This year Jennifer Lopez will be lighting up Vegas with a three year splashy show at The Axis, Planet Hollywood, in Las Vegas Nevada. The first month of her show sold out, with eleven more months on the way. In her promotional poster, she is seen wearing a skeleton-like halter top with rags-like skirt, and both are entrusted with glittering Swarovski crystals. Jennifer Lopez always seeks the unusual in her costumes, while remaining classy and unique.
This is just one of the costumes she’ll be wearing at the show. Apparently her costume designers have made lavish use of over 260,000 Swarovski crystals. While many showstoppers such as Madonna may wear two or three glittery costumes for their tour, Jennifer Lopez has chosen to adorn most of her costumes with these jewels—after all Las Vegas is all about glitz and glamour.
With a three year contract in Vegas, it will be exciting to see the additional changes that she promises to make to the show to keep it fresh for those who wish to revisit her performance, as well as to see how her costumes keep up with all the action. In one set she wears the traditional showgirl costume under a white fox fur coat lined with satin. The bodice and miniskirt of the outfit are minimal, and encrusted with hundreds of Swarovski crystals. Even her bodysuit is glittering with crystals. For JLo’s performances, apparently she has so many outfits changes that people’s eyes can’t take it all in. Another notable costume is a long sleeved body suit, leaving the legs bare. The bodysuit is encrusted with blue and dark green gems, perhaps like a flower, and there are several strings of gems hanging down to make a “skirt”.
In one outfit she hides beneath a Chinese-inspired hat while being fully covered in gold sparkly diamond fabric that is also encrusted with jewels. J.Lo had her parade of glittery fashions created by the top fashion designers of today. Versace, Zuhair Murad, Nicolas Jebran, and Michael Costello were all responsible for her fabulous costumes.
Jennifer wore a variety of different clothing at the show, each embellished with a variety of different coloured Swarovski crystals. There were bikinis, a cape, gowns, and bodysuits. An awful lot of crystals have embellished her costumes, and a lot of labour went into making them. For just her Versace costumes, it took two months to make them all, and about 1400 hours to attach the crystals. Besides her costumes, over 75,000 Swarovski crystals were also used to decorate the stage set.
They were used in the making of nine different set pieces.There’s something about crystals that screams “superstar”. Swarovski crystals will outshine any other type of crystal due to their craftsmanship, cut and last-long durability that promises to last as long as the life of the costume. For the woman who is wishing to glamourize her costumes, Swarovski crystals is the best choice in beautiful, lavish costume making. Choice Swarovski rhinestone also for your costume or dress.
