      Sparkly Barbie!

      It would be awesome if all the halogen lights in the world could be aimed at the sparkly. I’m not sure this lighting is doing it all the favours it deserves.. :)

      • Trent

        Did the dress AND the shoes AND the clutch AND the jewelry all have to match? Even Barbie breaks up the colors now and then…

    • Noah

      Your dress is unraveling, sweetie. Not cute.

      • sienna elm

        Her dress looks like she walked through brambles to get to work.

        • Lucía Gavello

          Maybe that’s why she looks so pissed.

      • jen_vasm

        I like to think she whooped some wannabe diva’s butt right before she stepped on the red carpet and sustained some dress frayage.

    • Kent Roby

      Sparkle Derelicte.

      • rockin robin


      • Jacob Bowen

        She can Derelicte her own balls, thank you.

    • International Model

      …am I the only one who suspects that J.Lo (not-so) secretly wants to be made out of gold and diamonds?

      • @Biting Panda


        • International Model

          (not-so) secretly. I do want to see that press release – “Hola, mi amores! We’ve put a man on the moon and now, let’s do something truly inspiring – make J.Lo GLO for real!”

      • MishaFoomin

        She saw Goldfinger and wished the gold-leafing process on humans was not lethal.

    • mickiemonkey

      Did she get attacked by a gaggle of cats? She looks like a sparkly scratching post.

      • zenobar

        For some reason, the mental image I have of a “gaggle of cats” involves a bunch of cats sauntering around on two legs.

        So, thank you for that :)

      • smayper


      • 3boysful

        I was gonna suggest all you cat-loving BKs run out and buy this so no one will be able to tell your cat got to your evening wear.

    • Denise Alden

      Oh, Jennifer, we get it: you’re still hot. I’m usually your fan/apologist, but even I’m getting tired of your schtick.

    • shopgirl716

      Wow. She’s really sparkly. Apparently I’m in a small minority who thinks her style veers towards tacky most of the time.

      • Joanna

        I am completely with you. Everything is always too short, too tight, too shiny, like she gets her outfits from Forever 21.

        • kimmeister

          Amazingly enough, this dress isn’t skin tight! But that would be hard to do, given the material.

          • MishaFoomin

            It was skin tight. Not anymore. *wink*

      • boweryboy

        I’m right there with you girlfriend.

      • Peri7473

        Really? I thought that it was the majority who thought that her style was tacky most of the time, they just accept it as _her_ style. Apparently, the minority is those of us who think that tacky isn’t a good thing!!!

        • alyce1213

          I wrote pretty much the same thing, at the same time

        • shopgirl716

          Okay, that is really funny. And no, I don’t think tacky is a good thing. It’s just too much jewelry, plunging necklines, short skirts and belly baring tops. It’s the part of the merger between fashion and celebrity I don’t like. Simple and chic as a good thing has been replaced by looks like the ones Jennifer Lopez favors.

        • AnaRoW

          Her style does veer into tacky occasionally but that generally comes with the professional singer and dancer territory where the goal is to stand out rather than to win best dressed. I can’t think of one singer off the top of my head that doesn’t do tacky. You have to take that into consideration.

          ETA, I actually think she looks great here.

      • alyce1213

        Is it a minority? I think most of the people think her style is tacky most of the time. It’s a given, and kind of accepted because of her diva-tude.

        • NurseEllen

          This people certainly falls into that (she’s tacky all the time) category.

      • KateShouldBeWorking

        Not at all. My first thought was “Bless that tacky broad”.

      • conniemd

        Her style is tacky. But it’s the diva who she is. And even if it is tacky, there’s kinda this little sparkly girl who loved Barbies and princesses in me. Though she may be tacky, and wear short and shiny and tight, she usually avoids the Kluminator’s obsession with showing lots of boobage.

    • Anna

      This looks like she picked it up from the “FINAL SALE: AS IS” section.

      • Lori

        And then ripped about 2″ off the hem.

    • @Biting Panda

      I loathe seeing millionaires in tattered and torn clothing. Get over your shit.

