Jennifer Lopez in Versace at the Fashion Rocks event: sexy or try-hard?


Here are some photos from last night’s Fashion Rocks event. I remember, more than a decade ago, when this event was actually a big deal. Not so much anymore. At this point, I’ve got to wonder why Jennifer Lopez is slumming it on this red carpet. I realize she still hustling her album and her new “Booty” single, but seriously J.Lo, you are better than this. Her red carpet outfit is Versace. I hate this season’s half-booty-short/half-skirt thing. And it looks like Jennifer pissed off her makeup artist again. Oh, and guess who was there? Casper Smart, of course. Because J.Lo never learns.



During the Fashion Rocks telecast, Justin Bieber was on stage with Lara Stone. This happened and it was disgusting.

More photos… Nicki Minaj in Saint Laurent. I actually love this?


Naomi Campbell in Versace. I wish J.Lo had worn this. Naomi looks amazing. She’s a vampire.


Rita Ora in a truly terrible Stephane Rolland Couture dress. She was the worst dressed.

    Why is Casper Smart standing like that? Is his bouffant throwing him off balance, or something?

  2. Nev says:

    Naomi JLO just happening and gorgeous.

  3. Candy Love says:

    I watch some of the show last night and what I took away from it is that JLO should never sing live .

    Casper Smart really JLO really why do I get the filling that she will marry this one. I starting to feel like there break up was fake and she trying to use the single image to promote her album, that why she sees Casper on the DL.

    • Pager90 says:

      She marries all of them who she can get to the alter.

    • Kosmos says:

      JLo is only mildly-talented, which makes me really wonder how she became popular at all…..personally, I don’t like her personality and it is well known that she’s a diva and pushes people around a bit. Her talent is minimal, at best. About the ugly one-legged dress she is wearing here……definitely too try-hard!! She takes herself oh, so seriously !!

  4. Chris2 says:

    Naomi: goddess, of course, but also, the only dress I’d believe to be ‘designah’.
    (All the rest look, imo, like the cheap tat offered in those numerous high street shops full of screeching teenagers searching for the maximum-tarty look.)

  5. Skins says:

    Way too try-hard for a woman her age

    • Kelly says:

      Exactly what I was thinking.

    • homegrrrl says:

      I don’t think it’s an “age” thing, and we can all be creative at any age. It’a an “angular” issue; this whole ensemble is made for a more angular person. Someone tall and gaunt with the hair pulled back. I don’t’ like when JLO wears stick figure clothing on her curvy body, and black isn’t her color either. It’s a case of an artsy design on the wrong person.

    • Tulip Garden says:

      For me, it isn’t an age thing. I find JLO to be a stunning woman with a stunning body. She’s just beautiful. For me, it is great up top but the shorts/skirt thing just looks stupid on anyone.
      It’s like the new form of the “elegant dress but with granny panties-swimwear bottoms with see thru material”. It just doesn’t work.

    • Erinn says:

      Mostly, I just hate when she slicks her hair back SO TIGHT. It’s the same exact hair style she’s been pulling since I was in elementary school in the very early 2000’s. It wasn’t even a great look then.

    • Antonym says:

      I was just talking about this. Originally I said the same thing, but once I said it out loud I stopped myself. I don’t want to be ageist, and I think we deserve to feel sexy o rbeautiful at any age. My refined opinion: I don’t think this would be an acceptable fashion choice for anyone, regardless of age, but think we are more forgiving of young people making these types of choices. I think we see it we think it’s a bit much, but then write it off as a youthful mistake. When we see someone older making the mistake we aren’t as ready to forgive because we expect them to know better. Just my opinion. I think the only place id find this ‘dress’ acceptable/interesting is on the runway – not all runway looks should venture into the real world.

  6. zan says:

    well that was one awkward video! And he can’t even stand straight for 30 sec, always going for the ape posture. How come they invite him to those events?? With all the trouble is into he shouldn’t be allowed to have that much exposure.

  7. Kiddo says:

    I like the top of J.Lo’s dress, it’s reminiscent of some kind of Cher outfit, but then Donatella always overdoes things, throws in stupid elements, like the entire leg awkwardly sticking out (looking like it’s peeking from an old lady leotard), thinking she is a genius, when she is really just ridiculous instead. And then J.Lo buys into the mess, like the emperor and his new clothes.

  8. Jenns says:

    She looks amazing, but what else is she doing these days other than dressing up for red carpets and giving moochers new trucks for their birthday?

  9. bella says:

    jlo i so, so lovely and gorgeous.
    i don’t know why she dresses this way.
    on stage – fine – but not a red carpet look.
    sometimes her ook is so incredibly beautiful – many of her american idol outfits, for instance – and then she resorts to these trashy looks.
    and, yes, she has reached a certain age and needs to reconsider how she needs to dress accordingly.
    GAWD…is she really back with that boy?
    i don’t get her…she can be with anyone, i’d imagine.
    why does she choose a child with NOTHING to offer her?

