Let’s get some shoes!
Jennifer Lopez literally has 20 projects going on at any given moment, and fall 2016 is no exception. The super star is a resident performer in Las Vegas, is filming the second season of NBC cop drama Shades of Blue, will also serve as a judge and executive producer on a new competition series, World of Dance, has a Spanish album on the way and this week announced the launch of a new show collection with designer Giuseppe Zanotti.
In addition to a stunning photoshoot for Harper’s Bazaar, Lopez opens up about her love of fashion.
“If you hear a song from a certain time and you’re like, ‘Oh, my God!,’ it takes you back to that period in your life,” she explains. “I do the same thing with my closet. I walk in and I see a hat or a pair of shoes or a coat, and I go, ‘Wow! I remember I was wearing that the day this happened, or I was walking down the street; or I heard this or my mom said that, or my boyfriend …’ You know what I mean? ‘And I was dating so-and-so …'”
She adds: “I love hoops, jeans, boots, and sparkle,” she says. “If you look back to my first red-carpet days, it’s short, sparkly Versace dresses. I know everybody knows the green jungle dress, but I’m more about Versace’s chain mail and Swarovski crystal dresses, which I’ve been doing since back then.”
Lopez also insists she’s sending Rihanna a pair of boots after the ANTi singer sent Lopez one of the first pairs of thigh-high boots from her collaboration with Manolo Blahnik, which JLo wore in her “Ain’t Your Mama” music video.
“Oh, my gosh, [Rihanna] is first on my list,” she said. “It’s funny because I actually had that in my mind. I was like, ‘She sent me those boots, and the minute my Giuseppes come out I’m sending her a pair.'”
But more importantly… can people dance in them? “I can.”
Something we can all relate to.
