When eight “real” models showed up at a New York City studio for an
O, The Oprah Magazine
photo shoot, they had no idea what was in store. But as it turned out, creative director Adam Glassman had arranged a styling session and photo shoot with none other than Jennifer Lopez, featuring clothes from her upcoming collection for Kohl’s.

O is often the go-to magazine for lines that want to do an exclusive first look,” Glassman tells PEOPLE. “It’s so great to have her teach women how to get a kind of everyday glamour like hers.” Lopez served as a guest fashion editor on the shoot, which appears in the magazine’s September issue, choosing outfits and accessories for all eight women.

“Jennifer is very approachable right from the start, so they got comfortable with her right away,” Glassman says. And for Lopez, newly single, that’s important. “I’m a mom,” she tells O. “I work. I want comfort. But I want to feel sexy and modern. I think most women want the same things.”

Lopez, who also wears looks from her Kohl’s collection in the spread, gave all of the models tips on posing for the camera, and even directed hair and makeup. And though she’s a true style icon, she was humbled by the praise she received from everyone on set that day.

“This is the fulfilling part,” she says. “To have women tell me, ‘This is so comfortable, it fits so well.'” But Glassman says it’s not surprising everyone loved her designs. “These clothes look fantastic … they really give the essence of what her style is about,” he shares. For more of Lopez’s shoot, pick up the September issue of O, The Oprah Magazine. And look for the star’s Kohl’s collection in stores this fall.
