Celebrity Trend - Wayfarers

The Ray-Ban Wayfarers are back! Celebs have been spotted wearing them where ever they go. The Ray-Ban Wayfarer was created back in 1952 by Raymond Stegemen, originally meant for male pilots. The Wayfarer quickly became famous in 1961 by Audrey Hepburn, when she wore them in Breakfast At Tiffany's.

Other celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, and Andy Warhol worked the trend and made these plastic frames even more famous. Later, in 1983, Tom Cruise bought the popular sunglasses style back in the movie Risky Business.

Now again, the Wayfarers are back and more popular than ever, as seen by Ashlee Simpson, Mary-Kate Olsen, Paris Hilton, Vanessa Hudgens, and Drew Barrymore.
