As part of her favorite things episode, Oprah modeled her new favorite jeans, which are made by Magic Johnson's wife, Cookie Johnson. Oprah happened on the jeans during a cover shoot for O, The Oprah Magazine. Oprah calls them
"The perfect jeans for real women with real booties. For three days straight, I had on the jeans." Oprah says she's a hard-core pajama girl, but she actually wore the jeans during a five-hour flight, because they were so comfortable.
The line is called CJ by Cookie Johnson. Cookie reveals her inspiration:
"I had a hard time finding a jean to fit me. Every time I [would] go to the stores, I put the jeans on and I couldn't get them past my thighs. I thought: 'I'm in good shape. I work out. I eat healthy. Why can't I find a jean to fit me?'"
Cookie says that her partner Michael Glasser is an expert at fabrics. He found the unique stretch fabric in Europe. She added a silk waistband inside the waist to make them more comfort. In fact, the entire point of the jeans is that they are comfortable.
