Watch Jennifer Lopez Strike A Pose As Selena In '90s Photo Shoot

Yes, sparkly bustiers galore!

In the early '90s Jennifer Lopez was a fly girl -- literally, as a dancer for "In Living Color"-- but by the end of the decade the Nuyorican triple-threat was a full blown star thanks to her movie portrayal of slain Tejano star Selena Quintanilla.

The 1997 biopic catapulted Lopez to stardom and those who still remember her work in the film fondly are in for a treat. A J.Lo fan page on Instagram resurfaced a video of the singer posing for a photo shoot in several different Selena costumes earlier this week. 

In the clip, J.Lo smiles for the camera as she twirls in different colored bustiers and outfits that mirror the Tejano icon's own sense of style.

In honor of the 20th anniversary of Quintanilla's death, Lopez gave a moving tribute to the slain artist last May during the Billboard Latin Music Awards. 

After the ceremony, the Puerto Rican star opened up to the "Today" show about how much Selena inspired her as an artist and how portraying her in the film changed her life. 

"The impact that it had on my life, on my career ..." Lopez said, breaking off with a sigh. "It was a great thing for her to be my mentor. And it was a great thing to have her teach me so much about how to navigate this business, but also how to navigate through life."
