Designer of Eyeglasses Worn by Meryl Streep in Devil Wears Prada

Sep 12, 2008
Being fashionable has never gone out of style. From clothes to accessories, knowing your designers and keeping an eye on the hot new trends, is a popular pastime.

Classic designer pieces and seasonal fun keeps wardrobes sizzling and people who are in control of these trends are revered for their unique fashion sense.

This desire to be in style and glimpse the inner working of the fashion industry is why Hollywood made the new perennial favorite fashion movie "The Devil Wears Prada".

A veritable feast for the senses this movie showcases fashion in all its fun glory. Following the story of fashion backwards assistant Andrea Sachs (Anne Hathaway) who lands a job with one of the toughest bosses in the fashion world, Editor of Runway magazine Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep), this tale is designed to showcase designers.

While the official budget for costuming the film was $100,000, the real grand total of clothing used was closer to $1 million. This was due to generous help from a myriad of well-known designers who wanted to be a part of the feature film. It is the most expensively costumed film in Hollywood's history.

When the film debuted in 2006, everyone was talking about Meryl Streep's killer performance as Miranda, a role that earned her rave reviews and an Oscar nomination. The only thing that shone more in the movie than Meryl was her designer glasses.

The Devil Wears Versace

The glasses Meryl Streep wore in the movie became an instant hit. Everyone wanted to know who designed the sexy specs and where could they buy them. Bold and interesting they made the ultimate fashion statement. Yet no one was spilling the secret to where the glasses actually came from. It created an incredible buzz in the online world with many forums and blogs searching for the answer. People everywhere were talking and trying to guess which designer could be responsible.

* Fendi was mentioned by a number of sources. Fendi, of course, is a giant in the designer eyewear world. Beginning as a luxury leather and fur brand in Italy in 1918, Fendi has grown to become an international sensation, especially in the world of accessories. Fendi glasses are unique, bold and carefully crafted. A definite fashion statement that will be noticed.

* Chanel was also at the top of many insiders' lists. There were a lot of Chanel products on set and a fabulous pair of (obviously) Chanel sunglasses was in a scene with Anne Hathaway. Another fashion icon, Chanel is known for chic style and timeless appeal. Chanel revolutionized style and elegance in 1920's France and has since continued to lead the world. That sophisticated elegance is seen throughout the Chanel range of eyeglasses.

* The last name that has been associated with the in-demand glasses is Versace. A legendary designer brand created by Gianni Versace in 1978. A creative genius Versace always challenged the fashion status quo and this ideal was infused into every part of the Versace fashion label.

Most experts have now come to believe (and agree) that the glasses are, in fact, vintage Versace. Innovative and fun, Versace glasses stand out and are the ultimate in bold elegance. Beginning their luxury eyewear line in 2000 they are hotly sought after by celebrities and the general public alike.

These glasses had such a huge impact on the viewing public and on anyone looking for that distinctive style accessory. They are so popular, whole articles have been written about them. This is the power of fashion. This is the power of a great designer.
