Jennifer Lopez dresses up as a boxer in a new shoot with V magazine
She’s always had an enviable athletic physique, but now Jennifer Lopez has showed off what tip-top shape she’s truly in with a sporty new shoot in V magazine where she dresses up as a boxer.
The American Idol judge can be seen striking a series of boxing poses in a 12-page spread, shot by superstar photographer Mario Testino, for the special sports issue of the style title.
In some images J.Lo wears a cropped Emporio Armani vest top, padded boxing gloves and a full-on men’s groin protector, which creates a tough look that were not used to seeing from the glamorous star.
In another series of black and white shots the actress can be seen snarling at the camera wearing nothing but a pair of white boxing gloves. Greased back hair and a strong dark brow complete the androgynous look.
Elsewhere in the shoot, styled by former magazine editor Carine Roitfeld, J.Lo mixes the likes of an embellished Prada jacket, a bejewelled bodysuit by Dolce & Gabbana and an edgy Alexander Wang leather jacket with more sportswear.
The pictures, which hit newsstands with the magazine next week, are a stark contrast to her usually glamorous style, most recently seen at last weekend’s Oscars where she dazzled in a figure-hugging striped gown by Zuhair Murad.
Visit the V magazine website to see the complete shoot.
