Which Denim Looks Are Over?

10/11/2006 at 02:19 PM ET

Jeans are a classic, all-American staple, so they should be pretty tough to screw up, right? Wrong, as we discovered in our Denim Looks to Lose Gallery. From Tara Reid’s too-low two-tones (left) to Kelly Clarkson‘s mysterious zippers (hidden thigh pockets?), there are plenty of denim looks to lose. Fall’s hottest jeans are darker, slimmer, and sleeker than ever before. Tell us: What denim looks do you think are totally over? What are you sick of seeing?

Angie on

I like her jeans! They are better than regular “skinny” jeans, by far. I like her tank, too, but she needs to lose the hat & shoes. If she had different shoes, and maybe some accessories, she’d have a cute outfit!

laura on

I LOVE those jeans they are so cool!

pepperjack on

trashy. and looks like she’s working really hard at just walking.

Sarah on

I think that what’s really over is skinny jeans. They’re supposed to be the new thing, but they have absolutely no staying power. They are acceptable (not good, just acceptable) for the 2% of the population who are size 4 or smaller. But for the rest of us, they just look rediculous and completely unflattering. I’m sick of hearing about the skinny jeans. Let’s move on…

Jennifer on

I couldn’t agree with you more Sarah! Not many people can pull off “skinny” jeans. I got rid of my jeans after the 80’s for a reason! They need to go. And I really do not like Tara’s look at all. Those jeans are awful.

Kelly on

I think she’s having a hard time walking because she’s drunk, as usual!

Ash on

wow!!! cool jeans but come on you know she’s drunk as hell. She looks a mess

Precious on

those jeans are soo OOO-GLAYYY!

j on

gross, just like her.

cate on

omg i cant believe some of you people actually like those jeans!! theyre discusting! ok the two tones is just ridiculous. i dont ever remember that being in style (and if it was, its way out now!) and the low-cut? she looks like she should be standing on the corner.

magarita on

i think that those jeans are repulisive. i would never let those touch me!!!!!!!!!!

elisa stapp on

Those pants look awful on her!!! no waist, no hips!

wrong choice!

Maybe those jeans might look better in someone like nicole ritchie, keira knightley….

Juls on

i realize that slim is in, but i don’t think everyone looks good in those super skinny jeans. i found some great jeans at a “jeans party” in ny. this company called Beija-Flor is selling Brazilian jeans that fit really well! I think their website is http://www.beijaflorjeans.com

Marnia on

Yes another put together look by Tara Reid she is drunk more then sober so she can’t be trusted!

Mya on

First of all, those jeans are as trashy and ugly as Tara. And second of all, I totally agree, skinny jeans should bo OVER!!. I weight 115 pounds and don’t consider myself fat. Still with those stupid jeans I look like a giant sausage. I hate them!!

jordandunnrox on

i don’t like the different shades of blue. it looks to childlike. but if that is what you are going for, g for it
!!!! lol!!!

hart braka on

in disagree with jennifer and sarah u both probably don’t like the skinny jean look because u could never pull it off

micheleeee. on

ummmm. I like the jeans. But they look a little weird on Tara’s yield sign shape.

I also like the shoes!

MARIE odabas on

eww she looks like a hag no matter what she wares, she needs to get a life

Becky on

Those 2 tone jeans make her look like she peed herself, they are not flattering. The skinny jeans looks good on skinny people but not eveyrone is skinny, I have some junk in the trunk and I know i should not be wearing them but you know there are some BIG girls out there that will be squeezing themselves into these jeans. EWWWW. I will stick with my boot cut

fanny on


Jackie on

those jeans are HIDEOUS. it suits her though. just make sure her top is on right!

lily on

please tara get new jeans!!!!!!! those r the most discusting jeans i have ever seen in my life (and i hae seen a lot of pretty bad 1s)

Beauty on

I think Tara looks great in wahtever she wears,anyway the jeans were a lil tight,even if she has a beautiful figure,we can’t deny it,right.

Beauty on

she looks amazing

Beauty on

I really think we must use a mode that really fits us,is not to be cool but uncomfortable,the thing is if we use something it must reflect our personallity,wheter they might accept it or not,thats just the escence of what we really are,thats it.

Kim on

I thought Tara was so pretty in the first American Pie movie. She really let herself go.

Jen on

Two tone, low rise, skinny jeans. Not a good combo. It just looks trashy.

erica on

She looks AMAZINGly bad


…what’s with the really RED guy in the backk?


M on

Do not understand how these female celebrities make all this money and then they walk out of the house looking a mess. I do not even go to the store w/ out make up on. What makes celebrity life change someone to where they have no self respect?

Kristina on

I feel sorry for her, she has a drug and drinking problem.

Leah on

They are sooo last season. Enough allready.

lisa divirgilio on

Poor Tara think she’s getting a bad rap these days and kinda feel sory for her,,why not party your head off,, did’nt we all do that when we were her age I know I did, give thegirl a break,,she is pretty and the press is mean with her, move on and destroy someone eles life, like Paris Ho Hilton.

Abby on

omfg! those jeans are horrible! I would never ever wear those! Never! She needs a makeover! Despretly

Andrea on

Half of her jeans look wet. Maybe I’m just seeing things. However, they’re hideous. Low cut jeans are out of style, and tacky.

Erin on

Tara’s outfit brought to you by Wal-Mart.

As Laura from “Project Runway” would say, there’s some serious ugly going on here.

Bertha Scoggins on

I dont’t care for tight jeans on ladies, but I love jeans to fit tight on men.

Cynthia on

a truly square human being, hahahaha

christine on

someone made a comment she looks like she’s having a hard time walking but the truth for me is if i had all those reporters snapping shots at me i’d want to make sure i didn’t fall flat on my face either

Jen Stone on

Tara Reid’s whole look is OVER!!

amanda on

don’t want to hurt anybodys feelings, but those pants are by far the ugliest pants i have ever seen. they arent even childlike, cause i wouldn’t let my child wear them……..

Francisco on

Those pants are hideous, I think Tara is trying to revive the mid or late seventies denim. I think my father had a pair of jeans just like those.
What next polyester leisure suits.

Wilma on

If somebody looks GOOD in an article of clothing, why not adorn her body?

Wilma on

If a woman looks GOOD in an article of clothing, why should she not just adorn her body? There are too many overweight women in the USA; I personally like the way this person looks and admire her for her ability to maintain a certain weight.
