9. Ray Ban Sunglasses


Whether aviators or the more retro wayfarers, Ray Ban sunglasses have forged themselves onto fashion's global consciousness thanks to their superb protection and style. Founded in 1937, Ray Ban first specialized in creating sunglasses for pilots and generals in the army. Almost instantly adopted by Hollywood starlets, the accessories were spied on Audrey Hepburn in 'Breakfast At Tiffany’s', on Tom Cruise in 'Risky Business', and on pop artist Andy Warhol. Now everyone from fashion models like Kate Moss to quirky celebrities like Amy Winehouse can be seen sporting the specs, a classic style among today’s trendsetters.
