J. Lo's Maternity-Wear Philosophy: Glam Gowns, No Sweats!

With all the stars making the rounds for N.Y.C. Fashion Week, the fashion flock is getting even more jaded than usual. But despite the dazzling gowns at Marchesa, all eyes were definitely on nine-months-pregnant (with twins!) Jennifer Lopez, looking as gorgeous as any of the models in her own silky teal Marchesa dress that highlighted off her growing belly. Sure, she looks fantastic, but how’s pregnancy really treating her? “I’m feeling good,” the almost-due singer tells PEOPLE of her decision to check out the new collection along with husband Marc Anthony. “I haven’t gone out a lot for the past few months”, she admits, “but Marchesa has been incredibly good to me. They are just amazing!” And while most moms-to-be stick to comfort wear, the always-glam Jennifer says sweats are not an option. “People make fun of me because when I do have them over to my house I do have a dress on,” she laughs. “I don’t like the way the sweats look with the extra weight. I like to feel good about myself even at home.” And while the singer won’t be able to wear any of Marchesa’s red carpet confections anytime soon, she does have her eye on a few special looks. But, Lopez admits “Right now the best thing I can do for myself, for my body is to keep resting which is not easy for me. I like keeping busy and it is very hard because if they say ‘be off your feet for four hours a day’, I’m like ‘oh, God!’ It’s hard.” If she looks this good at nine months, we can’t wait to see her back in action!

I’ve liked her dresses…except this one!! Makes her look frumpy and it’s too wrinkled! And the shoes are not delicate and are pretty bad too.

Halle has set the maternity fashion bar very high! She’s the momma to beat in the fashion dept!!

She looks small to be carrying twins. I am an ultrasonographer and I have seen many people who are carrying twins, and they don’t look nearly this small at 9 mnths. I hope everything turns out well for her..

I can’t believe it looks like she’s earing stilettos..at this stage of pregnancy…….. I hope someone was there to hold her hand while she walked!…

From this angle she doesn’t ever look pregnant! She looks great! I’m very happy for her.

That dress is horrible on her.

And so are the shoes.

I think Ms. Lopez looks very pretty. I wish her and her husband Mr. Anthony the best of luck with their upcoming delivery, may thier babies be healthy, happy and bring them much joy.

I have a feeling that if she turned to the side she would look WAY bigger. It seems she made sure to not be photographed from the side. All of her pictures are from the front.

ummmmm the knees, yikes
