At the end of the month The Voice will be back on BBC One for a second series. After much speculation it looks as though all original judges will be returning. Have you spotted Will.i.am’s fab glasses in the trailer? He wears some hot Aviator sunglasses and some square glasses that look very similar to the Black Eyewear ‘Cannonball‘!

Last weekend saw the broadcast of BBC remake of classic Alfred Hitchcock film The Lady Vanishes. By all accounts this version follows the original 1936 novel by Ethel Lina White, The Wheel Spins, more closely; however, it is no Hitchcock and much of the humour of the 1938 film was lost. There were wonderful vintage glasses throughout.
ITV’s series Mr Selfridge has been embraced in a way that The Paradise (on BBC1 Autumn 2012) was not. Perhaps it is because Mr Selfridge is the real-life story of the founder and visionary behind the nation’s greatest department store! The flamboyance and drama (ladies) surrounding the American businessman make the story compelling. The real Harry Gordon Selfridge wore pince-nez glasses popular in the early 1900s while Jeremy Piven, the actor who plays Harry Gordon Selfridge, wears the popular models of today.
That’s right Sid Owen (of Eastenders fame) is one of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing contestants. He was recently spotted on It Takes Two, with his professional dancing partner Ola Jordan, wearing classic wayfarer style glasses very similar to Black Eyewear Max.
Anne Robinson’s glasses are part of her persona. She peers out of them, down at us, in an imperious manner and this is what we love about her. Her glasses aren’t always the best shape for her face but they suit her personality. She certainly favours colour and her glasses often match her hair, a lovely marmalade colour. If you’re a fan we have just the frames for you!
