rich & skinny jeans
Halle Berry was spotted at the Arclight Theatre to show a special screening of her new movie Frankie & Alice in Hollywood, California. She was wearing a pair of the Rich & Skinny Super Stretch Legacy Leggings in Rustic Brown. It looks like Halle is quite the Rich & Skinny fan. She has been spotted in at least three pairs of their new style. I love that she is working the waxed trend here. She just looks amazing in everything she wears.
Producers actually pushed this movie out for limited release so it can be in contention for the Oscars. I wonder if she will get nominated this year. The script sounds enticing and Halle is a great actress. So putting them together I wonder what will happen?

This weeks review is on the Rich & Skinny Legacy Zip Leggings in Slick Black. I think I have finally found what I have been looking for! I wanted the perfect pair of skinny jeans that ticked all the boxes; comfortable, super skinny, pretty and extremely shiny. These jeans are all of those things! My search is over!
The fit of these jeans, if you are familiar with Rich & Skinny, is definitely one of their classic cuts, they have the low rise, the really skinny leg, the flattering back pockets and their usual embroidered logo on the back pocket. Rich & Skinny jeans are actually among one of my favourite brands when it comes to fit, I know I can count on them to make a perfect fitting jean for my body shape, they really look nice. I love minimal jeans as well so I am very fond of the back pockets being completely plain, that’s something I often look for in a jean now. I’m definitely over that phase of over embellished pocket designs.
The wash of these jeans is really what makes them special! They are waxed so much that they give the impression of PVC or leather, which is exactly what I was looking for! The material content does have polyester in it which is kind of my nemesis but due to the amount of wax on the jeans, I can barely feel the itchiness so that makes me really happy! Because these jeans are also a denim legging they are so comfortable! They are really really stretchy and a lot more breathable than you would think. The only downfall to the wash is that you can really smell the wax, it’s quite a strong smell but I am willing to put up with that because in order to make a jean this shiny you need that amount of wax unfortunately. Plus, the smell will fade after time.
The ankle zips on these jeans also add a lot of character to them. I love having aesthetics on a jean that give a lot more to the overall appearance of the jean, I find it makes them much more interesting and easier to wear. The inseam on these is a standard inseam and it runs at around 31″ I would say, even though it states 29″ it feels a lot longer, so for those of you with shorter legs like myself, the zips do bunch up a little at the hem and I think if you have quite short legs then it wouldn’t look as good because the zipper makes the bunching really awkward.
Overall though, I am completely in love with these jeans and how shiny they are. I honestly found the perfect pair, on my second try as well! They are gorgeous and I love how realistic they look. I think Rich & Skinny, as a brand, have really come a long way in the past year, they have really hit the top spot with the current trends at the moment and their designs have really gotten a lot better in my eyes. They also made one of my favourite cargo pants! If you haven’t tried the brand yet then I honestly would recommend them to you. These jeans are also a pair I would recommend if you love the shiny/faux leather looking jeans, I love them! Buy these leggings at Rich & Skinny for $194.

The amazing Halle Berry was spotted going to lunch in Los Angeles, California. She was wearing a pair of the Rich & Skinny Super Stretch Rider Jeans in Black Vintage. Halle looks great here. I like that she added color with the mint green shirt to the otherwise monochromatic look. I also like the style of these jeans. They are a great subtle take on the motorcycle trend. The leather inserts are also a nice touch.
Halle was all smiles as she went for her lunch. She must have heard the news that she is in the run for an Oscar nomination for her film Frankie & Alice. I’ve heard about this film before it went into production and it really caught my attention. It is about a woman struggling with multiple personalities. I’m interested in seeing the movie when it is released soon. Click here to purchase these jeans at ShopBop for $242.
