Elle Macpherson was spotted in another pair of MET Jeans after dropping her kids at school in London, England earlier in the month. Instead of opting for her usual Eco Pelle jeans she chose a pair of skinny jeans in black with tassels on the pockets. This particular pair is from the Autumn/Winter 2009 collection so Elle has owned them for quite a while.
Elle paired her MET Jeans with a pair of black boots and a very furry jacket. I’m not really a fan of the jacket though, this outfit would have looked so much better if she wore a leather style jacket instead. I’m beginning to think that MET Jeans just might be Elle’s favourite brand! I wonder if we will spot her in another pair soon? They have so many pairs to choose from! I really love the brand! How many of you wear their jeans?

This weeks review is a guest review for the guys. The J Brand men’s Kane slim fit jeans in Night Hawk are being reviewed by a long time denim lover!
These jeans are a low rise, straight leg jean which are fitted but not too tight in the thighs. They fit very snug which is how I like my jeans to fit as I find them more slimming. The inseam is pretty long; it runs at 35 inches which is not the best for those of us with shorter legs so I will have to get these hemmed. These jeans have a zip fly instead of a button fly which is not really to my preference, I much prefer a button fly as it doesn’t keep slipping down. The leg opening is just the right size to fit over shoes too.
This Night Hawk wash is a very pretty, dark blue with lap whiskering. The whiskering is subtle but it’s not cheap and tacky looking. It’s done really well which makes it look as authentic as possible, especially as they were not created naturally. They look more worn in on the back than they do on the front as well. The rivets and buttons have a green rusting effect on them. They look kind of like they were pulled off the titanic at the bottom of the ocean which is pretty cool. The simple leather patch on the back of the jeans is also a nice touch.
The back pockets are true to J Brand’s style and are completely plain which is a nice, refreshing change. They don’t have any tacky nonsense on them which can get quite annoying when you are looking for simple jeans. The pockets are also positioned quite central which is good because the wider apart they are, the less flattering they look. It’s suprising how a really good fitting pair of jeans can change the way you look.
The denim feels quite grainy but of good quality. They are 100% cotton but they are a thinner denim which feels like it will stretch out quite quickly. I’ve worn these once and they felt like they were expanding a bit as I wore them from the start. That’s not necessarily a bad thing as it’s always good when the breaking in process is shorter.
Overall, I would recommend these if you are looking for something simple and plain. They would be a great pair for night time wear as they are pretty smart and close fitting. Buy these jeans at J Brand for $224.

Rhea Durham and her daughters Ella and Margaret Grace were seen playing at Coldwater Park Los Angeles, California last week. Rhea looked like she was having a lot of fun as she helped her daughters down the slide and on the swings. She looks like a really fun mum!
She was wearing a bootcut pair of Citizens of Humanity jeans in a light blue wash which she paired with white Converse, a lilac tank top and a purple sweater. I do like the combination of light blues with lilacs, they always seem to go well together. The paps got a great butt shot of these too! Buy Citizens of Humanity jeans at Revolve Clothing.

Chelsie Hightower and Tony Dovolani from ‘Dancing with the Stars’ posed for photos at the 94.1 and KLUC 98.5 present the ‘2011 Las Vegas Women’s Fair’ held at South Point Hotel and Casino Las Vegas, Nevada. It always amuses me when celebs do the dance poses for photos. It’s different.
Chelsie was wearing a pair of American Eagle skinny jeans in a dark blue wash which she tucked into tan coloured boots with a loose stripy tee. I’m still really intrigued by AE Jeans, although they are a lot cheaper than most premium brands, they do look like they fit well whenever I see them on a celeb.
