Lopez, one of the busiest women in Hollywood, has previously made her mark in the fashion world by collaborating with brands like Giuseppe Zanotti.

J.Lo., currently enjoying the success of her All I Have residency in Las Vegas, will team with brand co-founder Paul Marciano, and will star in the brand’s upcoming Spring 2018 marketing campaign.

“When I got the call from Paul Marciano asking me to become the new Guess Girl, I was thrilled and excited to be a part of such an iconic brand that I have loved since I was a teenager,” she said in a statement. When I look back at early Guess campaigns through the years, you see all of these beautiful models and iconic images that Paul has created. It is a tremendous compliment to have been selected for Guess’ spring 2018 campaign.”

Lopez joins current Guess campaign stars including singer Camila Cabello and rapper A$AP Rocky.

Her campaign was shot in an elegant villa by fashion photographer Tatiana Gerusova and draws inspiration from her life as a performer and actress.

“Jennifer Lopez is a Guess Girl’s dream! She is an accomplished artist, she is iconic, and sensual,” added Marciano.

“Jennifer’s impact and influence continues to grow and this campaign celebrates the notion that women get more beautiful and talented as they gain life experience. Her beauty and class shine through this campaign and I am so excited Jennifer accepted to be our new Guess Girl and at the same time ‘Femme Fatale‘ of Marciano.”

By working with the label, Lopez, who was recently named one of the highest paid women in the music business by Forbes, follows in the footsteps of Claudia Schiffer, Drew Barrymore, Adriana Lima and Kate Upton.

Gisele Bündchen: Forbes’ Highest-Paid Latina Model

She may not top the list, but Gisele Bündchen is still on top…

After 15-years as the world’s highest-paid model, the 37-year-old Brazilian supermodel drops to No. 2 on Forbes’ yearly list of the highest-paid models, behind Kendall Jenner.

But Bündchen is still standing tall, as the high-ranking Latina on the list, with earnings totaling $17.5 million.

Despite retiring from the runway in 2015, she still makes millions from contracts, including a lucrative fragrance deal with Carolina Herrera, as well as campaigns for Arezzo shoes and Vivara jewelry in her native country.

Bündchen has appeared on more than 1,200 magazine covers in her two-decade career, and she earned more money than any other model between 2002 – 2016.

The only other Latina in the Top 10, Bündchen’s compatriot Adriana Lima.

The 36-year-old Brazilian supermodel, the longest-running Angel in Victoria’s Secret history, comes in at No. 4 with earnings of $10.5 million.

Lima first strutted her stuff for Victoria’s Secret in 2000. Her seniority earns her a supersized deal with the lingerie maker.

She’s also the face of Sportmax and Marc Jacobs fragrances, and she hosts the hair and makeup competition show American Beauty Star on Lifetime.

Bündchen, who announced her retirement from the runway in 2014, continued to reign over Forbes’s annual earnings list, banking $30.5 million in the year from June 2015 to May 2016, due in large part to lucrative fashion deals with brands like Chanel and Carolina Herrera, as well as sales from her own lingerie and skincare line.

Bündchen easily trumped her nearest competitor, Adriana Lima, her fellow countrywoman.

The 35-year-old Brazilian supermodel came in a distant second with $10.5 million in earnings.

Kim Kardashian‘s half-sister Kendall Jenner is tied with Karlie Kloss for third place with $10 million, while another social media favorite, Gigi Hadid, made her debut on the countdown, at No. 5, sharing the spot with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley with $9 million.

Bündchen Tops Forbes’ List of the Highest Paid Models of 2015

Gisele Bündchen is beautiful woman on top…

The 35-year-old Brazilian supermodel and entrepreneur tops Forbes‘ annual list of the highest paid models of 2015.

Gisele Bündchen

With an income of $44 million dollars, Bündchen’s salary is a league ahead of Cara Delevingne‘s income, which at $9 million has them tied for the second spot.

Bündchen’s earnings are slightly smaller than the $47 million she earned last year. She’s been atop the rankings since 2002.

The versatile Brazilian beauty continues to clock lucrative beauty and fragrance contracts with Chanel and Carolina Herrera, supplementing those money makers with prestigious high fashion campaigns for Emilio Pucci and Balenciaga. Gisele’s Under Armour advertisement, which pictured her attacking a punch bag while social media commentary blared in the background, was perhaps the most impactful this year. Gisele has turned her name into a brand: She gets a cut of sales from the jelly sandals she designs for Brazilian shoemaker Grendene, while her line of Hope lingerie — Gisele Bündchen Intimates — also plumps up her paycheck.

