Get The Look: Chloe Sevigny

Indie film darling Chloe Sevigny stays pretty loyal to her two-tone tortoise and crystal oblong frames. They suit her whether she's dressed down beachy bohemian, or dolled up for the red carpet. Here's how you can achieve her look...

Bevel "Mate" in Blue Zircon / Crystal

Claire Goldsmith "Carters" in Grey on English Summer

Claire Goldsmith "Durban" in Brown Top Hat

Garrett Leight "Westminster" in Grey Fade


The Exhibitions Gallery of Fine Art in Auckland has just opened a show featuring rare images from the life of Marilyn Monroe. 'Marilyn' contains portraits printed straight from negatives without re-touching and from what we've seen they are incredibly beautiful and revealing, which is all the more impressive in these days of obsessive photo editing.

Taken by several photographers, the images span the screen siren's career, from 19 years old to just before her untimely death at the age of 36.

On the One News website you can see the video to get a peek at what's on show until April 5th.

Throwback Thursday: A History of Elton

Having a peek at Elton John's sunglass collection has made us reflect on his some of his colourful looks. Here's a brief journey of Elton through the medium of eyewear...

Mark McNairy x Garrett Leight F/W 2014

Fashion designer Mark McNairy has collaborated with Californian eyewear designer Garrett Leight before (as seen here), and their partnership continues with his new Fall collection shown at New York Fashion Week. McNairy's signature American preppy/street style is complimented by Garrett Leight's similar aesthetic. These new styles aren't available yet, but we hope to get our mitts on them when they are!

Sunglass Nirvana

Feast your eyes on the ultimate sunglass closet! 
Belonging to none other than Sir Elton John. Jealous? Us too.

Well, we wouldn't expect anything less from this guy, would we?

Glasses of the Week: Big Day Out

This gorgeous couple had a great time enjoying the sunshine at Big Day Out festival in January, and took their most important accessory with them to see some Snoop Dogg.

Paul looks sharp in the Oliver Goldsmith "Matador" in Matte Wakame and our very own dispensing optician Kerry wears her Yellows Plus "Sonia" in Tortoiseshell, looking good!
