Foster Grant, the brand credited with selling the first pair of mass-produced sunglasses ever in the United States in 1929, celebrated their 85th Anniversary yesterday at Gansevoort Park Avenue in New York! As part of the Anniversary, Foster Grant partnered with The Vampire Diaries actress and musician, Kat Graham for a series of Foster Grant print ads this summer. Kat joins iconic actress and author Brooke Shields as the latest celebrity featured in the brand’s famous “Who’s That Behind Those Foster Grants?” campaign! Celebrities in the past also include Raquel Welch, Anthony Quinn, Peter Sellers, Mia Farrow, Elke Sommer and Vanessa Redgrave – amazing, right?!
