If you were super-rich with multiple homes across the world, where would you have gone during this ghastly pandemic year? I would have opted for a beach house with close access to medical centers and grocery stores. Like, somewhere in the Hamptons, I guess. Jennifer Lopez did something different though – she seemed to spend most of the pandemic in either Miami or New York City. For months now, it feels like she’s been getting pap’d pretty regularly in NYC. She’s always wearing a mask, so there’s that.
Jennifer has a reason to be in New York these days though – she’s in rehearsals for her performance at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, which airs on ABC. That’s why she’s been photographed so much recently – paps have her studio space staked out, and they’re getting photos of her coming and going. Yesterday, she was seen in this ensemble – a white mask, white joggers, white sneakers, white fur and a white crocodile Hermes Birkin bag. This is one of the infamous Hermès Himalayan crocodile Birkin bags, which Vogue calls “the most expensive Birkin” in the world. The larger version, with white gold and diamonds on the hardware, retails for $432,000. It’s likely that Jennifer’s smaller version – which probably is NOT diamond-encrusted – likely retails for over $100K. So, you know, just a perfect little bag for when you’re dropping by a studio space for sweaty rehearsals.
What’s even funnier to me is that she paired her Nike socks with her Alexander McQueen oversized sneakers, which cost $540. All that with the Birkin and the fur. I love J.Lo, she’s a little bit loca, as Hilaria Baldwin would say.

Wow, all that money to look hilarious LOL
She looks hilarious; unfortunately, she is shameless. In a year where many are suffering, the cost of that bag, those sunglasses/sneakers/sweats/FUR jacket could have paid the rent, grocery and utility bills for hundreds of people. And, she’s carrying a reptile bag. I am so over her over-the-top conspicuous consumption.
Her purse is actually quite ugly. What a waste. The cost of that purse could help hungry and recently evicted Americans. To parade around with it is disgusting.
As Hillaria would say…🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
That’s what I am here to say. LOCA as Hilaria would say. Baw hahahah
Same. Kaiser, you can chill for the rest of the day. You’ve won. 🤣
your last sentence made me laugh!!!! hahahahahaha
JLo honestly looks like a million bucks. When Kim K does this, it looks obscene. When JLo does it, I think “man, I need to start pairing my YSL bag with those beige sweats I just got”.
She might not look obscene, but she still looks ridiculous.
Disgusting how she still wears the skin of tortured animals and reptiles. She is vile.
Agreed! How is it that celebs and rich people still think this is a fashion statement? It makes me feel sick.
If that is real fur she is a POS. There is also nothing cool or stylish about a bag made out of reptile leather or flaunting your wealth during a pandemic!
That’s what I came here to say! How are we still flaunting these awful things in 2020? Just no.
I agree – it’s disgusting. How can women like her – it’s not as if she’s a naive teenager – not be aware of the ethics of her :fashion” choices? Apart from the ethical considerations, she looks chav. Those bags are ugly, and hers is particularly ugly, regardless of its obscene price tag. .
This kind of conspicuous consumption is so gross to me – I know lots of people will disagree but thats ok.
I agree OriginalLala. A few items I can deal with but these pictures are way over done. It comes across as gaudy and in these days, with the world fighting a pandemic and economic problems world wide, it also seems tone deaf.
I also agree. So many of us are living close to the bone right now, this makes me feel a little sick.
Oh I totally agree. And the obvious flaunting of it, just gross.
Let them eat cake.
I agree too. There’s a difference between buying high quality items and living well, and just being ridiculous. Fur (yuck) with sweatpants and a $100k bag is ridiculous.
I agree. It’s so over the top, it reads like Liberace to me (or like Trump’s taste). Going overboard with luxury is gaudy and tacky.
It costs a lot of money to look this cheap.
Anyone who quotes Dolly is a friend of mine 😉
I honestly can not understand this trend of of bags. It is so disproportionate. Either you carry a large bag or a small bag, this size looks like it was put into a dryer and shrunk. And just think about all the money it costs.
Purses are cootie catchers. I leave my wallet in the car & put id/cc in pocket. There’s a new strain of covid- supposedly the vax can killit, but we just don’t fully know. I wear layers when possible & ditch them at the door IJS.
But! That bag is super ugly, Most of the crazy priced ones are.
I actually kind of dig the sweatpants. Everything else is… why?
I am probably one of the only people here that does not care for her. Sure she look good, sure she has a great work ethic, but I hate hr music and I really do not care for her acting, but most of her, her love for fur makes me sick. How can you consider yourself a descent human wearing a coats made of thousands of chinchillas or a fox? NO SHAME
Agree with everything you said. To me she’s like nails on a chalkboard, immensely irritating. And don’t get me started on the fur thing….it’s obscene.
it’s not just you – she has a good work ethic, but she certainly has questionable ethics in everything else
That’s kind of how I feel about her – I really respect what she has built, and how hard she works for all of it, but I’ve never been a big fan of her work (how she became a pop star is beyond me) and I don’t think I’d like her very much in person.
I’m with ya. I do not care for her at all. Personally, I do not like her music, and I don’t think she’s such a great singer.
And then there’s her Alex Rodriguez relationship, a gross liar, cheat and disrespectful to other players & teams during his baseball career. He’d have never admitted doping if he hadn’t been caught red handed.
These crazy displays of wealth right now are really grinding my gears.
The last sentence!! I’m SCREAMING!!!
I love fashion, but a handbag that costs as much as a (very nice) home is just outrageous to me, especially in a friggin’ pandemic.
Absolute ridiculousness from head to toe. Conspicuous though that she’s NOT wearing her engagement ring. She wears it even to work out at the gym. Hmmmmm
Fur? Really. And that bag is hideous. Jenny needs to tone it down and realize people are unemployed and broke. She should donate the money for that bag to help the Bronx, the place she said she’d never forget. *eyeroll
@ NUStateofMind, I agree!! The fur, the handbag 🤬 and the sheer matter of walking around in about 150k of “stuff” when people are starving and suffering homelessness, losing their homes even if their is a moratorium on evictions, and so many people starving and children that have no gifts, yet alone the tools to be enrolled for online learning. There are deep swaths of the country that don’t have internet access, yet alone a laptop to learn by. Native Americans, a great majority, don’t have running water, yet alone internet access. There are over 3 million Americans that don’t have running water. Imagine having to bring in tubs of water to bathe, wash hands, and cook! Sorry, I just hate that those who came from humble beginnings should have more awareness, but I guess she doesn’t.
You can have a lot of money, but that doesn’t make you charitable! Look at the ex-Bezos, Mackenzie that donated 150M to Black colleges, that don’t have the privilege that the upper Ivy League schools have, money!! She came from nothing and is giving her money away!!
I hate this argument, did you buy anything you didn’t need to merely survive? Go and donate it to someone destitute instead! How dare you enjoy things? At least, she is self-made and she’s not just the daughter of _____.
@diegoinsf right, and you make a great argument. Not.
This woman’s fame shows how much people give too much attention to shallow entertainment. Her songs are garbage, her acting is no better, her dance has no trademark.
I will never understand this type of conspicuous over consumption from certain rich people. Esp in a year like this.
Eat the rich.
Looks like Alex called it off (AGAIN)
So she dresses in white just to show him
With the way she’s holding it perfectly in frame to be photographed, do we really think she paid that much or was there some discounting for the value of her celebrity advertisement? Don’t really care how she spends her money, personally. Just think she should be taxed higher.
