Our favorite quotes from J.Lo b.lo…
GLAMOUR: Let’s talk about your style choices. Today your outfit is classic Nuyorican: hoop earrings, an armful of bangles and sexy white jeans.
JL: My own style influences have to do with where I grew up, in the Bronx—I was wearing this when I was 12 years old, and I still like to wear bangles and big hoops! I’m also influenced by all the places I’ve traveled since then: I’ve been to Hollywood and great fashion shows and seen the world. Now I have a different perspective, and I mix that up.
GLAMOUR: Who would you say are some of your style icons?
JL: I look to the women who epitomize old Hollywood glamour, like Rita Hayworth. She had a way of making sophisticated clothes look sexy without ever seeming sleazy or cheap.
GLAMOUR: So who is Marc’s favorite Jennifer, stylewise?
JL: He loves seeing me in a glamorous gown on the red carpet, but his favorite Jennifer is just the Puerto Rican girl from the Bronx, when my hair is kind of natural and curly and I have just a little bit of eyeliner on and big hoops and jeans.
GLAMOUR: What do you think is the sexiest thing about a woman?
JL: Confidence: It’s the difference between the girl with the perfect body in a one-piece bathing suit, pulling at it and thinking she’s not thin enough or doesn’t have big enough boobs—and the girl who people call a bit overweight, but meanwhile, she’s wearing a bikini and guys are saying, “God, she’s sexy.” It all has to do with how you feel about yourself—it’s about projecting the attitude, I’m OK with who I am.
