Fresh from Katy Perry and the rapper Riff Raff showing up at the MTV Video Music Awards in matching jean outfits reminiscent of Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears circa 2001, Miranda Kerr casually sported a look that has long been considered a fashion no-no as part of her new 7 For All Mankind ad campaign.

Ralph Lauren’s summer line has two takes on the denim suit, also known as the “Texas Tuxedo”. And among the many celebrities sporting this look lately: Kim Kardashian (in plunging denim shirt and jeans), Rihanna and Beyonce (both in skirt and jacket) and Jessica Alba (in a twist, pairing a denim skirt with denim heels).
