Sex and The City fans can be divided into two camps: those who live vicariously through Carrie’s ongoing romantic sagas and those who see the movie purely to dissect every quirky sandal, shade and sun dress. We firmly fall into the latter group, seeing the plot as an afterthought and lapping up fashion’s starring role. With this spirit, the MYKITA & Bernhard Willhelm gold aviators that Carrie sports in the omnipresent movie poster deserve top billing. Originally inspired by flashy 1970’s skiers, the new styles features mirrored lenses and glossy sheet metal frames. From alpine slopes to city streets, these shades have a forward look that best suits bold style setters like Bradshaw.
