With her shoes already kicked off and a pair of black sunglasses casually draped over her dirty blonde hair, Ashley Benson oozes a naturally cool vibe. The former Pretty Little Liars actress and model is rocking vibrant red pants, a white tank, and black shades. Benson has been working with the celebrity eyewear brand Privé Revaux, whose team boasts stars such as Jamie Foxx and Hailee Steinfeld, for the past few years and has recently unveiled her self-designed collection of sunglasses. The Benzo collection features three unique frames, each with a distinct attitude. The frames are all be available in the same color scheme as her black, red, and white outfit.
As Benson shows me the three frames, named Victoria, Planco, and Olive, it is clear that though the styles range from more classic and iconic to super trendy and mod, Benson’s style is seen throughout them. “Like, these are pretty insane and wild. But, I really wanted something different and unique and fun; something that can make an outfit,” she says of the Planco style that is a small rectangular shape with side shields and metal accents. “This one is a little more basic which I love. The smaller sunglasses are really becoming a trend and I really like them so I want to do a smaller frame. I based them off something Rhianna was wearing and she is like, the best,” she adds of the Olive frame, a statement small frame with a slight cat-eye. The Victoria are the frames resting on Benson’s head and, named after Benson’s middle name, they seem to be her favorite. “They’re not as crazy and everyone could wear them.” On her personal style, Benson shrugs and admits that she is a simple fashion nova. Basically, anything in a neutral black color is up her alley. Which is why her red Victoria frames are ideal for adding a pop of color to any monochromatic ensemble.
