Jennifer Lopez in Gucci at the Met Gala: fabulous or phony?

Jennifer Lopez has been all over the place lately. I saw her yesterday on Kathie Lee and Hoda’s portion of the Today Show (video here) and she was doing her “aw shucks, people just need to get to know me” act. (I’m paraphrasing.) She comes across well and she’s doing a good job on Idol, but all you need to know about Jennifer Lopez is evident in her career. She just put out a new video in which she’s writhing around on the sand with some buff guy like it’s 1999 and she’s promoting her new album, Love, out today. She’s not going to stop, and she’ll be in our faces for as long as she gets paid for her mediocre music or for promoting some product.

Last night at the Met Gala LA Lopez wore a fuchsia Gucci gown with puffy cutout sleeves adorned with feathers or flowers (it’s hard to figure out exactly what that bunchy fabric covering the top of her arms is supposed to be). Her dress featured cutout panels flanking her stomach (because this woman has to show her stomach somehow) and a long draped bow hanging from the throat. She accessorized with giant diamond stud earrings, two large rings, one on each hand, and a clutch that was more purple than fuchsia. I guess the color of the clutch matched some of the flower fabric pieces on her arms.

J.Lo had her hair back in a severe bun and wore bright red shiny lipstick. It was all too much together, and while I don’t hate the dress I dislike the overall look. It’s borderline ridiculous, but so is Lopez in so many ways. She is in no way subtle and I doubt she has an off switch.

Check out the side view. It’s even worse.

    Ugh! The hair is just too harsh for her. Something soft and natural would have been more flattering, age wise. The dress, fug. People’s Most Beautiful is not living up to the title in this getup.

  2. LeManda says:

    Funny. She looks perfectly put together yet people still have a problem with that?

  3. You don't say says:

    The way it is tied makes it look like a noose and she is being strangled. Pretty color though, but she looks a bit severe with the hair and lipstick. She needs to soften it up a bit.

  4. lucy2 says:

    I hate when she does the too tight, plastered down hair, it never looks good on her.
    I think her gown is sort of interesting though – certainly an attention getter.

  5. Marjalane says:

    Do you reckon she stands in front of the mirror with Marc Anthony and the rest of her slaves asking, “I look hot, right?, No way I look over 40, right?, This lipstick is fierce, right?”

    Without seeing all the rest of the dresses, I vote this to be the ugliest. The waistline on it is bizarre, and the crepe paper flowers are tragic.

  6. baby says:

    hate the hair, but idk i think the dress suits her (take that with a grain of salt)

  7. tracking says:

    Other than the dumb fake flowers emerging from her shoulders, the dress is a knockout. Color, fit, and just-right amount of sex appeal are perfection.

  8. brin says:

    I think the dress would have looked great without the flower puffy shrug on her shoulders.

  9. OtherChris says:

    I don’t like the dress, but the color suits her and her makeup and hair look nice. She’s always been pretty, but there’s just something about her that’s a massive turn-off. And I think that “something” is that she appears to be a self-centered egomaniac.

    I’m going to start calling her husband “Pocket Skelator” now.

  10. mln76 says:

    She looks amazing and she’s dressed perfectly for the Met Gala over-the-top, bold, and the good old JLO arrogant face thrown in.

  11. embertine says:

    I actually love the dress. It is ridonk and makes her look a bit hunched up in some pics, but overall it’s great. Gorgeous, gorgeous colour on her. Agree totally about the scraped back hair though. A nice soft updo would have been much better.

  12. Ashley says:

    I hate it when she does that with her hair, it makes it look greasy and thin. She looks uncomfortable in the dress, like it is strangling her.

  13. silken_floss says:

    I love the color and the floral adornment!

  14. Abby says:

    I like her makeup and her hair –she does that all the time. I dont like the flowers on her shoulders. I wish she would show me how to do lipstick like that!

  15. Brassy says:

    I can’t stand J Lo’s “high fashion face”. She looks stoned.

    And her get-up? Wrong! But anything to distract me from her life partner’s face. Lo-ward have mercy.

  16. junipergreen says:

    Her dumb posing face is so ridiculous looking. The partial closed lids (aiming for bedroom eyes, obvs), the lips in an O and stuck out. So stupid.

  17. Lindy says:

    “I doubt she has an off switch”–yep, that pretty much sums it up, huh?

    When is she going to learn that slicked-back tight bun + trampy shiny red lip = budget transvestite?

    Not saying some women can’t pull it off–there are a few. She is not in that category.

  18. Delta Juliet says:

    I can’t put my finger on it, but I really like this dress! It is over the top, and interesting to look at, but still flatters her figure. The hair I could definitely do without. Awful.

  19. Sha says:

    She looks Stunning! WERK! It’s a Costume Gala.

  20. Sassy says:

    Hair and makeup are too harsh. The dress color is pretty but the cut/style is fug. And why does she insist on showing us her stomach? WE GET IT. You’ve managed to keep your stomach nice even after having twins. Now cover it up.

  21. Emily says:

    I kinda like the dress. The colours work well together. Hate the hair and makeup-the bun’s way too severe, the red lippie’s too much and the eyebrow pencil looks a little grey.

  22. workerbee says:

    Quit with the “sexy face”! It’s so sexy I want to barf.

  23. your mama says:

    The dress would be prettier if the flowers were off her shoulders and perhaps around the bottom hem… just my opinion (can’t argue taste).

