J.Lo, 50, strips down to her iconic green Versace dress on 'Saturday Night Live'

Jennifer Lopez has stripped down to her iconic green Versace dress on Saturday Night Live.

Following guest appearances by James Corden, Paul Rudd and Jimmy Fallon, Jennifer took the stage in a tuxedo and began rattling off her highlights from the past year

“Being proposed to by a Yankee,” Jennifer said, also listing her role in Hustlers, and embarking on a world tour.

She also mentioned the slit-to-thigh green Versace dress she wore on the fashion label’s catwalk 20 years after turning heads at the Grammys in the same design.

“I walked the runway at Milan for the first time wearing a dress I wore 20 years ago,” the 50-year-old star told the crowd.

“Now some people said I look better now than I did then, and I’m not bragging — that’s just, you know, gossip.”

That last line got laughs from the audience, as did a gag in which cast member Beck Bennett’s head ‘exploded’ after hearing that Jennifer had recently turned 50.

After telling fans that ‘the best is yet to come’ — and comparing herself to a cockroach that won’t be written off — she launched into a festive take on Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town with an assist from the Radio City Rockettes.

And while those high kicks were impressive, nothing could top J.Lo’s flashy final act.

In a nod to her role as Ramona in Hustlers, Lopez hid behind a chorus line of Rockettes, shed her oversized tux and reemerged in her iconic green dress — looking, as promised, better than ever.

Honestly, if she doesn’t wear that thing to her wedding with Alex Rodriguez, what’s the point?
