Sorry Beyonce, J.Lo Did It First

Love her or hate her, you have to admit: J.Lo is a trailblazer. From red carpets to movie screens to packed venues, the Boricua has always worked to step up her game and has influenced millions of fans. But there's one fan that might be a bit more famous than all the rest: Beyonce! It seems Bey has been taking style notes from Jennifer for years. Don't believe us? Take a look:

1. Bikini Top & Mini Skirt Performance

J.Lo: December 8, 1999 at the Billboard Music Awards

Beyonce: March 12, 2004 at the "Verizon Ladies First Tour"

Need we say more? 


2. Big Bling Earrings

J.Lo: March 23, 2003 at the 75th Annual Academy Awards

Beyonce: July 1, 2003 at the premiere of Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle

The 'do, the dress, the earrings - there's no denying the look Beyonce is going for!


3. Glam Updo & Black Gown

J.Lo: September 29, 2005 at Macy's Passport Gala 

Beyonce: December 7, 2008 at the Kennedy Center for Kennedy Center Honors

Black dress with sweetheart neckline? Check. Beehive updo? Check. 


4. Deep Side Part & Retro Waves

J.Lo: January 13, 2013 at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards 

Beyonce: January 31, 2013 at the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show Press Conference

While Beyonce looks great, no one rocks the deep side part and retro waves quite like J.Lo.


5. Black Lace Crop Top

J.Lo: November 29, 2001 at the Onda Music Awards Show

Beyonce: December 19, 2002 at a Destiny's Child performance

We guess performances in the early millenium meant black crop tops.


6. Fur Coat

J.Lo: February 26, 2003 at the after party for Maid in Manhattan

Beyonce: February 1, 2006 in New York City

No outfit is complete without a (faux) fur coat, right Beyonce? 


7. Poufy Curls

J.Lo: March 24, 2002 at the 74th Annual Academy Awards

Beyonce: June 27, 2003 at CBS Early Show

Beyonce also seems to be a fan of the golden curled hair pulled half-back look. 


8. Sparkly Bodysuit

J.Lo: December 31, 2009 at the Times Square New Year's Eve Celebration 

Beyonce: December 6, 2013 at The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour 

Sparkles! Both seem to be a fan of sparkly jumpsuits for onstage performances, but sorry Beyonce, J.Lo beat you to it.


9. Sparkly Deep V

J.Lo: December 4, 1999 at the VH1 and Vogue Fashion Awards

Beyonce: August 28, 2003 at the MTV Video Music Awards

You may be Queen Bey, but Jennifer rocked the plunging sparkle dress on the red carpet first.


10. White Cutout Top

J.Lo: 2001 in FHM magazine 

Beyonce: May 23, 2003 at the MTV Studios 

While J.Lo did it first, we have to admit - they both look great.
