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!

WOW! Nine months pregnant with Twins! I was Bigger than that with my first daughter at nine months…and that was one baby! She usually looks gorgeous but i dont like this dress either, it doesnt hang right…maybe thats why she doesnt look very big. maybe its just the dress…and those shoes are aweful….

I am 5’4″ and am Latina so I have the hips and butt – my normal size is 168 lbs and when I was pregnant with my twins (IVF) I gained a total of 25lbs. I ate a ton but didn’t do ANY junkfood and I was all baby – my babies were born at 38 weeks and 2 days. Their weights were 5 lbs 7 oz and 6 lbs 4 oz.

I think she looks wonderful – I don’t agree with the heels but as paparazzi are so fickle if she had worn something more casual they would criticize her for being dumpy frumpy.

I think the dress hides a lot as it’s baggy but I think she’s doing really well. What’s more is that I saw her in Orlando in November and she was about 4-5 months already so she is definitely due any time soon.

J Lo looks great and I can’t believe she’s pregnant with twins. Good for her! I can’t wait to see what she names the babies.

She is pregnant with twins she’s probably all baby though just leave her alone you dont sound happy for her just let her have her babies in peace i am very happy for her and the twins.

Until you’ve been pregnant with twins, you can’t judge. I only gained 35 pounds with my twins (and I am tall and naturally thin, thank God!), who were born 5 1/2 pounds when born at 38 weeks.

That said, I definitely agree with the comments she shouldn’t be wearing those heels…it’s dangerous for the babies and bad for her own back which is bearing the weight of the babies. I lived in flat sandals and flip flops the summer I delivered.

Her belly looks very small to be 9 months pregnant with twins. I too hope everything is alright with the babies. And she’s wearing HIGH heels at that stage of her pregnancy. Not good. I wish her the best.

Ummmmm…people are commenting about how “wide her face is” her knees etc. She’s pregnant and her body is changing. Women should know this. I guess sometimes we would rather hate than just be happy for someone. She looks great!

Valerie on

I think she is should stay away from the camera. She doesn’t seem like a genuine person and is a fake! I hope she ditches the sweet girl act and becomes a good mother.
