Behind the Scenes of Rachel Bilson's Sunglass Hut Campaign

    If you had seemingly limitless access to any style of sunglasses, which pair would you reach for? If you’re Rachel Bilson, the freshly appointed style director for Sunglass Hut, it’s all about the Ray-Ban Wayfarer. “They’re back and they’re totally my staple,” writes the actress, whose new role involves blogging and podcasting about eyewear on the company’s Web site. “I’ve got like a gazillion pairs.” In addition to starring in the new ads, the petite fashion plate offers up sunglass styling tips, as she does in this behind-the-scenes video. “It’s fun to wear [aviators] with something a little more dressy because it adds a little edge to your outfit,” advises the star, who appears in a glamorous pink one-shoulder gown accessorized with aviators. For more from Rachel, check out this behind-the-scenes video of her Sunglass Hut campaign shoot and read her blog on sunglasshut.com. –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley

    Seriously, the Wayfarer as the staple “du jour” of a quality eyewear collection? This style has been around forever and does not look great on everyone yet it seems anyone who appears to be “in the know” in fashion declares this frame as the defactor “go-to”.

    Hardly seems like a ground-breaking or fashion-forward suggestion from Ms. Bilson.

    I suggest it would be ground breaking if, say, a celeb or style-advisor wore plano eyewear with their ballgowns rather than suggesting a resurrected frame originating from 1952.
