Aviators are totally back in style, as are the oversized 70's look I think. It is so true what they say: Everything old is new again!

My faves (though there's no way I could pull them off) are Zeenat Aman's hippy collection (so cool!). The ones I would categorize in the "What were they thinking?!!!" category are Rekha's wacky ones from Khoon Bhari Maang, especially the second ones! Who would EVER wear those! lol!!!

Great fun post!!!!!! Keep them coming!

dustedoff said...

Ah, good post! :-) Even if Bollywood did some really whacky interiors and some weird clothes, at least they managed to get the sun glasses right, most of the time.

I think I like aviators best - especially Kabir Bedi's! BTW, here's another for your collection:

I don't much care for all that chest hair, but Vinod Khanna gets my vote!

bollywooddeewana said...

@ Shell Thanks so much, indeed i knew Rekha's ones from Khoon Bhari Maang are sure to raise some eyebrows but i'll forgive her as most of her fashion in that movie were edgy

@ Dusted off Thanks a lot, Kabir does indeed look fantastic in the aviators if i could have any apart from Rishi's it would be his, Vinod looks great as well, he's a far cry from his handsome self in his younger days but he still looks good

Nicki said...

This is such a cute post. I agree that these sunglasses are still cool in modern times.

My faves are Shammi and Sanjeev's.

bollywooddeewana said...

They are aren't they Nicki, i'd gladly wear lots of them and the funny thing is that similar styles to this especially the ones made by the top design houses costs quite a lot, Old is always gold (well in some cases anyway)

Rum said...

YAAAY i love this post, I watched Hare Rama Hare Krishna and i searched all of Vancouver to find all the sunglasses zeenat wore too. My favorite glasses were the crazy ones i bought which were almost the same as the ones Ajit wore in Yaadon Ki Baraat!

Daddy's said...

Nice! Great photos... my faves are Shammi, Rajesh and Sanjeev. Looking forward to more. I love sunglasses and the way they seem to give you instant attitude and sometimes even a faint air of mystery.

Amodini said...

What a fun post ! And you actually have a b&w one of Shobha Khote - wow !

bollywooddeewana said...

Thanks Daddy's girl I agree with you i feel ths same way in them, they give you an attitude and indeeda faint air of mystery perfect also for when you don't want to make eye contact with anyone

@ Amodini Thanks, i always keep my eyes out when watching movies for sunglasses and while watching Choti Bahen when i saw Shobha Khote wearing one i knew i had to have her screencap

bollywooddeewana said...

Thanks Rum i saw Yaadon Ki Barat long ago before i started blogging otherwise, i would have had Ajit in his fly shades amongst these lot

Vintage sunglasses and that too pink ones of Rekha, please I think very few girls would like a pink china sunglasses. I think a brown shade is always acceptable and some other shades are cool. You want to wear cool shades not these ones.

bollywooddeewana said...

@ Alex it tottally depends on personal tastes, i myself like a bit of colour every now and then, Thanks for stopping by
