Double denim quartet B*Witched should take home an award for double denim if there was one!

The band was the first act ever to have their first four singles all debut at number one in the UK.

Their debut album contained hits like C'est la Vie and Rollercoaster, which helped their self-titled album go double platinum in the UK and platinum in the US. Since splitting in 2002, the group re-formed in 2012 and still tours to this day. Double denim is still alive!

7 She Saw It. She Bought It. Ariana Grande.

Ariana Grande has had a crazy few years but one or two things she's been able to control is her image and her amazing music. Grande not only released her fourth studio album Sweetener last year which contained massive singles like 'No Tears Left To Cry', 'God Is A Woman', and 'Breathin'' but just months later, she teased another album.

That album came out February 2019 and is named after the lead single 'Thank U, Next' which topped the charts. The second single 7 Rings also was also a chart topper. In the photo above, Ariana is wearing an oversized denim shirt while wearing her hair in her signature ponytail style that has become her biggest fashion statement.

6 So Fresh, So Clean. Drake.

Drake is by far one of rap music's most successful acts. The hitmaker who was born in Toronto, Canada is somewhat the Michael Jackson of the streaming world. His breakthrough mixtape, So Far Gone, contained the successful Best I Ever Had and ever since then, Drizzy has been racking up the hits.

Drake's sense of style has always been pretty swag but never over the top. Here, he is seen to be wearing a plain white denim jacket with a t-shirt underneath paired with some light blue jeans. He has accessorized his outfit with a necklace, and of course, his facial hair is sharp and neat.

5 Fashion Killa, A$AP Rocky

A$AP Rocky's image and music have always been a big part of his brand. He has blended the two together well as his main persona and always comes out on top. The two-time Grammy-nominated rapper has released three studio albums, the latest being 2018's TESTING which was a global top 10 success.

Rocky has been seen at many Fashion Week events around the world. The denim outfit above with an abundance of gabber and raver imagery on the jacket and pants came from Dior's Fashion Week season. A$AP wears the set with a black turtleneck and HARDIOR necklace, also from designer Dior. All Dior everythang!

4 Denim Couple, The Weeknd And Bella Hadid

Bella Hadid and The Weeknd's relationship might be on and off at times, but something that isn't rocky is their outfits. Model Bella Hadid has been seen wearing a number of denim outfits in her time but this relaxed number looks super comfy and chilled. She is wearing a dark denim jacket with pants to match and a bright crop style top.

Her boyfriend Abel, who goes by The Weeknd, is wearing a light blue denim jacket with graffiti/doodle designs on it. The pair of them are both enjoying their ice cream while scoring 10s across the board. Must be nice.

3 Spicing Things Up, Dua Lipa


Pop star Dua Lipa has been on a roll recently. She became the first female artist to receive five nominations in a single year at the Brit Awards last year and won two. She won two Grammy Awards in February 2019 including the Best New Artist award and is up for four more BRIT Awards this year. The New Rules hitmaker has always made her image and fashion just as big a priority as her music.

Her stylist Lorenzo Posocco is responsible for a lot of the outfits she wears in magazine spreads, red carpets, and award shows. The pair clearly work well together and this denim number is no exception. The stripey suit jacket and pants combo is a bold statement as Lipa wears it with a crop top which shows off her incredible figure.

2 Let Love Rule, Lenny Kravitz

Rockstar Lenny Kravitz is the king of cool. Like his music, his image is always changing. His debut album Let Love Rule released in 1989 was featured in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. His latest album Raise Vibration was released September 2018 and is being promoted with a world tour.

Like on the album cover for Raise Vibration, Kravitz is wearing a denim shirt like in the photo above. It seems to be a thing for him at the moment. He wears the shirt with big round reflective sunglasses, a tribal necklace, and his sleeves slightly rolled up so you can see the ink on his wrist. Did we say the king of cool already?

1 VMA Icon, Janet Jackson

It's Janet, AKA Miss Jackson. Living legend Janet Jackson is for sure still in control of her work, releasing music and touring worldwide. Her latest single Made For Now featuring Daddy Yankee has gone on to become an international hit as she recorded a version of the song in Spanish. The single also topped the US Dance Club Songs chart.

The photo above where Jackson is seen wearing denim dungarees is from the MTV VMAs in 1994 where she was awarded Female Video for If. Her iconic braids, which were also seen in her big screen movie Poetic Justice with 2Pac, are still a huge fashion statement to this day. The black cap is giving us Rythm Nation vibes too.
