Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad at the Globes: try-hard or perfect & fun?


I think I saved the most controversial for one of the last fashion posts of the day. Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad. Her hair was big and fluffy. Her gown was the largest on the red carpet. Her boobs were hanging out. The slit was cut to her biscuit. There was some kind of built-in cape/sleeve drama. She was dripping in diamonds. And you know what? I kind of loved it. I loved how EXTRA she was. I love that she wanted to have fun. I love that she came with her costar as her date (Ryan Guzman). I love that Jennifer never thinks “less is more.” Nope. More is always more. And J.Lo always does more.



I’m sorry, but Kerry Washington was such a disappointment. I think she lost her fashion mojo when she wore Marchesa a few years ago and she’s never gotten it back. This shiny Mary Katrantzou was too stiff and weird. The skirt was bad. The colorblocking (or whatever that is) is terrible.



Felicity Jones in Dior. The only other person to wear Dior last night was Amal Clooney. I wonder if there was a mix-up at Dior? Anyway, I didn’t like this on the red carpet, in motion, but in photos… I sort of get it. I think it’s too conservative and stuffy for such a young woman though.

    I loved JLo – she looked like my first Barbie – which was called My Golden Dream and came with gold wedges and a cape. It was so over the top, but in a very JLo way. The only think I didn’t like was whatever was poking her left breast the entire time. No one pointed that out to her?

    • Bridget says:

      I found that distracting when she presented. It looked like the edge of a built in underwire.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      That’s really cute about your first Barbie. I miss having you around more.

    • kcarp says:

      Funny you mentioned Barbie.

      I thought Kerry Washington looked like a doll in a magic clip dress. Anyone with young children know about the magic clip dresses?

    • G says:

      I know! Was that a nipple, a pimple WTH was it? Bugged me.

    • Carolyn B. Baker says:

      I thought Jennifer looked tired in that dress/outfit we have all seen her boobs her if you take out7 threads I am naked and that isn’t fashion…..they dogged Kerry Washington who I thought looked really cool. Jennifer is dressed for an old movie ….cocktails on the beach at sunset or sunset on the desert outside of an elegant tent. You never notice the jewels …..once was a shock maybe twice but always naked….boring.

  2. mimif says:

    I feel like J.Lo is our (my) generation’s Joan Collins. She is going to work that schtick til her last breath, and probably look pretty damn good doing it.

    Kerry Washington, whyyy?

  3. Delta Juliet says:

    I hated J-Lo’s look. Maybe I’m just tired of her. But I especially hated the way the bust was on that dress. It looks like it was poking her in the boob. Not a good look.

    • FurballFriend says:

      I agree. She always looks so dated.

    • LadyMTL says:

      I hated it too, mostly because she’s worn some version of that dress for the last 10 years or so. It’s done, it’s dated and I honestly think she could do so much better.

      • Anne tommy says:

        Agree, I’m not a fan of jlo or her dress. I gather jeremy renner made some comment about her cleavage when they co presented, presumably to demonstate how hetrosexual he is….

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Agree. She. Always. Looks. The. Same.

      • Cherrypie09 says:

        Really, she always looks the same? Because all of you are so glamorous and havent worn the same pair of jeans and probable hairstyle the last five years? Bunch of judgemental women

        Nothing is ever good with you “fashionistas” lol

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        In case you didn’t notice, this is a post about people’s opinions on what celebrities are wearing. I just don’t get you little fan girls who can’t take it when somebody says something negative about your obsession. Yes, she always looks the same. Big hair or slicked back, tight, dated dress, boobs hanging out, legs hanging out. She is a beautiful woman. She could do better. In my opinion, which I’m entitled to.

      • vauvert says:

        Well the only thing she has gone for is the “I am the hottest woman evah” and she won’t quit, no matter how ridiculous she looks. We get it, you work hard, diet, drink smoothies (or whatever the hell she is selling) and you need to show it all every. single. time. Boring. Too much hair teasing, too many hair pieces, too much fake tan, too much cleavage, too much crotch flashing. Ugh.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I agree, LadyMTL. It really says something about overuse when that plunging of a neckline is so boring that it elicits a yawn.

        She’s beautiful, but there are so many ways to showcase that. She is clearly in a rut.