    • Pager90 says:

      Only a therapist can help her with her issues and she seems to have plenty with relationships. Something’s just not right with her.

  10. Roxy says:

    J. Lo’s stage outfit looked like a shorter version of the dress Gwen Stefani wore as a presenter at the Emmy’s.

  11. Mia V. says:

    J. Lo’s performance outfit was very Ariana Grande minus the left face stunt. And Naomi looks AMAZING. She sucks on young model blood for a living.

  12. Rusty Machine says:

    JLO would be classic if she just started dressing her age. This is too try hard. Actually, if the shorts/dress combo did not exist it may be ok. But this dress is doing too much.

    • Janet says:

      I can’t stand that shorts/dress thingy. It looked awful on Kerry Washington and it looks awful on her.

  13. Sarah says:

    God she’s so dumb I just can’t with her anymore. AND HE IS UGLY.

  14. Candy Love says:

    I know JLO dress look familiar it’s the longer version to Anne Vyalitsyna dress she wore last year.×580.jpg

  15. kri says:

    Can anyone tell me the exact date of JLO’s lobotomy? I mean, that is the only reason I can think of that she has that dancing turd with her again. And no one the look. She’s gorgeous, but maybe her stylist is mad at her cuz of Casper? Nicki looks good, Naomi is FAB. Rita Ora…ugh,hell no.

  16. halleygee says:

    Ugh, I have two daughters who are into boy bands but SO glad they have NO interest in Justin Beiber! What was that???

    I think JLo is trying hard but it’s what’s expected.

  17. Twinkle says:

    Trashy Vegas drag queen is Jlo’s default look.

  18. db says:

    Overkill. Nicki looks better in my opinion

  19. pnichols says:

    did Casper borrow her butt and hips to fill out the pants?

  20. katie says:

    Naomi Campbell looks like a drag queen

    • Pager90 says:

      :)When I watched a few episodes of Rupaul’s Drag Race, Some drag queens were quite gorgeous. JLO sometimes has a drag Queen look too, but I still find she and Naomi gorgeous.

      P.S. Is Casper wearing a “tutu” under his suit? His hips are looking wide.

  21. maggie says:

    How can you call Naomi ageless. Have you seen her without her weave?

    • Pager90 says:

      Have we seen many in Hollywood without their weaves?
      Also weaves can’t give a person flawless skin, which she has, Naomi is stunning.

  22. Jem says:

    Does Minaj ever smile? She always looks depressed

  23. Abigail says:

    JLo is both try-hard and sexy, but she’s been try-hard and sexy for a decade and a half. Honestly, I don’t think anyone does it better. That woman’s body is unreal. As for Casper, I can’t even waste brain cells thinking about him.

  24. CatFoodJunkie says:

    JLo is NOT better than this.

  25. JudyK says:

    JLO always looks too try hard.

    Bieber was disgusting. He was apparently booed before, during and after his obnoxious display. Amazing how he can’t even spit out a one-liner without stumbling.

  26. Pager90 says:

    She’s a gorgeous woman, but I can’t give her kudos because she’s doing the same thing she did 20years ago, showing up at music show redcarpets with backup, dancer boy toys, boyfriends that she’ll probably marry, because she has to try to marry practically Every man she dates and she can’t be alone.
    She’s beautiful but after 3 failed marriages and seeing her doing the same thing for decades , now with This Casper ,just made me see that JLO is not a together woman emotionally.

  27. Ice Queen says:

    J.Lo does look try hard and didn’t she wear something similar sometime ago?
    Nicki looks really great and Naomi too.
    I kinda like Rita Ora’s dress….Don’t yell at me! I’m weird.

  28. Gina says:

    Her extreme wealth affords her to look better in her forties than in her twenties. Not so much for Casper.

  29. Janet says:

    Rita Ora looks like Miss Muffet Meets Morticia.

  30. Katrina says:


    Get of Jlos case, she is not with Crapper, he is now Nicki Minaj Cheograph er, Nicki was performing

  31. rlh says:

    Everything about Lopez is try hard these days. It’s gonna get worse when she hits 50.

  32. Debutante says:

    JLo has been try hard forever. With men and fashion.

  33. Al says:

    Tacky dress on JLo, but stunning makeup as usual. Red eyelids never looked this alluring before.

    Naomi is a supermodel. Period.

    Stunning complexion on both.

  34. mslady1972 says:

    JLo is still an attractive woman…for her age. She constantly wears things that would quite frankly look better on a younger woman with a better figure (Rhianna for example). She had some really beautiful years when she was married to Marc Anthony. She dressed beautifully and tastefully when they were they were together. Since their split it’s just straight hoochie gear 24/7. Her contemporaries are women in their forties, not twenties. She can look sexy and beautiful and all that in real, age appropriate, gorgeous clothes. She needs to cover up. She looks good but I don’t think she hearing the truth.
