We love to see stars photographed in sexy bikinis, but what we love even more than that is to see these photographs prior to photoshop edits: to see the true celebrity, not the digital representation. Not only does this give us respect for their hard work at the gym by being able to see their true bodies, but it gives us hope to know that just because we aren’t airbrushed doesn’t mean we’re not the ideal. American Idol and Q’Viva! The Chosen judge, Jennifer Lopez has had her fair share of controversy lately surrounding her back-up dancer boyfriend so soon after split from hubby Marc Anthony. We’re sure the latin beauty is immune to the controversy and tabloid stories surrounding her personal life at this point, but the controversy about these newly released bikini shots is nothing but positive news.
It’s great to see the mother of twins photographed in a chic cream bikini with a boho floppy hat and no photoshop re-touching. This mother’s rock hard abs are something to admire and a picture we may all want to put up on our refrigerators as motivation. The talented J-Lo who is famously admired for her back side, is photographed from behind while looking over her shoulder, a strong pose showing off her feminine physique. The release of these photos will hopefully spark some generational change throughout media that pictures don’t need to be re-touched so heavily, true beauty is the best.
We love Jennifer’s ensemble for this shoot. Floppy boho hats are an essential accessory for any day at the beach or just walking around town and Jennifer pulls off the look beautifully. Transfer her bikini look flawlessly with the Sexy Back Kelsey Bikini by L*Space Swimwear. This cream hued two piece swimsuit is the same color as J-Lo’s and also features gold hardware at the hips. While Jennifer’s triangle top ties at the neck and back, this Sexy Back bikini features a unique racerback silhouette with matching gold hardware up the back and an adjustable front tie closure. This top is excellent for supporting small chests and gives a look of more ‘up top.’ Pair this bikini with a floppy sun hat and you’re ready to steal the spotlight right from under J-Lo.
