J Lo Brought Executive Realness To Balmain’s Front Row
Streamed on every digital platform – from TikTok to LinkedIn – Balmain’s spring/summer 2021 show invited a virtual front row to enjoy a first look at Olivier Rousteing’s collection. Naturally, Jennifer Lopez took front and centre position.
On the evening of the show, which saw Rousteing send glitter-festooned dresses and neon co-ords down the runway, J Lo was seen but not heard. But now, we know what the pop superstar wore for the occasion. Sharing a “flashback” via Instagram, the singer posted a series of close-ups and behind-the-scenes photos for us to see her glam squad’s work.
Wearing the brand’s strong-shoulder blazer and matching dress in a monogram print, J Lo exuded executive realness. Accessorised with a matching clutch and black patent leather heels, the Hustlers actor stuck to her signature style with a high ponytail, stacked gold rings and playfully patterned nails on show.
Before his couture show in the summer, Rousteing spoke of relevancy and change. “What’s going to be important for tomorrow is not only how you present fashion, but how you made it,” he told British Vogue. “It will need to stand for more than fashion. Then, you’ll see which designers and magazines are relevant.” According to J Lo, Balmain is as relevant today as it was on that glitzy virtual evening.
