Freddie Mercury Wears Aviator Sunglasses in Bohemian Rhapsody with Rami Malek

The new Queen and Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody is starting to build up some buzz of Oscar talk for it's main star Rami Malek, who puts in the performance of his career so far as the Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.

The film has already been released in the UK, so I was lucky enough to see it early and while it's by no means a perfect film and does shy away from some of the darker themes you'd expect in a film about a rock and roll band of the 70's and 80's I personally didn't mind one bit.  I had a great time watching this film - its fair to say it's a true love letter to the amazing music that Queen produced and I loved the movie for the music and for the amazing performance by Rami Malek.

Freddie Mercury's Iconic Sunglasses

The film covers a time period of more than a decade from the 1970's to the 80's so there are numerous sunglasses worn throughout the movie as well as some pretty retro prescription eyewear frames too.  But most prominently during the film we see Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury wearing some highly reflective mirrored Aviator style sunglasses.

These mirrored Aviator style sunglasses are worn most notably during a key scene during the film where the press are hounding Freddie Mercury about his personal life and sexuality.  It's a high-pressure moment for Freddie and the rest of the band and it was no wonder he was hiding behind the large reflective sunglasses.

It's not clear exactly which model sunglasses Freddie Mercury wears during this key scene in Bohemian Rhapsody, but these Ray-Ban RB3025 Mirrored Aviator sunglasses would be a near-perfect match.
These Ray-Ban Aviator Sunglasses are arguably some of the most iconic and popular sunglasses ever made.  They have been worn by many music and movie stars over the years and they never go out of fashion.  You can find these Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses over on Amazon: -
