To me this collection has the sex appeal of Miss Marple. So I just don't get it. Jlo made her image on sex appeal, specifically her a$$. Confusing...

I don't think it's that terrible....
but there is just nothing very orignal in the collection.
She's redoing what other "real designers" have already done,
it's basically an expensive knock off line.

I don't get the trailer...
She should have used it last year. Her collection then was much trashier.

why the sea of negative comments?

i thought it wasn't half bad...and that cream mohair (?) coat with the drawstring hem..some 'designers" don't even parade that on their runways...

i do agree that j lo doesn't need a runway show, there are people who need it more than her...yes, i definitely agree

Precisely.

I much like some of the pieces... I think despite some of the negatism, some pieces could come out quite polished if paired with the right things...

Not bad. I like, actually.

This stuff is fine but really no better than knock-off items you can find done by in-store labels like Macy's Inc.
I have to disagree with you. Every designer shows their line. That's part of the business in the same way there are movie screenings and album listening parties. There are plenty of designers (some of whom fit your description above) who have runway shows that we don't know about simply because they are not famous. So to say that Sweetface doesn't deserve a show is kind of ridiculous. I would agree that Sweetface doesn't deserve the huge amount of recognition but the owner is famous, so there's nothing we can do about that. Disclaimer: I am not a fan of Jennifer Lopez or a Sweetface customer.

I think this collection is a much better effort than last season which was simply a bunch of clothes thrown into a huge hype machine.

I don't think this is so bad, it would be good to see some of them closer up, like the shoes.

ok. i'm w/susie & soft !
& i'd wear a few outfits w/no qualms ;]
tht cream trench w/skinny trousers is v.adorable
obv. she didn't 'design' this
so it's a rehash of a few recent key trends . . . in particular 'volume'
bubble hems . . skinny trousers . . . empire line tops

i see nothing trashy about this collection...
i would probably reserve that for heatherette or maybe baby phat...:p

i just wonder if someone posted these pics without saying who the designer was what people's opinions would be...

i think her last season was pretty adventurous, if not well recieved. She obviously learned her lesson...did she hire a ghost designer?

And what's with the nails?!? You can't have 'refined beauty' and 'bronx trashbag' in the same outfit!
