Successful Guess and Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio shows up regularly on “most beautiful women” lists, including the annual AskMen Top 99 Most Desirable Women. In addition to appearing on many magazine covers, Ambrosio has also showed up in movies like Casino Royale and TV shows like How I Met Your Mother and Entourage.
This Brazilian beauty started modeling in her teens, appearing on covers of the Brazilian versions of Elle and Marie Claire, and Harper’s Bazaar. Soon after, she was walking the runways of New York and Paris for Alberta Ferretti and Christian Lacroix. Her personal style is casual and laid back, and she’s often photographed in well-worn jeans that she manages to make look perfect with the addition of great shoes and accessories, including sunglasses. Here are 4 of Ambrosio’s best sunglasses moments.
It’s a rule of thumb among the stylish that if you don’t know which sunglasses to wear with an outfit, you can put on a pair of classic Wayfarers and it will work. And honestly, you won’t find any sunglasses that do a better job of protecting your eyes from ultraviolet rays and glare.
2. Cat-Eye Sunglasses
The cat-eye shape is perfect for adding a hint of retro chic to your outfit. Oscar de la Renta makes a perfect cat-eye frame for 2013, with lilac lenses and cheetah print detailing on the sides. If you’re planning on wearing cat-eye shades, keep other accessories low key, because your sunglasses will take center stage.
Aviators with mirrored lenses are extremely popular for spring and summer 2013. These have a silver frame and silver-mirrored lenses. You won’t find anything better for jeans or shorts, and you can count on this timeless style to be on-trend for many seasons to come.
4. Big Movie Star Sunglasses
Large, square frames with gradient lenses are perennially popular because they always look cool and stylish. DKNY makes a terrific version of this look with always-perfect Havana frames and brown gradient lenses that sugar-coat and flatter the area around your eyes. Put on a pair of these the morning after a big night out and no one will be the wiser.
With her own style, Alessandra Ambrosio shows that sunglasses are the perfect finishing touch to any outfit, and that you shouldn’t be afraid to experiment with shape and color when it comes to your summer shades.
