I told @VogueMagazine how the @AstronautWives’ retro fashions are topped off with chic shades.

To differentiate among the women (it can be tough to keep them straight at first), he gave each her own color palette—blacks, whites, and grays for frosty, sophisticated Louise Shepard (Dominique McElligott); baby blues and pinks for reserved, stuttering Annie Glenn (Azure Parsons); tropical greens and mixed prints for the outspoken, Marilyn Monroe–esque Rene Carpenter (Yvonne Strahovski).  The finishing touch: finding each woman the perfect pair of shades, because nobody needs eye protection like an astronaut’s wife, for whom staring up at the sky is basically an occupational hazard.

When’s Senior Culture Writer Julia Felsenthal asked me about my costume designer’s backstory on The Astronaut Wives Club, I said “We’re not doing men in great suits and women in New York silhouettes. We’re starting in middle America, and having this journey with the wives as they grow into themselves and learn about life and style.”

But I can’t go without giving props to our prop master Jonathan R. Hodges for working with costumes to source vintage styles from American Optical, Persol, and Ray-Ban. It’s one of those gray areas where costumes and props converge. Julia Felsenthal notes “The finishing touch [in] finding each woman the perfect pair of shades [is major] because nobody needs eye protection like an astronaut’s wife, for whom staring up at the sky is basically an occupational hazard.”

Check out’s full article by Julia Felsenthal From Lisa Loeb to the Astronaut Wives: Why Cat-Eye Glasses Are Cool Again, to find out why’s Fashion News Director, Chioma Nnadi, likes them so much. And get ready for your next post-MadMen fashion fix this week with episode two of The Astronaut Wives Club, “Protocol.”
