Jennifer Lopez Just Repeated Her Most Infamous Versace Moment

Jun 5 2014 - 7:19am

When Jennifer Lopez [1] hit the stage for her first-ever hometown concert [2] in the Bronx, NY, last night, she wasn't just waxing nostalgic for her old neighborhood. She opened the show in a bodysuit version of perhaps her most iconic red carpet look [3] — the infamous green jungle-print Versace [4] gown that she wore to the Grammys 14 years ago. The look was, of course, by Versus Versace, and all five of the singer's on-stage costumes were designed by the Italian fashion house.

This isn't the first time she's doubled down [5] on her Versace number. She represented her fashion-forward roots — and proved that she's very much still Jenny from the block — by donning it another time this year. Read on to find out, and to see every angle of her updated look. Then, vote on which Jennifer wore it better — past or present.

The original look in all its sheer glory.

Fast-forward 14 years, and she's still got it.

Her updated version featured a leotard to provide more coverage and is accessorized with a giant gold safety pin belt and three safety pin closures.

Just like the original, this one was all about flowing silk fabric . . . and wearing it with absolute confidence.

Soon, she ditched the tearaway skirt, as one does.

And showed off her best assets.

To prove she's still got it, she rode a bicycle backwards in it!

Even her backup dancers got the memo.

Yes, Jennifer, we know: this is the second time you've worn it live.

Who Wore It Better?

For her "I Luh Ya Papi" music video, which was released in March 2014, she donned a version made up of a pair of pants and matching top [6] by Versus Versace [7] with the same plunging neckline and safari print. But we're still wondering — who wore it better?
