After paying tribute to salsa queen Celia Cruz and tearing it up "On the Floor" at the AMAs Sunday night, Jennifer Lopez continued to party well into the night.
Lopez attended an after party at Chateau Marmont hosted by the owners of DSquared.
The American Idol judge, whose Kohls campaign (#getjenniferthere) and knockout performance made her the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter, wore a black DSquared dress designed by the fashion house's twin brothers, Dean and Dan.
While DJ Big Syphe spun tunes, Lopez, 44, spent the night dancing with boyfriend Beau "Casper" Smart and stunning BFF Leah Remini, with whom she shared a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs.

It was another exciting night in the ballroom on Monday's Dancing with the Stars.
There was laughter, tears and even an unexpected smooch during the show's semi-finals, which featured former cast member Maksim Chmerkovskiy as a guest judge.
As usual, Bill Engvall and partner Emma Slater ended up with the lowest overall score for their two routines – a cha cha and an Argentine tango both set to LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It." Their goofy cha cha that got them 28 points out of 40 was poorly received by judges, but they left them impressed with a serious 32-point Argentine tango that Chmerkovskiy raved was "exactly what an Argentine tango is supposed to be like."
Was the fan favorite able to make it through another week and land a spot in next week's finals?

First, the pairs had to perform in an improvisational switch-up challenge, which required them to show off their ability to transition seamlessly while dancing to music that suddenly changed.

She came to inspire and enjoy the party.
And into week four of Dancing with the Stars Valerie Harper did just that and much more, sending a message of hope by savoring life after she was diagnosed with brain cancer earlier this year.
But on Monday night, sentiment finally yielded to the cold criteria of judging. After another low-scoring performance – this time an 18-point waltz – the 74-year-old star of TV's Rhoda was voted off the show.
