IN or OUT: Jennifer Lopez in Lanvin Blanche

Posted on January 24, 2013

If we were more manipulative sorts, we’d have a headline something like “J LO HITS THE RED CARPET IN A BRIDAL GOWN! BITCH IS CRAZY!”

But just as you eagerly click on the link, visions of a Latina Miss Havisham dancing in your heads, you would be met with this:


Jennifer Lopez attends a screening of ‘Parker’ in New York City in a Lanvin Blanche dress. Shoes and clutch also by Lanvin.

Lanvin Blanche 2013 Bridal collection

Dashing your hopes of seeing Jenny in tattered rags, wandering the red carpet like a madwoman. No, it’s just another J Lo white dress; one in a long line of them. It’s the way she interprets “chic.” Like, when she wants to tone things down and be taken seriously as some sort of artist, she busts out the form-fitting creamy-white dress. It’s her thing. Well. It’s one of her things. She’s got a lot of them.

It’s a look. We have no real issue with white when it’s deployed well. It always looks good on her. Not much in love with the waist bow. And we think she’s got way too many diamonds on one hand. Plus the shoes are kind of an unimaginative, borderline-bridal choice. We don’t know, you guys. We think she looks pretty okay here, even if it’s not as exciting as, say, dressing up like a supervillain.

What do y’all think? Are we being too nice?


Vote Now!


IN! Nothing wrong with classic, low-key chic. Especially since she’s stuck on the “tacky” setting so often.


OUT! Boring and bridal.



Diane Kruger’s “I’m a little (French) teapot” getup was voted IN, but just barely.

    • Jennifer Small

      IN, but I wish she had chosen more exciting shoes.  I feel like I have a low bar for JLo, and the fact that it is well fitted and sleek looking makes it INish enough for me.

      • Sobaika

        Agreed. It’s not winning any fashion awards or eliciting gay gasps, but she looks fine.

      • Hell Yes, I Would!

        It looks a teeny bit too small to me. Like it’s pulling on her hips. And right above the ribbon. And I get that she has hips and a curvy figure – but I wish it was just the teeniest bit bigger.

        • Jen R

          Yes, at least this looks like an attempt at a good fit. 

          Now the dress she wore on “The Daily Show” to promote this film – that dress was so tight that she looked she either had a small bun in the oven or had somehow gained quite a bit of weight. At first glance I’d thought she’d merely forgotten her Spanx, but no. Even her biceps and face looked fat.

      • Violina23

        agree, no major complaints, but nothing earth-shattering…

    • Pants_are_a_must

      The look says “second marriage rich bitch bride,” but the face says “abandoned at the altar by my stupid rich bitch fiancé—AGAIN!”

      You can’t say she doesn’t take her look seriously, though. DRAMA.

      IN because I am entertained. And also because she’s wearing something mildly flattering that isn’t sheer.

      • 3boysful

         Pants, you nearly had me convinced.  But I am claiming OUT solely on the manicure.

        • Jennifer Small

          Ew, that manicure is cray cray!

          • LipstickForPigs

            Backwards press-ons. Weirdy.

        • Patricia Groves Dobrowski

          Agreed.  Is a reverse French tip a thing now?  Or are these just as whack as they look?

          • SassieCassy

            ohhhh its a THING. ive also seen black lining around french tips, gradients, you name it.

            • DeborahJozayt

              Why can’t plain fingernails be a thing? Why must trends take my money?!?!

            • CurbGirl

              let this be a ‘thing’ that you avoid, like the flu or such.

          • kimmeister

            Being a thing and being whack, in this case, are not mutually exclusive!

          • formerlyAnon

             It’s a thing now, and I hate it. Makes your fingers look shorter, IMO. Which isn’t really the point of a manicure, I’d have thought.

            But then, I have a minor thing with women’s hands. (A major thing with men’s hands.)

        • Sarah Caponigro

           Ahhhhh I didn’t even see the manicure.

        • wisdomy

           Yes.  What on earth is with the nails?

        • Pants_are_a_must

          You know, I see your point about the manicure, but I err on the side of the Fug Girls whenever JLo is featured.

        • Sara Munoz Munoz

          Oh no, see I LOVE the nails. They are so much better than the trendy, partially sparkly talons she wore recently. I would so have this done this to my nails, if I actually paid someone to do my nails. I’d never attempt it on my own.

          • marlie

             I agree. They’re also sooooo much better than the pointy talon-like nails that are in right now.

