Jennifer Lopez Airs it Out in Randi Rahm

Posted on March 05, 2012

Oh, Miss Jenny.


Jennifer Lopez attends the “American Idol” Finalists Party in a Randi Rahm dress paired with Christian Louboutin shoes and H. Stern jewelry.

We are SO looking forward to your looming middle age. It promises to be HILARIOUS.

But sweetie, we’re pretty sure a dress that short should only be worn by toddlers in diapers.

  • GorgeousThings

    With ruffly panties!

    • serenitynow02

      Let us hope she is wearing some.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      with the matching socks with the ruffles on the top..

    • prettybigkitty

      She does have shoes with ruffles on them!

      • But why are they so big. The gaping heel adds to the look of a little girl playing dress-up. Doesn’t she have enough clout to refuse to wear their shoes unless they give her a pair that fits?

        •  The heel’s only gaping because she’s arching her foot – the shoes fit, I think.

  • lilibetp

    I think it’s really pretty.  Down to about the waist, that is. 

    • jtabz

      Agreed. If it were half a foot longer, she’d look fantastic. (Though when you start having to measure in feet instead of inches…)

      • JaneDC

        Point well taken on measurement!

      • MilaXX

         even better a pair of pencil pants or skinny jeans

        • NC_Meg

          That would look fab because that is not a dress, it’s a tunic.

        • Judih1

          agreed she would have looked alot classier if she had some pencil pants or leggings

  • shirab

    Can she sit or bend over in that, or is it only a standing-up dress? There’s no way she could walk in it without exposing something. But of course the shoes aren’t made for walking, either. I hope she didn’t have anywhere else to be but on her mark, in front of the cameras.

    • Exposing something… such as her codpiece?

  • … with ruffles across the bums so when they inevitably make a showing we all laugh gleefully at how cute they are…  You know, as opposed to laughing at how desperate you are.  The worst part is that that last pic is REALLY pretty!  Way to screw up a lottery’s worth of good looks.

  • Vaniljekjeks

    Oh dear god, no.  That is a top, not a dress. 

    • Pinup Ghoul

       It would actually look really cute with some skinny jeans, too!
      Jen, where are your pants?!

  • Lisa

    “Airs it Out” – Haaaaa!   Oh man, I love you guys.  

    And if this ridiculous desperation is any indication of how she handles 40, then yes, 50 should be hilarious!   She even has that little hint of a head tilt and bright eyed facial expression that says, “Look at me! I’m just a mere teenager!”

    C’mon, Jennifer, you talentless hack – put on something that has a little coverage, and leave this for someone like Dakota Fanning.

    • MissMariRose

       Dakota Fanning wouldn’t wear this because she has the sense enough to know even she’s too old for it.

      • Lisa

        Okay, okay, point taken…. Elle Fanning?  (LOL!)

  • Noshmek


  • joancarol

    God Bless you, Tom and Lorenzo.  This world would be sadder without you.

  • serenitynow02

    Gotta give it to her; she’s ready for action any time, any place.

  • Love the color, but GUUUURL, you need to dial it back a skosh. I smell a whole lotta trying to hard going on here, and that is only gonna get worse.

  • Anathema_Device

     Oh dear, and with the matching shoes. Desperation is flattering on no one dear.

    I remember an episode of American Idol in which she wore something too short to sit in. One of the singers turned her around to sing to her or something and MAN did she do some amazing fast fancy footwork to cover the lady parts from the crotch-level camera. I was honestly impressed with her ability to work that so fast…but was also amazed that she’d even wear something that ridiculously short when she was going to be sitting all night. Obviously not an issue for her as she’s at it again.

    •  “But my legs are sick!  Everyone wants to see my sick legs, right?”

      • Anathema_Device

         Did the earthquake jolt you out of bed early, too? I’m never on T Lo this early, LOL!

        •  Oh yeah it did.   Heard all the glasses in the hutch rattling as well as the shakeeroo.   But I’m usually up early anyhow.

          • drdirection

            where are you guys that you felt an earthquake?

          •  San Francisco, the lovely, Babylon by the Bay

        • janetjb

          It woke me up!

