Here is the countdown! We scored these top ten denim divas by two things: how often they wore denim by our blog history added to the variety of brands they wore. Without further ado…
#10. Audrina Patridge (score 30) Now seriously, did you ever get sick of hearing us say “Audrina Patridge in Divine Rights of Denim”? I might have gotten sick of saying it, but she did rock the jeans very well and did a bang up job of representing DRD, they certainly got their money’s worth!
#9. Heidi Montag (score 30) We gave Heidi the #9 spot instead of having her tie with Audrina because she wore a larger variety of brands than Audrina. Heidi wore a great selection of denim this past year and we salute her for the effort! With her media grabbing Speidi skills maybe she can climb our Denim Diva poll for next year!
#8. Megan Fox (score 31) Though she took the #1 spot for the “Sexiest and Worst” Actress of 2009 she landed as #8 in our rankings. Megan is sexy as hell but she needs to heat up some more denim for us!
#7. Ciara (score 32) Ciara seriously rocks! And by that I don’t just mean the stage or her music, she can really rock in denim! She has, in my opinion, one of the hottest bodies out there. I’ve enjoyed seeing her denim style through out this year.
#5/6(Tie). Jennifer Garner (score 34) Jennifer Garner has been spotted many times being her casual and busy Mommy self in jeans. Though she wears a few different brands, she seems to favor 7 For All Mankind and I personally 100% agree with her for comfort and fit of 7 For All Mankind jeans.
#5/6(Tie). Vanessa Hudgens (score 34) Ahhh wasn’t she just yesterday a Disney princess? Okay so maybe not an actual Disney princess, but she has certainly grown up. It seems like she has went from “cute” to “beautiful” in the year 2009!
#4. Rihanna (score 36) You know I really see Rihanna as more of a “Fashion Forward” icon. She hasn’t been spotted in many of the mainstream denim brands and really doesn’t seem to wear denim all that often unless it makes a fashion statement, but Kudos to Rihanna for taking Denim to the next level in many of her outfits.
#3. Jessica Alba (score 49) I am very glad that Jessica is in the top three. I love her outfits and style; she is a busy Mom but she knows how to put a little extra flair into her everyday casual ensemble to keep it fashionable and current.
#2. Lindsay Lohan (score 59) When I first started this blog post I really thought Lilo would be the #1 since we have seen her in just about every denim brand possible. She was blogged in over 20 denim brands and owns at least 3 pairs of Balmain jeans that we know of. Her score just didn’t hit the high as she wasn’t blogged by us as many times as the #1 spot, though she has been spotted in many more brands, even as the media pounds into Lilo and she keeps having troubles, I adore her fashion sense and her die hard love of denim!

When it comes to jeans it’s hard for men to find the perfect one. Whether it’s the wash, fit, length or even the right fit with the right length. Here are some helpful tips for the perfect boot cut, skinny, and straight leg jeans:
1. Boot cut:
These jeans really elongate the legs. So wearing them high will make your body look disproportionate (you should not wear your jeans high up at the waist or too low below your butt; jeans should just hang on the hips, that is for all the fits). This fit should not suffocate the thigh because they do flare out, they should be loose but still fitted. The length should be long enough to cover the shoe but not drag on the floor and there should be a scrunch. If not, it will make you look like a dork.
Brands for the best bootcut fit:
Splurge: Levi’s Capital E, Diesel, PRPS, True Religion, and J Brand.
Budget friendly: Levi’s, Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister, and GAP.
Fans of this fit: Jonathan Rhys Meyer, Justin Timberlake, Cam Gigandet and David Beckham.
Skinny jeans should not be too tight nor too loose, hence the name. Unlike the other fits, these do not always need a scrunch. But they should cover your ankles. Also, you should not get jeans so tight that you are bulging out of the top your jeans and unable to move in them. If you are going to resort to women’s jeans, keep the pockets simple, such as J Brand or 7 For All Mankind. Keep the embellishments to the women (if they even prefer it). Also, skinny jeans are not for everyone. You should have a lean stature to pull these off.
Brands for the fit:
Splurge: Nudie, Ksubi, April 77, Dior Homme, and Diesel.
Budget friendly: BDG, Cheap Monday, Bullhead, and Levi’s.
Fans of this fit: Zac Efron, Josh Hartnett, Zachary Quinto, and Shia Labeouf.
3. Straight leg:
The most relaxed of the three. These are also the cut I find to be the trickiest fit. They can be straight on some but skinny on others. They tend to box out the body more when worn loose, but flatter when worn fitted. When searching for straight legs get the prefect length. The scrunch will give somewhat of an illusion of not being so straight. Make sure they are not too tight in the butt and thighs area, they need to be a perfect fit to achieve the perfect straight leg fit.
So when looking for the best jeans: make sure it fits on the hips but loose enough to just hang. The length should never be too short. It is better to get it too long and get them tailored, than walk around with visible socks. Simple is the key when it comes to jeans and that goes for everyone. Also, don’t follow trends. Just because someone is able to pull off a fit, doesn’t always mean you’ll look good in that fit too. Lastly, great jeans are everywhere, you don’t need to splurge for the perfect pair. When your jeans fit, you will always feel good about yourself.
TIP: For those of you men that are wanting to be ahead of the trends. Look at the women for tips. Trends for men always follow women (look at skinny jeans).
