Are Leggings Pants? Kate Hudson Settles the Debate

In a recent interview with Elle.com, Kate Hudson was asked an oft-discussed question: Are leggings pants?

>Her reply was surprisingly refreshing and straightforward: "For sure," the actress answered. "If I'm packing some leggings, they count as a pant outfit. They're super versatile."

>Unlike other celebs who might claim that leggings are the ultimate sign of laziness or athleisure gone too far, Hudson put it all on the line for her fitness brand, Fabletics. So there you have it folks: Leggings are pants. Why? Kate Hudson said so.
