This Classic Fashion Item Has Been Wildly Popular for 5 Decades

If you think about it, there aren't many fashion brands in the world that just make one thing, but most of the ones that do truly excel at that one thing. A perfect example of this is Ray-Ban, which, as you know, truly excels at sunglasses. The brand has been around since the 1930s, but it was closer to 1970 that it really started to gain steam among the fashion and celebrity crowds, with Wayfarer and Aviator paving the way for many more iconic styles over the years.

Everyone from Beyoncé to Madonna to Gwyneth Paltrow has worn Ray-Bans on repeat occasions over the years, so while they may not make the list of It sunglasses for any given season, several Ray-Ban styles are classics, in the realm of a Burberry trench coat or a Louis Vuitton duffle bag. Not only that, but the brand's most popular sunglasses styles are universally flattering, which is no small feat when it comes to something you wear on your face.

Scroll on to see some of the many, many celebrities who have donned Ray-Bans so well over the years, and shop the most iconic styles of them all.
