Jennifer Lopez In Zuhair Murad – 2012 Oscars

Jennifer Lopez was one of the presenters on the night at the 2012 Oscars, held in Hollywood this evening.

The ‘American Idol’ judge wore a Zuhair Murad gown.

This nude silk tulle gown with transparent crystal beading, a plunging neckline and cut-out sleeves was custom-made for JLO, so why am I just not feeling it?

JLo and Zuhair have created some great red carpet moments in the past – most memorably the 2010 Met Gala and the 2011 American Music Awards – so why this is look just OK?

Where is the drama?

This is nice, but tame by Jennifer’s standards.

A Salvatore Ferragamo silver mirrored minaudiere from the Resort 2012 Collection completed her look.

    I love this gown, but the hair ruins the whole look for me.

  2. Alina February 28, 2012 at 14:32 #

    The hair is terrible.

  3. Miriam Berthauer February 28, 2012 at 10:39 #

    Love this dress! It makes her look like the famous statue of Queen Nefertete.

  4. EmmaWoodhouse February 27, 2012 at 18:16 #

    Oh look, Jennifer Lopez in another skin-tight, plunging, sparkly, nude, wildly age-inappropriate gown. HOW ORIGINAL!

  5. Camille February 27, 2012 at 14:25 #

    Did anyone but me, notice the irony of the presentation when both ladies were quoting Edith Head and J-Lo’s line was that a dress should never be too tight? There she was with her plunging neckline, skin tight gown and bosoms almost bursting out?? Well, beyond that, the gown looks great on her body, but I’m with FC on this, something is just off. Maybe she is just trying too hard?? Too much in your face, look at my hot bod vibe?? That or the hairstyle. Not sure but not one of my favorites of the night, tho not a disaster by any means.

      ..and they turned around and showed the world their asses too…literally.

      • Camille February 27, 2012 at 17:48 #

        Exactly MsDivaMom, seems like the moment should be about the award and the recipients, not all about Jennifer & Cameron and their respective rear ends.

  6. SandTony February 27, 2012 at 14:14 #

    This is so tacky, why is she even invited to the Academy Awards anyway?

  7. Carolina Roq February 27, 2012 at 13:51 #

    The hair is not so good.

  8. justme February 27, 2012 at 12:38 #

    The sleeves remind me of a figure skater’s costume, which is never good lol.
    And I also don’t like the hair.

  9. gabis February 27, 2012 at 12:13 #

    I don’t like the dress, but the biggest problem is the hair. It’s unchanging. Whenever her hair isn’t down, she pulls out that ‘do. It’s tiring, ugly and and even a little tacky. Maybe it’s time for J.Lo to change her hair stylist…

  10. RebelR February 27, 2012 at 11:04 #

    I think she looks wonderful.

  11. roxana February 27, 2012 at 10:38 #

    my first favourite of the night

  12. D February 27, 2012 at 09:00 #

    diva attitude just for jlo

  13. Zmia February 27, 2012 at 08:40 #

    The dress is simply ugly, I thought Jennifer would be dressed like real diva, as she always does.

  14. Sharon February 27, 2012 at 08:26 #

    I love this dress and nobody else could wear it as well. I especially liked the moment on stage when J-Lo and Cameron posed looking over their shoulders with their backs to the audience. They had fun and so did the audience.

  15. Karen February 27, 2012 at 08:22 #

    Her make-up is not as flawless as per usual. A tad oily?

  16. Andreea February 27, 2012 at 08:20 #

    I was really hoping to see her in something more sophisticated and glamorous.Her looks makes me think that she tries to hard and that she doesn’t really feel that comfortable.

  17. Ramsay February 27, 2012 at 08:00 #

    Totally agree with you FC – this fine but it fails in comparison to previous jlo looks at the oscars

  18. Lalitha February 27, 2012 at 07:46 #

    I love this gown and she looks uberfab!

  19. hally February 27, 2012 at 06:45 #

    i’m just glad she wasn’t allowed to bring that backup dancer as a date.

  20. vicky February 27, 2012 at 05:38 #

    Don’t like the hair, ages her. The cut out sleeves looks like they where too small for her arms and have cracked in the seems..
    JLO was the last person I’d thought would jump on the blah-bandwagon of white/beige/nude gowns, shame really.

    In fact, she and A.Jolie could just have switch bodies, especially with the OVERposing AJ was doing tonight!

  21. elena Marcos February 27, 2012 at 05:03 #

    I don’t like the hair. She also had her left areola showing during the was obvious because it was darker-brown..

  22. boi February 27, 2012 at 04:23 #

    seems to be trying too hard.

  23. gurlygurl February 27, 2012 at 04:13 #

    Totally agree with you F.C. It’s just “meh”

  24. Vidhya February 27, 2012 at 03:59 #

    I thought it was pretty dramatic considering its skin showing thru the nude layers, no?

  25. Jess2 February 27, 2012 at 03:58 #

    Don’t like the hair but love the dress, I feel like it has a touch of Hollywood glamour which I love. Not her best but she does look lovely

  26. Eve February 27, 2012 at 03:55 #

    It feels like the dress came from early 90s. Also is it my screen, or her forehead looks weird?

  27. Jen February 27, 2012 at 03:50 #

    I dunno, I look at how it highlights her famous posterior, and I don’t think it’s lacking in drama!

  28. noo February 27, 2012 at 03:49 #

    i hate this dress, when she and cameron diaz were presenting jennifer’s disaster distracted from cameron’s beautiful gown!

  29. Emerico February 27, 2012 at 03:47 #

    Tacky. The dress, the woman. That is all.

    • hally February 27, 2012 at 06:44 #

      agreed. I never could understand why shes invited to the Oscars year after year.

  30. pipsqueak February 27, 2012 at 03:42 #

    Jenny on the block probably tried to tone it down for movie people, but the whole look fell flat. I’m tired of this bun. Why does she like it so much? The gown looked like a candy wrap. She looked like some kind of a candy or fan queen from a fairy-tale-turned-movie.

  31. Linda February 27, 2012 at 03:41 #

    She’s one of my best dressed. One of the only women who really brought it tonight on a very disappointing red carpet. And I’m not normally a fan of hers.

    • bm February 27, 2012 at 04:16 #

      Me too, the hair are really bad.

    • bm February 27, 2012 at 04:17 #

      Me too, and the hair are really bad.

  32. Christine February 27, 2012 at 03:41 #

    Her body is one of the best.

    • Nancy February 27, 2012 at 05:06 #

      Jennifer is overweight and does not have a great figure. I am so tired of seeing too much of her exposed, and what is not, is poured into something that is beyond tight. I think she always looks low class and never elegant.

      • Fashion Critic February 27, 2012 at 10:03 #

        I disagree, she’s not overweight

      • justme February 27, 2012 at 12:34 #

        That’s overweight to you? Wow lol.

      • Sofia February 27, 2012 at 13:45 #

        LOL!!! Overweighted? Oh come on, she looks drop dead gorgeous! She has the body of my dreams!!!
        And the dress is perfect on her!
        Just maybe I would prefer it without the holes in the sleeves.

      • Jones19 February 27, 2012 at 15:59 #

        If Jennifer Lopez is overweight in your eyes then your view is pretty skewed.

  33. Mahima February 27, 2012 at 03:40 #

    Ugh, that hairstyle is hideous.

  34. adriana February 27, 2012 at 03:40 #

    tbh i was praying she’d wear Elie Saab, she would have definately given everyone a run for their money!

  35. Shaina February 27, 2012 at 03:37 #

    I actually really love this! I do think its tame on Jennifer but I really, really like it. The hair is gorgeous and so is the makeup. She looks great!

  36. Raquel February 27, 2012 at 03:37 #

    I think the dress feel dated, you know? It is a pretty piece, but it fails. HATE the hair.

    • molly February 27, 2012 at 03:45 #

      Your very right about it being dated. I also agree with you on her hair.

      • Nat February 27, 2012 at 14:24 #

        +1. It feels dated, and I really don’t like this hairstyle, although it seems like she uses it quite a lot.

        Also, the fake cut-outs on the arms are hideous.

  37. adriana February 27, 2012 at 03:34 #

    really FC? i thought you’d love it …

    • Fashion Critic February 27, 2012 at 03:38 #

      nope…far from it.

  38. Jones19 February 27, 2012 at 03:32 #

    I’m in love with this gown. It looks like she was poured into it. The tight bun is not my favorite though.

    • dee February 27, 2012 at 14:01 #

      I agree with hairdo. Another hairstyle couldn’t looked better but I love this gown. I wasn’t crazy about her other Zuhair Murad looks but this one is amazing.
