There's more than one reason to give Jennifer Lopez major props for landing an iconic fashion campaign with Guess.
It was announced this week that J.Lo is officially a Guess Girl, with a beautiful black and white ad that captured her looking as fierce as ever.
“When I got the call from Paul Marciano asking me to become the new Guess Girl, I was thrilled and excited to be a part of such an iconic brand that I have loved since I was a teenager,” Lopez said of the opportunity in a statement. “When I look back at early Guess campaigns through the years, you see all of these beautiful models and iconic images that Paul has created. It is a tremendous compliment to have been selected for Guess’ Spring 2018 campaign.”
The campaign celebrates life experience, and with Lopez's impressive résumé, it's no wonder why she was selected.
"Jennifer Lopez is a Guess Girl’s dream! She is an accomplished artist, she is iconic, and sensual," Marciano, co-founder of Guess, said. "Jennifer’s impact and influence continues to grow and this campaign celebrates the notion that women get more beautiful and talented as they gain life experience. Her beauty and class shine through this campaign and I am so excited Jennifer accepted to be our new Guess Girl and at the same time ‘Femme Fatale’ of Marciano."
And the coolest part of it all is that Lopez is making history by being the oldest woman to be given the Guess Girl title at a fresh 48 years old.
According to Vogue, the second oldest to model for a Guess campaign was Claudia Schiffer, who was 41 years old when she participated in the brand's 30th anniversary ads in 2012.
This is a huge deal, especially when you consider that most Guess models don't look a day over 19. But of course, we all know Lopez can go toe to toe with any young supermodel.
J.Lo is not only a pro at smashing glass ceilings for Latinas and women in general, she's also busting ageist myths.
