Cat eye glasses Facts :
Cat eye glasses (sometimes called “cat eyes” or “cat glasses”) are a shape of eyewear. The form is closely related to the browline style, differentiated by having an upsweep at the outer edges where the temples or arms join the frame front. They were mainly popular in the 1950s and 1960s among women and are often associated with the Beehive hairstyle and other looks of the period. They preceded the large bug-eye glasses of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. Notable wearers of cat eye glasses include: Audrey Hepburn, Barry Humphries as Dame Edna Everage, Jane Jacobs, Amy Lamé, Lisa Loeb, Dinah Manoff, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Mary Whitehouse, and Barbara Windsor.
Cat eye glasses first became popular in the 1950s with their feline inspired style. A huge contrast to the frames that had been in fashion previously, cat eye glasses marked a new era of chic style for women. The glasses were originally created to be worn only with optical lenses, but it was the hugely famous actress Audrey Hepburn that kicked off the trend for cat eye sunglasses after her starring role in 1961 hit film Breakfast at Tiffanys.
Hepburn’s character Holly Golightly was seen several times in a pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses called the Manhattans by Oliver Goldsmith. This would be the start of something big for cat eye glasses. Previous to Breakfast at Tiffanys, winged out glasses had been worn by Hollywood starlets such as Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor, but throughout the 60s the style was more accessible to a larger amount of women through the addition of tinted lenses.
This style of glasses has also been associated with some fictional characters too, such as 1978 musical film Grease’s Frenchy and Barry Humphries as his flamboyant character Dame Edna Everidge, who first took a liking to cat eye specs in the early 1960s.
The original cat eye glasses of the 50s and 60s were exaggerated in shape and often had small lenses that were upturned towards the outside of the face. This style of frame has been through peaks and dips in popularity since withstanding the popularity of round frames, aviator style frames and bug eye glasses in the 70s.
Cat eye glasses, and especially sunglasses, today have larger rounder lenses that suit a variety of face shapes and have large but gentle winging out of the frames. In recent years we’ve seen the feline frames gracing the faces of stars such as Jessica Alba, Olivia Palermo, Dita Von Teese, Nicole Richie, Katy Perry and Zoe Saldana, to name just a few.
