Pics that prove J.Lo's VMA style has come a long way since the early 2000s

Tonight, she will accept the Vanguard award at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards.

On Monday night, Jennifer Lopez will accept the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, but one key question remains unanswered. What will she wear?

The "Dinero" singer and former fly girl, 49, has evolved from her bedazzled bandanas while maintaining bombshell looks. Here's a glimpse of Lopez's style over nearly two decades at the VMAs.

Lopez paired a floppy hat with over-the-knee boots and a sheer, leopard mini dress, the same year she and Ja Rule performed their hit track, "I'm Real (Murder Remix)."
