Kim Kardashian is 'Proud To Rock Mom Jeans'

What better time than Mother’s Day weekend for Kim Kardashian to confront the haters who blasted the curve-enhancing denim pants she wore last week, dismissing them as “mom jeans”? The reality star posted a retort to the unkind online chatter on her official website last Friday, blogging, “For some reason, high-waisted jeans are always branded with this negative term and I think it’s kind of ridiculous,” she wrote, referring to the sailor-inspired pair that she had sported. The newly single 29-year-old, who’s no stranger to unfriendly comments from the peanut gallery, went on to defend the stylish mothers of the world, like her sister Kourtney, saying,  “I don’t think these are mom jeans at all. And even if they are, who’s to say any mom wouldn’t look fabulous in them!? Any woman who is proud of her curves should be able to flaunt them in high-waisted jeans!!! So you know what… I’m proud to rock the mom jeans!” We bet Jessica Simpson seconds that emotion. Tell us: What do you think of Kim’s so-called “mom jeans”? Would you wear them? –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley

Those don’t look like mom jeans to me, but if they are, she can pull it off.

I cannot wear mom jeans because I’m petite and busty and wearing mom jeans makes me look like I have no waist and gained 10 pounds.

I think her so-called “Mom Jeans” are fine! If I were a girl, I’d maybe wear them, if they had one in my size? Also, it’s great that Tyra Banks wrote a Novel, called Modelland, good for her, and I liked the cover of her new book!

THESE ARE NOT MOM JEANS. People need to stop saying that. They are cute, in style, and she looks great!

“Mom Jeans” are not just high waisted! They are also very boxy especially in the butt, roomy in the thighs and straight legged. – this description does not match what Kim is wearing!

You look Fabulous Kim!

When I saw this I hit the ground praying this is the start of a fad I can FINALLY get behind! And ditto on the skinny keans…worst fashion trend inn the last decade other than midrift baring shirts…really ladies, ask yourself first…CAN I DO THIS without ending uo in a People of Walmart Pic???

i swear that here i see even young girls with
the “muffin top” the fat that hangs over the
top of the low rider jeans. and yes, the thongs
and butt crack sticking out in the back. not
a lovely sight for sure. maybe the “mom jeans”
wouldnt be such a bad idea for almost all of us
girls. only skinny women can wear the low riders
and look cute in them.

Kim looks great but whatever she did to her face does not. She was stunning before and now she looks unatural. A shame really. I think it’s a bit hipocritical to say she’s all natural, when quite clearly, she is not.

it would suit you better
hate you though

I agree she looks just like her Mom-same plastic surgeon no doubt! I don’t like the jeans but she pulls it off-they look great on her.
