Pregnant super-star actress Natalie Portman has been out and about recently sporting maternity denim (an alteration service we offer, in case you’ve got a baby bump of your own) and naturally cameras flashes have been illuminating her every step. The paparazzi might be after her because she’s Natalie, but we’re in love with her minimalist approach to cute maternity-wear. We break down two of her recent looks below.
1. mama·licious Tex Denim Tunic Top ($62) – buy it at Asos.
2. Anthropologie Confetti Strand Wooden Beaded Necklace ($39) – buy it at Anthropologie.
3. The Limited Skinny Cargo Pant (on sale $19.99, was $69.90!) – buy it at The Limited.
4. Lucky Brand “Marlee” Rain Boots ($74.25) – buyt it at Dillard’s.
5. Banana Republic “Deborah” Sunglasses ($98) – buy it at Banana Republic.
Here’s the look in action—Natalie looks stellar with loose hair, sunglasses, a bohemian beaded necklace and this super-comfortable denim maternity shirt, cuffed at the sleeve. We switched out the boots for something a little more fashion forward, but even her’s are pretty chic.
In the next outfit, a super-minimal look becomes super-adorable via less-is-more theory. Check out how you can adopt this comfy ensemble.
1. Motherhood Long Sleeve Crew Neck Maternity T Shirt (on sale $10) – buy it at Motherhood.
2. Paige Denim Jimmy Jimmy Maternity Boyfriend Jeans ($195) – buy it at Shopbop.
3. Dooney & Bourke Handbag, Quilted Spicy Shopper ($198) – buy it at Macy’s.
4. Bernardo Tie multi-strap leather sandals ($195) – buy it at Net-A-Porter.
5. Tom Ford Eyewear Callae Sunglasses ($360) – buy it at Saks Fifth Avenue
And here’s the second look in action! Natalie’s top has a cute button-neckline detail and single pocket, which adds interest (but isn’t necessary to achieve the look). During this stroll, Natalie was holding up her purse to defend her baby-to-be from too much camera action. If you plan to do the same (assuming paparazzi follow you!), you’d better make that purse a big one!
Don’t forget to check out our maternity denim alteration service, where we open up the side seam and place an elastic triangular insert into your jeans so you can keep wearing them during your pregnancy. Once your term is over, you can send them back to have them turned back to normal!

Kate Bosworth graces the cover of Nylon Magazine’s March 2011 issue, lavished in various fashion caviar: an Isabel Marant sweater and pink denim shorts ensemble (the cover look), Chanel shoes, Fendi skirt, Missoni wrap, Moschino Cheap & Chic sweater—need we go on? The mag goes for the “music festival” vibe (think Coachella), which we think works for this part-time tomboy, part-time Red Carpet glamour queen.

Well looky here! Two celebs were spotted rocking DL1961 Premium Denim recently in Los Angeles. On January 30, 2011, Amber Lancaster of MTV’s “The Hard Times of RJ Berger” braved the rain in her DL1961 Jessica in Twilight wash. Her jeans are a low rise skinny with a zipper detail over the right back pocket. The Jessica in Twilight ($168) is available at DL1961 online. Just last weekend, “The Sopranos” alum Jamie-Lynn Sigler, was spotted out and about in her DL1961 Nicole in Onyx wash. These jeans are a full-length ultra skinny jean. Both ladies seem to be running errands (note the comfy gray sweaters on both!) on chilly, wet days, likely wearing jeans that will make them feel comfortable as well. DL1961′s 360-degree stretch X-Fit Lycra denim is a great choice for doing chores — the fabric stretches and moves with you, while offering excellent stretch recovery. Jamie-Lynn’s Nicole in Onyx jeans ($178) are available at Chantal.

On newsstands now, big screen starlet Leighton Meester is the cover girl for NYLON Magazine’s February 2011 issue. She sports a Diesel coated denim skirt paired with a satiny Marc Jacobs jacket (cut like a classic denim jacket, as it were). Shot by the mag’s Editor-in-Chief Marvin Scott Jarrett, Leighton is styled in plenty’o'denim, leading us to believe they magazine is trying to showcase a very casual, non-Blair Waldorf side of her persona. And with her new movie rolls showing her in very un-Blair like lights, we think it’s perfect timing for this prim princess to pull some nice, classic denim on.

Does this styling look familiar? NYLON are particularly notorious for denim cut-offs on their cover girls (and we couldn’t adore it more—this is one statement we rock all year round). For more denim shorts on pretty girls action, check out the coverage on Mila Kunis.
1. A Peter Pan collar adds a girlie touch to a flirty ensemble. River Island Peter Pan Collar ($46.53) – buy it at ASOS.
2. Stripes are back in a big way this spring. BBonJ Vertical Stripe Legging ($40) – buy it at YESSTYLE.
3. Who hasn’t seen a co-ed wearing cut offs? MOTO Americana Denim Hot Pants ($52) – buy it at Topshop.

Household Hollywood name, bohemian actor favored by old and young, and all around good lookin’ guy Johnny Depp is the perfect candidate for showing the world a thing or two about looking rugged (yet sophisticated) in a pair of jeans. In the newest issue of Vanity Fair, he’s showcased in a retrospective of previous features with the magazine, but the newest shots are the ones that have us mesmerized. Depp looks impossibly cool with a denim-on-denim shirt/jeans combo in one shot, while the other showcases him lounging in a pair of slashed pants with a coordinating scarf.
He may have a few things going for him already in the looks department, but gents would be wise to take a cue from this timeless style icon. See the full photo gallery here.
