Jennifer Lopez appeared to embrace the past on Thursday when she prepared to leave Rome in a very retro skirt-suit.
The 44-year-old singer and actress wore the rather matronly ensemble as she paid a visit to a local gas-station, ostensibly to use the toilet.
Jennifer has been enjoying a romantic break in Rome with boyfriend Casper Smart, and they were making their way to nearby Ciampino Airport when nature came knocking.
Despite its generous cut the two piece clung to her famously voluptuous curves in all the right places as she trotted to the toilet on a pair of black stiletto heels.
The jacket and skirt ensemble was enhanced courtesy of a stylish belt detail and distinctive weave pattern comprised of intricate red and black shapes.
Despite the generally overcast conditions Jennifer teamed her outfit with a pair of large black Ray Bans, but they were missing as she made her way out of the loo and back to her waiting car.
Indeed, a light rain was falling across Rome during her public pit-stop – but an assistant ensured the songstress stayed dry by gallantly holding an umbrella over her immaculately styled locks.
The Latina star had clearly been in a carefree mood while applying foundation and lipstick that morning, and the liberal application have her face a significantly lighter hue that made the blood red slash of red across her lips all the more striking.
Jennifer and Casper eventually flew out of Rome via private jet after a romantic stop-over in the Italian capital.
Earlier that day the singer blended into the crowd as she strolled with her 'Beau' down chic Via Condotti.
But Jennifer - who is worth $250m - only window shopped as she passed Gucci, Valentino and Dior.
The couple have recently been plagued by rumours that their relationship has been on the rocks.
Star magazine reported they split in October after a heated argument.
Other publications, including USWeekly, were quick to follow up with reports that the heat had cooled between the singer and the back-up dancer.
But what a better place to rekindle that spark than Rome, where the pace is slower and there's beauty at every turn.
It didn't hurt that the former Fly Girl appears to have left her twins Emme and Max, aged five, at home - meaning she wasn't distracted by mommy duties.
On Wednesday the couple were seen getting back that loving feeling as they dressed up in black to dine at a romantic restaurant.
Seen smiling and laughing with staffers, Jennifer appeared stress-free. She also looked stunning with her hair pulled back, showing off diamond earrings.
This year Jennifer has been touring with Casper and soon she will start shooting American Idol, a show which she has already taped rehearsals for.
On November 24 she will perform a tribute for the late Celia Cruz at the 2013 American Music Awards.
