Jennifer Lopez in Alice + Olivia in East Hampton

Posted on July 25, 2013

East Hampton! The Second-Happiest Place on Earth!

Apparently!

 

Jennifer Lopez and her boyfriend, Casper Smart, out in East Hampton, NY. Jennifer Lopez is wearing a top and shorts by Alice + Olivia paired with Gucci sandals.

Alice + Olivia Spring 2013 Collection

Gucci Anita Flat Thong Sandal

We don’t know what bug is up their collective butt at the moment. It certainly can’t be the photographer, who’s obliging her need to be photographed in an array of high-end items. But we suppose waving and voguing would be considered déclassé so grumpiness it is. Frowns are ever so chic, darlings.

She should cheer up. She looks cute. Although the outfit does seem perhaps a little over-thought for the setting. He looks … whatever.  Generic. Interchangeable. A back-up dancer.

      wow with that booty! i really hate shorts that bunch up like that.

    • Deedles

      Those shorts are doing her NO favors.

      • YoungSally

        I think it’s a onesie — look at the zip in the back. JLo — as another woman of a certain age who is short-waisted and has a long hip drop — if you are going to emphasize your pelvis — move the waistline either higher or (preferably) lower than your natural waistline — otherwise you live a permanent life of Mom Jeans — no matter what your age.

        • 3boysful

          Good eye. This outfit is stumpifying (altho her rear does look nice). And I would have the usual complaint about peeing in a onesie.

          • Rhonda Shore

            Still, look how pretty she is with barely any makeup.

        • annrr

          Sing it sister. not flattering from any angle.

      • Diego!

        I agree 100%!

    • TLJezebel

      Pleats are evil.

      • Lizzy

        YES!!! THIS!!!!! Very very very few people look good with pleats.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      Meh to them both. I see better dressed real folk every day.

      • Fordzo

        I wore my fancy pay-attention-to-my-chest-not-the-pimple-on-my-chin necklace today, so I like to think I’d make your list. I FEEL like I look sassy, anyway.

        • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

          Feeling that way is 99% of the road trip. Own your beauty and your individuality!

          • twocee

            Word. One thing I love about TLo and my fellow BKs is that they don’t advocate ONE way to be attractive or glamorous or sexy. It’s all about choosing the right clothes and look to flatter the individual and have a sense of style doing it. I fail miserably at this most days myself, but I love watching other people get it right.

            • Lanus

              Amen. the idea is to look like a cool expression of yourself. Love my TLo and Kittens/Fawns for this!

    • Tatiana Luján

      The fit of that jumpsit is awful, it’s not ment to be that tight. She looks as if she was wearing mom-shorts.

      • demidaemon

        My thoughts exactly.

    • jmorino08

      Ugh! Is that a romper? Women with curves, however fabulous said curves may be, should really stay away from that high waisted look, IMHO. Or maybe just she should. Because I’m getting a serious “suburban mom” vibe from her in this.

      • RebeccaKW

        High wasted AND pleated! I will say it’s not so bad from the back, but dear God the front of that thing.

      • Heather

        It IS a onesie. And it makes her look like she has belly roll, which she does not. So, it’s unflattering to her figure AND makes peeing difficult. Why on earth would she wear it?

    • Leah Elzinga

      how irritated do you think she is when they look SO out of sync? Like “Dammit Random Dancer Boyfriend! What is so difficult to understand about “East Hampton Draper Drag”?? Get yo’ shit together!”

    • majorbedhead

      Is that a romper? The shorts part look awful on her.

      • Jessica Freeman

        I was thinking the same thing. Looks like the zipper goes all the way up…

      • Meg0GayGuys6

        Yea, the bottom portion looks really small, and the top is quite snug too. Don’t worry, JLo, no one will think you’re fat if you go up a size.

    • Captain_Awkward

      I love your site, gentlemen. I loooove it. I use your Mad Style posts as a resource in teaching film classes! I think your criticism is generally brilliant.

