7 Iconic Glasses From the Big Screen

June 29, 2020
With many films in 2020 being postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic, like James Bond in No Time To Die, which is now scheduled to be released 8 months late in November, people are relying on their screens at home more than ever for entertainment.

While you’re rewatching all your favourite films, you’re also being exposed to more harmful blue lights emitted by your LED screens. With a pair of stylish blue light blocking glasses you can continue to enjoy your extra screen-time without risking your eye health.

Here are 7 blue light glasses inspired by the cinema to stay entertained and protect your peeps!

Tom Ford Cinema Styles

Superman (1978)

The 1978 Superman featuring Christopher Reeve as Clark Kent brought this chic style to the surface. The idea was to hide Superman’s identity behind these sophisticated tortoise glasses. These glasses were almost the main feature that differentiated the “man of steel” from the charming city reporter. While there’s no guarantee that these Tom Ford FT5481 blue light glasses will protect your hidden identity, they will protect your eyes from harmful light rays and make you look great while doing it.

Harry Potter (2001-2011)

The simple round Harry Potter glasses are a staple piece of this popular series. The only thing missing on this pair of Tom Ford FT5595 blue light glasses is the tape on the bridge of the nose. While Harry Potter’s glasses in the movies were a representation of the character’s humble background, today the look is sought after and recognised as one of the most iconic styles from the big screen.

A Single Man (2009)

These Tom Ford FT5542 blue light glasses match the iconic pair worn by Colin Firth in A Single Man (2009). While Colin Firth’s suite from the film was designed by Tom Ford, he apparently got his glasses from the prop box. Many loved the look and Tom Ford went forward to create this pair of “A Single Man Tom Ford glasses” known as the FT5174 model. However, the Tom Ford FT5542 is an extremely similar model and includes extra eye protection from harmful blue light rays!

James Bond Skyfall (2012)

Tom Ford Marko sunglasses, seen in the James Bond movie Skyfall, closely match these Tom Ford FT 5658 blue light glasses. The timeless pilot shape frames of this classic James Bond look make them a safe styling choice every time. While the original James Bond style consists of a silver frame, these Tom Ford blue blockers also come in elegant gold frames.

Avengers Infinity War (2018)

These Tony Stark sunglasses are perhaps the most popular of all Tony Stark’s looks. In the Marvel universe, these glasses have E.D.I.T.H. technology, an A.I. system that assists Tony Stark. You can get the Tony Stark Edith glasses look with these identical Tom Ford FT5627 blue light glasses. As you might’ve guessed, these Tony Stark Infinity War glasses don’t actually come with their own A.I. system. However, they will protect your eyes while you watch your favourite movies from your computer or television.

Quay Australia on the Big Screen

 Rocketman (2019)

The film Rocketman (2019) dramatises the life story of Elton John, the singer, songwriter, and composer who changed the world in the ’70s with his music and his unapologetic style. The wardrobe used in the film channels the artist’s unique and fun style, including fun Elton John glasses. One pair of sunglasses used in Rocketman mimics the singer’s iconic pair of heart frames. This whimsical pair of Quay Australia QW-000308- heart-shaped blue light glasses are a close match to this favourite Elton John sunglasses look!

Pretty in Pink (1986)

Throwing it way back, Pretty in Pink is an ‘80s classic in the world of cinema. Nothing says ‘80s style quite like a pair of thin-rimmed round spectacles. These Quay Australia QU-000379- blue light glasses channel Molly Ringwald’s character Andie Walsh who had a love for simple self-made fashion.
