The Results

The numbers prove it – without a doubt, every style addict wants (or needs!) a pair of Dior’s in his or her life.

#DiorSunglasses & eyeglasses have been tagged over 333,000 times, almost twice as often as the second most popular designer in our round-up, Ray-Ban (190k tags).

To keep the game fair, we only analyzed 4 hashtags for each brand. This means that we didn’t even include the #DiorSoReal tag, which has over 260k hits alone.

It’s pretty clear that Dior is the leader of the pack when it comes to fashionable eyewear. What makes even the most outlandish Dior designs so good is the fact that they are wearable. And still, sometimes we can’t help but wonder – could it be RiRi’s fault their models are so craved?
