Still going strong: Jennifer Lopez landed one of the 2018 TIME 100 covers, which has its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world
Work a white gown like J-Lo in Zuhair Murad
Jennifer Lopez unsurprisingly has found herself in Time magazine's top 100 most influential people in the world list and in turn bagged herself a cover too.
Being a well known actress, singer, humanitarian and a household name the world over, it's easy to see why J-Lo has taken a spot on the list.
She certainly owned the cover of the magazine too here, she looks like she means business in this dramatic dress. It's from Zuhair Murad's spring 2018 couture line and is a stunning piece with its plissé design, embroidered details and sexy plunging neckline. It' all finished off with fabulous feathered shoulder details too. What's not to love about this statement number?
You cannot buy it, click right to shop the ready-to-wear line at NET-A-PORTER. Alternatively, work it in white in one of our alternative dress options below.
Her stunning cover, where she wore a low-cut white dress, was shot by photographer Peter Hapak for TIME.
Kerry Washington wrote about J-Lo for the issue.
'Jennifer Lopez is an iconic performer,' began the Scandal actress.
'She's the first Latina actor to earn over $1 million for a film and the first woman to have a No. 1 album and a No. 1 movie in the same week.

'But she's also a mother, an entrepreneur, an activist, a designer, a beauty icon, a philanthropist and a producer.
'She is an undeniable force and a powerful example - not just for women of color but for anyone who has been made to feel 'other' and for everyone who carries the burden and the privilege of being a first.
TV gold: The Latin looker also stars on the NBC series Shades Of Blue, which will end after its third season
'To me, no matter how successful she becomes, she will always be Jenny from our block. And I will always be a grateful witness to her journey.'
This year Lopez is on TV with Shades Of Blue and Wold Of Dance - and she produces both of those shows.
She also has concert dates in Las Vegas for All I Have. And she is coming out with a Spanish language album that includes Amor Amor Amor.
And later this year the dynamo can be seen in the movie Second Act, a film she is starring in and producing. Leah Remini and Vanessa Hudgens are also in the film.
The star is dating Alex Rodriguez and has two children, Max and Emme, with musician Marc Anthony.
The 15th annual list includes: Steven Spielberg on Greta Gerwig, Barack Obama on the Parkland students, Adele on Rihanna, Jamie Dimon on Jeff Bezos, Lee Daniels on Jesmyn Ward, Elton John on Prince Harry, Priyanka Chopra on Meghan Markle, Lynda Carter on Gal Gadot, Cyndi Lauper on Kesha, Sheryl Sandberg on Jacinda Ardern, James Corden on Sonia Friedman, Michael Bloomberg on Sadiq Khan, Eddy Cue on Kevin Durant, Emeril Lagasse on José Andrés, Cecile Richards on Nancy Pelosi, and more.

'The TIME 100, always a reflection of its moment, looks quite different than in the past,' notes TIME Editor-in-Chief Edward Felsenthal.
'Influence increasingly knows no single zip code and no minimum age and a common theme in the tributes is how much we can learn from the young.'
The list also features U.S. President Donald Trump, and other U.S. political figures including Nancy Pelosi, Scott Pruitt, Jeff Sessions, Robert Mueller, Maxine Waters and more.
She made the list too: Naomi Watts on Nicole Kidman: 'Dead Calm was released in 1989. Big Little Lies was released in 2017. In the interim, Nicole Kidman has never once left our consciousness. And even after decades, she continues to break new ground' seen on Sunday
There were plenty of highlights from the entries.
Naomi Watts on Nicole Kidman: 'Dead Calm was released in 1989. Big Little Lies was released in 2017. In the interim, Nicole Kidman has never once left our consciousness. And even after decades, she continues to break new ground.'
Bill Gates on Roger Federer: 'Roger knows that effective philanthropy, like great tennis, requires discipline and time. It will be a sad day for all of us fans when he hangs up his racket—but we can take comfort in knowing that he's committed to making the world a more equitable place.'
Barack Obama on Jaclyn Corin, Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg, Cameron Kasky, and Alex Wind: 'This generation—of Parkland, of Dreamers, of Black Lives Matter—embraces that duty. If they make their elders uncomfortable, that's how it should be. Our kids now show us what we've told them America is all about, even if we haven't always believed it ourselves: that our future isn't written for us, but by us.'
This must make him thrilled: Donald Trump also landed on the list; seen on Wednesday
Ted Cruz on Donald Trump: 'President Trump is a flashbang grenade thrown into Washington by the forgotten men and women of America. The fact that his first year as Commander in Chief disoriented and distressed members of the media and political establishment is not a bug but a feature…. President Trump is doing what he was elected to do: disrupt the status quo. That scares the heck out of those who have controlled Washington for decades, but for millions of Americans, their confusion is great fun to watch.'
LL Cool J on Kehinde Wiley: 'Kehinde Wiley is a classically, formally trained artist who is transforming the way African Americans are seen—going against the grain of what the world is accustomed to. Some consider him irreverent; I see an iconoclast. Some of his subjects come from hip-hop culture, but he's not a hip-hop painter. To put it simply, he does dope sh-t.'
