Astro-Beauty: Which Sign Is The Sunglass Diva?

Isabelle Adjani St Tropez

 Crab ladies (a la Isabelle Adjani, above) use sunglasses in much the same way as women of the olden times used their fans – to hide behind & peek out all come-hithery.

Leos use their sunglasses like a limo – you can’t see in but they can see out. They can not – they TRULY cannot – resist a little bit of bling on the things. Diamante. The designers initials. Gold trimmings.

Scorpios wear sunglasses like armour & will not hesitate to wear them indoors.

The champion of Scorp sunglassing would have to be the US Vogue editor Anna Wintour, seen here at some fashion parade.

I had a HUGE pair of sunnies a few years ago that i ADORED wearing as they were like a shield but they made me look like a fuqing fly.

And an ex-mother-in-law urged me into a buying a really blingy pair that i now sense were a reflection of what she thought of me. They were nicked by a junkie wearing a Juicy Couture trackpants outfit, massive dangly long diamante earrings & glittery ultra violet acrylic nails.

My first sunnies were RayBan & in them, i felt impossibly cool. Last time i got sunglasses they were FITTED by a Libran woman at a shop.  I was just browsing but she was suddenly insistent on analyzing my face shape & critiquing the Fly Sunnies i already had. She measured my eyebrows and the gap from my hairline to the top of my cheekbones to deduce the most flattering sunglasses.

I have a Virgo friend that looks so chic in her pair. Expensive Raybans. Dark blue I think. Flatters her creamy skin so well.

I love shades. Blame it on my Scorpio moon. Just bought a new pair, I really couldn’t afford. XD They are black as hell, can’t see in, and I love them. Love, love, love.

i am pro classic styles and cannae stand big bug-eyed paris hilton sunnies. it just seems like i’d be trying to hard… i hate to look like i’m trying. pref understated when it comes to my face (weird for an aries?) happy to go loopier with clothes and shoes, tho rare that i’ll be trendy i haves a thing for colour tho (lib risin?) and will only do warmly tinted lenses, can’t stand the grey/blue tones. i also go for reddish/brown/tortoiseshell frames cos black is no no good for moi. current pair are quality but not flashy brand – with… Read more »

I would love to own the really big sunnies and groove the Hepburn vibe, but I have very high cheekbones, a very small nose, and that combination means that most sunnies sit on my cheeks, or slide way down to the tip of my nose so that I am always peering over the top of them, and lose the scorpy inscrutibility edge – so it makes them worse than useless! However in the last couple of years I have discovered Roc sunnies – good quality, but an acceptable price (its taken me YEARS to spend more than $20 on sunnies…)… Read more »

Black = Loving the night! get outa my way (lol)
D&G = show off time!!!!!

Does anyone remember those ghastly ‘driving’ sunnies from the 70’s/80’s. Huge box like sides, not wrap around, just sides built in..

Yes, and my 76 year old mother still wears them for driving!

Sure do. Kind of like a welding mask. Love how some oldies do not care what it looks like and wear them on over the top of their prescription glasses.

A friend once pointed out the number of old dudes (like his Dad) who’s sunglasses seemed to get bigger and bigger every year! This obviously before the current trend of looking like a bugged-eyed fly deemed tres cool. Must confess I rarely see a pair of white or yellow frames that look good on the wearer – unless you are actually in The Buggles.

spot on Mystic! I can’t leave the house without my sunglasses and wear them until it’s dark. Rain, hail or shine they’re ON. I have several pairs at home just in case anything happens but also because i’m still searching for the perfect pair. CANNOT stand glasses with bling, diamonds, big logos etc. I wear mine for practical reasons, don’t care about the fashion. They have to be polarised, offer 100% UV protection, quality lenses and wrap around the sides a little to cut off light from all directions as my eyes are extremely sensitive to glare. I just bought… Read more »

Mine are massive Christian Diors with the C.D. initials in gold and a sort of bling thing down the side. They are rose-tinted – that is why i wear them. It is not for show i swear. I have a far more trend-centric pair of Pradas but their lenses are tinged gray and dour; I look less vulgar and yet feel like shit.
I suppose this is off topic but i find pics of hot men with sunnies very stimulating. Is that Leo?

Raybans you keep in their case, merely coz they cost a lot to replace & avaitors impossible, unless
they re-release them.
Had black hornrim GA’s that lasted 8 years of daily wear, yes, the mafia style referred to.
Now back to RB’s…a long tradition that pays off.
Not adverse to buying things that ‘fall off the back of a truck’ at 70% discount.
Found a supercool brand called ‘Dakota Smith of USA’……..in original case from the 70’s
whilst visiting local tat shop.
The Sun has a higher squint factor the last 15 years, they make sense.

