Jennifer Lopez knows high heels. And how could she not, considering shes spent the last 20 years parading up and down red carpets at various events?
Even when not attending her various A-list engagements, shes busy dancing up a storm on stage, rivaling pop stars half her age, all in heels that would make video most womens ankles give out at first sight. So designing a new collection of shoes in collaboration with Giuseppe Zanotti came naturally to her as did toasting the collection in a pair of her own heels on Thursday night at Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills.
While she may not be able to tell you exactly how many shoes she has in her closet ( and weve toured it its a lot), the pop star is clearly passionate about the subject matter and her partner in crime. With an artist like Giuseppe, whos so skilled and its all about the detail, you learn so much.
In terms of the aesthetic for the really fun collaboration, she wanted to match her own personal style: Its feminine, its sexy. If we were going to do a collection that was Giuseppe for Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Lopez for Giuseppe it had to have those elements.

Its not just feminine and sexy, though, its also very personal: All baby the styles are named after important women in her life. I just wanted to use all my familys names, she said.
Giuseppes like, We need names, and I was like Okay, I have a bunch of names! My family is my stability theyre so solid for me and when you think of shoes you think of being grounded.
There was a connection there for. So I took my cousin Tiana, my sisters Leslie, Lynda, daughter Emme and everybody else and just decided I was gonna honor them with that.
Lynda wrote me and was like Theres a shoe named after me?! I said, I wanted to name that one after me, but I named it after you!'. As for her favorite of her creations, she says it would have to be the Leslie (which shes modeling above) because Its just the sleekest and sexiest and most minimal, and the color of itblush pink with the crystal details is very unique.
Its something I would wear so much. But even more than the shoes themselves, she adds, My favorite part was just spending time together. Being able to talk to somebody who does this about what they do was like an honor and a blessing and a good time.
