Stating the obvious: Jennifer Lopez looked amazing at the 2018 MTV VMAs.

We know, it's not exactly news to anyone's ears that Lopez has been killing the red carpet game for years now, but she still managed to deliver a high-caliber fashion moment when the stakes were high.

J.Lo hit the carpet on Monday evening in a glittering silver one-shoulder gown, a matching clutch in hand. She wore her long blonde locks parted down the middle in a Cher-like 'do.

It's not shocking that she dressed to the nines, since she was basically the biggest winner of the entire event. Lopez is a 23-time nominee (and two-time winner) of the MTV VMAs, but she came on Monday to accept the night's highest honor: the 2018 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

"It's an insane night for me," Lopez said during her pre-show interview. "It's a really special thing ... winning this award, an honor. It's just crazy to me. I don't have words. This is my town, I feel so at home here ... it's gonna be a great time." 

The award is given to a recipient who has great musical and film accomplishments, and one quick look at J.Lo's discography and IMDB page (seriously, she's been in so many movies) tells you she's a perfect fit for it. Last year, Pink took home the award, and in the years before her, Rihanna, Kanye West, and Beyoncé were recipients, so clearly they're all in good company.