      But critiquing what someone does with their face vs. critiquing what very rich, very attractive people who have a lot of choices do with their clothes are two different animals. This post is the equivalent of creepy old dudes on the subway who tell me I would be prettier if I just smiled. Maybe J. Lo is having a sad. I hear it happens to wealthy people, too. She pretty much can’t leave her house without every moment being documented, so the camera will see the bad days, and she doesn’t owe it to the world to be 100% happy & performing every minute of every day.

      Thank you for what you do, but please, maybe lay off people for expressing actual human emotions.

      • Denise Alden

        Wow. That was awkward.

        • Meg0GayGuys6

          Hahaha quite the apropos handle, no?

          • Denise Alden

            You got it.

        • lexilexi

          Wow from me too. Awkward, Captain.

      • Latin Buddy

        Um…are you knew to this blog? If so, here’s a tip. Uncles TLo are brilliant, witty, and SARCASTIC writers. If you don’t do well with reading sarcasm, you’re not going to like this blog. Love, Bitter Kitten

        • bellafigura1

          Sometimes the sarcasm bleeds into something else. I had the temerity to defend Anne Hathaway by suggesting she’d had a rough week (the Hathahaters were particularly vicious), and I came in for a beat down. They are brilliant and witty, for sure, but can get touchy — comes with the territory, I guess.

        • Captain_Awkward

          You would be so much better looking if you were smiling right now, don’t you think?

          Love the blog, love the wit, love the sarcasm, hate J-Lo’s outfit (she’d look better if she threw on something from Old Navy), hate the sexism. She’s not at any kind of red carpet event or performance. I mean, how dare she need to pee, or be thinking about something sad, or feel like her expensive frankenromper is riding up her no-nos when a photographer happens to be nearby? I know celebrities offer themselves up for our consumption in highly mockable ways, but I think the “Would it kill you to smile, ladies?” sentiment is a sexist one.

          Awesome people can overstep the line, yo, and saying “You’re great, but could you rethink that one thing?” isn’t meant as an insult. Isn’t that what T & Lo do for the awesome ladystars we love admiring so much?

          • conniemd

            I think TLo and the Bitter Kittens offer up the “Would it kill you to smile” to the gents whose pics they post as well. Don’t see it as sexist.

            • demidaemon

              I don’t think it can be sexist when they are critiquing a man and a woman for their attitudes. Also, they are celebrities. This is part of the business. Also, lighten up! This is supposed to be a fun blog.

      • Imasewsure

        Huh? I’m not sure JLo has expressed “actual human emotions” in public since before she was (allegedly) Jennie From the Block. We calls it as we sees it… they look cranky here, and it’s part of the fun of celeb-watching (and this blog) to catch these particular moments with fame-whores and sweetie pies alike and then bitch about them. It’s what we do here at TLo Central!!

        • Captain_Awkward

          Fair enough. Enjoy the day, everyone, sorry if I peed in your pool.

          • Imasewsure

            You can pee in the pool any day… That’s what chlorine is for, amirite?? We’re all Bitter Kittens together even when we disagree! :)

    • Judy_J

      That is a seriously unflattering outfit she’s wearing.

    • Jessica Freeman

      I wished the shorts were lower on her, its a nice casual outfit otherwise. Really love her sandals.

    • LuisaNL

      this is really unflattering. the sandals are to die for, though! he really does look generic. bleh.

    • SignLadyB

      Maybe because she ‘dressed’ for the occasion she expected him to also.

    • Shawn EH

      He’s rocking classic Federline. She’d be the fun person to talk to near the bar at the garden party.

      • jen

        Ha! Classic Federline.

      • zenobar

        “Classic Federline” – that is a lovely little oxymoron, right there.

        • Shawn EH

          I may have hurt myself typing it, I admit.

    • marlie

      Her outfit is horribly unflattering.

