Jennifer Lopez: 'I Feel Like I Felt When I Was 28'

Jennifer Lopez April InStyleMichelangelo Di Battista for InStyle

Jennifer Lopez has a million projects in the works. She’s a weekly host on American Idol, shooting a new TV drama, about to drop her 10th studio album, the head of her own clothing empire for Kohls and mom to 6-year-old twins. We got exhausted just typing that, but Lopez, 44, maintains she has more energy than ever.

“I feel like I felt when I was 28,” she tells the April issue of InStyle magazine. “My bones don’t hurt. I feel great. I actually feel better, more confident. Of course I still have the nerves, but now I know how to control them. When I was in my twenties, I wasn’t sure of myself. Now I can really stretch. I don’t have to stay in the box. At this point I can say to myself, ‘So what if I fall, so what?’ I’m going to get back up.”

And Lopez says she’s in great company now that the cultural perspective towards women in their forties has shifted. “The turning point was a couple of years ago when the September issue of women’s magazines had cover girls who were all over 40 — Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock, Julia Roberts, me. It was hard not to be happy. That says something about our society. People used to believe their life — or at least their life as a performer — was over at 28 or some ungodly age! God, when I think of myself back then, I had no idea who I was. I think I’m barely getting that under control now.” Read More

Shailene Woodley: I Only Wear Used Clothes Unless It's For Work

It’s no secret that Shailene Woodley marches to the beat of her own drummer, stylewise, as she shows when she wears wet hair or five-finger running shoes on the red carpet. And we’d expect nothing less from the down-to-earth star, who just told The Hollywood Reporter “My religion is the Earth, man. I believe in trees.”

In the magazine’s cover story, Woodley clarifies her position on balancing her eco soul with the needs of the red carpet, further setting her apart from other starlets her age — but in a good way. “I exclusively buy used clothes,” she says in the interview. “I’m going to be a citizen of this planet, and I’m going to do my responsibility and live in stride with nature instead of constantly fighting against her.”

When Kendall Jenner, 18, walked in Marc Jacobs’s show (center) during New York Fashion Week, many assumed it was a one-time stunt by the designer, who loves using celebrities in his ad campaigns. But now that she’s graced the catwalk in London and Paris (for Givenchy, left, and Chanel, right), Jenner seems poised for a high-fashion career to take off. We chatted with Nigel Barker, host of modeling competition The Face, to see if he thinks Jenner has what it takes to become a top model.

“I definitely think she has the potential,” he tells PEOPLE. “These things rely on a little bit of longevity and she’s still young, [but] she’s doing all the right things, walking in the right shows. She’s got the look — that smoldering, strong look. Every once in a while, she reminds me a bit of Gia Carangi, that sort of mystery to her.”

The Bachelor's 'Free Spirit' Lucy Aragon Dishes on the Best and Worst 'Women Tell All' Dresses

We’ll admit that when Lucy Aragon stepped out of the limo on the first episode of this season of The Bachelor our snark radar went off. Between the floral crown, bare feet and her occupation (“free spirit”), she was an instant target on Twitter (although we did like her ALC maxi dress).

The 24-year-old model didn’t fare much better in the second episode, spending most of the time walking a dog totally naked. Even Juan Pablo was taken aback, telling PEOPLE, “Ay, Lucy! I had no idea Lucy was topless so much. I don’t love that she’s like that, but at the end of the day, she’s just a happy camper.” Read More

So far, 2014 has been a very busy year for Catherine Lowe. A fairytale wedding, followed by a dreamy honeymoon, followed by a big move to Texas to be with her husband Sean Lowe. And this weekend the newlyweds just celebrated their union with another major milestone — his-and-hers haircuts!

Catherine and Sean went to the Benjamin with Negin Zand salon in West Hollywood for some hair TLC. And while Sean got his usual clean-cut chop, Catherine went for something a little more dramatic: some piecey fringe! And the reality star totally got the Hollywood memo on sharing every step of a hair transformation on social media, as she Instagrammed and Tweeted about her experience.

“My “before” pic at the salon. Let’s just say I’m nervous…” she captioned the below photo on Instagram. And judging by her after pic, it looks like the star loved the result. “My rockstar alter ego brought to you by @salonbenjamin,” she wrote.

We also might see some bold wardrobe changes from Sean’s new bride, as she’s already scoping some new clothes for her look. “My new hair makes me want to rock somethin like this…” she wrote on Twitter along with a photo of a super-plunging gown.

What do you think of Catherine’s new do? Do you like the bangs? Share your thoughts below!

Sexy Swimsuit Showdown: Gloria from Modern Family vs. Shoshanna from Girls In a Neon Monokini

To look at them, you wouldn’t think Modern Family‘s Gloria Delgado (left, played by Sofia Vergara) and Girls‘s Shoshanna Shapiro (played by Zosia Mamet) had much in common — especially sartorially. Gloria tends to favor short, tight and low-cut wrap dresses and huge heels, while Shoshanna’s tastes veer toward the girlie-to-juvenile. Gloria goes for huge, voluminous waves, while Shoshanna is known for her questionable side buns. But there is, apparently, one item of clothing on which the characters can agree: this sexy $450 Agent Provocateur monokini.

Michelle Obama Breaks First Lady Jumpsuit Barrier

Michelle Obama has never been shy about making style waves as the First Lady, whether it’s by wearing H&M on the Today Show or admitting her bangs were a “midlife crisis.” But those are taking a backseat to this major fashion moment: Michelle Obama has crossed the jumpsuit threshold.

RELATED PHOTOS: See what your other favorite celebrities are wearing!

Several weeks ago, the Washington Post informed us that Obama was about to make jumpsuits happen, after she was reported to have worn one in red to her 50th birthday party. And she appears to be delivering on that promise, hitting the new Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon in a flowy, silky black St. John number with a cowlneck. She added a wide black leather belt and pointed kitten heels, plus gold-and-gemstone earrings.

The First Lady was on The Tonight Show to promote her “Let’s Move” anti-childhood obesity campaign. After participating in a skit that had her feeding kale chips to Fallon and Will Ferrell dressed as teenage girls (a must-watch), she asked Americans to submit photos that show “how they move” on social media with the hashtag “#Letsmove.” She also hinted that the President and Vice President may be sharing “Let’s Move” photos of their own.

What do you think of this First Lady fashion first? Think we’ll be seeing more in this vein from Obama?
