Thank Pharrell and Helen Lasichanh for solidifying its place.
Guys, things are getting a bit out of hand. Couples’ denim-on-denim keeps popping up on awards show red carpets, and there’s no sign of it slowing down.
Then, for the 2014 MTV VMAs, Katy Perry, with date Riff Raff, paid homage to Britney and Justin in matching Versace-designed custom denim outfits. That evening she tweeted to Spears, “I did my best impression, hope u likey!” to which Spears responded, “Just when I thought the denim dress had retired….you bring it back! You looked amazing tonight bb 😉”
Which brings us to last night, when Pharrell and wife Helen Lasichanh took duo denim out of joke territory and into full-blown fashion mode. Red carpet Canadian tuxedos have a bit of a bad rap, but I guess if they must continue to exist, this is the way to do it: the cut of denim, wash, and fit are all spot-on.
Let’s consider the couples’ look a *mic drop* of sorts, and never speak of this trend again.
