When Jennifer Lopez first showed her longtime makeup artist Scott Barnes her sexy catsuit the day of her appearance on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, she asked him, “Do you think it’s too much?” But, there wasn’t much doubt she’d be wearing the daring look, designed by stylist Paula Bradley. “She said, ‘It looks cool, right?’ She was so excited. She said ‘I like it!’” Barnes explains,“She was having such a good time and it really showed. She has confidence about her body. She’s not hiding behind any insecurities.” And Barnes marvels at her incredible shape, considering she is the mother of twins! “She is 40 and she’s had two kids,” he says. “Her body looks better than ever. It was so hot!” Husband Marc Anthony also approved, according to Barnes. The catsuit however, wasn’t quite as naked as it appeared on TV. “It was nude with black mesh over it,” says Barnes. “She wasn’t that cold. It was like having a ski suit on underneath.” And her bodysuit wasn’t the only sexy thing Lopez was sporting — Barnes highlighted her eyes with smoky makeup including charcoal eyeliner, several coats of mascara and Swarovski crystals sprinkled over her lids, paired with nude lipstick from Lancôme layered with pink gloss and a little highlighter on her cheekbones. “There was enough going on,” he says of balancing her out-there catsuit with a lighter makeup application. And lest this look be soon forgotten, Barnes places it with J. Lo’s most iconic look. “The bodysuit is right up there with her Versace dress [from the 2000 Grammy Awards],” says Barnes. “After a decade in the public eye, most women wouldn’t have the guts to wear something like that but she is so confident. She’s a woman and she celebrates it. Everyone else is trying to be a size zero but not her.” What do you think of J. Lo’s look? Vote in our poll below!–Liz McNeil

Loved the catsuit…but the coat she had on before she sang? Horrible! It looked like Morticia Addams had donated her hair and they made a coat from it!

Love her. Love her confidence! Don’t love the bodysuit. Appreciate her guts though!

Oh yeah. Love her body, too.

Regardless of how good her body might look, still she is a mother and mothers should cover up!!

She is not all that to look at. Yes she is pretty but she needs to be top heavy to match her big lower half. She needs to put her clothes on.

She is beautiful and so what she has the body and

For a so-called ‘confident’ woman, J-Lo tries way too hard to be seen as sexy; especially after having the twins. We get it J-Lo, you are soooooooooooooo sexy!!!!No need to keep trying to put ‘it’ in our faces all of the time!

Grace on

Umm…no, not pretty, not good at all.
