Journal de Mode- Jennifer Lopez Flaunts The Goods In Boxing Gear
Styled by the fabulous ex-Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld, Jenny from the block is on this months V Magazine cover looking quite endowed. It is hard to miss the black groin protector and Jennifer’s dead on “come at me” glare, who knew her role in the movie Enough would come in handy for a photo shoot someday?
Seeing as the newly separated mom of twins is getting’ her groove back with a boy toy decades her junior we are happy to see the old sexy provocative Jennifer again. Apparently J-Lo studied Krav Maga for her 2002 hit Enough, a noncompetitive eclectic self-defense system developed in Israel that involves striking techniques, wrestling and grappling.
She looks confident and poses for the camera in next to nothing which is a good thing considering she is probably in the best shape of her life. Mario Testino had the hard task of shooting the all the under boob action as well as a serious bulge.
Howard Stern’s main lady on the radio Robin Givhan interviewed Jennifer for V and had some cool little tidbits to share on the editorial,
“I’ve always felt like a tough girl from the Bronx,” she says. “But I have a soft core.”
When given her choice of groin protectors—those daunting don’t-mess-with-me-anatomical cups— in black (the men’s ver- sion) or red (the women’s), she preferred the men’s style. “I thought it was more graphic,” she says simply.
Was it that straightforward, really? A woman in full-blown menswear even now has an added element of strength. A cross- gender image in boxing garb suggests a heightened sense of self-assuredness, power, and swagger. “It did make me feel tougher,” she admits.
