Anna Wintour's iconic (eyeconic?) Chanel sunglasses — the accessory which completes her every ensemble, even in the evenings — do more than just protect her peepers from the harsh rays of the sun or paparazzi cameras. The Vogue editor-in-chief donated a pair to Ryan Raftery, who is putting on the one man show Ryan Raftery Is the Most Powerful Woman in Fashion, in which he plays Wintour. Raftery is putting the shades up for auction on eBay on April 24 and will donate the proceeds to The Trevor Project, an organization focused on LGBTQ-suicide prevention.
