Lots of celebs rocked this manly shape and we just loved how they looked in it. Let’s take a tour and see what else they brought on the Red Carpet!

Best Frames worn on the Red Carpet & After Party

We saw a lot of familiar figures wearing frames to match their looks.

Round, square, oversized and rectangular shapes made this edition of the Globes one of the most diverse ever.

Here are all the best eyewear looks:

Julia Dreyfuss

Our beloved VEEP came to pick up another win for her role as Seline Meyer and took the time to do a DJ sketch. For her performance, she chose a pair of highly oversized black round eyeglasses which ironically, suited her nicely!


Julia is no stranger to eyeglasses – she wears them in her everyday life as well as on the small screen. You can see her Selina Meyer look further in the article. But for now, find out how to emulate her on stage presence!


Try on the round oversized trend and witness how your look changes. Vint & York’s OWL eyeglasses are thick, oversized and stylish. It’s a frame for the risk takers and the fashion enthusiasts.

Cuba Gooding Jr. and Hugh Laurie

Gentleman Cuba Gooding Jr. came as a presenter and to support his colleagues from American Crime Story: The People V. OJ Simpson .

To his flawless look, he added a pair of thin metal rectangular eyeglasses that gave him a smart and ideal look. The delicate frames suit his oblong shaped face and go well with the green blue tweed.



While not everybody can be Cuba Gooding Jr. you can at least still his look for the times you have to make an important presentation. The Prince frame in gray is a perfect match for smart occasions when you have to look your best. Like Cuba, match it with an oblong shaped face and it will bring harmony to your features.

Michael Keaton

“Birdman” actor Michael Keaton kicked off the Navigator looks of the night with his impressive flat browline sunglasses. Navigator sunglasses are slowly becoming a fashion trend amongst male celebrities. The manly, decisive look makes them ideal for suits and ties.

Michael Keaton ‘s frame features a flat top browline , Aviator style double bridge and black/gray lenses to match the tux.


Inside the venue, Mr. Keaton switched to an attractive pair of square thick tortoise shell glasses .

The prominent brown of the tortoise shell fits him very well and we were pleased to see this look. Great job!


Steal Mr. Birdman’s look with Vint & York’s Attaboy . Tall lenses, square shape, flat browline, discreet colorway = manly look. This frame is ideal for your Michael Keaton impression. But how about a sweet alternative?

Meryl Streep

Besides delivering a memorable speech, the world’s most awarded actress rocked a beautiful pair of rectangular cat eye glasses. Her mom look was as elegant as we expected from her. The frame is a smart combination between rectangular eyeglasses and cat eye influences – noticeable by the pointy temples.

The thin eyeglasses featured black tones at the upper side while staying clear at the bottom. We love you, Meryl.



Appropriately called Damme , our frame will give you the elegant Meryl look. The acetate frame is a bit more practical than a fragile metal one . You can be highly dynamic in this one which makes it perfect for the office or the academic environment.

Michael Shannon

Last year’s Best Supporting Actor winner, Michael Shannon , turned up in a blue tux matched with brown lenses Navigators . A bit out of the ordinary, these Navigators work best for men with blonde and light brown hair. It’s a cool alternative if you don’t want to go for the regular black.

Well played Mr. Shannon, well played.



Our Attaboy style is still the best bet. It’s a good thing we got you color covered. Rock it in brown and match it with a tweed jackets and autumn scarfs! Your elegant Red Carpet look will not go unnoticed.

Vince Vaugh

Hollywood funny guy Vince Vaugh was a presenter last night and we loved his classic look.

No the one for fashion risks, Vince came dressed in an all black tux matched with a rectangular black acetate frame. He often wears eyewear – both in his private life and on screen – but we think this was just the right choice for him. Unpretentious. Simple. Elegant.



If you want to keep it on the low then Hill rectangular glasses are the right choice. Emulate Vince’s look with these simple beauties that are perfect for any mature man look.

The black colorway makes them easy to match with almost anything. Also, remember the rules of choosing eyewear for your face shape. These rectangular eyeglasses have angular features which should be mellowed out by a round, oval or otherwise curvy face .

John Turturo

Nominated for his role in the haunting mini-series The Night Of , John Turturo surprised us with a rather unexpected look. The actor known for his unorthodox looks came dressed in a lovely tuxedo and wore a pair of brown round eyeglasses made from acetate.

