Jennifer Lopez kicked off her Las Vegas residency in a sea of sparkles and feathers.
The Jenny from the Block singer is the newest resident on the Sin City strip, opening her All I Have show at Planet Hollywood’s AXIS on Wednesday night (20Jan16). Not only were fans excited to hear her belt out her biggest hits, but her Versace-designed stage wardrobe was also a high point.
The pieces have been designed by Donatella Versace herself, with help from costumers and stylists Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn.
“If there’s anything Jennifer is known for, it’s glamor,” Rob gushed to Vogue.com. “We decided to go over the top with a belted Swarovski crystal jacket, adorned in luxe white feathers from head to toe. This is the ultimate Old Hollywood ‘just lounging look.’ And by ‘just lounging,’ we mean exuding all kinds of exaggerated glamor.”
The outfit has a total of 260,000 crystals, in colors ranging from Amethyst to Light Siam and Jet. It was no easy task for the dressmakers, taking 1,400 hours to create.
Another bling Swarovski look is a nude body stocking encrusted with the jewels to form the illusion of a bikini. Strands of crystals fall to her stomach and also snake around the top of her thighs. The look is completed with a floor length white fur jacket.
While white and silver shades feature heavily, Donatella also throws in splashes of vivid colour too. A street inspired outfit made up of pink spangly trousers, a blue, white, yellow and green bodysuit and striped jacket, all emblazoned with the word BRONX, is finished with a crystal-covered hot pink New York Yankees cap.
Jennifer has signed a 20-date residency deal, which currently runs until 12 June (16).
