Jennifer Lopez has been seen wearing
Jennifer Lopez seen on May 01 2014 in Los Angeles, CA. Jennifer Lopez looked white hot as she posed for the "American Idol" photo call in LA on May 1, wearing a Michael Kors dress that allowed her to flaunt those killer gams of hers. From there, J.Lo added mismatched gold and silver Marina B bangles and a bevy of rings to her ensemble, finishing things off with a metallic gold pair of Casadei heels. While Jennifer's Michael Kors frock clocks in at a whopping $2,400 (!) you can get her look right here on CoutureCandy for a fraction of the cost. Try pairing Savee Couture's similar Lace Up Chain Dress in White, and then add on a bunch of rings (like Jules Smith's Mila Stack Rings in Yellow Gold). From there, pair a gold bangle with a silver one - we love the look of Satya Jewelry's Snake Wrap Bangle in Silver with Sophia & Chloe's Stepping Stone Bangles in Gold. What are your thoughts on Jennifer's Idol outfit on this occasion, readers? In other J.Lo news, the actress and singer recently admitted that she is "terrified" of plastic surgery. Lopez said in a recent radio interview: "I'm terrified of anything like going under the knife. [I believe in } little by little, as opposed to letting it get away and pulling it back with a knife. I think you can do it with eating healthy things and working out." Thoughts on Jennifer's anti-surgery statements, everyone?
Jennifer Lopez seen on May 08 2013 in New York, NY. Jennifer Lopez was photographed on the red carpet of the United Nations Foundation’s Mom + Social Event that was held at 92Y Tribeca in NYC on March 8, looking quite sophisticated in a L'Wren Scott LBD that had just a hint of sex appeal due to the sheer yoke. J.Lo styled this dress with a pair of white Casadei heels and a stack of silver bangles. While this dress is giving shades of a naughty headmistress, I think overall it's event appropriate while still managing to be stylish. What are your thoughts of this LBD on Jennifer, everyone? If you'd like to emulate her style on this occasion, check out three dresses here on CoutureCandy that all have sheer toppers - Nicole Bakti's Leather Insert Short Dress in Black and Donna Mizani's Pretty Girl Mini Dress in Black are both great options, and if you're looking for one that has an added dash of sparkle, check out Kay Unger New York's Sequin and Crochet Slip Dress in Black. Finally, add on Jules Smith's Bali Bangles in Silver to polish off your ensemble. In other J.Lo news, her recent video shoot for her latest single "Live It Up" was disrupted by nearby gunshots! According to E! Online, "The star was on the set of a video shoot in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., when gunshots were reportedly fired nearby, immediately prompting her security to rush her to safety. Fort Lauderdale Police confirm to E! News that officers responded to a call of shots fired at the northernmost point of the Fort Lauderdale Beach Park parking lot. Lopez and her crew were filming in the southernmost end of the park. Lopez was in the middle of doing a TV interview on the set when the shots were purportedly heard, and Lopez, who was there with beau Casper Smart, was quickly taken to her vehicle by security." Glad she's safe!
Jennifer Lopez seen on Jan 24 2013 in Las Vegas, NV. Jennifer Lopez was spotted vamping it up on the red carpet to promote her new film Parker, which was held at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV on January 24. For her premiere ensemble, J.Lo donned a sexy white Kaufmanfranco Spring 2013 gown, which has sheer illusion panels along the side and down the back. To get a similar (if slightly more casual) look to Jennifer here, try going for a simple yet sexy white maxi, like either Sena's Slit Maxi Dress in White or Eternal Sunshine Creations' Ivory Maxi Dress. From there, accessorize simply as Jennifer did here; while the diva opted for a black Ferragamo clutch, it might be fun to add a bit of an exotic feel with Big Buddha's Dara in Natural. A pretty cocktail ring, such as Danielle Stevens Jewelry's Janna Chalcedony, will provide the perfect finishing touch. Do you like this look on J.Lo, everyone? There's no denying that she definitely was into the look of this 'fit for herself... she's oozing her typical sexy confidence here! Just curious - are any of you interested in checking out Jennifer's new film, which co-stars Jason Statham? The general synopsis reads: "A thief with a unique code of professional ethics who is double-crossed by his crew and left for dead. Assuming a new disguise and forming an unlikely alliance with a woman on the inside, he looks to hijack the score of the crew's latest heist." Let me know by leaving a comment below!
Jennifer Lopez seen on Aug 18 2012 in Las Vegas, NV. Jennifer Lopez opted for a glam, divalicious, Jenny-from-the-Block-approved look as she arrived at a Wet Republic Pool Party, which was held at the MGM Grand pool in Las Vegas on August 18. Donning a pair of white lace shorts with a matching top (to get the look, pair Patrons of Peace's Crochet Lace Blouse in White with either Jenni Kayne's lacey Side Zip Short in Ivory or Corey Lynn Calter's more simple Dena Short with Pockets in Pearl), J.Lo then added on a pair of oversized shades, snake print heels, and a pair of drop earrings (like Heather Gardner's Casino Royal Earring in Gold/Clear). A white Hermes Birkin bag completed Jennifer's poolside ensemble. You gotta love J.Lo for bringing a Birkin to the pool! What are you feeling about this look for her, readers? Hit or miss? Taking a cue from Katy Perry, it has been reported that Jennifer is in the midst of filming a 3D concert movie! According to Fox News: "Lopez’s manager Benny Medina has confirmed that J.Lo is gearing up to bring her fans the "Dance Again" 3D concert film. Medina adds that the movie will tell Lopez’s story from the past few years including how she has evolved when faced with drastic changes in her life.

