J. Lo's Maternity-Wear Philosophy: Glam Gowns, No Sweats!

With all the stars making the rounds for N.Y.C. Fashion Week, the fashion flock is getting even more jaded than usual. But despite the dazzling gowns at Marchesa, all eyes were definitely on nine-months-pregnant (with twins!) Jennifer Lopez, looking as gorgeous as any of the models in her own silky teal Marchesa dress that highlighted off her growing belly. Sure, she looks fantastic, but how’s pregnancy really treating her? “I’m feeling good,” the almost-due singer tells PEOPLE of her decision to check out the new collection along with husband Marc Anthony. “I haven’t gone out a lot for the past few months”, she admits, “but Marchesa has been incredibly good to me. They are just amazing!” And while most moms-to-be stick to comfort wear, the always-glam Jennifer says sweats are not an option. “People make fun of me because when I do have them over to my house I do have a dress on,” she laughs. “I don’t like the way the sweats look with the extra weight. I like to feel good about myself even at home.” And while the singer won’t be able to wear any of Marchesa’s red carpet confections anytime soon, she does have her eye on a few special looks. But, Lopez admits “Right now the best thing I can do for myself, for my body is to keep resting which is not easy for me. I like keeping busy and it is very hard because if they say ‘be off your feet for four hours a day’, I’m like ‘oh, God!’ It’s hard.” If she looks this good at nine months, we can’t wait to see her back in action!

I agree the dress looks horrible as do the shoes….Gwen Stefani as rocked the pregnancy/look fashion the best!!

I think J-LO looks gorgeous. Right, she doesn’t even look like she’s having twins. Exsquisite and beautiful.

Wow…J. Lo looks “Soon-to-be Mommy” pretty. But other than that NO…. She doing too much. Especially to be pregnant with twins, she should not have on those stilettos. And yes I can tell like most “mommies to be” there is a boy baby in the oven because her nose spread. She looks uncomfortable though, but she is still a pretty woman. Its going to be amazing to see her bounce back in shape.

I carried my twins to only 31 1/2 weeks and I was bigger than her (I’m 5’6″). Maybe she’s taller and it’s spread out or something but she looks way too small to be “almost due” with twins.

Dress: not flattering. The shoes do absolutely nothing to elongate her legs. She could do waaaaaay better. She actually looks sloppy!

J-Lo looks good for somebody who’s about to have twins! You go girl!

Pengy on

I agree with others–she looks really small to be 9 pregnant with twins!

it,s normal for a pregnant woman to put on weight,but in J-LO,S case she has been able to control that despite the fact that she is expecting a set of twins,she is a role model to other pregnant women,she looks perfectly cute in her blue gown and and beautiful shoes,no one should hate on her,i think they are only being jealous of her.

The dress does nothing for her.
