With apologies to both Man Ray and Ray-ban. The illustration explains all.

       I love it. Now, what can you do for me with Bill Brandt and Jan Saudek?
normzone, Feb 25 2007

       So...they make you look like Liza Mineli?   

       How about Man-Ray-Bansai Kittens?

       [xenzag], that site won't let the link through. I love Jan Saudek's work.

       curious - works fine for me... try http:// www.saudek.com then search under year 1974 for "Marie No 1", it's about the tenth photograph

       It's working fine now. So I could wear that instead of lip balm.   

       You're going to find Bill Brandt a bit of a challenge. I love his wide angle work.

       ....well I'd be thinking of you, with a large apple hiding your face, holding the image in the last link, in both hands, in imitation of the pose contained within the photograph.

       You'll need your Philip Glasses for reading music, though.

       Also good for blinding winter sun. Illustration transferred to Tumblr (link) (I'm a big fan of Man Ray)

       Interestingly, the owners of Ray-Ban, an Italian company called Luxottica have largely sewn-up the sunglasses market. So if you see sunglasses marketed under any of the names below, they actually all originate from the same place:   

       Alain Mikli, Arnette, Eye Safety Systems (ESS), Oakley, Oliver Peoples, Persol, Ray-Ban, Sferoflex, Vogue Eyewear, Giorgio Armani, Brooks Brothers, Bulgari, Burberry, Chanel, Coach, Dolce & Gabbana, DKNY, Michael Kors, and Miu Miu.   

       (Taken from the wikipedia page)   

       Interesting from a monopoly perspective - that a single company can control so many different brands, and maintain an illusion of competition.
