Jennifer Lopez is playing around with a little cyborg-inspired fashion, I see. At Elle‘s Women In Hollywood Celebration on December 5, the singer was giving us abs for days and plenty of under boob in a cropped, backless silver breastplate by designer Grace Ling.
The futuristic top was actually a part of JLo’s dress, with spaghetti straps in the back connecting the breastplate to the figure-skimming black skirt. I couldn’t begin to tell you how the physics of this garment work, all I know is that she’s JLo, so of course she looks great.
Lopez accessorized her iRobot gown with large diamond earrings in the shape of lizards, a black clutch, and her hot husband Ben Affleck. She styled her hair in a sleek bun and opted for a dramatic smokey eye to match the glam of the rest of the outfit.
Lopez was honored with an icon award at the Elle event, and her acceptance speech about the contradictory pressures of being a woman in Hollywood reminded me a little (a lot) of America Ferreira’s Barbie monologue. “The idea was that you were not as real a musician if you were also an actress, or you’re not a serious actor if you’re a dancer, or a legitimate business person or entrepreneur if you are an artist, but it went beyond that too,” Lopez said. “You couldn’t be good or credible at anything if you were sexy, and you couldn’t be sexy if you were a mom, and you couldn’t be intelligent if you were beautiful, and so on and so on. And you certainly couldn’t be any of those things if you were a lil Puerto Rican girl from the Bronx.”
Of course, the punch line is that Jennifer Lopez is all of those things and more. Like, for instance, she’s also a part time cyborg in this silver breastplate dress.
