Jennifer Lopez Beauty Evolution: From Curly-Haired Fly Girl To Bronzed Pop Star (PHOTOS)

When most people think of Jennifer Lopez, the physical traits that usually come to mind are her bronze glow, "brond" hair and banging body. But the Bronx-born beauty has certainly had her share of not-so-glamorous moments.

From her humble beginnings as a Fly Girl on Fox's sketch comedy series "In Living Color" to dancing backup for megastar Janet Jackson, Lopez sported '90s bold brows and dark lipstick before embracing a B-girl style of small braids and blinged-out bandanas and glossy lips. However, after splitting with Puff Daddy in 2001 and hooking up with Ben Affleck a year later, we noticed that the dancer-turned-actress-turned-singer took a sophisticated turn with soft curls and peachy cheeks. And in spite of her pending divorce to Marc Anthony, she's been able to save face and stay beautiful -- no doubt her much-younger beau Casper Smart is part of the reason.

As J.Lo celebrates her 43rd birthday on Tuesday (July 24th), we're taking a look back at the diva's makeup and hair over the years. Vote on all her looks in the slideshow below.
