Last night she took to the stage for another stunning turn as part of her tour with Enrique
Iglesias.

But earlier in the day, Jennifer Lopez was spotted enjoying some downtime with her 24-year-old boyfriend Casper Smart as they ventured out of lunch – rounding off their outing with a tasty chocolate ice cream cone.

The 42-year-old singer looked lovely in a pair of white hot pants teamed with a form-fitting black top.

The former American Idol judge piled her hair on top of her head in a bun, and completed her look with large shades and sandals.

J-Lo and Casper spent the afternoon in Hoboken, New Jersey, where the star performed later that day.

'Goosies
everywhere!' Lopez said last night, hugging herself on the
first U.S. stop of her North American tour with Spanish hitmaker Iglesias.

Hands off: The couple opted to share the sweet treat rather than have one each

The pop star, who dazzled
the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, also used to say 'Goosies' when
she served two seasons as judge on American Idol.

And though the mother of twin
toddlers won't be returning to the Fox talent competition series, she
has assured her fans via her official website that 'at the end of the
day this is what I do. This is where I belong. Right here with all of
you.'

Lopez reportedly earned $15million
on Idol, but due to her desire for more music and film projects – as well
as Steven Tyler's recent exit – she decided to call it quits.

And while her tour-mate opted for a t-shirt, jeans, and baseball hat, JLo played up her diva persona
with four stunning costumes custom-made by one of her 'favourite'
designers Zuhair Murad.

Last night, Jennifer revealed a
rarely-seen cascading chiffon cover-up, which perfectly matched her
cobalt blue fringed dress, with over 500 crystals, inspired by the carnivals
of Brazil.

'Much
of my inspiration came from Paris during the Mistinguett Years, when
costumes were as much of a part of the show as the dancers and the
movement,' Murad said in a statement published in InStyle Magazine.

All of Jennifer's costumes hug and
highlight her famous curves and the pop star's crystal-studded nude
bodysuit with fringe has a fabulous white feather train and matching fur
hat that's reminiscent of Buckingham Palace's guards.

Aside from a blinged-out hoodie cover-up,
Jennifer's third ensemble is a sexy black leotard featuring inky beading
and crystal-studded tights, and her fourth was a feminine version of a Spanish matador outfit.

The Maid in Manhattan star's singing
voice, which some critics have described as 'shrill,' was not always the
show's centerpiece thanks to the glitzy costumes, energetic back-up
dancers, pyrotechnics and fog machines.

On stage, she performed fan favourites
Get Right, On the Floor, Jenny From the Block, and a stripped acoustic
version of If You Had My Love, which was her first hit record in 1999.

Lopez's greatest hits album, Dance Again, drops July 24 and has 13 tracks, while
the deluxe edition includes three bonus singles and DVD.

Meanwhile, Jennifer and Casper were also spotted out boarding a boat in New York City earlier today.

Jennifer wore a patterned scarf over
her hair, a sheer black T-shirt and white jeans and held hands with her
boyfriend as they made their way onto the jetty.
