How the stars are giving back.
No matter where Jennifer Lopez goes, she absolutely glows! 

J.Lo looked simply smashing at the Samsung Hope for Children gala at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City, where a star-studded event helped raise funds for children’s health and education efforts. Last year, the gala raised over $1.2 million! 

The philanthropist, singer, dancer, actress and American Idol judge recently took on yet another enterprising adventure.

She and hubby Marc Anthony are bringing their fashion prowess to the masses thanks to a new line they’re developing with Kohl’s that will arrive in stores this fall. The couple is designing everything from dresses to shoes to jewelry — all the way to a Jennifer Lopez Home Collection, which offers the opportunity to dry off with J.Lo towels and jet-set around the world with Lopez-inspired luggage. Watch the official announcement video here.

On the music front, Jen’s new album Love? has been released to rave reviews. Billboard says she’s “got her groove back” by making a “dramatic return to the spotlight.” No matter what world she dips her Chanel heels in, she conquers all!
