It's love at first sight! Girls star Zosia Mamet and designer Cynthia Rowley joined forces to design a pair of frames, adorably dubbed "Miss Z" as part of Rowley's resort 2014 eyewear collection.

"We wanted to make something that was both glamorous and on the vanguard of our downtown style," Rowley tells InStyle of their starting point. The final product? A bold oversize cat-eye ($109; rowleyeyewear.com) that comes in three luxe shades—blush, color-block tortoiseshell, and black with blue lenses (Rowley's personal fave: "very Old Hollywood")—that not only marries both of their styles, but also embodies glamour and drama.
We had to ask, though, why blush? "Since eyewear is part of the face, I like to think about it the same way I like to think about beauty," the designer explains, "and then if you know Zosia, there’s hardly anything that will make her blush."
Blush may be a unique color in comparison with its neutral counterparts, like classic black or tortoise, but its out-there shade shouldn't be a deterrent. "Sunglasses can change the way you feel," Rowley advises. "Mix it up and have a few different styles and colors."

In the end, the "Miss Z" Zosia Mamet for Rowley Eyewear collaboration was a long time coming: "Zosia and I are old pals and spend hours together coming up with funny projects to collaborate on, but we think this one is a real winner." We couldn't agree more! Scoop up the shades for $109 at rowleyeyewear.com
