Jennifer Lopez has just added another string to her CV-bow, making history as she fronts Guess' Spring 2018 campaign.

The 48-year-old singer (and dancer, actress, entrepreneur and fashion icon) has just become the oldest ever Guess Girl. 

Fans of the star may have got an inkling of the new venture when J.Lo sported a Guess logo T-shirt in her recent music video for 'Amor, Amor, Amor'.

The mum-of-two said she was "thrilled and excited" to get the call from fashion designer and Guess co-founder Paul Marciano. 

"When I look back at early GUESS campaigns through the years, you see all of these beautiful models and iconic images that Paul has created. It is a tremendous compliment to have been selected for GUESS’ Spring 2018 campaign," she said.

Directed by Marciano, the campaign was shot by fashion photographer Tatiana Gerusova who drew inspiration from Lopez’s life as a performer in Vegas and actress in Hollywood.

"Jennifer’s impact and influence continues to grow and this campaign celebrates the notion that women get more beautiful and talented as they gain life experience," said Marciano.

"Her beauty and class shine through this campaign and I am so excited Jennifer accepted to be our new GUESS Girl and at the same time ‘Femme Fatale’ of Marciano."

Claudia Schiffer, who modeled for the company’s 30th anniversary ads back in 2012, was the second oldest face of the brand at the age of 41.
