Style Hunter: Kristen Stewart's retro sunglasses in 'Eclipse'

twilight-bella-sunglassesWhen Eclipse premiered June 30, I knew Style Hunter would be inundated with questions about Bella, Edward and the rest of the Cullen clan’s clothing choices for months to come. But nothing from the film garnered as much as attention as the cat-eye sunglasses Bella wore while visiting her mom in Florida.

I went straight to source and spoke to Eclipse‘s costume designer Tish Monaghan, who revealed that these retro shades were actually just a pair of lower-priced knock-offs that Kristen Stewart picked out of 100 different options collected by props master Grant Swain.

To save you the hassle of trolling the streets for our own off-the-sidewalk pair, we’ve handpicked three similar style options that’ll help you copy Bella’s retro look:

  • Proenza Schouler’s extended cat eye sunglasses ($290; lagarconne.com)
  • Ray-Ban’s “Cats 1000″ sunglasses ($170; asos.com)
  • Fred Flare’s “Bridget” sunglasses ($11; fredflare.com)

    Uh, the Ray Ban’s on the website say $170.

    • dublin04

      Guess they didn’t use the Change Currency option….

  • Finally!

    Glad to finally (sort of) have those sunglasses covered.
    BUT, her name is KRISTEN Stewart. And those Ray Bans aren’t even close.

    • sjafkljafds

      who said it wasn’t?

      • Mel

        I was wondering the same thing…what’s the argument? And seriously people– it’s sunglasses. Stop worrying about what the stars wear and get your own sense of style!

      • @sjafkljafds and Mel

        Her name was originally misspelled as “Kirsten” (twice). Kind of a major mistake for an entertainment writer.
        And Mel, why are you reading Style Hunter if you truly don’t care?

  • DRS

    I’m really more interested in the plaid shirt she wears while trying to seduce Edward when he gives her that heinous ring.

    • ehartmk

      ditto!!!! :D

    • sascrotch

      that ring is pretty ugly!

      • Maddelynn Rene

        It’s actually very gorgeous in my opinion. I love the ring and I am very jealous of Bella, even though it’s just a movie.

    • Melissa

      I know! I love that top! So cute.

    • priss23jam

      yap

  • Madd

    Now can you find anything that Pam has worn on True Blood?

  • StewyFan

    Forget Eclipse, I want the aviators she’s wearing in The Runaways at the pool.

  • Jackie

    Wow, the $11 ones are so tempting!

    • Christina

      Yeah but $8 for shipping is not worth it.

      • dana

        yeah but then that would be only $18 compared to what you would be paying for if you got the $290 ones, that is an outrageous amount for some glasses!

      • dana

        $19 my bad!!! xD

  • fingerbrain

    what a nice sunglasses

  • Patrick

    Rather ugly.

  • pascal

    trop belle pfffff je l’aime

  • Lou-Ann Burns

    I love everything about twlight… and everyone in it.. you all did a great job on the films… i give everyone props…

  • Taz

    I have been wearing cat eye sunglasses for years!! I have somer eally cute ones with rhinestones aroud the edges of them.

  • Ashley

    While I think they are nice sunglasses, I didn’t really get the point of her having them. She only put them on for about a minute then took them right back off.

    • Lynda

      coz she wasn’t telling her mother the whole truth and she was avoiding eye contact at that part (am guessing but that is how i perceived it)

  • Joie

    The $11 ones the closest ones by far!

  • Cammy

    Cool shades. Unfortunately my shape face wont accomodate these, but they look good on her. They also go nicely with that sleek black classic car Robert has been seen driving. Burgers at the drive-in, next malts at the soda shop? wild! lol.

  • Tracee

    Pft those glasses they linked to are uugllyy! Check out the ‘Ultra Lux’ on here!
