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!

EW. THe dress is awful. She looks like she rolled outa bed.

She looks so amazing. She is even fashionable when pregnant. I wish her the best.

that dress is horrible and the shoes are worse …..makes her knees look like some knot on a tree!

Reese on

She looked far bigger couple of weeks ago at her baby shower. Has she had the babies and is she trying to fake out the paparazzi?

How do we know that J-Lo is nine months pregnant? To my knowledge, she has never said when she is due, and neither has her rep or anyone else close to her (her parents, Mark, etc.). Another poster mentioned that she looks small to be nine months pregnant with twins. Perhaps that’s because she’s really eight months pregnant, or even just seven months pregnant.

Wow, Rachel. You’re a beyotch!

Tina on

I’ve had two sets of twins and it looks like her babies are going to come out very small perhaps unhealthy.

I think it stupid to put yourself at risk by wearing high heels as much as she does when she is out. Also, her fashion for her pregnancy I think has been god awful. I have yet to see her in nice outfit that has complimented her pregnancy and those dresses, my god she has one in every color.


I really DON’T like that dress….. but heres the odd thig, it almost looks like she already gave birth. It’s how you look after the 1st week, espesially after carry twins. She dosn’t look right for a nine month mom to be.

SunSun on

she looks wonderful as usual…i’ll be ecstatic if i look half as good as her when i get that pregnant
