Jennifer Lopez, who presented the award for Best Costume Design and Best Makeup at the 84th Annual Academy Awards, has divided opinion with her plunging Zuhair Murad couture gown.
The dress, which features a plunging neckline and cut-out sleeves, has polarized opinion from bloggers, fashion critics and commentators. On the red-carpet, she told TIM GUNN, "I've always loved fashion since I was a little girl.I enjoy playing dress up.I grew up in the Bronx, my style was very kind of street and hip-hoppy. I still have a little bit of that, it evolves". Though the gown has received some praise, mainly from correspondents on the red-carpet, it didn't go down well on social networks. One critical Twitter user said, "I bet Jennifer Lopez is furious that they didn't have a chance to finish her dress before she had to present". However, another was more complimentary, saying, "No one uses tape on a dress like Jennifer Lopez. The tape gods have to be pleased. Absolutely gorgeous!"
Though unconfirmed, the Huffington Post reports that Lopez also suffered a wardrobe malfunction while presenting with Cameron Diaz. The website wrote, "Where is the worst place to have a wardrobe malfunction?", adding, "It was barely there - let's call it the nip slip that wasn't -- but Lopez almost had an embarrassing moment while presenting an Oscar on stage with Cameron Diaz. Her low-cut dress was stunning, but perhaps she should have made sure she was taped in there a little better".