          •  Didn’t know you were a fellow SF Kitten.  Hi Janet!

          • janetjb

            Hello from the suburbs!

          • Lisa

            Wow!  Hope our SF Kittens are okay!

          •  I’m a Castro denizen, m’self.

          • another_laura

            Woke me up, too. And I’m not a kitten who greets 5:30 AM with any grace, ever.

          •  Well, in any case, nice to see another member of the SF chapter of Bitter Kittens R Us!

          • Judih1

            Lots of SF Bay area people here . I am in Oakland and was also jolted awake this morning from the earthquake. We have a TLO fan club here

          •  We surely do!  Yay SF Bay Kittens!

          • rawrgrowlrawr

            The earthquake made me realize I need to reevaluate my life. I live on the third floor of an apartment that is not retro-fitted, but instead of
            contemplating what I would do if a worse earthquake were to follow, I made a mental list of what clothes I would save.

      • EditKitten

        She is trying to work that shit so hard, she’s posing herself out of her shoes.

        It is not working.

  • SewingSiren

    At least it’s not tight! But I hate HATE pointy toe stilettos with mini dresses, the proportions are just all kinds of wrong.

    • janetjb

      And she’s not showing us her breasts.  If she hadn’t forgotten her pants this would have been okay.

      Hasn’t she already hit middle age?

      • girliecue

        She might be in denial, but the fact she forgot to wear pants does kinda point toward middle age. Jenny dear, we’re not being unkind… perhaps. We’re just trying to usher you into maturity gently. 

  • Oh honey, that’s a shirt. Good try though.

  • newleaf1

    Jenny, we get it.  You are young and hot.  Now please go cover up the goodies.

  • Scarlet39

    For me it begs the question “just why in the hell is she desperate”?   Is it really a 40 thing?  She looks amazing, has a fantastic body… there’s no reason for this kind of attention seeking. 

    •  Right?   She just makes herself look tawdry and talentless, unless that is her goal.

    • Kayceed

      This is such an interesting subject to me – seriously wealthy and seriously accomplished women tend to dress more conservatively/elegantly/discreetly as they rack up the dollars/accolades. JLo is the opposite of that.

      •  Except, in many or perhaps most cases, in showbiz. When you do the divorced-PR-dance it’s inevitably in the “LOOK AT ME I’M STILL SEXY AND NOW I’M AVAILABLE!” line of thinking.

    • ringthing

      I agree, but JLo is an attention seeker at Kardashion levels anymore. Who can keep count of how many products she shills for these days! That face ubiquitous x 1000, just a bit less than her cleavage. This half dress is spared that, at least. TLo’s so right – can’t wait to see her at Madonna’s age.

    •  Well, I turned 50 last year, and I am a little envious of her lovely legs and figure.  But if I had her shape, I’d dress classy over trashy and wear skinny jeans or nice leggings with this.  Once you hit the middles, comfort and function is key, which one can still achieve with style and grace. 
      I think this has less to do with her age than with her current relationship status. But if her kids were older now, boy would they be embarrassed.

  • JaneDC

    Oh dear. Seriously, what do you wear under something like that? And how can she walk or sit? Maybe she just stood there and received people all night.

    •  She walked across the Idol stage and took her seat.  I saw it, and couldn’t believe how short that dress was.

  • SapphoPoet

    So I starting scrolling down and thought, wow–this is actually kinda pretty, the color is good and I sort of like the shiny and the length seems—and whoops! I hit the end of the skirt. Wow, is that short. 

    Seriously, is that supposed to be a top?

  • Jecca2244

    That dress makes me blush for her. but those shoes! amazing on there own.

  • I still find it hilarious that American Idol managed to replace Paula Abdul with the only person in America who is LESS qualified than Paula Abdul to judge a SINGING competition.

    And I also find the image of ruffly panties underneath that…I won’t call it a dress…hilarious.

  • Someone forgot her pants. Oops! At least she’s able to smile through the nightmare. :o)

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    She has reached the point where it just looks desperate.  Yes she’s beautiful and has a killer bod, but, jeez…

  • MilaXX

    That is the dress that Miley Cyrus should be wearing, nit 40 something JLo.

