Jennifer Lopez celebrated her 46th birthday July 24, and the birthday girl stepped out for celebrations on the weekend at a club in Southhampton, N.Y. in a dress that left little to the imagination.
She might be getting close to the half-century mark but J. Lo seemed out to prove that she is in her prime in a dress designed by Bao Tranchi that was equal parts sheer and featured cutouts.
The flesh-baring dress prompted that other celebrity who knows a thing or two about revealing outfits, Kim Kardashian, to tweet out (and post on instagram) her approval, “How hot does @jlo look!!!”
While the dress might have raised a few eyebrows, she has never been body-shy. The triple-threat performer – singer, actor, dancer – has always favoured outfits that show off her toned physique.
If you recall, she rose to prominence with just such an outfit – a green palm print Versace sheer gown at the Grammy Awards in 2000. That dress caused a sensation and received global media coverage and threw the spotlight on Lopez, overshadowing her boyfriend that evening – a bigger star than her at the time – Sean Combs.
But there seems to be two sides to Lopez’s style. The bold body-revealing and the covered-up glam girl. Perhaps one aimed at her youthful audience that tune in to her musical career and the other that follow her movie career where she plays romantic leading roles.
As we celebrate her birthday, we take a look at the various style choices of the woman who went from Jenny from the Block to J. Lo.
