Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck looked like a picture-perfect couple at the Met Gala on Monday. The couple didn’t hold back when it came to expressing their love for one another.
While Ben Affleck let Jennifer Lopez have her moment on the Met Gala red carpet alone, he shortly joined her inside the event, where the two shared kisses with their masks on.
They were also dressed by the same designer.
Both stars stayed true to the event’s theme, In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, with Ben Affleck opting for a simple tuxedo and Jennifer Lopez bringing her signature glam to the 2021 Met Gala red carpet in a custom, dark brown Ralph Lauren gown with a plunging neckline and thigh-high slit. According to the brand, the dress took a team of fifteen artisans twelve days to create and featured a Couture bustier, crystal embroidery, and braided leather trim.
Lopez completed the ensemble with a unique hand-made faux fur cape that took over 200 hours to make and featured a mix of leather, suede, and shearling fringe as well as a sprinkling of crystal embroidery.
Her stylists (Mariel Haenn and Rob Zangardi) added a mix of vintage accessories, including a Navajo-stamped silver ring and vintage Ralph Lauren silver jewellery.
Despite the fact that this is their first red carpet appearance as a couple since revealing their romance in July — when Jennifer Lopez shared a series of steamy swimsuit images to mark her 52nd birthday, ending in a photo of the two kissing — this isn’t their first red carpet appearance as a couple.
The On The Floor singer and Gone Girl star looked every inch the happy couple as they made their official romantic debut on the red carpet of Affleck’s latest film The Last Duel at The Venice Film Festival last Friday (September 10th).
An exuberant exhibition of love was on display when the couple arrived by boat at the festival the day before.
When it came to the outfits, Ben Affleck, 49, chose Dolce & Gabbana, while, Jennifer Lopez, 52, chose Georges Hobeika, which featured jewel-encrusted plunging neckline and Cartier jewellery.
There is a good chance that Lopez and Affleck will be spending more time apart in the fall. Work is to blame: In early August, a source told People, “They are spending as much time together as possible before they have separate work projects in the fall. Ben will be filming in Texas and Jennifer in Canada.”