  • Ozski

    Wasn’t JLo in a movie called “Enough”?

  • NCDFan

    It’s a cute top but where’s the rest of the outfit?

  • belfebe

    We can see your house from heeeeeere!!!!!
    Seriously, the color is great, the shape is fabulous, but it’s too darned short.

    • Lisa

      OMG!  Haaa!  “We can see your house from here!”  Nice one!

      • belfebe

        Thank you very much. *Bows*

  • It’s one of those nightmares we all have where we’re naked at some event, on a celebrity-TV level. 
    J-Lo shows up to taping, thinking ‘I look fabulous, new top, great shoes, fab skinny jea-…OMG I *knew* I forgot something after I stopped for a quickie with the boy toy. Hold your arms at your side gurl, to keep the top down, smile big, and baack out of the room, that’s it’.

  • She looks hot though. 

  • drdirection

    As my mother would say…She forgot her pants!

  • Look at the leather chair behind her. Then look at the dress. Then look at the chair again. Then mentally imagine the ripping sound when she lifts her posterior off the chair. 

    But perhaps La Lopez has a personal towel carrier to ensure her posterior is always protected.  Perhaps a slip of silk to cover the chair. I like to think so, because otherwise there is going to be serious DNA on that chair.

    • Kayceed

      You know, I was taught to carry a large silk scarf in my bag when shopping, to drape over my head when pulling on clothes so makeup would not transfer onto the garment. I never imagined the lurking threat of leather chairs, but, count me prepared!

    •  Oh my god, you’re right!  She sat in that chair the entire show!  The ripping, the DNA, . . .

    • Anathema_Device

       That chair needs one of those toilet seat cover dispensers on the back.

  • Little_Olive

    Or over skinny jeans. In suburbia. For the PTA meeting. 

    I hate that the fabric is whiteish on the inside. I know its a DETAIL but it takes it one step closer to Forever 21 territory.  

  • siriuslover

    out. her feet look like Cinderella’s stepsister who tried to shove her foot in the glass slipper. How painful that must be. And I was about to gasp before I scrolled down and saw the length of the dress.

  • nannypoo

    So pretty, yet so trashy-looking. How can she not know that even her fans are making fun of her? I will give her credit for one thing, though – her shoes are at least an inch longer than her feet and yet presumably she can walk. 

  • Ms_Flyover

    I hate to remind everyone, but she is middle aged.

  • lilazander

    She must really be going through a mid-life crisis–she desperately seeks attention in the cheapest possible way. YUCK!

  • I was scrolling and thinking, “I don’t know what you’re on about T-Lo this is a really cute top and…OMG IT’S A DRESS!!”

    But hey, if she’d paired it with some cute pants or leggings I would’ve given her an IN for it.

  • GTrain

    I’d feel bad for her, if I could stand her.

    • Good one.

      • Lisa


  • I love it…AS A TOP! Jenny please find some nice jeans to go with it!

  • marywv

    Well, it’s beautiful, but yes – it’s a top! As in should be worn over pants. The shoes are killing me though. I LOVE THEM.

  • LOLZ she forgot her pants.  maybe she spilled something on them?

  • Judy_J

    Good lord.

  • sagecreek

    And she looks so lovely from the waist up. Has she no trusted friends who will stop her?

  • What’s really funny is that it looks like the dress has got 8-10 inches in hem. Maybe it’s just a weird crease near the bottom, but it does give the effect of a toddler dress with a deep hem that can be let down as she grows. Awww… Little Jenny’s getting so tall!

  • crackineggs

    Jlo’s golden rule:  a week without potentially exposing something is like a week without sunshine.

  • cindybeeintex

    I  love that it has a “train.”

    • guest2visits

      Ha! Perfect!

  • Holy crap!

  • Susan Crawford

    After the Idol finalist party, Jlo auditioned for “Toddlers and Tiaras.” Coochie-coochie-coo!