        • foodycatAlicia

           It’s not that far from the 40s manicure that Dita von Teese does, although her nails are usually longer and a bit pointed.

        • oatmealpie

          I’m gonna call it a reverse French manicure. Definitely weird and tacky.

          • marlie

             I don’t particularly like it, but I don’t know if “tacky” is the right word, especially since we’ve seen some pretty tacky-tastic crap on this site. ;)

            • heartbot

              It just looks like her fingernails are growing backward. 

            • marlie

               EW. Thanks for that mental image.

    • Kayceed

      That dress looks like it was made out of foam. A bridal shower party game gone awry, perhaps.

      • Sarah Caponigro

         I felt the same way.

      • Kristin McNamara

        Agreed. And even before I saw your post, my comments were going to be as follows:

        1) That dress looks like it’s made of neoprene. WTF?

        2) In the wise words of TLo, “Close your mouth, you goober.”

        Oh, and definitely OUT, btw.

        • Kimbolina

          I was curious so I looked it up on the Lanvin site.  “Strapless dress in white sculptural rubber” is what they’re calling it.  So yeah, basically neoprene…  Also, the peplum is only on the front.  The back is plain with all the Bitter Kittens’ favorite element, a full length exposed zipper.


          • shirab

            Well, my ski mask is made of neoprene so maybe she’s warmer in this dress than I had first thought, since it is quite cold in the mid-Atlantic just now. A practical choice after all!

            Also, re: manicure, gross! Looks especially bad from a distance.

          • Kayceed

            Well now. Perfect for scuba honeymoon, I suppose. Thank you Lanvin, for addressing that underserved corner of the market.

            • Celandine1

              Time saving and practical because the bride can go straight from her beach wedding to the honeymoon.

          • kimmeister

            If JLo wore a peplum on the back, it might poke someone’s eyes out.

          • Delaney Davis

             Neoprene! I wonder how messed up that looks in person, then.

          • littlemac8

            Thanks for doing the homework for the rest of us!  It’s a scuba dress!!!  Well, if she’s caught in a sudden downpour she’ll be fine!!!

      • Naomi

         To me it looks like fondant.  Possibly I have been spending too much time on Cake Wrecks.

        • Alyssa

          I too spend way too much time on CW…but it at least looks like pretty fondant! Very smooth, no cracks, lol. I still say IN because this is fairly respectable from JLo. And I do quite like the bracelets, although she probably didn’t need to be dripping in diamonds so much!

      • kimmeister

        Or fondant!

      • Little_Olive

        I saw the foam thing too. You can get really drunk and not worry about crashing into furniture.  Now there is an idea for a business. 

        BTW, I am loving this thread so much. 

    • Wendy Kaufman

      Well, if she’s anything like me (be nice, now kittens, you know what I mean), the white thing is a reaction formation to the over use of black. Yes, the shoes are boring boring boring. Points off for those, but the bow is so understated that it’s kinda nice. IN.

      • Kristin McNamara

        “Like you” meaning you’re a mother, entertainer, and person too? ;)
        (I’m sorry, I just feel like that line must be deployed at least ONCE per JLo post…..)

        • Kayceed

          You are correct. It must.

    • Fifi LaRoux

      Yawn. OUtzzzzzzzz.

    • another_laura

      OUT OUT OUT.  T Lo, you are being WAY too nice.  I dislike the dress because peplums are the work of Satan and it does look like a dress for a bride who wants to be different and wear a short dress.  The all-white shoes are a mistake, and wow, do I dislike the manicure.  I don’t even like the jewelry.  Give me supervillain any day!

      • IAmJ

         Gotta second the manicure comment. Haaaate.

    • j_anson

      IN. I’m not that crazy about this kind of look, but she’s the right kind of star to do it, and she’s doing it reasonably well.

    • MilaXX

      IN it’s a perfect JLo look, I don’t even hate the nail art.

    • Ashleigh Boutelle

      Personally, I’d like to see all previous creamy-white indiscretions just for the fun of it! Where’s the clip show?

    • KGW

      I like the reverse French manicure.  I may try it myself. 

    • Janet B

      Love the bracelets
      Like the runway dress better
      Dislike her hair parted almost in the middle


    • Nariya

      I feel like this would be boring and bridal, except that it’s on J Lo. I feel like she’s workin it up with her Hola Lovers stare alone.

      Can’t be okay with the shoes though, not even on her.

    • gabbilevy

      OUT. Also, her nails are on backwards.

