WERQ: Jennifer Lopez in Lanvin

Posted on October 30, 2012

Y’know, normally we might withhold our snaps from a look like this:


Jennifer Lopez attends the 21th UNESCO charity gala in Düsseldorf, Germany in a Lanvin gown.

Lanvin One-Shoulder Lace Gown

But she fell so far and so hard off the style horse this month that we can’t do anything but quietly whisper “Brava,” and offer up small, discreet little snaps of approval. Turn the dial to the “Diva” setting and leave it there, Miss J. You WERQ that goth toga, girl. Best you looked all month.

    Aww, JLo turned her Halloween tablecloth into a dress!  How resourceful.  

  • Clueless_Jock

    This is almost too demure for her.

  • Not 100% on the lips, but the rest of the hair and make-up is awesome. Love the dress. Agreed on it being a good trend for her…

    • Sobaika

      Fuschia lips are a thing right now, expect to see a lot of it. I agree it’s necessarily her shade. Something warmer and less blue-based would have been good.

      • LesYeuxHiboux

        Seriously, that’s my shade and I am a fair, pink-skinned white girl.

  • BrooklynBomber

    Absolutely gorgeous.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Definitely!  That dress needed some BODY in it and Jlo was just the bitch to bring it!  Love!

  • Length seems better on the model…not so heavy…but yeah, Brava

  • MilaXX

    welcome back Diva, please don’t go slumming again

  • MsOlympia

    She’s all right…Ewan was a tough act to follow though.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    so much better than tracksuit/truckstop Jenny.

  • kimmeister

    Looking good.  I always wish her brows were a tiny bit more defined though.

  • What a relief.  JLo is many things, but butch is not one of them.

  • Ellie Rowe

    Why is there a circle sewn over her left boob?

  • Janet B

    Much more her style.  

  • decormaven

    Hope her stylist pins these comments on the board so this trend of softer dressing continues. Much better look for her; agreed it’s the best for her this month.

  • Introspective

    So glad jenny stopped trying to prove she had roots on the block. Cause we all know you wanna be a woman of the people, but we like fierce jenny better.

  • elleg929

    Best she has looked in a long time.  She was reverting back to her “Diddy” days with her young beau.  Stick to glamor, JLo!

  • amaranth16

    Love the lips. Wish the bodice were arranged properly like it is on the model, and the sash looks a little wonky, but this is quite lovely.

  • She looks really pretty! And age appropriate! (I feel free to say, being a year older than she is.)

  • She looks SOFT for once.

  • Oh, much, much nicer than her recent efforts. 

  • It’s been awhile since she shot for pretty, so this is a welcome relief.

  • oohsparkley!

    She stole Angelina Jolie’s dress. Next thing you know she’ll be adopting kids all over the place.

  • mhleta

    Yes!! Elegant, sexy, confident and not the slightest whiff of desperation. Well done!!

  • Contralto

    Now that is a fantastic look.  I generally dislike one-shoulder numbers  but she is really making it work.  Or WERQ.  

  • So beautiful–I love the bright peony lipstick with this, too. Keeps it from being all Gotholita.

    • H3ff

      The lips were indeed a masterful touch. I still cannot stand her, though.

  • I love it! It’s sexy buy not slutty, and it’s not so tight that she’s on the verge of busting a seam. Great job, Jenny!

    • EveEve

      Are you paying attention Christina Hendricks?!?!

  • sk8tfan

    wow, she out-Angelina’d Angelina Jolie! You go, grrrl.

  • Love it but i hate the weird face she made in the first pic

  • VicksieDo

    She is so beautiful.  

  • margaret meyers

    Hair and makeup are fabulous.  She’s looking so “rested.”  Fresh botox?

  • All I see is tablecloth. 

    • poggi

       Yes, but at least it’s not a sheer plastic place mat or a lace doilly.   Her current tablecloth would cover at least a small dining room table.

  • emily mcginnis

    she is covered up and looks her age! bravo!

  • So not a WERQ! All the different shades of black are driving me nuts!

  • Judi Townsend

    Not crazy about her cocker spaniel hair, but like everything else from the neck down

  • RzYoung


  • tsid2012

    She does look great, the looks suits her.  But “me no likey the length. If we gave to Heidi we wouldn”t have to shorten it at all.”

  • Her waist looks tiny.  Hate the lip color and I don’t love J-lo in black but that’s just minor quibbling.

  • And her eye job has de-swelled quite nicely and she is looking good. Very pretty dress on her. Quiet snaps indeed.

  • B_C_J

    She looks MUCH improved as compared to her last few images. However this is a lot of fabric and she appears to be a bit engulfed by it.  I like very much the one-shoulder look on her.  The lip is a bit much and I am not crazy about the hair but even with all the flaws,THIS is the dress she should have worn when she met the duke and duchess of  Cambridge and not that horrible green Gucci dress with the cutouts.

  • librarygrrl64

    Beautiful gown, and she looks good.

  • guest2visits

    I would have never pictured this dress for JLo; but she looks wonderful in it.
