Jennifer Lopez for Harper’s Bazaar Magazine

Posted on January 07, 2013

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.

And now, pictures:

Tom Ford Spring 2013 Collection

Fendi Spring 2013 Collection

 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.

      They look like Stock Photos for Caesar’s Palace. Also, that Tom Ford “dress” is hiddy. 

      • http://twitter.com/herong Heron

        SHE’S NOT EVEN IN THOSE PLACES!!!  Shopped for SURE. Look at her FEET! They’re floating 2 inches off of that goddamned marble!!

        • http://profile.yahoo.com/DNWEFT2SVBX5T3NPMROQCT4U2U jennyv

          They’ve photoshopped her into a cardboard cutout! 

          • calimon

            Since when as she ever been more than two-dimensional (well, except for her rear end)?

            • http://profile.yahoo.com/DNWEFT2SVBX5T3NPMROQCT4U2U jennyv

              Ha! So true.

        • JosephLamour

          Oh, weird–  There’s no shadow from her heel in the Tom Ford picture, you’re totes right. You would think they would have photoshopped the awkward out of that pose too…

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1208138556 Sara Munoz Munoz

            Her sleeve has a shadow, but not the rest of her. Awkward indeed.
            I can’t believe people get paid to do that to pictures.

          • DeborahJozayt

            But they gave her a halo. That’s valuable, right?

        • kimmeister

          The first pair of gladiator boots doesn’t even appear to have a heel!

        • http://www.facebook.com/AdriannaGrezak Adrianna Grężak

          That explains the “I’m standing awkwardly in front of a white sheet” look. I’d imagine it’d be easier to pose/model if you’re on location and inspired by whats around you

      • NC_Meg

         That Tom Ford dress will never not be hilarious to me.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=720345526 Elif Simge Fettahoglu

        She is in Çırağan Palace in Bosphorus, she was here a while back for 3 (packed up!) concerts and that’s when the photoshoot was held on location. Though I might add photography doesn’t even make a good job of Bosphorus as a backdrop. 
        Apart from the last one, which is quite oversaturated, the colour and light is definitely Istanbulite. But the composition of the horizontal elements are way slanted, giving the impression of haphazardness.

      • xmixiex

        I LOVE IT.  I DIE.

    • SewingSiren

      Has she had her hair gilded?

      • StellaZafella

         She’s Barbie from the Block.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000664956046 Irish Rodriguez Reyes

      Hate to say this but her cover looks pretty good.  The editorial is borderline mediocre but that interview is a late Christmas gift from the baby Jesus.  Can’t wait to get my issue in the mail to read the rest of the hilariousness! 

    • http://twitter.com/Lily1129 Lily

      Dead eyes. They’ve photoshopped the life right out of her. I feel like I’m looking at a stiff mannequin. 

    • newleaf1

      Oh, for Gawd’s sake – this woman is really starting to get on my nerves.

      • EveEve

        What, you don’t like her understated elegance?!

      • Sartorial_She

        Seriously? Dressing herself or brushing her child’s hair is a big, elegant accomplishment in the world of JLo? Shut the fuck up. Looks like “Jenny from the Block” has completely lost her grasp on reality.

        • Lily-Rygh

           My life must be the absolute pinnacle of elegance, because I actually — gasp! — do my own laundry! 

          (Try not to swoon, fellow bitter kittens.  There are only so many servants to pick you up from the floor.)

        • DeborahJozayt

          There’s a documentary out now called “The Queen of Versailles” about a normal middle class woman who married a billionaire. They fell on “Hard times” after the ’08 crash, and it was amazing how, after 20 years away from middle class life, she completely lost all sense of what’s normal. She went up to a Hertz rental car kiosk at an airport to rent a car, and didn’t realize that rental cars didn’t come with drivers. It completely went right over her head. 

          I think JLo has reached that level of stupidity.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=13953311 Missy Covington

      I really want that Tom Ford dress. Not that I’d have anywhere appropriate to wear it. I’d just have to go to regular parties, spread my arms dramatically and stage whisper “Drama!” with every unfurling. 

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=13953311 Missy Covington

         (It’d be like a low-rent Angel of Death! Fun!)

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1401197785 Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

        Can I be the minion that operates the mini fan?

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=13953311 Missy Covington

           The sleeves are big enough to hide at least two fan-wielding minions.

