Jennifer Lopez is now more than ever a household name brand. She has gone from fly to fabulous -- her relationships, philanthropic work, movies, albums and fashions keep her in the headlines constantly. Currently you can see Jennifer in the much anticipated comedy film, What To Expect When You're Expecting.

For the past two seasons of American Idol, Lopez, 42, has been in our living rooms on a weekly basis. Rumor has it that this year was her last time sitting on the judges panel of the popular reality show. However, the latin beauty is never too far from the spotlight as her world tour kicks off July 14th in Montreal. 

It's no secret that Jennifer loves fashion. Her favorite brands range from Marchesa to Louboutin. During her career, Lopez has launched a few fashion lines including J. Lo by Jennifer Lopez and Sweetface. In 2011 she and then husband, Marc Anthony, launched a joint fashion line with retailer Kohls. Since launching her first perfume, Glow by J.Lo, in September of 2002, 17 scents have followed. This includes her most recent perfume, Glowing, which launched this past spring and is a tribute to her inaugural scent. In addition to representing her own brands, Jennifer endorses a handful of products and brands including: L'Oréal, Gillette Women's products, FIAT and TOUS jewelry.

Knowing and understanding trends in fashion is what makes Jennifer a style icon. She effortlessly keeps her look on the cutting edge while maintaining a timeless signature style.
