La’Porsha Renae, one of American Idol’s remaining contestants on its final season, sang so beautifully on Thursday night’s show that she made Jennifer Lopez sob. Yet despite the tears and the blue smoky eye that kind of resembled a bruise, Judge Jenny looked magnificent. Wearing a striped jumpsuit, she delivered inspirational wisdom with a side of fabulousness. The one-piece, from Naeem Khan’s spring 2016 collection, featured long sleeves and flares in ROYGBV sequins. She accessorized with large gold hoops, two bangles, and some rings, while her makeup was on the heavier side, featuring a nude lip and slicked-back lob.

The print — multicolored stripes in various thicknesses composed of sequins — is not easy one to pull off. Yet despite its busyness, multiple women have dared to give it a try.

Tracee Ellis Ross wore the pattern most recently. Talking about her sitcom Blackish at the Paley Center for Media in Hollywood on March 13, the actress went for a different silhouette. While Lopez was obviously going for the sexy vibe, Ross seemed to be evoking something funkier, such as a high-fashion ice skater who loves to have fun.

But Ellie Kemper did it first. The trendsetter got her hands on the design just days after it made its runway debut.

For the event, which was more formal than sitting on a panel of judges on primetime television or talking on a panel about a primetime television show, Kemper opted for untraditional stripes, all arranged to give the appearance of an optical illusion.

Instead of asking who wore it best, let’s just call it like it is: All these women are fashion marvels. It’s a three-way tie!
