When Jennifer Lopez‘s American Idol contract runs out, the star could have another lucrative career — as a celebrity stylist! Wardrobe designers Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn say the fashion plate knows her Prabal from her Prada. “She’s been in this industry a long time,” Zangardi tells WWD when asked about the duo’s “most informed” client. “It comes with experience.” And Lopez’s discerning support serves as a boon to the industry. “On American Idol recently [she] wore an asymmetric fuchsia Valentino top that we were told sold out the next days,” he says. However, Lopez may want to weigh her options before getting in the styling biz. Though the duo helps A-listers including Rihanna and Kerry Washington find the perfect red-carpet dresses, the job has its tedious aspects. “We bagged up every outfit with shoes and accessories, so everything is paint-by-numbers,” Zangardi says of client Rachel McAdams‘s Cannes Film Festival Marchesa moment. “The final look is extremely glamorous but getting to that point often not so!” –Justine Harman

JLo is so gorgeous! I love to see what she decides to wear on the show. I watch them all on DISH Network as a an employee. I am even watching them with my subscription access. It’s fantastic and available FREE to everyone who has a subscription.It’s the most content of any provider out there.I love her appearances because she is always dressed appropriately for show stopping photos.

[…] they’re exceptions to the rule. Celebrity status is one of the exceptions. Celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Simpson have done surprisingly well with their  collections that didn’t take decades […]

Um, I thought the stars had professional stylists pick out their clothes. They actually lift a finger and do it themselves? Hmm, I love fun fashion trends but I think it’s all industry driven, not thought of by the celebs themselves.
