Jennifer Lopez sure seems to have given herself quite the bit of press with this whole bringing your 4-year-old to Fashion Week thing. This is just the story that keeps on giving. Aside from the tot looking pretty bored during the event, Emme‘s pricey accessories were also noticed. But a German TV show reportedly got Jennifer to momsplain the decision to bring her kid to such an adult event in the first place. Her reasoning? There doesn’t seem to be any. Just a mother’s whim!
Celeb Baby Laundry quotes J.Lo as citing her daughter’s love of fashion as the incentive. And then she blabbers something about a “fantasy life”:
”I thought it would be a good idea. My daughter loves fashion – she’s four years old, but she loves clothes and dressing up, like all little girls. And so I thought: ‘Oh, wouldn’t it be nice to take her to the beautiful Chanel show?,’ Lopez told the German television show ‘Wetten, Dass’.
”It’s always so beautiful, kind of like a fantasy life. And I hadn’t been to a fashion show in a long time, and when I got there, I forgot that the press can kind of just run up to you.”
I suppose if Emme loved trucks and dirt, her daughter may have also been able to appreciate the “fantasy life” too. But Jenny From the Block forgetting what press is like? Doubtful! We’re talking about a women who has been well acquainted with fame for over two decades. She has about as much a chance of having “forgot” the tendencies of the press as I do on forgetting my own bank PIN.
And as for those expensive accessories? Turns out children aren’t exempt from being human billboards capable of pushing product for companies. Jennifer Lopez admitted during the same interview that both the brooch and the bag were a loan from Chanel. Seems that somebody in the PR department knew that cameras would be fixated on Jennifer’s daughter so why not promote promote promote? If they had it their way though, I doubt the human billboard would have done so much fidgeting.
