Quick to relish a new style buzz word, fashion hawks have dubbed Jennifer Lopez’s Versace dress-trouser hybrid a ‘tress’. Catchy, or just plain confusing?

The 44-year-old pop sensation showed support for long term friend and collaborator Donatella Versace at the Atelier Haute Couture Paris fashion show in a striking all-white look from the collection about to hit the catwalk.

From the rear, the strapless creation appeared to be a pearly gown picked to offset J-Lo’s honeydew skin tone and infamous derrière. When Jenny from the block turned to the side, however, a thigh-high slit showed off one beaded trouser leg. That’s right, just one leg.

Confused as to how a solo legged pair of trews might sit on one’s torso, we put on our detective hat and zoomed in on many a photo of Lopez’s crotch area. The Let’s Get Loud songstress, it would seem, is actually wearing a tailored concoction of half hot pant and half full trouser leg. A savvy decision from Donatella, of course, to avoid flashing one’s vajazzle in one’s Versace.
