Before we had even heard of Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez inspired women across the globe to embrace their curves in a world dominated by size zero models and unattainable beauty ideals. But the singer wasn’t aware of her influential status at the time. In a cover interview for In style magazine, the 49-year-old revealed: “‘I was just being myself. In my family, curves were glorified and part of the culture. It was just like, ‘Jennifer has a big ʙuтт, and it’s good’.”
The mother-of-two’s enviable body graces the publication’s recent issue, as she is featured posing in a sequinned Valentino cape – worn as a sideless dress only J Lo could pull off. Unsurprisingly, social media users were quick to compliment the singer on her latest editorial. One took to Instagram to comment, “Wow! THIS is what a natural body and many hours at the gym looks like! Beautiful!”
While another simply wrote: “This will break the Internet.”
It’s been 18 years since Jennifer Lopez made jaws drop across the world in her now-infamous green Versace plunging, side-slit dress on the Grammys red carpet. And in a new pH๏τo shoot for InStyle magazine, she’s baring almost more than she ever has before.
Lopez is the magazine’s December cover star and dons a metallic green Valentino Haute Couture pleated cape worn as a dress that completely exposes her infamous curves.
So how is it that Lopez looks exactly like she did when she first wore that leaf-print Versace dress ? She credits three things: no caffeine, no alcohol and lots of sleep.