      • zenobar

        But it’s not tattered. It’s edgy, darling! Edgy and real.

      • smayper

        Yup. The couture unravelling clothes and the high fashion torn jeans make my teeth ache. Expensive clothes — sure. Enjoy. But there’s something so icky about designers appropriating what happens to clothing if you don’t have money that feels so wrong. It’s the opposite of real.

    • Lori

      Of course.

    • zenobar

      Samety samety samey same.

    • boweryboy

      Once again I have a headache from all the eyerolls she elicits from me. And you know, if I’m paying a bajillion dollars for a bejeweled slip of a dress I don’t want it to look like it’s falling apart. And matchy shoes to boot. Really?

      • zenobar

        You know what, she now elicits from me what I like to refer to as a “full-body eyeroll”.

        • boweryboy

          Ooo… that sounds painful.

      • kimmeister

        Matchy shoes, matchy clutch, matchy jewelry, matchy eye shadow!

        • TheDivineMissAnn

          Indeed. And sparkly nailpolish!

        • boweryboy

          Matchy manicure too!

    • Jaeda Laurez

      Classic J-Lo. I love it, but you know, I let her get away with a lot lol.

    • Nancy Marion

      Jennifer Lopez stars in The Matrix LIVE! in VEGAS!

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Imagine JLo holograms being projected ad infinitum!

    • empath

      looks like her cat (with glam dreams) had some feline fun in her closet.

    • FibonacciSequins

      Pretentious distressing

    • hughman

      I like when The Claw reaches up to faintly touch her hair and her expression is “Oh, this is sooo painful.”

      • FibonacciSequins

        Speaking of her hair, it looks like a mop.

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        Her hair is seriously dried out.

      • MishaFoomin

        She really needs to be cast in a villain role in an action movie. Just look at that picture! It’s the movie poster if you just add the hero and his damsel in distress in the corner looking frightened.

    • Dana F.

      The dress, whatever, it’s just who she is. I don’t love it but it works on her. But she needs to fire her makeup artist STAT.

      • kimmeister

        This is probably the best her makeup looked all season. It has been ROUGH.

        • demidaemon

          That’s sad, considering she’s on TV and is the central judge.

    • Janet B

      It’s all just too much.

    • alyce1213

      Apart from the tacky dress — She has perfectly nice, full lips. I don’t know why she likes to look like she just ate a big, fatty corned beef sandwich.

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        HAHAHA!!! “Big Fatty Corned Beef Lips.”

      • Glam Dixie

        That glossy crap smeared all over her entire mouth area actually grosses me out a little bit. I try not to look at her mouth whenever possible.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      OF COURSE.

    • Emily Giovanni

      Of course.

    • BlairBear

      Hola lovers ! Also this whole distressed sequin dress takes it to new levels of hookerdom

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      Is it Fleet Week in LA? Cause she looks ready.

    • Danielle


    • Jessica Freeman

      Bling is her favorite color.

    • MilaXX

      This dress reads more Miley or Rhianna than JLo. The silver glittery-ness of it all is pure JLo, but the artfully ripped bits don’t feel like something she would wear. Pairing it with loads of bling and matchy shoes pretty much kills the look for me.

      • Joanna

        This would be downright demure for Miley.

        • MilaXX

          Yep and Rhi Rhi woul wear it without a bra

          • demidaemon

            And probably the middle section of the dress.

      • decormaven

        Yes! I think she piled on the bling to let us all know it’s artfully ripped couture, not something out of the rag barrel.

      • holla

        you know, I love the idea of this on RhiRhi and want to see what she would do with it. She would make this edgy in instead of looking trashy,

    • Fräulein K.

      I like to think that she has a long-standing professional relationship with a very, very good make-up artist, who gets even by making her look less than her best when she’s been too much of a pain in the ass lately.

    • crash1212

      I actually really like this. Seems pure JLo to me. S’pose they just took a pair of scissors to it to make it shorter?

      • MilaXX

        I think it’s shorter on JLo because she’s wearing it a size smaller and she has curves.

