In recent celebrity fashion news, Jennifer Lopez knocks it out of the park once again. The red-hot singer wore a skin-tight dress by Gianfranco Ferré, ultra-sexy black platform pumps and a clutch purse by Etro for a benefit concert at NYC’s Apollo theatre recently. Notice how she kept the fashion accessories simple and let the dress be the star. That’s the best way to do gilded creations like this dress.
Lopez and husband Marc Anthony were recipients of the Ruby Dee & Ossie Davis Arts and Humanitarian Award at a ceremony that also honored the work of Aretha Franklin and the late Michael Jackson, both of whom were inducted into the Apollo Hall of Fame.
With her hair worn in long loose waves, and make-up emphasizing her eyes, Lopez made the perfect counterpoint with toned down lips and somehow managed to look both smashingly sexy and slightly demure at the same time – a sort of hybrid of a young Sophia Loren and Brigitte Bardot as she looked in Masculin, Féminin. Clearly marriage and motherhood have only made a positive impact on Lopez’s look!
Gianfranco Ferré, from the Italian city of Legano, is one of those fashion designers who knows how to skillfully mix tasteful, classic, and drop-dead gorgeous. Like another master of style named Tom Ford, Ferré studied architecture. He started his fashion empire making belts and jewelry, and pretty soon he was working with giants like Karl Lagerfeld. Extravagent fabrics, and extravagant colors like gold are prominent in his work, and both are perfectly showcased in J Lo’s dress at the Apollo event.
Do her hair and makeup signal a slight shift away from the over-glammed look that has dominated for so long? Well, she’s always been a maker of celebrity fashion trends, so you never know. At any rate, the non-trout lips in a blushy neutral are a refreshing change, and she’s never looked better.
