Jennifer Lopez has made news once again for her jaw-dropping red carpet appearance at the 2021 Met Gala, just days after shattering the internet with her nostalgia-filled return to the red carpet with none other than Ben Affleck at the 2021 Venice Film Festival.
For her 13th Met Gala at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, the 52-year-old actress donned a transparent brown Ralph Lauren gown with eye-catching embellishments, capitalizing on the rising popularity of the cowgirl style.
The dress was ultra-feminine yet the overall ensemble was excessively western-inspired and properly on-theme. It screamed sex-appeal with a thigh-high leg split and a deep V-neckline in a figure-hugging design.
Lopez accessorized the gown with fake fur sleeves, a charcoal grey cowboy hat, a brown leather choker and belt, silver DSW platform shoes, and a statement necklace. The actress also had her face painted by famous make-up artist Scott Barnes, who used products from JLo Beauty, her own beauty line.
While the artist walked the red carpet alone, it appears that Affleck joined his significant other inside the museum, where he was seen in a sleek black tuxedo and matching mask giving her a Covid-safe kiss.
At this year’s widely awaited event, entitled In America: An Anthology of Fashion—which serves as an homage to three centuries of identity, politics, and style in the United States—Joseph Lopez wasn’t the only celebrity to make a reference to the country.
Country singer Kacey Musgraves revealed that her metallic Ralph Lauren outfit was inspired by her equestrian origins, while German singer-songwriter Kim Petras dressed up as a horse in a Collina Strada gown replete with a 3D horse head bustier. That’s right, you read it accurately.
Hillary Taymour of Collina Strada, who wore a style that matched Petra’s, adds, “She really really wanted to make a statement, and I believe we are definitely making a statement.” “We might end up on the best-dressed list or the worst-dressed list, but hopefully it will be remembered as one of those moments.”
