Madonna’s critically acclaimed sold out Sticky & Sweet Tour 2008 features an accessory that’s to die for.

The Ray-Ban Wayfarer — the edgy sunglasses — is the accessory of choice for the Material Girl and her crew of dancers.

They don the classic black Wayfarer in the show’s finale, an explosive rendition of “Give It To Me” from the artist’s current Hard Candy CD.

In addition, Madonna’s dance team rocks the white Wayfarer while she performs her smash hit “Vogue”.

The original 1952 model has been worn by the biggest names in rock’n’roll and film, including Bob Dylan, Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, John Belushi/Dan Aykroyd in “The Blues Brothers”, Coldplay, and Tom Cruise in “Risky Business.”

Get your Wayfarer at Sunglass Hut stores worldwide.
