I’m no celebrity, but I’ve seen how annoying and pesky the paparazzi can get (by watching videos taken by paparazzis of other paparazzis. Oh, the irony.)
Celebrities can try to hide behind hoodies, don outrageous disguises, threaten violence if the photographers venture too close, or put a hand up to cover the lenses of the paparazzi. Or they can simply walk past them in these outrageous paparazzi shades.
Technically, they just cover the whole horizontal portion where your eyes are, but still. They won’t exactly render you unrecognizable, but they can hide a bigger part of your face than normal sunglasses or aviators can. Plus they sort of look good, in a Lady Gaga kind of way (and the model they used was pretty, so maybe that played a factor, too.)
These Paparazzi Shades were available from Urban Outfitters for $12(USD) but now they’re out of stock, so you might have to wait it out for a while until they get a new shipment of these in.
