If you had told me this time last year that I would be selecting Katie Holmes as the Celebrity Denim Icon 2009 I wouldn’t have believed you. In the previous three years that Denimology has been running she had appeared only two times and was hardly even on the denim radar. However something happened in 2009 and suddenly she was photographed wearing a different pair of totally on-trend jeans each week. In total she appeared in Denimology over 20 times and was responsible (along with buddy Victoria Beckham) for the rise of the boyfriend jean. She was seen in all the hottest styles whether it be ripped jeans from Current/Elliott, boyfriend jeans from PRPS or skinny jeans from J Brand and there were even rumours that she would be launching her own denim collection. So for services to denim in 2009 Katie Holmes is the Celebrity Denim Icon of the Year.