  • formerlyAnon

    Oh, why?  When you look at her face and she’s soo pretty (and looking so very young – time and money well spent, Ms. L) and you look at her dress and just dismiss her as tacky or desperate, or both. (or, well, *I* do, anyway.)

    And can’t stand that you can see the back of the dress hanging down lower than the front behind her legs. Though maybe that’s better than the other way around . . .

  • PeaceBang

    I call this the “Hey Lady, You Forgot Yer Pants!” Look.

  • amywinns

    OK yes, it’s too short. But — and I’m surprising myself here — I don’t think overall it’s an unforgivable look. The hair, makeup and jewelry are all extremely tasteful and understated. Unlike Frau Klum and the other Jen (Aniston), her shiny/sparkly micromini is not also tight and/or strapless. Bronze is more interesting and less gaudy than gold or silver would be. And yes, the shoes are matchy and ill-fitting, but they are also relatively subtle. (Flats or low heels would look stumpy and weirdly frumpy, and these aren’t hooves, platforms or silly putty.)
    I don’t think “dignified” is what she is going for in this event, nor do I necessarily think she shoul dhave .

  • Well, it’s short for sure. But she does look great… I do wish she’d break it up and wear some, er, NORMAL lengths once in a while, but girl’s got legs…

  • nancylee61

    LOL!! Too funny!! A toddler in diapers!

    Yes, she does have great legs. No, she can’t dance. I was amazed watching her trying to dance in a commercial last night. The girl really doesn’t have the dancing gene. Not a great singer, can’t dance…guess she needs that body to stay relevant.

    • She was one of the original Fly Girls on “In Living Color”.

      • nancylee61

        She may well have been, but she can’t dance anymore. She barely moves. Not good.

      • nancylee61

        I just looked up on an episode where she was introduced – holy crap!! She looks NOTHING like she used to look. She had some pretty serious facial plastic surgery!! And if you watch, when they dance, she seems as though she is trying harder than some of the other dancers, who look smooth and effortless. I think she had training  but it not a natural dancer, and now that she is older, she is losing the ability she had.

  • You know the pose is all Angelina Jolie’s fault.  We’re going to see more of this unnatural hitching… ugh!!

    • DinaSews

      That was my first thought.  ‘Not to be outdone by Angelina Jolie…..’ or ‘She’s pulling a Jolie’.  Her hair and face look beautiful and natural here, though.  I can’t stand the sultry pout she tries to achieve when she is wearing a dress that hugs every curve (and exposes a few).

      • Sweetpea176

         Mine, too.  I hope this doesn’t become a thing, now.

  • funkypeanut

    The hem isn’t helping any. The way that the lining hangs down in the back makes it look like her big, white granny panties are falling off. I like the shoes.

  • VicksieDo

    Looks hot to me!

  • CatherineRhodes

    Waist up, she looks radiant and beautiful. Waist down… tacky and trying too hard.

  • It’s been a while since I last wore heels, so maybe I’ve forgotten, but: what’s up with the shoes that don’t fit?

  • Laurie Bergman

    Wow, talk about monotone!  That flash of Louboutin red doesn’t save this from being a disaster of desperate proportions.

  • Beardslee

    This is not the outfit of an inwardly confident woman.

  • Wow. I so agree! JLo, you are better than this. Stop trying to prove you still have it – because you do! Now add back on the 3 inches of fabric you cut off of that dress before you wear it again….

  • emily mcginnis

    i actually loved the dress on TV (albeit, a little longer, please). 

  • oh, honey. this just look weird. 

  • Stubenville

    Sorry, JLo – I don’t want to see your “good china.”

  • kimmeister

    I only saw her in this on Idol when she was already seated, and I thought it was surprisingly “prim” for her. HA!  Little did I know.
    I saw just a few minutes of her new Q’Viva show, and that promises to show her in equally ridiculous garb as well.

  • jw_ny

    oh my….

  • marilyn


  • butterflysunita

    Yes, that dress is too short.  But her face looks beautiful and her body is amazing.  

  • fringebenefit

    “Taste issues” is the understatement of the century. Worse, the dress is not particularly flattering. 

