Jennifer Lopez Just Brought Thong Pants Back From the Dead

It seems to be that this year officially marks the return of Jenny from the block, as Jennifer Lopez just wore exposed-thong pants out in public. While filming a music video in Miami yesterday with DJ Khaled, Lopez stepped out of her trailer wearing a pair of gray trousers with a matching exposed thong You may recall seeing this look on the likes of Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, or Paris Hilton in the early 2000s... There's also that iconic scene from Canadian teen drama Degrassi when Manny Santos donned an exposed thong with her lowrise jeans and a crop top (here's a refresh for you). While this is certainly one of the most polarizing looks from the 2000s, if anyone can bring it back from the dead, we suppose it's J.Lo.
