Star Style on Trial: Mary-Kate Oslen’s Chanel sunglasses


Mary-Kate Olsen has been taking a bit of flack around the blogosphere for these Chanel sunglasses (which have also found a friend in Nicole Ritchie) which we’ve seen described as "fug", "ridiculous" and "munchkin-like" and well as some rather more pleasant terms such as "cute" and "fabulous".

The Fashion Police make no secret of the fact that we love the Olsen twin’s style – most of the time – and apart from the fact that M-K is wearing these indoors at the Giambattista Valli’s Fall ’08 show (we reckon the "wearing sunglasses in the front row of a fashion show" thing is becoming a bit of a cliché – thanks, Anna Wintour!) – we’re liking these rather a lot. And at least they’re better than the last pair of Chanel sunglasses we spotted Mary-Kate in!

What’s your verdict? Fashion crime or innocent of all charges?

    My verdict is innocent of all charges. The Olsen twins can do no wrong as far as I’m concerned. They push the style envelope every time and I love their uniqueness.

    Hey Victor,

    They’re the Chanel 5018 Half Tint Glasses.

    These glasses are awesome. Even as a guy, I think they’re great! I just bought my girlfriend a pair for Valentine’s day… I hope she’ll love them!

    I read about them here originally:

    Which is how I found the model #

    And I came across this site through Google images.

    Hope I helped…
