Jennifer Lopez’s shiny miniskirt: tacky or totally cute?


Jennifer Lopez has been named the global brand ambassador for Gillette Venus razors, and yesterday she did an event for the brand. It was the launch of the “Venus Goddess Fund” held at Radio City Music Hall. At first I was like “Damn, Jenny, that miniskirt is kind of inappropriate for a charity launch.” But considering the event is sponsored by lady razors, I think showing off the legs is probably required. So… I like the skirt. The skirt with the blouse… not that great. I do like her hair, too.

Also, a question: is Jennifer Lopez the best spokes model for razors? I’m seriously asking. While I like Jennifer’s curvy body, I think Gillette might have tried to sign a celebrity lady who is known for having amazing legs, right? Like…um… Charlize? That was just the first lady who came to mind. But I guess Jennifer was chosen because she appeals to a wider fan-base of women, and because of American Idol and all that stuff. Speaking of, how is Jennifer doing? She’s getting good reviews as one of the new judges, and she’s apparently not engaging in some big diva war with anybody. That doesn’t sound like Jennifer!

    I finally caught Idol last night, and I didn’t think she was too bad. I think she’s definitely the Paula on the show and it seems like she respects that these kids are really hopeful this is their big chance, so the diva is toned down somewhat. But she’s made up like she’s about to go down a red carpet.

    I think Randy’s trying to take the place of Simon as the straight-talker, but the judging lacks the bite it used to have.

  2. bella says:

    WOW…she’s just gorgeous.

  3. guesty says:

    Totally cute. She has the best bod & her legs rock. AI is good this year. They’re running her commercials during too.

  4. LT says:

    I agree that the skirt was probably that short because she needed to show off her legs for the razor aspect.

    Otherwise it’s just tacky. You’re in your 40s lady, time to put the miniskirts to bed.

  5. brin says:

    Kinda tacky but she has great legs.

  6. malachais says:

    I love AI this season, and it seems like she toned herself down a bit. I don’t love the outfit but that seems to be her style. She looks good as usual. With that said, I highly doubt she actually used Gillette razors, lol.

  7. texasmom says:

    I think she looks great for what the event is — her legs are actually part of the story in this case. Also like her pretty well on AI this season. She is very done up but that is her persona.

  8. bros says:

    I think she is the very definition of talentless hack, but I have to say she looks great and her legs are rockin’.

    but on another note, how sad is it that jenny from the block JLo international pop star has been reduced to television judge and promoter of shaving products. next, she’ll be brand ambassador for charmin toilet paper like Kim K.

  9. blah says:

    those shoes are amaaaazing.

  10. abel says:

    appropriate for the event i suppose.

  11. QUEST says:

    luv, luv, luv the shoes…I WANT a pair!

  12. DogBoy says:

    in case you haven’t noticed, no pop or movie star stays on top of the charts or box office forever– and considering how much less graceful others have been as they inch past their prime — I think she’s doing pretty well.
    To compare her to an absolute worthless fame-whore like Kardashian, is uncalled-for.

  13. Cheyenne says:

    I’d love to see that skirt on somebody ten years younger.

  14. carrie says:

    really cute

  15. macey says:

    I think she has great legs.

  16. whitedaisy says:

    She looks really good for her age, but she was over 5 years ago.
    I have to say that I am thoroughly impressed with her agent; how does she keep getting work? What has she done lately?
    Gillette is going to regret tying her onto their wagon…

  17. ctkat1 says:

    I get the Kim K. comparison since at this point they are both basically shilling for products and doing television appearances, however…for Kim K. being the brand ambassador for Charmin is the apex of her career, while for JLo it is something that won’t even be listed on her resume, so…there is a difference. And judging American Idol, while it may seem cheesy, is still a huge coup for a pop star- it’s a very popular show and she’s making a TON of money (and she’s pretty charming on it, actually.)

  18. Anna says:

    I really like her skin, but this outfit is just a hot mess. She’s too old for it, definitely, but that fugstrosity wouldn’t even look good on someone half her age.

  19. NayNay says:

    OKay, she just needs to stop now. She looks tacky in that outfit. I do not believe that someone her age should be wearing an outfit like that. No matter how hard you try, you cannot go back in time.

  20. Lee says:

    Hey, what’s with the ageism here? A hot woman with her figure is slagged because she looks great, but oh-my-god-she’s-not-24? And since she’s over 40, she’s disgusting? WTF?

  21. Judy says:

    I LOVE her…she is a doll of a person, but that skirt is tacky. And also love her on Idol. Not missing Simon or any of the past people–this is a good season.

  22. K-MAC says:

    love it! she has great legs!

  23. Audrey says:

    I agree with Lee. Who says women are supposed to dress a certain way??Hey, it’s better than wearing flannel pj bottoms out in public! Anyway, she looks hot and she’s in Hollywood! Yes, this outfit would look tacky walking down the streets of suburbia, but in H-wood, anything goes.

