The Gold Aviator Sunglasses Seen on Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw Character in Sex and The City 2 Are Causing an Eyewear Buzz. Who Makes Carrie’s Gold Sunglasses in SATC 2 and Where Can I Buy Them?

With this week’s box office debut of Sex and The City 2, we’ve received a deluge of e-mails asking who makes the goldCarrie Bradshaw's Gold Sunglassesx from Sex in the City 2 aviator sunglasses that Sarah Jessica Parker wears in her reprise of the Carrie Bradshaw role in Sex and The City 2?

The good news is we’ve identified Carrie’s gold aviators from SATC 2:  They are Mykita & Bernhard Willhelm’s “Franz” Limited-Edition Aviator Sheet-Metal Sunglasses ($525.)

The bad news is you’ll likely be waiting some time to get your hands on these sunglasses (maybe as long as the end of summer.)  The Mykitas have been on back order at Patricia Fields since the gold sunglasses first showed up on Sarah Jessica Parker in advanced publicity shots last year. No word on when they’ll be available.

How to Still Get Carrie’s Gold Plated Look: Sama

Although Urban Optiques doesn’t carry Mykita,  the lens coating technology that is used on the Mykita “Franz” Limited-Edition Gold Aviator sunglasses in Sex and The City 2 was actually developed by Sama Eyewear out of Los Angeles and is currently available on a wide-range of  Sama, Badgley Mischka and Loree Rodkin eyeCouture models at Urban Optiques.

Today’s Look Is All About Pairing the Heart of Gold Sunglass by Sama with Cool Whites and Neutrals for a Perfect All-Day-Long Summer Look

One of the things we wanted to accomplish with our “Sama Heart of Gold Five Ways Over Five Days” was toSama Heart of Gold Day 3 Look: Office Chic demonstrate how exceptionally versatile these handmade sunglasses by Sama are as an accessory.

The Heart of Gold is really jewelry for your face;  so like a ring, necklace or pair of earrings, you want to know that your investment has legs in terms of how many different ways you can pair it.

The first two looks we put together were a little more opulent — perfect for a summer wedding or formal event when the days are still long and you can wear your sunglasses into the evening hours.

Today’s look is a bit more understated.

We wanted to show how you take the Heart of Gold and accessorize them with day wear — letting you transition flawlessly from the office, to lunch, to dinner without doing much more than perhaps swapping out your shoes.

The look below combines the cool whites and neutral grays of an sophisticated shirt dress from Alice + Olivia with jewelry in yellow gold, diamonds and precious stones that once again play off from the Swarovski crystals in the Heart of Gold’s temples.

See How Versatile this Sexy, Sophisticated Sun is as We Present Five Different Ways to Accessorize the Heart of Gold by Sama

In celebration of both the arrival of summer and the debut of Sama Couture Eyewear at UrbanSama Heart of Gold Sunglasses with 24K Gold Plated Lenses Optiques, we decided to take one of Sama’s most beautiful, unique eyewear pieces — the Sama Heart of Gold sunglass — and create five different looks over the next five days.

The Heart of Gold combines colored Swarovski crystals set in 24K gold over titanium frames with Sama’s signature 24K gold flash coated mirrored lenses to create a luxed-up, decadent alternative to the typical aviator sunglass.

The Heart of Gold comes in both yellow gold and platinum frames. Lens tints and coatings are customized for you, including 24K yellow gold or 18K white gold lenses.

Heart of Gold was a true labor of love for Sama Eyewear founder and lead designer Sheila Vance, who literally created the sunglasses in memory of her late son Sam Vance, who lost his life at 19 years old to heroine experimentation.  One hundred percent of the net profits of Heart of Gold sales are donated by Sama to the Betty Ford Clinic.

This look is all about rich, warm hues, metallics and crystals.
