Jennifer Lopez's Most Memorable MTV Video Music Awards Looks
Jennifer Lopez will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards to honor her momentous mark on the music industry. But over the years, her red carpet style has proved to be just as iconic. Take a look back at her sexy, sporty (and, yes, sometimes wacky!) MTV VMA outfits.
A year before her debut studio album, On the 6, Lopez mixed sporty vibes (that bra top!) with country (hi, cowboy hat) and business casual (blazer!) to create one multi-trend look.
In 1999, Jennifer was starting to find her sexy signature style that she'd be known for for the next three decades. (Crop tops, slits and lots of leather.)
Her famous all white moment is a look that has been copied time and time again (never forget Khloé Kardashian's version). The outfit was also lucky. In 2000 she took home the moonman for Best Dance Video for "Waiting for Tonight."
Much like her 1998 look, Jennifer was into mix-and-matching trends. She paired a super-revealing leopard-print sheer blouse with over-the-knee boots and topped it all off with a sun hat.
In 2002, she walked the carpet in a fringe-accented plunging black midi dress and took home the Moon Man for Best Hip-Hop Video for "I'm Real (Murder Remix)."
If we learned anything from this retrospective, it's that Jennifer loved wearing fun floppy hats to the VMAs.
There was no missing the star in this sparkles-from-every-angle silver mini dress teamed with a matching headscarf.
True to her style-setting ways, J.Lo rocked all the hottest trends of 2009 — a babydoll mini dress, cage booties — and she's killing it them all.
Sequins, slits and lots of skin. This cutout silver Charbel Zoe gown hits every J.Lo style note.
