Altina Schinasi was the creator of the flared harlequin frame glasses in the 1930s (also known as cat eye frames). And while they had been around since the 30s, they are mostly associated with the 1950s and 1960s because that is when they became wildly popular.
The shape of cat-eye glasses changed during the 1950s, becoming narrower and more pointed. After Marilyn Monroe began wearing them in her movies, this style soared in popularity. And, in 1961, Audrey Hepburn famously wore a larger oversized shape in the film Breakfast at Tiffany's. They became an iconic part of her signature look, and women all over the world began to emulate her style.