    • Catherine

      It’s the hair! She totally got it lightened, and it’s like she turned down a dimmer on her beautiful features. If the hair was darker, I think this might work. Love the nails.

      • halleygee

        She could also use a conditioning treatment on those tresses, they look fried.

      • Denise Alden

         O to the OUT, simply because of her fried-looking hair.  I am over the hair already!

      • kschwarting

        ITA, and I also think it makes her look tired.

      • StPauliGrrl

         Her hair looks like  SJP’s but longer and not as badly dyed.

    • Annabelle Archer

      IN – because it’s not too short, not too tight, not too see through, not too hookeresque.  It is awfully bridal though and if you had said she wore this to her latest elopement I would have not be at all surprised.  
      If you earn an IN because of how bad something is *not* as opposed to how fabulous something is, does that still count as an IN?

    • ccinnc

      Dress is meh, hair looks like straw, weird manicure, shut your mouth.

    • LearnedFoot

      Is she sporting a *reverse French manicure* up there? I had no idea that was a thing. It looks like she applied her Lee press-on nails upside-down.

      • Pennymac

        Ha! That’ll teach me to post before scrolling all the way through. I just said the same thing. Great minds and all that…..

    • Elaina M Basabe

      I like it at first glance but after letting it sink in…I hate it.  It IS boring.  It IS bridal.  It IS too matchy-matchy.  The dress itself is fine but did she have to match everything?  There should be some sort of kick to this thing.  She isn’t virginal.  Is she wearing irony as an accessory?  Try again, J-Lo.

      • Lori

        My main problem, aside from the hideous manicure and the shoes, is that this is actually, literally bridal. It is part of an actual bridal collection. It would be a fine choice for wedding #5 or whatever she’s up to these days, but for a step & repeat it’s just cray.

        • kimmeister

          Exactly!  I think a bride can get away with wearing a non-bridal dress, but it doesn’t work the other way around.

    • MarissaLG

      It’s bridal, and she always look foolish to me, but I love the nails. Barely passes with an IN. 

    • CeeQ

      I hate the shoes, let’s just get that out of the way.

      I actually love the diamonds on her hands and wrists, it’s a hot mess of bling but it’s a working hot mess. For me anyways =) 

      And I am loving the dress, even with the bow detail – I think it’s subtle enough that it works. The ruffle-y thing doesn’t take away from the look either and doesn’t make her hips look huge. 

      Also: the hair and make-up are all working for me – it’s not too over the top but still sexy and sultry. This is definitely a second marriage wedding dress =D But honey, you have kids so the cat’s out of the bag so maybe no whites this time? LOL   


    • MaryanneGirl

      WTF is up with her backwards French manicure? Does anybody else see that?!

      • Pennymac

        They almost look like press on nails. Weird.

      • Snailstsichr

         Looks like girlfriend put her Wal-mart nails on backwards.

        • MaryanneGirl

          Right? Somebody got a little tipsy the night before and had some issues with the Lee press-ons. 

    • lamamu

      I’m riding the fence, because I’m not sure she isn’t the kind of lady not to hit the red carpet right after hitching herself to husband #4. Let’s face it, that wedding is waaay overdue. Short of that, however, it’s an OUT!

    • StellaZafella

      In -for JLo – It’s simple – for JLo – but I’d like to see today’s duck lips appearing on yesterday’s full body leopard…then we’d know for sure she’s trying to get into the Avenger’s flick.

    • Sara__B

      OUT, because it doesn’t fit very well, or flatter her shapeliness. And her hair looks fried.

    • homofascist

      I automatically default to loathing her, but I must admit that girlfriend looks great.

    • BrooklynBomber

      Half in, half out. If it fit better it’d be in. I’m so fed up with this slightly-too-tight trend.  Not just her– it’s all over the place.

    • newleaf1

      A skirt is too tight when you can see the thigh muscle flexing underneath.  Just sayin’.

    • Sarah Caponigro

      If you look at the stitching and the fabric near it, it looks like white wet suit material. Strange.

    • miagain

      It’s @#$%^&* 20 degrees out there…. what is she thinking???  out

    • Patricia Gillett

      OUT. Fit does nothing for her. 

    • NMMagpie

      It looks like it is already in soft focus, as if it is an expectation for the photos themselves.

    • Eric

      Nice dress, JBF hair

    • Eva_baby

      So tired of the O-face.  Totally OUT.

