Jennifer Lopez wants to feel "sexy".

The singer-and-actress - who recently announced her split from third husband Marc Anthony, father of her three-year-old twins, Max and Emme - explained she wants to have a "modern" look and be comfortable in her clothes at the same time.

She said: "I'm a mom. I work. I want comfort. But I want to feel sexy and modern. I think most women want the same things."

The 42-year-old beauty recently appeared as a guest fashion editor for O, The Oprah magazine, which featured eight models wearing clothes from her upcoming collection for Kohl's and Jennifer explained it is "fulfilling" to have people compliment her on the garments.

She added: "This is the fulfilling part. To have women tell me, 'This is so comfortable, it fits so well.' "

Throughout the shoot, which featured Jennifer also wearing looks from her Kohl's collection, she gave tips to the models about posing for the camera and also directed hair and makeup.

Adam Glassman, creative director of the publication, stated it is "great" that Jennifer can teach models how to copy her style.

He told People magazine: "O is often the go-to magazine for lines that want to do an exclusive first look. It's so great to have her teach women how to get a kind of everyday glamour like hers."
