Denim Dames: Fashion’s Trendsetters Who Made Jeans A Classic

If you're like us, finding the ultimate pair of jeans can be a toughie. From the baggy boyfriend cut to a sleek pair of cigarette pants, there seems to be a new slew of styles, sizes, and cuts each and every season. But thanks to a few leading ladies who paved the way for the perfect pantaloon, finding a denim staple isn't so hard. From SJP's skinnies to Kate Moss' cut-offs, we've rounded up three influential denim muses that set the trends for a denim revolution we'll never forget. 

1. Audrey Hepburn
Thanks to her ladylike charm and iconic style, Audrey Hepburn is the classic go-to gal for fashion inspiration. But it was the denim cigarette pants that stole the spotlight as her character Holly Golightly sweetly sang the musical medley "Moon River" in one of the most memorable moments from the film, Breakfast At Tiffany's.


2. Kate Moss
Kate the Great has the God-given talent to make anything look good...seriously. She reinvented the trashy, teeny-tiny denim cut-offs into a trend that had everyone slashing away at last year's styles. 

3. Sarah Jessica Parker
A fashion chameleon, Carrie Bradshaw is known to take quite a few risks when it comes to her closet, and has worn a few questionable outfits. But if there's one signature statement that she made famous during her stint on Sex And The City, it's the skinny jean. Now that's one piece from SJP's archive we're willing to steal.
