Jennifer Lopez may not have made it to N.Y.C. Fashion Week but that didn’t stop her from celebrating fashion this week! The diva turned up at the Beverly Hills launch of famed stylist Andrea Lieberman’s A.L.C. line for Barneys New York. With the Oscars just days away, talk inevitably turned to this year’s Academy Awards red carpet. For her part, Lieberman is ambivalent about the impact the economy will have on the Oscar’s glamour. “It’s hard to predict what people will wear,” the tastemaker tells WWD, “but I think the mood right now is a little more effortless. I think people just don’t want to look like they’re trying too hard.” Lopez, however, was adamant that she thinks the Oscars should continue to shine. “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with playing dress up right now,” she tells WWD. “Who wouldn’t want to wear borrowed dresses and borrowed jewelry?” But she is aware of the dilemma many stars find themselves in. “I think you can get criticized if you’re wearing borrowed dresses now because it’s borrowed, and I think you can get criticized for if it’s not because you bought it during the current economy,” she says. “So I say, do what makes you happy and wear what you want, because the only thing that really matters,” she jokes, “is if your mother calls you up the next days and says, ‘What were you wearing?'”

Why does everyone hate on her? She is gorgeous and she has great style. Sure, she has made a few bad choices, but doesn’t everyone? All she did was make a comment, damn! Let the girl talk, she isn’t hurting anybody!!!!

Does this say a lot about the academy awards or what? J.Lo, Katie Cruise, Jennifer Aniston…these 3 are nothing but “B” actresses, and yet they are all invited to this award show.
Please, this should be reserved for the “A” list only, and those that know how to really act. I don’t think making a ‘dog’ flick for little children at Christmas time makes you a “A” actress. Come on Academy wheres the ‘style, and class’ of this show’ and I’m not referring to what somebody wears. Who cares!
