Outfit Obsession: J Lo's Throwback '90s Outfit Is My Weekend Look of 2020

Truth be told, I have been modeling all my lockdown outfits after this Jennifer Lopez throwback look, perhaps without knowing it. She wore this longline cardigan, buttoned only at the top, over a pair of silk lounge pants at ShoWest '96 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Either the image has been subconsciously planted in my head in a dream or this minimalist, monochrome loungewear style is just back again, plain and simple. While Jennifer opted for a soft lilac set, I'm now determined to find matching cardis for all my satin trousers in every color of the rainbow.

"This effortless mood is so my move."

J Lo's loose pants skimmed the floor, but still allowed us a peek at her heeled sandals and lavender metallic toe polish - this being a beauty move we'd see carried right into the early aughts. There's no denying that the silhouette of a cardigan that's extended a few inches, flowing right over the hips, elongates the frame - especially when part of a monochrome ensemble. While I might be wearing my makeshift coordinates with slippers and a lacy bralette that peeks out ever-so-slightly from my neckline, this effortless mood is so my move. How about a round of applause for some A+ J Lo fashion nostalgia?

  • Billy Porter's Costumes on Pose Will No Doubt Go Down in History

    Even if you haven't watched Pose yet (and what are you waiting for?!), you probably already know that Billy Porter's costumes on the show are iconic. The hit FX drama, which is produced by Ryan Murphy, is groundbreaking because it's about LGBTQ+ New York City ballroom culture in the late '80s and early '90s. When the show first premiered in 2018, it made history as the scripted series with the most transgender actors appearing as series regulars ever. Billy Porter is one of the many standout stars who has caught our attention, thanks to his portrayal of Pray Tell. He became the first openly gay Black man to win an Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a drama series for his role in 2019, and also won the world over with his flashy outfits on the show. Costume designers Lou Eyrich and Analucia McGorty were in charge of bringing Billy's larger than life character to the screen. To capture Pray Tell's essence, the costume designers chose pieces that helped cement Billy's place as a fashion icon both on and off the show. In an interview with Los Angeles Times, Eyrich and McGorty revealed how they nailed Billy's looks. "We get clothes from vintage stores and secondhand places and revise them. Maybe we'd have things from the '70s, which is authentic to what the dancers used, which is to find stuff at the Salvation Army and remake it as something on-trend and stylish," they stated. From embellished button-downs paired with printed pants to chic silk robes worn over striped blouses, the duo certainly nailed Pray Tell's outfits on the show.

  • Cara Delevingne Looks Good in Any Hairstyle She Tries, and Here's the Proof

    Cara Delevingne is many things: a successful model, actor, activist, and brand ambassador. And she just so happens to always have incredible hair while doing all three. When it comes to her hair, let's just say that she's definitely not scared to try ... well, anything. In the beginning of her career - when she was walking every single runway show in New York, London, Milan, and Paris, and simultaneously making her acting debut in Anna Karenina - she pretty much left her mid-length, ash-blond hair alone. But that didn't keep her from experimenting with lots of different styles. In those early years, she played around with plaits and waves and the occasional hat or hair accessory. In March 2017, Delevingne made a big change, cutting her hair into a long bob and bleaching it a shade of platinum blond that was so light, it almost looked white. But the shorter cut didn't stop her from doing the plaits and waves she loved before, proving to the naysayers just how versatile short hair can be. Three months later, Delevingne dared for an even bigger hair change, arriving at the Met Gala in May 2017 with her head shaved, which she did for her role in Life in a Year. But even a buzz cut didn't stop Delevingne from having fun with her beauty look. For the Met Gala, she decorated her shaved head with silver paint and jewels, hinting at all the fun colors and designs her and her go-to hairstylist, Mara Roszak, would try in the weeks and months to come. In 2019, Delevingne has embarked on the tedious process of growing out her hair, but the actor's met the challenge head on . . . literally. She's masked the awkward regrowth phase with strategically placed accessories, half wigs, and twisted top knots. Due to coronavirus, we haven't had quite as many hair moments in 2020 so far, but luckily Delevingne served some fabulous looks just before the global pandemic hit, including old Hollywood-style waves and an orange feathered ponytail. Ahead, we rounded up Delevingne's red carpet hair highlights so that you can follow the star's ever-changing hair evolution - and hey, maybe even get inspired to finally make a big hair change of your own.
