Get the Look: 5 Celebrities who Bared Their Knees in Ripped Jeans

While some celebrities prefer to stay away from ripped jeans that focus on exposing the knees for fear of having their “knee face” criticized, some of the riskier ones couldn’t care less. The exposed knee ripped jeans trend can get pretty awkward if not done properly, often resulting to a questioning as to whether said celebrity still has enough money to buy herself a decent pair of jeans.

Luckily, there were some who did the trend justice.

1. Leona Lewis

We are personally not fans of the mommy-jeans-and-sneakers combination because the proportion it creates is that of one who was stunted at puberty. But seeing that Leona Lewis was currently traveling when this photo was taken, we decided to be a bit more understanding. Paired with the right heels, this blazer-and-denim look can easily go from the office to a casual dinner out with friends.

2. Heidi Klum

It’s pretty hard to pull off the ripped jeans trend in a chic all-white ensemble while around children who are happily kicking up dirt, but Heidi Klum is not your ordinary everyday mom (okay, so she has the advantage of being a supermodel). We love how she paired her skinnies with sneakers and a comfortable looking sweater. She doused her outfit with simple silver jewelry and a clutch to take her look from plain to casual sophistication.

3. Ashley Benson

Ashley Benson inserts a little bit of Western flair into her bare knee look by pairing her dark jeans with an oversized plaid shirt, fedora hat, and suede boots. She chose a structured black tote to balance out the country flavor with a bit of the city. Accessorize the look with minimalistic silver jewelry to give the boyish look a slender feel.

4. Jenna Dewan Tatum

If there’s one word that comes to mind when seeing Mrs. Channing’s outfit, it’s the word fresh. We admire how Jenna Dewan Tatum was able to pull together frayed denims, a pleated top, and suede gladiator sandals (definitely not your typical combination) and emerge unscathed. She perfected the look right down to her tortoiseshell sunglasses and simple gold cuffs.

5. Alessandra Ambrosio

If you’re as tall as Alessandra Ambrosio, then by all means, throw on a bunch of oversized clothes and a pair of flat sandals while throwing caution to the wind. For the rest of us mere human beings, however, a little precaution should be taken when picking out oversized clothing. Ironically, the oversized trend needs to be just the right size, otherwise you may end up looking like your clothes swallowed you whole. Pay attention to the proportions you create by using the rule of thirds.
