When it comes to comfort, Kate Hudson does not mess around.
The actress and entrepreneur spends her time chasing kids and taking meetings, not to mention learning characters. She, like so many of us, has neither the time nor the patience for stiff jeans and constricting waistbands.
On October 11, the one-time Penny Lane hosted an event celebrating Fabletics, Hudson's workout-wear brand, and its Fashion Targets Breast Cancer initiative. Instead of a swanky cocktail dress or anything that would've involved spandex undergarments squeezing away at her body, Hudson wore glorified pajama pants.
(On a side note, that's a real reason to start your own business. Do it just so you can wear pajamas, and nobody can call you out because you hired them.)
In reality, the pants seem to be a very light wash denim with pleats and extra-wide legs.
Perhaps Hudson planned to strap bags of Skinny Pop to her thighs in case the event's catering was iffy? Or, she may have been channeling the 1970s, as claimed by the Daily Mail.
Either way, these pants look exactly like the worn-out, blue pajama bottoms some 90 percent of the US owns. Comfy, but voluminous.
My immediate thought is Pajama Jeans. Remember those? You probably fell asleep during reruns of “The Twilight Zone,” only to be startled awake by an exuberant infomercial about the weird, denim-printed style choice.
Sartorial choices aside, though, Hudson was out for a good cause. Fabletics launched a three-piece workout ensemble in pink, the proceeds from which benefit breast cancer research.
She told InStyle the brand is on the up and up, saying,
I feel like we got into this [business] for all the right reasons... I wanted to be a part of this because our brand is a message [of empowerment]. That was more important to me than anything. We're just starting to get in this groove.
The easiest way to get into a groove, as everybody knows, is to wear stretchy pants.
You just can't blame Hudson for wanting to stay in her PJs all day. After all, the woman has built an entire business off the way she looks in leggings. I'd use that as an excuse, too.
