The trailer for Hustlers begins with Jennifer Lopez at a pole in a pair of plexiglass, ultrathick platform heels. Slated for release this September, the film is an adaptation of writer Jessica Pressler’s 2015 New York magazine feature titled “The Hustlers at Scores,” and the leg-swooping J. Lo stars along with Constance Wu, Keke Palmer, Lizzo, and Cardi B. The story goes something like this: A group of strippers band together to seek revenge on the lying, cheating, greedy Wall Street misogynists who frequent their club at night and take from the poor during the day. The women start stealing the customers’ credit cards and cash and using it for themselves, whether to help out their families, pay for childcare, or, as Wu says in the trailer, “maybe go shopping every once in a while.”
Set to Cardi B’s “Money,” the trailer offers an early glimpse at the sexy, nostalgia-ridden costumes, which may have once been deemed stripper clothes but now, as women are reclaiming their bodies, feel empowering. J. Lo’s character Ramona seems to be the most fashion-obsessed in her giant furs and large gilded sunglasses. She wears a Juicy Couture velour tracksuit, as well as plenty of Fashion Nova–esque minidresses in a mix of metallics. The very Kendall-and-Bella-friendly low-slung, chain-belted pants and cropped one-shoulder top seen on Wu’s character, Destiny, are early-2000s-era fashion highlights too. Like the plot itself, the costumes in Hustlers are sure to inspire women to take back what’s theirs—and maybe try wearing statement hoop earrings once in a while. The bigger the hoop, the bigger the…baller?