  • fringebenefit

    “Taste issues” is the understatement of the century. Worse, the dress is not particularly flattering. 

  • NurseEllen

    She looks good in close-up and god, I love those shoes.  It’s the whole part between the ankles and the clavicle that needs serious help.  If you’re old enough to remember Baby Snooks (a Fanny Brice character), you’ll know this dress is exactly her style.  PS, do not confuse Baby Snooks with Snookie!

  • Nora Mulllin

    That’s not a dress, that is a tunic. I’d love to see it over some super skinny pants. Right now it’s the same length as the dresses my 6 month old wears.

  • PastryGoddess

    The one body part we have not seen of JLo’s is her Address and Phone number.  I can currently see her street name and an perilously close to making out the house numbers

  • MoHub

    Obviously, it’s a top, and she simply forgot to put her slacks on.

  • MoHub

    To paraphrase Patsy Stone: “The world is her gynecologist.”

  • Christ on a cracker this woman is FABULOUS. Quick, bag her up and put her in a box where we can observe her movements and decision making process. We need to understand why this happens. It could save lives!!

  • rainwood1

    You hit it exactly, T Lo.  And I love that the sky-high heels aren’t enough for her.  She’s got to arch her foot half out of her Louboutins in case we’d didn’t get the message. 

    • Lisa

      Well, don’t forget – this is a woman who thought it was okay to wear cut-outs to meet Bill & Kathy.  My guess is “making sure we get the message” isn’t a foreign concept to her!

  • afabulous50

    She, for some reason, tries sooooo hard to continue the “sex bomb” image.  Let it go Jen,  let it go.

  • guest2visits

    I’m so glad this has finally come up. -?-  I’ve seen so many pictorials that have the models in stuff they want to call dresses-skirts-
    shorts that are way too micro. They’d like to call them dresses but they can’t be worn as anything but tunics or tops over pants.
    Not only are they too ridiculous to consider purchasing for the real world; they don’t even flatter the models.
    Yes; – even perferct, 8ft. giraffes with no body fat, look idiotic in a garment that hits them too high on the leg. It creates a
    bow-legged effect that ruins the look of both dress and model.   It has the effect of making a grown woman look like she’s
    struggling to wear a piece of childs clothing. Much like a little girl trying on mommy’s heels; the fit is OFF; to say the least.
         Eff editorial. Don’t these designers know what a joke that little piece of fabric they worked so hard on has become.
    Consider all that effort to bring something to market that no one but JLO will wear.   I think the short dress syndrome is a cover-up
    for a lack of design skills. It’s clothing that depends on the old ‘nekked’ factor to boost an average design. Instead they’ve
    ruined the flow of the design by cutting away the femininity or whatever nice lines it might have had. Whatever beauty that
    could have been expressed was sacrificed to expose as much skin as possible.   Perfect for dancing up on a ‘stage’.
         It’s not glamorous. (no matter what celeb wears it, too tiny has the effect of bringing their star down alittle). It doesn’t
    even matter which lofty haute couture fashion house created it. Everyone knows the obvious. It’s not about the dress, – it’s
    about how much the wearer wants to expose/show-off. Which designer it is, – is really a moot point.
    BTW,- I think JLO has worn some amazing and beautiful things; especially considering she doesn’t own the traditional body-type.
    I wouldn’t be especially proud if my 21 yr.old wore this.   End Rant.

  • Dagney

    Girl has the gams.  IN.  I love her style.

  • j_anson

    Oh, wow. When I clicked on this in my reader, I was thinking, “come on, T-Lo, it’s JLo! Of course she’s wearing something short!” But, uh. Yeah. 

    It’s a great color on her, though, and I can’t deny that she’s doing a damn good job of looking 15 years younger than she is.

  • NasserShaheen

    Lord. No.

  • terekirkland

    That is not ANY grown woman’s “dress” (although it may be Joan Crawford’s sparkly tunic. Someone call her to see if it’s missing!) 

    Not even the Cheno has the stature to make this look like an actual dress. 

