J.Lo is having a good week. Just seven days after tying the knot with Ben Affleck, she is today celebrating her birthday. And what better reason to take a nostalgic look back at her sartorial highlights? Any excuse…
When you think of 90s style icons, you likely head straight to the likes of Naomi Campbell, Winona Ryder, Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Love, Drew Barrymore etc., but while we have all been in love with J.Lo (or is it J.Aff now?) for as long as we can remember her undeniable status as a major fashion figure often gets overlooked.
Perhaps it’s because we’re busy focussing on her endless other talents – we’d be happy with just one of her triple-threat traits from that voice to her acting and dance skills – but J.Lo’s recent return to the limelight thanks to a rematch with A-list ex-boyfriend Ben Affleck has sent the majority of millennials down a rabbit hole of 90s nostalgia.
And the one thing that stands out from our J.Lo reminiscence – other than the fact that, at the age of 53 (today!), she still looks exactly like she did in her twenties – is her wardrobe.
The red carpet queen owned the 2021 Met Gala, showing up in a jaw-dropping metallic Ralph Lauren gown with a feathered trim and a thigh high slit paired perfectly with a cowgirl hat to fit the all-American theme of the night – an assignment, not many of the other guests understood.
JLo looked happier than ever as she posed with Affleck once again, after the two made their red carpet debut (since reuniting) at Venice Film Festival 2021.
