In January, Saint Laurent’s New Wave SL 276 sunglasses sold out in about 10 countries after Filipina actress Heart Evangelista wore them while attending Paris Fashion Week. After fans spotted her fit on Instagram, they immediately went to purchase a pair to replicate her look. The glasses feature a thick black frame and are slightly cat eye, making them look super chic.

Recently, in an interview with Preview, it was revealed that Heart didn’t actually intend to wear those sunglasses and was in fact using them to hide her eyes because she had cried!

“Actually, the reason why I was wearing the YSL shades was because I cried,” she shared with Preview. According to Heart, there was a miscommunication on some looks she was meant to wear and it led to last minute delays prior to her departure. On the way to the Fendi show, Heart decided to purchase a pair of shades to hide her eyes because she had cried out of frustration.

Little did she know, this would be an iconic sartorial moment for her.

While they’re truly stylish and an absolute must-have, these Saint Laurent shades are US$402 a pop. Thankfully, there are some affordable versions you can get, too.
