Jennifer Lopez in white Zuhair Murad at the GGs: ridiculous, try-hard or great?

Just know: I was going to include more people into this post, but then I saw that Jennifer Lopez did a costume change in between the actual Golden Globes ceremony and the after-parties, and that made me stop and say: “Okay, let’s give her what she wants – the spotlight!” So here you go, a post devoted solely to Jennifer Lopez and her poor boy-toy, Casper Smart.

Casper is officially making it through his second awards season! Remember, he was J.Lo’s Oscar date last year, and God knows, she’ll probably be invited to present this year and Casper were be on the Oscar red carpet, rubbing elbows with Jessica Chastain and George Clooney. You’d think that he would have realized the situation by now: he better propose to her fast!! I can’t believe it hasn’t happened yet.

But what’s worse than seeing Casper on the red carpet of the Golden Globes is seeing Jennifer Lopez’s try-hard. Sure, she had a few good moments – like her little bit with Tina Fey, which was super-cute. But mostly it felt like… “Ugh, Jennifer Lopez is trying to get attention.” Maybe it was about Ben Affleck, her ex- lover? I honestly forgot about the Bennifer 1.0 Drama because there should have been more cutaways to J.Lo whenever Ben was mentioned. Then again, I don’t think Jennifer harbors any ill-will towards Ben –he’s the one ashamed of HER, not vice-versa.

Anyway, about the fashion… Jennifer’s wife gown is Zuhair Murad, a label which is increasingly taking cues from Marchesa in The Fug Department. I absolutely hated this gown. I did like the black gown she wore at the after-party, although she looks sort of like a zombie – super-tired, right?

    I hated that white dress with a passion and thought it WAS Marchesa. No. No. No. She is beautiful and if she’d just stop dressing so tacky and try hard, it would be lovely

  2. Amelia says:

    My gaydar starts to ping a bit whenever I see Casper.
    The eyebrows, the lips the teeth . . . maybe he’s a very high maintenence metrosexual…?

  3. Post-Its says:

    Damn, her face is a mess in that black dress. That make-up looks like she spent the night drunk in a club and attempted to fix things during a cab ride.

    And why does it piss me off that Casper is wearing that stupid white jacket with no tie? Like he wants to stand out amoung people who have actual jobs and titles that their girlfriends didn’t give them.

  4. Jenna says:

    It’s J.Lo when is she NOT try hard? The lace dress was pretty good; she does have the body for it. I just can’t stand her duck face when she poses. I think it’s transferred over to baby douche face as well. o_O

  5. marie says:

    I don’t hate the white dress, only someone like her could pull it off though. Way to much eyeliner IMO. And Casper appears to be wearing to much foundation? Bad, bad bear..

  6. Sisi says:

    her make-up looks bad on the photo’s, but she actually looked pretty in the show

    this isn’t the first time Casper dressed like a waiter to one of these events

  7. annabelle says:

    The white is PATHETIC and so so so try hard. I was embarrassed for her, quite frankly.

    Did you notice that when Ben won that she and Casper were among the last to sit down from the ovation? I don’t know why that tickled me so.

    The black is lovely, but she should have done something about the eye make up. It looks like last call mascara with corpse pink lipstick.

  8. some bitch says:

    Jlo’s face looks off. I can’t put my finger on it but she looks super tweaked.

    Don’t like either dress. Blah!

    • Cazzie says:

      Yes, I agree – the bridge of her nose looks smushed in, almost like it’s trying to disappear into the middle of her face.

      Perhaps it was just the lighting?? Or maybe something else. I read somewhere once about a ‘botox nose job’ where a skilled doctor can use botox to change the shape of the nose by paralyzing certain surrounding muscles. Maybe it was that.

  9. Arock says:

    I’d live to see her in something tailored. She has a great body but the whole Victoria’s seceret body stocking as evening wear thing is over. It s way more “stripper wedding” than award show.

  10. Marianne says:

    I would have rather have seen her in the black dress on the red carpet.

