2006 has been a pretty incredible year for J Brand Jeans – they have gone from being a start up jeans label to being the hottest denim brand on the planet. In the last 12 months it seems every A List female celebrity has at some point or another been snapped in a pair of J Brands. Their celeb client list includes Angelina Jolie, Kate Moss, Kate Beckinsale, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mischa Barton, Kate Winslett, Jessica Simpson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lindsay Lohan and Reese Witherspoon. In the last few weeks alone Michelle Trachtenberg (see below) was seen promoting her new movie Black Christmas on MTV’s TRL in a pair of black J Brands, whilst Nicole Richie (see above) was photographed in an extremely skinny dark blue pair shortly before being arrested for drunk driving. Wherever you looked in the last 12 months it seems that someone was wearing a dark and sexy pair of J Brand Jeans and for that reason I am making them the very first Denimology Denim Brand Of The Year 2006.
