Jennifer Lopez sparkles in $7,884 Gucci co-ordinate set

Not everyone dresses to the nines of taco night – but Jennifer Lopez does! Jenny from the Block completely dazzled on Wednesday evening (Dec. 27) in a stunning $7,884 co-ordinate set from high end Italian brand Gucci. The set featured a $3,814 top and matching $4,069 trousers in purple and black vertical stripes. It hugged her curves and sparkled as she posed for a series of snaps that featured on her Instagram account. The singer was hosting a taco night for some of her dearest (and most famous) friends, including reality star Kim Kardashian, her sister Kourtney and mother Kris Jenner, Joan Collins and of course, her boyfriend Alex Rodriguez.

The singer and actress pulled out all the stops in her show-stopping outfit which had a definite festive edge – it was covered in crystal embellishments and the trousers had a distinctive retro flare. It flattered her curvaceous physique to perfection and made the most of her gym-honed body. Jennifer, 49, wore her brunette tresses in a sleek and straight style which looked incredibly healthy and in tip-top condition. She sported flawless make-up which featured smoky eye shadow, smouldering lashes and her trademark nude lipstick. She left most of her accessories at home but choose to add large hoop earrings to the ensemble.

The mother of twins Max and Emme, both nine, looked to have a wonderful Christmas. The Love Don't Cost a Thing singer uploaded a group shot of her family on Christmas day, snuggled in pyjamas as they enjoyed the festivities. Jennifer and her ex-husband, singer Marc Antony met in New York earlier in December to support their children – as they performed in their school's Christmas pageant. The pair have remained amicable since their split in 2011 after seven years of marriage. The Maid in Manhattan actress has been with boyfriend Alex Rodriguez since May and the relationship appears to have moved very quickly, with the loved-up couple posting plenty of romantic pictures on their social media platforms.
