From a former First Lady’s style renaissance to deconstructed looks seen on reality TV moguls, denim is a staple in celebrities’ closets.
Famous names like David Beckham, Michelle Obama and Cate Blanchett have given double denim their seal of approval in a variety of ways. Beckham paired a classic button-down shirt with vintage wash jeans. Obama stepped out in Ganni’s matching denim blazer and cargo trousers, while Blanchett was spotted in a black denim suit.
Dark-wash jeans and gray tops were Amal Clooney and Kendall Jenner’s go-to look.
Destroyed and deconstructed denim also has star power. Kylie Jenner donned a tube dress made from bands of denim belts in various washes. Safety pins and charms dangled from grommets which also revealed hints of skin. Jenner paired the dress with denim boots and choker necklace.
Megan Fox dressed the part of a rock star’s girlfriend in shredded low-rise flare jeans. The actress styled the jeans with a silver corset top and boxy denim jacket. Gwen Stefani revisited her ’90s punk aesthetic with a deconstructed denim vest mixed with leopard and tartan swatches. Bella Hadid styled a shredded jean dress with a colorful track jacket.
Katie Holmes revived a polarizing trend from the early 2000s—blue jeans and tunic tops—for at least one night, wearing a blue satin minidress as a “top” over basic jeans and sneakers. Camila Cabello’s rhinestone-covered jean jacket was a nod to the decade’s fondness for bling.
Denim styled with crafted pieces that feel personal remain trendy. Olivia Wilde paired a kitschy sweater with high-waisted wide-leg jeans. Gigi Hadid balanced a silk blouse with painted jeans. Busy Philipps wore bootcut jeans with retro clogs and a patchwork jacket.
Meanwhile, loose-fitting jeans remain an off-duty staple for celebrities. Katie Perry paired relaxed jeans with Birkenstock sandals. Actress Kaley Cuoco wore ripped, wide-leg jeans with beach slides. And despite California’s sunny weather, Noah Cyrus layered hoodies with her roomy jeans.
