On Thursday night’s American IdolJennifer Lopez went straight for the gold. Just the day before, she was charming us with her perfectly messy side braid and pastel-colored dress, but last night, she switched things up with a statement-making dress and matching jacket by Rachel Zoe, paired with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and Marina B jewelry.

It wasn’t only her dress that wowed the crowd, either. Makeup artist Mary Phillips completed the look with metallics-inspired makeup as well.  “We wanted her makeup to match the gold in her dress,” she told InStyle.com exclusively. “[We did a] quick change to a bold lipstick for the performance, still keeping up with the gold theme.”