    And I, for the record, am 43 and still wear mini-skirts (not silver lame, but mini-skirts nonetheless).

  24. samihami says:

    Loving Idol this year, including her.

    I agree with the comment on ageism! What’s up with that? She is beautiful and has great legs, so why not show them off, particularly since she is the spokesperson for ladies razors?

    I like the skirt, not the top.

  25. Hollowdoll says:

    It looks just like a mini skirt that my barbie doll wore. LMAO!!!

  26. serena says:

    that’s it, amazing legs. I’m so jealous.

  27. gabs says:

    I love the skirt! I want it! I hate how people say because she is over 40 she shouldnt wear it. wtf? She has good legs so why not? Thats so annoying. Ageism!

    Those who say shes over and talentless..JLO had a great era of hit songs and hot movies. She may not be your favorite or the hot thing at the moment but give credit where credit is due.

  28. Anna says:

    Since I may have been the first to bring this up, I just want to say: I’m not critisizing Jennifer’s age per se or even the fact that she wears mini-skirts and other risqué outfits. She does indeed have a fantastic body, as do many others in her age range and even way above (just look at our sexy minx Helen Mirren). I believe whole-heartedly that a woman, no matter her age, should wear what makes her feel sexy and what flatters her. My issue with this outfit is that it’s not flattering (and I did say it would also not look good on anyone younger) and I think she thought it’d make her look younger and hipper than she is. Imagine her in a short, sexy and strappy Hervé Leger dress and you’d have a bombshell look. But J.Lo’s outfit here? The colour is unflattering, the shimmer looks cheap and tacky and the cut is all wrong too. The dress actually makes her look all matronly and trying-too-hard. I am definitely not ageist and I’m sorry if I offended anyone by not expressing my sentiments correctly.

  29. Arianna says:

    i have a skirt like this and i rock the fuck out of it!
    metallic is delicious. i would have liked it with a different top.. maybe a sheer white blouse

  30. I Choose Me says:

    If you’ve got it rock it! Regardless of age. She looks really good here.

  31. nin says:

    Bros is right.If I told you Jlo would be advertising shaving product 7 or 8 yrs ago would you believe it? ..No because she was at top of her game then.She had her pick of projects she could do.Now she’s a has been.Her only option is to do tv ,to sing at millionaires private parties and do cheesy commercials .Stuff that somebody starting out does ,not some who’s been in the business a while.

  32. Hakura says:

    Her body looks lovely, but the skirt is way tacky. It looks like something you could find in any of those cheap ‘sex/novelty’ shops where strippers get their stage clothes. (I don’t even want to hazard a guess at how much she paid for it, though.)

    Her hair & make up are beautiful. I admit, I gave up on AI a long time ago. They just dragged it on for too long, it got stale after the 3rd season. It lost a lot of what made it so charming & fun to watch.

  33. TeeTee says:

    I don’t like it on her PERIOD.

  34. Stubbylove says:

    Holy Shit her body is amazing – she can wear whatever the hell she wants – esp. after having twins! Go Jenny from the Block!

  35. gg says:

    Her upper and lower halves frequently clash. Seems like on purpose, to be “different” or something. Just looks badly paired by her stylist to me.

  36. jover says:

    Nothing against Jlo personally 27 but having manufactured hit songs in today’s music environment is easy. SHe’s a pr hyped pop tart and her music(which she didn’t write or compose) is generic, pedestrian, surface glitter – nothing more. Twenty years from now they’ll be playing Aretha and Janis Joplin while this pop tart’s music is forgotten. Btw, the woodstock versions of Voodoo Child and Soul sacrifice are two of the greatest live renditions of any songs, anywhere, in the last 50 years, and they weren’t top of the chart hits, and those performances are all over youtube and viewed by millions worldwide 41 yrs later. THere’s a difference between fame and talent and artistry. As I recall milli vinilli and the SPice girls had number one hits – anyone hear their music lately?

  37. original kate says:

    she looks great but i think at her age the skirt should have been a few inches longer or not metallic.

  38. Ron says:

    The times they are a changin people. When I was a kid in the 70’s, women over 40 wore dumpy dresses and had grey hair. I am so glad things are different now. JLo looks great.

  39. DetRiotgirl says:

    She still looks good. I’m not sure how I feel about the outfit though. I don’t hate it. But, I’m not wild about it either.

    However, I don’t think showing her legs is tacky. She’s working an event for a razor company, for one thing. Plus, she has great legs. I just wish the outfit had a bit more color to it. As it is, she looks a little washed out. Even with the glitter she has going on there, it really doesn’t pop very much.

  40. Boat says:


  41. Amanda says:

    JLo has looked the exact same for the past 10 – 11 years. Time for a change, girl.

