Jennifer Lopez in NYC

Posted on January 23, 2013

Part of what makes Diva-ism so fun is that there’s a very fine line separating a true Diva from a supervillain. Miss Jenny, bless her tacky heart, is right on the line here:


Jennifer Lopez out and about in NYC in an A.L.C. ensemble paired with Christian Louboutin boots.

A.L.C. Leopard Print Calfhair and Leather Jacket

A.L.C. Natural Leopard Print Haircalf Davis Skirt

Give that outfit a tail and some cat ears and girlfriend would look quite at home beating up Wonder Woman.

Never stop, J Lo. Never stop.

By the way, we don’t have one ourselves, but we wince in sympathy for your cooch, which must be just about frozen solid right now, given the temperatures at the moment. Unless you’re wearing fur panties, that is. And y’know? We wouldn’t be a bit surprised.

    • Tatiana Luján

      This isn’t bordering diva/supervillain. This is between kardashians – Jersey Shore and high paid hooker.

      • Sobaika

        Way harsh, Tai.

        • Stella Zawistowski

          Thanks a lot! Now I have “You’re a virgin who can’t drive” stuck in my head.

      • Dot

         The boots really are hooker-esque.

        • Alyssa Stanfield

          Especially when paired with a skirt that short! In the item picture, it looks more like a pencil skirt, which would have tipped the look back to diva for me.

          • barbarienne

             Seriously. One more inch (maybe two inches in the back–she’s having booty ride-up) and there would be no problem.

        • patticake1601

           My husband calls thigh high boots “CFMB’s”.  Come F…. Me Boots.

      • m0r0

        Truth hurts but you hit it hard.

      • Aurumgirl

         That’s not fair. Everyone knows highly paid hookers wear much more tasteful clothing than this.

        • Tatiana Luján

          you’re right, I’m sorry. I was thinking about Julia Roberts’ costume in Pretty Woman.

          • sweetestsith

             Technically she wasn’t a high priced hooker at the start of the movie though, she was fairly cheap/average. Made the “transformation” much more dramatic. ;)

      • TRSTL

        Absolutely!  See that dot in the background, way in the distance? That’s the line she crossed a long way back in to Tackyville.

    • Sobaika

      I’m loving this too much.

    • Stella Zawistowski

      The fact that she looks like she’s got a wind machine preceding her every step just completes the look.

      • lovelyivy

         A remarkable achievement considering that in place of “wind machine” she’s actually facing “feels like 10 degrees outside”. THAT is commitment to a look.

    • ChiKat67

      Kinda wish she had gone with just the skirt or the jacket but not both.  But then she wouldn’t be Jenny would she?

      • kimmeister

        Swap out the skirt for some black pants, and I would totally wear this (much lower boots, of course!).  As is, not so much.

        • Sobaika

          But are you a mother, entertainer, and person?

          • DeborahJozayt

            I’m sure Kimmeister keeps her grammy dresses on manikins in her salon room. She gets a pass.

            • kimmeister

              Some days I allow my maid to speak to me, for kicks and giggles!

          • kimmeister

            I am, at least, a person.  Unless I’m a Cylon and don’t know it.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            As a non-mother, non-entertainer, but as a person, I bow to you.

      • foodycatAlicia

         I was wondering whether double leopard was worse than double denim?

        • Kristin McNamara

          Yea… Leopard Tuxedo or Denim Tuxedo. Hard to say which is classier, really.

    • ccinnc

      Speechless at the tackitude.

      • formerlyAnon

        And yet, (IMO) she combines the hallmarks of tacky, in excess, and creates solid JLo win! Girl OWNS her brand.

    • Ashley Hord

      I say “I’m done” at every photo I see of J.Lo. Yet I’m here.

    • Maureen

      Holy Vagina Freeze!

      • DeborahJozayt

        And she doesn’t need a nipple tweaker, either! Talk about saving money!

      • KateShouldBeWorking

         And yet, she’s wearing a turtleneck. Girl, are you cold or not?

      • foodycatAlicia

         It’s a heck of a thrush treatment.

      • chylde

         Va-hee-na Popsicle

    • jw_ny

      her hair and makeup are pretty…

    • StellaZafella

      It’s Diva with a capital ‘D’ when I can think of 3 drag queens who would cut a bitch for that outfit…let’s start with…Raven.

      • Introspective

        let’s keep it going with Willam. and let’s round out the party by throwing in Carmen Carrera for shits and giggles. I could see all of them rocking this ensemble to death.

        Jenny is such a drag queen. and I think she knows it. meow.

      • Lucía Valencia

        I was thinking BeBe.

        • StellaZafella

           That would then make Ms J Lo a “double Diva!”

    • Silly Grrl

      I am not a fan of hers, but I can’t hate on that. I’m loving leopard print lately for some reason. I bet those boots cost more than my car. 

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        I love leopard too, but not head to toe.

        • Silly Grrl

          True. I’d like it more if it were just the skirt or just the jacket. By “can’t hate” I mean it’s okay. :)

    • MilaXX

      There is no one else but JLo who could wear that get up. I kinda love her for it.

