Jennifer Lopez in London

Posted on October 25, 2012

J Lo is very respectful toward local cultures she visits in her travels. It’s inspiring, really. She should have been an anthropologist or something. Here, we see her in the wilds of London, taking on the attributes of the local tribe known as Chavs in order to better blend in with the environment.


Jennifer Lopez shopping in Knightsbridge, London.

It’s comforting to know that Jenny can get her trashy on on two continents.

Seriously, does anything say “low class” better than a Birkin bag paired with a sweatsuit? GURL. What is going ON with you lately?

  • Did she just land or was she there for a few days already? If she just landed, I’ll give her a pass. Plane rides are not fun anymore.

    • alyce1213

      They are if you’re in first class.

    • lovelyivy

       Yup. That looks like “Just got off of a 6 hour plane ride” chic to me, and having done it more than a few times I completely get it. Not fun, even in first or business.

      • tereliz

        Just got off a trans-Atlantic flight or not, there’s no doubt the girl is chavving it. There is comfortable sportswear out there that will still look good after six to eight hours on a plane. Sadly, I think JLo is confused about what the term American Sportswear means. 

        • lovelyivy

           Your point. That sweatsuit is beyond tacky.

      • cooperalden

        I think it says I just got off the bus from Albany and boy did we hit traffic… Don’t pretend she doesn’t have really comfortable clothes that look nice.  I would be angry if anyone, celebrity or not, was dressed like this next to me on the plane.  Disrepectful.

        • Megan Sparks

           How is it disrespectful for someone to dress comfortably on a plane ride? Wearing sweatsuit doesn’t affect you or anyone on the plane? That’s a bit extreme.

          • cooperalden

            I agree it may have been extreme, but as a poor person who travels by rail and bus and coach, i am over people boarding in pajamas or close to it.  I work all day in a constricting suit.  For travel i wear a comfortable shirt, pants and jacket.  Just because I am traveling doesn’t mean i get to wear my 7am outfit.

      • Khristen Bendali

        Um, I flew to and from Europe while 7 months pregnant, in coach, and never even considered a sweatsuit or yoga pants. Skinny jeans, a cute t-shirt and a long cardi wrap are the way to go for long flights. This is just lazy and trashy.

      • I think plenty of average non-celebrity ladies find ways to be perfectly chic and put-together while still being comfortable on long flights. NEVER should anyone resort to a sweatsuit, unless you are at home sick with the flu or suffering from shingles!! This is so gross and ugly and she definitely travels with more amenities than I can fathom with even my wildest imagination. So, no excuses.

    • MilaXX

       I think she’s been there a minute because I saw a concert pic in which she had a nip slip a few days ago.

    • l_c_ann

      I know the part of the plane where I sit isn’t fun anymore, I sort of expected her and her entourage to be in First.

    • miagain

       says above that she was shopping in Knightsbridge…. grrrrr

    • VeryClaire

      No pass, she’s shopping in Knightsbridge, not leaving the airport.

    • PastryGoddess

      If Vicki B can change her clothes before she gets off the plane, Jenny “Hola Lovers” Lopez can too. 

      Also I’m pretty sure she flies private most of the time

      • Wow, really – Jlo has that kind of $$? Sorry, need to go hurl…

    • Yeah, I give her a total pass. But she should have chosen another bag. Ew. The rest is vintage JLo.

    • lesmaha

      we don’t think she flies by private jet?

    • Frank Li

      Even if she just got off the plane, that outfit is just… no.

  • SistaT

    I think what *really* does it is wearing a thong under said sweatsuit so that you get full on “hungry butt”.  Seriously, her ass is gobbling up those pants.

    • sweetlilvoice

       Thongs are the most comfortable thing to wear on a long, long horrid plane flight. 🙂 Maybe it’s better in first class…

      • Sarah Dickerson

        Ew. No.

      • DeborahJozayt

        She has her own private plane. She doesn’t bother with first class.

    • NC_Meg

       I thought the nail in the coffin was “angel” down the side in gold but you have a valid point.

      • 3boysful

         Under no circumstances should anyone over age 4 have “Angel” emblazoned on their clothes.

        • AthenaJ

          What about pajamas?

          • 3boysful

             Okay, okay–no one over 4 should APPEAR IN PUBLIC like that.  (Clearly, you are a fellow lawyer!)

          • AthenaJ

            Hehe, no, no cross-examining here… I was just asking since I was at Victoria’s Secret yesterday and almost picked up a pair of their pajamas (most of them have some silly phrase or whatever on them). I just want to make sure I’m not inadvertently getting to J-Lo levels of obliviousness/desperation!

  • An “almost” matching Birken bag.

  • Dot

    I really thought this matchy sweatsuit trend had died. Guess I was lying to myself. She even matched her purse to that getup!

    • Mary229

      There was a period about 7-8 years ago where I seem to recall that this matchy sweatsuits were legitimately in-style.  Every store had Juicy knock-off sweat suits and for young women (I was early 20’s at the time) it wouldn’t have been considered too casual or out of style to wear some of these on a daily basis.  But now?  No.

      • Sadly, it remains the uniform of the Wealthy SAHM Brigade where I live. 

