Conan O'Brien Talks Jeggings With Martha Stewart

03/28/2011 at 06:00 PM ET

When Conan O’Brien rocked man jeggings on his nighttime talk show in December, viewers marveled at his bravery — and those great legs! So what prompted the redheaded host to wear such tight pants? Why Tim Gunn, of course. “He dared me to wear them on the air, and I did,” O’Brien told Martha Stewart Sunday night on her Hallmark Channel special, Men Who Make Us Laugh. During his interview, O’Brien said he became “obsessed” with the fashion trend. “Walking around the Warner Brothers lot, I’d see these very attractive women walking around in these incredibly tight jeans,” he explained. “I kept saying, ‘Look at these jeans the women are wearing!'” When his assistant finally informed him that the pants weren’t standard jeans but in fact, jeggings, well, his mind was blown. So, would he wear them again? That remains to be seen, though he told the domestic doyenne that he wouldn’t mind designing a line with her. “If you put the Martha stamp on Conan jeggings, we’d move some product,” he joked. Tell us: What’s your opinion on man jeggings? Kate Hogan
