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 am sorry, but I have seen Jen looking much much better. This dress is really awful reminding me a hotel uniform. And those shoes!!! They are neither pretty nor comfortable. Hope she won´t slip. She should think more of your babies´safety than her looks this time. Emma

She looks awful in this dress. But who cares she has the money and the glam to wear whatever at anytime. However she doesnt look 9 months preggo with twins no way. She needs to eat something.

I agree, she looks small… I was like that at 6 months pregnant, for one child … but she is beautiful and this dress too

Megan on

She is so tiny! She’ll be another celeb to have a rockin body very soon after the babies are born.

Erin, I carried healthy twins to 40 weeks and was told “but you’re so small” every step of the way. The way one looks in pregnancy has less to do with how well the babies are doing and more to do with genes.

As far as the fashion part…give the girl some credit. Month 9 of a twin pregnancy is uncomfortable, to say the least! :)

she’s pregnant with twins people…stop being so negative, she looks great!

Diva on

That girl should be at home resting…especially if she’s carrying twins.

Jean on

Wow~this is what I looked like at 6 months, and I was only carrying one! I don’t like the idea of heels on a pregnant person, but I guess, fashion has changed. She is a beautiful lady and it shows~best of luck to her!

If you are so familiar with twin pregancies, you would know that not all women gain the same weight. I was pregnant with twins and gained less pounds then someone pregnant with just one.
I’m sure Jennifer has the best medical care and her babies are doing great.
I hope you don’t make comments like this one in the office you work, you would get a lot of women worried.

I think she looks great…. She doesn’t even look big to be nine months
