Singer in sunglasses advert

Scottish songstress Shirley Manson is appearing in an advertising drive for an upmarket brand of sunglasses.

According to the Scottish Daily Record, the singer features alongside actor Elijah Wood, who is known for roles such as Frodo in Lord of the Rings.

The two stars are appearing in adverts for Oliver Peoples, an American designer.

Ms Manson is best known for being the lead singer of Garbage, whose hits included Stupid Girl and The World Is Not Enough, which was the theme song for the James Bond film of the same name.

Although born in Edinburgh, she joined with three American musicians to form the band, which was known for its alternative rock style of music.

Oliver Peoples recently marked its 20th anniversary by going back through its archive for vintage designs.

Founder and creative director Larry Leight called them "the true essence and foundation of our company and my designs".
