The gorgeous Kate Beckinsale tried to hide her face from the waiting paparazzi as she arrived at popular hot spot, The Nice Guy in West Hollywood, California a few days ago. This is the first time we have featured Kate on The Jeans Blog, but we have seen her plenty of times before in leather pants and she kills it every time!
For her outfit, Kate chose to wear her J Brand L8001 Leather Super Skinny Pants in Noir with an off the shoulder white top, some lace up black booties and a Givenchy Pandora Box Bag. I think she looks amazing in leather pants. Kate is one of those women who makes them look classy and chic at the same time. There’s always a worry that some leather pants can lean on the side of cheap, but there’s never an issue with Kate Beckinsale. I think she chose wisely with the J Brand L8001 as the ankle zips give them a subtle edge, but the leather is luxurious.
What do you think of Kate Beckinsale in her J Brand L8001 Leather Pants? Is it a look you love? Black and white is definitely the way to go to keep things classic. Jewel tones work perfectly too though, especially in ruby or sapphire, those are shades that really pop against black leather and complement the look nicely. For those of you who haven’t tried leather pants yet either, honestly they are so comfortable! I would say my own pair are almost as comfortable as my super stretchy skinny jeans. They are amazing!

Ladies, are you in need of some new jeans to see you through the end of Summer? Or perhaps you’re looking for a new pair to take you into the Fall? I’ve got you covered! I have been checking out the latest denim choices and have brought you our monthly editors top 10 denim choices. I’ve already published the men’s denim choices for August, so if you’re looking for the guys version, definitely check that post out.
So what 10 jeans have we got here? I’ve chosen a variety of fits, from skinny jeans to cropped flares, but there’s also a classic Cargo (yep, it’s the Houlihan!) as those are going to be trending big again during the cooler months. If you want a variety of washes, I’ve chosen a spectrum of light to dark, with neutral colours as well, plus there’s distressing and even embroidery to choose from. Raw hem jeans are playing a bigger role at the moment too, so I haven’t left them out either. And finally, there’s even a pretty denim shirt.
I really think there’s something for everyone here and I’m loving all of the different choices of denim that’s available. I did a blog post last week about the 6 skinny jeans every woman should own, and I think some of these jeans here are perfect for those suggestions. I’ve fallen in love with a lot of the denim myself and have ended up building my jeans wish list back up again, but you know what that means… more reviews to come in the near future! Anyway, happy shopping! Let me know which pair(s) you like the most!

The ever gorgeous Alessandra Ambrosio got snapped while visiting a friends house in Beverly Hills, California a little while ago. She took her little doggy along for the trip while buzzing her way into the building. She was then pictured saying goodbye.
Alessandra of course wore a pair of RE/DONE Levi’s jeans, opting for the Leandra which we have seen her in before, however this is a different pair. I spoke to RE/DONE Levi’s about these jeans as I wasn’t completely sure if they were the Leandra due to these having a finished hem, while all the Leandra’s usually come with a chopped off raw hem. It seems that sometimes a Leandra will get through with a finished hem as it suits the wash more, so that’s great to hear if you don’t like raw hems, you can still get hold of a Leandra!
Alessandra paired her RE/DONE Levi’s with a burnt orange crochet top and some brown wedges for the day, with some light accessories. I actually think this might be one of my favourite denim outfits that Alessandra has ever worn. I love her looks in general, but these jeans are incredibly flattering on her and the rest of the outfit is perfect.
Have any of you tried the RE/DONE Levi’s Leandra jeans? The cropped flare is so on trend at the moment, especially with the higher rise. After all, they were named after The Man Repeller’s, Leandra Medine. What do you think of Alessandra Ambrosio in her RE/DONE Levi’s Leandra Jeans?

Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, Kourtney Kardashian, was seen dropping her son, Mason, off at his weekly Art Class in Woodland Hills, California a few days ago. We see the Kardashian’s out a lot during the week and I love how different Kim, Kourtney and Khloe’s styles are, especially when it comes to denim. I know the sisters have been known to wear the same pairs of jeans sometimes, but lately they have really evolved separately.
Kourtney chose to play with proportions in this outfit, going for really baggy jeans from the brand One Teaspoon to pair with a tight tank top from House of CB. Since these One Teaspoon Boyfriend Jeans have a lot of shredding and distressing, it’s important that she opted for feminine pieces to go with them, to really make the outfit look styled. Kourtney added some length to her legs with a pair of Yeezy boots, finishing it off with a Cartier bracelet, a Wanderlust & Co. necklace, and an Hermes key chain.
How many of you are fans of One Teaspoon Jeans? I did a review on a pair of their Freebird London Jeans a while back and I was actually surprised with how flattering they are. They are quite classic too, since they are rigid, 100% cotton, despite them looking really modern and current. For me though, I either need to pair them with flats or heels. If I try the ankle boots like Kourtney did, it made my legs look shorter, so I definitely had to be careful with that. I love how Kourtney Kardashian styled her One Teaspoon jeans though. (more…)
British singer and The Voice judge, Rita Ora, arrived at the Weill Cornell Medicine building in New York City a few days ago. This is the second time featuring Rita on The Jeans Blog as we recently saw her wearing a denim shirt dress, which she was totally rocking! Her unique sense of style always manages to captivate me when I see her in candids.
Rita chose to wear a vintage and very ripped up pair of Levi’s jeans which she paired with a sheer MadeMe tee with ‘Disgusteen’ on the front, and a flamingo bra underneath. She finished her outfit off with some kitten heels in white with a bow and some John Lennon inspired yellow sunglasses. This outfit is completely casual in every sense, except for her choice in shoes. I wasn’t so sure that kitten heels are a great match for baggy, straight, ripped up Levi’s jeans, but somehow Rita manages to make it look amazing and effortless.
Are any of you female readers a fan of the big rips under one butt cheek on jeans lately, like Rita Ora’s? I’ve noticed this trend creeping up in popularity over the weeks and have even seen it out and about on the streets. I’m not sure on it myself, but that could be because I’m 28 and prefer more modesty in my denim, but the younger ladies seem to be owning it. Is it something you would wear? Or do you prefer to keep your rips in the front of your jeans? Buy Levi’s online at Shopbop.com. (more…)

Style icon and chart topper, Rihanna, got mobbed by a crowd as she arrived at popular hot spot, Tape Nightclub in London, England for a night out with Justin Bieber and some friends, ahead of the V Festival. I’ve always thought it must be really daunting when you’re trying to go out and you’re as famous as Rihanna is. The amount of paparazzi around and the people trying to touch you, it must be intense.
Staying true to her love of denim and her unique dress sense, Rihanna opted to wear a double denim outfit again, but this time she wore her Levi’s customized denim mini skirt with a customized, off the shoulder Levi’s denim jacket. Those silver knee high boots are cool aren’t they? I think they make the look a lot more futuristic and fantasy inspired, which I love. Rihanna also chose some statement jewellery to add some flare and then a pair of sunglasses and a bold red lip, to bring it to life. She looks awesome!
This customized Levi’s denim jacket is really intriguing though. It’s been stitched into an off the shoulder long sleeved top design, all while keeping the essence of it being a denim jacket. You can see the darts just under the front chest pockets, so whoever tailored this denim jacket did a fantastic job with it. I also like that Rihanna chose to wear it with a Levi’s denim skirt in the exact same wash, making it more uniform. Usually double denim should be different shades, but because she has a lot of skin showing, the two similar shades are perfect. I will say that Rihanna really knows how to dress doesn’t she? The closer I look at her details, the more inspired I am. Buy Levi’s online at Shopbop.com and their website. (more…)
