Editor’s note: Cookie Lyon sunglasses on Empire S3 is underway! Don’t forget to check out Cookie Lyon’s Sunglasses, Season 2 for past IDs.
Cookie Lyon Sunglasses from Miu Miu: Butterfly Gradient Waved Metal Sunglasses (Episode 1)
Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson), rocking a custom Dries Van Noten Spring 2016 2-piece skirt set, popped on a pair of $530 Miu Miu Gradient Waved Metal Sunglasses. Miu Miu has quite a few styles similar to the butterfly frames, but these are my favorite from the brand.
Dita Talon Aviators (Episode 2)
Marco De Vincenzo Silver-Tone Red Gradient Lens & Chloé Isidora Aviators (Episode 3)

Cookie, decked out in a decadent Fendi mink fur coat, completed her ensemble with a pair of $415 Tom Ford Ronnie Gradient Geometric Aviator Sunglasses.
Max Mara LIUWEI Cat-Eye Sunglasses (Episode 15)
As reported in W Magazine, Max Mara collaborated with Chinese artist Liu Wei to create a limited-edition “see-now-buy-now” capsule collection. One of the lust-worthy pieces to come out of this partnership were these € 320,00 Cat-Eye Sunglasses. Nicknamed the LIUWEI, these shades lend a sophisticated, avant-garde upgrade to any outfit. Unfortunately, these sunglasses are no longer available. However, Max Mara has other cat-eye styles to choose from ranging from $99 to $342.11:
However, let’s take a quick list of what else she wore. Cookie wore a Lily e Violetta Zara Chinchilla Fur Coat flung over a $484 Courrèges Contrast-panel Button-Through Dress (as a shirt). Cookie rounded out her look with a pair of $2,085 Balenciaga Windowpane-Checked Leather Cuissard Boots and a $995 Moschino One Way Clutch.
Marc Jacobs Double Trouble Crystal Wire Sunglasses (Episode 16)
Alas, this was the only decent screenshot from Episode 16 “Absent Child” I could grab of Cookie. She looked so good in these encrusted cat-eye specs! Lavender and silver were on the menu for the former Ms. Lyon. With that said, she chose to continue the decadent but playful vibe set by her $4,300 Gucci Bengal Tiger Print Dress, $990 Gucci Angel Metallic Leather Platforms and Dior Lady Dior Silver-Tone Bag with a pair of $295 Marc Jacobs Double Trouble Crystal Wire Sunglasses.
Chanel 2017 Summer Cat-Eye Sunglasses (as worn by Anika Calhoun Lyon in Episode 16)
Anika is always dressed to impress, especially when baby Bella’s safety hangs in the balance! In Episode 16 “Absent Child,” Mrs. Lyon arrived to confront the DuBois family in a $2,450 Givenchy Short-Sleeve Fitted Pencil Dress and $400 Chanel 2017 Summer Cat Eye Sunglasses. If you don’t mind a different colorway, moderate scratches on the lenses and light wear on the arms, The RealReal has these same sunnies for $295.
Opening Ceremony x Gentle Monster Ray 03 Sunglasses (Episode 17)
Cookie’s sartorial proclivities are sometimes even a little extreme for me, as we see here in Episode 17 “Toil and Trouble 1.” The Lyon matriarch strolled into the Empire offices with quite an outfit: a $165 Etro Sequin Bib Necklace worn over a $1,700 Alaia Printed Sweater and a $960 Stella McCartney Zebra-Print Slim Slit-Back Skirt topped off by Manolo Blahnik Graco Suede Lace-Up Pumps. However, the standout piece, of course, is Cookie’s $450 Opening Ceremony x Gentle Monster Ray 03 Sunglasses, which I had quite a time hunting down. These too are completely sold out.
The RealReal has two pairs left from the Opening Ceremony x Gentle Monster collaboration priced at $100 each, down from their regular price of $125. They’re not exactly new with tags but they are in excellent condition:
Tom Ford Anastasia Cat Eye Sunglasses (Episode 17)
In Episode 17, we also saw Cookie crash Laviticus Las Vegas in an electrifying pair of $380 Tom Ford Anastasia Cat Eye Sunglasses (now on sale for $139 at Gilt; $119.90 at Bluefly). The summer-friendly stunners complemented her vintage Bob Mackie green sequin dress and Judith Leiber Koi Fish Swarovski-Crystal Clutch beautifully.
