We heart Cookie Johnson! Well, really we heart CJ by Cookie Johnson, the hottest new jeans made for women with curves. We’re not talking plus size ladies, we’re talking size 2 – 18 real bodies with real curves. Oh, and did we fail to mention that Oprah has just announced that these jeans are her new fave? We recently sat down with the designer herself, at Neiman Marcus to get the skinny on her bootylicious jeans.
Like most women entrepreneurs, Cookie Johnson solved one her biggest problems by starting her own business, CJ by Cookie Johnson. Cookie could not find a pair of jeans that fit her body type. You would think a tall, athletic women living in LA could find a good pair of jeans. Nope – not a pair out there – or anywhere for that matter! Cookie joined forces with fabric guru Michael Glasser (creator of luxe jean lines: Seven for All Mankind, Citizens for Humanity and Rich & Skinny), chose a premium stretch fabric and used her own body as a proto-type. CJ by Cookie Johnson currently has six different styles on the market, which include the “boyfriend,” the “straight leg” and, our favorite, the “high-waisted trouser.” In addition to being uber-chic and stylish, this new line of jeans has amazing butt coverage. No more showing off your goods when you bend over to pick up your little ones. Don’t be confused; this isn’t a “mom jean,” just designed by one. Check out CJ by Cookie Johnson at Neiman Marcus at The Mall at Millenia, or online at www.neimanmarcus.com.
