Chrissy Teigen has teamed up with eyewear brand Quay Australia to promote a range of sunglasses and blue light glasses.

The model and TV personality has partnered with executives at the brand on QUAY X CHRISSY, a collection comprised of the company's best-selling frames in all-new, muted retro tones. The range features chic, oversized sunglasses as well as glasses fitted with lenses boasting Blue Light Technology, which help block harmful light from digital screens that may cause symptoms like headaches, blurry vision, and loss of sleep.

"I've come across Quay a number of times over the years through friends, so when the opportunity to partner came up, it felt right. I love that they offer something so special that's accessible to everyone - the product is beautiful, and the price point is inclusive," said Chrissy, a big fan of Twitter, in a statement. "The blue light collection was such a natural alignment since I'm clearly spending a lot of time looking at screens."

As part of the partnership, Chrissy will also serve as the face of the brand's new global Education is Quay campaign, in which winners will be granted a $10,000 (£8,000) scholarship each to use towards their university education.

Chrissy will help select the 10 winners from students who submit an application detailing what self-expression means to them, and the 33-year-old said she was excited to be part of the initiative.

"The scholarship component of the campaign is what brought it all together for me. The opportunity to give back and fund someone's dream is such a special privilege, and I'm thrilled to be a part of that," she continued.

The collection ranges in price from $50 to $60 (£41 to £49) and is available to buy on the Quay Australia website.
