“If money was no object I still wouldn’t be able to have this, for me it is the most beautiful car ever! The Ferrari 250 GT Lusso in chestnut brown, once owned by Steve Macqueen! Most 250’s are beautiful but the Lusso—Italian for luxury—stands out even in that crowd. As the name suggests, it was designed by Pininfarina as a grand tourer, with an eye on stylish, high-speed motoring as opposed to racing. There is ample luggage space behind the two seats swathed in beige leather, and the engine is set forward to allow for more legroom. It is no longer for sale.”

The American Music Awards was held in Los Angeles, California last week and was hosted by Jennifer Lopez who came to SLAY!!! Here are some of our favorite looks from the night.
