Blake Lively was spotted on the set of Gossip Girl in a pair of J Brand 901 Leggings in Blue Viper wash. It goes without saying that anything on the set of GG will be insanely stylish (yes, we’re still addicted, ridiculous story lines be damned), but this outfit gets extra points for working in three of our favorite things: sequins, leather, and denim. Try this look for a casual winter weekend. Check out a whole range of J Brand 901 leggings to find your perfect pair.

Who’s up for a little denim x leather combo this morning? Paris Hilton was seen arriving at LAX in Siwy Denim Palmira Skinny Crop with Thigh High Leather Panels in a Paint It Black wash. She paired the skinnies with a Rachel Zoe leather trimmed poncho and her signature oversized vintage sunglasses. Paris has been pretty consistent with her style through the years, though not necessarily on-trend, but in this case, we’ve got to give her the nod of approval. Next time, we’d love to see this same outfit with some pop color heels!

Provocative UK-based brand Superfine London has done it again with their rockstar-chic topless fashion lookbook for Autumn/Winter 2011. The jeans feature intricate seams and hardware detail, welt pockets, and details that add a heavy dose of texture (so much that we dare say you don’t need a shirt!). Check out the gallery below (not exactly safe for work, but in no way tasteless unless flat-chested models offend you!).
If you grab jeans from this collection, pair them with something like a loose knit T from Alexander Wang and a boyfriend knit cardigan like this one from Theory.

Comedian it-boy Russel Brand was seen roaming the streets in New York wearing damaged Neil Barrett Denim. (Denim Therapy to the rescue?! Just let us know, Russel). His washed out gray jeans are paired with a gray t-shirt, black leather jacket, and high top white sneakers (spotlessly clean, from what we see). He was toting a bag from Bubby’s (a pie company), which we can’t help but amuse ourselves over considering his wife is practically a pastry herself. But if he has a sweet tooth, why the monochrome? Seems he’s all about the British comedian rock star vibe, from wild hair to dark glasses.
