There's a debate raging (raging, I say!) over whether or not leggings are pants. The two sides are staunchly for or against this fashion trend and no one is backing down anytime soon. But now that Modern Family star Sofia Vergara had a legging wardrobe malfunction yesterday, I think the pendulum is now swinging slightly more toward the "oh hell no, leggings are not pants!" category. Because you'd never be able to see someone's butt through real pants, right? But we saw all of Sofia's derriere yesterday.
Truly though, if we're ever going to glimpse some buttocks, it doesn't get much better than Sofia's. Good god it looks perfect. I can't help but wonder how much she was tortured in a past life to have been blessed with that ass in this one. It doesn't get much better than those two perfectly round buns. Kudos, Sofia, kudos.
Even though she looks down-right flawless, I don't think anyone necessarily wants to walk around with their badonkadonk in plain view. The art of wearing leggings as pants is a fine one that usually involves a low-hanging shirt or sweater and full-coverage boy-short underwear. Sofia failed here, and the leggings-are-not-pants camp is doing a little happy dance right now, eager to point out that tight spandex and cotton do not a pant make.
I'll let Sofia off the hook here. She's too hot and too funny -- I just can't stay mad at her. Maybe next time she'll consider some opaque pantaloons before going out in public. And maybe you will, too.
Do you think leggings are pants?
