Cate Blanchett is the Face of Silhouette's Icon for an Icon Campaign

Silhouette, the iconic eyewear brand renowned for its premium lightweight eyewear, proudly announces style icon Cate Blanchett as the face of its ICON FOR AN ICON campaign. Shot by the legendary Peter Lindbergh on location in Hollywood, this campaign showcases Blanchett in Silhouette's rimless TITAN MINIMAL ART glasses and sunglasses, bringing together two uniquely purist and effortlessly stylish forces.

Blanchett — celebrated for her simply chic, functional and timeless aesthetic — embodies Silhouette's qualities of subtlety, elegance and sophistication, making her a natural choice for the brand. Says Arnold Schmied, Co-owner of Silhouette International, "We greatly admire Cate's authenticity, and that's what we've aimed to capture in this shoot. The rimless aesthetic of TITAN MINIMAL ART allows her to shine through, without distraction or obstruction, so you are able to see her as she really is."

Says Lindbergh: "Cate is always herself, and that comes through in the pictures. She is such a genuine person and great to photograph."


ONTD, what type of glasses do you like?

oooo i'd be curious to know whats their product code?

I used to only wear glasses from L.A. Eyeworks, they are the bestttttt.

But then I moved and my dog ate my last pair. Now I have a nice pair from a company called Eyefunc.

A fashion post or an OMG THE WOODY ALLEN SYMPATHIZER post, who knows.

But because I don't feel like walking around with glasses without needing them I have too many pairs of sun glasses. And I'm waiting for my father to drop his eighties Ray Ban Pilot in my grabby hands.

let's pray it goes to fashion.

I love these, but I think my head's too straight/angular for it. For shame.

Let's make it a glasses post!

We can't waste all our energies on Cate after ScarJo's recent mind blowing stupidity and ignorance. We gotta save it up for the next ScarJo post.

I'm hoping for the former, tbh.
zoaster_toaster 18th-Mar-2014 09:23 pm (UTC)
I vote fashion, if only to avoid wank.
xtinkerbellax 18th-Mar-2014 09:27 pm (UTC)
Yea, I have a sunglasses problem, I should probably try to sell some of my older ones I don't wear anymore.
guavapussy 18th-Mar-2014 09:09 pm (UTC)

Get it done ASAP, my vision went funny over the course of a weekend and was told I needed glasses.

i got these also! they are my weekend glasses- they feel too plastic-y for work, but i love to wear them with minimal makeup when it's warmer outside. spring glasses!

I will forever be devastated that although I've got an oval face (which is meant to work with every frame), cat eye glasses look goofy as fuq on me.
Also, I think a lot of men who are basic can put on the right frames and suddenly catapult into a new level of attractiveness.

Forgot to say, I currently wear Warby Parker's Colton in black but am forever in the market for new glasses.

Men and nice, good-fitting glasses are fucking kryptonite for me. I keep asking bf to wear his glasses more often, but contacts are easier.
helethmiel 18th-Mar-2014 09:32 pm (UTC)
Ugh, same here. If they're intelligent too I just can't handle it.
doubtmars 18th-Mar-2014 10:58 pm (UTC)
Did you try on the Holcomb from WP? It's kind of cat eye-ish.
sky3205 18th-Mar-2014 11:12 pm (UTC)
helloooooo, are you me?? I love cat eye sunglasses but I look like an idiot. I FINALLY found ones that look okay-ish and I had to buy them because they were cat eye (and were on sale for 30€, lmao)
dtayl 18th-Mar-2014 09:14 pm (UTC)
I think I have like 8 pairs of clear glasses and 2 pairs of prescription sunglasses. Then all the sunglasses I have that are just cheapies without the vision benefits.

I used to work at an eyeglass place and I kind of balled out for a while there.

I want Will Graham's glasses from Hannibal.

I wear purple glasses by some company called Versus. I love them.
aria_grace 18th-Mar-2014 09:17 pm (UTC)
Anyone who lives in LA, you MUST check out L.A. Eyeworks for glasses. They do the best work and have a ton of unique frames. I miss getting my glasses there sooo much.

isntdaveone 18th-Mar-2014 09:19 pm (UTC)
do you work there?
aria_grace 18th-Mar-2014 09:21 pm (UTC)
Nope. I just bought all my glasses there for years and miss those glasses. They are so unique.
shangman 18th-Mar-2014 09:26 pm (UTC)



so many amazing wacky glasses i would spend all my money there

having several pairs of glasses and being able to match with outfits is the dream man
live_young 18th-Mar-2014 09:17 pm (UTC)
oh, i have the same glasses as in that ad with cate blanchett. and i love them. it's already my second pair of Silhouettes.
icangoforthat 18th-Mar-2014 09:18 pm (UTC)
I still have the same glasses I got in 9th grade. I went to the costco optometrist and I got a new prescription like 2 years but I lost the prescriptions.

Anyway I have basic square eyeglasses from gucci. I want new ones though. I've seen some really nice vintage paul smith frames that i want.

i love my glasses. i switch between two pairs. i have a very monochrome, minimalistic dark even, style but when it comes to glasses idgaf. I mainly wear these:

(granted i don't look like the model, but we do have the same hair color~)

and also these, i used to wear them a lot a few years ago

i also have the more exaggerated sunglasses versions of both pairs (although the second pair is very different)

aria_grace 18th-Mar-2014 09:22 pm (UTC)
ohhh that top pair is gorgeous. What kind are they/where'd you get them?
mistress_f 18th-Mar-2014 09:23 pm (UTC)
they're miu miu, from the spring 2013 collection (but still on sale, from what i've seen). it's a good thing the owner of the eyewear store i go to is a friend, cause i pay everything waaaay less than actual retail price. i don't know if there's a name for the shape, they're kinda butterfly shaped? idk
shangman 18th-Mar-2014 09:23 pm (UTC)
those top ones are awesome
therearewords 18th-Mar-2014 09:28 pm (UTC)
Oh I like the first pair a lot.
doubtmars 18th-Mar-2014 11:00 pm (UTC)
Putting the first pair on my wishlist.
