VOGUE/Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott

Who better to cover Vogue's annual shape issue, than La Lopez?

Jenny from the Block showed off her enviable curves in some of the hottest designer duds, including a Valentino strapless jumpsuit and a Michael Kors cashmere tank top, while posing for her second Vogue cover -- but it's not just her shape that has our attention!

The American Idol judge has had quite a busy year after splitting with hubby Marc Anthony, dropping a few hit singles, and romancing a much younger man -- 18 years her junior! -- so this superstar has quite a lot to talk about!

Jen says of ex-hubby Anthony, who still helps her "believe" in herself:

    “He always told me what a beautiful voice I have. He was like, ‘It’s in there; you just gotta let it out. It’s a confidence thing with you.’ Then all of a sudden one day I was like, I’m good at this! Oh, man! People are not giving me jobs because they feel sorry for me! I am an actress. I am a singer. I am a performer. That’s what I do! Once I started giving myself a little credit, the whole world opened up.”

The lovely Latina also confessed on being a lover by nature:

    “By nature I am not tough, believe it or not... I am a lover. And with my kids I am even softer. I realize with my son, I have to sometimes be tough, especially now when he’s pushing boundaries. With my daughter, I can get a little stern with her and she pretty much will listen. But my son will just scream and yell and run. I’m like, Aaaaah, what do I do with this?!”

Lopez also dished of her current beau, Casper, "He’s adorable. But you already see that... He really is. He’s a good egg. I don’t want to talk about it too much. It’s my private thing.” How sweet!