Oh god, this thread makes me so sad. I had the same pair of Persol sunnies for 14 years (count ’em). They had the most incredible lenses, I called them my hangover sunnies. No matter what the day was like, they tinted everything just that little bit better, calming and soothing and making happy everything I looked at. Moved to the Middle East. On first day at new job, my handbag fell off my desk. Faithful Persols broke neatly at the nose piece into two pieces. I gathered them up and put them in their little silk bag, then shed… Read more »

Lots of Kataka dotted about here and yes me too they have their own language. It’s also the way I wear them on my head too. I recently splurged on a $200+ fashie type sports brand ones & I love them. I even keep them in their sturdy case instead of sitting on them or losing them. Quite proud of myself there.

Anyway, in the NT with bright sun 95% of the year round one NEEDS good/tasteful sunnies.

As a Crab, I have to say that picture of Isabella Adjani with her sun glasses could be me – but I think Crabs don’t so much do ‘a peek and come hither’ with their sun glasses. It’is more about using the sunglasses as a shield – the eyes can give away so much!!

I’m Saggo and wear my sunnies for purely practical reasons EXCEPT in the car when I like to “hide” so they are always on my face when I’m driving during daylight hours… even when others are driving around in overcast conditions/sunrise/sunset with their parking lights on!

I’m Taurean & I CANNOT leave home without sunglasses. It can be about to pour with rain but somehow I can sense glare. My eyes are ultra sensitive to light & it’s my worst nightmare to be out in the sun without them. I do not understand how people can go without. Eep! I know where my glasses are at any minute of the day

I favour big jackie o type frames. Currently heart my lulu guinness glasses.

oh is this really the case with blue eyes? I have pale blue eyes and have always thought this is connected to my incapacity to bear the glare. I have been addicted to sunglasses since i was about 12. I feel blinded without them. But i have never had this connection between eye colour and glare tolerance cofirmed

Years ago, in a spiritual workshop, heard that the sun actually good for stimulating the pineal gland and that we don’t get enough sun.

this pisces likes dark sunnies for hiding. wide enough to protect eyes + skin from bright Aussie UV rays. Polarised for clearer vision thru ocean waters: good to know where rocks and seaweed are and tosee how teuly crystal clear the water is. not a follower of trends and the bling option often clashes with low-key beach life but i suspect it might actually work for me if i tried it.

Cancerian observation confirmed here – yes to hiding but no to looking over the top – I heard that was very rude. If I have to make eye contact I take the sunnies off. Also very particular that the shape works for my face and not fashion, but frames must always be in a stylish colour & design. Always have them fitted by optometrist – so worth the effort. Not into asymmetry when it comes to clothing. Have had prescription lenses in my sunnies for years. Very picky about the quality of the lens material too. Before the quality of… Read more »

OMG, once again Mystic has nailed it. Fossicking in an op-shop in Yarraville a couple of years ago, I found a pair of sunnies (YSL in gold lettering on the sides- gorgeous Jackie O frames). They had prescription lenses in them that were not my script. Took them up to the ol Lady at the counter. Had fingers and toes crossed that she wouldn’t notice that they were Yves Saint Laurent. Bingo!! Got em for $2.00. Took them to my optometrist who put dark Jacqui O lenses in. They are divine!! Wearing them is like being slightly and pleasantly stoned.… Read more »

Brilliant idea. That “whoosh” noise you hear is me rushing off to the charity shop to look for designer shades to do the same with. Except I like sleek, dark, minimalist – Trinity in The Matrix had it right. Except in the book (Neuromancer by William Gibson) the lenses are surgically fitted to her actual eyes. so you never know what she is thinking … perfect. … yes, scorpio, and yes, I wear sunglasses all the time. Adds to the air of mystery doncha know. Also means they cant see where you are looking as Anna Wintour has pointed out.… Read more »

Hmm. I don’t wear them. I occassionally feel the need to buy a cheap pair for some odd reason. Maybe before beach holidays? But i wear them for 10 mins take them off and loose them. I don’t drive so I don’t need them for that reason and I usually am wearing my normal glasses – maybe that’s why?

I am going to go and buy a prescription pair of sunglasses soon though because i’m going skiing and don’t want glasses under goggles to be my only option.

yeah, gem rising and my sunnies are fashion sunnies… but like a taurean I like them to fit securely – nothing more irritating to me than the feeling my sunnies (which I wear pretty much every day of the year) are going to fall off my face.

I wonder if sunglasses fall to Mercury? I know hearing does… which planet rules the eyes and seeing Mystic?

I have Scorpio rising and I do wear my sunglasses all the time. Mine too have prescription lenses and I can see perfectly in them inside or outside. I can’t hide my reactions to situations very well, they are written all over my face, so when I wear sunglasses I feel like I have a bit of protection. If people can’t see my eyes they can’t see what I’m thinking. If I’m not wearing them they are perched on tp of my head ready to pulled down at a moments notice.
