Cheryl Cole and David Beckham named top sunglasses-wearing celebrity icons

Cheryl Cole and David Beckham have been voted the British public’s celebrity sunglasses icons, in a recent poll by eBay to celebrate the 85th anniversary of sunglasses.

X Factor judge Cheryl was voted as the female celebrity who looked the chicest in sunglasses, closely followed by Victoria Beckham in second place, and Beyoncé Knowles in third place.

Although Victoria is known for her trademark sunglasses, Cheryl has shown she is also a fashion force to be reckoned with, wowing fans on the X Factor auditions’ red carpet with her stylish ensembles.

The pop princess also surprised fans when she joined Simon Cowell to pick up an order at a local takeaway in her hometown of Newcastle, after a busy day of X Factor auditions. Cheryl recently spoke out about what it was like to work with former Spice Girl Mel B on the X Factor judging panel.

“I admit we are very different characters and very different people,” she revealed. “But it works. She actually makes me laugh”.

While Cheryl beat Victoria in the poll for female celebrity sunglasses icon, the Beckhams still took home a victory with husband David topping the poll for male celebrities, closely followed by Brad Pitt in second place.

Tom Cruise, who was recently spotted enjoying a catch-up with David in trendy Notting Hill pub The Cow, took third place despite having worn his iconic aviators in film Top Gun.

The poll also included reality television stars with the Kardashians, who have their own line of eyewear, beating the cast of TOWIE and Made in Chelsea for their sunglasses choices.
