5 Famous People Who Rocked the Sunglasses before You

The iconic Sunglasses have certainly been a fixture on the Hollywood red carpet and a favorite style of celebrities for a long time. The classic style and simple design of these sunglasses have contributed to their long-running popularity, and now they are probably more popular than ever. As with all fashion trends, however, their trendiness and popularity can rise and fall with the cultural tides.

These icons of style have kept sunglasses sunglasses at the forefront of the eyewear zeitgeist for as long as we can remember, and are probably the reason the popular style is still so incredibly cool.

No matter how hard you try, you're probably never going to be as cool as these people, nor as rich, nor as awesome. But don't let that stop you from trying. Emulating your favorite style maven by wearing sunglasses sunglasses can be a move that puts you on the fashion map, and can elevate your game to the next level. Check the list below to be reminded that, even though you do look good, you'll still never look as good, or more importantly is as cool as them:


Dan Ackroyd/John Belushi (Jake and Elwood Blues):

Don't even try. Even if you manage to find yourself driving a former cop car through a shopping mall during an epic chase scene, you just won't ever be able to be these guys. You should still try and get the band back together, though. That would be awesome.


John F. Kennedy:

Not much to say, really. President of the United States when it was cool to be the President of the United States. This guy was rocking the sunglasses sunglasses out at the Cape way before you and your dorky friends were.


Bob Dylan:

Again, you don't have a chance. You should hope that a few atom's worth of this man's coolness might drip into your beggars cup of pathetic imitation. You could sing "All Along the Watchtower" while curing cancer and saving the whales and you'd still not come close to his cool zone. A pioneer of the sunglasses sunglasses and rock & roll.


Audrey Hepburn:

Nope. You and your sorority sisters do not remind me one bit of the Breakfast at Tiffany's icon who might be the most famous and beautiful woman to rock the sunglasses sunglasses. Ever. And she did it before it was cool. And she probably never once said "OMG', or 'LOL'. She's a legend. You can't compare yourself to a legend, girls.

It might be disheartening to know that your pathetic attempts to cop the style of these iconic figures will never bring you fame and fortune. But don't let that get in the way of actually wearing your sunglasses sunglasses, because, actually, you look awesome. Just not as awesome as the really awesome people above. But you do look silly in your girlfriend's jeans. So stop that. Keep the sunglasses prescription sunglasses, lose the skinny jeans, and you're all set!
