Jennifer Lopez sure has come a long way from the block!

The sexy songstress hit Fox's 2014 Winter TCA Press Tour in Los Angeles on Monday and looked hotter than she did nearly 20 years ago when she got her first big break in the 1997 award-winning flick, "Selena."

The 44-year-old showcased her killer curves in a black Ermano Scervino dress, which she paired with a set of Jimmy Choo heels, diamond hoop earrings, and a bright orange lip color. She polished off her head-turning ensemble with sleek, blown-out curls.

Later that day, she stopped by "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." The famous chat show host took her on a trip down memory lane by reminding her of her first appearance on his show 17 years ago.

"You had a star power that was exciting," Leno complimented. "And you look exactly the same!"



Even J.Lo herself joked that she hasn't changed a bit by posting a shot on Instagram of her appearance on Leno with the caption, "J &J #samegirl."

Fans of the pop powerhouse will remember that she posted another shot on Instagram on Dec. 30 with the same hashtag, where was posing at the subway station in her old Bronx neighborhood in a pair of figure hugging jeans, heeled booties, a puffy jacket, and a Yankees hat.



The hashtag is referencing her new track "Same Girl," in which she sings about going back to her old neighborhood in New York City. While the mother-of-two appears to be same girl at heart, she certainly isn't the same girl in the fashion department.

We'd beg that the Bronx-bred bombshell looks better than ever with her lightened locks and buff bod, which she's regularly been putting on display as she promotes "American Idol" and her upcoming album. Despite that, she admitted in an interview with "On Air With Ryan Seacrest" that her style isn't as planned out as we thought. "I lay down a couple of choices in the morning; then I choose while I am doing hair and makeup," she said of her style choices on the show.

The "On the Floor" singer will head back to her old stomping grounds on Wednesday when she returns as a judge for Season 13 of "Idol" and we have to wonder if her spicy leather and lace look was just a ploy to get us to tune into the struggling singing competition.

We gotta say J.Lo, if that was your plan, it is working.