      • Sobaika

        You and me both.

      • merciblahblah

         I LOVE your stage-whispered “Drama!” Could SWEAR I’ve seen Gwen Stefani in that Tom Ford, and she pulled it off way better than J Lo ever could. Not that I can find a picture of it now. Or maybe I just pictured it in my head (where she STILL pulled it off way better…)

        • kimmeister

          I thought it was Gaga?

        • hyperionic

          Probably just imagined it. Naomi Watts wore it in black and she looked terrible. 

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=505225633 Nicola Anna Molly Page

          she wore it in the No Doubt video they quickly pulled. She rocked it IMHO.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=790818401 Laurie Landry

      It all made me gag after reading the interview blurbs.
      I’m so whatever!

    • kolokOlchik

      She dresses herself and combs her kids’ hair?  Wow, even I have people who do that!

    • l_c_ann

      I can’t help but smile and remember the South Park episode when Cartman makes his fist into Hennifer Lopez (and his fist gets a recording contract.)

      His fist, however, would look fetching in any of the boots shown above.

      • TAGinMO

        Thanks a lot. I will now have “Taco-Flavored Kisses” stuck in my head for at least the rest of the day.

      • JasmineAM

        That episode was AGES ago, and yet whenever I hear about JLo, I will always think of Taco Kisses.

    • http://twitter.com/shiningcui Shanying Cui

      She looks dazzling! But does anyone else think the 2nd picture with the yellow Balmain dress make her head somehow look disproportionate/photoshopped on?? 

      • vandeventer

         Yep, I thought so too… looks like glaringly bad photoshop.

        • AthenaJ

          Some of the worst photoshop I’ve seen (and that’s saying something!)

      • MilaXX

         I think because they downsized her curvy body.

    • Carolyn Warfield

      Styling is dated–it all looks like a late 90s video.  And I can’t with the cocker spaniel hair.

      • kimmeister

        Her hair is strangling her in every picture!

      • gsk241

         I know!  That cocker spaniel hair is all I can see in any those pictures.

    • hillmad

      Yes, I hate when the housekeeper moves things into my spa, too! And you’re right, there’s nothing more elegant and beautiful than dressing yourself (!) picking up your kids’ clothes…

    • Valerie Jones

      Now, why isn’t Hathaway wearing THAT black Tom Ford dress?

      • ecallaw1977

         Because Naomi Watts already wore it and stole that moment.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VZLU6YVO4BRTELTTH3GRAAMWZQ Dot

      Oh dear God…those interview excerpts are truly priceless. You have to wonder if people like this ever listen to themselves speak for just a moment.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        The interview excerpts are so entertaining- thanks, JLO, for the chuckle.

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

      That Versace is so very her. I am disappointed though “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.” isn’t nearly as good as soundbite as the epic post-separation interview.

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

         I’m just dying to know exactly how those things make her a better parent.

        • ampg

          All right, I’ll bite.  Every single clip from this interview reads like an Onion-style parody of a celeb, but I at least get what she was going for with that.  It’s the idea that being fulfilled as a person (which often means professionally, at least in part) makes one a better parent.  And I’ll agree with that sentiment, even though it pains me.

          • Sobaika

            Exactly that. What she’s saying for most part makes sense, they’re just worded so poorly/hilariously/pretentiously. 

          • Kayceed

            More celebrities need someone to translate their inarticulate spoutings to the press. Although that would be much less fun for the BKs. 

        • Introspective

          why not? those things make me a better parent. 

          when my kid’s diaper needs changing, I don a sparkly dress, a gladiator shoe and and get my autotune on. just to get my juices flowing for the wet wipe/poop/new diaper routine.

        • j_anson

          She can receive groveling adoration from recording industry minions rather than demanding it constantly from her kids? That has to be a win for them.

        • MilaXX

           I must be tired or getting sick because in some weird way this makes sense. I think what she’s saying in her own obnoxious way is because she does the things she loves professionally, she can be a better parent.

          *hangs head in shame*

          • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

            I do get that a woman who is a well-rounded and happy individual makes a better parent than one who isn’t.  Some women just don’t get to find their happiness in their private spa with their Grammy’s dresses.

    • almondemy

      Wow, the Balmain looks downright skanky.  I think J.Lo is officially “of a certain age”, too…  I mean, seriously, these look totally muttony on her now.

