It was nearly 20 years ago that Jennifer Lopez stepped out onto the red carpet at the Grammys in a plunging green Versace dress cut down to there that would go on to become infamous — it was the reason Google image search was created, after all!
The 47-year-old may have just shown herself up, however. Last night at the Billboard Latin Music Awards, she rocked the most revealing dress we’ve seen her wear since. Not only did the mesh Julien Macdonald frock feature a plunging neckline, but it also showed off the “Get on the Floor” singer’s other assets with its open stitching, thigh-high slit, side cutouts, and hip cutouts. Oh, and she rocked it.
The “Ain’t Your Mama” singer completed the daring look with a pair of sky-high Jimmy Choo peep-toe heels and Lynn Ban jewels. As Rob Zangardi, one half of styling duo Rob and Mariel, told Billboard, it was a dress that was “both totally unexpected and classic Jen.” As he explains, it features both an open back and plunging neckline (both signature looks for the mother of two), but its dark hue and edgy cut give it somewhat of a gothic feel that’s a bit atypical for the Selena actress. “It has a major surprise factor yet is still completely her, which is essentially the goal.”
Lopez had some other surprises up her sleeve last night too: Like the second dress she donned to perform her new Spanish song “Mirate.” J. Lo ditched the black in favor of a lighter, silver version of her red carpet gown with a halter neck that showed off even more skin in place of the plunge.
Oh, and PS: What type of double stick tape is girlfriend using, anyway?
