Jennifer Lopez's see-through dress hit all the right notes when she took to the red carpet ahead of her latest movie premiere.

She's not the only starlet who's chosen to dare to bare of late, as Salma Hayek's Golden Globes dress proves, skin is in and we absolutely love it! JLo's rendition of the iconic look took center stage when she stepped out for the premiere of Shotgun Wedding, a rom-com also starring  Josh Duhamel, Lenny Kravitz, and beloved White Lotus star Jennifer Coolidge. 

We can't help but wonder if Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck's family news - which she says is a 'dream come true' - is enhancing madam's glow as she sparkles and shines in the daring look.

The sheer number was one of TWO transparent looks for the evening but this particular gown, with sheer fabric, sparkle for days, and a train long enough to make quite the entrance had an unusual aspect - a bright bow underneath it. The bright, canary yellow sash was tied in a big bow at the waist and was accented by a matching clutch. If anyone can pull it off, JLo can. 

Her second look, from legendary fashion house Valentino, was an Art Deco inspired tiered cropped number that showed off lashings of leg and looked ideal for taking to the dance floor at the premiere's after-party.

Her latest film, due to premiere on Amazon Prime on January 27, tells the story of a wedding day that goes slightly awry when it turns into a hostage crisis - which sets it apart from your regular wedding film. This, according to the talented actor and singer was why she was up for taking the role.

“I love doing the action, I’ve done a lot of romantic comedies," said Jennifer, speaking to PA News. "Somebody told me (I’ve done) eight wedding movies."

The actor reflected on the fact that when she began shooting this film, she'd just done Marry Me and that made her a little hesitant to walk down the aisle yet again. There's no denying that Jennifer knows how to rock bridal chic and play the bride, as evident in all those movies and her real-life nuptials, as she's been married four times. 

"I was like ‘do I want to do another wedding movie?’ but it was so funny and so well written and at the same time was the first time I would be doing an action-romantic comedy," she said. "So that was a new challenge for me.”

With any action movie, there's a lot of, well, action. As the unforgettable Hustlers proves, yes we mean that pole dancing scene, Jennifer isn't afraid to up he training regimen to prepare for a role. Incredibly, however, that was not the case for her action rom-com. “I just threw myself into it like Lucille Ball," she said, "got my Lucy on and threw myself this way and that way – I just had a ball with it – see what I did there?”
