Butterfly wings on the look

Butterfly wings on the look

Glasses with butterfly lenses are more precious allies of style. With thin and elongated or round and large lenses, as a distinctive feature they have the peculiarity of having a sort of tail that stretches upward on the outside of each lens.

Many versions of this model have gone down in history thanks to cinema characters who have accentuated the myth. Who does not remember the gesture of Lolita, the character of the eponymous novel by Nabokov brought to the big screen by Kubrick, while turning the winking and brazenly provocative look over the butterfly glasses?
A special mention also goes to Audrey Hepburn, in a scene by Colazione da Tiffany, in her interpretation of Holly Golightly while she lowered her glasses, revealing her semi-hidden eyes from her wide brimmed hat, in a sober and elegant gesture but not for this reason less intriguing.

The butterfly glasses always make the look mischievous and the dimensions contribute a lot to accentuate the seductive side. If you do not have the charisma of cinematographic icons, however, you can count on a simple suggestion: the smaller the almond shape, the greater the semi-unveiled portion of the eye, in a balance of I see-I-see the look that the sexy side increases exponentially.
