The beautiful Leona Lewis stopped at the MuchOnDemand studio at the MuchMusic HQ in Toronto, Canada. She was wearing a pair of J Brand Skinny jeans in Ink wash tucked into some long black boots. She performed her new single ‘Happy’ and ‘Outta My Head’ from her new album ‘Echo’ on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show the day before. Speaking about Leona, I heard she is going to be coming out with her own accessories line which will feature faux leather only. The London lady said it’s hard for her to find shoes, bags and belts made from fake leather so she is bringing out her own line. Leona is a strong vegetarian and refuses to wear leather. I think her idea for a leather free collection will be fantastic, I can’t wait to see what items she designs and comes out with. I can’t believe how much she has grown as an artist, I remember watching her from her audition on X Factor and now she is a world wide singing sensation, I am so proud of her. Buy these jeans at Revolve for $158.
You can see Leona’s performance of her new single ‘Happy’ when she returned to X Factor to promote it. I love the song.

Diesel jeans is expanding it’s spring collection. Starting next year, the line will be available in about 50 Macy’s stores. For the first time the premium denim and streetwear company will exhibit at the international trade show Bread & Butter in Berlin in January and also show a runway collection of the brand’s fall men’s and women’s styles.
“This is our first creative project applied to multibrand distribution,” Renzo said of the shop-in-shop concept. It will be “warm, understated and rock” — resembling a stage.
Rosso said investments made in 2009, such as the opening of Diesel’s 20,000-square-foot flagship on New York’s Fifth Avenue, doubling the brand’s space in Miami and the relocation of stores in San Francisco and Washington, D.C., will help support growth next year. Sales in the U.S. totaled 200 million euros, or $298.3 million at current exchange, in 2009 and accounted for about 15 percent of the brand’s total revenues.
The brand’s denim sales were down in the single digits this year, but Diesel has emphasized expanding its offerings in lower price ranges, with some jeans selling for $110.
Renzo Rosso explains the brand’s partnership with Macy’s, stating “They presented us with a premium floor project, where we will be on display alongside brands in line with our positioning, from Armani Jeans and True Religion to Hugo Boss and Seven, and we decided this was a good business opportunity that would fit us.” However, Diesel will select pieces from the brand’s collection for Macy’s and that it is not designing a specific line for the store. Retail prices will be $150 and up.
