“I have a certain sensibility about the way I dress and design, and I just kind of handed that to him. People really associate me with sparkle and a little bit of street edge and things like that. I wanted to make sure the collection had that, but then some [styles] feel very glam and high-end fashion.”
And of course the ageless beauty couldn’t help but reminisce over her different looks!
“If you hear a song from a certain time and you’re like, Oh, my God!,’ it takes you back to that period in your life. I do the same thing with my closet. I walk in and I see a hat or a pair of shoes or a coat, and I go, Wow! I remember I was wearing that the day this happened, or I was walking down the street; or I heard this or my mom said that, or my boyfriend’ You know what I mean? And I was dating so-and-so’ I love hoops, jeans, boots, and sparkle. If you look back to my first red-carpet days, it’s short, sparkly Versace dresses. I know everybody knows the green jungle dress, but I’m more about Versace’s chain mail and Swarovski crystal dresses, which I’ve been doing since back then.”
One very special memory? The Alexander McQueen fur coat she wore to the hospital to give birth to her twins, Max and Emme:
“It was in the middle of a snowstorm, and I wore this big white fur coat. I was huge, and it was the only coat that would fit me. Every time I see that coat, I think of the day my kids were born.”
So, are you even surprised Jen’s daughter would be as into fashion as her momma is??
“She loves fashion. She was wearing my shoes as soon as she started walking. She’s actually learning to sew already. Who knows? We may have a little designer on our hands.”
Well we’re definitely going to be super jealous when her 8-year-old gets her own collection!
Until then, ch-ch-check out the sexy starlet’s spread in the gallery (above)!
