Damn, J-Lo! The singing, dancing, and acting Latina vixen was in full femme-fatale form last night at the Fox All-Star party in LA. Always ready to turn heads, Jennifer Lopez looked sexy and glamorous in her body-hugging little black dress, from Ermanno Scervino's Resort 2014 collection. Crafted from leather and sheer lace panels, the lingerie-inspired silhouette featured a corset-like bodice with a trompe d'oeil nude effect. Her smoky eye, tousled long hair, and bright lip enhanced the babe effect.

For those of us who wouldn't dare to step out in full-on leather and sheer lace regalia, we can use J.Lo's super glam look as inspiration for our own take on this sultry trend. All it takes is that perfect dress, a shake of the hair, and a meaningful pout. To properly awaken your muse, here are five of our favorite lingerie-inspired gowns. Be warned, though: if you wear this look right, the paparazzi just might follow you home, too.
