The resemblance led many on Twitter to believe Lopez was on the losing end of a battle with her jeans.
"I stared at this image for about five minutes try to figure out why Jennifer Lopez had her pants around her ankles in public before realizing they were boots," one Twitter user shared. "Don't think I'm in the wrong here."
"That awkward moment when you thought that @JLo's pants are falling," another posted.
Another called the look a "sin." "@JLo @Versace boots look like she forgot to pull up her pants after going to the restroom," the user shared.
One member of the Twitterverse joked "now I know what J Lo stands for!", adding "#JLo #JeansLow #LowRiseJeans."
On the other hand, some people were here for the innovative look.
"Only @JLo can have her pants fall down and magically turn into denim @Versace boots! #stylingandprofiling," a fan wrote.
"Only @JLo could wear those boots and get away with it!" wrote another admirer.
And in an effort perhaps to silence the haters once and for all, one person declared: "To everyone upset about these boots: She's a fashion leader, not a fashion follower."
