Queen Titania, is that you? Pardon the Midsummer Night's Dream reference, but it's the only way to describe Jennifer Lopez's latest look, a plunging sage green gown and purple cape made of artificial flowers. The overall effect is simply fairycore, in the best way.
The Ellie Saab haute couture look, which Lopez wore to Paris Couture Week, begins with a Greek-goddess-like dress that's open almost to the navel, secured with a decorative belt. What looks like layers of chiffon in the skirt create an airy, relaxed silhouette.
But the real showstopper is the cape, which combines two natural elements to create one piece. It appears to be crafted from feathers but arranged to form flowers, so that Jennifer Lopez is at once blooming and about to take flight. While most capes bring heaviness and protection from the cold, this piece couldn't be more springtime, which is apropos, given that Lopez was attending the spring-summer 2024 show.
One more time for the cape, please! Tiny gems add a bit of sparkle.
At the Schiaparelli show earlier in the week, the “This Is Me…Now” singer showed up in another handcrafted couture piece, a white coat that, she explained on Instagram, was “made of 7,000 real rose petals kept fresh and alive by sugar water, also known as hummingbird nectar. Designed especially for me by @DanielRoseberry for @Schiaparelli Couture 2024. Excited for this journey into my Hearts + Flowers Era.”
The Hearts + Flowers Era is definitely in full swing, and may have kicked off right at the beginning of the year, when Lopez attended the Golden Globes in a baby pink gown with sleeves that looked like rose bouquets. Truly cannot wait to see how she incorporates sculpted flowers into her outerwear next!
