Jennifer Lopez In Charbel Zoe – World Cup Opening Ceremony

Jennifer Lopez In Charbel Zoe - World Cup Opening Ceremony

Before taking to the stage to open the 2014 World Cup on Thursday (June 12) evening, Jennifer Lopez posted an Instagram video of three looks asking her fans to pick her look for her performance.

One was a nude catsuit (been there, done that – possibly Zuhair Murad); the second was a silver mini dress with safety-pin accents (most definitely Versus); and the final option, the one she selected, was created by young Lebanese designer Charbel Zoe

The emerald-green playsuit with a collar and beaded fringe had her looking the part of a Brazilian Carnival performer as she sang the World Cup theme song ‘We Are One’ alongside Pitbull, pop-star Claudia Leitte and Brazilian band Olodum.

She styled the look with Christian Louboutin ‘Marale’ booties and embellished tights.

This is a classic performance look from the diva and, apparently, for the newbie designer, who has had quite a career-defining moment.

    I actually like the playsuit. It reminds me of a samba outfit, which is fitting since the WC is in Brazil. I’m not a fan of the tights or the ugly boots though.

    Pitbull usually performs in suits so I don’t understand his cool dad wannabe outfit. Of all the days to change his formula lol.

    Good on her for going with an unknown designer, and creating a platform for him/her. Love the playsuit which as justme said above, is very samba-esque.

    Wish she’d worn a shoe in green to complement the outfit. But not bad from the ankles up.

    this is tacky, especially when a lot of kids also watch the opening ceremony

      It’s appropiate for Brazil, and we (By we, I refer to southamericans) don’t have any problem with women showing some skin.

        You know it’s WORLD CUP right? Which mean it was broadcasted in all over the world. If it’s VMA or other music events i don’t have any problem with that, but in this case people from all age watch the ceremony and seeing 40 year old women half naked is not appropriate, IMO

          So it would be alright if it was a 17 or 19 year old getting naked, right?

    I don’t like this tacky look at all.

    It works for this event

    I have already asked the question but is there any reason why female performers need to undress?
    The only thing different here from her other performance outfits is the color…..

    The girls are almost naked when the man is fully dresses… as usual !

  8. Cássia June 13, 2014 at 17:47 #

    I loved it!

    omgg jlo above all other performers has the best outfits on stage. this is perfect for the ceremony…not sure why yall are calling this tacky, should she have worn a sheath dress to dance??

    It is a terrible look… This outfit has nothing beautiful..I cannot call this “fashion”

    I’m supposed to like it, it’s a performance piece, it’s Brasil and it’s samba-inspired (probably) but something just doesn’t sit right with me. Maybe the fact that it’s too much Crazy Horse with embellishments. That said I don’t like the other singer’s outfit, either. And Pitbull just looks ridiculous

    Hi – anyone know who her earrings are by? Any brand or design reference would be much appreciated!

    I can’t believe the comments, this is a world wide performance and an impact needs to be made, and these girls alongside Pitbull provided it. I think the outfit is beautidul, fits perfectly to the event and her gorgeous body.

    I don’t want to see performers wear ankle length dresses.
