Justin Bieber attended the 2012 Billboard Music Awards which was held at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. He posed for his photos wearing a double denim outfit consisting of a pair of Rockstar black jeans and a Pierre Balmain denim jacket with leather sleeves.
I find no matter what Justin wears, he always manages to keep his signature look of the dropped crotch and high tops. He never wears any other fits or likes to try other styles. I think he wears these Rockstar jeans well though! This is the second time we have spotted him in the brand! You can buy Rockstar jeans online here.

This weeks review is on a pair of pants that I bought from ASOS.com in the sale a few weeks ago. They are the Rockstar Jersey Biker Jeggings in Blue Black wash. I have always been a fan of the brands fit, I find them really flattering and I adore soft jersey material, so I definitely wanted to try these. Having a biker pant in soft comfortable material was definitely a bonus to me!
The Rockstar biker fit is actually one of my favourites, I love it! It’s just like a pair of biker jeans with the seams around the knee areas and on the thigh, although the knee placements don’t quite fit me in the exact place due to my legs being shorter than the inseam length, but that’s fine, they are only a little bit out of place. I do find the stitched seams to be quite tight though, I have quite small legs anyway, and I still find them to be quite tight and a bit restricting around the knees. I would definitely say that these are more suited to those with slimmer legs due to that. They are very flattering though. I find with biker jeans, sometimes they make your legs look quite padded out and thick, but these definitely don’t due to the jersey material.
The fabric of these is incredibly soft! It feels just like a pair of sweat pants, it’s really stretchy, comfortable and cosy, although it’s a tiny bit rough on the inside. I love it though! It’s really nice wearing a pair of jean style pants that are not made from denim, it makes a nice change actually. The only downfall to this material though is that it’s the worst hair/fluff magnet fabric I have ever had. The first time I wore these, they got covered in dust and fluff all over, it’s that fabric that draws the air particles to it unfortunately. That aside, they are definitely gorgeous! I took these in a size S as they don’t come in waist sizes and they fit me perfectly, I’m usually a 27 for your sizing reference.
The Blue Black wash of these is really nice too. It’s not fully black and it’s not blue, it’s a mix in between and it also has some dusty grey undertones to it. It’s a very vintage looking wash as it has streaks over it, much like they have been worn quite a lot and the black has faded. I think that’s a great touch to add to the biker pants because it suits the tougher look of the style.
Just like Rockstar’s classic Biker jeans, these have the zippers above the back pockets and the inseam ankle zippers. I love these little touches. The back pocket placement is something that I find amazing about the brand, they have such a good fit, they really make the butt look good in my opinion. I also really like the inseam ankle zippers more than I would if these had outerseam ankle zippers. They look more classic and they give the open seam effect without being too obvious. I would definitely recommend these to you though, they make a fun alternative to denim, they are flattering and very comfortable! Buy these pants online at ASOS.com in the sale for £65.
This weeks review is on a pair of Rockstar Denim Biker jeans in Pigment Black which I got sent a long time ago. I find these jeans to be really unique for a biker jean. Some of the photos have come out dark but you can see in the close ups exactly what the wash is like.
The fit of these jeans is a classic skinny, low rise and slim down the legs. These actually feature zippers at the inseam so you can wear them as straight legs or you can zip them up and wear them as skinnies. The inseam is a bit long for me since I have shorter legs so these work best when they are unzipped and worn like straight legs for me as you can see from the photos. They feature moto stitching all around the knee and they feel quilted as well so they really do look like biker jeans. One thing that suprised me was actually the comfort of these jeans. I expected them to be stiff and quite rigid and not at all comfortable but I was wrong, they are actually quite stretchy and easy to wear, they are reasonably comfortable for a biker jean!
The back pockets are perfectly positioned as well, they fit right in the middle and are really flattering and I love the added zippers at the top of them, they are functional but they really make the jeans look unique and I find they add a fullness to the butt, the extra on the pockets makes the butt look more rounded in my opinion. The zippers don’t actually stand out that much though, they are blended very well with the wash so they are not too in your face which is something I prefer.
The Pigment Black wash is absolutely amazing! It’s a mixture of a silvery/grey and black so it has so much character and depth to it. It’s really strong and bold and it has a tough feel to it. It’s definitely a special wash which I can imagine took a while to create. I guess to me they seem like an old biker jean with oil on them and worn out patches, they are beautiful. They also have some great lap details as you can see too. The wash is actually what makes these jeans so unique, there are many styles of biker jeans out there but this Pigment Black wash is very special.
These are the first pair of Rockstar jeans I have tried and the only pair. I can safely say that I would love to try out more. What I love about the brand from seeing so many of their styles is that they are not afraid to break the mold and be really inventive and creative with their jeans. The aesthetics, prints, colours and products they use on their jeans are really brave and they are not like most other brands, all of their jeans really make a statement. You can buy these jeans at Atrium in New York.
