J.Lo Brought Rock 'n' Roll Leather Glam to the MTV Movie & TV Awards

Jennifer Lopez has been pulling out all kinds of stunning looks on the red carpet, whether she's giving us wedding dress chic or reimagining her most iconic outfits from the past. Last night at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, the Marry Me actress was honored with the prestigious MTV Generation Award, which according to MTV, celebrates “beloved actors whose diverse contributions to both film and television have turned them into household names.” Of course, we knew J.Lo was going to look good as she accepted this honor, and she certainly didn't disappoint with her rock 'n' roll-inspired outfit.

The 52-year-old star showed up looking like Joan Jett in an all-black ensemble that was styled by Mariel Haenn and Rob Zangardi. The duo fitted the Hustlers actress in a black gown from MÔNOT, which included a floor-length skirt and a low-cut leather bodice with a zipper detail on the front. The dress was paired with a matching black clutch from Jimmy Choo, J.Lo brand Junnie shoes from DSW and silver jewelry courtesy of Candy Ice.

Lopez showed off her arrival on the red carpet with a video posted to Instagram, which she simply captioned, “Hi.”

As far as the rest of J.Lo's outfit goes, her wavy locks were styled by Chris Appleton, her nails were courtesy of Tom Bachik and her makeup was done by Mary Phillips.

We got another close-up look of Lopez's ensemble in a different post she made to Instagram. She captioned this, “Thank you @MTV and my incredible team. #OnMyWay #MTVAwards.”

It was a big night for Lopez, who not only won the MTV Generation Award, but also took home the prize for Best Song for her original track, “On My Way,” from her recent rom-com Marry Me.

At the end of the night, when Lopez accepted her Generation Award, she gave an emotional speech and reflected on her film career, saying, “I look at those movies and see all the wonderful people that I've been blessed to know and to work with. You're only as good as the people that you work with. And if you're lucky, they make you better. And I have been very lucky in that regard.”

Congrats, J.Lo (on the awards and that stunning dress)!
