Stars who make double denim look cool

Published

Beyonce has been dabbling in the dangerous world of denim on denim with seriously impressive results.

There was absolutely no suggestion of Prairie cowboys, B*Witched or that time Britney and Justin turned up to the American Music Awards in matching all-denim outfits, in the Flawless singer's distressed Frame pencil skirt and short, slouchy denim jacket emblazoned with Chanel pins.

She teamed the look with big hair, round shades and some full-on posing, naturally.

Bey's not the only celeb who gives head to toe denim a good name...

  • Beyonce

    Showing us how DD is done on her Instagram page.

  • Kate Bosworth

    The actress-come-style icon makes this look work by mixing up her blues and teaming her flattering skinny jeans with some sharp heels.

    New Look has a similar version to Kate's shirt for £17.99.

  • Rosie Fortescue

    The Made in Chelsea star does preppy denim ever so well. She's teamed her button-up shirt with ripped jeans, blue suede loafers and a beige jacket.

    Asos currently has a boyfriend shirt with shadow pocket up for grabs for £12.

  • Bar Refaeli

    The model is a serial DD-er and often throws on a big scarf to break up the look.

    This summery feather print scarf from Topshop (£18) looks the business with blue denim.

  • Alessandra Ambrosio

    Alessandra Ambrosio clashes her blues but keeps her accessories tan.

    Jigsaw has a similar tan leather belt on sale for £25.

  • Jessica Alba

    The actress breaks up her denim suit with a bright red top (we're enjoying the retro boot cut jeans).

    Get a pair from H&M for £29.99

  • Miranda Kerr

    Model Miranda veers dangerously close to country singer territory with this pale denim ensemble, but by keeping her top buttons unpopped and wearing animal print sandals, she's saved the look.

    We like these super soft skinnies from Diesel (£130)

  • Miley Cyrus

    With her country singer roots, double denim is especially tricky territory for pop star rebel Miley, so she's keeping it as edgy as she can with an oversize acid wash jacket and tiny denim hotpants.

    Find a battered acid wash jacket on eBay or throw some paint on this £29.99 Missguided version.

  • Ashley Greene

    It's a simple denim combo made brilliant with matte coral heels.

    Kurt Geiger has some similar sweet red courts reduced to £49.

  • Rihanna

    We're cheating here as Rihanna is actually wearing triple - yes triple - denim. And still looks cooler than everyone else, despite her bizarre shirt-under-shorts combo.

    If you fancy recreating the look, cover your white Daisy Dukes in some sew on studs from haberdasher store shirt-under-shorts look, GUR.

  • Emily VanCamp

    The Brothers & Sisters actress works her DD with a nicely grungey spin.

    Levis' does a badass dip bleach version for £60.

  • Julia Restoin-Roitfeld

    If anyone can do double denim it's Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, the French art director and model, and daughter of Carine Roitfeld and Christian Restoin.

    Espirit has a similar stretch denim mini for £39.

  • Stacy Keibler

    The WWE star shows that multiple denim is a summer option in a slouchy, knotted shirt that cleverly matches the turn ups on her shorts.

    Warehouse has these beautiful high-waisters for £26.

  • Cara Delevingne

    Okay, so not technically DD but Cara looks so good we couldn't resist drawing your attention to these oversized dungarees with a trench coat and heels we couldn't resist.

    Rokit has a huge range of denim dungarees here.

  • Naomi Watts

    Again, it's debatable whether jumpsuits are DD territory, but we had to throw in Naomi's awesome Chambray number - especially as it's now on sale for £58.
