Classic Girl Crush: J.Lo edition

Hola! Let’s talk about Jennifer Lopez for a minute. Girlfriend is 42, that’s FORTY TWO years old. Wow.


My girl crush on Jenny from the Block probably started around 2000 when she started releasing (in my opinion) all the classics, ‘I’m Real’, ‘If You Had My Love’, ‘Let’s Get Loud’ and not forgetting ‘Love Don’t Cost a Thing’ – the video for which, as if you needed refreshing, featured J.Lo strip off all her finery and end up in just her FINE-ry on the beach. It also had that sweet dance breakdown near the end. I was in love.

Fast forward to ‘Jenny From the Block’ i.e the Bennifer days. I spent all my time running round in a string vest, cropped velour sweatpants, jaunty caps, frosted make-up and most worryingly high-heeled cat boots. I wish I had a photo to show you I truly do. ‘All I Have’ is still my karaoke go to. Rap and all.


I liked to think I looked a little something like this, I probably looked more like a horrific accident in a Claire’s  Accessories.

 Fast, fast forward to recent times (we don’t talk of the Marc Antony wilderness years) and as documented above, J.Lo has never looked more incredible. I don’t bandy the word goddess around easily but…you don’t get to be the legs of Venus for nothing, amirite?  This final set of pictures, I feel, sum up what Jennifer Lopes IS, what she means to me and what she does best. It’s sparkly, it’s silky, it’s short, it’s not for the shy and retiring. It is LA LOPEZ.


Tell me your favourite J.Lo look in the comments! Besos.
