I touched upon this briefly before, but I felt it deserved a blog all of it's very own, as it combines two of my favourite things: sunglasses and Star Trek.
The ever-fabulous Rihanna has collaborated with fashion behemoth Dior to create an exclusive range of future-fantastic sunglasses, and you'll never guess where her inspiration came from... only frickin' Star Trek!!
Chatting with Dior mag Rihanna says:
"DM: Can you tell us about your inspiration?
R: Believe it or not, La Forge from "Star Trek" back in the day! I've always been obsessed with his eyewear, and when I got to Dior and saw the materials I could play with, it all just came together."
These little beauties are available in five metallic colours and in one luscious gold-plated version (sadly sold out I believe).
Since debuting the "La Forge", Rihanna has further confirmed her status as an out-and-proud Trekkie, by joining in Star Trek's 50th anniversary celebrations AND recording an exclusive track, Sledgehammer, for the soundtrack of new movie, Star Trek Beyond! (Which can I say is AWESOME! The track, and the movie!) She's a true "TrekkieGirl" ;)
And, is it just me or is Ri-Ri absolutely rockin' that Seven-of-Nine-esque silver lamay body suit?! HAWT!!!