    • Lily

      I admire her fortitude at wearing that in the weather we’re having. I won’t venture out without 2 pairs of socks and a parka.

    • Judy_J

      Cougar on the prowl……

    • BayTampaBay

      Is she wearing a skirt,is it a pair of leopard shorts..or…a skort?

      The bottom half looks strange from the back.

      • fursa_saida

        I think the wind was blowing it back up against her. 

    • mjude

      how nice & tacky…typical

    • Annabelle Archer

      It’s a Halloween costume, right?  This is an old shot from October?  Because, really, there’s no excuse otherwise. 

    • Rhonda Shore

      When she dresses down, that is wears clothes that aren’t so short and tight, she can be breathtakingly stunning.  Wish she’d do it more often. 

      • 3boysful

        I think the jacket in this case is not flattering on her.  It makes her look thick thru the middle.  Not that anyone woulc notice, as they are waiting for the wind to flip that skirt . . . .

        I cannot fathom taking a step in stillettos that high.

        • l_c_ann

          Teeter totters used to be playground equipment, maybe teeter totter is now a verb for walking on such near stilts.

    • sablehunter

      Her lack of back of the thigh cellulite is remarkable.

      • Sara L.

        First thing I noticed!

        • Annabelle Archer

          Then she has done her job.

    • Denise Alden

      Of course JLo has fur panties.  (That didn’t sound quite right, did it?)

    • B_C_J

      I love Ms. Lopez. I think she is unbelievably beautiful but this looks a bit tawdry to me.  The skirt is definitely too short (there is NO WAY you can sit down and not have a photo op mishap) and the jacket is adding volume to a woman who has a terrific figure. Additionally it’s a bit too much of leopard print. 
      The boots independently are incredible but paired with that skirt they give off a whiff of street walker.

    • kerryev

      She’s a hoot (“because ELEGANCE!”), but I don’t get the love for her non-red carpet fashion. I think she dresses like she’s on Mob Wives.

      • formerlyAnon

         She DOES dress as if she’s on Mob Wives. On steroids, sometimes. But when her hair and makeup are great (as here) it somehow looks right for her. To me. YMMV.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      Upscale tackiness. Too bad it’s not all that figure-flattering. The skirt is too short especially in the back and in the head-on views she looks like she has a little “baby bump”. That being said, I applaud her for having the tits to rock an outfit like this.

      • kschwarting

        The back view was what did me in–before, it was just typical J. Lo.  But that skirt is too damn short no matter how good her legs are. 

    • filmcricket

      This is so fantastic I have lost my ability to even. It’s the biker-esque leather trim on the jacket that makes it art.

    • GorgeousThings

      I’m scratching my head at the “Natural Leopard Print Hair Calf” name myself. I mean, it’s a print, so it’s not natural, and it’s tanned, so it’s not natural. ALC’s marketing dweebs need to get a clue, because that just comes across as market-speak-gobbledygook.

      I didn’t really mind this outfit, but there’s something about the back, with the boots kind of bunching, that takes the whole thing down a couple of notches.

      • Kathryn Tewson

        I think it’s “natural leopard,” as in “the color a leopard naturally is,” and not “metallic green leopard” or “neon pink leopard.”

        • tereliz

          ROFL, this exactly. 

      • l_c_ann

        Maybe this is the place to ask the question: why do folks decry fur and give tanned leathers a pass.  Both come off of animals and the animal doesn’t regrow them. 

        Which leads to “Hair calf”  ……as in what enclosed veal meat…..

        • BrooklynBomber

          Some people don’t wear fur or leather.

          I think those who only pass on fur feel that if leather is a by-product of the food industry, it’s acceptable to wear, but that since fur animals are raised solely for making coats (etc.), it’s not acceptable.
          Some people eat meat but choose not to eat veal or foie gras because they feel there’s more cruelty involved in raising veal cattle and foie gras geese than there is in raising other livestock. Some only buy meats that were raised in ways considered less cruel.

          Some people don’t eat meat but wear leather. 

          Some people call themselves vegetarian but eat fish.

          In other words, unless someone is truly vegan and abstains from using any and all animal products and by-products, then I think it’s a pretty individual thing.

        • tereliz

          Hell, I eat beef and veal, so I’ll wear cowhide leather or calfskin. I eat rabbit, so I’ll wear its fur. Same goes for goat. 

          Everything else is skinning for the sake of skins, IMO. It takes a lot of little animals to make a full length fur coat. 

    • Trang Nguyen

      Makeup and hair is flawless. Hate this outfit, but I realized that Diva would KILL in a black turtleneck paired with black skinnys. Keep the boots and she’d basically be a Bond girl—nay, VILLAIN. Jenny, make this happen!

      • Sobaika

        Did you catch her on Jon Stewart last night? I’m pretty sure she wore something along those lines: shirt, pants, and boots that were very slim and snug. She looked good.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      I just love the look on her face, especially in the last picture.  “Oh hi.  I didn’t see you there.”

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      I’m really hoping she is not on her way to a parent/teacher conference.

