What it Takes to Look Like J.Lo: 8,000 Crystals
The singer’s head-turning crystal-embellished creation made its official Americas debut this weekend when she kicked off her North American tour in Montreal. The jumpsuit (first), topped off with a sky-high white fur headpiece (is it making anyone else think of the Buckingham Palace guards?) and a hand-embroidered feather skirt, was just one of the many Zuhair Murad Couture creations she’s rocking on stage. (If that name sounds familiar, it’s probably because Lopez has worn his designs before, including at the Oscars two years in a row.)
“My utmost wish is for each costume to create a ‘Wow!’ effect the moment she steps on stage,” Murad told PEOPLE in June when he released sketches of the getups. Mission accomplished, Mr. Murad. Each garment he made for Lopez features more than 2,000 hand-sewn crystals — that’s more 8,000 sparkles in total!
Lopez also hit the stage in a bright blue fringed corset mini (second), followed by yet another nude sequined one-piece (third). Not surprisingly, the former American Idol judge pulled out all the stops for her final ensemble, flaunting her famous curves in a nude-illusion black leotard with fringe detail (fourth).
Well, it’s official: we’d go see Lopez in concert just to check out her costumes. Tell us: Which one of Lopez’s stage looks is your favorite?
