Is it just me or do these pants not fit her very well? This pic was taken from pinterest. I recently made a pair that fit me like this and I am ready to trash them. However, I see this person posing in these pants like they are all fabulousWhat do you think?

my immediate reaction - good grief is she ever so slim. Second reaction, there should be a little more ease going in there for movement. How an earth could you stride about in those?

But hey, that's just my personal thoughts.

For anything that tight and unless the model is going to stay stock still 24/7, wrinkles happen. I would expect this if I wanted to be able to sit/bend over without issues. Can't see the upper back waist so no telling if there's back waistband gaping - which is a fit issue.
Speaking for myself I wouldn't make any jean type pant that fits this close this NOT because of the wrinkles, but because my lower body ( especially the front belly ) is not showcase material. If I had this models shape, I wouldn't care about a wrinkle or two or even some bifurcation. < : )
I have a one pair of knit legging type pants and while they look scary in the waist to hip region, they are really comfortable so I just make sure I'm in a long top when I wear them.

FWIW, Cute shoes...
The pants just don't look comfortable to me, even if they have a lot of stretch.

That's the style -- super-slim and stretchy. The only way the pants wouldn't have some wrinkles would be if she were a statue.

From what I can see those look fine for skinny jeans. They've almost certainly got some stretch to them, so it didn't even occur to me that they'd be uncomfortable to wear.

I had some super stretchy fabric and made jeans like these (who knows why, I'm 51). Believe it or not, they really are comfortable. The key is LOTS of lycra. Do I look like this model? No. Will I wear the pants away from home? Maybe with a tunic length top.

From a wearers point of view they are just like leggings.

I think that's just the style. If I had legs like that, I'd wear those too, so if you've got it, flaunt it!
