50 Times Jennifer Lopez’s Red Carpet Looks Made Our Jaws Drop

From her iconic Versace gown to her favorite Zuhair Murad dress(es), these outfits are legendary..

Jennifer Lopez has been known to wear the heck out of a sweatshirt and a pair of leggings, so it’s no surprise that when it comes to glamorous events, this style star doesn’t hold back. J.Lo has been making us audibly gasp with her red carpet looks since at least 1997 (and definitely since 2000, when her belly-button-baring Versace gown first made an appearance) and there’s rarely a moment when we aren’t impressed or envious over what she’s wearing.

It’s hard to narrow down over 20 years of best dresses and gowns — there have been so many wins — but somehow, we did it. Check out all the times Lopez solidified her title as ruler of the red carpet, whether she was wearing silver, animal print, or a sexy naked dress.
