Jennifer Lopez in Valentino at the Spirit Awards: glamorous loser?

Jennifer Lopez arrives at the 2020 Film Independent Spirit Awards, held on the beach in Santa Monica...

On the plus side, my nemesis Laura Dern didn’t win the Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Actress. On the other hand, neither did Jennifer Lopez! That award went to The Farewell’s Zhao Shuzhen, who could not travel to the LA for Oscar weekend because of the Cononavirus. The way it ended up, Jennifer Lopez didn’t even get on stage at the Spirit Awards! Which is horrible – if you have J.Lo at your weird tent-awards show, put her on stage for something! Alas, it did not happen. Jennifer was all glammed out with no place to go other than her giant mansion and probably a million Oscar parties. Most people wear suits or simple boho looks for the Spirit Awards. Not J.Lo – she wore this great, glam Valentino look and she looked amazing. While she didn’t get on stage, she was front and center and there were tons of cutaways.

Emily Ratajkowski also wore Valentino, and it’s a cute little minidress. Her body remains crazy, but… that’s basically all she has, right?

Laura Dern also wore Valentino dress (with Tiffany & Co. jewelry) and never fear, she got on stage because Marriage Story won the Robert Altman Award for the ensemble. I loathe her dress!

    Three pics and three very different styles. Wow.

  2. chloe says:

    I love JLo’s look, but it seem’s to formal and glitzy for the Independents, Dern’s look is to frumpy and the design looks like wallpaper.

    • minx says:

      The front of Dern’s dress looks like a pair of hands holding her at her vagina. Very unfortunate pattern placement..

    • Chrissy says:

      Dern’s dress looks like something Mrs. Roper (Three’s Company) would have worn circa 1977.
      SMH! JLo always looks OTT IMO and so out of place at the Spirit Awards.

  3. Laura says:

    JLo looks amazing and I LOVE her hair! Laura Dern’s dress/accessories age her by like, 20 years.

    • Shirleygailgal says:

      oh, so funny! I love everything about JLo’s look EXCEPT her hair, which looks flat and lifeless to me ‘small’ even considering the glam and size of skirt….I love how different people see different things ….

      • Elisa says:

        Same, she is killing it in this outfit but her hair cheapens the whole look…

      • hunter says:

        JLo doesn’t have any extensions in – it’s an afternoon event.

        Her hair just looks small because we all just saw her wearing enough hair for a pack of lions at the superbowl.

  4. Gabby says:

    I love this look on JLo, wow! The look is both classic and glam to the nth degree.
    The other two are so awful, I hardly know what to say in one paragraph. That getup on your nemesis there is one of the most hideous things I’ve ever seen on a red carpet, fail, fail, fail! Hideous dress, hideous, pointy, shoes, bag is seemingly random.

  5. JRenee says:

    I like the outfit JLo is wearing, not so much the hair.
    I like Laura’s purse and boots, not the dress..

  6. FHMom says:

    JLo looks fabulous except for the hair.

  7. Bibliomommy96 says:

    Ok, lol, now I need to know why she’s your nemesis! I don’t open her posts, because she seems very vanilla, but now I’ll be in the archives for a few hours,

  8. Lena says:

    Imo This Is JLos best look in a long time. Too bad it’s totally inappropriate for the event. She just can’t stay away from the glitter and glitz for one night! Then again I don’t really like Emily whatshername or Laura’s looks even though they are what you’d wear for the Spirit awards

    • BeanieBean says:

      I think Emily’s shoulders & sleeves are too large considering the rest of the dress is body-con and short. And then there’s her perpetual vacant stare….

  9. Sorella says:

    I LOVE Jlo’s outfit!!! She looks gorgeous!!! Wrong event, bit too much for this award show though…just too dressy for a casual tent event!!!

    I feel fo her as I think she knows her chance for even future nominations are slim, she’s not offered the plum award bait roles and there are MANY more talented actresses in her age group. (Nicole, Charlize:, Renee, Sandra ect) so despite looking amazing, the roles aren’t aplenty for 45+ women. But everyone I know said Hustlers was so-so, lost them midway and that she was good but not Oscar nomination or Oscar win good and are ok with her non-nomination.

    • Scollins says:

      +1. She just isn’t that great of an actress although there’s been an insane publicity push for her, the money spent could feed an incredible amount of hungry kids. Hopefully once award season is over they’ll stop pushing her so hard. Same goes for Aniston.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      She’s got a really meaty role about a drug lord coming up, I’m sure she’s going to get awards for it.

  10. minx says:

    Hoo boy, Laura Dern’s dress—my eyes! And she’s carrying a little red toolbox.

    • lemonylips says:

      this was the first time I saw Laura Dern and thought – @Kaiser, you now have a look that you can burn and not one person would mind you going after Dern. Why did you hold back??? It’s so bad. I cringed.

    • Liz version 700 says:

      The toolbox? I saw it and had flashes of her carrying a lunchbox of snacks to the awards? So weird!?!

    • Gabby says:

      Lol, perfect description. The entire look is so bad, words failed me.

  11. YaGotMe says:

    I honestly tried to rewatch Hustlers to see what I missed that made this performance so award worthy. I didn’t make it through a second time. I love J Lo for a multitude of reasons, but I maintain this wasn’t an Oscar worthy role and she wasn’t even the best actress in the film. I do hope it opens more doors for her though.

    • Anne says:

      My thoughts exactly. I love her and was amazing in the stripping scene, but to get an award for a stripping scene? Not so much, really.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      I’ve seen it 4 times and I enjoyed it every time so different strokes…

  12. Anne says:

    I love J.Lo. and she was good in Hustlers, but to be honest, I expected more. I don’t know why, but I think that the movie would actually work better as a comedy. And she basically played a less sophisticated version of herself and I think she had better roles. For example, I really liked her in Wedding Planner. I think she was great, and I love that movie.
    I hope she gets more quality work in the future, honestly.
    On the other hand, she KILLED IT at Super Bowl, and I am actually amazed how and when and where she finds the energy and organize herself to do all this.

  13. Kelly says:

    I’m very happy for Zhao Shuzhen. She was incredible in The Farewell.

  14. Valiantly Varnished says:

    J.Lo was over-dressed and Emily was under-dressed. As usual.

    • minx says:

      WAY overdressed, that’s an Oscar dress not an ISA dress. It’s like she went with more casual hair hoping it would dress down the look, but it doesn’t.

  15. Louise says:

    J-ho better enjoy this because it’s never going to happen again.

  16. ennie says:

    LAura dern is 2 years older than JLo, but dressed like an 80 year old. I love comfy clothing, but no.

  17. Kate says:

    Not great or glam. Really ugly.

  18. Naddie says:

    Her hair is looking like mine when i iron it, and this is not good. I like both parts of her dress, but together they didnt work.
    There’s something interesting about Laura’s choice, i think its the match of red shoes and purse with the green in her dress.
    Emily is emilying.

  19. Bella says:

    I love Jlo
    s outfit, but not her hair. Laura must be wearing the ugliest dress ever!
