LeAnn Rimes was snapped while she was out shopping for food in LA, California. The singer is wearing a pair of Current/Elliott boyfriend jeans, she is wearing them tighter than most of the celebs though, I think I prefer them worn this way. She looks very cute and casual in this outfit, I think she should still wear a bra though.

Michael Jackson was not just the king of pop. He inspired many designers when creating their clothes, he was a style icon, he made a statement and had a place in the fashion world. I wanted to do a tribute to Michael now he has sadly passed away on the 25th June 2009.
Michael Jackson’s style has always been very ‘out there’, since he was little and a member of the Jackson 5 he was very fashionable, with his bell bottom jeans, platform shoes and printed tops but Michael has always kept his outfits smart. Even when he wasn’t very well a while ago and was spotted in his pyjamas he had still paired those pyjama bottoms with a blazer and white top, he always kept a very smart appearance. His military inspired jackets have always been a huge trademark and believe or not, this is what inspired Balmain to create such military looking clothing which celebs such as Beyonce, Lindsay Lohan, Rihanna and of course Michael himself are all wearing.
He had his jackets designed and made for him just the way he wanted them, his style has had such an affect on the fashion world today. As he grew up his style changed with him and he gained a individual look. His outfit for ‘Billie Jean’ – the white socks and black shoes with tapered black trousers – became a very well known, world wide hit in fashion, his sparkly white glove also is something everybody knows today and always will. Michael’s red jacket for his video ‘Thriller’ had taken everybody by storm! Everybody just had to get their hands on a red jacket just like he had. His clothing for ‘Bad’ had changed style a bit, the leather and the chains, Michael went for a more bad boy look. I could go on forever and ever naming Michael’s outfits and how he changed and inspired fashion but I am sure I don’t need to, everyone is aware of how he dressed and how he had his own look. Michael was never afraid to express himself through his outfits, he took risks and the majority of the time they worked, people just knew he had a crazy unique sense of style and that is what everyone loves to copy.
Michael was also going to release a clothes line with Ed Hardy to be sold at Kitson, they were at the begining of the process, designing and sorting things out, I can’t comment on this line as I don’t know if it got released, I have never seen any clothing from his range.
Michael Jackson was not just a singer, he was truly the king of pop, a gentleman, a huge charity worker. When he released ‘The Earth Song’ and ‘Heal the World’, he wanted the world to be a better place for everyone, unfortunately now he can’t carry on that work but we should still know and respect that and help continue looking after the world. Whenever you see Balmain Military clothes I’m sure you will always remember Michael Jackson. Our condolences to the family and friends, you will be missed sadly, but much like Elvis, Michael will be remembered forever and ever, he will still always be alive in our minds. Rest in peace Michael Jackson.
