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 shocked at how critical everyone is of this beautiful woman. Nine mos. pregnant and everyone is griping about this and that. Has anyone out there been pregnant? The last part is the hardest physically. Leave her alone. Go pick on that freak show Britney Spears-who deserves it!

I could only hope to look so good being 9 months pregnant with TWINS!!!! She looks amazing-Keep it up J Lo….

When I was pregnant with twins, I was told by my doctors to have total bed rest the last 2 months of the pregnancy because multiples are almost always too early at birth. I could barely get out of a chair without help and walking was so uncomfortable. I don’t know how J. Lo does it…in high heels no less! She’d do well by her doctor’s orders by getting off her feet and resting as much as possible!

I too am happy for Jennifer. Being a Mother is very rewarding, and I think every Woman who has the desire should try it at least once! But, most readers are correct. Why in the world would she risk hers and her baby/ies life by wearing those very High heels? Is she that insecure with her looks now? She shouldn’t be. She is beautiful. You can be fashionable and pregnant. But really..what’s more important? It’s okay to maybe wear 2″ or 1 1/2″ heels when going out, but to wear those shoes, it doesn’t go well with outfit either. Her body looks twisted, with the angle that she took the picture, her babies are still high, but she still might deliver early. Best of luck, love, and peace to her and her family.

Im sorry but I had twins 10 months ago and there was NO WAY I was wearing high heals at nine months pregnant. I couldnt even stand up half the time because of the weight of my babies.
Are we sure shes nine months and having twins??!!??

I do like the dress though, very pretty

Sally on

She’s no Gwen that’s for sure, sorry but she looks sloppy from head to toe.

meghan on

I love the color of the dress and the dress itself and she looks fab .

Myrna on

She is gorgeous, no matter what!!!

I had a chance to meet J-lo and Marc backstage their concert. I always liked J-lo but when I met her she was very Rude and so not the jenny from the block. However, Marc is the nicest and most geniune person. I really hope motherhood will teach J-lo kindness.

Jenny on

you all must not have seen her in the other dress she wore while at Fashion Week its a brown one, and in the pic is her and her hubby and she looks HUGE(for all you saying she looks small) trust me you can tell its twins!! this dress hides it really well, i think she looks GREAT for 9 months!