Jennifer Lopez seen on Jul 24 2012 in New York, NY. Jennifer Lopez was photographed heading to her lavish 43rd birthday bash aboard a boat in NYC on July 24, looking red hot in a ravishing Tom Ford dress that hugged her curves in all the right places. For her celebratory evening, J.Lo chose to accessorize with a brown clutch with gold accents and a pair of Christian Louboutin's Bis un Bout heels. To steal Jennifer's sizzling look, pick a red dress with long sleeves (take your pick between Decode 1.8's Long Sleeve Dress in Red and Aaron Ashe's Bryant Park Long Sleeve Dress in Dark Red), and then choose the right accessories such as a cool clutch (try Zambos & Siega's Logan Clutch in Cognac) and statement cuff (Wildfox Couture's Wildfox Cuff in Rose Gold is way cool). Are you into J.Lo's birthday look here, everyone? In other Jennifer news, the sexy songstress recently released chatted with MTV about the title track of her new album "Dance Again: The Hits," saying: "The single 'Dance Again' was very much how I was feeling at that moment [when I split from Marc Anthony]. It was a song that Enrique [Iglesias] wrote for himself and the chorus to me, 'I want to dance and love and dance again,' at that time in my life when I had just gone through a breakup of a family, not just a relationship, it was [me asking]: To dance again? Or to love again? Or to do anything again felt like 'wow'. But that's what I wanted. I went and I did it. When you see the reaction from the crowd when I perform it, it's like, it's mind-blowing." Go J.Lo!
Jennifer Lopez seen on Mar 26 2012 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Jennifer Lopez was seen having a major neon moment before a talk show appearance in Sao Paulo, Brazil on March 26, posing for photographers before sitting down for her interview. Wearing a neon Michael Kors dress with just-as-bright neon Casadei heels, J.Lo is like the postergirl for the current neon trend here! If you're looking to partake in spring's neon trend, I suggest picking one standout piece and keeping the rest of your look neutral (black or shades of nude), or if you're feeling fashionably adventurous, try pairing several bright pieces together. For several options here on CoutureCandy, try Joe's Jeans' Ankle Pant in Turquoise, Monrow's Narrow Tank in Neon Pink, Mark & James by Badgley Mischka's Dress in Yellow, and Zambos & Siega's Suede Izzy Bag in Magenta. What are your thoughts on the neon trend, and Jennifer's outfit here? Are you a fan of neon? On a more personal note, J.Lo recently spoke out to People about how she is open to having more children. Says Jennifer: "It would be a blessing. Every day... they just bring so much joy and happiness to your life, [and] they just bring you right back down to earth." Jennifer continues to say that she always puts her twins first, adding: "That's my philosophy. So as long as that's working in the right way, then I can dedicate whatever time I need to dedicate to my career. You just do the best you can, and say no when you have to say no. Fortunately, I have a lot of great people in my life who help... at work and at home. I have a great family – so all together – we do it. It takes a village." Very true!
Jennifer Lopez seen on Dec 13 2011 in Pasadena, CA. Photographed heading to the Hollywood Week auditions for "American Idol" that were held at the Pasadena Civic Center on December 13, Jennifer Lopez looked chic and sophisticated as she waved to fans and photographers. Wearing a mustard colored coat from The Row's Fall 2011 collection (similar to BB Dakota's Radley Coat in Marigold) over a simple black top (like Tart's Savannah Top in Black) and white wide leg pants by Milly (try Level 99's Jerry Sailor Trouser in White), Jennifer added on a pair of golden platform Charlotte Olympia pumps to her ensemble. Up next, a leopard clutch (get an exotic printed clutch with Julie K Handbags' Lynn in Python) and a pair of superstar shades completed J.Lo's ensemble. I think this is an amazing look for her - do you agree, everyone? As I'm sure you've heard, Jennifer wasted no time after her split with Marc Anthony in finding a new guy, the 24-year old Casper Smart. Well, The Enquirer has a pretty hilarious new report of the couple, that includes J.Lo being confused for Casper's mother! Says the article: "Jennifer recently spat back at a McDonald's employee after she and Casper visited the fast-food restaurant, and one of the cashiers asked Casper if he wanted to pay separately from his mom. Jennifer shouted, 'I'm his girlfriend – not his mother!' and then grabbed Casper's arm and marched out in a huff. Jennifer is tired of people making comments. She doesn't know what's worse – being mistaken for Casper's mother or being accused of being a cradle-robbing cougar! It kills her every time the age difference is brought to her attention." I don't know what's more ridiculous... this story as a whole or the fact that they claim that Jennifer would actually be inside of a McDonald's!
