Jennifer Lopez | Jennifer Lopez remembers making her own prom dress

Jennifer Lopez has created her own prom dress.

The ‘Jenny From The Block’ singer recalled the special dress – a pink satin and lace ensemble – that she created for the dance with then-boyfriend David Cruz, and she admitted that she “had a vision”.

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, she said: “I made my ball gown. A pink halter, mermaid. Pink satin with lace on top.

“I drew it and gave it to this neighborhood seamstress and said, ‘This is the dress I want to make.’ I had a vision.”

J-Lo – who grew up in the Bronx – also reflected on how designer shoes lined up against a wall in a London hotel suite made her realize how much her life had changed forever as her film and musical career began in the late 1990s.

She recalled: “I was like, ‘I remember having holes in the bottom of my sneakers’. I was just like, ‘Is this happening?

“It was almost like a ****** fairy tale. And it wasn’t about his wealth. It was about change, about disparity.

“That hotel suite was bigger than the house I grew up in. Much bigger.”

Although the 52-year-old star is now used to her wealth, she still feels like an ‘underdog’ given her ‘bottom-up scrapping’ journey.

She explained, “I think I’m an underdog. I always feel like I’m starting from the bottom. Always. I always felt like I wasn’t the one who was supposed to be in the room.

“It’s part of being Puerto Rican and from the Bronx and being a woman. You know what I mean? All of that.

“Not being born into a family with money. Not knowing anybody in the business. I just went over there and said, ‘F*** it. I’m just gonna try. I’m gonna try to enter here.’ ”
