JLo Is A Red Carpet Queen! Here’s 25 Of Her Most Iconic Looks

When it comes to style, Jennifer Lopez knows how to make a statement. Just as the Nuyorican singer/actress/designer/everything can do it all on the stage or in the board room, she’s also shown she can take it from street style to couture when she’s rocking the red carpet. JLo’s looks are so iconic they’re seared into our memory, and we may have even tried replicating them with lesser success. But, hey, at least we tried!

Here’s the 25 most iconic of JLo’s looks!

Again, if it’s got some vintage glitz to it, J.Lo is all over it. This feathery mini dress she wore at a Golden Globes after party in 2011 has the mod spunk and glamour that only she can pull off.

This is a lot of dress, but Lopez is a lot of woman and she can carry it. The Elie Saab is nothing short of a fairy tale gown made for running up the steps to a castle, or in Lopez’s case, riding up a glass elevator to a penthouse.

We get it. Miami is a hot city, and J.Lo probably wants to ensure she can stay cool. This barely there number worn in 2017 proves that Florida’s hot, hot heat is nothing compared to the fire Lopez radiates. I mean, damn! It’s not even fair.

It’s pretty rare for Lopez to wear black. She loves bright, statement prints and colors, but this black gown is right in line with the cuts and styles she usually goes for. If there’s a Studio 54-esque one-shoulder gown out there, J.Lo is gonna want it.

5. This Gold Marchesa Gown With Plunging Neckline



Something Lopez has that so many other red carpet mainstays wish they had is the ability to do diva level glitz and major sex appeal, all while keeping it totally classy. This 2009 Golden Globes look could easily be way too much for a mere mortal to rock, but Lopez is a goddess.

Good. Lord. How. How can anyone pull this off? Oh, that’s right. Jennifer Lopez isn’t anyone. This sparkly numbers is the dress we all dream of being able to wear, even to the grocery store.

Lopez doesn’t wear black very often, but you damn well know if she is going to it’s going to have some POW! And this Reem Acra gown definitely brings that thanks to some steely beaded embellishments. It’s that touch of glitz she always brings to the table. I mean, carpet.

As always, even when J.Lo does understated there has to be a statement piece to her look. That sparkly sleeve turned this simple gown up a notch, and that’s literally what she does everywhere. She elevates the glam.

Back when she was dating Diddy, Lopez showed her support by rocking some of his Sean Jean line. The look become an instant classic, showing off the Bronx babe’s street sensibility.

10. In White Zuhair Murad at the Golden Globes



This dress could have easily been a total jealous bridesmaid trying to steal the brides thunder type of look. And it might be just a little bit. But on Lopez, she just makes it shine, and stand out on its own.

She showed up on the red carpet rocking one of the statement looks of 2004 – the Grecian toga-style gown. The marigold color popped on her bronze skin, and the silver leather embellishments added a touch of edge.

This sexy number screams ’30s bombshell! This is a gown that Jean Harlow would have worn, but thankfully we got J.Lo in it looking like the silver screen starlet she is.

She may have been rocking some arm candy that fateful Oscar night, but Lopez was the real sweet thing in this demure Chanel gown. But because it’s J.Lo and she can’t go around looking too prim, the see-through top proved she still brings the sexy.

Lopez’s career can be timed as BTD and ATD – Before the Dress and After the Dress. the famous green Versace is not just a defining moment for Lopez, but an iconic moment in red carpet history. No one will ever forget it.

This color just pops on Lopez! The cut, dramatic train, and rouching of the dress serves up a mega ’50s look that stands the test of time. It’s just so perfect, and hugs her curves in all the right places.

When Lopez was still a relative newbie to the red carpet, she still brought the glamour. This beaded gown had a bit of of bridesmaid vibe, but it was beautiful and gave us a glimpse of what was to come from the soon-to-be superstar.

Lopez always makes daring choices on the red carpet, and this pink gown she wore to the Oscars was a touch Glenda the Good Witch in a way that I definitely cosign. She’s not afraid to try something different, and that’s why Lopez is always a favorite.

