  • They say you should dress for the job you want and Jennifer Lopez dressed like a literal Oscar at last night’s 11th Annual Governors Awards.

    The actress was one of many A Listers, including Scarlett Johansson, Olivia Wilder and Saoirse Ronan, attending the event, which was hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, officially kicking off the Oscars 2020 season.

    J Lo went for gold in a super sleek strapless Reem Acra gown, which featured an oversized bow at the back (‘party in the back’ to quote Anne Hathaway).

    She wore her hair in an elegant braided top knot, and accessorised with plenty of diamonds, because this is the red carpet after all, and she ain’t taking no prisoners.

    The actress is tipped for an Oscars nod for her performance in Hustlers, and she’s certainly dressing for it.

    Plus, if her Versace performance at Milan Fashion Week was anything to go by, I say give that woman a damn award.

    The Oscars 2020 will place in February so there’s not too long to wait.