    • Sobaika

      It’s weird that they gave her such heavy cocker spaniel hair when almost all of the dresses have strong shoulders, higher necklines, etc. Not a smart move.

      • ampg

        She PAID for that hair, and it’s going to be in ALL the pictures, dammit!

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      “Xena, Warrior Stripper”! Oh Dear God, that is so perfect.  JLo is in her own special crazy diva category. The gladiator sandals are hilarious.  The Tom Ford dress-odd.

    • http://www.facebook.com/fiddlecub Kevin VanOrd

      Yes, JLo. Being an actress, a performer, a singer, and a dancer naturally make you a better mother and a better person. It worked exactly the same way for Britney.

      I just can’t. That whole statement is such a huge WTF that I wonder if she really is that deluded. “I dance and sing and act so that makes me a good mommy!” Jesus.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      I see that she now has such a big life that she must send her cyborg self to these photoshoots because she is far too busy elegantly brushing her children’s hair and picking up after them.

      • RebeccaKW

         I love that she states she has A. a housekeeper and B. a spa where she gets her hair and makeup done (which implies someone else does it), yet she says that she picks up after the kids and brushes their hair.  This girl is crazy and I love it.

        • Kayceed

          Well, having A. and B. does tend to open up one’s schedule.

    • EditKitten

      Oh, good, she’s still an asshole.

    • EditKitten

      Only someone who NEVER HAS TO DO THOSE THINGS would find them “elegant.”

      • Beardslee

         so true!  I never found combing food out of a small child’s hair elegant, but then doing so was not optional for me.
        Hers are the musings of someone who lives in the stratosphere.

      • RebeccaKW

         I think that’s the only way she can make herself do them. She can’t look at it as something every parent has done. It has to be this special J-Lo moment.  She probably has a soundtrack on while she does it.

    • poggi

      The Tom Ford looks dramatic and very elegant on the model, but on J Lo it looks cheap–perhaps it’s the white or seeing the low cut back or the black gladiator strappy heels. Or maybe it’s just the wearer.   I have to go now; my simple and elegant life requires that I finish making the pierogi.

    • random_poster

      I’d love to see an interview-off between JLo and Gwynnie P.  The interviewer would ask both the same questions to see which of the two wins for most pretentious responses. 

      • Sobaika

        My money’s on Gwynnie. I find her to be insufferable yet think JLo is (unintentionally) hilarious. I just can’t take her seriously when she was the one who popularized Juicy sweats and sang alongside Ja Rule.

        • http://twitter.com/lisledanielle Danielle Lisle

          Those velour sweats were the only part of Jenny that actually came from the block. Now I’ve got that song in my head, gravelly Ja Rule and all.

          • Sobaika

            And when I’m feeling sexy
            Who’s gonna comfort me??
            My only problem is
            Their insecurity
            Tired of being alone – Yeah yeah
            Sick of arguin on the phone – Yeah yeah

            The aughts were a terrible time for both fashion and music.

        • DeborahJozayt

          You know, there’s a documentary coming up called “$ellabrity” where various celebrities talk about paparazzi hounding them. JLo and Marc Anthony do their interviews together. I’m only watching it just to see their interviews. Gonna be absolutely hysterical!

      • BrooklynBomber

        I’m just disappointed that she didn’t say, “As a mother, as a woman . . .”

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1208138556 Sara Munoz Munoz

          She paraphrased, IMO. :)

          • BrooklynBomber

            I want it all! “I’m a singer. I’m a dancer. I’m a performer. I’m an actress. I’m a wife, a mother, a woman. I’m a citizen soldier. A humanitarian.”

            • decormaven

              “And a citizen of the stars!” Don’t forget that one. Thank you, hilarity gods, for this wonderful interview. It’s classique!

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/DNWEFT2SVBX5T3NPMROQCT4U2U jennyv

        The magazine would have to include a special J.Lo or GOOP brand barfbag ;)

      • SoThenISaid

         And then they can talk about what it’s like to date Ben Affleck. Isn’t it odd that they have that in common?

    • filmcricket

      That first photo is hilarious. It’s JLo, in gold fringe, giving the ingenue head-tilt. Cognitive dissonance, activate!

