Featuring her cover of KiKi Dee’s “I Got the Music In Me,” la Lopez dances her famous behind off while rocking several looks from her new collection for the retailer.

The American Idol judge, accompanied by some sharp-dressed male dancers, begins the clip in a pair of crisp white shorts and a sequined tank. After some strategic editing and sassy shimmies, she seamlessly changes into a colorful floral top, cropped jeans and sunny yellow heels.

After a few more dance moves, J.Lo pops up in summery white pants, a raspberry halter and white fedora. Next up: a cobalt jumper and shades. And, finally Lopez ends with a flowy yellow dolman-sleeved number and dangly earrings.

“Every look in this collection and even in this commercial is something that people know that I would wear, even though they are all very different,” Lopez said in a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot. “We really broke down what I love for this collection and for springtime. It was very kind of ’60s and ’70s inspired.”

J.Lo Graces the Cover of Glamour’s “WOTY” Issue…

She’s been “On the Floor” most of this year… And, now Jennifer Lopez is on the cover of Glamour’s Women of the Year issue.


It’s the exclamation point to banner year for the 42-year-old international superstar where la Lopez was basically everywhere.

She started off the year filling one of the vacant judges’ seats on “American Idol.” Months later she released the hit single “On the Floor,” which reached the top five in most countries around the world, including reaching number one in 18 countries. She followed up the single’s success by releasing her seventh studio album, “Love?”

But the love for all things J.Lo didn’t stop there… This year, Lopez was named the most beautiful person in People magazine’s annual issue. She launched a successful clothing line at Kohl’s and served as a spokesperson for Gucci, L’Oreal, Venus and Fiat.

Despite her seven-year marriage to Marc Anthony coming to an end this summer, Lopez seems to remain in great spirits, especially now that’s she’s being honored as an “All-Star Woman” for her numerous achievements.

For her Glamour cover story, Lopez was interviewed by her “Monster-in-Law” co-star Jane Fonda, who asked her what she’d learned about love and relationships over the past year.

” I’ve finally learned the biggest lesson of all: You’ve got to love yourself first,” responded Lopez. “You’ve got to be okay on your own before you can be okay with someone else. You’ve got to value yourself and know that you’re worth everything. And until you value yourself enough and love yourself enough to know that, you can’t really have a healthy relationship.”

Glamour‘s Women of the Year issue, which celebrates Lopez and 10 other all-star ladies, hits newsstands November 1.
