In the September issue of InStyle, Jennifer Lopez takes questions from fans. And when responding to one inquiry about taking good photographs, she gives a surprising answer.

“When I was maybe 15 or 16, I took a class at a modeling agency,” she reveals. “But mostly I think my ability [to photograph well] is innate. And it’s funny because I see that my daughter, Emme, has it too — that something special. She knows how to play for the camera.”

We learn a few more of Lopez’s style secrets in the spread: she has a pair of Gucci boyfriend jeans that “are full of holes,” but she’ll never throw them out; she only washes her hair “every few days” to keep it from getting “overworked”; and she uses moisturizer “every morning and every night.”

The superstar touches on her love of jewelry, too; recalling her first shiny gift — a cross she received for her First Communion — she says bling has “always been a part of my style. For me, jewelry will always be a big deal.” For more with Lopez, pick up the September issue of InStyle, on newsstands Friday, Aug. 17.
