Where Does Jennifer Lopez Keep that Famous Grammys Dress?

No one will ever forget the plunging Versace dress Jennifer Lopez wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards. But the star herself still hasn’t figured out exactly what to do with the memorable gown.

“I have that at home. The other day, my housekeeper put it on a mannequin in my spa, where I get my hair and makeup done,” Lopez says in the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar. “She sent me a pictures. She was like, ‘You like this dress?’ Um, yeah, but I don’t know if I like it out in the house!”

Fashion problems aside, Lopez also dishes on her fashion tastes, which she realizes have changed over time. The singer says she’s gone from a “boyish, hip-hoppy sensibility: big hoops, sneakers, tank tops, and my big curly hair” to adding a “sexy element” to channeling “movie stars, Jackie O. And now all of these things mixed together, that’s my style.”

But behind that well-dressed façade is a mother who realizes she keeps a crazy schedule — and works to keep her children as happy and grounded as possible when on the road.

“I make [travel] as simple and as beautiful as I can because my life is kind of big,” she shares. “So I pack my luggage, or dress myself, or comb my kids’ hair, pick up their clothes — that makes our life beautiful, you know? There’s something very elegant in that.” For more with Lopez, pick up the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar, on newsstands Jan. 8, or visit harpersbazaar.com/jenniferlopez.

I must have the most beautiful life ever! When I travel for work I have to pack my own luggage. But before I do that I have to prepare all the dinners for the week, make sure all the laundry is washed and outfits are arranged for the kids for the week AND make sure all schedules are displayed clearly so everyone is where they need to be on time. Maybe I need a more competent husband…but I’m just making sure my life is as beautiful as possible. LOL! In all seriousness though, it’s amusing how out of touch with reality celebrities can be.

I agree with the other posters here. I think perhaps Ms. Lopez needs a reality check. Glad her life is elegant and beautiful.

I dress myself everyday, do I get a prize or something?

My, my, she is such a poser. Especially with her loser boy toy!

Gosh, I must be Grace Kelly – today alone I dressed myself, fed my child and picked up dog droppings.
I think Jennifer needs to get in touch with reality. You can still have money and a clue.

Oh please Jenny, go back to the Block and stay there…!

These are the comments of the out of touch, holier than thou, filthy rich Hollywood left that support Obama and tell US that our taxes should be higher so that things can be “fair”. Clueless like all her Hollywood democrat friends.
