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!

Like Erin said…

I don’t think that she’s 9 months… with twins.

Not true for a minute…She probably wants to let us believe that.

is it just me or does her belly look lumpy, not pregnant??

I too think she looks good, however, she’s a bit small for twins.

Kim on

J Lo is VERY small for carrying twins at 9 months in gestation. I was her size with 1 baby. I have a feeling her babies are small.

Ugly dress…ugly shoes….who cares? She is glowing and gorgeous and happy… and I am thrilled for her and Marc!

Sarah ..... on

Ya umm Halle Berry is the number 1 on pregnancy fashion…Jen doesn’t look that good in this dress…the white one she wore was better….

I don’t think she needs to be wearing stilletos at nin months…she needs to take care of herself and those babies…ya she does look kinda small for nine months…Lord help her I like her…she just needs to relax a lil…so she won’t hurt her self

I am happy for her, at this age to have twins. That dress on her looks awful, as i can see she needs lots of exercise to get back in shape. Congratulations J-Lo hope to see you back on screen.
