Jennifer Lopez at the World Music Awards, Too Much or Just Right?

Jul 3 2010 • by Roselle

I think JLo has special powers that some other celebrities don’t. The lady can rock even the scariest of outfits and get away with it. But I also think there are some things even her special powers can’t handle.

Take for example, when she attended the World Music Awards in Monaco last May. The Latina singer and actress went to the event in a daringly sexy split front leopard printed long number by Roberto Cavalli:

With the dress alone, I think she was able to rock it, despite the fact that we’ve already seen her wear a similar one before (a Versace).  But the turning point for  her outfit was the accessory she paired it with – a snakeskin Daniel Swarovski clutch. What do you think of the pairing? Too much, or just right?

Well, personally, like I said, JLo can handle scary things. But I think wearing two scary (exotic) things at the same time was a little bit too much for her. A classic black  or charcoal gray clutch would have done the trick:

As for her Daniel Swarovski snakeskin clutch, there was really nothing wrong with it. That clutch would have looked great and stood out rightfully as a statement piece had she worn a much more subdued and solid number, like a black dress for instance.
