There’s more to Jennifer Lopez’s spot-on fashion choices than crystallized Zuhair Murad bodysuits and fluorescent caped gowns. For Thursday night’s episode of American Idol, the judge and Vegas performer, who’s currently working on new music, turned to one of Tinseltown’s most celebrated icons for a sleek outfit that’s not only classically timeless, but still delivers the sex appeal she’s known for.

“Tonight we went with a retro Hollywood look and channeled Elizabeth Taylor,” Lopez’s go-to stylists, Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, told InStyle. “To achieve that feel, Jennifer chose a classic white dress from Victoria Beckham’s collection. Then we paired it with simple, nude pumps (by Christian Louboutin) and finished the look with diamond, vintage-inspired earrings.”

It appears that J.Lo truly did love her side-swept curls and glamorous look. Moments before the episode kicked off, the singer and actress took to Instagram to share a gorgeously lit selfie.

She also posted an image of her Shades of Blue viewing party (she stars in the new NBC drama), which she held right inside her Idol trailer.
