Jennifer Lopez wears Furne One
Carnival meets couture as Jennifer Lopez wears Filipino designer’s creation in a new music video.
Former Zee editor Furne One’s successful design career in Dubai has been well-documented. Since launching the avant-garde fashion brand Amato Couture in 2002, he has since gained an international following of celebrity clientele that includes the likes of Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Kesha.
The latest addition to Furne’s ever-growing fashion repertoire is Jennifer Lopez. In her newly debuted music video, Medicine, the multi-awarded pop diva shows a flamboyantly chic medley of fashion and music as she wears pieces from the brand. However, this isn’t the first time Lopez has been seen wearing Furne’s creations. She performed her hit single, On the Floor, in 2011 with a sheer silver dress made by the label.
In the video, Lopez can be seen wearing a white ruffled one-piece suit from Furne’s 2018/19 haute couture collection. A closer look at the suit shows off the intricate pearl and crystal detailing embedded between the ruffles, giving Lopez an ethereal glow as she maneuvers the crystal ball.
Translated from Latin as love conquers all, the Amor Vincit Omnia collection is a romantic take on Victorian-inspired pieces while the feathered white details are reminiscent of the similarly named painting of Cupid by Caravaggio.
