Dear Jennifer Lopez,
We love you here at Stylelist. We've loved you since your Fly Girl days, since you were "Jenny From The Block," and even through your many tumultuous relationships. Your work ethic is to be admired, and your body is sick (in a good way, we love curves!), and your warm personality on "American Idol" is something we tune in for.
But it's time to come clean about your addiction to sparkles. We understand that sequins look great on the stage and on the red carpet -- catching the light and all that. But we are pretty sure that you'd be the center of attention no matter what you wore.
It's clear that you're a fashion icon. The green Versace dress at the Grammy Awards in 2000 is cemented in style history. We loved your look in the "Bennifer" days -- the Valentino couture one-shouldered mint gown was a stunning departure from the headbands and midriff-baring tops from the "Sweetface" era -- and don't even get us started on that Chanel Haute Couture gown that you wore to the 2001 Oscars (even if it was a little sheer).
Today we are here to ask you to leave the sparkles behind. The bedazzled drop-crotch pants were a new low, and we know you're better than that. Don't go the way of some legends who just can't give up the sparkly, stagey outfits even in their later years.
You're no one-trick pony, in terms of style, or anything else for that matter. Now show us what you've got.
