre costume hire department and are authentically vintage. They certainly have made a 'stir' on twitter, as many people have been talking about them.
Elton John heart shaped sunglasses
Elton John is the absolute queen of outlandish clothing. Like Liberace and many stars of even today- have an alter ego and have a persona on stage that is wild and exciting. Elton John has been snapped wearing these many times. He tends to wear heart shaped sunglasses with red lenses.
Taron Egerton in the Rocket Man, who plays Elton John- also wears these sunglasses with red lenses.
Katy Perry Heart Shaped Sunglasses
In Katy Perry's 'This is how we do' music video, she is also seen with red heart shaped sunglasses and similar to Harry Styles is sporting a slice of watermelon. Coincidence or not? I actually think not. As I mentioned earlier, the fruit symbolises 'forbidden fruit-' and cross references the film Lolita somewhat.
