Lolita Sunglasses

In Australia, this summer, one fashion mini-trend is the return of the heart shaped sun glasses made famous by the posters for the 1958 film version of Lolita.

The heartshaped sunglasses became an American icon when the film was released, but the thing of it was, she never wore them in the film.  Photographer Bert Stern

took still shots to be used on the movie posters and on an impulse he bought a pair of heartshaped sunglasses and took the shot after the film had been completed, so you never see the actress, Sue Lyon, wearing them in the film.

Will Fashionistas take a hint from Australia and wear them when summer comes to the Northern Hemisphere? 

Stay tuned . . .