        • dulcinea86

          Wow that’s the second time in about a week you’ve slammed stay-at-home moms. What gives?

          •  I am a SAHM myself.  I guess I should’ve made it more clear.  Maybe “overly botoxed trophy wives” would’ve conveyed better?  (Lots of Stepford wives where I live.  And this is seriously what they wear all year round.)  I’m a card-carrying member of the middle-class SAHM brigade myself.  No disrespect for SAHMs intended.  🙂

          • I guess I get angsty because, due to the law of supply and demand, our fashion racks are loaded with piles of matchy velour tracksuits.  It makes it hard on those of us who are into more fashionable wares.  🙂

      • pop_top

         Yes, and JLo had a fashion line that was built almost entirely on them.

        • RebeccaKW

           To be worn with high-heeled Timberlands.

      • Velour suits! c/o J.Lo and Juicy Couture. 

  • YoungSally

    And a sorta low rent VS sweatsuit at that….with glitter!!  Couldn’t she at least gone no-logo…..sorry, it’s JLo.

    • kimmeister

      Exactly!  If you’re past the age of 20 and your pants have words on them, they’re ok to wear around the house but not in public.

      • ^Words to live by

      • YoungSally

        Good I don’t still have my day of the week underwear from the 70s, huh.

        • DeborahJozayt

          Oh my gosh I loved those!

  • She looks like she came straight out of The Only Way Is Essex! Actually, the guys and girls on The Only Way Is Essex look a bit better come to think of it…

  • is it just me, or is JLo turning into a billboard advert, with legs?

    • Anathema_Device

       “She’s got legs/She knows how to sell them…” sung in my best ZZ Top voice. 😉

      •  So, do they pay her by the square inch of flesh that’s covered? If so, this was a VERY expensive ad.

        • Anathema_Device

           Location, location, location!

          •  So, we’re saying that bodypart placement for the ad plays a role in pricing too?  Wow, this gets complicated, doesn’t it?

          • Anathema_Device

            Not only body parts, but how often those body parts are paraded around in public and captured on camera for magazines and websites.

          • there must be an advanced computer program to figure it all out correctly.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            The product placement algorithm -who would have thought?

  • MilaXX

    That is hysterical! She is the very definition of a Chav.

  • Trash.  

  • Janet B

    Irrational dislike of those sunglasses

  • alyce1213

    Still playing Jenny from the block, with glitter.

  • from the neck up i think she looks great lol. but seriously, how great does her skin look in that second pic?

  • Anathema_Device

    Is she pulling a 3/4 chav by not having a prominent logo on those hideous sunglasses?

    The bag matching the sweats is what tips this over into pure hilarity.

  • EditKitten


    Ever. There are better things to wear that are just as comfortable, even on a six-hour flight.

    • kschwarting

      Thank you!  I travel a lot for work, under decidedly less glamorous circumstances, and I would never dress like this on a flight. 

  • Sobaika


  • Mary229

    I’m pretty sure she was wearing the same sweatsuit back in 2002.   Isn’t this her standard look?   She’s a pretty woman but I’ve never been a fan of her style.

  • cleverlady

    Oh, come on…. these are her comfy duds for easy-off — easy-back-on… clothes shopping.
    Or… the air line lost her luggage and she’s shopping for something to go with that Birkin…Yeah right!

  • she’s the margaret mead of the ‘hood.

  • teensmom99

    Jennifer Lopez IS Ali G.

  • It’s the glitter applique “Angel” on the leg of the pants that blasts it into chav territory.

    • VeryClaire

      Yeah, I’m pretty sure I saw that same get-up, sans Birkin, in the JC Penny Little Girls section recently. 

  • miagain

    I wish she could run into Cathy Cambridge… and hang her head in shame!!

  • Carla_Charlton

    If she were a guy, you know you’d call her a douche.

  • SewingSiren

    The worst part about it, is it is oh so intentional.

  • Jenny from the block is back!  I guess it doesn’t help when you have a young boyfriend, you tend just start dressing like him. 

  • Is she bovvered?!

  • DinaSews

    Methinks her beau is affecting her adult decisions to dress herself. 


  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    I flipped onto this page and before I read anything I thought – “Wait – what is TLo doing commenting on ANYTHING about that Jersey Shore Show?”  And then I realized what was going on.  Uh oh.

  • It’s the younger man.  Makes her think she is twenty.  As a woman of the same age as J.Lo, I can safely say she looks ridiculous in this getup.

  • That sweatsuit looks so so so very cozy though.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    Imagine that-JLo dressing down in a sweatshirt….a sign of common sense or of the impending apocalypse?

  • GorgeousThings

    Not just any sweatsuit – a sweatsuit that proclaims loudly, “I buy cheap-ass clothes made in sweatshops and flown to every mall in creation!”

    My my, how the mighty have fallen.

  • sweetlilvoice

    I hope she was heading into Harrod’s in that outfit. There was a Krispy Kreme last time I visited, so she would fit right in!

  • librarygrrl64

    I thought Chavs were native to the northern counties?

