emma roberts gets into some shady business, with the help of nanette lepore.
So consider Emma Roberts one of the lucky few. The NYLON cover star became muse for Nanette Lepore, who designed a pair of sunglasses for Vogue Eyewear named after her. The "Emma" features a classic cat-eye shape with gold applique detailing and gradient lenses; like their namesake, the pair are elegant but still edgy. "I have always been a huge fan of [Nanette Lepore's] work and was very impressed with her design," explains Roberts, adding, "I love the cat eye shape and the white on gold color palette. They channel Marilyn [Monroe]--old Hollywood meets new Hollywood, which I think is very cool." That was exactly what Lepore saw in her: "Emma Roberts embodies that spirit of idealism and sophistication.
She was the perfect muse." For the actress, it was in many ways a dream come true. As she explains, "I think every girl dreams to be the muse for something, and I am honored to be considered an inspiration for Nanette's sunglass design." But the best part? You don't have to be a muse yourself to wear them. The limited-edition frames hit Sunglass Hut (and online) this month. Consider it the ultimate in shady business.
