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.

Channing Tatum is on February’s issue of Details magazine. He was wearing a denim shirt by D&D and jeans by Diesel for the shoot. He looks pretty good in the shots, I like them. During the interview he talks about his life and acting and other things in between. I included some bits from his interview.
Tatum was pretend-soldiering one raw, wet October day in the Scottish Highlands. The action required him to wade in ice-cold water, which, despite a high-tech wetsuit, could be withstood for only a few minutes. “The only way to keep warm was by pouring a mix of boiling water and river water down your suit. We were finally done shooting for the day, and one of the crew guys asks if I want to warm up before I go. I’m like, Nah, I’m good. And then I thought, Why not? Thing is, he’d forgotten to dilute the kettle water. So he poured scalding water down my suit. And I was trying to pull the suit away from my body to somehow get away from the boiling water, and the more I pulled the suit away, the lower the water went. It just went straight down and pretty much burned the skin off the head of my d**k.”
“I was not good in school,” Tatum says. “I could never read very fast or very well. I got tested for learning disabilities, for dyslexia. Then I got put on Ritalin and Dexedrine. I took those starting in the eighth grade.” The pills worked, too, for a while. “As soon as they pumped that drug into me, it would focus me right in,” he exclaims. “I was doing great. I was getting A’s, doing extra-credit work!” He laughs, then asks if I need another beer. “But the longer I took the Dexedrine,” he continues, “the worse I felt. It sucked all the personality from me. I’d get depressed. I would think suicidal—I was never personally suicidal, but I could see how some kids were, how they’d be, like, I can’t take this anymore. Finally, my senior year, I said, ‘That’s it. I am done with these.’”
Reese Witherspoon was seen leaving the Neil George hair salon in Los Angeles, California, back in November 2009. I can’t believe I missed this one! She was wearing a gorgeous pair of 7 For All Mankind Roxanne skinny jeans. I love 7 For Al Mankind jeans, they have a great fit and the Roxanne and Gwenevere cuts are my favourites! Reese looks so cute! I think her heels are really sexy and make her outfit look even more smart.
Thanks to Jessie for finding this one a while back.
Christina Aguilera was seen riding around on the back of a motorcycle with her co star Cam Gigandet, during filming of their new movie Burlesque in Los Angeles, California. We recently spotted Christina wearing her Hysteric Glamour jeans on set and now she is wearing her Current/Elliott denim leggings for these scenes. I think she looks fantastic, I love the outfit, the boots are gorgeous.