    • hellkell

      She looks like a bridesmaid, or a clueless wedding guest who doesn’t know you don’t wear white to a wedding. Love the big diamond ring and the reverse French mani, though.

    • veronkimo

      IN! She looks good. You can’t take that away from her just because she’s wearing a bridal dress. The shoes are a little bridal and matchy, but it doesn’t really take anything from the look! Looking good, JLo! 

    • Kathy_Marlow

      OUT, all i can see is cheap Vegas bride and the nail polish is horrible.  Her gays need to be slapped

    • altalinda

      Mother of the bride, but with ratty hair.  Out.

    • E. D.

      OUT – the only thing I like is the jewelry.  

    • Lori Wade Miller

      It would be a nice dress for a second wedding.  Or third.  Or fourth.

    • f_yeah_marie

      IN, as much as I hate to admit it

    • Marguerite

      Out. Hair is messy. Make-up fails to hide the fact that she looks exhausted. It also fails to make either eyes or lips pop, going so neutral that it’s as though her face just blends in with the blandness that is the dress.  And the rings are a little too much. Jewelry over-use can’t make up for lack of polish above the neck, imo. 

    • xmixiex

      “way too many diamonds on one hand”?!??!  impossible!

    • leave_Blake_alone

      IN. Too many diamonds? On JLo? NO SUCH THING!

    • Sara Munoz Munoz

      I love it!! The dress, the shoes, the matchy everything (this is JLo in her signature color after all.)

      And an AMEN on the nails. 

      ETA: This is IN, of course.

    • Snailstsichr

      OUT. Hate the manicure and her hair needs a conditioner, but mainly this dress does not flatter her figure. This does her hips and thighs no favors. And lipstick would have relieved the bland-ness. Or some honkin’ huge colored earrings like Beyonce wore to the inauguration.

    • Sam Smith

      Like the rings.

    • Ayana

      The facial expression: Over it.

      The hair: Sad puppy.

    • ChiKat67

      Out for the cray mani, matching shoes & visible bra/spanx lines.

    • ojosazules

      Out. Hate the apron and it does bad things to her figure.

    • carolynmo

      Out. Yes, you’re being too nice. I’ve already commented on this site about that go-to facial expression. Everything is just too tight. Her makeup is always over-done. Is she trying to look older and tacky? I’m baffled.

    • ScarlettHarlot

      Out, if for nothing other than the excessive amount of rings on her fingers. 

    • Laura

      Don’t like the shoes, but IN. 

    • Jangle57

      I don’t think that peplum is doing her shape any favors; if she didn’t have hips, it would be ok but she does (as in hourglass figure) and it just accetuates them more.  Plus I agree that it looks like it’s made from foam rubber or something squishy like that.  Shoes don’t help.  Not feeling generous today so OUT 

    • Susi R


    • schadenfreudelicious

      is she capable of a different facial expression?..please close your mouth every now and again JLo just so we know you can….

      • DinaSews

        I am so sick of this face! Trying way too hard to look sexy.  Before her idol stint and musical comeback she seemed to have much more joy on her face.  She looks so full of herself that anything she wears annoys me. OUT.

        • schadenfreudelicious

          totally agree, enough with the “sexy time” face!

    • Magdalena Monzerrat Ontiveros

      she looks great! 

    • hmariec19

      She, I could not care less about.  But I WANT those shoes the model is wearing.  Super cute.

    • marilyn

      Out.  This is a bridesmaid dress.  I like the expression on her face in the first photo.  She looks kind and pretty.  In the other photos, she is getting her godzilla look revved up.  

    • fireontiger

      Out. Snooze!

    • SewingSiren

      What on earth is the fabric? It looks like a fleece or foam backed stretch knit. Stretched just beyond it’s maximum capacity. 

    • SophiaPehawkins

      In just for the reverse French manicure.

    • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      OUT. For insisting on the silly diva facial expressions. 

    • GorgeousThings

      Except for the stink face and the tacky manicure, I give it an IN.

    • altermyego

      It’s gorgeous for the right venue. I have no idea if this is the right venue for this dress or not but I do think she looks gorgeous.

    • TSkot

      She looks dynamite and not the least bit bridal to me.  IN

    • kckris

      Like others before me, out..manicure alone is RUINT!

    • VioletFem

      IN. I don’t think it looks bridal, mainly because of the length. This whole look could have been kicked up a notch if she had worn a  more interesting pair of shoes. 

