When Jennifer Lopez first showed her longtime makeup artist Scott Barnes her sexy catsuit the day of her appearance on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, she asked him, “Do you think it’s too much?” But, there wasn’t much doubt she’d be wearing the daring look, designed by stylist Paula Bradley. “She said, ‘It looks cool, right?’ She was so excited. She said ‘I like it!’” Barnes explains,“She was having such a good time and it really showed. She has confidence about her body. She’s not hiding behind any insecurities.” And Barnes marvels at her incredible shape, considering she is the mother of twins! “She is 40 and she’s had two kids,” he says. “Her body looks better than ever. It was so hot!” Husband Marc Anthony also approved, according to Barnes. The catsuit however, wasn’t quite as naked as it appeared on TV. “It was nude with black mesh over it,” says Barnes. “She wasn’t that cold. It was like having a ski suit on underneath.” And her bodysuit wasn’t the only sexy thing Lopez was sporting — Barnes highlighted her eyes with smoky makeup including charcoal eyeliner, several coats of mascara and Swarovski crystals sprinkled over her lids, paired with nude lipstick from Lancôme layered with pink gloss and a little highlighter on her cheekbones. “There was enough going on,” he says of balancing her out-there catsuit with a lighter makeup application. And lest this look be soon forgotten, Barnes places it with J. Lo’s most iconic look. “The bodysuit is right up there with her Versace dress [from the 2000 Grammy Awards],” says Barnes. “After a decade in the public eye, most women wouldn’t have the guts to wear something like that but she is so confident. She’s a woman and she celebrates it. Everyone else is trying to be a size zero but not her.” What do you think of J. Lo’s look? Vote in our poll below!–Liz McNeil

Some people think that they need to outdo each other in order to shine. She does not have talent in voice or acting, just happened to be at the right place at the right time when people realize that face/ body types other blond/ blue eyed, can “represent” beauty, or in this case, sexy. Sadly, another reminder that money cannot buy class. Cannot believe that good ol’ Mike left a Miss Universe for this tramp.

her body is amazing. She looks like she is in fantastic shape but that catsuit was just inappropriate and unflattering. Someone should have told her no!!!

J-Lo is hot! The woman has a sexy figure, a beautiful face, a beautiful family, loads of money, an awesome job- if I didn’t like her so much, I’d be a hater too!

Jennifer Lopez has so little going on these days that she HAD to wear something like this to get noticed. And that’s pathetic.

she’s pretty and her clothes suit her perfectly

Jennifer seems to be getting more and more beautiful as she is getting older … and she finally got the RIGHT man by her side … you go girl! any negative comments come from the green-eyed monster!

She does have a good body, but I really did not like the catsuit. I don’t think anyone should wear a catsuit. She is happy and confident, she doesn’t need to prove that to anyone.

It’s more the woman who’s wearing the outfit than the outfit itself that impresses me ;)

okay, i think jennifer lopez looks nice enough, but i hate it when people say stuff like the makeup artist did….”She’s a woman and she celebrates it. Everyone else is trying to be a size zero but not her.” Okay, so she’s not a zero, but she’s not “average” either……i am sooooo sick of hollywood acting like the super thin actresses/singers who have personal trainers are normal and curvy. she may not be the smallest out there, but she’s still really small compared to an average woman.

don’t look good at all, not attractive and made her looked cheesy
