See Shades Of Blue Star Jennifer Lopez Wear 30 Shades Of Blue

On January 7, Jennifer Lopez's new show debuted on NBC. The series is called Shades of Blue. Shades of Blue, however, is not about the color blue. It is about a dirty NYPD cop (Lopez), who gets roped into ratting on her unit by the FBI. But what if it were about the cool hue? What if it were just about J.Lo wearing blue? That's what we've chosen to imagine.

So, the following slideshow consists of photos of Lopez donning blue garments over the years. Lopez has worn various, yes, shades of the color in her career as dramatic actress, romantic comedy heroine, pop star, provocateur, and, as always, Jenny From the Block.

Shades of Blue airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. EST.

Nothing like a big blue stole to kick things off. She wore this to the premiere of Selena, still one of the highlights of her career.

J.Lo rocked baby-blue at the Men in Black premiere. Noa wore a matching tux. So very '90s.

Clearly, Lopez enjoyed topping off a (relatively) subtle ensemble with a statement blue-gray accessory in this era. However, this garment that Lopez wore to Grammys in 1998 makes no sense. Why does it look like a chia pet?

She wore at least three shades of blue at the premiere for The Man in the Iron Mask. Is that crushed velvet?

Now, what would you call this number? Is it a tube top and arm warmers? Who knows? But it's a nice periwinkle.

She's wearing that infamous green dress underneath, but she put on a blue bathrobe for her SNL monologue about how she isn't a diva.

The curls go well with the lacy navy. Lots of swirling patterns going on here.

With second husband Cris Judd on her arm, Lopez sported a shiny, silvery dress. She always did love a plunging neckline.

Okay, fine. This gown borders on seafoam-green, but I'm going to say it's more along the lines of Tiffany blue.

Lopez wore this to the Met Gala, where the theme was "Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy." This is her idea of a superhero?