    • Kate4queen

      No. Chavs are pretty much everywhere these days… 🙂 

      • librarygrrl64

        Ah, okay. So was the origin regional at first and then spread, kind of like the term “redneck” here in the US?

  • Seriously, she’s shopping in Knightsbridge and she wears a sweatsuit? What is wrong with her?

  • I don’t care who you are, a sweatsuit is not appropriate airplane attire. You’re in PUBLIC. At least throw on comfy jeans with an appropriate top, jacket and comfortable (NOT UGGS) shoes

  • kschwarting

    That’s not just a Birkin with a sweatsuit, it’s a Birkin with a glitter-splashed sweatsuit.  Oy.

  • Kate4queen

    Question: what does the man in the fourth picture down have in his hand? Is it a small dog, a muppet, his sleeve??

    • kimmeister

      HAHAHAHA!  Maybe it’s the fur trimmed blanket that she had draped across her in the car, now rolled up in his hand?

  • decormaven

    Does anyone really think JLo flies commercial? This gal is private jet all the way; that’s why this look is beyond tragic.

  • ojosazules

    She looks completely, comfortably herself. 

    • notanotherusernameforchrissake

      Yeah, I have no issue.  this is her.  and if she had Starbucks and Krispy Kreme stains down the front (as I probably would have), I could even give her a pass. (says the woman who has worn pajamas on a redeye between las vegas and honolulu) 

  • 3boysful

    I like the disembodied (appearing) hand in the third photo.

    • snarkykitten

       Thing caught a rat by the looks of things

  • AnaRoW

    I’m sure I’m the only one but I really don’t have problem with this. When she’s not being a “star” she tends to dress like the dancer she is. It’s not like she’s on the red carpet.

  • Imasewsure

    Great more low-class, “ugly Americans” abroad… thanks JLo… we really needed more bad press about our lack of taste, lack of class, and lack of effort

  • She looks cute and comfy.  Nice to see she travels in comfy clothes like the rest of us.

  • Susan Collier

    That tracksuit screams “I’m getting plastic surgery today.”

  • “Chavs” – ha!  Have you ever seen British comedy duo Armstrong & Miller do chavs in the RAF?

  • snarkykitten

    whatever, if she just hopped off a plane, she can dress as comfy as she wants. I imagine even 1st class gets uncomfortable after 15 hours

  • frannyprof

    Jlo is having a midlife crisis. Watching it play out in front of the cameras like this is so deliciously sad. But fun.

  • AthenaJ

    I still love the booty and the big gold hoop earrings though. What doesn’t work for me is the matching birkin bag. You are so not Jenny from the block anymore slinging that thing around.

  • Lola67

    Waahaaa! I actually have a red, stretchy velour, sweat suit with a blingy zipper pull. My husband calls them my JLo sweats. I pull them out on Christmas when I’ve had too many Herbaltini’s. Wait, did I just admit that?

  • jw_ny

    Jenny from the block looks cute in that sweat suit…she better be coming from or going to the gym or rehearsal tho…no other reason/excuse to be out in public in sweats and with hair that looks like that!  Your butt looks cute in ’em anyway.  😉  But girl…just because the bag is also red, doesn’t mean it automatically goes with the outfit.  tsk.

    ps…and what’s up with the handler in pic 4…with the fur ball in his hand?  Please don’t tell me that was a fur lined hat she was wearing!

  • At least her Birkin is perfectly matched to her sweatsuit. #sarcasm

  • kittenwithaquip

    She’s working her “I’m just Jenny-from-the-block, girrrrl” mien. Sadly, it only works in Jersey.

  • You can take Jenni out of the block but you can’t take the block out of Jenni.

  • No shit.  It’s like she doesn’t care

  • Are she and that little boy together still? Could be a relationship slump. I think she looks comfy and cozy as hell! 

  • guest2visits

    I don’t think I can get that worked up over her bright orangey-red sweatsuit. Not my color choice for laying low; but she’s a STAH.
    Matching Birkin bag does make me gag a little though.

  • quiltrx

    LMAO definitely Chav Chic.

  • Exactly. Love the way her $10,000 bag matches her freaking TRACK SUIT.

  • Lauren Cooper ain’t even bovvered about J.Lo.

  • I saw a dude wearing this exact outfit once. Except his was hot pink and he carried it with a lot more sass. 

  • Diane_G

    She’s the quintessential Honey Badger now.

  • Jecca2244

    I fly often to see my in least a six hour flight (and always in coach), longer in airports if not direct. and i never do it in sweat pants. There is comfortable clothing that exists that doesn’t look like this. and that is easily a 30k bag.

  • littlemac8

    Jenny from the Hood looks like she never left it.  That’s street cred folks!  And really hideous.

  • lorax14838

    My eyes ache from rolling….

  • ccm800

    total chav! too bad thats like worse than calling someone a dimestore kardashian here in the states. 

  • H3ff

    It reminds me of a brilliant SatC scene:

    Hello. Francesca? Samantha Jones. Question. How the fuck long does Lucy Liu have to wait for that Birkin? If they’re so hard to get, maybe you can explain why I just saw a fucking nobody in a tracksuit carrying the exact one we want!

  • Too much red.
