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!

        • Nancy Abrams

          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?

          • murt

             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.

      • Sara Munoz

        Exposing something… such as her codpiece?

    • Leah Elzinga

      … 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.

    • Kiltdntiltd

      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.

      • Kiltdntiltd

         “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!

          • Kiltdntiltd

             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?

            • Kiltdntiltd

               San Francisco, the lovely, Babylon by the Bay

          • janetjb

            It woke me up!

            • Kiltdntiltd

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

            • janetjb

              Hello from the suburbs!

            • Lisa

              Wow!  Hope our SF Kittens are okay!

            • Kiltdntiltd

               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.

            • Kiltdntiltd

               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

            • Kiltdntiltd

               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.

          • Kiltdntiltd

             Nice shoes, though. (EG)

    • 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. 

    • Alli

      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. 

      • Kiltdntiltd

         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.

        • Melissa Brogan

           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.

      • Therese Bohn

         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.

      • Denise Alden

         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.

    • Stella Zawistowski

      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.

    • Liana Brooks

      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.

      • Stella Zawistowski

        Actually, I don’t want to see Miley Cyrus in it, either!

    • 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*

    • Crystal

      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’.

    • Euphory

      She looks hot though. 

    • drdirection

      As my mother would say…She forgot her pants!

    • Janet Selman

      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!

      • Denise Alden

         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!

    • Heather Waddell

      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.

      • Carol

        Good one.

        • Lisa


    • Therese Bohn

      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.

    • Emily Smith

      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?

    • Barbara Lee Woodruff

      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!

    • Laura O’Gorman

      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 .

    • Laura Schultz

      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.

      • Karen Stephens Bassett

        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.

    • Charlotte Horseman

      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.

    • Gayer Than Thou

      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?

      • Karen Stephens Bassett

        I’m sure it is because they are free.

    • 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.

    • Nancer

      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). 

    • Mori Clark

      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.”

    • Brittany Johnstone

      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


    • natalia h

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

      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?

      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!)

      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?”

      Is she hoping we’ll see her hooch?

      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.

      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. 

    • Jaeda Laurez

      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.

      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.

      Or Lea Michele.

      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.

    • rebecca

      She looks like a young Britney Spears. Oh dear.

    • EEKstl

      Oh. My. God.

    • Cassie (C.M.W.)

      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!!!

    • How to Faint

      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.

      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.
