Denim

Hollywood’s PYTs (= Pretty Young Things) are looking really good lately. First we had Miley Cyrus donning French Chic with clogs and now we have a fabulous laid-back red carpet outfit of Vanessa Hudgens. The Disney star rocked a Madewell suede biker jacket with a white peasant top, her favorite Nudie skinny jeans, matching slingbacks by Joie and a knuckle ring by Made Her Think at the Premiere of Disney California Adventure Park’s “World of Color” in Anaheim last week. I’m also crushing on V’s loose fishtail braid.

Miley Cyrus is not the first name coming to my mind when thinking about a stylish person. That’s mostly because every other time I see pictures of her she’s either wearing a skimpy stage outfit or denim cutoffs with a tank top and cowboy boots and well, let’s just say that this isn’t exactly my idea of a stylish person. But I recently stumbled upon these candid shots of Miley out & about in Toluca Lake doing her best French Chic look and I’m somewhat smitten with it. The songstress wore a striped Elizabeth and James pocket tee, a pair JET skinny jeans and yup, you guessed it right, a pair of so-hot-right-now Jeffrey Campbell “Charli” clogs. Her best accessory though? The arm candy aka boyf Liam Hemsworth. Yummy!

During Kim Kardashian‘s recent trip to Miami she spent lots of quality time with her little nephew Mason, got a golden glow on the beach and most up-my-alley, wore fabulous outfit after outfit… well, after outfit. How totally Kardashian of her! Here she attended the Miami Open in jeans and a blazer with Louboutins that I love, don’t you? It’s a look that’s laid-back enough that almost anyone can pull it off. Give it a try.

Vanessa Hudgens makes casual chic look so effortless, doesn’t she? She’s just adorable, and she consistently manages to look comfy—without looking sloppy (unlike those famous twins who have elevated bag lady chic to an art form). While Vanessa likely has access to myriad designer labels and pieces, in her everyday life, she tends to keep it real. So real, in fact, that almost anyone can steal this look, as all the pieces are standard ready-to-wear, at glorious ready-to-wear prices.

I love Balmain and their jeans sure look amazing, but let’s be serious for a moment: who could justify spending more than $1.000 on a pair of jeans (celebrities and oil sheikh family members excluded)? I know I couldn’t.

Vintage1 Serena Motorcycle Zipper Skinny Jean

If you can’t or don’t want to spend so much $$$ on denim, but still crave the Balmain rock chick jeans, you can buy this Balmain inspired version by Vintage1 which will save you more than 90% of the original’s price (and still they’re around $200 which is not that cheap for most of us). Celebrities like Rihanna and Cameron Diaz have been spotted wearing these Balmain look-a-like jeans.

Rockstar Denim Ripped Biker Zip Bottom Jean

If you’re willing to spend a bit more to get a closer Balmain look, you might consider these jeans by Rockstar Denim to be a good alternative. As you can see, the stitching detail on the knees is almost identical though this version has a distressed, ripped look which the Balmain jeans don’t have.
