It’s been 13 years since Jennifer Lopez made jaws drop when she stepped onto the red carpet at the 2000 Grammys in that low-cut Versace gown with the up-to-there slit – and yet it’s still unforgettable. But the piece of pop culture history is not on display in a museum somewhere. "I have that at home," she reveals in the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar. "The other day, my housekeeper put it on a mannequin in my spa, where I get my hair and makeup done. She sent me a picture. She was like, 'You like this dress?' Um, yeah, but I don't know if I like it out in the house!"

Although daring dresses like that one aren’t really J.Lo’s style anymore, she still holds on to some of her past tastes, which she combines with her more mature fashion sense to create a current style all her own. The 43-year-old explains that her former “boyish, hip-hoppy sensibility: big hoops, sneakers, tank tops, and my big curly hair” was given a “sexy element to it” over time, and now, “all of these things mixed together … that’s my style.”

Her look may have matured, but Lopez has maintained her youthful playfulness. The actress-singer describes herself as having a mental age of “16 to 18. That's when I became the person that I am. Even though I didn't realize the whole journey I would go on, I still feel all that youthfulness."

And that comes in handy with her boyfriend of a year, Casper Smart, who is 18 years younger than the star. “He's fantastic; he's like my best friend,” Lopez gushes of her 25-year-old boyfriend, who is playing with her 4-year-old twins, Max and Emme, during the interview. “I can tell him everything, when I'm feeling down, when I'm feeling good. He gives moral support, endless love, and support."

But he’s not the only one. As Lopez has been traveling the globe on her world tour, she has been joined by her mother Guadalupe, a former teacher who has been tutoring her children on the road. And she certainly can use all the help she can get. Max and Emme “are open, happy, curious, smart, loving, affectionate,” she proudly tells the magazine. “They're" – and then she stops short as her daughter tumbles over the couch – "rambunctious."