The look wonderful on his and we might just say that he’s one of the best appearances of the night. Right on, John!

His cool look did not go unnoticed by the ladies but he gentleman was accompanied by his wife, the beautiful actress Michelle Bath. We love the timeless Aviator as much as any other classic eyewear silhouette and Sterling definitely did it justice.



If you are looking for a new pair of Aviator sunglasses to update your accessories wardrobe then Fairbanks is the right choice. The iconic Aviator tear-shaped lens is all dressed in black for maximum elegance. The lower side of the frame is dressed in faux-leather , a detailed hard to escape.

Overall, the frame is thin and delicate so you should handle it with care.While these were the best looks from the Red Carpet we would also like to look at the ones on screen.

Colin Farrell – The Lobster as David

For his role in The Lobster handsome Colin Farrel wore a pair of rimless round eyeglasses. While the look resonated with his character we also recommend it for those willing to give the geek look a shot.



Worn by the likes of Steve Jobs and John Lennon, round thin metal eyeglasses are highly bohemian. A fashion statement of the free-spirited, round eyeglasses could mean a break from the conventional lifestyle you have been living.

Jeff Bridges – Hell or High Water as Marcus Hamilton

Cowboy and alpha male Jeff Bridges exemplifies why we are so in love with the Navigator trend.

In his latest movie, Hell or Hight Water, he rocks manly oversized Navigator sunglasses that your dad would be proud to have. We, however, recommend a more laidback version of them.

The Bryant Navigators are wide, tall and emulate that rugged masculine look. The straight, flat browline and straight bridge leave no room for interpretations. You are decisive in your actions and waste no time on trivial things. Fashion is just something that happens to come naturally.

Matthew Rhys – The Americans as Philip Jennings

Our favorite spy team is back for a new season and also got nominated for a Golden Globe. Russian spy Phillip Jennings wears a lot of eyeglasses to hide his true identity and from last year’s season, we loved his round metal frames .

Not only do they make him look inconspicuous but they revive that 60’s 70’s feeling when hippie movements were on the rise.



The Big Timer metal frame is perfect for emulating the spy look or looking hipsterish cool. Round and simple, this metal frame is true to the saying that simple is better. You don’t need a lot to look good and if unpretentious is your style then this is the way to go.

Liev Schreiber – Ray Donovan as Raymond “Ray” Donovan

The modern day Tony Soprano lives his life of crime in downtown LA. Ray Donovan may be a lot of things but he is not a man without a sense of style.


Rocking the Navigators like literally every cool dude this year he preserves his poker face while he stylishly fixes the problems of LA celebs.


Firstly, please don’t beat people up. It’s just not right. But try to look like Ray because he is a man of style. With the Attaboy blue Navigators, you can get all the swag without having to carry around a baseball bat. You’ve seen them before. You know what they’re all about.

Jeffrey Tambor – Transparent as Maura Pfefferman

The latest season of Transparent made us laugh a lot and again appreciate Maura’s exquisite taste in eyeglasses . Played by the phenomenal Jeffrey Tambor , she rocks round acetate frames with angular temples. Now, this is great taste for an old lady but you can do with something younger.

Bryan Cranston – All the Way as President Lyndon B. Johnson

Taking office as President Lyndon B. Johnson, Cranston tries to emulate the former president as much as he can – down to the eyeglasses.

-Bryan Cranston-Lyndon B Johnson eyeglasses

He wears a club master frame, suited for a man of his position. Bright colors or risky combinations would be inappropriate for a President but this choice is spot on.

On the Red Carpet, Heisenberg matched his outfit with a pair of clear/beige square eyeglasses.

Narrow and delicate, these frames were a great choice in terms of color and style. Fashionable as always Mr. White!


Vint & Yorks club master frame is called the Fitzgerald and is as attractive as one of the author’s novels. Made from a balanced mixture of metal and acetate, The Fitzgerald compliments men or women with a strong personality.

Another dominant lead male character, another view at a Navigator frame.

Mr. Robot Christian Slater brings another reinterpretation of the Navigator silhouette in a brown and silver colorway. It’s almost like he chose them to match with his beige/brown outfits.


Inside the venue Christian Slater wore beautiful thin black eyeglasses with a square shape. Even though they were pretty similar to those he wore last year, we still liked them.
