Painted on jeans are the epitome of sexiness, but not too many ladies can pull them off (in more ways than one). Now there's a new brand coming to town, Denim Junkie, bringing their literally painted-on jeans to the elite few with $400-$2,000 to drop on custom pants. The in-house artist, Roberto, gingerly hand-paints each pair through a magnifying glass. And if you don't see anything you like in the pre-made selections, most of which are inspired by old Hollywood horror flicks, you can request your own design. So now you can rock that temporary-garter-belt look from the Spring 2010 Chanel runway without having to scrub your skin with rubbing alcohol.
