Who Wears Mom Jeans? They Wear Mom Jeans

May 11 2014 - 10:00am

Mom jeans have gotten a bad rap through the years, thanks in no small part to the (admittedly funny) Saturday Night Live sketch [1]. Far be it for us to argue with Tina Fey [2], but who couldn't get behind a little denim comfort?

And we can think of a few supermodels, actors, singers, and even heads of state who have our back on that. Because denim is a personal choice and a fleeting one at that. One day it's low rise, the next it's high rise, and for every flare trend, there's a peg-leg answer. So we say "bravo" to the stars who bravely wore their mom jeans and are honoring our own moms this Mother's Day [3] by paying respect to their namesake denim and the celebrities who did them proud.

It may be all in the genes, but we'd be willing to try any pants that make Cindy Crawford [6] look this good.

She got a lot of flak for those pants, but looking back on Jessica Simpson [7]'s outfit (and that leopard-print belt), maybe the jeans weren't the problem?

Gwyneth Paltrow Shopping in LA

Gwyneth Paltrow [9]'s raised eyebrows with some of her mothering tips, but what's more approachable than running errands in a pair of cozy mom jeans? And when she opted for relaxed denim last December, we kind of wanted a pair, too [10].