    • MannahattaMamma

      few women over the age of 19 can wear pleated shorts. it’s a (sad) fact of life. and women who have carried the proverbial buns in the proverbial ovens REALLY can’t wear pleated anything: skirt, pants, shorts. Sad but true. Maybe she looks sad b/c she’s realizing the truth about pleats as she walks. Or maybe she wishes her beau did not have a neck tattoo. Or maybe she just paid 29$ for a cuppa coffee, it being The Hamptons.

      • MilaXX

        She’s wearing $600 sandals, I don’t think she’d mind a $29 cup of joe.

    • Latin Buddy

      I dunno…but is he bulking up? Boy Toy kinda looks…hot?

      • demidaemon

        I think he looks dumb and douchey. Different strokes for different folks.

    • Diego!

      I have to say… those shorts are not the best thing for her (in the front), they do look great in the rear view, but her legs look chubby when she walks. JLo, burn them!

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      Notice that her thumb is on top. Clear indication of who is in control. The shorts need to be longer and from a diva such as herself, I’d expect a wedge sandal. Frankly, this has me doubting our earlier conversation and speculation that she could be The Queen. Back to the design board, I suppose.

    • conniemd

      My first thought was cool, weather appropriate summer wear of matching shorts and blouse, flat sandals. Dressed like an ordinary person for comfort and then saw that back zipper and threw my hands up in the air. That it’s a romper/jumpsuit, totally defeats the point of looking easy and like a regular person.

      • Fordzo

        It looks like it would hurt to sit down in that romper. (If you’re a woman, you’ll know what I mean.)

        • kimmeister

          Especially since she’s likely wearing a thong . . .

        • conniemd

          Yeah it would. Look at the difference between the crotch on the model and and JLo. The model has a lot more material to work with. That’s the problem with onesies. Women vary in length from shoulder to crotch. Doesn’t matter with a dress or two pieces.

      • kbshee

        At first I thought it would be an adorable outfit if she untucked the shirt. Then realized–oops–nothing to untuck.

      • vickiefantastico

        That’s EXACTLY what I thought! I was actually going to commend her for looking like a pretty, regular person, but the romper completely ruins the effect. And is probably very uncomfortable.

    • Fordzo

      Here is what I want to know: (I know, you’re all collectively holding your breath)

      JLo does not have skinny, model thighs that don’t touch at the top. I, myself, do not have skinny, model thighs that don’t touch at the top (le sigh). When I wear shorts, they always ride up on the inseam, and I have to either walk like a cowboy in a western movie or keep picking my shorts out of my…well, you know.

      So, how is she walking in these shorts without them riding up the inside of her thighs? Someone help me. Is there a trick to walking in shorts that I am unaware of? I haven’t worn shorts in about 9 years (which was when my thighs met and fell in love and swore never to part) because I hate how it looks.

      • OrigamiRose

        I can’t answer about the shorts – never wear them for the same reason you cite). But is it weird I kind of love the fact that JLo has regular woman thighs?

      • http://www.katymcdermott.com KatyMightHave

        I hope you don’t mind if I totally steal your line about “when my thighs met and fell in love and swore never to part”? Because that shit is HILARIOUS!!!

      • Shawn EH

        It looks like these shorts are relatively tight around her thighs; the lady version of boxer briefs? Elastic hems?

      • Meg0GayGuys6

        I have a feeling if the photog caught them walking in about 5 more steps, they would have gotten a great shot of her pulling those shorts outta her… well, you know. :)

        And, my thighs touch too but only some of my shorts ride up like that. I think it must have to do with the way they’re individually cut. I assume shorts that have more room in the thigh would be good, but if they’re tight in the hips, maybe that causes them to ride up too? Sorry, not much help here.

      • random_poster

        Maybe JLo’s shorts are too afraid of what she’ll do to them if they moved, and obediently stay put thusly.

        I have the same problem as you. The only shorts that ever worked for me had to heavy/stiffer denim and much longer. I could never wear them that short or in that fabric.

