First there was Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake in matching denim at the 2001 American Music Awards. The denim gown on Spears and denim tuxedo on Timberlake are forever ingrained on the impressionable minds of young millennials across the country. Then Katy Perry donned denim in an attempt to tug at the heart strings of her “90’s kids” fans with her date, Riff Raff, at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. In Perry’s famously kitschy fashion her gown was an obvious homage to the original worn by Spears.
Then Pharell Williams and his wife Helen Lasichanh wore matching double denim outfits last night at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards and the whole fashion world was entranced once again. This time, however, it appeared the couple updated the double denim look in an honest act of self expression. Pharell was decked out in a white tee, denim jacket and jeans in a matching shade. Lasichanh wore a denim button up shirt trendily buttoned all the way to the top underneath a distressed pair of overalls. Pharell is known for being true to his sense of self and once you remember that he has joined G-Star to create his own line of denim products made from recycled plastics, G-Star RAW for the the Oceans, the denim outfit seems perfectly appropriate.

“Twilight” star Kellan Lutz is giving us even more reason to love this on-screen vampire: he will pull double duty as a collaborating designer and face of Dylan George and Abbot + Main’s Fall campaign. In this steamy campaign, Kellan is photographed in a variety of provocative positions with model Anne V. We’re not sure what Anne’s boyfriend Adam Levine (of Maroon 5) thinks, but we might suggest hosing these two down; although, it might cause shrinkage… of the jeans.
For more information, go to Dylan George online.

Opening Ceremony‘s resident muse and guest collaborator Chloe Segigny is producing a full-scale fashion show for OC’s Resort 2011 Collection, set to debut in June. The “Big Love” actress has been a bit busy, but she is excited to be putting all the pieces of the puzzle together, from choosing the music, finding the venue, and booking the models. As if she isn’t busy enough, Chloe was recently doing face time at an unrelated event wearing of course, OC, and wearing a denim jacket which might be an original scored from the movie “Out of the Big Blue.” We get it: Chlo? likes denim jackets, so we’re hoping to see a few rad denim pieces to hit the runway.

It is pretty obvious by now that denim wearing is no longer relegated to the college set, nor is it only a piece of fabric only reserved for casual days. We found a snapshot of Jessica Biel strutting her stuff in a sexy ladylike tan outfit, punctuated by a blue denim totebag. She showed us a way to wear a denim accessory in a dressed up way that doesn’t have to be edgy or rock ‘n’ roll.
