Melissa Curtin covers charity and style related events and loves to cover LA's best in beauty, fashion, and culture. She is an educator who recently returned to the classroom to motivate and inspire third graders at a private school in Pacific Palisades. In 2012, she launched an educational T-shirt line called Wear2learn. When she is not working out, hiking a canyon, or at the beach, she is writing. Her latest dream come true has been travel writing for Johnny Jet.

After teaching in the Maryland public school system for almost a decade, she left the conservative East Coast environment in Washington, DC for West Coast living. Eager for adventure, inner growth, and a new environment, she packed her car and took to the open road on her own landing in her new home - Hollywood, California. As a Connecticut Yankee at heart, she has now lived in Los Angeles for six years surrounded by the stars.

Melissa graduated from Gettysburg College with a double major in psychology and art history. Soon after, she earned a Master's Degree in education. Melissa traveled around the world on Semester at Sea, and earned a Fulbright Scholarship which enabled her to teach in England. A lust for travel and learning has fueled her globe trotting ever since. Some of her favorite destinations are Costa Rica, Thailand, Fiji, Morocco, Vietnam, Belgium, Italy, Sicily, Prague, Egypt, Australia, Greece, and Paris.

Los Angeles has won over her heart. She is constantly taking advantage of what LA LA Land has to offer - new boutiques and restaurants, finding great deals, discovering new hikes and beaches, music, and West Coast fashion.

Samantha Harris Launches The New Samantha Jean With DL1961 Premium Denim

Samantha Harris, beautiful host and stylish mom from Entertainment Tonight, launched her new jean, the “Samantha” jean with DL1961 Premium Denim Tuesday night at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood.  Harris is an active mom who discussed the need to create the world’s most flexible jean that is also super flattering.  Samantha collaborated with the DL1961 Team to design the jeans that are crafted with revolutionary XFIT fabric that gives you the ultimate fit and shape.

Samantha has two daughters and after struggling for years to find the perfect maternity jean, she discovered DL1961’s maternity jean when pregnant with her second child.  She was determined to create the jean she always searched for – classic fit, comfort, and quality instruction.  Harris worked carefully with DL1961 to rework the fit of the waistband, inseam, and back pocket placement resulting in a clean and universally flattering jean that is effortlessly chic and perfect for all women.

I can attest after putting on my snug pair of Samantha slim straight jeans. The waistline is snug but stretchy, but not so your underwear is showing when you bend over.  The 4-Way stretch jeans will not sag, bag, or lose shape.  The Samantha jean looks fabulous rolled up with short boots, with heals, or tucked in some cute winter boots.  The new jeans will also come out in some amazing colors in October too.

Celebrities that attended the DL1961 Launch Party at the Chateau Marmont included “Footloose” star Julianne Hough who rushed from “Dancing With the Stars” to support her former castmate Samantha Harris, Entourage star Perrey Reeves,  Julie Benz, star of A Gifted Man, Autumn Reeser, Kym Johnson, Anna Trebunskaya, and more!

DL1961 also has many other styles, such as the skinny Britney jean with little slits on the bottom, the legging Emma jean, the slimboot Cindy jean, as well as the slim straight Kate jean.  The DL1961 Jeans come in every shape and style imaginable – ankle, boot, boyfriend, sexy slouchy, trouser, wide leg, maternity, and more.  I am also loving all of their adorable jean shorts.  Please check out all of their styles on their website. Perfect for summer and winter with heels or boots.

The Samantha jean retails for around $168 and will be available nationally at Bloomingdales and Shopbop.com, and globally at www.DL1961.com.  Please check their web site to view which style is right for you.
