Jennifer Lopez along with Lin-Manuel Miranda performed their benefit song “Love Make the World Go Round” on “The Tonight Show” Tuesday. But, the highlight of the performance was the 46-year-old’s dramatic 20-foot-long cape. The duo gave a power-packed performance for the Orlando shooting victims.
Jennifer Lopez appeared like a superwoman, who would just take off for flight any minute save someone from the clutches of evil like our very own childhood superheroes.
The cape was a work of art and not just any other normal design. It was a custom design by Michael Cinco.
The 44-year-old Filipino designer took more than six months to design the custom cape. The sprawling cape was hand-painted to look like stained glass church windows, inspired by Saint Chapelle, an iconic chapel in the heart of Paris. It was also embellished with 10,000 Swarovski crystals, which glistened throughout Jennifer Lopez’s performance, People reported.
The former “American Idol” judge paired the dramatic cape with black custom leggings which was also adorned with crystals. The piece is from Death by Dolls. Besides, the low-cut bustier was perfectly matched with her cape.
Jennifer Lopez, who is mom to twins Emme and Max, with her former husband Marc Anthony, mid-way into the performance removed her cape and revealed the strapless red, white and blue crystal-encrusted bustier.
Jennifer Lopez accessorized with diamond stud earrings and a stack of rings on both her hands. Her flawless makeup consisted of deep red lipstick, bronzer, pink blush, mascara and black eyeliner. The Bronx native’s long tresses were pulled back tightly and tied into top knot, while a part of her hair was styled into a braided ‘do’, the hottest hair trend this season.
Meanwhile, Miranda, 36, who is fresh off his final performance in Broadway’s “Hamilton,” opted for an understated look in a navy T-shirt, jeans and a baseball cap. The duo has topped music charts with their new song. Meanwhile, the singer was slammed on social media for a tweet that she sent out with the words “All Lives Matter” hashtag, The Independent reports.
The tweet was accompanied by an image of Lopez, performing with Miranda at a concert commemorating the victims of the Orlando shooting. The singer received backlash on social media and deleted the original tweet.