  11. Agnes says:

    Meh. didn’t Kim K. wear something like this recently? Never a good thing.

  12. Lukie says:

    The white dress was about the exes: Diddy AND Affleck. Imagine the conversation between Affleck and Diddy if they were alone for a good 2 minutes after seeing her in that dress. I was begging, BEGGING for the camera to go to each of them when she was on stage…BEGGING!

    I like her in it personally. She is one of the few that could pull off that type of dress…

  13. Ranunculus says:

    I am not really a fan of her but she sure knows how to rock a dress. Both dresses are gorgeous and she looks great in them.

  14. epiphany says:

    Her dress looks like the “Ambiance, Store for Lovers” wedding night negligee.

  15. QQ says:

    They both look like a pair of assholes Him especially but also her trying to Big willie Styles at award shows that she aint getting nominated on

  16. Miss Kiki says:

    Everything about both looks just screams 2002. I just CAN’T with her.

  17. hoya_chick says:

    I have never seen a Zuhair Murad dress I liked. All their stuff looks so trashy and cheap! What is this outfit? It’s horrible. I saw that last night and thought oh it must be Zuhair Murad! And I didn’t mean it as a compliment. Didn’t she wear something similar last year? I cannot believe she isn’t ashamed to take him to these type of things? I guess if Clooney can bring Keibler then JLO can bring Casper? Ha,

  18. L says:

    It was pretty much the same dress that Ms. South Carolina wore at the Miss America pageant the night before. And it pretty much read the same way. Ugh.

  19. Ms Kay says:

    Well, she is kinda scary on the last pic with try to hard face by sucking her cheeks in… Seriously she is pretty and when she genuinely smiles or laughs she looks amazing.

    Also JLo and Casper bumped into Diddy, that pic is everywhere on the net, I wonder what Diddy told Casper when they met :-D

  20. Auj says:

    I do wish she would get a good-looking guy for a change.

  21. MG says:

    Yes, her body is AMAZING…but enough with the sheer, nude, lace, sparkly stuff. Those jumpsuits that she wears during her concerts, now the dresses…move on to something else!! Besides, Britney did it the best a million years ago!

  22. dorothy says:

    In her attempt to look sexy, she always come’s off as tacky and cheap.

  23. Rachelstein says:

    In the black dress her makeup looks rediculous and caked on. The dress was an improvement on the white one. Casper is sooooo in the closet

  24. GiGi says:

    Best shot of the night: JLo and her boy, er, man talking to DDL during the commercial break! I laughed out loud, for real.

  25. bc says:

    Is boy toy wearing makeup to cover the neck tattoo? AHAHAHAHA

  26. Filter free jenny says:

    The lace dress looks like the dress worn by the villan in Ghostbusters.

    There is no J.Lo, only Zool.

  27. Cathy says:

    I didn’t like either dress. His white tux thing is disgusting to. Why don’t these two just go away.

  28. Quinn says:

    Her face is looking beat in the closeups.

  29. Dhavynia says:

    Why was she there?
    She dresses for the same purpose these women tweak their faces but the results are always the same. She should market a line a fragrance by the name Desperation because she always reeks of it

  30. Lisa B. says:

    Jennifer does have the body for this sort of dress but I think she’s getting to old for it. There are classier ways to flaunt what you got than this, especially at her age. But then again, class is not really her strength, right?
    I wonder how awkward it must be for Ben Affleck, with his new persona of respectful director and family man, to be forever associated with this trainwreck of a woman. Oh, the bad partner decisions we make when we’re young.

    • Belle says:

      I agree Lisa… she does have the body for it, but they (J-Lo AND the dresses) are getting old. She seems stuck in the styles she wore years ago, when they were sexy and fresh. Not so much anymore.

      On your other point, I kind of don’t think it was awkward for Ben at all. It’s been many years since he made that mistake… and he had his lovely wife there to support him, looking classy and gorgeous. ;)

  31. serena says:

    Seems like I’ve seen this look from her a hundred of times already.

