Is This a Preview of Jennifer Lopez's Summer Tour Wardrobe?
Jennifer Lopez was a showstopper in Las Vegas Saturday night — and not only because of her sizzling concert performance.
The singer — taking the stage for the ¡Q’Viva! The Chosen live show at the Mandalay Bay Events Center — sparkled in a hand-beaded couture gown by Zuhair Murad, the same designer in charge of her summer tour costumes. She accessorized with $70,000 yellow diamond drop earrings by Cora.
Could the long-sleeve gown — which featured a sheer silk neckline and gold feathered skirt — be a preview of what’s to come during her upcoming concerts?
“We’re still thinking about [the looks],” Lopez told reporters during a press conference for her tour (which also features Enrique Iglesias) earlier this month. However, she did have one small hint: “There is a cape planned for the show,” she revealed. “It’s not a Wonder Woman cape. You’ll have to come to the show to see it.”
This project won’t be a stretch for Murad, who designed Lopez’s white gown (and cape!) for the Golden Globes earlier this year.
A brand loyalist, Lopez has turned to the Lebanese designer for many other major fashion moments, including the 2010 Met Gala (“People were crying,” Murad told New York of her gown), her 2011 album launch event and the 2012 Oscars (twice!).
Murad is no stranger to dressing Lopez for the stage either: he created a spider web-inspired bodysuit for her for a Los Angeles concert last year.
On Saturday, Lopez performed for a crowd of 8.400 and took a final bow with ex-husband Marc Anthony by her side (the pair created and ran ¡Q’Viva! together, despite their split). After her performance, the star hit Hyde Nightclub with boyfriend Casper Smart (she changed into another Murad creation for that part of the evening), while Anthony and his girlfriend celebrated at the Cosmopolitan’s Marquee Nightclub.