Lopez made another Versace gown iconic, but we’ll get back to that later. This baby pink, form hugging mermaid-cut gown she wore at the 2002 Oscars was sweet and sexy. The hair was…questionable. Even J.Lo misses the mark sometimes, but reminds us that the prettiest dress can’t hide some truly un-cute hair.  But there’s no disputing Jenny’s got serious moves! Take a look at Jlo’s top 25 music videos!!

Lopez does not shy away from color. In fact, she revels in it. When she stepped out in this bright yellow gown at the Globes, there wasn’t a head that didn’t turn.

You can always tell when Lopez caught “Valley of the Dolls” playing late night on TV. This look has evil ’60s doña written all over it and I AM HERE FOR IT. It’s so dramatic and kind of silly, but so, so good.

This is a lot of look, and most people couldn’t handle even just one element of this outfit. And yet, J.Lo hits that red carpet doing all three, handing out a smoldering look to the cameras. It’s got that ’70s glam she loves too!

This Badgley Mischka number is arguably the first step Lopez took into the sexy, glam looks that would come to be her trademark.

Lopez loves herself some Valentino, and can’t resist a ’70s throwback look! And she does it so damn well. She showed up to the Met Gala radiating high-end “I Dream of Jeannie” realness that made this stand apart at even one of the most avant garde red carpets the fashion world sees.

This gown had major ’70s vintage glam factor! From its caftan cut, to the sparkly embellishments, to the perfect hair, this look was head-to-toe perfection.

Neighbors Formed A Human Chain To Prevent This Man From Getting Deported And It’s The Most Beautiful Act Of Humanity I’ve Seen

Neighbors Formed A Human Chain To Prevent This Man From Getting Deported And It’s The Most Beautiful Act Of Humanity I’ve Seen

DailyKos / Twitter

Although the planned Trump ICE raids didn’t happen on the scale that many were expecting, there are still many heartbreaking stories of people being rounded up, arrested, detained, and even deported. However, in some cases entire communities have come together to fight back against ICE and to protect people from illegal arrests.

Case in point: this story out of Tennessee in which vecinos, advocates, and legal activists came together to protect a father and his son from an illegal ICE raid.

A group of vecinos created a literal human chain to protect their neighbor from ICE agents.

Hermitage, Tennessee community members rushed to a neighbor’s home to protect him and his son from Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents early Monday morning, at one point forming a human chain around the van where the family had been stuck so they could safely exit into their home.

It started early Monday morning when ICE officers followed a man’s van and tried to pull it over. After the van’s driver pulled into the driveway of a house, the officers blocked him in. The man remained inside the vehicle and alerted local advocates and neighbors, the affiliates said.

A crowd gathered, with witnesses recording the tense scene on their cell phones and bringing supplies to the parked vehicle. Neighbors brought gasoline to keep the van running and food and water for the man and his 12-year-old son, who were holed up inside. “While there were immigrant advocate community members present, it was clear that a major thrust of the citizen response was being driven by the immediate neighbors of the man and child in the van. … It was striking to watch neighbors deliver food, water, and gasoline to help their neighbor stay in his car,” Nashville City Council Bob Mendes said in a statement describing what he watched unfold

ICE officers eventually decided to leave “to de-escalate the situation,” ICE spokesman Bryan Cox told CNN. Coxsaid he wouldn’t say “who the agency’s target or targets may have been so as to not compromise a potential future operation that would seek to arrest the individual at a different time and place.”

People were full of emotion once the story broke.

With all the bad news in the world, many people have pretty much lost faith in ever hearing anything good again. So when the story of a group of people coming together to protect a man and his son from an ICE arrest broke, many were overwhelmed. It showed to many that even in the unlikeliest of places good people doing good things do still exist.

Like seriously, we dare you to watch this video and not at least get goosebumps.

When they form the chain so the man and his son can get to their car…omg it’s so powerful to watch a community spring into action.

Some took to Twitter to call for more of this community action.

Many advocacy organizations used this story as an example of community-driven efforts to fight back against Trump’s racist immigration policies. Actions like this one protected a family from an illegal arrest. The agent’s warrant wasn’t legally sufficient to arrest the man and had it not been for the quick action of the community, ICE would of gotten away with it.

