Jennifer Lopez Goes Retro in El Cantante

The consummate fashionista in her real life, Jennifer Lopez relished the chance to wear tons of vintage ’70s and ’80 fashion playing Pucchi, the wife of legendary salsa singer Hector Lavoe in El Cantante. At last night’s Los Angeles premiere, the glammed-up actress told PEOPLE that “I loved it. I think I had about 50 changes in the movie. Sometimes we’d do five, six changes a day because we shot the movie in only 36 or 37 days. We just had a great time putting it all together.” To see all of J. Lo’s sultry costumes (and her on-screen chemistry with husband Marc Anthony), check out the movie which opens on Friday.

I can’t wait to see this move. Sounds like a great change of pace and I love salsa music. I don’t understand the language, but love to dance.

I love the look and Jennifer looks great, however, there is no way in the world I will view this movie. She is not a very good actress. More like blah.

I love Jennifer, and this sounds like a great movie. But in this day and age when we know how dangerous smoking is, is it REALLY necessary to promote it? I think there must have been some people back then who didn’t smoke.

i have to agree with princess just a bit, i do think that jennifer lopez is not a great actress, but who knows maybe she may just prove me wrong. so therefore i would love to go see the movie. but i thing about jennifer she can pull off any outfit or dress with her curves.
