It seems like every day there's a new designer x celebrity collaboration, but less ubiquitous are the moments when a star takes the backseat and serves as the creative inspiration and, in return, the promotional vehicle for a line or an individual piece. Such is the case with Emma Roberts and the limited edition sunglasses Nanette Lepore designed for her. Last night was the official launch of the Emma-inspired shades, and Roberts, Lepore, and Vogue Eyewear celebrated in style with an intimate party on the VIP floor of the 5th Avenue Sunglass Hut. (Yes, that's a thing that exists, and we have the pictures to prove it.) We caught up with Emma herself to get her reaction to the finished product and serving as Nanette's design inspiration.

We love Emma Roberts. We love Nanette Lepore. So what happens when two of our favorite people combine? Just take a look at the sketch of these amazing sunglasses above, and you'll see that it's a total match made in creative heaven (seriously, Cupid would be jealous he didn't think of it first!). Yep, Nanette Lepore- known and beloved for flirty, girly dresses- has just crafted her first style of sunglasses inspired by none other than Emma herself. The pair of cat-eye frames is the latest addition to the VOGUE Eyewear Designer Series, and is inspired by retro Twenties glamour with a modern twist. As Nanette tells WWD of her 21-year-old actress muse, “She’s chic, youthful and confident in her style." Considering Emma's ability to switch from rocker to Old Hollywood to uber-trendy at the drop of a hat, who's going to argue with that?

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
