2012 was a great year for most celebrities, and it was a great year fashion-wise! Since the apocalypse failed to happened, and we’re all getting nostalgic at the end of the year, so we decided to have a look back at the best sunglasses trends of 2012:

1. Cat eye sunglasses

Cat eye sunglasses are timeless, and most celebrities preferred them this year: think Miranda Kerr, Taylor Swift, Keira Knightley or Rihanna. The flattering shape has been especially popular in the form of the new Prada PR 17 OS, the Tom Ford FT0173, the Versace VE4214 and the Persol PO3017 sunglasses.

2. Aviator sunglasses
