Since she emerged onto the Hollywood scene in the 1990s, it’s been hard not to love everything about Jennifer Lopez. She’s given us a lifetime of bops, like “I’m Real” and “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.” She’s starred in some of our favorite movies, from Maid in Manhattan to Selena.

Her booty-grazing ponytails and extensions prove hair hath no limits, and her signature peach lipstick is one that should be sold en masse.
