Jennifer Lopez at Wet Republic/Christopher Rauschnot @24kMedia on Twitter
What are music superstars supposed to do after headlining a sold-out tour stop at Mandalay Bay Events Center on a Saturday night? (And in this case before the concert.) Party like a rock star in the Entertainment Capital of the World, of course, and that’s precisely what Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias did.
On Saturday afternoon, J.Lo spent the afternoon lounging poolside at MGM Grand’s Wet Republic. She arrived at 3 p.m. wearing a two-piece, midriff-bearing white ensemble by Bec & Bridge complemented by sky-high snake wedges, sunglasses and a white Hermes Birkin bag.
Despite rumors that she is taking a break from 25-year-old dancer boyfriend Casper Smart, he arrived with Lopez and was by her side throughout the afternoon. Also present: family, friends including actress Leah Remini and members of her tour.
Also at Wet Republic: Prince Harry with a group of friends; he arrived just after 1 p.m. and didn’t depart until right before closing time. The playboy prince, sporting swim trunks, enjoying the afternoon swimming, drinking and flirting with bikini-clad partygoers.
J.LO AT PURE POST-CONCERT
J.Lo celebrated her concert after-party at Pure in Caesars Palace. Arriving about 1 a.m. with Smart, she dazzled in a form-fitting blue strapless dress and was cheered by hundreds of fans at the nightclub.
After the red carpet, she made her way to the VIP area of the dance floor and stopped to greet fans along the way. “Extra” host Maria Menounos, Remini, family, friends and tour members joined her, and the group toasted with champagne to her success. Lopez and Smart dance atop their booth and shared kisses throughout the evening.
Later in the pre-dawn hours, J.Lo emerged to the front of the stage while her latest single “Goin’ In” played in the background. Party revelers went wild as she greeted fans, signed autographs and danced to her new song.
ENRIQUE IGLESIAS AT HYDE
Meantime, Latin heartthrob Enrique Iglesias, J.Lo’s co-headliner, partied post-concert at Hyde in the Bellagio. Arriving with a large entourage, he settled into an outdoor table on Hyde’s terrace overlooking the Bellagio Fountains. Keeping it casual in a gray hoodie and jeans, Iglesias stepped away from the group multiple times throughout the night to pose for photographs with fans.
The group partied into the early morning hours while DJ Mick Boogie spun for the weekly late-night party Sunrise Sessions.
MORE J.LO IN LAS VEGAS
J.Lo was seen Monday afternoon treating her family to frozen drinks at the Pods by Wolfgang Puck in Crystals at MGM’s CityCenter. She later set off on a shopping spree, hitting nearby Hermes, Roberto Cavalli, Tom Ford, Lanvin, Jimmy Choo and Bottega Veneta and stayed for dinner at Social House.
