No More Skinny Jeans for Kate?

09/18/2006 at 10:59 AM ET

Kate Moss was the center of attention yesterday in London when she turned up to attend an event for Topshop (right), fueling speculation that she has agreed to design a line for the store (loved by everyone from Moss to Kate Middleton). As much as we would love to see a collaboration between Kate and our beloved Topshop, our attention is totally focused on her jeans — specifically, her faded bell-bottom jeans. Not only is Moss always one step ahead of every fashion trend (she was even named “The Trendsetter” as one of PEOPLE’s Best Dressed), but she was one of the first to rock the super-dark, super-skinny jeans (left, in April), making tight, black denim a signature of her style. Now that Kate is wearing light flares again, does this mean that skinny jeans are on their last legs? Which look do you prefer?

I prefer the flare leg. She just looks better in them and she is the queen of skinny. I always try to keep an open mind when it comes to the trends each year but there are sometimes when you just gotta say NO! Example: the poncho. I also refuse to wear the skinny jeans.

Why can’t both styles of jeans be popular at the same time?? Life would be boring if you could only wear one style per season!

I feel that the super skinny jeans are not flattering on even the skinniest person.. Even Kate Moss looks like a too fat sausage in a too tight casting.
The faded blue slightly flared jeans actually make her look thinner/trimmer

I hope the flare is coming back!!! So much more flattering–even on skinny girls.

I prefer the flare leg. It is also nice to notice the waistline is a little higher on them as well – a trend I hope will stick! I have grown quite tired of seeing so many bums!

I prefer the flare. I remember when they first came out in the late ’90s. I like how they look, and I hope they stay around again.

Jenn on

The flares look *so* much better.

I think the flare legs look tons better! I agree with the first person,sometimes you just got to say no to trends. Skinny jeans are the worst thing ever invented.

Bunky on

I thought the whole idea of jeans was that you got to be comfortable and still look reasonably presentable. When jeans start constricting the blood flow, I think that’s pretty much lost. Also it makes them look like sweatpants (albeit tight sweatpants).

Query: why is Kate wearing sunglasses in the picture that looks like it was taken at night, and no eyewear during the day? Maybe along with the skinny jeans Kate is trying to introduce a trend where models bump into things?

SKINNY JEANS ARE NOT HOT! I think that they make 99% of the population look like an ice cream cone: skinny on the bottom and hugely round on top.
