Bai Ling hangin out at Gafas

Check out Bai Ling hanging out at Gafas doing an interview with the boys from TCHAD magazine. She picked out a sick pair of Eof7 (Entourage of 7). Good choice considering she has been on the hit show Entourage ... what a match. And if you remember The Crow she was in it definitely a fav... look her up she has been in over 50 flicks.

Oversized shades .. Jackie O

Oversized shades have been very popular over the years. Bringin back that vintage look. The most popular being Onassis glasses or "Jackie O's" which are very large sunglasses worn by women. This style of sunglasses is said to mimic the kind most famously worn by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in the 1960s. The glasses continue to be popular with women, and celebrities which help them keep low key from paparazzi. Men are also sporting oversized shades...brought back from the ol school Cazal days. Check out the limited edition Cazal 951 .. http://www.the951.com/

The mighty Aviator

The Aviator ... (also known as "Pilot shades") are a style of sunglasses that were developed by Ray-Ban. They were given their name due to their oblique teardrop shape. The style has been popular since the 1960s, but became even more so in the 1980s following pop culture references and used by celebrities in films like Top Gun, where Val Kilmer and Tom Cruise sported them. As well as Michael Jackson the king of pop .. who did'nt want to be like MJ. If you don't own at least one pair of aviators come by Gafas and we will show you some fantastic aviators...how about Ray-Ban the original, carrera the ol school, Salt gradient polarized, Dita full titanium, Chrome Hearts hand.