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    But sweetie, we’re pretty sure a dress that short should only be worn by toddlers in diapers.  WORD.
    Yes, Ms. Lopez’ middle life wardrobe should provide much, much material for discussion.

  • Shoelover1512

    Some one mentioned that this is a tunic not a dress. that is 100% correct.

    There is no way that could be considered a dress. The shoes are cute but it just looks so trashy with that short dress. I can’t even call it a mini because I feel like a mini would still be longer than that.

  • poggi

    I saw the picture and thought, oh pretty. Then I read the caption and I scrolled down. Well I scr- down because there wasn’t enough dress to scroll down for.

  • Martha Deutsch

    She forgot to put her pants on !!

  • joe_tey83

    Lea Michele wants this dress and she wants it Right Now. She also wants to have the hem shorten.

  • Bozhi

    No honey, you cannot wear that dress.  Put it back in your daughter’s closet right now. 

  • Monabel


  • I really can’t stop looking at her feet. They must HURT.

  • greyhoundgirl

    “I’m recently divorced.  Would you like to see the inside of my upper thigh?”

  • Sara Leigh Merrey

    Sigh. Just because you can, it doesn’t mean you should.

  • Haven’t we all had that nightmare where we forgot to put on pants before we left home?

  • Sara__B

    Just add sausage curls, a big hair bow, and an over-sized lollipop and she’s sexy Shirley Temple. (Why does she try so hard? She’s absolutely gorgeous!)

  • ThaliaMenninger

    It reminds me of the early 70s. My sister put on the dress, shaped just like this one, that she planned to wear under her graduation robe. My mom was all, “Your top is fine, but shouldn’t you be wearing a skirt with it?”

  • AWStevens

    Is she hoping we’ll see her hooch?


  • Sequined night gown…ick

  • bitterk

    Yes, Jennifer, we got the memo and it clearly said you have great legs.  We get it.  You don’t have to repeat yourself over and over again.  No one likes a broken record dearie.  

  • abfidy

    Even her feet are trying too hard.

  • unbornfawn

    Well, I was sick and tired of seeing her boobs……………

  • ccm800

    Her right foot looks downright broken in that shoe. 

  • I like it, but I would LOVE it with a little pair of white shorts.

  • BrightsideSusan

    The woman is 42.  sorry, but she is already middle aged. Even with leggings or pants it would look juvenile on her.

  • Debbie Weiss

    And she didn’t even get her roots done.

  • unbornfawn

    Yes, honey, you are 42 and you are still hot. But, honey you would look hotter, if you didn’t try so hard to prove it.

  • Tina Hurd Winston

    JLO give Heidi her dress back

  • That dress is way too short. But as a woman one year away from the big 4-0, I understand the impulse to dress inappropriately in a desperate attempt to cling to your youth.

  • Sara Morris

    Or Lea Michele.

  • guest2visits

    If your dress needs a butt-flap to cover your bum; it’s too short.
    If people are checking to see if your panties match; it’s too short.
    If everyone is quietly trying to guess how old you might be; it’s too short.
    Love her shoes, her jewelry, the whole look is gorgeous; – except she went from sexy and awesome
    to a little bit silly looking.    Where is she going? There isn’t any place I want to sit bare-ass (jokes ensue);
     not a restuarant, not a theatre, not a friend’s home. Nope. Nowhere.
    This is a beautiful top I’d like to have (minus the butt-flap); to wear over shorts, jeans, a skirt, etc…

  • You know it’s bad when the back is actually LONGER than the front.

  • She looks like a young Britney Spears. Oh dear.

  • EEKstl

    Oh. My. God.

  • Where are her trousers?

  • Jessica O’Connell

    lol HILARIOUS title

  • littlemac8

    I was going to say it takes balls to wear that but if she had them they’d be showing!!!

  • I had a halloween costume almost exactly like this in the 90s, only it was silver because I was supposed to be an angel. Crazed disco angel, I guess, I don’t know. I’m going to have to fall back on my “But I was just a kid!” defense for that one.

  • LocMama

    I am so behind reading posts, but I had to thank you for the post title.  I was laughing long before I clicked the pic.