    • teensmom99

      Out, out, out and not least of which because of the Real Housewives hair.  The rings also say real housewife to me. When she had dark hair, white looked much better.  And I don’t like the dress.  and the reverse french manicure is just silly.  

    • appliquer

      Agree that it looks good except for the weird facial expressions (guess she’s trying to look sexy – why? :)) and backwards nail application.

    • Samantha Biddle


    • Judy_J

      OUT.  Boring and bridal.  Plus her hair is a mess and I hate that manicure with the fire of 1,000 flaming suns.

    • ringthing

      JLo is at the top of my irrational celebrity hate list so she gets an automatic out. If anyone wants to argue that that seems irrational, I quote the Dowager Countess, “I’m a woman. I can be as contrary as I please.”

    • l_c_ann


      She proves that one can wear so many very small diamonds that they lose their recognition as diamonds and come across as costume jewelry. 

      And the top is too tight to contain her assetts.

    • mjude


    • nerdykitten

      -overdone bitch face
      -my gosh, if you’re going to wear something that tailored and sleek then nix the beach hair and go for a classy but simple updo
      -accessories too matchy
      -make up too one-dimensional

    • PeggyOC

      In, with the caveat that it’s JoLo, so it’s tight, blinged out and slightly crazy.  Nothing really wrong with it.

    • CatherineRhodes

      OUT. Although I wish I had the opportunity to have “way too many diamonds on one hand.”

    • Jessi03

      I kinda love it.  She looks as chic as she gets.  In.

    • stubbornthoughts

      I’m expecting a line of drool to come seeping from her open mouth any second.

      If her hair was up (I think she looks better with her hair up for some reason), I’d give this an in. But it’s not, so out.

    • foodycatAlicia

      In, just for the bitch-face. 

    • mhleta

      OUT. 1) The lack of color makes her look anemic 2) The fact that you can see the line of her foundation garment on her thighs is a buzz kill, 3) the reverse French manicure is silly 4) I’ve had it with her, “I’m so fierce” face. All it does is make her look terribly insecure.  The reigning champion of Latinas in White remains Eva Mendes in anything white, but especially the 66th Golden Globes. Can’t touch it.   

    • prettybigkitty

      OUT.  J Lo please close your mouth.  You look incredibly congested.  I can hear you breathing from here.

    • Alison McAfee

      IN, love the nails/rings

    • butterflysunita

      IN. The look is different, which is refreshing. Hard to believe this is the same woman wandering around NYC dressed as Catwoman. 

    • Lilithcat

      1.  Her hair needs conditioning.

      2.  Her manicurist put the French manicure on backwards.

      3.  Too many rings.


      • janierainie

        And some of the rings are really cheap looking and the bracelets are snoozerville. 

    • neofashionista


    • OrigamiRose

      Even though I like it, I refuse to vote “in” on account of those hideous nails.  Those are god-awful, look-ruining monstrosities. OUT.

    • Henry Maler

      OUT. I can’t be the only one that’s over the peplum.

    • crash1212

      OUT. I’m totally over this peplum-love thing going on these days. OVER! And anybody who sports…what…a reverse-french manicure is an automatic OUT in my book. Love the rings. And am surprisingly drawn to the shoes…although like the version the model sports a bit better…something about the shape of the toe box is very pleasing.

    • MzzPants

       This outfit does not scream ‘tricks on the corner’, therefore I give it an IN.

    • lrhg

      I don’t mind the dress but fierce shoes and a better clutch could have taken the look further away from “bridal” and closer to chic. 

    • Bethany Roullett

      OUT.  Snore.

    • jw_ny


      The dress is just ok…dislike the bow.   Her hair needed to be more styled…this looks fried, which is odd because the other day, while she was in that silly supervillain leopard suit, her hair looked really good.

    • girliecue

      Lorenzo and Tom, I know how you hate to start a rumor so I’m sure you are not suggesting that JLo plans to marry her boy toy on a RUNWAY in an effort to be the most talked about celebrity wedding this year.

      Since you two are most assuredly are NOT intimating Miss Lopez plans to marry her love of fashion with her love of, well, marriage, and that fact that you said bridal, JLo and red carpet all in one paragraph shouldn’t be construed as a hint about a wacky celebrity wedding, I give her an In for looking lovely. If she happens to look a bit bridal….oopsies!

    • Imasewsure

      I’m going to go with OUT because “boring and bridal” pretty much sums it up. Not tacky or trashy… just milk toast with diamonds

    • Elizabeth Denton

      I can’t get past the manicure. So bad.

