In Hollywood, jeans for women were made popular by the stars of the time. There was the athletic and self-assured Katherine Hepburn (who wore them off-screen) and Marilyn Munroe (who wore them on). Debbie Reynolds also did her part in "Tammy." Not to mention the motorcycle culture of the early 50s who also helped to make them fashionable. Think of Marlon Brando "On the Waterfront."
Perfect for the pinup or fifties look, high rise jeans cinch the narrowest part of your torso and play up your curves. This makes them a natural for the curvy women who want to accentuate what she's got, along with the more boyish figures who want to create the illusion of an hour-glass figure.
