This week, Jennifer Lopez opted out of her usual mini dress and into a pair of black Joseph "Diamond" pants that had a lot of zip. This new kind of appearance debuted when the singer showed up on at American Idol on Thursday.
Indeed, as JLo walked down the AI stage with fellow arbiters Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson for the top 5 elimination show, she was rocking a new look that had much more funk than the majority of her other outfits that tend to ooze sensuality.
In fact, her shimmering top was very rock and roll. The silver lame Paco Rabanne blouse from this designer's spring 2012 collection was adorned with black-and-red shoulders and was tailored to show off Lopez's curves without exploiting them.
As for the zip in the lower half of the ensemble, well that was provided by a number of silver zippers that sat on her hips. Meanwhile, on her feet, Jennifer Lopez wore a pair of Brian Atwood pumps called "Power Studs."
While JLo was not on the small screen looking as sexy as she usually does, the outfit for Thursday was a refreshing change of pace and showed her hipster side. Perhaps her man Casper Smart is giving this diva lessons in how to transcend her appearance to meet the expectations of new fans who could care less about extremely short skirts for the chance to see something more on trend that doesn't appeal for the sake of sex appeal.
What do you think? Do you like the way Jennifer Lopez rocked her American Idol fashion this week with a less sexy look? Thoughts? Thanks.