    • YourLibrarian

      OUT. Hate the bow, the material of the dress looks thick and odd, the manicure is cray, her hair is stringy, and her makeup is making her look tired. 

    • elleg929

      OUT – the shoes make it too bridal and the reverse-semi french manicure is just plain weird.

    • bertkeeter

      For LANVIN…it’s flaterring as hell. Alber likes his shapeless sack ya know….Is she EVER off a red carpet?

        When I open a new box of cereal, she shows up in my kitchen. 

    • imspinningaround

      Jennifer, close your mouth.  Linda Evangelista you ain’t.

    • MajorBedhead

      Horrible, over-processed hair and a ridiculous manicure, but most of all, it’s a neoprene dress. I think that’s an automatic out. 

    • Wendi126

      Jenny from the block..of ice

    • EverybodysStarling

      The reverse french nails are just wrong. 

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      She looks fine, but I really prefer her in super villain mode. Not a lot can carry it like Ms. Lo. 

      But the reverse French manicure? Absolutely not. OUT. Slap your manicurists. All of them.

    • Elana Bryan

      She looks good – I like the interesting manicure, but her hair is looking a bit tortured, no?

    • snarkykitten

      now thems are some pinterest nals

    • Puck Thornton


      The seams look wonky, the hair looks tired, the makeup could use a pop of colour, the shoes are bland, those nails are sloppy, her bra is giving her fourboobs.

    • Lisa_Cop


    • Lauren Lynch Fox

      Out. I know it is Lanvin, but something about the way she looks in it just looks cheap.

    • MaryAlice Finley Davis

       Way out.

    • bailey debruynkops

      you are being too nice. out

    • Jenna621

      I am confused by her reverse French manicure.  The fact that they are also growing out is kind of tacky.  But I will give her an IN for not looking like she usually does.

    • BayTampaBay


    • sweetlilvoice

      In, but I still like her in butt freezing leopard. I’m kind of intrigued by her nail polish. What is that? A reverse French manicure? 

    • B_C_J

      I think the dress fits just fine. It looks sleek and definitely chic. The fact that it’s white does not in any way bother me. I would have preferred a more interesting shoe, though.  As for the hair, it is an undeniably dry, lifeless disaster but when I compare this look to the “leopard hooker” look from yesterday, I have to say that I will vote this an IN every time. 

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      OUT. She’s trying wwaaaaaaayyyy tooooooooo haaaaarrrrrdddd!

    • tereliz

      OUT. The waist makes her look thicker than she is, she looks tired and her hair looks fried. 

    • samo_samo

      IN…I think she looks good. Yeah, if you hand her a bouquet and slap a bridal facinator on her head she’d be ready for wedding #4 (or is it 5?). Chic, expensive and age appropriate, well done Ms Lopez!

    • kikisayshi

      The dress is way too tight, even for J-Lo. Tight and white only go together if you’re talking underwear.  She could have done much better. OUT.

    • Aly Light


    • MoHub

      Her face is getting into Joan Rivers territory.

    • amanda lynn

      IN – and i like her manicure.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I like it….but a more kick-ass pair of shoes would have zhushed this look a bit more.

    • ballerinawithagun

      I may have missed someone saying this but to me it looks like her long line girdle (I guess that would be Spanx) seems to be showing on her thighs.

    • Gus Casals

      If we are talking just the dress, it’s an IN for the reasons you mention. He coloring works nicely with the white and the dress is more interesting than the average bride. Hair is a mess, as are bling and shoes, but I cannot bring myself to “out” her given other disasters more deserving.

    • Kent Roby

      I’m so bored with Ms Lo that I’m not sure that she could wear anything that would get me sartorially excited.  God, I almost wish she’d have a Britney head-shaving moment just to change things up.  I guess that qualifies as an “out”, since “whatever” isn’t an option.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      In for the dress.  Out for hair and shoes.

    • marlie

      I think she looks great. Everything fits well (isn’t painted on), and it’s a *simple* white dress, which is not the route she usually takes.

      Other than the open-mouth pose, and the hair desperately in need of a hot oil treatment, she is IN all the way for me!

    • A Shiny O’Connor

      Don’t be fooled by the rocks that she got. The woman has balls to wear bridal considering she’s looks like she’s wearing all of her engagement and wedding rings on one finger.

    • melanie0866

      OUT.  Too tight, too Mother-of-the-Bride, and she stuck her Lee Press-On French Manicure Nails on upside down.

