Jennifer Lopez in Maison Yeya at the TIFF ‘Hustlers’ premiere: Big Bird or chic?

Toronto International Film Festival - 'Hustlers' Premiere

Here are some photos from this weekend’s TIFF premiere of Hustlers. This is not the first “premiere,” I don’t think? There was some kind of lowkey premiere event last week or the week before, it was in New York and it was basically the start of the promotional tour. I also just recently learned that there is a mood among critics that Jennifer Lopez should be – and perhaps will be – nominated for an Oscar in Best Supporting Actress for Hustlers. Which would be amazing, honestly. The point is that we’ll probably be talking about Hustlers for months.

For this TIFF premiere, Jennifer understandably went all-out. She wore a canary yellow Maison Yeya gown which would make most women look like Deconstructed Big Bird. But on J.Lo, the dress looks amazing. And yes, Alex Rodriguez was there to support her.

Constance Wu in Georges Hobeika. This looks super-cheap, right? Am I just imagining that because I’m over her?

Lili Reinhart wore Rodarte. Those shoulder flowers are… something. She’s beautiful, but the dress is A LOT.

Keke Palmer wore Roberto Cavalli and she looked great too. I don’t have an ID on Julia Stiles’ dress.

    J lo looks really really good for 50. The work she’s done on her face is not over the top, and I like the blonder hair and long Bob. Nice!

    • Kateeeee says:

      J Lo looks good for any age! Shes got me by 15 years and I would still kill to look like her! 😂

      She is always entertaining so I hope she does get an Oscar nom.

    • SURFCHICK says:

      Has she had work done? Maybe Botox but plastic surgery, really? I never heard that about her.

  2. Eliza says:

    Jennifer’s dress looks like it was made on Project Runway’s unconventional material challenge week. Mesh netting and seatbelts.

    • damejudi says:

      Absolutely what I was thinking, too!

      JLo still looks amazing, regardless of the “challenge-ing” garment!

    • Esmom says:

      Ha, I thought of that too but she makes it work. She looks completely amazing from head to toe. She would, however, look even better if she lost the man-sized accessory on her arm. Just saying.

  3. Seraphina says:

    She looks great but the dress made me think of Big Bird from Sesame Street.

  4. Becks1 says:

    J lo looks great bc she’s JLo. That dress is horrible though.

    • Turtledove says:

      This. She is ridiculously gorgeous, full stop. But that dress is a mess. She “pulls it off” only because her beauty distracts from the horror of the dress.

  5. Lenn says:

    I am so excited for this movie. I will come out and admit it, I love looking at J-lo in movies. She’s just captivating, whether in a good or bad movie.

  6. Alexandria says:

    Beautiful beautiful lady, not so great dress. But I fully expect J Lo to be over the top for the premieres!

  7. Lucy2 says:

    Keke and Julia look good. I don’t like any of the other dresses. JLo’s is a travesty.

    • AnnaKist says:

      Phew. So glad I’m not alone. Hers and Constance Wu’s frocks look as if they’ve been hurriedly run up for Year 10’s annual presentation of High School Musical – by the Year 8s. The only good thing is that Miss Wu’s toes are actually encased in her shoes. I detest that toe overhang thing. It’s unbecoming and can really spoil a nice “look”, not to mention the discomfort.

    • Elisa says:

      +1, they both look great! the others, not so much…

  8. Slowsnow says:

    J.Lo’s dress is made of unconventional wrapping paper for macarrons.
    However, the lady is stunning.

    Fun story: my kids were watching videoclips on some music channel and one of J.Lo’s clips came on. My husband looked, and asked “is this what J.Lo looks like now?!” I had to wipe the drool out of his mouth.

    She is so gorgeous. I dare say she would even be better without the “give face” attitude but she seems to love it so give it away J.Lo! You rock.

  9. DS9 says:

    Julia’s dress doesn’t need a label. It’s that basic.

    And Constance’s dress does look cheap or maybe it’s just the shoe that brings it down

  10. Spicecake38 says:

    The dress is ugly,but she’s so gorgeous.I will see this movie,because it just seems like it will be really good.

    I’m someone who is all about understated beauty and fashion,it’s what works for me as I get older so I guess that is something I would love to see Jlo do,like show herself off in a basic black dress or jumpsuit.I watched her in some cheesy movie where she played a school teacher and she looked phenomenal in turtleneck sweaters and plaid skirts…She just pulls of anything well.
    They really do make a nice looking couple.Wish them the best.

  11. Div says:

    JLo looks fantastic, but she can make anything work. Lili…yikes.

  12. Suzieq359 says:

    You know Constance Wu is jealous over all the JLo attention since she is the movie’s lead. And now they are strongly talking Oscar and JLo is doing a lot of seemingly Oscar campaigning. Luckily someone is keeping Constance off social so she can’t reveal her true feelings lol.

  13. Naddie says:

    Wtf, everyone is looking the same now! I thought it was a Kardashian at first sight.
    That was the point of Zoe Kravitz.

  14. ChillyWilly says:

    I don’t mind JLo’s dress but I really hate her shoes. Pointy open toes? Not cute. But she is very, very cute. I like her hair shorter and he skin is so pretty.

  15. Chaine says:

    That color is dreadful on her.

  16. JennyJenny says:

    I really don’t care for her dress, but I love her clutch!

    How perfect and on theme for this film ~

  17. Jb says:

    So much fug on the red carpet. Yikes

  18. FHMom says:

    I don’t like any of the dresses. Not one.

  19. Isa says:

    I don’t like the dress but JLo blows me away. She works so hard and still looks so young. And it’s not just her face and having work done, although maybe it is, but her skin looks amazing. Her hands look younger than mine. Her knees still looks amazing. Her stomach looks incredible even though she carried twins. She showed off her bruises on her legs after training for this film and all I could think was that mine wouldn’t heal and hers were probably gone within a week.

  20. Adrien says:

    Early reviews on twitter are praising Jlo and even Cardi. No mention of Constance’s performance. She’d be like Jlo and the rest of the cast were good, she’s part of “and others”. I’m still thinking of that Yashar Ali tweet may have done some damage to her reputation. We can’t seem to shake off that “ungrateful” issue (just like with Katherine Heigl) and it’s very, very mild compared to Scarjo’s shenanigans.

  21. Lisa says:

    I like what Keke and Julia are wearing. It would be something if J. Lo got an Oscar nom. The critics have been positive about the movie which is good.
