Both pairs of jeans look terrific on you! I am taking inspiration from your wearing the Silver distressed jeans; I want to try distressed jeans but am unsure if they'll work with my style. Yours have just the right amount of distressing; I would try some like that.

Beautiful coat, too. The fashion show sounds like lots of fun.

You look amazing in skinnies (both pairs)!

The high rise jeans look great. I don't think they look like leggings if made of denim, even with stretch, and have real pockets, zipper, belt loops, etc. That all gives a lot of structure, even if they are close fitting.
