Jennifer Lopez pulled out another amazing wardrobe during American Idol’s Motown-themed episodes on March 23rd 24th, and InStyle has all of the exclusive details! We caught up with her magnificent styling team, Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn to find out what she wore—and why. On Wednesday, Lopez wore a Rodarte for Opening Ceremony skirt, Dries Van Noten sequin top, Ruthie Davis shoes, and Stephen Webster jewelry. “Jennifer looks so great in light colors, and she loved the short flirty skirt,” Haenn told InStyle of the look. On Thursday, she reached for a black and gold dress and shoes by Gucci and jewelry by Amrita Singh. “We’ve been waiting for the perfect time to showcase this dress,” Zangardi explained, “Jennifer always looks so hot in Gucci! The gold chain detail was our favorite part.” Ours, too!
The Dries van Noten show was to die for! One of my favorite looks was a pale lilac coat over a sheer peach blouse with ombre wide-leg jeans. The subtle pastels combined with the sporty silhouette was gorgeous and wearable. I loved the entire show, which combined mannish elements, like crisp white shirts and oversize tuxedo jackets with softer, more feminine pieces like floral silk shorts and embellished pants.

Call 911: There’s a four alarm fashion fire! We’re heading up to San Francisco and setting up a pop-up shop in Fort Mason ‘s historic Firehouse June 18th or 19th. Christos Garkinos and the Decadestwo team have curated a special collection of pieces for their latest style adventure, hand-picked from the closets of our favorite consigners, such as consigner 4593—a design writer with inimitable style who recently relocated to San Francisco and managed to score some dazzling digs on the infamous Lombard Street. Christos sat down with her for a spot of tea and chatted about East Bay haunts from his former days as a SanFran resident, then they got down to serious business—editing her closet! They found some amazing pieces for the temporary shop including a metallic embroidered Dries Van Noten vest (left), a cropped golden jacket from Matthew Williamson (right), and a Spring 2005 Chanel boucle skirt suit (middle). For further information on the coming pop-up shop, visit our blog now!
Dries Van Noten‘s combination of a casual but reinvented sweatshirt with a ladylike full skirt and pumps looks so new to me! Dries’s prints are always gorgeous, and the longer length skirt looks just right. I love the mix of sporty and formal.
