The actor opened up about his fashion and latest bargain shopping find
Jamie Foxx likes to express himself through fashion, and the multi-hyphenate star is getting to do just that as an ambassador for Privé Revaux Eyewear.
Foxx has partnered with the sunglasses company that offers over 100 stylish frames at the affordable price of $29.99. He joins fellow celebrity faces Ashley Benson and Hailee Steinfeld as ambassadors for the brand.
“I own a thousand pairs of shades, including about fifty pairs of Privé shades, which I also give to my friends and family,” Foxx told PEOPLE recently at an event at the Privé Revaux Eyewear New York City flagship store, adding that his favorite styles right now are the “Kennedy” and the “Heroine.”
Also included in his sunglasses collection are the iconic sunglasses he wore for his Oscar-winning role in Ray.

Fox describes his style as “grown man fresh” and “simple, and the actor admits he’s not too shy when it come to shopping for a bargain. In fact, he shops at Zara.
“I was in Singapore where there are the most incredible stores in the world. They have a whole Louis Vuitton island. There’s Gucci. There’s everything. And I was trying to find a shirt for New Year’s Eve. At most of the stores all the shirts were thousands of dollars, and just didn’t fit right. Then I hit Zara up, and found the shirt for $27. Everyone was like, ‘Jamie, where’d you get that shirt from?’
Although the Baby Driver actor just attended the 60th Grammy Awards, he said he prefers the “majestic” Grammy performances of the 1980s saying, “In the 80s you had Prince, Michael Jackson, and The Boss.”
Foxx added that the most memorable Grammy performer of all time for him was Madonna, “You see Madonna in a wedding dress rolling around and you go grab your crucifix first. Madonna out here acting crazy!”
