AT THE LATIN GRAMMYS last November, Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny took the stage in cherry-red sunglasses so minuscule they barely shielded his pupils—the sort of wee shades he’s daintily perched on his nose as he’s climbed the Billboard charts and mugged his way down red carpets the last couple of years. But the buzz-cut rapper isn’t the only advocate of this challenging trend. Rihanna popularized it in the summer of 2017, squinting through angular cat eye frames that couldn’t have been much bigger than twin Tic-Tacs. And fellow pop icon Beyoncé has done her share to shrink spectacles; the paparazzi snapped her in pint-sized... … [Read more...] about From John Lennon to Beyoncé—the Strange Story of Tiny Sunglasses

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — The Latest on Monday at the Australian Open (all times local): 5:50 p.m. Naomi Osaka recently took up her big sister's suggestion to wear a wig and sunglasses to conceal her identity as she walked around in Japan. The 21-year-old Osaka has become a big star in Japan since beating Serena Williams in last year's U.S. Open final. "I wasn't really walking around (but) when I did, I went at night and had a wig on," she said, smiling. "I wanted to try to do that. For me it was fun." She got the wig from her sister and tried it for a joke, but doesn't feel like it's necessary. "I personally think she was making it a bigger deal than it had to be," Osaka said.

She was born in Japan and lived there as a child before moving to the United States. "I get that I'm tan and I would stand out a little bit in Japan," Osaka said. "I … [Read more...] about The Latest: Wig and sunglasses, Osaka goes in disguise

I think not.” We asked our photo editor in Washington, Marisa Schwartz Taylor, to respond: “We have tried several times to get more photos of Dr. Blasey (offering to have one of our photographers shoot a portrait of her and also asking if she could send us better photos of herself to publish), but she and her lawyers have declined all of our photo requests. “Judge Kavanaugh, on the other hand, has been photographed in public during his confirmation hearings and on visits to … [Read more...] about Photos Show Kavanaugh in a Suit, but Blasey in Sunglasses.
