Forget the cat walk! Everyone knows the real excitement in recent years of Paris Fashion Week (and global fashion week, for that matter) is what everyone’s wearing when they’re walking to/from shows, or hanging out backstage. Off-duty ensembles are on the same level of sought-after as street style, so when you’re looking for styling tips, direct your eyes accordingly. Here are a few of our favorite babes in killer denim outfits at Paris Fashion Week.
Always hip and trending with a bit of off kilter cool, Alexa Chung styled up one of designer’s Stella McCartney LDDs (little denim dresses) for an easy look. She paired her denim sheath with moss-hued Chloé snakeskin pumps and a boxy satchel.
The beautiful Poppy Delevingne was spotted in Paige Denim Verdugo Ultra Skinny at Miu Miu. We are loving the python print jeans that she paired with a leather jacket and cable knit sweater.
It girl and uber-chic stylist Caroline Sieber was also attending the Miu Miu show rocking a pair of ultra short cut-off shorts with some mega stilettos. You don’t have to be in fashion to know fashion, but this is a look we are going to steal—STAT!
Supermodel Miranda Kerr takes to the stage just as graciously as she does behind the scenes whilst attending the Stella McCartney show. She showed us how to strut your stuff in a mini cut off denim skirt. She paired the destroyed denim bottom with an oversized tee, a black blazer, and booties. We love the retro shades too.
Now it’s your turn to try these looks out!

In this edition of Denim Therapy‘s Window Shopper, we take you on a denim smorgasbord on Los Angeles’ Robertson Boulevard, where celebrities, trend-conscious shoppers and hungry paparazzi frequent. Why Robertson? Have you seen the stores on that street? Besides playing host to Lisa Kline and three Kitson boutiques, you can shop at several premium denim brands within one city block without having to stop off at the nearest Starbucks. Denim-driven brands like AllSaints, Paige, 7 For All Mankind, Gap 1969 and True Religion can literally be found within one block. This does not include Intermix, Kitson and Madison, boutiques which carry a fantastic array of designer jeans for men and women in stock all within walking distance. And we say, walking distance in L.A. terms.

X-Men: First Class actress, January Jones, was seen picking up a can of paint and a new toilet seat at Home Depot. Who said celebrities don’t do mundane housework? Jones was dressed somewhat appropriately with her work boots and hair pulled back. She added some zing to her look with a pair of Jadyn’s in Agave from Paige premium denim. They’re are known to be some of the most comfortable jeans, so maybe she really be getting real down and dirty! To top off the look, some white-frame shades and a black and white striped top.
