This Forgotten Skinny Jean Trend Is Now Celeb Approved

Emily Ratajkowski’s sartorial takeover of Cannes has delivered an impressive lineup of fashion looks evoking screen siren sensibilities—namely her spot-on channeling of French film icon Brigitte Bardot. But day one saw a decidedly more casual approach to Mediterranean dressing, with Ratajkowski sporting an off-the-shoulder long-sleeve crop top with high-waisted skinny jeans.

For Cannes, Ratajkowski stuck to her signature high-waisted jeans formula—pairing her denim with a black top and heels—but this time she took a notable departure from her go-to jeans. Typically, Ratajkowski opts for a light-blue wash of denim, a favorite of fashion girls when they aren’t wearing black. However, for this occasion, Ratajkowski switched it up with a pair of gray jeans, a color we don’t often see making the rounds anymore for It-girl dressing.
