"With my sunglasses on, I'm Jack Nicholson. Without them, I'm fat and 60."
Sunglasses. The great equalizer. Celebrities wear them to blend in, the rest of us wear them to stand out. Either way, nothing else, except possibly the way one dances, tells you so much about who a person thinks they are than their choice of shades.
50 Shades is a stunning hardback coffee table edition featuring fifty photographs of the last century's most iconic figures in the coolest sunglasses of the age. Nothing personifies glamour quite so much as these iconic photographs taken from the Getty Images archives. This unique book immortalises fifty of the coolest icons from the worlds of film, music, politics, literature and fashion. They are some of the most glamorous and infamous people in public life from the most stylish decades of modern history. Photographed wearing their own shades, the images speak volumes about how celebrities see themselves and how they want us to see them.
From Jackie O to Debbie Harry, Steve McQueen to Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol to Brian Jones, Elvis Presley to Yves Saint Laurent, 50 Shades features stunning photography reproduced to the highest quality and text from leading fashion writer, Lauren Goldstein Crowe.
