Jennifer Lopez

With a career that has kicked ass the better part of three decades, it’s no wonder today’s pop stars have taken notice and echoed the look that has made Jennifer Lopez, J.Lo. And it’s not all about appearances — there’s a business mogul underneath that Versace dress celebs want to emulate.

The Look: That Hair!

That's a wrap… American Idol cities tour!!! Gonna be a great season!!!

When Jenny first hit the scene, her locks were chocolate brown. But since she started working with celebrity colorist Rita Hazan in the late 90s, J.Lo has made honey highlights a thing to be coveted.

You could say Jen and Bey started highlighting their hair at the same time, but where’s the fun in that?

One more BTS pic! Thanks again @kittengalore for having me on your cover!

J.Lo, is that you? Wait, no. It’s Naya channeling a very J.Lo-in-the-Waiting For Tonight moment. Sadly, Naya couldn’t hack this hue and went back to brunette.

The Look: Flawless, Glowing Makeup

Bronze shadow and a pale lip, we don’t normally see this soft look on RiRi but we’ve seen it PLENTY of times on J.Lo.

Known for candy-colored hair and cupcake bras, Katy Perry has, on rare occasion, gone with the makeunder. For her Harper’s Bazaar cover she channeled her inner Lopez with a classic cat eye, bronze, dewy skin and and nude lips.

She’s performed with J.Lo, so why not copy J.Lo’s style?

The Success: Fragrance Mogul

According to Forbes, Jennifer Lopez reinvigorated the celebrity fragrance industry more than a decade ago with the release of Glow by JLo. Her perfumes – more than 18 total – have made more than $2 billion in total sales. It’s no wonder so many celebs have followed suit.

If it smells, it sells, so Gomez asked her fans to choose which notes to include in her signature fragrance, Selena Gomez. The winners? Stripper-licious notes of vanilla, freesia and raspberry.

Brit Brit has 10 perfumes. Seems like a lot, but J.Lo’s got her beat with 18 fragrances and counting. Guess it’s been hard for the Louisiana bombshell to come up with other ways to incorporate “Fantasy” into her fragrance names.

Even the Biebs is in. Justin’s got four perfumes and his young fans love ’em, giving J.Lo a run. His “Someday” perfume broke sales records when it was released.

The Success: The Block

Old school hip hop doesn’t get old. Jenny from the Block’s video, inspired by her upbringing in the Bronx, quickly climbed the charts. With a debut at #67, it eventually rose to #3. If it works, why not copy it?

Becky G isn’t even trying to hide her imitation game with a straight-up remake video for her hit single Becky from the Block. J.Lo makes a cameo in the music video, so it’s clear Becky G’s got her blessing.

Do You Remember these Movies Michelle Rodriguez Starred In?

Michelle Rodriguez’s breaking records along with the rest of “The Fast and the Furious” cast. But before she was zipping away in tricked-out cars, she was being a badass in these roles. How many have you seen?

In between filming for “Fast and Furious” and “Fast & Furious 6,” MRod swapped fast cars for guns to team up with Robert Rodriguez twice and give life to Luz, who fearlessly led the Network.

As Paz in “Turbo” (2013)

Gamers may have recognized her voice (or not) in the popular video game. Some claim to have never come across the Strike Force soldier and that’s because you’d have to go through all strike force missions to hear her. She also lent her voice to other games like Halo 2 (2004), Driv3r (2004) and True Crime: Streets of LA (2003).

Michelle Rodriguez also had a recurring role on the what seemed to be never-ending series, “Lost.” She was the leader of the tail section survivors with deep emotional issues. Any surprise there?

As Trudy Chacon in “Avatar” (2009)

She landed a role in the highest-grossing movie, “Avatar,” but her presence as Trudy Chacon the pilot may not have been strong enough to land her a role on the sequel set to debut in 2017. She did however get a part in the “Avatar” video game.

As Chris Sanchez in “S.W.A.T.” (2003)

When you think about the movie S.W.A.T. you think of LL Cool J and Colin Farrell strapped to powerful guns (and wearing tight black shirts), but Michelle also had a part in the cop thriller as Christina Sánchez.

Looking at her career now, no one would guess that a few years ago Michelle was prancing around the beach in a bikini for one of her roles. But she did. Back in 2002, she played surfer girl Eden in “Blue Crush” next to Kate Bosworth.

As Rain Ocampo in “Resident Evil” (2002)

Michelle Rodriguez returned to the “Resident Evil” franchise playing not one or two, but three separate characters – all clones of Rain Ocampo from the first movie. All those clones didn’t improve her chances of being remembered.

As Diana Guzman in “Girlfight” (2000)

Most think Michelle’s big break came from “The Furious” franchise, but critics credit “Girlfight” for making her a household name. We don’t know about that…
