A Feisty Jennifer Lopez Gets Cocky for V Magazine Sports Issue

March 1, 2012


It’s Jennifer Lopez like you’ve never seen her before on the cover of the ‘Sports Issue’ of V Magazine and somehow, we love it.  Depicted as a boxer on the cover of the magazine, a feisty J-Lo manages to make boxing gear look ultra sexy, even the men’s jockstrap, which according to Robin Givhan, who interviewed the actress for the article, was chosen by Jennifer herself.

When given her choice of groin protectors — those daunting don’t-mess-with-me-anatomical cups– in black (the men’s version) or red (the women’s), she preferred the men’s style. “I thought it was more graphic.”

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.

Jennifer’s cover and editorial were styled by Carine Roitfeld and shot by Mario Testino.  Her hair on the cover appears to be short but we’re guessing it’s probably pulled back and styled to appear cropped.  If she ever chooses to go short, we really think she’ll look stunning.
