Jennifer Lopez went for the bold on last night’s American Idol, as she rocked yet another minidress, this time opting for a look with some major 80s flare. The triple threat donned a black sheer Jill Stuart dress with gold dotted detailing styled with a leather harness straight from the designer’s fall 2014 runway. She completed her look with edgy Brian Atwood studded ankle-cuff sandals (which you can buy at saks.com) and a myriad of gold jewels.
To top off the rock n’ roll ensemble, her beauty team went with dramatic eye makeup and a disheveled bouffant. “We were inspired by Madonna’s 80s make up from Desperately Seeking Susan, but made it our own with the glowy skin and glossy lips,” makeup artist Mary Phillips tells InStyle.com. “The hair was inspired by tonight’s American Idol theme, which was ‘totally 80s.’ I created a wavy style and then put it into a messy updo,” says hairstylist Lorenzo Martin.
