Posted by Aubrey Tam on

Yea I got you, spending days and nights Netflix-ing during lockdown, and had run out of movie ideas, right?

In case you need some fresh inspirations on your next movies as well as next purchase, here are 3 top moments in movies featuring classic sunglasses looks, pop some popcorn and check them out!


Gene Tierney in “Leave Her to Heaven” (1945) 

Who says new movies wins it all? A scene in the 1945-movie “Leave Her to Heaven”, when Gene Tierney elegantly rows on a boat along the Hudson after murdering is thrilling yet notorious. Gene portrayed the role of the psychotic Ellen Berent at her very best, driving audiences into the swirl of the actress’ insanity. Her red diamond-shaped sunglasses, which contrasts to her purely white padded-shouldered coat, is the perfect feminine addition to her outfit, symbolizing mystery and darkness within the beauty.


Peppertint’s Olive collection is a tribute to the movie – matching diamond-shaped frames with bold-color glasses - one can simple style it with a vintage look and the 40’s glamour is in you.


Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961)

Talking about classy dating outfit, one could never miss out the shades worn by Miss Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany's". Rumor has it that the casting isn’t easy at all – the author intended to cast Marilyn Monroe, but her coach firmly rejected her to play “a lady of the evening”. It was then by chance meeting Audrey, who seemed perfectly right for their heroine, bringing Holly Golightly to life. She matches a sheath dress with a square-shaped sunglasses in black and a glamorous wool hat, strolling along the 57th Street in NYC, which eventually becomes an iconic movie scene in history.


Our Magpies also took the elements of such affection into the design, making it simple yet elegant. The design can add contour to your jawlines, making a smaller face in appearance.


Susan Sarandon in “Thelma & Louise” (1991)

While craving for our next weekend vacation, explore Arkansas with Thelma and Louise via the 1991-movie! The 2 actresses, Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis, rocked different styles in the story so well - from lady-like, floral dress at the beginning to chic, vest-and-jeans boyish looks. One of the remarkable scenes comes to the selfie scene, when Susan wore a red cat-eye sunnies, as a symbol of feminism and rebellion.

Looking for some badass red sunglasses too? Beverly from Peppertint could be a good option for you - its edgy frame strengthens your face contour and shows your womanly side.
