If you don’t know who Jennifer Lopez is then you must have been living under a rock for the last couple of decades. She is an award winning actress and musician who has done nothing but continue to amaze us over the extent of her career! That includes her fashion choices. This article is going to show some key wardrobe choices in Ms. Lopez’s career.
In this image is J. Lo’s most remembered outfit of all time. Surely, it is not your first time seeing it. She broke the standard red carpet look at the 42nd Annual Grammy’s with this Versace number. It had become such an uproar that it had its own Wikipedia page and various chat rooms! Another one of the many cool facts about this iconic moment is that it became a top search in Google and because of such high demand that couldn’t be handled by the regular Google search, Google Images was introduced. If you were a typical on looker, you either loved it or hated it. Many people felt it was way too risque, especially for a curvy girl **side eye**. The plunging neckline and sheer fabrics are definitely eye catching. Others, however, thought that it was the bomb dot com for the very same reasons!
Later that year, at the MTV awards, she strutted through the event rocking true Bronx ensemble with her hip hop heavy outfit. She was making it a point to show that she’s still real and her around the way girl persona was still prevalent, even down to the seams of her outfit choices. Backlash for looking to “ghetto” or “tasteless” was of course given but obviously the star was un-phased.
At the Macy’s Passport Gala in 2005, Jennifer Lopez was a knockout. The entire look was utterly breathtaking. From the deep blue smokey eye, to the classy up-do and navy gown against her glowing olive skin you could not help but fall in love with her this day!
If you witnessed Jennifer’s enchanting appearance at the 66th Annual Golden Globes in 2009, you were most likely moved. She showed up in a stunning metallic Marchesa gown, dowsed in gold jewelry and accessories to match. She was surely a sight to see. Her outfit was so moving that she kept her makeup and hair very simple so as to not take away from it. With a slick bun and simply beat face, she undeniably knocked us dead with that one!
In 2011, at the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty gala, Jennifer Lopez demonstrated her well rounded knowledge of not only street fashion and formal wear, but she wowed us with couture! This bright red was certainly out of the norm for the singer-actress who normally stuck to more earthy tones. But nonetheless, she slayed our lives and made very clear that she is a woman who can and will rock anything!
You thought she was done with you, but Miss Lopez did not come to play! She worked the runway at the American Idol 2016 Finalists Party in this daringly diva-esque sparkling red catsuit. With a mighty marvelous figure at the age of 47, she’s still got it. Undoubtedly when she waltzed in the room, she was known as that spicy hot Lady in Red. Clearly, she has no worries!
As you can see, J Lo has come a long way over the years and is only growing more successful. She is someone who is not afraid of taking risks and being different in her career choices or wardrobe!
