Balmain Jeans worth the Green.

Balmain jeans have hit the fashion circuit like there's no tomorrow. Well, for some of you interested in a pair of the french fashion house's denim, there may be no tomorrow, as the jeans are flying off the rack at record speeds.
Christophe Decarnin's designs were first seen on Paris' fashion elite including Vogue's Fashion Director, Emmanuelle Alt, top model Natasha Poly and mini pop sensation Kylie Minogue. Now they've made their way across the pond and have been seen on the likes of Lindsay Lohan, Rihanna, Heidi Klum, Victoria Beckham, Ellen Pompeo, Nicole Richie and Kate Moss.

The appeal of Balmain jeans comes from their worn and torn "lived in" look which gives them that extra edge which designer Decarnin constantly aims for. However, the fact that these jeans are constantly sold out isn't the only reason they are so difficult to obtain. Some have scoffed at the US $2000 + price tag which might also act as a deterrent. No matter how you feel about this look and price tag, Balmain jeans are the hottest investment of 2009.

You can get these style in more affordable versions on in Rockstar Denim. They are super cute...and don't have to cost as much as a car.
