Jennifer Lopez

Lopez wore a black, one-shouldered dress by Anthony Vaccarello—with a high slit. And, referring to the Grammy’s recent policy banning stars from showing too much cleavage on the red carpet, Lopez said: “They didn’t say anything about leg. I thought I was being such a good girl—a little shoulder, a little leg.”