      Also, it’s January.  Strapless and white.  In January.  No.

    • RebeccaKW

      In.  I like the dress and I like it on her.  I hate the shoes, and I wish her hair was better.  But overall, I like it.

    • Introspective

      she looks fab, but the hair is looking fried. between the do here and that crazy ass people cover she did, where her tresses are screaming for a deep conditioner, methinks its time for jenny to get a good cut and style and rip out those burnt toast extensions…

    • Emily Smith

       is meh an option? i don’t feel strongly enough about to give an in or and out to it.  so…meh?  also what did she do with her nails?  they confuse me.  it’s like a reverse french manicure.

    • m0r0

      The reverse French Manicure is hysterical. The shoes suck. But the bitch face needs to be slapped right off. I would also like to say for the record I would LOVE too many diamonds on one hand.

    • MissMariRose

      OUT for the backward French manicure alone. 

    • PaulaBerman

      Oh, she is out, because she looks like a middle aged bride at her third wedding. I just can’t with her. ETA: Reverse French manicures are disturbing.

    • formerlyAnon

      In. Nothing exciting, but she looks good and not tacky. The only thing I actively don’t like is the manicure – that white line breaks the line of her fingers and makes them look shorter. Picky, I know, but hands are a thing with me.

      In other news, she’s getting her damn money’s worth (and workout time’s worth). She could get away with shaving nearly a decade off her age.


    • heartbot

      I just hate the silhouette. I’ll be so happy when peplums go away forever.

    • MsBusy

      No to the neoprene peplum!

    • kingderella

      IN, i guess. id rather vote SHRUG, if that option existed.

    • RocknRollmom

      The dress is beautiful.  JLo’s details make it an out.  Hair needs to be brushed, way too many diamonds (I can’t believe I just typed that), shoes are dull.  I can’t quite put a finger on it, but it/she just looks cheap and lord knows all that “stuff” is not.  She doesn’t carry this off well at all.

    • littlemac8

      Will the front-only peplum spawn pregnancy rumors??

    • MishaFoomin

      The backward french manicure creeps me out, as if her nails are growing into the fingers. Other than that, too low key, so out.

    • Eovaai

      IN. It’s working for her despite not being terribly imaginative

    • Shawn EH

      Out. Dull.

    • Celandine1

      Well I like the jewelry and her makeup. HATE the hair. I think this dress is not flattering to her body, maybe because the neoprene is thick. OUT. Will take supervillain JLo any day over sad scuba bride.

    • Andrea Lane

      I don’t understand why her french manicure is on backwards.

      Out. I’m bored.

    • Alloy Jane

      Good Grief, close your MOUTH.  Still, “in” as this is much less annoying than normal.  The general look is ok, and details are meh to ugh, like the bridal shoes, the stupid nails, too much jewelry, and nude lip.  But still, an “in” for her foam “married by a judge” wedding dress.

    • Trisha26

      “IN” I guess. Her hair looks blah and dried out. Two of those 16 too many rings are nearly identical. I hate the shoes. But compared to her usual schtick – it’s pretty inoffensive, almost pretty.

    • Noelle Haland

      IN. I think she looks quite lovely (annoying bitchface notwithstanding), though I would have like to see different shoes & clutch, maybe something with a little bit of color. Overall, though, the dress is interesting and it suits her quite nicely. I’d love to see it in a great color.  

    • librarygrrl64

      OUT. Too “second wedding.” Awful hair and nails, cracktastic amount of jewelry.

    • conniemd

      In, simple and she does look grand in white.

    • unbornfawn

      OUT.  What is with those racktastic nails.

    • Merneith

      Out. I can’t believe you boys didn’t even mention her tragic hair. And the clutch looks cheap, too.

    • guest2visits

      It’s bridal. Sexy bridal; according to the steamy, diva face she’s serving.  I am loving the jewelry, though.
      I loved her outrageous JLo watches and such with the fancy hearts, way back when; not exactly elegant but I thought they were fun.

    • Donna Schmidt


    • out for a walk

      OUT! I demand extravagant leopard-print villainy for flesh-and-blood JLo to live up to platonic-ideal JLo.

    • GTrain

      I love your analysis of why/when she wears white. So she’s OUT.

    • Stephanie

      Out.  She looks like the newest edition to the First Wives Club.  

