Whenever people ask me why I'm eating a salad or holding off on that extra piece of chocolate, or what my fitness goals are, I hit 'em with two words: Jennifer Lopez. This diva not only embodies #goals when it comes to a career and diversifying your coinage, but she can also slay a red carpet with a few pieces of thread and a glam gaze into the cameras -- all while being a mother of 9-year-old twins, Emme and Max. Lopez's head-turning dress at the 2017 Billboard Latin Music Awards only reiterates in my mind that moms can dip and do it like no other and serve MAJOR goals along with some serious leg. #IAintMadatIt

And if you thought this black number was too haute for cameras, take a look at the Julien MacDonald dress Jennifer wore during her performance of her new song "Mirate" (off her upcoming Spanish album) that was so good, ex-husband Marc Anthony gave Jen a standing ovation. (He's also a producer on the album.) Here she is in the silvery gown, posing with her Telemundo Star and Social Artist of the Year awards:

Listen -- I get that some people will look at this outfit and think it's too much and/or inappropriate ... but I can appreciate and celebrate it. Jennifer Lopez is a badass in so many ways, and gives me hope -- whether I'm being too optimistic because it will never happen -- that I, as a mama of two, can have the confidence and ability to rock a fierce number like this if I so choose.

J.Lo is and will always be the queen of pushing the envelope on the red carpet.

So, let this be a lesson and reminder to everyone who tries to put mommies in a box: Just because we have children doesn't mean we can't teach you a thang or two about serving life through fashion and other outlets. (*Snap*)
