Do you think it's a mystical coincidence Selena Gomez is dating Twilight's Taylor Lautner and wearing Paige's Eclipse jeans? Think you're the biggest Twilight fan(atic)? Think again. Show your vamp pride by picking up a pair of Paige's Eclipse jeans ($165). I happen to be reading the third book as I write so it's also a mystical coincidence that I bring you the 411. These jeans aren't all talk — the wash is a deep, navy blue made of Paige’s signature stretch denim infused with XLA Luxury Stretch Fiber, meaning they stretch both horizontally and vertically. Bet all that stretch comes in handy when you're cutting a rug with a werewolf . . .
June. Junio. Giugno. Juin. Juni. There you have it in five languages. "It" being my favorite month — ever. Seriously, it's the beginning of Summer, the sun has come out to play, and I'm feelin' fine. June is also a prime month for me because of the super June sales! Though I usually already have my Summer stock by now, one can always use more tanks, sandals, and swims. Interestingly, this month's musts are all little sparkly things, a couple pairs of pants, and my new baby: my very first non-vintage Bottega! Feels like butta.
Nicky Hilton attended the launch party for Paige and OPI's Bright Pair collection in West Hollywood over the weekend. Considering the line is all about colored denim, it's fitting that she wore Paige Premium Denim's bright blue skinny jeans. Always one to incorporate a touch of menswear, Nicky tempered her bold bottoms via a black boyfriend blazer. Black peep-toe Christian Louboutins, a baggy white v-neck tee, and silver jewels bring the look to a nice finish.

Fab usually gets to cover all the fun designer collaborations, but this one's pretty much made for Bella. Paige Premium Denim and OPI have paired up to create Bright Pair, a collection of Sno-Cone-hued jeans with nail polish to match. "Colored denim will be a huge trend for this summer and I was thrilled to work with the color experts at OPI to create the Bright Pair collection," said Paige Adams-Geller, creator and designer of Paige Premium denim. "We really worked together within our areas of expertise. I picked two great denim styles and Suzi from OPI chose their top six summer shades — all resulting in a young, wearable take on the trend."
Los Angeles ladies are lucky: Head to the launch party this Saturday, and you can meet Adams-Geller and OPI's Suzi Weiss-Fischmann at Ron Herman (8100 Melrose Ave.). The fete, which runs from 2-4 p.m., features complimentary manicures and a free bottle of polish with a Paige jeans purchase.

Jennifer Hudson — singing her heart out at the Super Bowl — shows us how to dress both sporty and sultry. She's ahead of the fashion game wearing the jacket of the season, the little drummer jacket, and she incorporated rich gold through the rest of her look via Sigerson Morrison's dramatic gladiator wedges and twisted gold jewelry. Sing it sister!

Is it just me or are the stylish mommies out and about? Check out Michelle Williams and her little one Matilda. The adorable duo were spotted taking a leisurely stroll on the streets of Brooklyn. Motherhood certainly hasn't affected Michelle's casually cool style. The actress is nonchalant in her black and white gingham shirt and dark denim shorts. Classic white kicks are the perfect choice for all that walking, and of course, her Ray-Ban Wayfarers top off the look. Simple, chic, and cute. On another note, that green drink looks yummy!
One of my favorite online stores, Ron Herman, has paired up with LA-based denim brand Paige Premium Denim to create a new, vintage-inspired range of all-American jeans.
“This is going to be a return to basics for Paige Premium Denim,” said designer Paige Adams-Geller. “We started out in Ron Herman stores with our classic styles and are thrilled to be re-teaming with them on a special venture.” The line lands in Ron Herman stores and online today.
The first style (left), named Laurel Canyon jean ($218) after a famous, star studded neighborhood in LA, is a '70s style of light, soft denim with intentional knee tears. The Nichols Canyon version features the same construction but is fancier due to its darker, indigo wash.
Paige Premium Denim is growing its business by delving into the contemporary market. Paige Black Label, set to debut on July 30, will take the fit focus of the jeans line and translate it into sophisticated fabrics and classic silhouettes. Among the pieces you can expect are wool wide-leg trousers, skinny leather pants, body-con dresses, and high-rise pencil skirts. Wholesale prices range from $95 to $361. The wide-leg wool trousers sound great to me for Fall.

Hear me out. Faded jeans may be reminiscent of the early '90s — a time when supermodels ruled the world — and is that such a bad thing? You may feel compelled to wear a pair with an off shoulder black v-neck sweater and Keds, and as a result look like early Cindy Crawford. Again, not so tragic in my book. But if you dig 'em and want to look modern, take a clue from Alexander Wang (pictured) who twinned the light denim with fun heels and silky textures. But hey, if you want to channel the supermodel heyday, be my guest.
You know when you get to that point in the season when you are over wearing long jeans? I hit that point a couple months ago because I just had to let my legs breathe after months of tights, long pants and knee-high boots. But if you're a lover of denim, as this week's Life & Style points out, the easy breezy denim skirt is a fine alternative. I have about three of these and they smoothly say laid-back but feminine. What's more, my legs can finally breathe!
