While PAPER Magazine may have controversially put Kim Kardashian's nude on their cover, they took a different approach while shooting superstar Jennifer Lopez.
The performer graces the pages of the glossy magazine for its Luxe in Flux issue, alongside wonderkid designer Oliver Rousteing.
The mum-of-two is most often seen in slinky, backless evening gowns or revealing stage costumes, or as she puts it "little slutty dresses".
For the shoot, the 46-year-old singer was kitted out in new season garments from Rousteing's latest collection for luxury label Balmain.
J-Lo admitted that she likes her clothes to feel fitted, particularly when she is on stage, citing the likes of Cher and Diana Ross as her inspirations.
"Pop culture and fashion have always had a correlation, from old Hollywood to contemporary music. As a performer, I know that clothes are an expression of the music I create or the character I play."
"To me, it's stuff that's very custom or made for you or fitted -- that's how I like all my clothes to feel," she added.
"When I think of luxury, whether it's a house or a car or any luxury item, it's like something special about it that feels like you. I like things that are super trendy. I like things that look like they could've been in this era or that era, but it still feels modern."
However, ultimately the superstar maintained that her definition of luxury was freedom of choice and "quiet moments" away from her busy life which she can spend with her children and family.
