Best of 2004: Great Jeans

Where to get the denim Gwyneth sports.

Where do you find Gwyneth Paltrow's beloved Blue Cult jeans and that staple of the red carpet, Sevens? Nordstrom (several Maryland and Virginia locations; nordstrom.com) has the area's widest selection of of-the-moment jeans plus salespeople who know which styles flatter what bodies (stretch is more forgiving). If they don't have your size, they'll order it. For shoppers not blessed with the legs of a glamazon, Nordstrom does free alterations; a technique that keeps the original hems costs $12.
