Although her stylist slammed furious web speculation that Lopez, 42, suffered a televised wardrobe malfunction in the frock, the singer, actress and American Idol judge was definitely making a statement -- but to whom?
During her seven-year marriage to Anthony, 43, Lopez's super-sexy style was a point of contention, insiders previously told Us Weekly.
"He would make her feel terrible about herself if she wanted to wear something sexy," a source said. "He likes her to dress in a demure, 'wife' style. He hated the fact that she was as a sex symbol."
In fact, at a 2010 cover shoot for Us Weekly, the often-controlling Anthony objected to one revealing pic of his wife which he found "too sexy and unbecoming for a 40-year-old mother of two," another source said.
That's clearly not so much a problem with backup dancer Casper Smart, Lopez's 24-year-old beau of about three months. (After Lopez's headline making appearance onstage with Cameron Diaz, Smart was her date at Vanity Fair's Oscars afterparty Sunday evening.)