  4. Blythe says:

    I love everything about Jennifer’s dress choice. It’s perfect. She was having fun and wasn’t taking herself too seriously and she looked good doing it, too!

    • qwerty says:

      Are you joking? No one takes themselves more seriously than J. Lo

    • Skeptic in the room says:

      JLo is stuck in Peter Pan mode. Shes going to be shoving her tatas and coochie in our faces into her 80s. This is her last remaining claim to fame so trust me, she takes it very seriously.

  5. QQ says:

    Jlo and a Champagne Colored Glittery Gown Is to Red Carpets what Aniston is to a Black Dress.. Once again Im convinced Hollywood Trolls them Both and Beckinsdale Inviting them… To Present.. but her Body was Banging The wigs tho look a bit too Ariana Grandeing

    Kerry’s Dress shouldn’t have happened to her

    Felicity is just… Look .. maybe the COLOR wasnt bad but That Neckline?!??! uGH

    • mimif says:

      …and Beckinsale inviting them. Lol, yes!

    • Renee says:

      I don’t understand why Kerry rarely looks good that these things. She is a beautiful woman, it is a crime against humanity that she consistently shows up to these things looking so horrid.

      • Janet says:

        I wanted to slap Kerry Washington upside the head when I saw that color-blocked mess. Actually the dress wouldn’t be bad at all if it was all one color. But that second color totally ruined it.

        I’ve said before and will say again — whoever dresses Olivia Pope should dress Kerry Washington. She should borrow one of her Scandal outfits for the red carpet. She’s got lousy fashion sense.

      • Renee says:

        She really does have bad fashion sense, I don’t understand. Maybe that’s her way of standing out??? But that is a good idea to have the stylist from Scandal dress her for these things. Or she should hire the woman who dresses Lupita and that woman from Downton Abbey. That way she could ocassionally wear something fug but mainly would hit it out of the park.

      • vauvert says:

        That fabric reminded me of office chair upholstery. For real.

    • Jax says:

      When I saw Kerry’s dress I wanted to start singing: I’m a little teapot short and stout……

      I looked at a website that had 97 pics from the red carpet. I was saying no, no, no, horrible, more horrible, worst, no, no,…. I swear–97% or the dresses were terrible or worse. I’ve never seen such a consistently bad night for ladies wear. Maybe 5 dresses were tolerable. The yellows stood out as okay, a couple of the reds, though why anyone would want their dress to blend right into the red carpet, I do not know. Terrible night. Absolutely no one looked fantastic. No one.

      Amy Adams dress was not an impressive color but it fit her nicely and was…somewhat better than the rest, a little….

      Amal Clooney–Dracula Edition–Those eyebrows, those ill fitting gloves….the miles of black….hair….fabric. Hideous.

      I thought Emma Stone looked adorable. Hair and makeup was radiant. If you lost the bow or whatever that length of material hanging down the side was, then her outfit was cute. A little causal for the GG’s, but cute nevertheless.

  6. kri says:

    It seems like Dior is going back to it’s dresses in the early fifties. The looks are definitely interesting, but I hate that blue shade. As for JLO-I don’t know. I mean, of course she is smokin’, bangin hot. I think I want to see something different tho-not just nude sex personified. nothing wrong with it but I’m curious to see her dressed. Up.

  7. Marianne says:

    JLO looked better on camera then she does in pictures. But I hated the hair.

    Kerry’s dress would have looked really pretty if it had been all one colour.

    I do like Felicity’s dress. It was interesting, and she looked regal in it. Im not sure it will make my list or not. But I liked it.

  8. Diana says:

    Jlo is a goddess. Id wear the f out of that dress if my figure looked half as good. She is so gorgeous an she owns it!!

    • GingerCrunch says:

      Came here to say the same: Goddess! Kind of in love with the blue dress. That COLOR! Kerry Washington: no.

    • maeliz says:

      Jlo is beautiful. Who wouldn’t want to be able to wear something like that? I agree with you

    • pk says:

      Yes she is stunning! And certainly doesn’t look like she will be turning 46 this year.

    • Annie says:

      Yes- she is absolutely stunning. I would have said no to the cape, but she can carry it off. Her hair and makeup was perfection – IMO.
      She’s looking the best she has ever looked

  9. Nikki says:

    I actually like Kerry’s. I think it looks cute on her and the contrast of the two colors works well with each other.

