J Lo got there first, girl.

Which isn’t to say Miss Nicki’s not making this look her own, but divas have to recognize when another diva beat them to it. We like this version much better than J Lo’s, though;partially because the color looks amazing on her and partially because the more formal length and the accompanying flare of the skirt helps to balance out all the … visual information up top. And her head styling is gorgeous.

But we’ll say the same thing we said when Jenny wore it: This isn’t a dress you wear because you want to look pretty or hot or chic. This is a dress you wear so you can say to all those other bitches “I can work this dress and you probably can’t.”
