Just caught wind of this one … While this is a place to support and embrace the denim-worshipping community, sometimes bad ones make headlines and we have to call it out. Katy Perry walked the red carpet at tonight’s MTV VMAs in this number. We love Katy, despite some questionable wardrobe choices (tonight being the most recent), but seriously … was this a joke? Was she not Wide Awake when she got dressed? Was it a throwback to the ever-mocked Britney/JT denim disaster, or are they trying to top it? If it’s the latter, we may have a winner. Regardless of fashion sense – or lack thereof – we love Katy and the message she sends out to young women and little girls. She’s a firework, and we’re forever grateful.

Ryan Adams Rocks the Newport Folk Festival in a Canadian Tuxedo
Thank you, NPR, which posted this photo of singer/songwriter Ryan Adams doing his thing at last weekend’s Newport Folk Festival. As you can imagine, this folk fest was littered with many amazing double denim looks – it’s kind of their uniform. See more on the Newport Folk Festival’s Facebook page: guaranteed to cure any case of the Mondays …. so much denim.
Listen to Ryan Adams’ complete set from the NFF here.

Pharrell Williams in a Canadian Tuxedo …
makes me happy … (sorry. had to.)
Forgotten Canadian Tuxedos From Coachella
Gah! All that waiting online Friday for passes to Coachella 2015, reminded me I had spotted a few last month at Coachella 2014. I can’t imagine how I could’ve forgotten …
Larry (pictured above) braved the crowds with his broken leg/wheelchair in a Zara jacket and H&M Jorts.
And apparently I ran into Shaun Cruda who’s rocking a Levi’s jacket, H&M top and a Jesus piece (apparently I failed to note who made the shorts) in what looks like the Gobi Tent.
Beyonce Spotted In Denim Jumpsuit After Solange Story Broke
Sitting pretty next to Jay Z at the Nets game last night. The two even took a few moments to chat with LeBron James. Anyone else as obsessed as we are with this story? Thoughts? Theories? At least Bey looks good in her denim (and anything, really).
#MusicMonday Canadian Tuxedo
We came across this unbelievably amaze video from California duo/real-life couple Pomplamoose. This mashup of my faves – Royals by Lorde, California Love by 2Pac and Loser by Beck. This video was shot in one take with a single projector. Oh, and Nataly Dawn is rocking a pretty nice Canadian Tux. Enjoy!
Rihanna – Undisputed Queen of the Canadian Tux
What can we say? This girl just loves her double denim. Can you blame her? We’re giving Rihanna props for upping her Canadian Tuxedo game since we last reported her in this get up. Seen above is Rihanna on a mother-daughter shopping trip in LA rocking a destroyed denim pencil skirt and denim top with Chanel lapel pin – and we all know Uncle Karl is all about the denim on denim.
Avicii and Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren at it again
Last June, we offered an exclusive first look at Swedish DJ Avicii’s first campaign with Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren, and we’re happy to see this happy marriage is still in a honeymoon phase with the recent release of their Spring 2013 Lookbook. Amaze double denim throughout.
Rihanna dons Double Denim (and it sucks!)
We all know Rihanna is no stranger to the Canadian Tuxedo, but this double denim ensemble has us questioning her taste in style almost as much as we do her taste in men. RiRi was seen rocking denim over denim at her Rihanna for River Island at London Fashion Week. Gross.
INXS “Kick” Canadian Tux Fest
Needed a little vinyl action tonight. INXS seemed to fit the bill. Forgot about the denim fest on the “Kick” cover. Mystify …. Mystify me.
“‘Cause we all have wings, but some us don’t know why.”
Best post INXS version of “Never Tear Us Apart” found here. (You’re welcome.)
