If clothes make the man, then a good pair of shades makes for an even greater face. The digital illustrator known only as Capitoni has devoted a whole Tumblr page to cataloging the most famous cinematic eye wear and the actors that wore them.
What can a great pair of shades make you believe? In the case of Geordi Laforge (Levar Burton) from Star Trek: The Next Generation it convinced me that only this particular blind man can pilot the Enterprise.
For all the other mortals that inhabit other cinematic universes, a great pair of Ray-Bans will do, the most popular being Wayfarer.
