When denim jeans first came onto the scene, they were dominated by dudes. Whether they were out on the farm, working the railroads, or cruisin' on their Harleys, men were always the ones to don a pair of denim. Well, times have changed, and so has fashion—and jeans are no longer for the manly man. Thanks to a few hot chicks with bangin' bodies, jeans are a quintessential go-to item when we find ourselves in a closet crunch. Check out these three vixens who paved the way for the wardrobe of the woman of today, and proved that a pair of blue jeans ain't just for the boys.

1. Marilyn Monroe
In the River Of No Return, Marilyn Monroe rides the rapids, builds a campfire, and successfully scores the man, all while wearing a pair of workmen's denim. Staying true to her sex-kitten self, this blonde bombshell proves that sometimes a good ol' pair of blue jeans is just as sexy as a white, windblown halter dress.
2. Charlie's Angels
From their feathered hair to their ass-kicking skills, the tough trio that makes up Charlie's Angels go full throttle when it comes to fashion, wearing head-to-toe denim and proving that they've got beauty, brains, and an eye for style.
3. Daisy Mae Duke
Catherine Bach, a.k.a., Daisy Mae Duke wore barely there bottoms in her role as the provocative Southern Belle in the small hamlet of Hazzard County. Along with her ditzy persona, her denim derriere stole the show and coined the term for those infamous high-waisted shorts we all know as "daisy dukes."
