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!

Yes she looks great, But she isn’t 9months, if she is those are some very small babies! Most celebs opt to have an ELECTIVE c-section at 8 months to reduce stretch marks, I just hope she’s putting her children before her vanity :)

I can understand wanting to look your best even if your pregnant but there are other alternatives than sweats. A lot of designers make great pregnancy clothes and with the bank account she has she wouldn’t have a problem getting the best. I think the dress makes her look as if she is trying not to look pregnant , she should embrace her pregnant belly and should have worn something more flattering. The shoes are really bad too. She looks uncomfortable.

I agree with jackie the shoes and dress are pretty bad. But other than this dress Jennifer has looked amazing throughout her pregnancy.

She’s so beautiful.I’m so happy that she has found the man she’s meant to be with and is being blessed with babies.

The dress is not very flatering but for those of you who are saying she looks too small (and maybe she is). I can tell you from someone who has had triplets, that looking at her straight on is way different than a belly side profile (and this is much closer to straight on.) I had such a torpedo belly but straight on or from the back I didn’t look nearly as “full” as I was.

Jennifer always looks amazing. Amazing is her middle name! Congrats on the twins!

I know it is important to feel good about oneself during pregnancy and I do wish her a beautiful pregnancy and delivery. However, when I saw this picture my heart dropped as I saw those high heels. It is known that high heels throw off the natural alignment of the spine, causing sever discomfort. I just think it is so very sad to choose vanity over the obvious safety and comfort during one’s pregnancy…that is very dangerous. Unbelievable.

If she’s 9 mos. pregnant then I highly doubt she’s carrying twins. She’s way too small and twins usually don’t go to full term!

Nicole on

She looks like she’s just wearing a loose dress. She doesn’t look big at all. She doesn’t look 9 months pregnant at all. I had a friend, who was very petite and went into labor at just over 6 months along and she was about the same size. When I get pregnant even with just one baby, I will be happy if I look half as good as she does.

Livvie on

Jennifer looks amazing, especially if it’s twins (I’ve been there), but one thing that irks me is her father trying to say his side of the family has twins. Twins are genetically from the mom’s side, so his side has no bearing on her heredity. If Jen had IVF, there is no shame in that and she should be more honest about it. Cindy Margolis just had an interview in People about this…she said there are many celebs who have done IVF and won’t admit to it, and it shouldn’t be that way.