    • muelonil

      I swear I saw that suit in 1990 at 5-7-9.   My mom never would have let me wear it with Pretty Woman boots, though. 

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      Big Ang would cut her for those boots alone.

    • Rand Ortega

      Considering the balls it takes to wear that… uh, outfit, cooch temperature is the least of her worries.

    • tereliz

      Must be windy as well as cold. She’s got one hand deployed as “rear guard” at all times. 

      She’s an inspiration to promiscuous teens everywhere. 

      • formerlyAnon

         Or teens who want to *look* promiscuous. It’s a thing. Been one for waaaay too long. You probably have already noticed.

    • Clueless_Jock

      Fur panties. Okay!

    • Dino Bonačić

      kim kardashian had a child with snookie. >.<

    • e jerry powell

      But that interview she gave on Daily Show?  What was that?

    • stubbornthoughts

      Well this is just plain silly looking.

    • decormaven

      She has to have some type of double sided tape on the back of that skirt to keep her buttocks from flashing.  “I did not lift my skirt, it twirled up!”

    • formerlyAnon

      I pretty much hate animal print anything (it just stamps the seal of tacky down, no appeal, no recourse) – but I love this on her. It’s the hair & boots that make it pull-off-able.

      I think it would’ve been JUST as divalicious if she’d covered that flash of thigh, but I’m impressed at her obliviousness to the elements.

    • A Shiny O’Connor

      I was fooled by the rocks that she got. I forgot that she’s a turn in the road short of being a cast member on Jerseylicious – and Cougar Town, at that.

    • miagain

      go away go away go away….

    • Sandra Oh

      she looks like Jocelyn Wilderbeast.

    • f_yeah_marie

      Ugh, just stop

    • hillmad


    • Julaine Morley

      Being able to see the top of the boots meeting her thighs is what murders the look for me. 

    • Jessie Melcher Brown

      Add black tights and those ears/tail and its a knock out halloween costume.

    • Little_Olive

      Ehh she is crossing the line form “diva” to “desperate” any day now. 

      Anyhoodle, it’s not so much the concept, as the fact that the outfit looks kinda cheap. 


    • ojosazules


    • marilyn

      Her clothes are tacky of course.  However, I am impressed that she has a rather pleasant look on her face.  Most of the time, she has a very sour look, and appears to be trying to get thunderbolts to come out of her eyes and demolish the object of her attention.   Too bad she does not look so relaxed more of the time.

    • Pamela

      I can’t wait to see how desperate she becomes by the time she’s 50.  I can’t with her.

    • Trisha26

      The same skirt in a pencil style ending just above the knee with booties or knee-high boots and I’m on board. This is just working girl all the way. In other words JLo.

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      VPH: Very Pricey Hooker.

    • nannypoo

      She’s a very beautiful woman. I wish she wouldn’t dress like a whore.

    • E. D.

      Replace the skirt with a pencil skirt and use a dark lipstick and this would get out of “high-end stripper on her way home” territory.

    • MinasAunt

      Her outfits don’t surprise me anymore BUT her hair is killing me.  Is that the Donald Trump comb-over?

    • conniemd

      Sympathy for the frozen cooch. LOL. No kidding. It was 10 degrees at 5:00 tonight. Skirt is probably a wee bit too short to be diva. But love JLo nonetheless. Skirt tends to give her thunder thighs, though.

    • libraangel

      How much does she charge for an hour? Is it extra for kinky stuff?

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I just can’t see JLo now without immediately thinking “Hola, lovers”!  Now she’s definitely going to cut any bitch who dares come near her in this outfit.

    • chylde

      To complete this look, she needs a crop in one hand, a big glass dildo in the other, and a jaunty little leather cap.

    • PeaceBang

      Just awful!! 

    • Shawn EH

      J-Lo needs to google “Pantha,” and then call her production company.

    • guest2visits

       Thankyou TLo! Hilarious… who is A.L.C. and what else do their little elves make besides leopard-print calfhair mini-suits?

    • Felicitas Strautman

      tacky as hell..

    • Imasewsure

      Ick… love the boots… hate everything else on her although I could stand the top with a grown up skirt or pants of some kind 

    • Bob Sponge

      Not so Diva-ish to me. More like a courgar uniform.

    • GTrain

      sooooo desperate

    • fursa_saida

      I’ve been reading a lot of comics lately, so I am super into your perspective on this. It 100% saved it for me. She can totally roll with Harley Quinn in this getup.

    • Jeff Warhurst

      She looks like the cheap, overpaid diva wife of a crackhead…  Oh.

    • Howard

      Yikes! she looks cheap  . I guess she really was not in the mood to even try. The pressure to look fashionable all the time  must be intense for celebs but  this is just pathetic . 

    • mmc2315

      Bless her tacky heart, indeed.

    • kathryn_dc

      I can’t stop wondering why shopbop uses the term “haircalf”. Oh, they *are* different! The jacket is “calfhair” and the skirt is “haircalf.”

    • neofashionista

      You are soooo right T LO
      and if any owned fur panties JLO would.

    • librarygrrl64

      Jesus CHRISTMAS, that skirt is short. Too short. Much, much too short.
