Jennifer Lopez continued her “hearts and flowers” era at Elie Saab’s Paris haute couture fashion week show today. Jennifer wore a stunning olive plunge dress, which had a lavender and green flower cape. She accessorized with a velvet olive ribbon in her hair.
This is Jennifer's second floral outfit this week—and likely another symbolic one ahead of the release of her visual album This Is Me...Now. On Monday, Jennifer wore a white rose petal-adorned coat to Schiaparelli’s haute couture show. “A coat made of 7,000 real rose petals kept fresh and alive by sugar water, also known as hummingbird nectar,” she wrote on Instagram. “Designed especially for me by @DanielRoseberry for @Schiaparelli Couture 2024. Excited for this journey into my Hearts + Flowers Era…#ThisIsMeNow coming February 16…”
During her ELLE Women in Hollywood interview in November, Jennifer spoke about what’s next for her as an artist. “I want to keep evolving,” she said. “And whether I’ll take the helm and direct my own film at one point is a possibility. I’ve talked about it. I’ve been offered to direct a couple of things, and I’ve turned [them] down, just because of time constraints and things like that. I can’t tell you, ‘I’m going to direct three movies, and I’m going to do this, and I’m going to do that.’ But I can say that I will keep evolving as an artist and as a performer and producer and in all of the ways to create the projects that I decide to be involved with—and I hope that that never stops.”
She also spoke to Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe in January about where she was 20 years ago and how those lessons have impacted where she is now—something she will be exploring musically in This Is Me...Now.
“The funny thing is, 20 years ago, people thought that I was oversharing as far as my personal life went, and so I kind of shut down and got very, very much more private, even though people knew who I was with and kind of assumed what was happening,” she recalled. “I was always very quiet about what was truly the truth going on in my life. It wasn’t until now, where I had gone through so many different things and really done some work on myself and really did heal some parts of myself to get to a point where I could welcome in something that was healthy and truly loving. Was I able to kind of feel safe enough to go, ‘Oh, I’ve been hiding a part of myself for so many years.’ It’s not that I haven’t just been being honest with everybody else, I haven’t been being honest with myself. I was digging into that as I was celebrating this incredible second chance and writing this music out of love and joy and happiness, and then it was like, but wow, what it took to get there.”
“You cannot be ready for something, I’ve learned in life,” she continued. “You cannot be ready for something you wish you were. You don’t understand what’s happening. It’s all falling apart, and you’re like, ‘Wait a minute. What's going on?’ Then you have to live a little and go through things and figure yourself out. The only way you can do that is by really digging deep and taking a cold hard look at yourself and your patterns and the things that you do, and then maybe you can get to a point where you have moments where you’re like, ‘Oh, oh, I get that. Oh, I was doing that. Oh, I needed to grow in this way. I needed to do that.’ It kind of all comes together. When you then get to another point in your life where you’re like, something really beautiful happens to you, are you able to go back and look at the things that were more challenging and more the growth moments?”