Deanna From “Queer Eye” Was Harassed By Neighbors Who Told Her “The Mexicans Are Building Their Own Wall” But The Fab Five Helped Her Overcome Giving Us Another Reason To Love Them

Deanna From “Queer Eye” Was Harassed By Neighbors Who Told Her “The Mexicans Are Building Their Own Wall” But The Fab Five Helped Her Overcome Giving Us Another Reason To Love Them

Netflix

Netflix’s reboot of Queer Eye, featuring the Fab Five, has become a staple of America’s collective therapy. In the days since the fourth season has dropped, we’re all feeling more in touch with our feelings, but never have we been so attacked as when we met Chicana Deanna Muñoz. 

Deanna is a proud second generation Mexican-American who struggles with being “stuck” between two cultures. She doesn’t speak Spanish and can’t cook, making her feel like she’s “not Mexican enough”, and racism felt by her white neighbors makes her feel like she’s “not white enough.” Needless to say, that experience is so relatable for most of us second-generation Latino-Americans.

Meet Deanna Muñoz in all her J.Lo glory.

In fact, we call it brujería. Deanna had her first child when she was just 16 years old, and had to drop out of school. As her daughter started pouring her heart into creative writing, she wanted to find her a tutor. With none to be found, she founded the Latino Arts Festival non-profit foundation, to showcase and cultivate Latino culture in Kansas City.

We’re giving Queer Eye a 10/10 for shining a light on cultural Imposter Syndrome within the Latinx community.

Why did Queer Eye do such a good job of this? They created space for Deanna, an actual Chicana, to share her experience to America. So many of us have faced the surprise of both Latinos and non-Latinos alike when we answer that “what are you?” question. In a place like the U.S., where we often come from mixed-culture families, seeing the emotional effects played out on screen is validating AF.

Deanna’s family had to build a mini wall to reinforce water drainage on their yard, and a neighbor texted her husband saying, “The Mexicans are building their own wall.” 😡

Deanna’s family immediately felt uncomfortable in their own neighborhood. Our favorite Cubano, Karamo, made sure that Deanna went where the love is–and had her create her own welcome to the ‘hood.

And sons and daughters of immigrant parents everywhere sobbed to see the sacrifice.

Deanna’s parents immigrated to the U.S. to give Deanna a better life. So many of our parents or abuelos left their culture and language behind to give their children a new start in life. Seeing Deanna get that is what it’s all about. #NoWall

Meanwhile, Bobbi created a safe space for Latino artists in Kansas City by gifting Deanna an office space.

Deanna was working out of a tiny space in her home, with the third annual Latino Arts Festival upon her. Bobbi was able to create a studio space for Latinx artists, and made sure that Latinx artists influenced the design of the space. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

There was also this Latino lesson: never reject abuela’s food. She’ll bring it to you anyway.

Twitter user Pamela Gocobachi shared, that “one of my fave moments from the new #QueerEye season was in  Deanna’s episode when @antoni learned the hard way that you never say no when abuelita asks you if you want to eat something– Martha’s face when he said “later”? Antoni’s face when she brought him food anyway? I DIED”

If you don’t speak Spanish but could relate to Deanna’s struggle to ask for help or take up any space at all, you inherited that from Latino culture.

Not one of us would question Deanna’s Latinidad, but we internalize so much shame for not living like we grew up in a Latin American country. Language and food are just two ways to define culture. 

Deanna relatably felt intimidated to be in the kitchen with the viejas.. Deanna felt like her Latin style was seen as “childish” in her board meetings and had trouble being taken seriously. These are the Latino-American experiences we have all experienced and they make us Latino.

If you’re feeling inspired, be like Chloe, and donate to the Latino Arts Foundation!

It doesn’t matter if you don’t speak Spanish and couldn’t roast a poblano for your life–your Latinidad is bigger than that. It’s everything that gives us the birthright to claim that identity, especially in a foreign land. Whether your culture looks like the art of cafecito or appreciating Bad Bunny even though you don’t understand every word he’s saying, somos Latino.

What we do to celebrate that is what we pass on to the next generation. Donate to the Latino Arts Foundation hoy.
