  • 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.

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

    • @Biting Panda


      • (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!”

    • 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

  • 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.

    • 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.

  • 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


  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • *Yawn*

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!


    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • Never change, JLo.

  • Mary Lauer

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