  32. lucy2 says:

    I hated the white lace one, it looked so obvious and cheap to me, and I feel like she’s done that look before.
    Black dress is a vast improvement.

  33. vale says:

    He’s smart not to propose. String her along, and get venerated by her in the meantime. It’s a subtle shift in power, despite her being the more publicly powerful of the two. Also,she seems to love the thrill of the beginning, no matter who with, and then get quickly bored.

  34. Nev says:

    She is a movie star with many critical and box-office hits under her couture belt. That’s why she was there. She may have had no big hits lately but so have most of the people there. She is still a movie star.

  35. tabasco says:

    she made my worst list. she wore nearly the exact same dress, except in black, to music awards last year. and the nude part on this one, against the white, looked like really thick, obvious, gross pantyhose. come ON. and her makeup in both looks is a melty mess.

  36. hillbillyinthecorner says:

    She just starting to show her age….and the ugly inside is working to the surface again….going have to go and have it botoxed and peeled off again……. Miss South Carolina looked a lot better in that Dress at the Miss America contest….

  37. jamminatorr says:

    The white dress was AWFUL and so, so dated. It made me think of a “Gypsy Wedding” wedding dress.

  38. Lizzie says:

    The white dress is fine, if she can pull it off she can go for it (and i think she pulled it off). Can we take in how Casper wasnt wearing a tie? WTF?

  39. G says:

    She would look so much better with a MAN and not this man-child that quite frankly makes her look “older”. He looks like her son in that 5th photo.

    • Anoni Mus says:

      This so much! I actually think she’s beautiful, and behind the tons of makeup and the stupid poses she has really aged well and she doesn’t look like she has tweaked too much.

      She can pull both gowns off well, but I wish she would change it up a bit and move on from the skintight “nude-illusion” dresses.

      What really bothers me is this Casper guy. They make a ridiculous couple. Imagine her with someone like Clooney. *sigh* (maybe just my love of Out of Sight speaking, but they were hot together.)

  40. Ann says:

    I’m surprised she could bring Casper the Friendly Golddigger with her. Usually, presenters don’t get a plus one for the Globes – only nominees. There’s a space crunch at the venue. Unless she got one of the studios etc that buy a table to give her a spot for him.

    And I’d have sworn that gown was Marchesa. It’s hideous, and looked awful on her. Attention getting, yes, but not in a good way.

  41. Sunny says:

    Haters hate. Ahahaaahaa! That’s what they do. She is Latina. She likes to play up the sexy, especially with a smack talking ex and his wife in the house. She’s hot and glamourous in the white dress. However, the black doesn’t support her mom breasts very well and her make-up looks atrocious.
    As far as her BOY friend… she’s having her fun, but I think she needs a more mature man and a shoulder to lean on.

  42. blonde on the dock says:

    What could she possibly see in that boy doll? Last night was not her best. She appears to be over botoxed around the eyes.

  43. Janet says:

    Comes a point where it’s no longer necessary for a woman of a certain age to flaunt what she’s got just to prove she’s still got it.

    But I had what she’s got when I was her age, hell, I’d have flaunted it too.

  44. Kosmos says:

    My first thought was why in the heck is SHE giving an award? The usual, she probably pushed or talked her way into being on stage, again, she has to be in the spotlight associated with top people, gag, she is so obnoxious….I’m sure that Ben could have had something to do with it or her connections with someone else, but to me, she is SO not in the same league with these people. She should NOT have been allowed to go on stage. Adding to all that, in her own right, she has almost no talent, either in singing or acting. She can take her little Casper and go off into the Sunset…

  45. Bella says:

    She is ridiclious… is that her bother?
    Her dress was the same old thing,time to dress more elegant ,you are to old for this look.

  46. Rex says:

    ughhh this woman’s ego has reached epic proportions. What does she have to feel proud/famous about? I mean honestly…

  47. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Wow, she looks awful in both looks. I like her hair in the white dress though. But her makeup for both looks is awful. And I don’t like that white dress. At all.

