Jennifer Lopez for W Magazine August 2013

Jennifer Lopez W August 2013

With her hair in a darker hue than we are used to seeing, Jennifer Lopez donned a long-sleeved Gucci gown in a black net tulle with a heaven’s bird embroidered motif from the Fall 2013 collection for her W magazine August 2013 cover.

She talks to the mag about growing up in the Bronx, her relationship with her mother, and parenting.

Here are some extracts from her interview. You can read more over at wmagazine.com or pick up the issue when it hits newstands July 16.

On being close to her childhood home in the Bronx for the interview: “The last time I was in there was when my mom and dad called us home to tell us they were separating after 33 years of marriage. I think that’s why I was nervous about coming here today. It’s like seeing someone from the past – you’re afraid to run into them because you never know if it’s going to be ‘wow’ or very difficult. This is a combination of both.”

On her and her mother’s relationship: “My mom and I butted heads. I didn’t want to go to college – I wanted to try dance full-time. I was homeless. But I told her ‘This is what I have to do.’”

On parenting her kids Max and Emme: “I think a lot about teaching my kids to work hard. I’ve learned something about kids – they don’t do what you say; they do what you do. I watched my parents.”

    I like this look on her but not the cover per say.

    She looks 10 years older.

    Ahhh, okay, I see it’s not just me who finds this very aging.

    She looks good! Does darker hair make you look older?

    NOT A GOOD THING OBVIOUSLY. What a fab dress and I cannot even appreciate it because of how old she looks!!!

    It’s totally amusing to me that when you click-through to Gucci’s site, you can buy this $16000 dress online. Just “Add To Cart!” Somehow it seems that if you can afford a $16000 dress you’re not shopping for it online.

      I thought the very same.

    I don’t think it’s aging at all. I think she looks more sophisticated-but in a good way. She doesn’t have lots of extraneous try hard highlights going on, and I think she looks beautiful. Better than I have seen her in a while. And that dress must be called heaven b/c it is heavenly. Just WOW!!

    I just got my issue in the mail, and my husband, said, “Wow, who’s that?!”. He couldn’t believe it when I told him. And from a hetero guy’s perspective, let’s just at he was duely impressed. (And NOT by the fashion). So yeah, I still think she looks amazing.

    I LOVE THIS COVER!!! This is the prettiest I have seen her look in a minute. I was so tired of that overly processed oily brown/blonde hair of hers. This darker toned hair reminds me of when she was a back up dance on in Living Color. And for anyone who thinks this look is aging, look at the whole shoot (particularly the one with the burgundy dress. It was very sophisticated-sexy.
