Director Tim Burton and actor Johnny Depp made what some would consider a fashion faux pas by turning up at the premiere of Alice in Wonderland in the same glasses.
The pair, who have worked together on a number of films, including Edward Scissorhands and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, both sported rounded glasses with a purple tint.
"Dare I say this appears to be a Hollywood trend?" commented a blogger on Gather.com, who said that some research had revealed the specs cost over $500 a pair.
Depp is often photographed in his glasses, favouring thick-framed specs. He has also worn glasses or sunglasses in a number of his movies including Public Enemies, The Ninth Gate and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
However, the most unusual pair he has worn were probably the white "goggle" style pair he donned to play Willy Wonka.
Depp donned a pair of green contact lenses to play the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland.