  10. OSTONE says:

    So much fabric!!!

  11. Birdie says:

    She has the face and body to look absolutely stunning and she ruins it with this cheap look. Something more elegant, classy and more old Hollywood would flatter her so much more. We know you are sexy and single, we get it.

  12. Grace says:

    Loved JLo’s entire look last night!! It was glam and perfect on her. Felicity looked great too. The complete opposite of JLO but she pulled it off very nicely I think.

  13. Mop top says:

    She needs to shoot her makeup artist. It looked like she had two black eyes.

  14. Kitten says:

    Enough with the open-mouthed posing!

    • Esmom says:

      Amen sister. She’ll be 97 years old and still doing it, I’m afraid.

    • doofus says:

      Hate that too.

      I know it’s supposed to be a “sexy” look, but all I see is a “say whaaaaaaa?….” a la Jeff Spicoli.

  15. TWINK says:

    She’s just so incredibly beautiful, I just can’t stand it! She ages in reverse!

  16. scout says:

    JLO flashing her boobs all the time these days, she must feel confident and happy. She looks fit.

    Blue dress is tooooo big like a tent.

  17. Judyk says:

    Thought JLo’s look was HIDEOUS and cheap looking to the MAX. Hate the way she dresses. Is that a hickey, zit, or mole on her boob–found it totally distracting while watching last night.

    However, I do think she’s a great dramatic actress–can’t say the same for her corny comedy/romantic work.

    • Kitten says:

      A “great dramatic actress”??
      You’re in a generous mood this morning.

      • TWINK says:

        The great Roger Ebert said she was one of his favorite actresses, Out of Sight, An Unfinished Life, even in Parker. She’s a great actress overshadowed by her JLo persona.

    • iheartjacksparrow says:

      I was also staring at the dark spot on her left boob, trying to decide what that was.

  18. Lilacflowers says:

    JLo is the Cher of her generation when it comes to red carpets

  19. Snappy says:

    JLo looks like she just came out of a He-man cartoon or comic con…complete with her evil face, skimpy clothing and a cape, posing and glowing with the power of Greyskull …lol…she kinda looks like Evil Lyn’s cousin. Ouch! There’s something pinching her left boob on the first pic…
    Felicity Jones’ dress color is beautiful on her…

  20. maeliz says:

    Ketty Washingtons dress looks like it’s made of pink fish skin. Looks like scales

  21. Janet says:

    Okay Jenny, we know you still got it. You’ve got a killer body. But flaunting it like that at your age is just tacky. Cover it up.

  22. mar says:

    I hated J-lo last night. The hair, the makeup and the gown were overkill in every way.

  23. perplexed says:

    It kind of seemed like no one was really impressed with J-Lo’s dress (including Jeremy Renner who made the “globes” crack), which I don’t think is the reaction she was going for.

    I didn’t kind of laugh at what she said to Billy Bob Thornton when he seemed to be trying to figure out what to do with the microphone. What she said was so matter-of-fact and not kiss-up-like….

  24. PunkyMomma says:

    To me, JLo tries too hard. The big hair, the big dress. If she tries any harder, she’s gonna morph into Mariah Carey.

  25. Dorotea says:

    JLo looked stunning! Perfection.

  26. Cel says:

    If this is one of the last posts, can you please put up a shot of Gwyneth Paltrow (if it hasn’t already been done)?

    There is something different about her face, but I can’t figure it out.

  27. Otaku fairy says:

    I love J.Lo’s style- and I like the fact that she doesn’t feel the need to cover up and dress modestly just because she’s not 25 anymore. She’s still gorgeous. This isn’t one of my favorite looks of hers, but I still like it. This is who she is- why should she put it away and suddenly dress demurely just because she’s not young? Don’t tone it down!

    • chaine says:

      I agree. She’s my age. Love that she still looks so fantastic & obviously feels so confident. I’m grossed out by the film, though. I think at this point America has had enough of female teachers getting it on with underage boys.

  28. Jayna says:

    I thought Jennifer Lopez looked great. The beauty of the gown was seeing her walk on the red carpet with the whole back flowing the way it was, very old glamour as far as the whole look of the back, even if not the front.

