Emmanuelle Alt made an appearance back in late January at the Gucci/Vogue Paris Dinner in honor of designer Frida Giannini. Emmanuelle wore a pair of jeans from one of her favorite brands, J Brand. This time she chose the Lexington in Shadow. I like that these are a bit looser, like trousers. It gives them a more professional feel, in lack of a better term.
One thing that I love most about Emmanuelle’s style is…she loves low rise jeans/pants. Though these aren’t low, she is wearing them low. She, with her personal style, along with what she consults for, rarely have shown high-rise pairs, if anything their high rises are the standard medium rise of many other brands. I don’t find high-rise unflattering, I just find that you need the body for them otherwise they will shorten the legs. You can click here to purchase J Brand jeans at Singer22.com
Looks like Kate Moss jumped on the Black Orchid bandwagon. These jeans just seem to be getting more and more popular. Though being as popular as they are, I think seeing them on Kate Moss must be a great feeling for them. She was spotted out and about in London wearing a pair of the Black Jewel skinny jeans in Newton. I like that many of the celebrities are rocking the more affordable brands right now like Black Orchid, Blank, and O*T*R. Kate herself was also spotted a while back wearing a pair by another lower priced line, O*T*R. It’s good to see that they still choose fit over price.
I wonder what Kate thinks of what is going on with friend John Galliano? I am shocked to hear what has happened with him, being that he is my favorite designer. Then to hear what he has done is pretty appalling. I think many are going to be distancing themselves during this time from Galliano. You can click here to purchase Black Orchid jeans at Singer22.

Roberto Cavalli has just presented his Fall 2011 Just Cavalli line in Milan. The color palette featured Autumn tones, but somehow the collection had a Spring feel to me. I think it may have been the bright white set-up that is confusing me.
He also had some very interesting denim pieces. Some ruffles that came in the form of skirts, jacket, shirts and some high waisted wide leg jeans. The denim washes were also an interesting look. There were light washes, dark washes and looks that had a degraded wash. You can check out the denim looks below for yourself.
Shakira was spotted after a pampering session in Barcelona, Spain. She wore her favorite jeans by Genetic Denim, the Shane in Torn. I wonder if Shakira has multiple pairs of these jeans. She has been spotted in these jeans many times. Actually I think these are the only jeans she gets spotted in, at least I’ve only seen her in these.
I think the wash of these jeans is really great. I have these jeans, but they don’t look as great as the pair on Shakira. The fading on mine seem to be a bit more strong and pale. They are also quite big on me now. You can click here to purchase these jeans from the Genetic Denim website for $198.