  24. your mama says:

    @ workerbee – sexy face, lmao!! It is beyond ridic at this point, huh? :)

  25. the original bellaluna says:

    I vote for frightening. She looks like some random evil step-mom from a fairy tale.

    If that’s the look she’s going for, brava, I guess.

  26. marge says:

    what a waste of beautiful fucscia silk…

  27. guesty says:

    Phony. All you see is the dress. It’s wearing her.

  28. dorothy says:

    She looks like a fruit salad. And her poor husband….he must have to buy his suits in the boys section.

  29. tapioca says:

    Hate her, love the outfit! I thought she was dropped by her record label a couple of years ago, though?

  30. beth says:

    haha, this is so jennifer lopez. i think if she has her way, she’ll totally run away with the tropical rainforest theme meet Jurassic Park era theme, every time.

  31. Lala11_7 says:

    Take off the shrug….

    Take down the bun (keep thinking of “King of Queens” when Carrie kept wearing her hair in a bun)…do soft loose waves to one side…


    Though, I see what she’s doing here…SIGH!!!

  32. Roxy75 says:

    Wow, it’s like she thinks she is WAY more important than normal earthlings….she looks like a fool…as if she thinks she is a barbie and is trying on all the ridiculous barbie clothing…

  33. Sue says:

    The dress and the flowers work but to pull it together she should have went with a natural look for her makeup and hand bag.

  34. Rachel() says:

    Phony, phony, phony! Pretty dress, ugly accessories and makeup. There’s a reason why redheads aren’t supposed to wear pink. It’s b/c red and pink clash. A lot! I bet J-Lo thought she was the most fabulous person there, though.

  35. Az says:

    Look, say what you want about this one but when it’s necessary to get done up to the max, she always brings it.

  36. Eileen says:

    She has that same face she always has of “I’m taking a crap” and it looks like there’s a giant caterpillar wrapped around her.

  37. Faye says:

    Don’t like the flower…thing. The color is beautiful and perfect for her though.

  38. Mairead says:

    Does the Botanic Gardens know that this woman is wearing a chunk of their shrubbery?

  39. someone says:

    theres way too much going on with that dress, don’t like it..hate her hair!!!

  40. TeeTee says:

    she tries too damn hard and it shows–everything is severe..

    she’s annoying and she cannot sing, reminds me of a wet goat.

    more folks are laughing at her, than with her..TRUST!

    take the money and go away, Jenny from the Block

  41. KCT says:

    I don’t get why she pulls her hair back so severely. The dress is just meh. I’d stick with a simpler look at her age.

  42. Deven says:

    Don’t think I care for her dress but her face and makeup are sensational. I wonder if she does the makeup herself or has a professional do it?

  43. Hanh says:

    Crydon facelift with the hair. Hate the flower whatever the hell shrug. Otherwise I love the dress.

  44. serena says:

    The dress is not horrible, the make up is.
    She really doesn’t know how to mess more with her eyebrows and please, hire a GOOD make up artist and put on some eyeliner.

  45. Ari says:

    Reminds me of when she was in “the cell” love this look

  46. j says:

    She looks like she’s growing flowers ala Black Swan. The dress is nice but the chia pet has to go.

  47. Tia C says:

    LOL! When is Jennifer Lopez NOT phony?

  48. Janna says:

    The actual dress is fine enough, but those sleeves, it’s like a joke. And I see she has that tranny facial pose going again. ugh.

  49. Maritza says:

    I hate when Jlo does the come hither look, its not flattering at all. On the 4th photo it looks like Marc is touching Jessica Alba’s baby bump.

  50. Kiki says:

    tacky as hell. she is NOT attractive.

  51. Stubbylove says:

    Ladies – don’t hate – I adore the color – esp. on JLo.

  52. bagladey says:

    I would wear this; WITH the flower shrug. Gorgeous colour.

  53. ladybert62 says:

    Plastered hair-head and no neck do not make a pretty picture. Her head looks like it is floating above that silly dress – I think someone was on drugs when they designed this combo! Horrible.

  54. feebee says:

    And I thought Beyonce wanted to get noticed…..

  55. Shoe_Lover says:

    is she unaware that she is so 5 years ago? The teens always seem to know what the hottest thing is and my cousin is all “JLO who?” she’s all about Gaga and Katy Perry. Even Britney Spears is still in with the teens but JLO is over. The sadddest part is she seems unable to accept that just because she’s on American Idol doesnt mean she is relevant

  56. Camille says:

    Ridiculous. Hate everything here!

  57. Bill Hicks is God says:

    There’s not a damned thing wrong with the way she looks. If it was 2000. And it wasn’t the Met Gala but ‘The Cell.’

  58. SoCal says:

    She looks STUNNING!!!! My BEST dressed, but I could have done with a different up-do and I think her grey hairs are showing 0_o…other than that, perfection!

  59. Jane says:

    Wish I had her face shape and hairline. It makes it easy to wear hair back and many styles nicely.

  60. AngelMay says:

    RuPaul’s Drag Race. And she’s not winning.

  61. Newbie says:

    I like the colors. That’s it, though.

  62. Crash2GO2 says:

    I agree, her outfit is wearing her, as is her lipstick. And I’m so weary of her ‘sexy face’. And I like JLo! She would look so pretty if she went more simple and natural with her hair loose. And had an engaged look on her face while being photographed.
