In case you missed it, today is Oprah Winfrey's birthday! The former talk show host slash mogul is ringing in 67, and to celebrate, Spanx put her favorite Perfect Black Pants on sale. Okay, so the brand didn't technically discount them in honor of Oprah being born, but the pants are still marked down in Spanx's sale section, which is pretty noteworthy in and of itself.

Made with Spanx's signature smoothing, four-way stretch fabric, they look like regular trousers but feel just as comfortable as leggings. The zipperless, pull-on style has a hidden smoothing panel in the waistband that's designed to be figure-flattering — and this genius detail is the reason Oprah included the Perfect Black Pants on her list of Favorite Things in 2019.

"They have built-in tummy control, so you don't need to wear compression gear underneath — you're already Spanxed in," Oprah raved. She also reportedly called Spanx founder, Sara Blakely, to thank her for creating them.

Since getting Oprah's stamp of approval, the pants have become so popular that Spanx subsequently created five other versions of them, three of which are also on sale right now. For a limited time, you can get the cropped flare, tuxedo-style, and sequin tuxedo-style variations of the Perfect Black Pant for 30 percent off.

While the exact pair Oprah deemed her favorite isn't included, the aforementioned styles come with all of the same incredible features as the original, but with their own unique design details. As the name implies, the cropped flare pants are shorter in length and have wide-leg hems. They're currently marked down to just $76 (originally $110). One version of the tuxedo pant has a slim, straight-leg fit with black stripes down the sides, while the other is a skinny pant with sequin stripes — both are on sale for $104 (originally $148).

There's no end date listed for these deals, but you'll want to get a pair in your cart sooner rather than later so you don't miss your chance to score them for less. In honor of Oprah's birthday, go ahead and treat yourself to a pair of the Spanx pants she calls her favorite!
