The prettiest sunglasses we’ve seen on the Venice 78 red carpet

When it comes to “having more charisma and symptomatic mystery,” as Battiato sang, sunglasses are one of the most important accessories for men. Celebrities know it well, but so do ordinary mortals. You just need to put on a few to feel a little star. And so it goes without saying that the stars, the real ones, can no longer do without them, especially when it comes to marveling with special effects on board the water taxi when arriving at the most famous landing stage in the world: the one that leads straight to the Venice Film Festival.

Particularly appreciated Ben Affleck who, arrived in company of J.Lo to present the film The lost duel with the friend of all time Matt damon (protagonist of the cover of GQ Ottobre), he chose a look total black from the head, in fact, from the glasses to the feet. The American actor combined his informal outfit (polo shirt and dark jeans) with black round sunglasses with silver profiles and a modern design from the Carrera brand. He also put darkness for Can Yaman, the Turkish star, “beautiful and impossible and with a Middle Eastern flavor”, to also quote Gianna Nannini. For him Aviator model sunglasses, among the most beloved since Tom Cruise in Top Gun and very trendy in 2021. Luca Zingaretti arrives at Lido, on the other hand, wearing a pair of dark square glasses from Ermenegildo Zegna Eyewear, while Alessandro Borghi combines a Gucci vest and loafers with a rounder and smaller frame, with brown tinted lenses and a retro vibe. Not only on arrival, the sunglasses also play their part on the red carpet: the coolest of all events, Timothée Chalamet wears (those of) Prada and shows off a black model like a real rock improve to infinity and beyond in her shimmering Haider Ackermann outfit. Also by Prada is the square and black frame which highlighted the Armani suit by Pedro Almodovar on the red carpet of Madres Parales, while Matt Dillon appears in Blues Brothers mode as well as Josh brolin on the red carpet with Oscar isaac who chooses a dark frame with contrasting caramel lenses.
