Hey, all you Twi-hards out there! Are you more likely to buy Ray-Ban’s after seeing them on the ‘Twilight’ clan?

Robert Pattinson may not be a vampire, but he does share some striking similarities with his vamp character, Edward Cullen — and I’m not just referring to Rob’s on-screen and real life love interest, Kristen Stewart — I’m talking about his fave go-to cool accessory, Ray-Ban’s! And Rob isn’t the only member of the Twilight clan who won’t leave home without their shades — both Taylor Lautner and Kristen also sport their Ray-Ban’s all the time — and thanks to the latest group of cool kids to hit Hollywood, Ray-Ban’s are flying off store shelves!

“Ray-Ban sunglasses have long been a favorite of celebrities, and are seeing a resurgence in the younger generation, most recently amongst the stars of the ‘Twilight’ films, who have been seen wearing Ray-Ban Wayfarers in the movies and in real life,” said Mitch Gantman, owner of Eyeglasses123.com. “For that reason, Ray-Ban sunglasses are at top the top of every shopping list this spring.”

It’s no secret everyone can’t seem to get enough of K-Stew and her sense of style — and Ray-Ban’s complete her comfortable cool look. I have to admit, I’m not a huge Twi-hard, (shocking, I know), but I do love how effortlessly cool Ray-Ban’s look, and how affordable they are! Whether the celebs I like sport the shades or not, I don’t plan on retiring my fave pair of aviators any time soon, but what about you? Does that make you more likely to splurge on shades?
