The 53-year-old singer and actor gave a tour of her Los Angeles home, sharing details about her life and decades-long career, during an episode of Vogue’s“73 Questions” series. When asked what her favorite outfit she’s ever worn was, the Marry Me star gave a surprising answer.

The “On the Floor” singer went on to tell Vogue that “the size of [her] closet” is the main difference between the Bronx and her California home, and refers to her everyday style as “very relaxed and kind of tomboyish but with a little bit of sexy in it”.
As for her beauty secret, the Hustlers actor simply said: “Sleep.”
In 2000, Jennifer Lopez caught the world’s attention when she wore a green jungle-inspired Versace dress to the 42nd annual Grammy Awards.

She then stripped off the tux to reveal the now-famous green dress underneath.