    But I feel for the girl. I finally saw Ben Affleck’s side/frontal nude scene in slow mo. Ben is quite gifted. And she ended up with Casper.

    I now know why Jennifer Garner adores Ben past his flaws. LOL He deserved a Golden Globe for giving us girls some nudity that we rarely get compared to men.

  29. Twinkle says:

    Trying TOO hard. This girl always tries too hard.

  30. Happy21 says:

    Her eye make up was a little dark and I found her TOO tanned but I liked her hair and I liked the dress.

  31. Maria says:

    JLo is gorgeous and I love her but she’s too try-hard. I feel like she’s done this look many times before… And her mouth parted pose is getting too old…

  32. db says:

    JLo’s in the best shape of her life, she’s gorgeous. I’m not feeling this particular ensemble though. The tape on her boobs looks pinchy, and I want more color on her lips, and I don’t know –maybe the nails are too long and pointy? I want color, dammit! Too beige!
    Good for her for shaking things up on the r.c.. But. It’s a little RuPaul, without the humor and light touch.

  33. Angie says:

    Ugh JLo. I’ve never liked JLo but I respect her hustle. I think she’s done an incredible job preserving herself via eating right, working out and the perfect amount of plastic surgery. But good lord when is she going to stop trying to compete with 20 somethings? She’s still hot but she should transition into a more age appropriate sexy look because this is absurd to me. I’m legit embarrassed for the woman. I cringed when Jeremy Renner talked about her golden globes. I wanted to smack him until I saw her reaction. I think she LIKED that kind of attention and to me that’s kinda sad.

  34. Curious Cole says:

    JLo was so try hard, it felt desperate. We all remember that green Versace number, it’s time to move on now -and ditch the porn face.

  35. Greek Chic says:

    Jlo is amazing! A goddess. Her look here is over the top yes, but i love it.

    Glad to see that Keri Washingthon chose a Greek designer but this dress is terrible. Mary Katrantzou can do better than this mess.

  36. phlyfiremama says:

    J Lo looks like the “ghost of Ariana Grande Latte, future”. We get it~you have it ALL. Boobs, biscuit, legs, face, hair, tan.
    On a side but related note, WTH was going on with the eyebrow situations last night???

  37. Joh says:

    Cute use for a shower curtain.
    She has a GOOD surgeon, but little restraint so we can expect her looks to jump the shark in a few years!

  38. RussianBlue says:

    I think I’m alone here, but I liked Kerry washingtons dress!

  39. Sheila says:

    I HATE that dress on JLO, it screams “pay attention to me”, which is what she wants, but it’s for all the wrong reasons. Overtanned (she is SO ORANGE, needs to lay off the spray tan!!). , overboobed (she has never learned that restraint is sexier than pouring out of clothes), just OVERKILL. I think it’s going to be SO FUN watching JLO inch towards 50. She will be entering Madonna territory, another gal who has to be sexy ALL THE TIME and aging will hit hard. She is just a procedure or 2 away from Madge, but she’s on her way to aging sexpot too.

  40. Camille (The Original) says:

    If it was a different awards RC like the MTVs or Grammys or something, I’d say sure JLo looks great etc, but I’m sorry I just thought she looked tacky. Classy thy name is not JLo.

  41. OTHER RENEE says:

    You know how JLo could really shock everyone ? If she came to an awards show NOT dressed like the Queen of Hooch.

  42. HoustonGrl says:

    I loved it too, but it was just a little bit too tight. And there was some kind of underwire issue going on.

  43. chiamaka says:

    Kerrys dress is made from nigerian fabrIc called shadda or guinea. Pls cut her some slack.

    • Anony says:

      …but why did she pair it with red/black shoes?!?! With purple/pink?!?! I don’t get it unless there’s a colour-blindness issue.

  44. Alexa says:

    Wow! That last dress (Dior on Felicity Jones – did you say?) excited me with its modern new-look elegance.

    HELLO? {{ ello, ello, ello, ellooo??}} Is anyone else with me? {{ with me, with me, with meeee???}}

    • Belly says:

      Me! Me!

      I loved it too – I had to come here to find out who it was. I love it. So elegant, the silhouette and cut at the neck and shoulders is divine. The skirt is maybe a teeny bit full though =D
