Jennifer Lopez is the chosen covergirl for Vogue’s annual April 2012 Shape Issue as captured by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
Speaking about her recent split from husband Marc Anthony, her many business ventures into fashion and decor (a line at Kohl’s for clothing, accessories and home decor), as well as keeping busy with music, she also speaks about how she maintains her impressive figure. Stating that she is a size 6 (only a size 8 when she overeats), the 42-year-old Lopez looks fiery and dazzling in beautiful red designs from Bottega Veneta on the cover (Spring/Summer 2012 collection), a Valentino strapless jumpsuit with rose detail (below), and a Michael Kors cashmere tank top and cotton and silk skirt (below).
