American fashion designer Nanette Lepore has been selected to participate in the 2012 Design Series for Vogue Eyewear.
Lepore chose Emma Roberts as her muse, drawing inspiration from the actresses natural look and feminine style to create the “Emma” frame.
The “Emma” pays tribute to the fashion icons of the past with a classic cat-eye shape and muted cream coloring and updated with metallic applique details.
The new frames capture the playful and youthful spirit of the stylish young starlet. Roberts, who is Julia Roberts’ niece, stars in the upcoming films, Adult World, and Empire State with Liam Hemsworth and Twilight’s Nikki Reed. She’s currently starring with Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis in the comedy, We’re the Millers.
Vogue Eyewear has graced the faces of Katy Perry, Katie Holmes and Jennifer Lopez. Lepore explains her inspiration for the new style: "I wanted every woman who puts them on to feel like she was going off on a fantasy. Emma Roberts embodies that spirit of idealism and sophistication. She was the perfect muse."
The limited-edition frames (only 1,200 were made) will be carried at select Sunglass Hut stores and sunglasshut.com for $129.95 starting in October. Past CFDA collaborators on the Vogue Eyewear project include Rebecca Minkoff, Monica Botkier, Yeohlee Teng, Devi Kroell, Kara Ross and Matt Murphy.