    • gubblebumm

      out…mashes the ladies making them look like the are a few inches above belly button….shes too curvy for a dress that is supposed to add curves to the curveless

    • quiltrx

      OUT.  Just say no to wetsuit dress (is it unfinished at the bottom?).  And her fricking hair looks like STRAW up close.  Yick.

      I’ll take those two bracelets, though.

    • William Thill

      IN.   Bitch is serving it.   You just hailed Katherine Z-J for serving up “Rich Bitch”  realness.  Same here. Luxury, Bitches.   

    • Pop Tarts Jen

      Pretty, but too bridal. Don’t love the shoes. OUT. Go back to the supervillain getups, girl!

    • emchicago

      Her skin is so beautiful.  I think she could pass for being in her late 20’s.  she looks great. IN

    • nannypoo

      Well, it’s not slutty. That’s a nice change. Her version of bitchface is pretty scary.

    • Katie Agnew

      Out. Is that neoprene? And please close your mouth.

    • Louise Bryan

      *Yawn*  Whatever…  Okay “in” 

    • Alex McGeagh

      Oh with those effing goforsaken peplums! Gah.

    • LuxuryLime

      OUT. The only thing I like is her manicure (which most of the rest of the BKs seem to hate!). Her hair looks really dry and stringy, the dress is Neoprene (NOT a dress fabric, in my opinion – she’s like the fanciest SCUBA diver in the world!), the shoes are boring. 

    • sk8tfan

      Completing the bridal theme, she’s wearing what appears to be Bella’s engagement ring from the Twilight series.

    • demidaemon

      OUT. I’m sorry JLO, but there is not enough drag queen here. It is to yawn.

    • Jitka Pavlíková

      I hate that reversed french manicure.

    • subwaycars

      In, partially because I am strangely in love with her manicure.,

    • RzYoung

      It’s ok enough to be IN but those upsidedown nails are gross and make my legs feel funny

    • RzYoung

      ps, have you seen the coat she was wearing to the event? Really lovely, also white but tres chic

    • TRSTL

      Well, after three marriages and divorces, she should be able to wear a wedding dress with some degree of ease.  She looks fine her but just that, fine.  The shoes are dull as dirt, the jewelry overdone and the hair looks a tad on the ragged side.  Killer shoes with some color or punch and a great clutch to boot would have done this better.

    • Jeff Warhurst

      I don’t get the allure of this woman at all.  

    • Jamie Sanders

      I don’t mind the dress so much, but her hair looks really overprocessed and fried and I hate the nails.

    • mmc2315

      Too bridal.  Too boring.  OUT.

    • Anplica Fiore

      Her make up & jewelry are nice.  


    • lalahartma


    • PeaceBang

      She looks absolutely exhausted. Poor Jenny. The outfit is hideous. OUT.

    • kalisa

      Is that dress foam? Fleece? And again (still?) with the press-on nails, Lovah? 

    • barbarienne

      My reaction is “meh.” If she walked past me on the street in this getup, I wouldn’t even notice her.

      But it doesn’t repel. I’m torn. Is this an “innocent until proven guilty” situation, where inoffensive = lukewarm in, because outs must have specific flaws? Are we grading on a curve? Or are we grading against a star’s “persona”? What about the venue? She’s going to a screening of a filler-season action movie, which wouldn’t normally require much, but she’s the female lead of the movie. Oh, jeez.

      I’m going with very lukewarm in. She looks fine, she’s not required to be all decked out for this.

      Can we see what Statham was wearing and judge him?

    • Deborah Lipp

      Her hair is fried and her French manicure is on upside-down. 

    • amaranth16

      This effing manicure trend. I hate it so much.  It’s like your roots are showing, and they’re dead.  Gross.

    • ZnSD

      mutha of the bride realnesssss! LOL, no just kidding. And I just can’t with those NAILS. UGH.

    • Samantha Irene

      I can’t say I love the dress (especially the peplum/bow area). But I do love, love, love the hair color the makeup and the nail polish – I’m painting my nails like that today, and going to make an appointment a the salon ASAP to get that color. So I have to give her an IN!

    • Pudgy Possum

      Her makeup doesn’t look very “fresh” and her hair is too light. J-Lo has to take it down a notch and showcase her natural beauty a little more (this is not a comment on these clothes specifically, but her look in general).

    • Vera

      Kinda demure for JLo, but so so bad. IN.

    • Rebecca Jay

      The dress looks like fancy-cake fondant.  And that manicure is just gross.

    • Roxanne Pedro