New to the scene: Taraji P. Henson on Cardi B: 'She's clear on her talent, and she's not trying to get in anybody else's lane.' Seen last week in NYC
Jill Soloway on Judy Chicago: 'Her moment is finally here again, and everyone can see she is our legacy, our great, our modern Frida, the should-have-been Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol or whatever men got credited with inventing everything. She deserves every ounce of this brand-new but totally necessary showing of attention, resources, and tons and tons of love.'
Taraji P. Henson on Cardi B: 'She's clear on her talent, and she's not trying to get in anybody else's lane. She recorded 'Bodak Yellow' because it's what she loved. Now she's the biggest thing in music. And even with all those eyeballs watching, she's still unapologetically herself…. Cardi B's here to stay, baby, and I'm happy to be a witness.'
Jaha Dukureh on Nice Nailantei Leng'ete: 'Nice is an extraordinary example of young African girls standing up for themselves. After the loss of her parents, she could have given up and followed the norm, knowing that challenging attitudes in male-dominated communities can get you cast out. But instead, she fought to get an education so she could help change the socio¬cultural structures that continue to impede women's lives and well-being.'
Ashley Judd on Ronan Farrow, Jodi Kantor, and Megan Twohey: 'Their devotion to capturing with precision and depth details spanning three decades of Harvey's gross entitlement to female bodies ignited the Reckoning…. Farrow, Kantor and Twohey amply demonstrate journalism's power, igniting the individual and collective passion that has led to empowering movements such as #MeToo and Time's Up. I, for one, am grateful.'
Fan: Adele on Rihanna: 'Whenever I've met her, she's been the most gracious, loyal and funny goofball of an icon. She glows like when someone's taken a picture with a flash and you're dazed for a few minutes after'
Sean 'Diddy' Combs on Chadwick Boseman: 'It feels like every time Chadwick Boseman appears onscreen, he's finding a new way to inspire…. And now as the Black Panther, he's inspiring everyone, but especially black youth, who deserve to see superheroes like them, to show them that truly anyone can be a superhero; this matters, because it has been a long time coming to see our own superheroes and the power that they can have on all of us in society.'
Steve Case on Pony Ma: 'Today, 3 billion people are connected across a broad range of digital devices. Pony Ma deserves a lot of credit for that growth, and for helping shift the perception of China from being skilled at replication to being a global leader in innovation.'
She wrote an item: Cher on Adam Rippon: 'Adam is a skater who happens to be gay, and that represents something wonderful to young people'
John Mayer on Shawn Mendes: 'His songs are often his interpretation of music he's fallen in love with, sometimes while he's still on his honeymoon with it. Shawn has a very strong, clear, wide-eyed view of the world, and I can't wait to see what he hears next.'
Yara Shahidi on Maxine Waters: 'When other policymakers criminalize protests, she is there, verbalizing our pain. She fights for funding to support neglected communities. And she takes to Twitter to raise her voice on our behalf, whether or not Congress is in session. In this time of sociopolitical unrest, Congresswoman Waters has been the brilliant, tenacious representative of the people that we all need.'
Marc Benioff on Adam Neumann: 'With collaborative work¬spaces, startup incubators, gyms and housing, Adam is ¬revolutionizing the way we work and reimagining how we live. At a time of declining public trust in nearly every institution, Adam and I connect on leading values-driven companies that serve a larger purpose, beyond making money.'
Lupita Nyong'o on Trevor Noah: 'A fantastic storyteller, he has always been a defier of rules, which he broke simply by being born in his native country. At The Daily Show, which he has truly globalized, Trevor seeks out comedians of color in every possible venue, no matter how small. He is determined to find the best talent representing the most diverse viewpoints.'
Vin Diesel on Deepika Padukone: 'So often in the entertainment industry we deal in stereotypes, and people get stuck in certain markets. Deepika is the best Earth has to offer. She's not just here to represent India; she's here to represent the world.'
Hot again: Roseanne Barr, who is having a major comeback with her Roseanne reboot, is also on the TIME list; seen with Laurie Metcalf
Adele on Rihanna: 'Whenever I've met her, she's been the most gracious, loyal and funny goofball of an icon. She glows like when someone's taken a picture with a flash and you're dazed for a few minutes after. But it's also very clear in that glow that she genuinely doesn't give a f-ck; she's fearless and full of all the right kind of attitude to be everything that she is and will be forever.'
Cher on Adam Rippon: 'Adam is a skater who happens to be gay, and that represents something wonderful to young people…. Adam shows people that if you put blood, sweat and tears into what you're doing, you can achieve something that's special. You can be special. And I think that's very brave.'
Leslie Jones on Christian Siriano: 'He makes every piece feel like you are supposed to have it and like it was made for you. He has his talents and then incorporates them into what you want, which in the end is something that both of us want, making him a one-of-a-kind designer.'
Chatter: Jimmy Kimmel made the list for his political statements on his late night talk show
Thomas Pesquet on Peggy Whitson: 'It's no wonder that Peggy has almost single-handedly redefined the role of women in space exploration. She is now the most successful astronaut in the history of the United States, having spent a record-breaking 665 cumulative days in space and contributing to hundreds of scientific experiments while she was there.'
