Golden Globe Awards 2012

I chose a few of the glasses at the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards. We could see both bold, chunky and retro acetate frames as well as more subtle metal glasses.


Ty Burrell wearing Oliver Peoples Sheldrake in Black.


Bill Nighy nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for his role in “Page Eight”.

Meryl Streep got bleeped for cursing that she left her glasses on the table when she held her speech for winning Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture for her role in “Iron Lady”.

Framework Posters

Framework has made these awesome limited posters.

I think everyone can recognize a few iconic frames that really are attatched to that evry person’s image and character such as Woody Allan’s, Kanye West‘s or Buddy Holly’s glasses. You can buy them here. I wish the DMC’s were made into one big poster or even a T-shirt.

They are all male actors, artists, musicians or politicians. Where are all the ladies?