    And her boyfriend is so ugly. Yuck.

  48. Maritza says:

    She looks beautiful in both dresses except for the makeup in the black dress. It looks as if she warned Casper not to smile with his usual big smile because he looks goofy.

  49. Lulu says:

    Looks to me like she got her eyes done. At the very least. She does look beautiful though. She has always tended to wear her makeup shiny, but I agree it was out of hand by the time she was posing in the black dress.

  50. wonderwoman21 says:

    OMG I LOOOOVE the white dress! It’s gorgeous and unique!

  51. citygirlsf says:

    Her make up in the second set of pics is AWFUL.

  52. mimi says:

    The dress is ridiculous, try-hard and great- all at the same time.

    This is actually one of the things I like about Jen Lopez. She is bold and sexy and would not play it safe.

    Her hair and make-up is ALWAYS flawless.

    I do not like that you wrote that Ben is ashamed of her, not the other way around.
    Excuse me, but of the two, he was the one who cheated, gambled treated his “love” life” as part of his career and proved to be as lacking of any stamina and easy to influence.
    He was the one trying to blame his bad acting/ career moves on their fame and public attention (i.e. on her basically).

    I give her so much more credit than him as a woman.

  53. LouLou says:

    I like the black dress, but what is going on with her face??? Is it just bad makeup? She does look like a zombie!

  54. nikzilla37 says:

    she had work done and looks terrible.

  55. Sparkly says:

    I wish she – and everyone – would stop wearing dresses like those. All I can think when I see them is “ice capades”.

    The black one’s not bad, for her.

  56. LAK says:

    the embarrassment of this boy is demonstrated in these pictures

    What does he bring to the table??

    Look at the pic of him laughing with Harvey??really???


    As Lainey says, JLO should be embarrassed by him. i am so embarrassed for her.

  57. jamie says:

    She looks like his mom!!! I hope she got him home before his curfew!

  58. Grace says:

    Poor Jen. She brought her sagging career, table cloth dress, and bald little troll doll to watch hot-like-fire Ben get awards while his perfect family watches.

    That’s gotta hurt. *edited because I’m typing while giggling at Jen’s face of wax*

  59. skuddles says:

    Yoo hoo, makeup people… JLO needs a powder pat down STAT! It looks like she’s melting.

  60. Angelie says:

    Her boyfriend Casper reminds me of a younger Jon Cryer from Two and a Half Men. He looks like he could be his son.

  61. Asdfg says:

    I think the white washes her out! Not her best look, imo! :P Her boy toy always wears white,too? What;s up with that? LOL

  62. Keliki says:

    At first I hated the white dress, but then I thought about Jennifer being a Leo. It’s just her look. She goes for what she likes and owns it. The Kristen Wiig sp? Post is all about how, “she couldn’t find her look last season, and now she looks like Jen. A.”

    So, Jennifer Lopez is getting trashed for being true to her style, and just because it isn’t the same cookie cutter dress everyone else wore its automatically horrible/JLo trying hard.

    The GG are nothing more than a chance for the studios to increase profits for their films in theaters and coming soon films. Hints why Jennifer Lopez was there…

    Also, her second dress is a snooze fest, and isn’t that dissimilar from Kristen’s Michael Kors dress.
    Just saying.

    Sorry to come across as a Jenny from the block defender. She isn’t really my favorite, but she does know how to market. The Kardashians and all the other “entrepreneurs” in Hollywood would still be regular run-of-the mill rich girls if it hadn’t been for marketing geniuses like Jennifer.

  63. tracking says:

    To me she looks stiff and unhappy. She can be very pretty, charming, and ” glowy” when she’s on. She’s not on. And yes that white dress is fug.

  64. Isabel says:

    Why is Jlo’s face melting and why is there a gardengnome next to her?
    Ah.. questions, questions.
