For her 24th birthday, Gigi Hadid held a denim-themed party at the uber-chic L’Avenue at Saks. The supermodel wore high-waisted straight leg Levi 501s with a light wash trucker jacket and a white crop top. Little sister Bella also went with an all-denim look for the event in a three-piece ensemble which featured straight-leg jeans, a matching oversized jacket and a denim bustier.
And while the model sisters offer a modern-day reworking of the jean-on-jean trend, the ‘Canadian Tuxedo’ has been around for decades. For a performance in 1978, Blondie frontwoman Debbie Harry wore a cropped denim jacket teamed with indigo jeans tucked into knee-high boots. In 1991, Hollywood star Drew Barrymore wore a baggy trucker jacket and washed-out blue jeans to the Toy Soldiers film premiere in La. And nobody will ever the forget the all-denim ensembles worn by then it-couple Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake to the 2001 American Music Awards.
