J Lo gets the “Xena, Warrior Stripper” treatment in the pages of Harper’s. But first, she wants to be the gift that keeps on giving.
Jennifer Lopez covers the February 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine photographed by Katja Rahlwes and styled by Jodie Barnes.
J Lo? You have the mike.
On her infamous 2000 Grammy Awards dress: “I have that at home. The other day, my housekeeper put it on a mannequin in my spa, where I get my hair and makeup done. She sent me a picture. She was like, ‘You like this dress?’ Um, yeah, but I don’t know if I like it out in the house!”
On her career: “I’m a singer. I’m a dancer. I’m a performer. I’m an actress. That’s what I’m supposed to be doing. It makes me a better parent, a better person.”
On keeping things simple: “I like the whole idea of traveling, of looking good, and doing it well. I make it as simple and as beautiful as I can because my life is kind of big. So I pack my luggage, or dress myself, or comb my kids’ hair, pick up their clothes—that makes our life beautiful, you know? There’s something very elegant in that.”
“One day my housekeeper came into my spa where I like to look good, and she spoke directly to me! And made eye contact! I had her whipped and thrown into the sea, because my life is kind of big and I need to brush my children’s hair because elegance.” Never, EVER change, girl. You are a treasure.

We don’t mind that she’s in all these super-showy, glittery, dresses showing a healthy amount of skin. That’s at least partially her look, after all; diva personified. But we really don’t think every dress needed a knee or thigh-high gladiator sandal paired with it. Once is fine, but with every dress it’s a bit of overkill.
