Jennifer Lopez Channels a 'Xmas Barbie' in Stunning Red Dress at 2020 E! People's Choice Awards

Jennifer Lopez's return to the awards show stage was nothing but exceptional.

After the coronavirus pandemic put a halt on major concerts and events for the last few months, Lopez, 51, made her grand return to the glam world of award shows at the 2020 E! People's Choice Awards on Sunday.

On the social-distanced red carpet (stars were required to get a COVID-19 tested beforehand and stood six-feet apart), Lopez wore a stunning red dress by Christian Siriano.

"Xmas Barbie ❤️ Tonight's snatch on jlo for the #pca awards," her hairstylist Chris Appleton shared on Instagram.

Before the show, Lopez paid a visit to her colorist of 15 years to touch-up her highlighted honey-brown hue.

"I like to keep her hair as close to her natural color as possible and she has remained consistently gorgeous throughout every stage of her career with a perfectly highlighted honey brown," Redken celebrity colorist Tracey Cunningham tells PEOPLE. "Sometimes I add in some more blonde highlights, which blend in so well with the honey and light brown, but I really love her both ways. For me, fabulous color and a Redken Shades EQ Gloss service is a must before hitting the red carpet!”
