For last night’s season finale, Lopez went full glam in a gilded Balmain cape from Olivier Rousteing’s spring/summer 2020 collection. The futuristic piece stood out when model Sijia Kang debuted it on Rousteing’s runway last year, but on Lopez, it took on a new verve. Black and silver with thousands of tiny beads, it was precisely the kind of opulent fashion Lopez is known for. Worn with slicked-back hair, diamond drop earrings, and plenty of attitude it made for an arresting look.
Naturally, Lopez’s fanbase had fun emulating their idol online. Some pulled out silver chains and black tulle to get as close to the original as possible, while others detailed dolls with sequins to create J.Lo Barbies. All entrants put their creativity on display, interpreting the idea in a myriad of ways, all of which Lopez shared on her Instagram stories. With red carpet style in short supply and fashion fans itching for a bit of bling, Lopez’s challenge offered a welcome moment of inspiration and glamour.