      She looks pretty good in everything else, I must admit. She’s certainly pulling that Tom Ford dress off better than Naomi Watts did, although neither of them look as good as the model. Also, if we are about to embark on another couple of seasons of gladiator sandals, I’m just going to set fire to everything now.

      Bad Jenny, Bad!!

    • GorgeousThings

      I smell desperation. As in, “I may be 40, the mother of two and divorced several times, but I’m still hawt!”

      I do love the Tom Ford dress as done in black. In white it just looks Miami tacky.

    • lrober03

      I’m really loving the red/dark red lip on her though

      • MilaXX

         I give her credit for almost always having a perfectly beat face.

      SO over this woman. “Big?” As in stuffed? As in excessive? And a whole lotta attitude for some only OK shots.

    • halleygee

      That photo of her in the white dress looks silly – like she’s trying to fly. The black version looks so stunning on the model.
      And, I dress myself and brush my kids hair to make my life beautiful? My life must be pretty damn gorgeous!

    • alyce1213

      ” . . . and I need to brush my children’s hair because elegance.”  I’m DYING from that; you are too funny.

      And how about the exact same face and pose in almost EVERY photo?

    • MilaXX

      I must be turning immune to her level diva – ness. I read that article and didn’t need to roll my eyes once. I actually like  the photo spread. She look better than the  model in all of the shots. If you are going to wear those silly Tom Ford boots than go whole hog and wear them in a metallic finish. She is also wearing that bat wing dress better than Naomi Watts (I think) did.

      • Violina23

        I felt like I *should* be offended by it, but I mostly just laughed :-)

    • MissMariRose

      Of course.

    • j_anson

    • http://twitter.com/tymczasowa its complicated

      there is no way her ass fits into that yellow dress. also, there is a reason why the first photo is cropped as it is. love big butts, but seriously, who are they trying to fool here

    • kimmeister

      I hate how, on the cover, her hair, eyes, dress, and the background are basically the same color.

    • Judy_J

      When I read her quotes, one word came to mind: “Vapid” (according to Webster’s: vapid woman, obsessed by her own elegance).  Only I don’t really think of “elegant” when I think of JLo. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1594250515 Kim Brightman

    • crash1212

      Wow. Not feeling any of these pictures or any of the fashion really. Shoe choice is horrendous. This is the best Bazaar photogs and stylists can do? blech. Love the quotes though…I too was feeling elegant as I dressed myself this morning.

    • Imasewsure

      I think these would all be fun and Jennilicious on the RC but she’s just not a model and these all look awkward. Love her cluelessness – for some reason, it’s funny coming from her and would be insufferable from anyone of lesser divahood (and of course I don’t have to know her so that makes it easier too).

    • AnnPopovic

      At some point you just have to say ‘why bother’, don’t you? I mean, there’s SO much Photoshop it may as well be a grad project for CS6. I mean, the yellow one? Her head doesn’t match the body. It’s perspective-gone-kablewey 101. 

    • AthenaJ

      If knowing how to dress oneself = elegance, then I’m !#$%ing IMAN!

    • Trisha26

      Her mother must have told her it was improper for a lady to show a lot of leg, hence the knee-high footwear. That dress on the mannequin/spa comment is insane. So glad she’s no longer an Idol judge.

    • guest2visits

      Her head was having a conversation that she didn’t realize she was saying out loud.
      However; these outrageous designer threads look like they were made just for her. Diva but beautiful anyway.

    • Nonmercisansfacon

      Those quotes killed me. Dead.  She has memorized this “singer, dancer, performer, actress” thing hasn’t she? Today, I’m going to do all my chores with elegance, because J-Lo told me it was darn beautiful to do the simple things in life! 

    • http://www.facebook.com/AdriannaGrezak Adrianna Grężak

      Man, this is some pretty bad modeling/posing. I don’t mind the sandals, but feel that the Tom Ford dress doesn’t belong in this editorial. I think the stylist was going for the glam-gladiator look with these clothes. Most are evoking a sense of armor or metal

      Now I’ve been in NYC for six years, there’s no spa on my block…

      The infamous 2000 Grammy Awards dress can’t be in her spa because it’s in the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. Suspicious….

         really? I’ve always heard her says she has it. Perhaps Versace gave them one?

      God, that woman is insufferable. And I am already so over that Tom Ford dress… but something tells me we haven’t seen the end of it.

