GAL Star Style – Jennifer Lopez

One of my favorite celebrities and style icons is Jennifer Lopez, a singer, actress, mogul, mom, and of course, the newest judge on American Idol! The former “Fly Girl” and People Magazine’s “Most Beautiful Woman” is a lady who always dresses to impress. Read on for some easy fashion tips and suggestions, so that you too can dress like Jenny from the Block!

Whether she’s on the red carpet at the Grammy’s or American Idol, Jennifer knows how to show off her best assets…her legs! It’s important for woman to recognize what their body type is and which areas they should highlight the most.

For Ms. Lopez, it’s her legs, and she loves to wear mini dresses and shorts that are the perfect length to look both sexy and sophisticated. She balances her ensembles by pairing leg baring looks with long sleeves and tailored jackets.

These silk shorts from Express would look amazing on Jennifer, and on anyone who wants to be flirty and fabulous this summer!

A glamorous diva at heart, JLo loves to make a statement! And no matter how much sparkle she’s rockin’, she still manages to look classically chic. On the Venus red carpet, she paired a dazzling skirt with a neutral beige blouse.


For the American Idol finale, she looked stunning in a nude jumpsuit with just a hint of bling.


Take a cue from Jennifer when wearing metallics – go for subtle hints of sparkle and balance out sequins by wearing metallics with basic neutrals.

Even when running around with her twins, Jennifer always looks put together. A fashion forward mom, Jennifer keeps it simple in maxi dresses, shorts, and sandals.

GAL Star Style – Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon is not only an Academy Award winning actress and newlywed, but also a style savvy southern gal! This New Orleans native always hits the fashion mark, whether she’s running around town with her two kids, or accepting her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.


Her star style is impeccable, and fashionistas everywhere can definitely learn a thing or two from this woman on the go! As your Glam, Affordable, and Luxurious resource, I searched the internet to find the best sites to achieve Reese’s style on a budget. I didn’t have to look far once I discovered JCPenney, your one stop shop for fabulous celebrity looks for less!

Reese’s daytime style is California cool, with casual looks like a denim skirt, striped tee and red flats. Striped tees are a great basic for every woman because they’re classic and easy to wear. Women of all shapes and sizes can wear horizontal stripes too, despite what you might think. Just remember, the smaller the stripes the thinner you’ll look! Also, look for tops with diagonal stripes at the waist and hips, which has a slimming and body lengthening effect. This long sleeve top from JCP.com would look great with everything from shorts and jeans, to a sexy little mini. Take a cue from Reese and sport this Americana trend all year long!

It’s not a surprise that Reese’s favorite accessory is her signature fedora. Whether paired with a printed sun dress or a tank and miniskirt, Reese tops off many of her daytime looks with this laidback hat.

A fedora is a fun way to add a little attitude to an ordinary outfit, or when you’re having a bad hair day! Try one instead of a baseball cap for day, or as a chic accessory to top off your evening look. For an affordable take on Reese’s boho fedora, try this lightweight version from JCP.com!


The “Water for Elephants” star has a red carpet style that’s a statement of feminine elegance. Ladylike silhouettes and refined embellishments help to make Reese a red carpet favorite. Opting for gowns that fit to flatter, Reese shows off her figure best in sheath and a-line styles.

These two shapes will complement every woman, because they hug your body in all the right places. Sheath dresses are a sophisticated way to show off your curves, while a-line skirts cinch in your waist to create beautiful lines. This a-line dress from JCP.com features a soft metallic hue with feminine details, Reese’s ideal combination for the red carpet!Strapless Dress_JCP.com_74.99

Reese looked like a Hollywood princess at her recent nuptials to Jim Toth. Forever a romantic, Reese came down the aisle in a stunning, blush hued Monique Lhuillier gown with a Chantilly lace corset and tulle a-line skirt.

Reese’s bold move to wear color on her big day is quickly setting trends for future brides to be and prom goers alike! This delicate hue would look amazing on all skin types, as the pink tones help to bring out your natural radiance. When dressing for special occasions, don’t be afraid to go outside the box and try something new. The most important thing is to be comfortable, and wear what makes you feel beautiful, inside and out!
