See Jennifer Lopez’s Hottest Fashion Moments Through the Years: Photos

Burning up! Whether she’s walking down the red carpet, performing live or simply out and about, Jennifer Lopez always serves up a seriously hot style moment.

The actress’ sexy style is just as iconic as her eponymous J. Lo glow. From plunging necklines and thigh-high leg slits to slinky dresses and itty-bitty minis, the Wedding Planner star has become a force in fashion over the years.

So, in honor of her impeccable wardrobe, Us Weekly is taking a look down memory lane, rounding up Lopez’s most sizzling, sassy and stylish looks of all time.

Obviously that journey kicks off in 2000, when the “Jenny From the Block” singer established her fashion icon status at the Grammys. Wearing an unforgettable Versace dress with a below-the-belly-button plunging neckline, Lopez shook the world.

The ensemble has been the inspiration for thousands of Halloween costumes and has stood the test of time, with Google revealing in 2021 that it is the most searched celebrity fashion look since 2004.

After making such a splash in the style space, Lopez has kept the bar high, choosing outfits with cool cutouts and skin-tight silhouettes.

Take the Gigli premiere in 2003 for example. The actress, who first met Ben Affleck while filming in 2001, stunned in a silky Gucci gown. The dress featured a bustier-like top with a low cut neckline. (After getting engaged in 2002, the two called off their 2003 nuptials and split one year later. They reunited in 2021 and tied the knot in July 2022.)

The Maid in Manhattan star certainly has an affinity for metallics, rocking a handful of glitzy gowns in the years that followed. One of our favorites? The gilded gold Marchesa number she wore to the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards in 2009.

Fast forward a few years and the J.Lo Beauty founder developed a penchant for jumpsuits. In 2016 alone, she rocked a custom-made sequin number for the American Idol season finale, a skin-tight sheer ensemble for the Latin Grammys and a denim jumpsuit to the Jen Klein Day of Indulgence.

We also have to shout out the Second Act star’s 2018 Met Gala look, a beaded and feather-embellished Atelier Versace gown. Oh, and of course, there was a huge slit to show off her gorgeous gams.

More recently, Lopez has been reaching for white ensembles. For Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve, she wore a massive Valentino coat. Underneath, she sparkled in a sequined Olivier Rousteing jumpsuit.

She stuck with the white theme for the Global Citizen Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World in 2021, stunning in a plunging Elie Saab jumpsuit.
