Jennifer Lopez turns 42 today, July 24th, 2011.

Today is July 24th, 2011, and it also happens to be celeb mom Jennifer Lopez’s 42nd birthday! I know…it’s pretty hard to believe that Jennifer is in her 40s. She looks beyond amazing, doesn’t she?

Celebrating her birthday this weekend is no doubt bittersweet for Jen, considering that she just announced her split from husband Marc Anthony. While friends report that she is happy and ready to move on, it still must be tough to get over parting ways with the father of your children. Hopefully Jennifer sees her birthday this year as a new beginning, and a good way to kick off the next chapter in her life.

Jennifer Lopez is definitely a style icon, and she has been for over a decade. She always manages to turn heads wherever she goes, and honestly, I don’t think she could look bad if she tried. Every time she shows up for an event, people anticipate what she is going to be wearing.

Jennifer has proven that she likes to take risks with her fashion choices, and as I flipped through different photos of her over the years, I noticed a trend of seeing her in skin-baring outfits. Jen knows how to flaunt what she’s got, and she’s not afraid to show off her best assets to the world.
