In Honor of J.Lo Being Nominated for the People’s Icon Award, Here Are Her Most Iconic Moments:

Put your drinks up! J.Lo has broken barriers yet again! Jennifer Lopez will receive the People’s Icon Award at the 2020 People’s Choice Awards. “Jennifer Lopez has an unmatched global appeal and for more than two decades, has given us some of the most iconic, unforgettable performances of all time,” Jen Neal, General Manager of E! News, Live Events & Lifestyle Digital, said in a statement. And we could not agree more, not only has J.Lo given us so many iconic moments in the fashion, film, and music industry, she has opened the door for more representation of the LatinX community in the entertainment industry.

 To celebrate, we compiled a list of Jennifer Lopez’s most iconic moments. 

1. Selena (1997)

There’s no doubt that the role of Selena became a defining moment of J.Lo’s career. The movie solidified Lopez’s rise to fame and saw her become the first Latina in the United States to earn $1 million for a starring role in a feature film. All while representing one of the most impactful and loved Latina artists. J.Lo’s performance as Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, the “Queen of Tejano music” will forever be remembered. 

2. Green Versace Dress (2000)

 Twenty years have passed since J.Lo appeared at the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards in 2000 wearing the infamous green Versace dress but to this day it remains one of the most talked about runway moments of all time. Fun fact: Google Images was invented because of the high demand of users wanting to see a picture of Lopez in the dress. Of course, the dress has proven to be more than just a blip in fashion history. In 2019, J.Lo walked in the Versace show wearing a redesigned version of the dress to celebrate the 20th anniversary of it. There’s only one word to describe this: Timeless. 

3. The Wedding Planner (2001)

Columbia Pictures

Who doesn’t love rom coms? Especially when Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey play the love interests. Lopez’s dance moves once again prove her talent as a dancer in the tango scene. To date, The Wedding Planner remains a fan favorite among J.Lo’s supporters.

4. “Jenny From the Block” 

In 2002, Jennifer Lopez released “Jenny From the Block,” one of her most popular singles, which at one point reached number three on the U.S. BillBoard Hot 100. The song is about how international fame and wealth could not change the girl from the Bronx. The song also ultimately inspired one of J.Lo’s lovingly crafted nicknames.

5. “On the Floor”  music video 

As of today, the 2011 music video featuring Pitbull, a.k.a Mr. Worldwide has 1.6 billion views on YouTube. “On the Floor” is the most viewed of J.Lo’s music videos. It is an extravagant and lavish production. The music video shows Lopez as the queen of the club, but also as the talented dancer that she is.

6. J.Lo’s appearance on James Corden Carpool Karaoke in 2016

The highlight of her appearance is when Corden grabbed her phone to text one of her famous contacts which included Cristiano Ronaldo, Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson, and Demi Lovato. Corden decided to text Leonardo DiCaprio, asking for suggestions to “cut loose,” he signed the text “J.Lo (you know, from the block).” They got a response back a few minutes later that read: “Tonight boo, boo? Club-wise?” This is for sure was a hilarious and priceless moment. Who has so many famous A-listers in their contacts? The one and only Jenny from the Block. 

7. Met Gala (2018)

The 2018 Met Gala had some of the most glamorous looks for its “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” theme. J.Lo totally rocked the theme with a Balmain gown full of gems and a feathered train, this look earned the 7th spot for some of Jennifer Lopez’s most iconic moments.

8. Hustlers (2019)

J.Lo’s role as Ramona, a leader of a group of women who scam and drug rich men, was a career-best performance, but it did not receive the recognition it deserved. After the Academy Awards released the 2020 nominees, many noticed that Lopez had been snubbed for a Best Supporting Actress nomination. J.Lo’s solo pole dancing scene in Hustlers shows how much dedication and passion she puts into her roles. She took some of her training and skills for the Hustlers movie into her 2020 Super Bowl halftime show. 

9. Super Bowl Half-time (2020)

The Super Bowl is one of the most extravagant live shows and Jennifer Lopez lived up to the moment. Her performance alongside Shakira is one of the best Super Bowl halftime shows of all time. She proudly wore the Puerto Rican flag as she sang alongside her daughter, Emme Maribel Muñiz. J.Lo’s performance was a fun and uplifting celebration of Latinx heritage as she sang alongside Colombian artist, J. Balvin. Also, let’s not forget the #JLoTikTokChallenge that went viral all over TikTok.

10. TikTok with A-Rod

Just about anyone with a pulse and a heart for makeup knows that Jennifer Lopez established herself as a beauty guru ages ago.

The actress, singer, and business entrepreneur has been an influential part of the beauty industry throughout her decades-long career. Having established dozens of fragrances (the worth sum of which clocks in at a cool a $2 billion), collaborated on a hit makeup line with Inglot and likely inspired hundreds of thousands of women to invest in countless bronzers, there’s no denying that Jennifer Lopez was a beauty influencer long before social media became a thing.

