C’est magnifique! It makes total sense that Elle France produces a special fashion editorial focused on and styled around jeans. After all, denim came from France. Styled in various popular looks of the day, from Goth to Boho to Biker chic, a girl could really get inspired to take her daily style up a knotch. Of course, the models sport some of the most coveted statement pieces on everyone’s lips right now: The Prada espadrilley lace-up platform loafers, a Balmain ultra studded leather jacket; and a Balenciaga pouch accented by trendy tassels. Oh, and the jeans featured include are an international assortment, both well-known and French denim brands: Armani Jeans, Diesel, Hilfiger Denim, J Brand, Liu-Jo (Italy), Comptoir des Cotonniers (France) and Kaporal (France).

In case you needed a quick reminder of how sexy denim can be, in comes bombshell Keke Lindgard in Elle France November 2010, in the Folk Allure editorial (c/o Denimology). While the presence of “folk” fashion is actually questionable here, we do spy a pleasing mix of grunge, prep, boho, and southern belle. Another testament to the versatility and cross-genre styling potential of our favorite textile. But back to sex appeal—red lipstick, knee high leather boots, and copious, luxurious fur are just a few elements you can add to your denim look to pack a real punch when you walk in any room.