    • Kathleen Morrison

      She has been photoshopped into Ashley from Revenge in the shot in that white dress.

    • VicksieDo

      I adore that Tom Ford dress and the winged one below it.  
      She is….funny.

    • quiltrx

      Oh, brother!  I don’t know whose blurbs nauseate me more, hers or Gwyneth’s.

      I like the Balmain dress.  That’s all I have to say.

    • Jessica Goldstein

      This woman has always been at the top of my irrational celebrity hate list. Quotes like these make me consider putting her on my RATIONAL celebrity hate list. She’s not working Mel or Charlie levels yet, but she’s getting awfully close!

      Oh, PUKE.  Knee- or thigh-high-heeled leg braces and all.  And a gold Chris March hair dress.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      thanks to your fairy blogsisters, i can’t look at her without thinking “hola lover!”

    • smitnkitn

      For some reason her face seems to be slowing morphing into that hard, middle-aged Madonna look.  If you know what I mean.  Which you may not.  Because that sounded weird even to me.

    • OrigamiRose

      I was halfway through the last quote before realizing it was fake.  But it was so, so very real.

      Perhaps she and Anne Hathaway could have an “Insufferable-Off.” For charity, of course.

    • Dhammadina

      Such a fierce beautiful woman. She can wrangle the clothes. 

    • DinahR

      This must be why I’m not rich, y’all.  I’ve just never found the beauty in picking up my kids dirty socks nor any particular elegance in the fact I dress myself.  Gratitude for those things?  Absolutely.  But I don’t feel like they are special acts or that they make me a better person, parent, actress, singer, dancer, actress.   

      And I see J-Lo specifies combing her *kids’* hair.  Not her own.  Naturally, after Jenny’s dressed herself (!) she’s swanning down the hall to her maid where wardrobe notes from her younger days are lovingly displayed and the ego is massaged with the not-so-subtle notion that she could still wear that dress.  Y’know, if she wanted to.  Then someone ELSE is combing Jen’s hair.  In her spa.  Where she likes to be pretty.  And mannequins aren’t out of place at all.  Just like all us Moms!     

      This article was hilarious!!  And I still gotta admit she looks better in those dresses that the models actually do.  I don’t mind the space age shoes and shimmery dresses.  After all, she’s dialing in from another planet, our Jenny.

      She has no neck!  Also, another vote for the “why does Tom Ford hate women?” group.

    • julnyes

      I feel like she is farting in all these pictures.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VZLU6YVO4BRTELTTH3GRAAMWZQ Dot

        Or possibly holding in a fart.

      Fendi + J.Lo = Xena

      Speaking of mannequins wearing dresses… Oh J Lo, you gorgeous plastic stuffed dummy…

      This is 100% unintentional hilarity. Thank God we have you to translate JLo for us.

      That white Tom Ford dress is a hoot! Contrived and those boot things define bad taste!

    • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

      Jenny’s a goregous woman, but the fact she dresses two decades younger makes her look so desperate. She needs to take a page from the Helen Mirren playbook, and find her sexy/style balance. That Fendi would be tragic on anyone. Looks like a Project Runway challenge.

    • PrunellaV

      Haha. Did someone tell the makeup artist, “Make her look like Sofia Vergara”?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=720345526 Elif Simge Fettahoglu

      She is in Çırağan Palace in Bosphorus, and those places are real. She was here a while back for 3 concerts. Though I might add photography doesn’t even make a good job of Bosphorus as a backdrop.

    • RzYoung

      Freaking awful spaniel hair! In EVERY photo

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=571205045 Kent Roby

      The model is serving Avedon fierceness in that Tom Ford, but Jenny from the block makes it look so hoochie-mamma Real Housewife reject.

    • sweetlilvoice

      I’m obscenely pleased that both her interview and photos are bad.

      Her comments on motherhood are even funnier to me after seeing this pic a couple of weeks ago:

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=14301272 Kate Gorton

      She’s not actually *at* any of those places, right? She looks photoshopped into all of the shots. 

      Looks like they also may have “lightened” her up, at least for the cover. 

      I’m starting to fully hate high-end photography.

    • http://kittysdrawings.com Esz

      They need to fire whoever did the retouching. Awful, shoddy work.

      even in the innocuous land of fashion mag interview oatmeal…still the asshole shines through. Loud and clear to boot.