Soon after ringing in the new year, Lopez took to Instagram to show fans how she uses her newly-launched JLo Beauty skincare to clean up.

Lopez told fans she was going to “wash away 2020” to share how effective her products worked. “It’s a lot of makeup and I’m ready to wash it off,” she explained before dampening her face and showing how her products like That Hit Single In a Gel Cream CleanserThat JLo Glow Multitasking Serum, and That Blockbuster In a Nonstop Wonder Cream.

After washing up, Lopez dried up with a towel and held it up to show that she had no makeup left. “My skin is completely clean. Every one of our products leaves you with a little bit of a glow when you’re done. All the makeup is gone. You can see a little bit of the redness that I have naturally. A little bit of what I have under my eyes,” she revealed.

JLo Beauty’s collection of glow-boosting products include a Gel Cream Cleanser ($38), Multitasking Serum ($79), Multitasking Mask ($18), Nonstop Wonder Cream ($58), Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Moisturizer ($54), Eye Cream ($48), Complexion Booster ($39) and Skin-Nutritious Dietary Supplement ($36).

Fans have waited for nearly two years for Lopez’s new skin-care line to drop.

Sunset glow… #JLoBeauty coming soon

A post shared by Jennifer Lopez (@jlo) on

The “Hustlers” actress announced in December 2018, that she had been working on her own skin-care collection for quite some time. After years of holding our breath for the launch, it looks like we’ll only have to wait just a smidge longer.

In a post to her Instagram page, Lopez dropped the news that J.Lo Beauty is coming soon. In the post, the actress shared two selfies, both of which featured that infamous J.Lo glow, and topped off the look with a caption that teased “Sunset glow… #JLoBeauty coming soon.”

Fans on Instagram poured over the picture and expressed their excitement in the comments section. “Make-up line???” one fan commented. “Skin care products???? YESSSS YESS TO EVERYTHING JEN!!”

“Coming soon?! Need that glow!! Looking gorgeous mama,” another chimed in.

Sadly, Lopez did refrain from sharing the launch date of the products and has yet to reveal what to expect out of the new line.

Which isn’t so surprising since Lopez is the queen of teasers.

Earlier this month, Lopez hinted that she had something in the works related to her beauty brand when she posted a makeup-free video and challenged fans to guess what she was working on. “Woke up this morning feeling extra grateful and excited! 🤍 Want to know why? Comment below if you wanna know what I’m working on,” she wrote.

However, we might just have one hint! According to People a trademark filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office last December, JLo Beauty aims to provide cosmetics and skincare products.

Jennifer Lopez Talks New Skincare Line, Denies She’s Ever Had Botox: ‘I’m Not That Person’

Jennifer Lopez is as famous for her dewy, glowing skin as she is for her acting, singing, and dancing. And like a fine, wine the Bronx-born triple threat just keeps getting better with age. Let’s be honest: JLo looks as hot now as she did in the ’90s.

Finally, JLo has decided to let the public in on some of her secrets. That’s right, JLo has created a skincare line.

The line is called JLo Beauty and its dropping on January 1st.

As of now, the line includes eight products, a “Gel Cream Cleanser”, a “Multitaskting Serum”, a sheet mask, a “Wonder Cream”, a “Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Moisturizer”, an eye cream, a tinted moisturizer and an oral skin supplement. According to Lopez, she was intimately involved in the creation of all of them.

“The past three years, we’ve been working on the products, but we finally got them right,” she said in an interview with People. “I think I drove everybody a little bit crazy because I didn’t want to put my name on anything that didn’t work or wasn’t exactly what I wanted it to be.”

Ever the perfectionist, JLo claims that her skincare products went through one hundred rounds of product development before she was satisfied with the outcome.

Recently, JLo made headlines for claiming that she’s never gotten Botox. And if that’s true, maybe we can learn a thing or two about skincare from her.

In a recent interview with The New York Post, JLo shot down rumors that her youthful appearance is the result of a doctor’s intervention.

“I haven’t ever had Botox to this day. I’m not that person,” she said. “I don’t have anything against people doing that; it’s just not my thing. I’m more about a natural approach to skincare.”

And indeed, JLo Beauty does seem to rely on natural ingredients, the primary one being olive oil.

“The hero ingredient and the basis of the line was kind of a secret that my mom and aunt had from a very young age, which is olive oil. It’s nature’s secret ingredient which we don’t use enough of,” she told People. “They would use it on their skin and on their body, their face and their hair to get like a glow and to highly hydrate and moisturize.”

The slogan for JLo Beauty is “beauty has no expiration date.” That’s a mantra we can get behind.

JLo Beauty will be available on its website on January 1st in Sephora stores on January 14th. Pre-order all of the products here.
