Victoria Justice stopped by the Grove to appear on Extra while promoting her upcoming summer concert tour. For her appearance, Victoria wore a pair of DL1961 skinny jeans with a Prabal Gurung for Target tee shirt and heels.
We see Victoria out in DL1961 a lot, it seems to be one of her favorite brands. This style is very similar to the Amanda style that has pocket zips, but instead of just zippers on one side, these have zippers on both sides. I like that the zippers are a bit more subtle and add a nice detail to these jeans. You can buy DL1961 jeans online here.
This weeks review of mine is on the brand new DL1961 Emma skinny jeans in Bloom, which are part of their new DLpro fabric range. I was very intrigued to do this review as I have numerous others pairs of DL1961 jeans and I was interested to know how this new DLpro fabric would be in comparison to their other denim.
DL1961 has always been known for its Xfit fabric which had a 4 way stretch, making their jeans retain their shape and fit you perfectly, but now they have come out with a brand new denim fabric; DLpro. The brand has taken denim to the next level by combining the Xfit lycra, lenzing modal and tencel fibers, creating the ultimate fit, shape and feel.
This new fabric means the jeans have 99% shape retention, while maintaining an extremely lightweight fabric which is not only breathable, but beautiful at the same time. This new technology gives their denim the power stretch element which everyone loves in a pair of jeans for comfort, but they won’t become baggy or loose with wear like a lot of lighter weight fabrics can.
The DLpro fiber is also 50% more absorbent than cotton, which gives it a gorgeous silk sheen and the ability to mould to the body better than most denim.

DL1961 kicked off their Spring 2013 runway show during New York Fashion Week with a choreographed dance routine to Diamonds by Rihanna. The models then walked the catwalk showcasing the brand’s new denim which featured super skinny jeans in an array of different jewel tones.
They also featured hip zippers, colour blocking, quilting on their leathers, metallics and even classic blues with distressing. The denim collection was paired with gorgeous essentials like fitted blazers, leather peplum and loose fitted shirts which gave the looks a glamourous, yet really chic vibe.
After the models had shared the new styles, the dancers took to the stage again for a closing number. This was definitely one of the most fun shows I have watched during New York Fashion Week. It was inventive, quirky and just a pleasure to watch! You can watch the live stream video by clicking here and you can see the photos in the gallery below.
