Wherever there is glitz and glamour, you’ll also find Silhouette – especially on the faces of stars. Again and again, they choose to don the rimless, ultra light sunglasses made in Austria.
The list of prominent Silhouette fans is long. And that list even became a bit longer at Cannes Film Festival in May.
Stars were spotted proudly presenting their favourite shades, used to protect their eyes from more than just the storms of camera flashes.
One star who has been familiar with Silhouette for several years now and allows herself to be seen wearing various models is Jane Fonda. The two-time-Oscar-winning Hollywood actress owns both prescription eyewear from Silhouette tinted in various colours as well as sunglasses – as she demonstrated during a relaxed moment at Cannes. Jane Fonda wears a Titan Minimal Art Model 8609 from Silhouette.
A whole series of stars (such as Angelina Jolie, Uma Thurman and Milla Jovovich) were spotted at Cannes wearing Silhouette sunglasses, and several even allowed themselves to be photographed – such as Kiera Chaplin, model/actress and granddaughter of Charlie Chaplin, who chose the Dreamwings Model 8113.
Julie Judd, French actress of English roots, and the Belgian actress Déborah Francois, who performed in the production L’Enfant, which won the 2005 Golden Palm, grabbed a pair of Silhouette sunglasses. Julie Judd and Deborah Francois chose Dreamwings Model 8113.
The French actress Bérénice Bejo, born in Buenos Aires, has an eye for classics and chose – like many starts before her – a pair of pilot sunglasses, Model 8625.
