Readers Respond: Was Jennifer Lopez's Gladiator Dress Age-Appropriate?


Earlier today, we asked our Facebook fans whether they felt the gladiator-style dress Jennifer Lopez wore on American Idol Wednesday night was age-appropriate or not.

The results? An overwhelming yes.

Throughout the course of the day, we received over 150 comments -- most of which praised the 42-year-old J-Lo for showing off her amazing body.

Check out some of the highlights below, then post your thoughts on the dress in the comments below!

Also be sure to like Celebuzz on Facebook -- if you haven't already, that is!

Anca: It doesn't matter if it's age appropiate [sic] or not, it's all about the body and she looks stunning!

Catherine: Why not flaunt what she has. I would be proud to show my body off if I look like that at 42.

Yadira: No one has to know she's 42! She's rockin everything right now!

Lisa: I wouldnt hate what she's wearing if it just didn't have the cut outs. She does have an amazing body so a tight dress is fine but the cut outs are too much for her age

Gaby: Of course she can she has a banging body and she is so beautiful

Carroll: When you look that young & have a body like that, go for it.

Shena: She is Grown! Whatever she wants to wear is her business and not for me to judge.....but I thinks she looks good....42,52,62 if you have a body like that... do you!

Pixie: She works hard to keep her body in shape so she's fine to flash it around... If the outfit was completely trashy then yes maybe she should reconsider. We all want to feel confident in our bodies and thats exactly what she's doing :)

Haslinda: rebound from a failed marriage, she so deserving a time like this to show wat [sic] marc had lost, a beautilicious wife !

Arishay: Yes!!! There are younger girls that look horrible!!! Age has nothing to do with looking good. People at age 30 or 40 can look better in comparison to what they looked in high school years!!!

    She looks fantastic at the age of 40, I wish I could look like that. I'm 58 and have a killer body too, but I'm alittle more buff than her, a bodybuilder of course but not overly sized. And her abs are awesome in that dress and she can wear anything she wants, why not she's got the body for it!

    obviously the age is in your mind she doesn't look 40 at all, so if she looks good on it why she can't wear it. She looks awesome

    Possibly the nicest (and most age apporiate) dress i've ever seen her wear! maybe she is finally on her way too actually dressing for her age.

    it's going to be an interesting 21st century finally ,when so many hollyweird stars suddenly begin dying off like beastie boys members//, suddenly fame and the millions they spend on fashion won't seem very important and they'll be searchng to spend lthose millions instead on that whatever it is they think will extend their lives on this earth. these stars are just people.but they honor one another as though there's something more than human instlled //

    I completely disagree. What is disgusting about a woman being comfortable in her own body? I absolutely hate the phrase "age appropriate" I can understand if we are talking about a 12 year old child, but a grown woman should be able to wear whatever she feels comfortable and confident in.
