Kylie Minogue left her home in London, England, wearing a pair of dark wash denim leggings tucked into black boots paired with a black coat. I’m surprised she has no scarf and gloves, it’s absolutely freezing outside with snow everywhere! I guess there isn’t as much in London as there is down here. Kylie looks good though, I wonder what she is up to lately?

This is one for the ladies who love Cristiano Ronaldo. Here is one of his ads for the Armani Jeans Spring/Summer 2010 campaign. Also included are his shots for Emporio Armani underwear. You can see Megan Fox’s campaign here.
Giorgio Armani is pleased to unveil the first images of Cristiano Ronaldo appearing as the official worldwide testimonial for Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans, coinciding with Spring /Summer 2010 advertising campaign.
The first advertising campaigns featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, for both Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans, were shot on location Madrid by renowned fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, and will roll out starting from February around the world in sport, fashion and lifestyle magazines and on signature billboards in major cities such as New York, Los Angeles, London, Milan, Rome, Paris and Tokyo.
Giorgio Armani said, “Cristiano is a great looking man with the perfect physique of an athlete. For me, he is the essence of youth – spontaneous, exciting, a real maverick. It is for his energy that I have chosen Cristiano to become the new face of Armani Jeans and Emporio Armani Underwear – for his youthful, exciting and yes, sexy, attitude.”
Cristiano Ronaldo says,”I am very flattered to be asked to represent Armani; Giorgio Armani is a legend in the fashion world and I have long been a fan of his work. I am very pleased with the pictures we have done together – they are certainly striking and are full of an attitude and spirit that I can relate to.”
The close union between Giorgio Armani and the world of sport, and particularly soccer, is well-documented. Over the years he has dressed many of the world’s great players including David Beckham, Ronaldo, Luis Figo, Thierry Henry, Christian Vieri, Fabio Cannavaro, Andriy Shevchenko and Kaka’. Giorgio Armani was the first fashion designer to select a soccer player as a testimonial when David James famously appeared in his Spring Summer 1996 Armani Jeans campaign. Since then Andriy Shevchenko, Kaka’ and David Beckham have also been testimonials for the designer.
Rachel Bilson made a quick stop at Gelson’s Market the other day in Los Angeles, California. She wore AG Adriano Goldschmied’s Ex Boyfriend crop jeans in 17 Year Damage. We have seen Rachel in these jeans before. I like how she wears them uncuffed, I may have to try that with mine. Her whole outfit is cute actually, I’m in love with those shoe booties and jacket. While she was at Gelson’s she grabbed a coffee and a pastry to eat in her car. Buy these jeans at AG Jeans.
I saw this article about Denim Leggings, slating them and saying how horrible they are… It’s worth a read but I don’t think the person who is writing it has actually tried denim leggings properly. She is assuming they are so tight they cut off your circulation and are really bad for you. Most of us who own denim leggings, especially the premium brands, know that they are very very comfy and just like normal leggings, they are not some horrible, really really tight, devil jeans that you can’t breathe in. 7 For All Mankind, Paige Premium, Citizens of Humanity, Current/Elliott and so many other brands have super comfortable jeggings, you just have to try them to find that out. I was wondering what is your opinion on denim leggings? Do you find them comfy and really cute to go under your longer tops? Or do you dislike the way they look and feel? I’m actually glad they came out, I love skinnys but a lot of them were too tight and not very comfortable so making them like leggings was a life saver!I wear them all the time with longer tops and boots, flats or heels, they are very versatile.

Does anyone actually look good in jeggings? Rebecca Dana on the evil spawn of jeans and leggings. I can’t feel my legs.
We are now three seasons into the 21st century’s worst fashion trend, in which women suck, pull, and squeeze themselves into denim-colored sausage casings and then waddle around pretending they’re wearing blue jeans. Just looking at these tragic hybrid “pants” can cut off a person’s circulation. Actually putting on a pair is a clinically proven health hazard.
Yet the scourge of the “jeggings” persists.
They are everywhere: On Whitney Port, doe-eyed star of MTV’s The City; dip-dyed onto ubiquitous British model Agyness Deyn; bunched up on the floor of American Apparel fitting rooms; stretched like a helium balloon across the entire Jersey Shore. With a finger in each belt loop, they have even huffed and puffed and hauled their way up into the Oxford English Dictionary.
Two percent Lycra-spandex, at a minimum, and dyed to look just like 501s, with fake back pockets straining against even the slimmest rump and obscene little painted-on notches where the fly should be: They look good on precisely no one. But now, in 2010, after a year and a half in a recession, when we’re all supposed to be a little wiser and more sensible about our purchases, these horrible things are still flying off the shelves. Last summer, Women’s Wear Daily reported that such vaunted brands as Seven for All Mankind, BCBG, and, yes, even Levi’s were on the hunt for the latest “superstretchy denim” that will suction ever-tighter against women’s legs. Which means we have at least another season of acid-washed, faux-distressed, cotton-polyester leggings to come.
