  • Jennifer Lopez - Is it time to cover up?

    Jennifer Lopez celebrated her 46th birthday at the weekend, wearing a daring little black dress with cut-out and see-through panels. Certainly no wallflower, J-Lo has always been proud of her enviable curves, and done her best to flaunt them at any given opportunity. And the diva certainly showed no signs of changing, as she snuggled up to her 28-year-old on/off toyboy boyfriend Casper Smart and cavorted on the dancefloor at the New York club in the fitted dress that appeared to show off more than it covered up. So, as she enters her late 40s, should J-Lo be thinking about opting for outfits with a little more material and a slightly more demure style? q
