There's something about a pair of great jeans can make your cold-weather wear entirely effortless. So, as we head toward Fall, we're admittedly a little obsessed with our denim pieces. Along those lines, certain icons come to mind when we think easy denim, women who epitomize the perfect fit with silhouettes that flatter and styles that feel entirely their own. Think Claudia Schiffer in her signature '70s cut, Cher giving hers a bohemian spin, and Brooke Shields and her world-famous Calvins. There's more in store — from Jane Birkin's flares to Jennifer Aniston's boyfriend jeans. This crew provides the style cues to take you straight into Fall. Click through to get inspired by 20 of our favorite denim icons.
When you find something that works for you sartorially, you have to hang on to it; whether it's a hemline, color combination, or favorite silhouette, some signature styles are just too good to abandon. Not only is it a reality for us mere mortals, but it also holds true for our favorite supermodels. Former catwalkers like Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, and Naomi Campbell all have their trademark styling techniques — and even though they may not work the runway much these days, they still flaunt their symbolic sophistication and classic clothing choices on many a red carpet. Click through to see 10 supermodels that know what works for them and aren't going to give it up.

At the Cannes premiere of This Must Be the Place, legendary catwalker Claudia Schiffer and runway stunner Anja Rubik went head to head on the red carpet, both clad in sexy black gowns — and both with little left to the imagination. Claudia sported a lace bustier Dolce & Gabbana gown, accessorizing with layered diamond necklaces and a pair of black pumps. Anja's dress may have been full length and long sleeved, but it wasn't exactly modest. The Emilio Pucci gown was covered in sequins, and featured an ornate pattern made up of tiny holes. Both models looked gorgeous — but who did black peekaboo best?

Gwen Stefani kept her Cannes Film Festival fashion coming this evening at the premiere of Sean Penn's This Must Be the Place, choosing a black-and-white gown with strategic cutouts. The singer went solo for the red-carpet debut after her husband, Gavin Rossdale, caught a flight out of nearby Nice this morning. Gavin and Gwen were together last night, though, for the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS fundraiser along with Kanye West, Bar Refaeli, and other stars. Sean was also by himself for today's unveiling of the film, without girlfriend Scarlett Johansson. Gwen's cycled through a collection of gorgeous gowns and dramatic outfits during her time on the French Riviera, but her trip hasn't been a completely formal affair — Gwen wore a bikini while enjoying the sun on a yacht with Gavin, Zuma, and Kingston this week.
Samantha Cameron played host to A-list stars at 10 Downing Street last night. She held a cocktail party as part of London Fashion Week, and hot footed it back from the starry front row of the Burberry show to welcome guests like Sienna Miller, Emma Watson, Kate Moss, and Helena Bonham Carter. Kate had Mario Testino on her arm, while Helena was with Tim Burton, and Sienna had sister Savannah for company. Although the guests are easy to recognise, they still had to prove their identities! Click through to see the other partygoers, including Anna Wintour, Claudia Schiffer, Sir Philip Green, the Le Bons and Jemma Kidd.
Oh to be a fly on the wall at this school in West London this morning! Claudia Schiffer and Elle Macpherson had a quick chat as they dropped their respective children off at school. Perhaps Elle was inquiring about Claudia's shiny new blue shoulder bag? The patent satchel is one of my favourite pieces from the Mulberry Spring collection and is called Edie (£664). It's available in two different sizes and in electric blue, oak and black. Are you a fan of Claudia's arm candy?
