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

The outfit is a bit sexy. She’s got the body to pull it off, but the sad truth is that it’s just an attempt to get more attention due to her insecurity. The “personality” and “confidence” you see is nothing more than an act.

SHE LOOKS FABULOUS!!!! Anyone who would disagree must be envious and jealous. It is amazing how some responders “think” that after becoming a “Mom” ALL PERSONAL LIFE MUST END, as though THAT is all they want out of life!!
“GO J-LO”!!! Show these Idiots how to LIVE!!!

Its the 21st century and ppl are still closed minded abt body exposure. The catsuit was not revealing at all, j-lo has always made her mark in the fashion industry for being daring and this was the cream of the crop. She has a great body and looks great at 40 and just becasue she is a mother does not mean she needs to cover herself up, she has great self esteem and loves her curves very much.YOU GO JLO!!!

Yeah on

She looked like an idiot who needs to realize she’s talentless. Pay more attention to your kids, it’s over.

Me and some other people make sure that Jennifer Lopez will divorce Marc Anthony for good. I love Jennifer Lopez’ outfit. Someday Jennifer Lopez and I will meet each other on purpose. And someday Jennifer Lopez and I will marry each other for good.
