When Eclipse premiered June 30, I knew Style Hunter would be inundated with questions about Bella, Edward and the rest of the Cullen clan’s clothing choices for months to come. But nothing from the film garnered as much as attention as the cat-eye sunglasses Bella wore while visiting her mom in Florida.
I went straight to source and spoke to Eclipse’s costume designer Tish Monaghan, who revealed that these retro shades were actually just a pair of lower-priced knock-offs that Kristen Stewart picked out of 100 different options collected by props master Grant Swain.
To save you the hassle of trolling the streets for our own off-the-sidewalk pair, we’ve handpicked three similar style options that’ll help you copy Bella’s retro look:
- Proenza Schouler’s extended cat eye sunglasses ($290; lagarconne.com)
- Ray-Ban’s “Cats 1000” sunglasses ($170; asos.com)
- Fred Flare’s “Bridget” sunglasses ($11; fredflare.com)
