Posh Peepers: Tom Ford Ali TF 221 & Alessandra TF 94 Sunglasses

I have an obsession. Sunglasses. More than any other accessory i seem to, acquire, wear, sell and buy sunglasses at rapid speeds. This year, I am obsessed with Cat Eye Sunglasses and Oversized sunglasses, not just any oversized sunglasses, but SUPER DUPER Large and Rounded Gigantic Sunglasses.

When petite stylist, Rachel Zoe wore a pair of Gigantic frames on her hit reality TV show, The Rachel Zoe Project, I just had to known what they were. After a little research, i discovered that Tom Ford has released two styles which are identical, one called the Tom Ford Alessandra TF 0094 Sunglasses and the other is called Tom Ford Ali TF 221. They are both identical, but due to popular demand, Tom Ford re-released a newer version now known as Tom Ford Ali TF 221


Since then the frame has been seen on numerous celebrities, including Brooke Shields, who wore the sunglasses on and off the set of her TV show, Lipstick Jungle.

 The Most Influential Hispanic Entertainer of our time, Jennifer Lopez was seen wearing the Tom Ford Ali while vacationing with her family. She paired her rose brown pair with a headscarf, bikini, jumpsuit and a pair of neutral wedged heels for a breezy summer look. Lady Gaga on the other hand, kept her fierce persona up during a photo shoot, by wearing a black latex costume featuring hanging chains. She added a pair of statement making black Alessandra sunglasses which clashed amazingly with her peroxide blonde locks.


These sunglasses are the perfect Paparazzi blockers as demonstrated by Kim Kardashian. She strutted confidently through LAX Airport wearing the Tom Ford Ali in black, with Report over-the-knee boots, trendy ripped jeans and Louis Vuitton luggage.


However, out of all the celebrities who wore these, I love how Kourtney Kardashian has been rocking them lately. The hot mom, has been wearing them all over town paired with distressed denim, bikinis, boyfriend jeans and beautiful pastel skirts. She definitely made it look feminine, beautiful and a real everyday pair. It is definitely her favourite pair.


The Tom Ford Ali style features two perfectly rounded lenses with extra large lenses to add that extra 'Fashion Pow Wow' to any outfit. All the colors in this particular style feature graduated gradient lenses to soften the look of the frame whilst keeping it very feminine. This pair is not for the faint hearted, but for those who love oversized statement sunglasses, then these are perfect. The Tom Ford Ali TF 221 sunglasses are so hard to get a hold of as they are in high demand throughout the world, but I've finally added a rose brown pair to my sunglasses collection.

Those giant sunglasses don't suit everyone. Definitely not me and I'm wavering on some of the people here! I used to like them better than I do.

I agree, they're huge and don't suit everyone. But i love the novelty factor of them, they are just so large, they're almost look like a dress up. But my favorites are definitely cat eyes at the moment.

I don't think these sunglasses look good on all these celebrities. Rachel Zoe looks like a bug. The Kardashians look alright though. Don't think I could pull these off.