  42. GGooDeiMC says:

    I love how if this was some regular 40 something woman walking the streets…we would look down on her soooooooo hard.

    But…being a celebrity right along with idol worship…most of you guys just don’t care. Amazing!

    To answer your question…it is TACKY!

  43. Micah says:


  44. princess says:

    If she still got it so she`s doing the right thing to show cos those legs on an almost 42 year old sometimes you don`t even see them on someone in their twenties

  45. Hakura says:

    I don’t think how much leg she’s showing is tacky, especially when she’s appearing at the event under the sponsorship of a ladies razor company.

    I just don’t like the design/or material used in this particular skirt. That’s what makes it tacky, to me.

  46. Lynda says:


  47. Maritza says:

    She looks beautiful!

  48. RHONYC says:

    i think my 17 year old was eyeing one of those…

    in the MALL at ‘Wet Seal’.


  49. Lisal says:

    She gets better and better looking, and me thinks it’s due to being healthy and all the sleep she champions. Great hair and skin, talented stylists, positive attitude, sense of humor. Not a lot of plastic — if any at all. She looks AMAZING.

  50. renai(jrt) says:

    only JLO can pull that look off. I bet Ben Affleck misses her..

  51. Danny says:

    Hubba hubba.

  52. Elle says:

    She is Absolutely Gorgeous.

  53. JenJen says:

    I am predicting a rendition of the BananaRama song “Venus” in one of the commercials. I heard her and her husband are invited to the White House to watch the Superbowl, regardless of those unpaid income taxes.

  54. april says:

    all the judges seem too nice now. like its really hard for them when they have to tell someone no.. its kind of nice to have someone like simon to just say it, or give a harder critique.

  55. supersniffy says:

    I didn’t think they could squeeze that much ham in to such a small space….

  56. Hakura says:

    @JenJen” I heard her and her husband are invited to the White House to watch the Superbowl, regardless of those unpaid income taxes.”

    LOL! That’s a disturbing realization…

    @April (54)- I agree. Paula was replaceable, but Simon definitely isn’t. (You can get anyone to be ‘too nice’ to the contestants.)

  57. renai(jrt) says:

    see now I was a fan of hers until reading that she is going to Obama’s house for super bowl. another liberal bites the dust.

  58. Gabriela says:


  59. al says:

    she is one of the most beautiful woman i have had the pleasure of meeting.

  60. Rgold says:

    Who cares how old she is…she looks incredible and I dont think this is too tacky,I actually think its cute.If it looks good,go for it,age is just a number =)She may feel younger,good for her.

  61. JulieM says:

    Not a big fan of JLo, but I think she looks terrific. Kaiser, you mentioned Charlize in your write up. I think more women can relate to JLo’s body type than Charlizes’, with her mile long legs. Yes, I’m jealous. JLo has some meat on her and that’s not a knock-I think she looks damn good. So, I think it was a good choice to go with J. Wish I could wear that skirt!

    Jover: agree with you completely about JLo’s music as compared to the pure talent of Aretha or Janis. Exactly so!

  62. jr says:

    amazing her.

  63. Blanca says:

    So pretty! Not crazy about the outfit but girl is beautiful!

  64. HonestSally says:

    I bet it looked better in person too…

  65. HonestSally says:

    Oh, now I remember what I wanted to say (in response to criticism of her music). I don’t think every artist has to write and create all her own music what matters is if you can interpret other people’s work and songs. Which I think Jennifer did. Besides, I think her hits and pop persona are in line with the stylings of 90s urban/pop sound like Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey and early Britney Spears…fun for the gym or to dance to at a club, a house party or in your car with high school pals…she wasn’t trying to be a broadway singer, Joni Mitchell or Barbra Streisand.

    I much prefer her to Fergie and the BEPs, did you hear Fergie at the Super bowl half time show?

  66. Kate says:

    She looks beautiful and looks better than most women half her age. I am in my 50’s and very conservative but if I had her beauty and body I would wear mini skirts all the time. It fits her great and it’s in good taste. I don’t know how she does it though, she has so many things going for her how does she keep up. Her music, American Idol, all those comercials, restaurants, perfumes, clothing lines, husband and children and she seems to take time for so many things. She does a good job in everything she does and she also has all her photo shoots. They should name her superwoman and they should shoot her in the magazines with a superwoman outfit. I love her she is great and I wish her and her family lots of happiness and success. Keep wearing those miniskirts no matter what all those jealous women say, you look great.

  67. Pam says:

    NayNay, what world are you living in? She is a celebrity not a regular person like us. Have you seen what some of these celebrities wear, I have seen of few of them older than JLo, black or white with see through dresses and no underwears, J.Lo looks great and can wear her miniskirts any time as long as she has the body to wear them. She can wear that skirt or shorts and look way better than most women in their 20’s. You are just jealous, jealous, bad girl.
