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

Haha! I only voted I love it because she has confidence in herself as a woman. I’ve got to celebrate that! Go J. Lo!

Not sure why Marc would approve his wife out in public dressed like that.
You would think he would want that for himself.

The outfit was way out there and not even someone with a perfect 10 body should wear something like that in public if they had ANY love for themselves.

It’s amazing how jealous ppl can be.Having a body like that after giving birth to twins is reason to show it off and be proud. Go JLo..make them die with envy !!!!

She is a married woman and a mother.That outfit is very inappropriate. She has beauty, wealth,loving family,and fame. what else is she looking for. Totally uncalled for.

SHe is always trying to prove how sexy she is, and the more she does that, the less cool it is.
I am by no means jealous. Sure I would love to have the perfect body but what is the perfect body?
Marilyn Monroe was a fantastically sexy woman in the 60’s and her photos were sexy yet not too revealing and she was a size 14.

So what is the perfect body?
I don’t think there is one, except on paper or with photoshop and other than that, it all depends on every ones distinctive taste.

She needs to stop trying so hard.

I do agree that J-Lo looks good for having twins. However, she has trainers and nannies and anything that money could buy to get a perfect body! I also have twins and I know that I could not do all that she does because I do not have the staff that she has. I am 5’11 and a size 10 and I think I look great for having twins too- but I did it on my own. I think she sends the wrong message to people because the average mom cannot do all that she does and she acts like we all can. She forgets her Block upbringing.

She is sharing what should be very private. It was a bad judgement call. It seems also a desperate attempt for attention. Really kind of pathetic.

She also has had cosmetic procedure(s). I bet you it is in the double digits)
They all do it because they have the money.
Not sure I want to envy women who let doctors cut them up to look good anyway.
A sexy woman does not need to reveal everything.
A sexy woman can dress in sweats and still look sexy.
The catsuit was innapropriate (even with the under wear which I agree was probably spanx)

I like J-lo but I don’t get why she needed to wear something like that. I thought she was past all that splashy stuff after the Versace Dress? If another star wore it , they’d probably be sliced and diced.

I cannot believe you said she was fat.
give me a break, how big are you?
88 pounds with your fingers down your throat?
