Blondes may have more fun but brunettes are the ones men take home to mama. In this edition of Bold Face we highlight five beautiful brunettes any mother would be happy to meet and the fabulous sunglasses they choose to wear out and about…

Shay Mitchell stars as Emily Fields on ABC Family’s runaway hit “Pretty Little Liars.” Her character is a curious, athletic high schooler who has a tendency to break the rules. In real life Mitchell started her career as a teenage model and in her early twenties has made the successful transition to acting. This beauty clearly has a penchant for all out glamour, as she rocks a pair of oversized Lacoste L610S sunglasses from Marchon




Camilla Belle is stunning. In fact she has become one of those actresses who fashion insiders are anxious to see when she hits the red carpet despite no one being able to name any movie she has actually been in. Its nice to see La Belle has a more casual side as well as she chose to rock some Converse Chorus shades in pink gradient from REM with some denim cutoffs and a boho blouse while soaking up the sun at April’s Coachella Music Festival in Palm Springs, Calif.…

Her acting career has taken a bit of a backseat to her more important role as mom to her two children with actor Ben Affleck but when she hits the red carpet she still draws attention. She even manages to snag some attention on the playground with daughter Violet thanks to her Cartier Blue C Décor sunglasses…




Ashley Greene of “Twilight Series” fame is not only a stylish starlet but a rising star in Hollywood. She too hit up the Coachella music festival in April and chose her own pair of fun sunglasses for the excursion. The vaguely retro Paul Frank “My Excuse to Travel” sunglasses from Baumvision paired perfectly with her turquoise bikini top and denim shorts for a day of concerts in the Palm Springs desert sun. Look for the last “Twilight” installment “Breaking Dawn, Part 1” to hit theatres in November…




If royal weddings can have breakout stars than Pippa Middleton has certainly become one. The younger sister of the new Duchess of Cambridge and wife of Prince William, Catherine, Middleton garnered quite a bit of attention thanks to a white Alexander McQueen dress tailored to within an inch of its life. Since then, she has been a darling of the international press and prime fodder for the paparazzo. On this day, the English beauty left the McQueen at home and opted for another brand in the Safilo portfolio, the Gucci GG 3132/S.
