In case you missed it, today is National Sunglasses Day, an unofficial holiday sponsored by The Vision Council to celebrate the classic accessory and raise awareness about its importance to our health. While we all need a good dose of vitamin D after brutal months of winter, it’s key not to forget that prolonged exposure to UV rays can cause serious damage to our sight—a fact 31 percent of Americans choose to ignore, according to the non-profit. (P.S. You can check how much UV exposure your city receives with this tool.)

But in fashion, we’ve always known that style and health can go hand in hand. In cinema, especially, costume designers can take a character from zero to sartorial hero with the help of the perfect sunnies. So, without further ado, we bring you our nominees for Best Performance in a Film By a Pair of Sunglasses. From Audrey Hepburn’s classic cat-eyes in Breakfast at Tiffany’s to Stockard Channing’s visor-style shades in Grease, our slideshow calls out the most memorable protective eyewear moments in cinematic history.
