"Jeninfer Lopez appeared in her iconic year 2000 Versace dress again this year for Fashion Week!" Francesca told us. "She walked the Versace Runway and we are STILL living for it. As Latinas, J.Lo is the perfect last-minute costume!" J.Lo has so many iconic looks to recreate but her makeup usually stays the same and easy to copy.
