I’d love to start out off my AMAs protection by raving about Olivia Rodrigo in David Koma, Halle Bailey in LaQuan Smith or Cardi B in every part from Jean Paul Gaultier to Alexandre Vauthier, however as a substitute, I’m right here to speak about Jennifer Lopez’s boobs. And not simply to speak about them—to advocate for them! Because they, like J.Lo, deserved higher.
Now, earlier than I get began, let me start by fawning over Jennifer Lopez, as a result of I imply her no hurt. In reality, I’m arguing in favor of this stunning, proficient, kind-hearted girl! Lopez is wonderful, and as a seasoned performer for many years now, shes’s wowed us in lots of unimaginable on-stage ensembles. Need I remind you of her Super Bowl slay? That stated, this time round her stylists actually missed the mark.
I admit, I didn’t watch the American Music Awards reside this year. I used to be busy, sue me! But all the time keen to take a look at the pink carpet hits and misses, I turned to social media for my repair—and one among my favourite accounts, @CheckTheTag, actually delivered. I full-on gasped after I noticed the photos they posted of J.Lo in her Dolce & Gabbana dress. And not in a great way!
After I calmed down, I headed over to Lopez’s official YouTube web page to observe her full efficiency.
Singing “On My Way” from the movie Marry Me (or lip-synching it, as a lot of Twitter is satisfied), Lopez began out with a black coat over her pale pink tulle skirt, which she eliminated to disclose a fitted tulle bodice, accessorized with a daring headpiece. The look, styled by Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, was created by Dolce & Gabbana, a notoriously problematic model. For essentially the most half, although, they design stunning, well-fitting clothes despite their drama—however apparently, they’d one thing completely different deliberate for J.Lo.
The bust of this dress…merely doesn’t match her in any respect. How did Zangardi and Haenn let this occur?! AMAs viewers might clearly see the underwire cups of the corset sitting inches above Lopez’s breasts. Not solely did it look dangerous, it regarded uncomfortable! Any larger-chested feminine like myself is aware of this kind of bodice is the enemy. But with a full styling workforce and a luxurious model behind the look? There’s no excuse for why it wasn’t perfectly-fitted to her body.
At the very least, they might’ve went for the traditional Scoop & Swoop and hoisted her boobs up into the cups. Ample cleavage and a few boob tape would’ve been an appropriate compromise!
Again, no shaming J.Lo right here. Her physique is ideal (as all our bodies are!) and that is merely a styling snafu. But a serious one! I can’t determine how this look acquired authorised when her efficiency attire is often so on level. I’ve grown so accustomed to seeing her in bedazzled bodysuits, I had no thought a tulle robe may very well be so disastrous.
In a time when society is slowly studying to embrace all our bodies, I’d argue that that is extra than simply an ill-fitting garment. If one of many greatest stars on the planet can’t get a model to change their thought of what seems to be good to suit her determine, how can the remainder of us anticipate choices for ourselves? D&G most positively might’ve created a bigger underwire body for the bust of this dress to go well with J.Lo’s curves. Or, her stylists might’ve merely chosen some other look. Like, any different look!
It doesn’t make sense, which is why I’m demanding justice for J.Lo’s boobs. And J.Lo, if you happen to see this, I nonetheless suppose you regarded wonderful, sweetie. You can do no mistaken, even when your workforce is serving up borderline sabotage!
