9. Barry King Photoshoot – 1997
Lopez took advantage of all the publicity she was getting in 1997 by doing even more photo shoots. As she was getting more and more well-known in the film industry, more and more photographers were fighting for the opportunity to shoot her. Some of these photographers were extremely well-known, like Barry King.
Barry King is a Los Angeles-based photographer who has shot tons of celebrities during his career, like Christian Bale, Cher, Robert Downey Jr., and many more. But much like Jennifer Lopez, he was just getting stared back in the mid-90’s. Jennifer Lopez was a perfect opportunity for him to shoot someone who he knew would be extremely famous one day, and this would help him in his career as well. The pictures have a definite sexual vibe to them. As you can tell, there is a trend emerging here:
Jennifer Lopez’s photo shoots keep getting sexier and sexier, and involve less and less clothing. This trend would continue up to present day. Was it just the fact that the 90’s were a period of increased sexualization compared to previous years? Or was this a conscious effort by Lopez to gain more and more publicity? In any case, these pictures are some of the sexiest pictures of a young Jennifer Lopez.
