How Jennifer Lopez’s Red Carpet Style Went From Demure to Daring

Whether she’s winning hearts in a rom-com or singing about being “Jenny from the Block,” Jennifer Lopez has always had a penchant for putting on the glitz. Since the famous plunging chiffon Versace dress she wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards, J-Lo’s name has become synonymous with daring, curve-baring looks. But it’s easy to forget that it wasn’t always so—Lopez once favored more demure designs, albeit always those with a shimmer, which is why she often gravitates to Zuhair Murad’s dramatic pieces. Nearly 20 years later, and Lopez still manages to shine on every red carpet she walks on, so as we wait for her to deliver another stunning look, take a look back on some of Lopez’s highlights over the past 20+ years.