But Bündchen isn’t the only Latina to make this year’s list…

Adriana Lima comes in at No. 3 on this year’s list, with a reported earnings of $9 million.

Joan Smalls comes in at No. 6, with a reported earnings report of $5.5 million.

Alessandra Ambrosio comes in at No. 8, with a reported earnings report of $5 million.

Here’s a preview of the most successful pretty people:

  1. Gisele Bundchen ($44 million)
  2. Cara Delevingne ($9 million)
  3. Adriana Lima ($9 million)
  4. Doutzen Kroes ($7.5 million)
  5. Natalia Vodianova ($7 million)
  6. Miranda Kerr ($5.5 million)
  7. Joan Smalls ($5.5 million)
  8. Lara Stone ($5 million)
  9. Alessandra Ambrosio ($5 million)
  10. Candice Swanepoel ($5 million)
  11. Karlie Kloss ($5 million)

Lima Lip Syncs to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” in Sexy Victoria’s Secret Video

There’s no denying Adriana Lima can strut her stuff on the runway… But did you know she can also lip-sync for her life?

The 33-year-old Brazilian supermodel and actress, a Victoria’s Secret Angel since 2000, and her fellow Victoria’s Secret model give Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” the Angel treatment in the teaser video for the lingerie brand’s annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

In the highly entertaining clip, Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel, Doutzen Kroes, Karlie Kloss and Lily Aldridge show off their dance moves while mouthing along to Swift’s massive hit.

The video was filmed in London during the rehearsals for the brand’s popular fashion show.

Swift has given her stamp of approval to Lima and company’s lip-syncing skils, sharing the video with her Twitter followers, and writing “Anddddd *swoon*.”

The video has already garnered more than 2.2 million views on YouTube.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show aired on Tuesday night (December 9) at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.

Bündchen: The World’s Top-Earning Model of 2014

There’s no doubt Gisele Bündchen is a top model…

The 33-year-old Brazilian supermodel has been declared the highest-earning model of 2014, according to Forbes.

Gisele Bundchen

The financial magazine estimates Bündchen’s fortune at “$47 million before taxes and fees in the last 12 months.”

It’s the eighth year in a row that Bündchen, who was named the new face of Chanel No. 5 in May, has topped the list of top-earning models.

Bündchen’s lucrative contracts with fashion brands like H&M and Chanel, as well asgigs with Pantene, have helped her build a massive empire.

Bündchen, who is married to NFL quarterback Tom Brady, far outpaced the next highest-earning models, Doutzen Kroes and Adriana Lima, whose earnings were pegged at $8 million each.

Lima, a Victoria’s Secret Angel since 2000, is the lingerie giant’s longest-running model.

The two Kates — Kate Moss and Kate UptonMiranda Kerr and Liu Wen all pulled in $7 million.

Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl Upton is the highest-earning newcomer on the list.

Meanwhile, Alessandra Ambrosio comes in at No. 8 on the list. With her own clothing line and deals with H&M and Victoria’s Secret, the Brazilian supermodel raked in $5 million in 2014.

Bündchen Named One of the Hottest Women of 2013

She may have just given birth to her second child last month, but Gisele Bündchen is still being hailed as one of the hottest women of 2013…

Men’s Health has named the 32-year-old Brazilian supermodel as of the hottest women of the year. Bündchen, who comes in at No. 9, is the only Latina to make the Top 10.

Gisele Bundchen

“She’s like a fashion model blitzkrieg; unstoppable, and easily destroying the competition. She’s been so busy that she purportedly turned down 20 million dollars to be the spokeswoman for Clonaid, the human cloning company. Which, on the one hand, was probably a smart business decision,” says the magazine “(The Guinness Book of Records credits her as ‘the world’s richest supermodel,’  so she doesn’t need the money.) But still, can you imagine if Clonaid was able to use their cloning technology to build an army of Bündchens? There could be a Bündchen in every home! Okay, probably not realistic, but we can dream, can’t we?”

Other Latinas who’ve made the list include Jessica Alba, Adriana Lima and Sofia Vergara. Katy Perry topped the list, beating out Esquire‘s Sexiest Woman Alive Mila Kunis, AskMen‘s Most Desirable Woman Jennifer Lawrence, and Maxim‘s hottest woman Bar Refaeli.

Here’s a look at the Latinas on Men’s Health’s “The Hottest Women of 2013” list:
