Bold Face: Little Dramas

Bold Face explores the cult of celebrity and the styles, trends and brands that stars show off in movies, at events and living their daily lives. To be considered for inclusion please contact senior editor, Deirdre Carroll.

Life is full of little dramas; so is TV. In this edition of Bold Face, we highlight three actors whose personal and professional lives are full of them. Luckily they have the stylish eyewear to help them remain looking cool under pressure…

Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actress Sarah Paulson stars as Lana Winters in the FX drama American Horror Story. Season two of the miniseries, which premiered in October, is set in 1964 at Briarcliff Mental Institution, a church-run asylum for the criminally insane. Paulson plays a journalist who is committed to the asylum under false pretenses by her own girlfriend after she nearly exposes Briarcliff’s darkest secrets and mistreatment of its patients. Here is hoping Paulson’s real life is much less angst-filled, though these Valentino V628S sunglasses from Marchon do lend a glamorous air of drama to her look…


Chace Crawford is currently free of obligations with filming on the CW’s Gossip Girl having wrapped. On the show, which revolves around the lives of privileged young adults on Manhattan's Upper East Side, Crawford portrays Nate Archibald who is constantly embroiled in one drama or another. The teen drama series is in its final season, consisting of 10 episodes, which premiered on Oct. 8, 2012, and will end in late December. A good looking guy like Crawford won’t be obligation free for long, especially considering he is rumored to be casually dating Twilight hottie Ashley Greene. A young, handsome and famous man’s life is no doubt rife with drama but he looks cool as a cucumber in these Tom Ford FT0144 sunglasses (the “James Bond” style) from Marcolin


Dianna Agron is bringing Quinn Fabray back to the Fox television series Glee. Her appearance in the Nov. 29 episode marks her first this season. Though Glee is chock full of its own little dramas, the actress took a break from the show to film Malavita, a drama/thriller about a notorious mafia clan that is relocated to France under a witness protection program. Of course trouble ensues when it becomes clear the group is not able to let go of their old habits. Agron appears alongside acting greats Robert de Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Tommy Lee Jones in the movie slated to be released in the U.S. in October 2013. Agron recently showed up to vote (an event not without its own drama!) wearing the Persol PO0649 sunglasses from Luxottica.
