COMPLIMENTS Don’t Cost A Thing, but copying Beyonce’s stage style landed Jennifer Lopez in hot water. 

Jen’s show at Sunday’s American Music Awards reminded Bey’s army of her 2014 Grammys gig. Jen, 51, was accused of imitating Beyonce, 39, with her sheer black bodystocking. And not for the first time.

Bey bared all in a micro-mini skirt on stage in Florida in 2004, pairing the look with a glittery bikini top.

Jennifer wore the skimpy outfit first back in 1999 at the Billboard Music Awards.

Fans say she’s a thighly deserving winner this time.

DESIGNER CHIC

Beyonce proved she was top diva when she wore a statement gown by French designer Thierry Mugler for her music video in 2008.

J-Lo hit the 1998 Cannes Film Festival in the same metallic dress.

But Beyonce’s fierce look in the shapely gown wins the round.

TOO FUR

Beyoncé often imitates J.Lo’s style both onstage and on the red carpet. That’s not a dig. Everyone takes style inspiration from someone. Beyoncé sometimes takes hers from J.Lo and, as it turns out, J.Lo sometimes takes hers from Beyoncé.
