Paper magazine’s September issue is all about contemporary luxury, and the publication selected none other than Jennifer Lopez and Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing to represent that theme on the cover. According to the mag’s chief creative officer, Drew Elliott, “Luxury today is about perception—about the way we value handbags and human emotions with increasingly similar yardsticks.” Although we’re not sure that’s true across the board (and, hey, we love our handbags) we definitely understand the choice in cover stars. Both J.Lo and Balmain exude glamour, while also attracting the attention and affection of the masses. We’ll have to wait for the issue to hit newsstands to find out their thoughts on the matter, but until then, you can ogle what is arguably our favorite Lopez cover yet!
