"If the butt fits, wear them! And once you find your perfect jeans, buy several pairsin different washesto last you."
KNOWN FOR: Her signature python hobo bags, seen on fashionistas' arms (Kate Hudson, Sienna, and Reese are fans).
ON DENIM: "At 14, I finally rebelled against my parents' no-denim rule and bought myself a light blue, oversize, straight-cut pair. I wouldn't go near them today."
DREAM PAIR: "Since two years ago, when Rag & Bone made the Devi jean for me, it's all I wear. I have it in 10 washes."
WEARS IT WITH: "Tailored tops and statement accessories. They take denim to the luxury level."
HER TAKE: "When I was creating my very first python hobo, my muse was a classic girl wearing jeans and a T-shirt. I provided the posh accent."
ON RISE: "My favorite style for work is just under the waist. Nothing too trendy; it just needs to be comfortable when I'm down on the floor with materials strewn everywhere."
CLASSIC SPIN: "When worn with jeans, even super-high-end accessories and the perfect-cut blazer won't look over-the-top."
DEVI'S STYLE TIPS:
- Stick to a few straightforward denim mainstayskey for a clean look.
- If you find a new favorite, buy two: Get one long enough to wear with heels, and tailor the other to go with your best flats.
