The History of Denim & Rock’n'Roll


Jeans and rock’n'roll have gone hand in hand since the dawn of the genre. From Mick Jagger‘s iconic denim jackets in the 60s to the shredded denim uniform of Nirvana in the 90s, denim has been the material of choice for some of the most famous rockstars in history. Levi’s Unzipped blog takes a look back at some of these stars, and their most iconic denim moments: the history of denim and rock’n'roll.

From Unzipped: The legendary grunge outfit Nirvana recently received its official induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame commemorating the 20th anniversary of the band’s iconic In Utero album. The band, in addition to producing universally lauded rock songs, was also known for making “angst” mainstream and defining an entire lifestyle of music—right down to the plaid and denim-addled wardrobe.

But Nirvana wasn’t the first rock act to don denim. Take a look at other royalties of rock who wore jeans while making music history. (See more)

Jean Queens: A Look At Celebrity Denim


From the time denim hit the market as functional, industrial uniforms to the moment skinny jeans became a staple in every woman’s closet, denim has always been a must-have. No closet is complete without a pair of worn-in, comfy boyfriend jeans — nor a pair of fierce dark wash jeans for days when you want to turn heads and take numbers. But it’s the celebrity denim culture that also fuels our love of amazing jeans. Seeing women like Miranda Kerr, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Kate Upton rocking our favorite brands in new and exciting (and sometimes totally off-duty) ways keeps us craving denim in our wardrobes. Harpers Bazaar takes a look at some of the ultimate jean queens of our current culture.

Erin Wasson For Madewell Denim Spring


It-girl Erin Wasson looks amazing in the latest campaign from Madewell, featuring spring styles we’re coveting hard.  Fashion Gone Rogue reports:

“American model Erin Wasson lands the spring-summer 2014 campaign from Madewell, looking the very picture of casual elegance in the shoot photographed on location in the island nation of Malta. Benny Horne captures the blonde beauty in the brand’s denim-rooted designs with a laid-back attitude. Erin also brought her bohemian style to Free People’s March catalogue where she got “married” in a Las Vegas style wedding.”

Taylor Swift Looking Perfect in Black Orchid Skinny Jeans


Taylor Swift was recently spotted strolling in New York wearing a pair of Black Orchid Black Jewel Jeggings in Malaga Wine (grab a similar pair of skinnies here). Colored skinny jeans are one of our favorite picks for transitional dressing between seasons, and Taylor nailed this lok wtith a neutral peak coat, a simple chic bag, and plaid scarf. She must know she looks good, too — she looks pretty content.

Shailene Woodley In Levi’s Denim Shorts


Shailene WoodleyDivergent star who apparently loves saying “badass” (a little celeb trivia for you this afternoon) posed in front of the movie poster for the film she is featured in, wearing a pair of Levi’s Denim Shorts that seriously made us wish for warmer days. We love everything about this look, right down to how comfortable she appears in the ensemble. She paired the shorts with a simple leather jacket over a hoodie, and a sheer knit top.

Cara Delevinge Wearing Current/Elliott Shredded Jeans


It-model Cara Delevinge was recently spotted wearing Current/Elliott The Stiletto Jeans in Shredded. As much as we loved seeing her all over the runways for the Fall 2014 season (especially at Chanel), we definitely love this model off duty, laid back look. She paired the jeans with a varsity jacket layered under a leather jacket, and a cranberry knit tank. To Current/Elliot’s credit, in order for destroyed denim to look legit, it has to appear sporadic and authentic. We think the brand accomplished this with these jeans.

Rihanna Wears Louis Vuitton Boyfriend Jeans On VOGUE March Cover


Rihanna is featured on the March issue of Vogue—the same one that has a very innovative new kind of ad placed in it by Gap. She’s looking carefree and spirited in Louis Vuitton boyfriend jeans (click for a similar pair) and a sheer black beaded top, along with neutral-hued makeup and a choppy short hairstyle. We’re digging it in comparison to her usual less jovial appearance. What do you think?
