Usually, when celebrities come out with a clothing line or fragrance, it’s kind of ridiculous. Does Jennifer Lopez really need all those versions of Glow? But with the news that the Olsen twins are creating a brand-new collection of eyewear for The Row, we’re not exactly shocked. After all, the mini mogul…

Martin Margiela Calls These Sunglasses

We get it, Martin Margiela. You like to think outside of the box, you're a non-conformist (as evidenced by your recent cray-cray couture creation).

Round Sunglasses Are The Next Big Thing We Won’t Be Buying

We'd seen the round glasses trend creeping up slowly for the last couple years. It became especially apparent the circle shades would blow up at some point when Mary-Kate Olsen, always the trendsetter, began wearing John Lennon-style wireframes on a regular basis. And then goggle-like pairs were paraded down the runways of Proenza Schouler, Lanvin,…

Cheney Cruises The Snake River

Did you know Dick Cheney can smile? A picture of the Vice President cracking a smirk while “fly fishing” was posted on sportsshooter.com and it has more hits than Mariah Carey -- about 130,000 as of last night, according to Google. But it isn’t his pearly whites that people are interested in, it’…
