Twenty years since Jennifer Lopez came on to the r’n’b music scene, she’s transformed from the “Jenny from the block” persona; dressed in tracksuit bottoms, crop tops and big hoop earrings to “J-lo” in Zuhair Murad gowns and diamond studs.

Despite her changing dress sense, Jennifer Lopez has always maintained her gorgeous curvaceous figure, making an inspiration for plus size women and the ultimate style icon.

Since the release of her album “if you had my love” in 1999, J-lo has proven to the world she is a woman of many talents.

She has taken on a diverse range of roles including; acting in blockbuster films like Maid in Manhattan, as a judge on America’s Got Talent and even designing her own range of jewellery for Kohl’s, an American online retailer.

When J-lo walked the red carpet in her full-length, lace gown at the Golden Globe Awards for her latest smash-hit film Parker, earlier this year,  every fashion critic classed her as best dressed.

Harper’s Bazaar commented; “Jennifer Lopez looked stunning in a nude Zuhair Murad spring/summer 13 gown boasting ivory embroidery and teamed with side swept waves.”

The more J-lo is in the public eye, the more paparazzi gather around to capture images of her heaps of amazing outfits. It’s not just her red carpet looks which turn heads, she can pull off anything from a smart casual appearance in denim jeans and a blazer to sultry outfits in jumpsuits and leotards.

Further J-lo’s statement; her long-length hair made up of brunette lowlights and golden blonde highlights compliment her bronzed flawless skin. Her make-up artist, Scott Barnes who is also make-up artist to Kim Kardashian, helps J-lo maintain her dewy and exotic look with additions of light coloured eye-shadows and glossy nude lips for a refreshing touch.

Although J-lo has been on and off the Hollywood scene since start of the 21st Century, she is consistently in the media spotlight for her fashion choices. Even after birthing twins, this Latina goddess’ image is as timeless as her work.
