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?'”

Very nice.

What is she rambling about? borrowed – not borrowed – brain or no brain!

Why is Jennifer Lopez “dishing” oscar fashion advice? I’m not trying to be rude, but wouldn’t someone like Kate Winslet or another actress that has been nominated at some point be a better choice?

Why is she invited to the Oscars every year? Try to name five of her of last movies…crickets…

What is she talking about? Wouldn’t it help the bad economy if people like celebrities, who have money, buy stuff? The economy will only get worse if people who can afford things freak out and stop buying. That is what causes companies to cut jobs and go out of business.

Here’s an unborrowed line: “Jennifer Lopez is unpolished and should never actually speak.”

What gibberish she is babbling? Jennifer Lopez should be disqualified from any statements about red carpet clothing as she has shown up in some of the most god-awful outfits. What about the topless number that had to be camouflaged by a guaze scarf and caused the cameras to shoot her from the neck up. What qualifies her to talk about what people should wear to awards shows?

Casey on

Oh brother! Not the person you should have interviewed as her comments and opinions mean absolutely nothing to so many of us out here in the real world. Try again with someone else?
