Remember her? 'Carousel' actress rehearses with retro bikini

Jennifer Lopez shows off her curves in a thigh-hugging dress at Latin Grammys

She's one of the most instantly recognisable Latino stars, with a level of worldwide fame many of her contemporaries can only dream of.
So it was only to be expected that Jennifer Lopez would steal the show as she arrived for the Latin Grammys in a figure-hugging Andrew Gn keyhole dress last night.
But while her famous curves were as eye-catching as ever, she had plenty of competition from the crowd of stars walking the red carpet in Las Vegas.

Dresses in every shade of the rainbow, along with lashings of make-up, were the order of the night.

Actress Camilla Belle, whose mother is Brazilian, chose a stylish orange top and flowing skirt.
But her tasteful outfit was somewhat overshadowed by some of her more outlandish fellow red carpet stars.
The awards kicked off with Argentina's Gustavo Cerati picking up early awards for best rock album and song.

Cerati, who has been in a coma since suffering a stroke earlier this year, has been a fixture in Latin music for decades. He fronted the popular rock band Soda Stereo in the 1980s and 90s before launching a solo career.
