The spring/summer 2023 shows delivered trends including underwear-as-outerwear and 17th century panniers, asymmetrical cuts and a cacophony of textures. The standout shade? Bright red. And Jennifer Lopez, for one, was paying attention.
For a lunch outing with friends in Los Angeles this week, the Marry Me star was seen embracing the season’s most popular color. She wore a floor-length halter-neck dress in a vibrant tomato-red shade, crystal-embellished Gucci wedge platforms (her signature shoe) and brown aviator sunglasses. To complement her look, JLo accessorized with a crimson Hermès Birkin bag, a scarlet Hermès Collier de Chien cuff bracelet, and a pair of silver hoop earrings by Jennifer Fisher.

The standout color for spring/summer 2023, red made its presence felt across the Big Four fashion weeks. In New York, designers like Wiederhoeft, LaQuan Smith and Michael Kors showcased eye-catching red looks. London designers Feben, Karoline Vitto and Dilara Fındıkoğlu all interpreted the hue for their collections, while Milan’s runways featured red designs from Prada, Ferragamo and Moschino. In Paris, red was high on the agenda at Loewe, Valentino and Stella McCartney.
In the months since, A-listers have duly been championing the fiery shade on the red carpet. From Jennifer Lawrence’s custom Dior gown and Catherine Zeta-Jones’s Elie Saab number at Cannes, to Salma Hayek’s red hot Gucci ball gown for the Met Gala, the color is trending in Hollywood. But Jennifer Lopez’s casual day look proves the look-at-me shade is not just for awards season.

Jennifer Lopez Celebrated Her Wedding Anniversary with Ben Affleck in an Aisle-Ready White Mini Dress
This week marks one year since Jennifer Lopez revealed to the world that she had tied the knot with Ben Affleck after rekindling their old relationship. On Sunday, the star couple celebrated their first wedding anniversary by stepping out for dinner at Giorgio Baldi and were photographed holding hands by the paparazzi.
Given that the special evening called for an equally remarkable outfit, Lopez looked aisle-ready as she embraced bridal style, albeit a relaxed version of it. The 53-year-old wore a romantic sleeveless mini dress in white by Valentino, which featured a sheer bodice with silver rhinestone embellishments all over. Her beloved platform heels in silver, matching crystal earrings, and a green micro bag completed the look. The mother-of-two also sported her hair in loose waves, while silver eyeshadow and voluminous lashes became her date night glam of choice. For his part, Affleck went with an all-black ensemble consisting of a crewneck sweater, trousers, and Chelsea boots.
This time last year, the couple’s nuptials had been a highly-talked-about affair as they first made things official in Las Vegas on July 16, 2022, with a private ceremony, and later had a bigger wedding in Georgia. “We did it,” Lopez announced via On The JLo at the time. “Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient… Last night, we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world.”
In her latest newsletter release, Lopez revisited the memory by sharing the lyrics and snippet of the song “Midnight in Vegas” from her upcoming album This is Me… Now. