Jennifer Lopez in Richard Quinn at the Palm Springs film festival: gorgeous?

2020 Palm Springs International Film Festival Gala - Arrivals

Every year, I forget that the Palm Springs International Film Festival is a thing. Every year, the PSIFF starts a few days before the Golden Globes, and the festival serves as one of the biggest pushes for Oscar hopefuls – it’s an easy journey from LA to Palm Springs, and most celebrities seem to like spending a few days in the desert, where they attend screenings, Q&A sessions and receive “awards.” Last night was the opening ceremony for the PSIFF and as always, it was well-attended by people who are already in the area for this weekend’s Golden Globes.

Jennifer Lopez is, I hope, a sure thing for Best Supporting Actress across the board for Hustlers. She’s brilliant in it and I’m loving her Oscar campaign too – I suspect she might have hired an Oscar-campaign consultant? Anyway, she had the biggest “look” of the opening night gala, this Richard Quinn floral number with a long-ass train. It’s very girly and Audrey Hepburn-esque. Her date was Alex Rodriguez, who will probably attend every event with her this season, right?

You know what surprises me a little? A few years ago, Joaquin Phoenix pitched a fit about having to participate in an Oscar campaign, but he hasn’t said one word about campaigning for Joker. He even brought his mom to Palm Springs.

Charlize Theron in Christian Dior. I thought this was boring as hell until I saw the netting. The netting makes this very good!

Greta Gerwig in Gucci – her fashion has been so bad so far. This is awful. It makes her look like she has a “hairy chest.” BIB TASSELS.

Renee Zellweger in Jason Wu. I don’t hate this at all? She looks good.

Laura Dern in Erdem. My Nemesis loves a cheap-looking floral.

Salma Hayek in black, maybe Gucci? It’s okay. It could have veered too much towards goth/somber, but she pulls it off.

    Jen looks lovely as does Charlize. That’s all.

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      LOVE JLo’s dress, but it needed to fit better in the bosom. It either needs to be yanked up, or better tailored there so there isn’t a drape/crease by her armpits. Otherwise, stunning. Even her makeup is flawless, and for once, she’s not doing the mouth-breathing O thing!

      Same for Charlize. The netting needs to be better fitted so it doesn’t fall in creases. Otherwise, gorgeous.

      Laura Dern… I like the coat. Otherwise, tragic for such a beautiful woman.

      Selma’s diamond bow at the neck ruins it for me. Too cutesy. Too flouncy as well. She’s a sexy woman and this is too twee for her IMO.

      I’m not loving Renée’s… perhaps without all that tulle on the shoulder? She looks great in jumpsuits though.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I agree, the fit is off on Jen’s dress at the top. It kind of pushes her down and looks uncomfortable.

  2. Becks1 says:

    JLo looks really good. This may be one of my favorite looks of hers. Her makeup seems a bit lighter than is her usual for these events, and that dress is gorgeous.

    I also really like Renee. That’s something fun and different.

    • Lady D says:

      Same, J Lo and Renee look amazing. I miss the Charlize that had more hair. She seemed much prettier to me with more length. Laura and Selma’s looks are bad, really bad. Usually Selma looks sultry and sexy, I don’t think she pulled it off in this dress.

  3. Lucy says:

    I so want her to get that Oscar!! Love Charlize’s dress and Joaquin looks good. Also, I don’t have a problem with Laura but I love that you call her your Nemesis. It kinda sounds like, I don’t like this bitch but I respect her. Lol.

  4. Caitlin says:

    Charlize has aged a lot the last few years and it’s refreshing to she she’s not botoxing the hell out of her face. JLo looks great, everything is immaculately put together, Laura is not a fashion girl at all… and what’s this nemesis talk? Laura Dern is a national treasure. Salma looks boring as usual with her.

  5. Rachel says:

    I watched Hustler with JLo…..she does not deserve any prize. Movie over rated and so was JLo in this movie. I could barely finish movie.

    • Becks1 says:

      Yeah, I know the movie is beloved on here, but I finally watched it a week or two ago and found it surprisingly boring. JLo wasn’t bad but I never forgot that she was Jennifer Lopez, you know? I didn’t hate it, it was fine, but I was surprised after all the praise and hype around it.

      • lobstah says:

        Add me to that list – I was so disappointed by Hustlers! After all the hype, I told my husband we just HAD to see it, but then I just kept waiting for something big to happen, or some major twist to occur.

        But, JLo did look fantastic in it.

      • pollyv says:

        I also found it a little boring and found myself looking at Twitter a few times.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Agreed. Jennifer is always playing a version of herself. Sometimes that is fun, but I don’t think that makes her a great actress.

      • wtf says:

        Agreed. I thought the movie was mediocre. Not terrible, but not Oscar worthy. Not unless they are giving Oscars for the most banging body, because if they are then she deserves all the awards. I’m convinced that she and Pharrel and Adam Levine have made some kind of deal with the devil so they won’t age.

    • Flamingo says:

      Agreed, that wasn’t an Oscar worthy performance. They might give her a nomination because she has been working her butt off in the industry for decades, but I don’t think this is the performance she should win for.

    • lucy2 says:

      I thought the movie was OK, JLO was very good in it and may get a nomination, but I’d be really surprised if she won.

    • BellaBella says:

      Agree completely. Movie was mediocre. Jennifer was no revelation. Constance was miscast.

  6. Diana says:

    Don’t kill me… I hate the floral print on JLo’s dress. Also the length is awkward. Something nice- her makeup and hair is flawless.

    Renee’s look is fun and cute! My favorite of the bunch.

  7. Flamingo says:

    JLo looks very pretty and that dress is giving me major 1950’s vibes. Also, I’ve noticed that she is smiling a lot more on red carpets instead of doing her old sexy face that she used to do all the time.

  9. Lisa says:

    Renee looks great. I love the Jason Wu.

  10. YaGotMe says:

    That mullet dress is fug, on anyone else we would call it an 80s revenge, Laura Ashley bridesmaid gown complete with pepto pink shoes.
    I do like the more natural make up and she looks very fresh.

    I too thought Hustlers was just ok, entertaining and fun but it was J-lo being J-lo to me, no mesmerizing performance just her being her awesome self.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      I don’t get 80’s Laura Ashley at all from that dress. It’s 60’s Palm Springs.

      • YaGotMe says:

        I might be speaking from past trauma, I’ve had to wear that silhouette way too many times, usually in a tragic floral with pastel shoes. 😂😂😂

  11. ChillyWilly says:

    “Laura Dern in Erdem. My Nemesis loves a cheap-looking floral” 😂
    LOL Kaiser, I personally love LD but your disdain for her always amuses the hell out of me!
    JLo looks very pretty in this dress. Very Palms Springs colors.

  12. Soupie says:

    I’ve noticed recently that really prominent bodice darts have made a comeback, in this instance JLo’s dress, though this example isn’t the worst by far. I hated them in the 60’s and wonder why those suckers are back?! So distracting! 😬😂

    Other than that, the dress is beautiful. Love Renee’s look. JLo’s stripper can’t compete with Renee’s Judy. And the netting on Charlize’s outfit is genius.

    • SummerSky says:

      JLo would be in the Best Supporting category, Renee in Best Actress so they wouldn’t be competing

  13. Chaine says:

    JLo looks fab from a distance but close up I don’t like how the fabric is all bunched downward at the bust, in the one pic she has that worried face look of “I hope my strapless dress doesn’t inch too low.”

  14. Eleonor says:

    I don’t like floral prints…it always reminds me of a couch…
    The best dressed to me is Renee Zellweger.
    The other ones it’s a huge nope.

  15. Nikki* says:

    Charlize is STUNNING and could have headlined the post, and Renee Z. looks pretty great, when usually I don’t like her fashion. I disagree about Salma Hayek’s dress being attractive: a schoolmarm bow at the neck, puffy sheer sleeves gathered at the end, and a diagnal bias hem w/ruffle is too many looks at once, none good together. J-Lo is beautiful, though the print is a tad large. Another woman might look like an 80’s couch in it, but she has such magnetism, and the styling and fit are really lovely.

  16. Trish-a says:

    Jennifer looks so uncomfortable. She’s hunched over like TQ.
    RZ for the win in this one.

  17. JanetFerber says:

    Of all the looks, Charlize Theron kills it. Jennifer looks okay, but it’s not really a dress that accentuates her killer bod. Her arms are okay, but not toned the way I thought her whole body would be. The dress is beautiful. I love Greta Gerwig no matter what she wears. Joaquin looks fat and grubby and he doesn’t give a shit what he wears. The sneakers are awful.

  18. MellyMel says:

    Charlize looks so cool in this outfit!

  19. pollyv says:

    I don’t like that dress on JLo. It is unflattering and makes her look like she’s gained weight. It’s a dress for a much taller waif. Charlize and Renee look great. I don’t care what Laura wears, I love her.

  20. lucy2 says:

    Charlize for the win. Wow.

    I don’t hate JLo’s dress, but I’m not a big fan of huge florals, and from the front view, it’s not fit very well in the bust and the mullet-ness makes her look a bit short. But the side view with the big train is dramatic and pretty.

  21. Rhys says:

    JLo is not very tall and that dress length makes her look stumpy. Not a fan.

  22. Vizia says:

    I want the earrings. That is all.

  23. Bella A A says:

    JLo, Charlize, and Renee look absolutely gorgeous!

  24. DiegoInSF says:

    What a goddess. I’ll riot if she doesn’t win all the awards. She was exquisite in Hustlers!

    • SummerSky says:

      I agree – I thought JoLo was terrific in Hustlers. I don’t see her playing herself in that film. Apart from the fact that she and her character are sexy and hardworking, I actually think they are very different people.

  25. A says:

    JLo’s dress would have looked better if they had used some other fabric. This one looks cheap. I like Charlize’s netting but rest of the outfit looks boring. Greta looks horrible and Salma dressed up like she didn’t want to be there.

  26. Sorella says:

    First time i see Jlo in something that is not flattering on her body. Does not suit het at all. Everyone i know says her performance in Hustlers not Oscar worthy and def not a win and that it’s been overhyped and one never forgets it’s Jlo.

  27. Charfromdarock says:

    I hate JLo’s dress. It looks so old fashioned… I guess she’s trying to appeal to the old white Oscar voting men in Palm Springs.

    I love Dern’s coat!

  28. Normades says:

    Something is definitely going wrong in that dress because jlo usually looks so confident and has great posture. Here she looks hunched over and stressed out.

    Charlize FTW.

    • Naddie says:

      As much as I applaud the change of wardrobe, this got me too: she looks hunched and tired. Never bad, just not her confident usual.

  29. JanetDR says:

    I am oddly happy that Renee looks like herself again!

  30. Birdie says:

    JLo is freaking 50! How does she do it?! Lots of other people do fillers and all but never look this GOOD and young!

  31. MsIam says:

    Hate JLo’s dress. It reminds of a comforter. Like Charlize’s outfit the best, it’s unexpected with the netting. The rest? Hmm…ok.
