J Brand Jeans: Why Angelina Jolie & I Love Them

11/08/2006 at 05:00 PM ET

Upon her arrival in India to begin filming The Mighty Heart, Angelina Jolie realized she had underpacked. She sent a fashion SOS back to the states to get more pairs of her favorite J. Brand jeans shipped to her (the 14″ cigarette leg in Ink and Jett). Who knew I had so much in common with Angelina — I, too, am a terrible underpacker and addicted to J. Brand jeans. I have three pairs now — the 10″ skinny in Ink(wearing them tucked into boots right now!), the 12″ in grey, and the exact 14″ jeans in Jett as Angelina (well, we don’t exactly wear the same size). The 14″ (ankle circumference) perfectly bridge the gap between the super-skinny jeans and my old beat-up bootcuts. Each pair has the perfect amount of stretch and no logos or branding on them — even celebrities want a little bit of anonymity in their lives. A word of warning: wash the black jeans before you wear them with a white shirt. And yes, I did learn that the hard way — hope Angelina didn’t have to, as well! — Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

I think all women should have a better outlook on themselves, and stop trying to measure up to what is just a created icon, sure she is beautiful, but so are all women and all shapes and sizes. The jeans are great!

I do not care for skinny jeans at all. I think they are the worst trend of the moment!

Yeah, but these jeans aren’t as tight at the ankles as the normal skinny jeans. I actually really like the cut of these jeans. If only they were a liiiiittle bit higher waisted though. I hate when jeans are so low that when you bend over you’re showing the world your buttcrack. Not attractive.

Angelina could make a paper sack look good. The rest of us hoewever probably can’t make these jeans look quite as good.