      • sweetestsith

        In my experience, if you can find ones that flair out just a little bit at the bottom they ride up less while walking (good luck standing up gracefully though! I always have to readjust everything). You also have to find that awkward/perfect length too, something below the fullest part of the thigh but not *too* far below it. I’ve had decent luck with Old Navy’s 5″ inseam shorts (I think that’s the right name), a random pair from walmart (faded glory?), and the occasional part from marshals/tjmax, etc.

      • kimmeister

        I think it’s a trifecta of reasons: 1) they’re so short they wouldn’t have much distance to ride up, 2) they’re tight so they can’t move, and 3) depends on the fabric. Plus, she could have used clothing tape for all we know.

        My thighs, too, are BFFs and have their own heat source and time zone. It’s getting to the point where I almost can’t bear to wear skirts without hosiery or something to separate them. The only shorts I wear these days in public are bermuda length.

        • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

          I have just snorted my water at the phrase “own heat source and time zone” related to thighs in shorts. Love you for that today. xo

      • demidaemon

        I’m going to go out on a limb here and say liberal applications of Crisco. Or baby oil, maybe.

    • MilaXX

      I give her credit for dressing appropriate for the venue, but I think this looks like mom jeans on her and makes her boy toy look even more like a boy toy. She should have paired this with a cute pair of wedges instead.

    • Glam Dixie

      She shouldn’t have tucked the shirt into the shorts. I think that would have hidden how thick those shorts are making her look through the middle. As my daughters would say, he looks like a guido.

      • MilaXX

        No choice, it’s a romper. You can see the zipper in the back

        • Glam Dixie

          Ew….that’s so much worse.

    • stephkat

      Put the zipper in the front, make it blue and add short sleeves and this is my (required) high school PE outfit from the ’70’s.

    • Zorkness

      Maybe I am the only one, but I think he is kinda hot in this pic. Sexy tattoos. Not too much. I just had no idea who this guy was so I looked him and up, and I still have no idea who he is. He looks a lot better here than he did in those pics.

    • Sobaika

      There’s a lot of talk about how unflattering the outfit is, but as someone who is similarly shaped (though nowhere near as toned) to Jenny from the Block… who gives a shit? It’s clear in the pictures that the pooch-appearance comes from the pleats and not her actual body. She looks fine. Comfy and very Hamptons.

    • http://twitter.com/irmaladuce_l8ly IrmaLaDuce

      Hand holding aside, she looks like she’s out with her delinquent son. It’s probably the ill-fitting, pleated mom-shorts.

    • Adrianna Grężak

      We just had a heatwave, I’m sure I’d look equally grumpy. …and then I’d remember I was a millionaire in the Hamptons.

    • rage_on_the_page

      DAT ASS. I never expect it.

    • IMNAngryLiberal

      The length of these shorts is wrong, wrong, wrong. JLo looks like a middle-aged woman with thunder thighs in this outfit and I’m pretty sure that isn’t the look she was going for when she got dressed that morning. Maybe she caught sight of herself in a storefront window whilst walking and that accounts for her grave demeanor.

    • JP

      All I can think is how hard it must be to pee in that onesie.

    • Tuneful54

      Mom shorts; the pleats do her no favors; and the length is not flattering to those who are well endowed en los thighs. I do like their color. I sat up and noticed him, though, for the first time.

    • flamingoNW

      I woulda gone with a breezy summer dress…

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      I’m not sure how I feel about the “shorts-and-bottom” onesie. It seems like it defeats the purpose of a onesie. Cute shoes though – the only way I wear thong sandals is if they have a back, because I hate flappy shoes or the possibility of losing a shoe in a gutter.
      But I still wish the outfit was separate pieces. I’d rock the hell out of the red shorts, but I don’t really get the tweedy looking top.

    • Judy_S

      Girl, that’s not your romper.

    • Sara__B

      Pleated shorts/romper. Enough said.

    • joanna dash

      They both look so pedestrian.

      (see what I did there?)

    • Pudgy Possum

      OMG, she looks so much better toned down. I know she’s a diva and all, that she is compelled by forces from within and without to do diva-like things, but a stargazer can’t really concentrate on her beauty when she’s all blinged out and looking Jersey Shore.

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      this may be the worst she has ever looked. not only the obvious (this is a time to ask “does this make me look fat?”), but she looks so washed out and miserable, with her hair looking like she just stuck it up after getting out of bed. i hardly recognized her. they must be fighting.

    • kimmeister

      Size comments aside, I do marvel at her complete lack of cellulite on her thighs!

    • Susan Bigler

      That is NOT attractive at all. Fail.

    • GorgeousThings

      Sorry, all I can see is the pulling at the waistband and high hip. She needs to go up a size in those shorts. As my mother would have said, “sausage casing”.

    • appliquer

      Not a good look for her.

    • bertkeeter

      Not flattering at all……. belongs on a boardwalk in Atlantic City!

    • Joanne Abrams

      these photos were not worth the posting

    • ewes_urn_aim

      She looks like his mom.

    • throwaneyeonthis

      Without the couture clothes, five inch heels, and tons of airbrushing, all you can really say is she looks really good for her age. Nothing special. Bet there are lots of Jennys from the Bronx who look this good or better.

    • frannyprof

      Okay, this again proves my theory that the very existence of Naya Rivera is ruining JLo’s life. Is it a coincidence that TLo posted that fab Naya in pretty in pink pic right next to the JLo in stumpy orange pic? The look on JLo’s face says it all.

    • SportifLateBoomer

      She would do better by wearing some of her signature line for Kohls, from which I actually bought a pair of shorts and sleeveless top. At first I was ashamed as I have mixed feelings about her; then I tried the stuff on and felt she understood me, by creating a pair of short shorts that worked for my body type, which is similar to hers — not tall and bootilicious. They’re not half bad.

      We also share a thing for young Latino arm candy, so I guess we’re practically sisters.

      Oh. Wait…

      • myristica_fragrans

        *deceased*

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      Pleated shorts, ugh.

      • Lori

        Seriously. Why do those exist. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone who looks better in pleated shorts than in flat fronts. I’ve know plenty of people who think they do, but none who were correct about that.

    • shawna

      DAMN he is so hot.

    • nannypoo

      Without the jacket that is not much of an outfit.

    • stubbornthoughts

      Those pleats are doing her no favors. And neither is the back-up dancer, who I assume is actually named BackUp Dancer. And she calls him BU for short, cuz he’s her “boo” – or whatever they say in those R&B songs.

    • SpillinTea

      His legs are smoother than hers…

    • alyce1213

      I don’t care if her outfit is high end, it’s ugly and unflattering.

    • Anniebet

      JLo looking like a 40 year old matron with her bit of toast on the side?

    • Sunraya

      I hate tucking shirts into clothes unless they are Oxford shirts. I’m from the shirt outside the waistband generation.

    • formerlyAnon

      Hmmm. Is it better when your much younger partner makes you look much older than you do when they aren’t in the picture (Bruce Willis, yesterday), of when your much younger partner makes you look like acquaintances I run into in the grocery store accompanied by the son they had in their teens who’s visiting with his wife and their new baby?

    • quiltrx

      Those 80s mom shorts (no offense, I wore them…BACK THEN) are NOT for the JLo.

    • Fanny Wolston

      I think it’s cute from the back, what a relief to know it’s a one piece and not gingham separates. And always wearing the bun on top o the head. If I was with a banging boytoy on the beach my hair would be tousled, salty and messily blowing in the wind.

    • librarygrrl64

      Jesus, she looks tightly wound even in casual wear.

    • guest2visits

      Hate the shorts. I bet she could find something, anything better in that shop behind her. My mother bought me this set when I was 10ish, back in the 60s. I hated it then too. Wait a minute – is that a zipper? Is this a onesy? Oh I hate this even more.

    • lrhoff

      Ah, this is the reason why I don’t like her. Talk about uppity…..get over yourself.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      At first I thought she was wearing mom shorts, and then I realized it was a one piece. My next thought was, “what a pain to deal with that every time she has to pee!” And thus, the glamour drains out of the whole outfit for me.
