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.

Well,Well, Well. Look at what we have here! Kate Upton has definitely “up” the ante, in this uber sexy editorial for Complex August/ September 2011 issue. An ode to the fabulous pin up girl era, the editorial conveys a sense of femininity that is domineering and strong while still maintaing a softer side, (because living on a farm is no walk in the park). We love Upton’s perfectly coifed hair and brassiere top that leaves little to the imagination, (you can say her cups runneth over) and her denim hot-pants, although not something we would wear on a regular basis is extremely sexy and chic. How lovely would it be if we could all do our house chores while chasing hens and still look this perfect? If and ever that was made possible to do, we’d refer back to this editorial for reference. Pick up the issue on newsstands now.

It’s no surprise that Guess chose denim as the palette upon which to display their newest accessories this season, considering denim is the classic neutral never-out-of-style option that will always back up whatever it’s mixed with a dose of cool. Bombshell model Kate Upton takes the sass to a whole new level with her perfect pout and seductive glare. We love these shots, but we don’t really know what to say about the rest of the campaign…