    • Bert Keeter

      Miss Haversham’s disco dress?

    • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      It looks cheap on the runway, it looks cheaper on the red carpet.

      • IMNAngryLiberal

        I believe it looks cheaper on the red carpet because it is reflecting the person wearing it — don’t know if you watched the AI finale last night, but her outfits ranged from tacky to vulgar and back again….and I have to think JLo makes most of her own wardrobe decisions for the show.

        • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

          YES! She sometimes lands in FIERCE with her style choices, but this whole look is a full display of bad instincts and taste issues, from the decision of having it shortened (which is a very JLo thing to do) to the sh**ty styling (the metallic shoes and rings?, seriously?).

    • appliquer

      I thought she was carrying a cheese grater in the first photo!

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        That would explain the rips in the dress.

    • Dany

      I just got to love this for all of it’s tacky/diva/drag realness. JLo definitely knows her brand, and when you add the HILARIOUS “Don’t fuck with me, papi” facial expressions….Just love.

    • majorbedhead

      For some reason, I have “Like a Rhinestone Cowboy” now stuck in my head. Cannot imagine why.

      • madge

        there’s been a load of compromisin / on the road to j-lo’s horizon

    • Miss Ruth

      Oh, for the LOVE OF GOD. You are over forty years old. Yeah, sure, knock yourself out with the short and sparkly — your legs are amazing. But maybe dial down the Blue Steel Bitchface a little?

    • LeelaST

      She needs more rhinestones.

    • Sam Smith

      That is a lot of sparkle/sparkle, but I think the dress looks better on her than the model. On the model, the dress seems much less shapely and seems to be thickening the waist.

    • NurseEllen

      Because a girl can never wear too many sequins, and because an artfully shredded yet still ridiculously expensive minidress is always in style.

    • ceceliadid

      Oops … double posting … apologies.

    • MannahattaMamma

      CLASSY! She really IS Jenny from the block.

    • Cheryl

      I like the rippy, sparkly dress (especially the rips), but on JLo it’s too tight, too short, and way, way too over accessorized. Sparkly shoes, bag, and rings with all that going on? Yuck! If you have one tacky element (sparkly/shiny) then stay away from the other two, so you don’t have the Trifecta of Tack.

    • Tee

      She’s workin’ her “do I look like I care my dress is too short” face with all the see-thru rhinestone realness she can muster. Now go fire somebody for making eye contact!

    • ceceliadid

      A perfect J Lo expression cycle …
      1. Bitchface
      2. Oh look, photographers!
      3. Hola Lovers (TM) with See my Bling
      4. But now I must go ….

    • Bethany Roullett

      The dress is perfectly her, but she must have been getting her hair caught in it ALL NIGHT. Unless they were some sort of miracle not-snagging crystals. ugh.

    • Terri Terri

      I just can’t take someone seriously when they’re trying THAT hard to look like a badass.

    • nannypoo

      Her attempts at bitchface are laughable.

    • Wink

      Getting a Tina Turner in Mad Max vibe from this. She just needs a few more rips and a ‘futuristic’ mohawk to complete the look.

      • Tricia Rose

        oh please JLo! Mohawk Please!

    • Pennymac

      She has become a cartoon character

    • Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie


    • Jacqueline Wessel

      A shredded bejeweled dress. Whodathunkit?

      • P M

        I thought ‘that dress has a lot of holes in it’ when I saw it.

    • ashtangajunkie

      “Hola, lovers. I am…Sparkly…Shredded..and very Serious about American Idol. The three most important ‘S’ words. Write it down.”

    • schadenfreudelicious

      Her permanent sexytimes face makes me laugh out loud….give it a rest Jenny

    • aahlife

      I do not like how her lipstick is painted outside her actual lips – looks smeary and cheap.

    • Kati B

      Swear to god, I can’t even look at pictures w/o hearing “HOLA LOVERS”

    • Qitkat

      “My poo smells better than your poo, AND IT SPARKLES!”

    • Clydette Wantland

      Did she fall into glitter and sparkles? OVERKILL.

