British TV personality Kelly Osbourne was spotted out in the similarly popular and now iconic Tom Ford Nikita frames, TF173. And finally, the star of what is set to be this summer’s superhero blockbuster, Captain America, Chris Evans holds the Kenneth Cole KC2095 between his teeth in a shoot for GQ’s July issue.
