Are good old Levi’s the new “IT” jean? According to a global survey – yes. And how cool is it that Levi’s is doing the “green jean” thing by offering denim made from organic cotton?! Their cuts are updated to fit women nicely, like the one above – the Ultra Low Bootcut. Would you trade your designer denim for a great fitting pair of Levi’s? Is it all about the fit or the label?

Newsflash: Rachel Bilson has turned designer.
The Hollywood star has designed a range of jeans with DKNY Jeans and revealls she is putting acting on the back burner for the moment to focus on becoming a fashion designer. “This is my main focus right now” she told fashion industry bible WWD yesterday. ” I can’t draw at all so I won’t be doing any sketches but I am learning to sew. I think it’s important to know more about the whole process of making clothes.”
Rachel also wants the clothes, a 15 piece collection of L.A inspired sporty jackets, sweaters, tops, t-shirts and of course jeans (skinny and straight leg!) to speak for themselves and so has named the collection The Edie Rose for DKNY collection – leaving her name out off the label.
And it was Rachel who approached DKNY about working with her, ” this is something that I have been interested in doing for such a long time” she told WWD. Well, when a girl wears sky high, silver studded Louboutin ankle boots just to visit her 80 something grandpa (click here to see the pics) you know she’s serious about fashion!
Another actress turned designer…yawn. I mean its nice that she didn’t name the collection after herself like most celebs seem to do, but what qualifies her to be a designer if she can’t sketch and can barely sew? A few designs that have been released are pictured below. Thoughts?