    • Imasewsure

      I love this crazy B… never too much sparkle in Diva-land!

    • Garcia Loca

      Is there a rule about matching dress, shoes, bag, and jewelry? Overkill!

      • Vtg Fashion Library

        Overkill is JLo’s middle name.

    • WendyD

      And once again, the uncles give me JLo when I just want to talk about how fabulous my Harry Connick, Jr. looked in his velvet tux jacket with a rhinestone fleur de lis pin on the lapel.

    • BackseatDriver

      If they were going to go through the trouble to shorten the skirt, why not make the sleeves the right length at the same time? The look a little over an inch too long on her.

    • Man Dala

      This dress looks like it’s been selected from Mugatu’s ‘Derelict’ collection in Zoolander. No.

    • ktr33

      Just Classic J-Lo. I feel nothing.

    • Jen Freeman

      Honestly, she wore the strapless version in 1998 in her debut music video. Classic J.Lo but isn’t it getting a tad much?

    • FridaStaire

      In Dolly’s immortal words, it costs a lot of money to look this cheap!

    • SuzyQuzey

      Looks like she was attacked by a cat.

    • dash1211

      Nothing to see here. Move on.

    • Gatto Nero

      But of course.

    • kategs

      I love that dress but I’d love it more if it were two inches longer.

    • Glam Dixie

      Oh Ben! You almost made me forget about….tacos. Whenever I see her try hard pouty-sexy face, I just imagine Cartman’s singing JLo hand and I feel better. Taco flavored kisses! Tacotaco.

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      It looks like she’s been wearing this dress since the “If You Had My Love” video in 1999.

    • RescueMe23

      And people say things about Madonna?? Please..this one is no better. As far as the dress…of course!

    • KTBSN

      Flare nostrils , squint eyes, part lips slightly, smoulder at camera. See how I smoulder? K… once more.


      I love that dress.

    • musi_

      I wish the dress was a tiny bit longer! But then it wouldn’t be a JLo dress.

    • Ass Kicking Adviser

      Of course.

    • DesertDweller79

      Ugh. The dress is intentionally designed to look like it is old, patchy and unravelling. That is just inexcusable. As if those “artfully” torn jeans weren’t bad enough. If I’m rich, I’m not going to wear a dress that looks as though it’s falling apart.

      • KayEmWhy

        It’s called “slumming” 😉

    • your face

      Lots of haters here, but I think this looks great.

      • VicD

        Exactly. This is classic JLo, and she does it beautifully.

    • demidaemon

      JLo sure pulled out the big guns for this event! He says, with as much sarcasm as possible.

    • Cecilia

      I love how it’s shorter on JLo, we would struggle to recognise her otherwise.

    • St. Ace

      Is this not the ultimate J.Lo dress?

    • Kate

      of course….

    • Contralto

      puh-RIMO bitchface.

    • wisdomy

      She’s the sparkliest in all the land. No one is sparklier. NO ONE!!!

    • MarissaLG

      Did she get that wig from the Kim Zolciak collection?

    • bluefish

      Pay close attention to my rings. Look, see, here they are!

    • Mona_Visa

      What the hell is wrong with her forehead??? Is that, like, makeup contouring gone wrong, or what? Someone help me out here.

    • Clash D

      A dress that looks like it came from the bottom of a second-hand shop bargain bin. It looks So. Worn. OUT.

    • gefeylich

      She looks great in this dress, even with the shortened hem (which would be objectionable on anyone else). But you guys are so right about the “obvious hair extensions thrown over the shoulder” look – it WILL date all these pictures as “21st century teens” as much has a layered, banged ‘do screams “1980s.” La Lopez is one of the worst offenders, too.

    • livesarah

      I was busy hating on the dress until I got to the picture with the godawful lip liner. Holy hell is that bad makeup.

    • Vera

      Classic JLo, and the dress looks better on her than the model where it manages to be ill fitting and frumpy.

    • BForte

      Never change, JLo.

    • Mary Lauer

      All I can hear is Nina: “Short tight and shiny is the quickest way to look cheap.”
