As Jennifer Lopez continues to make waves in TV, music, movies, beauty and fashion, Glamour is proud to honour her as a 2011 Woman of the Year in their December 2012 issue.

Matthias Vriens-McGrath captured Jennifer’s nautical-inspired look on the cover wearing a Chloë Sevigny for Opening Ceremony red bustier and navy Salvatore Ferragamo pants.

JLo was dripping in jewels as her look was accessorized with a Salvatore Ferragamo Swarovski crystal anchor necklace, a Michael Kors gold necklace, a Verdura gold bracelet, two Chanel Fine Jewelry gold, black onyx, and diamond bracelets, a Lorraine Schwartz white gold diamond bracelet, a Verdura gold, platinum, and diamond wide link bracelet and a Pomellato rose gold and diamond bracelet.

Now that’s a lot of bling, even P Diddy would be impressed.

Jane Fonda talks to her friend Jennifer Lopez (yes this shocked me too) about life, love and learning from her biggest year yet.

The Glamour December issue hits newsstands nationwide and digitally on November 8.

Here are some extract from Jennifer’s interview. If you want more head on over to Glamour.com.

On the possibility of a new relationship out of the public eye: “I think to give something a chance, to really get to know somebody, you want to do it out of the public eye. You know the media—they want to rush everything.”

On her style: “The things I liked when I was, like, 16 and in the Bronx—jeans, cut-up T-shirts—I still like. But I’ve been exposed to so much now from traveling the world and seeing couture clothes. I used all of that when I created my new line for Kohl’s. My style has come from everything, from where I started to where I am today.”

On what she’s learned about love and relationships: “I think I’ve finally learned the biggest lesson of all. You’ve got to love yourself first. You’ve got to be OK on your own before you can be OK with somebody else. You’ve got to value yourself and know that you’re worth everything. And until you value yourself enough and love yourself enough to know that, you can’t really have a healthy relationship.”
