J.Lo’s Fashion Show
Jennifer Lopez unveils Sweetface, her high-end clothing line, to cap New York City’s Fall Fashion Week
“It’s sexy street glamor,” says Jennifer Lopez (arriving at the Bryant Park tents on Feb. 11 with husband Marc Anthony) of her collection.
Naomi Campbell tips an oversize, floppy mink hat with a silk chiffon jumpsuit and fox fur collar.
Fly button: These low riders boast a $2 million 16.67-carat diamond closure.
This model’s in the mink with a fur hat, boots and shorts. Yes, mink shorts.
“Two hours ago it hit me that this was happening. I had to breathe, but now I feel good,” says Lopez, helping a model backstage, where a sign read, “Be super sexy! Have fun! Work it!”
It’s easy to chill but not freeze in this bleached silver-fox coat, beaded top and corduroy pants.
For the finale, a triumphant Lopez greets the audience in a Sweetface sweater and jeans and 4-in. Christian Louboutin heels. The colorful runway had been sprinkled with 200 lbs. of Swarovski crystals, which helps to explain how the show’s tab topped $2 million.
