Jennifer Lopez In Valentino – American Idol New Orleans Auditions

Jennifer Lopez In Valentino - American Idol New Orleans Auditions

Jennifer Lopez was joined at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center on Wednesday (August 27) in New Orleans, Louisiana by her American Idol co-judges, Harry Connick Jr and Keith Urban, for the latest round of auditions.

After letting JLo loose on the red carpet at the VMAs, Jennifer Lopez served up a more demure look on this occasion… Well, demure by her standards.

The scalloped hemline of her Valentino preppy black and white dress is typically high, yet I can’t help but be enamoured by this ’60s-style frock which oozes feminine charm.

While the oversized black bow against the black insert draws my attention in, it also highlights the rather uninspiring shoe choice.

A slicked-back bun Jack Vartanian black quartz and diamond earrings, a Sutra ring and a Le Vian diamond bracelet rounded out her look.

Too twee, or you’ll take anything after her VMAs frock?

Jennifer Lopez In Charbel Zoe – 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA

Jennifer Lopez In Charbel Zoe - 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA

Jennifer Lopez attended the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards held at The Forum on Sunday (August 24) in Inglewood, California.

With diva mode in full-effect, she stunned – in more ways than one – wearing shimmering silver Charbel Zoe gown featuring a bodice with multiple cut-outs and a slit to the hip-bone.

This look might not go down so well with most, but frankly, this is exactly what I would expect from JLo at a music event.

Styled with metallic white Jimmy Choo ‘Tartini’ pumps, Norman Silverman jewels and a silver python Thalé Blanc ‘Talia Mini Fastueux’ clutch, the singer completed her look with nude lips and silver eye makeup.

Anyone else giving this a pass?

Jennifer Lopez In L’Agence – Out In Beverly Hills

Jennifer Lopez In L'Agence - Out In Beverly Hills

Before she kicks off a promotional tour of her new single, ‘Booty’, Jennifer Lopez was spotted out on Monday (August 11) shopping in Beverly Hills, California.

The singer/’American Idol’ judge wore a navy look featuring a chiffon blouse with a tiny pair of L’Agence zipper-detailed track shorts.

Her Jenny-from-the-block look was styled with a large gold pendant necklace, aviator shades, an Hermes cuff, a quilted Chanel purse and Casadei pumps.

Often Jennifer’s street style consists of sweatpants and tee shirts, so it’s great to see her all dolled up on this occasion.

Below is a teaser video for her new single, ‘Booty’, the cover artwork for which she released earlier today.

In the video she shakes her famous derrière wearing Alexander McQueen Spring 2014 printed leggings with a red crop top and cap, along with a sparking crop top and hot-pant combo.

Jennifer Lopez In Elie Saab – 2014 Teen Choice Awards

Jennifer Lopez In Elie Saab - 2014 Teen Choice Awards

Jennifer Lopez attended the 2014 Teen Choice Awards held at The Shrine Auditorium on Sunday (August 10) in Los Angeles, California as one of the guest presenters, where she was reunited with her ‘Maid In Manhattan’ co-star Tyler Posey.

Donning green from head to toe, the ‘American Idol’ judge wore an Elie Saab Spring 2014 long-sleeved lace mini dress – of course – styled with satin accessories including a box clutch and Ermanno Scervino sandals.

For some reason I mistook JLo for Lea Michele for a split second. Perhaps because Lea has worn something similar, or because it is something I can picture her wearing.

Feeling a slight case of déjà vu? That may be because Toni Garrn wore the sleeveless gown version of this dress not too long ago.

Jennifer Lopez In Valentino – American Idol Auditions

American Idol is back, with judges Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Junior.

The trio lined up yesterday (August 4) for the start of auditions, with Jennifer standing out in her Valentino butterfly-embroidered dress.

This print has been favoured by celebs such as Blake Lively, Florence Welch, Shailene Woodley and Saoirse Ronan, probably for the striking mix of colours; however, methinks JLo was attracted to this because of the length.

Let the line up of ultra-mini frocks begin.

You can buy Jennifer’s Valentino Butterfly Print Bambolina Dress from
Neiman Marcus, Barneys.com and Saks.com.

Hair Trend Spotting: Sleek Ponytails

Beauty Trend Spotting Sleek Ponytails2

Many celebs are making a usually casual hairstyle red carpet worthy by slicking strands back to perfection. Pulling your hair back is an easy go-to, but these tips will take your look to the next level. Take note from Jennifer Lopez, Holland Roden, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Marano who are each showing us how it’s done.

Celebrity hair and makeup artist, Valerie Noble, shared her favorite tips to achieving a polished pony in a few easy steps. For Vanessa’s hair, Noble started with Redken Glass 01 Smoothing Anti Frizz Serum. A product like this is crucial to the style as it not only keeps frizz at bay for those with curlier textures, it will also tame flyaways.

Next, flat iron hair bone straight. Smoothing out every curl is key to creating a sleek end product. Opt for a small 1 inch iron and focus on the roots and slightly bend ends.

Once hair is straight gather all pieces. Noble says to, “brush all the hair up, just below the crown.” Location, location, location, is very important for today’s it ponytail. Placing too high can easily turn ‘80’s, so we recommend a mid to lower placement. Gather strands using Hair Bungees. Noble used them for Vanessa’s thick hair. Hair Bungees are perfect for thick hair and give more control over desired tightness. And if your ponytail isn’t as thick as you’d like, try adding clip-in extensions.

Lastly, you’ll want to secure your work with both Redken Outshine 01 Anti-Frizz Polishing Milk and Redken’s Quick Dry 18 Instant Finishing Spray. They not only holds hair, providing long lasting results, both will also add a healthy shine to your finished look.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Victoria Beckham In Victoria Beckham, David Beckhmam In Ralph Lauren & Jennifer Lopez In Atelier Versace

Best Dressed Of The Week - Victoria Beckham In Victoria Beckham, David Beckhmam In Ralpha Lauren & Jennifer Lopez In Atelier Versace

Victoria Beckham was your best dressed this week for her multi-coloured dress which gave us a sneak preview of her Pre-Spring 2015 collection.

As always, she is her own best brand ambassador.

My pick was Jennifer Lopez. It was JLo at her very best, wearing an Atelier Versace Fall 2014 strapless hybrid jumpsuit/gown.

Even though this was somewhat by default, as he was the only menswear look last week, David Beckham was the best dressed male, which I am sure he would’ve won anyway if he had been competing against 9 other guys.

Ralph Lauren suits and David Beckham are clearly a match made in fashion heaven.
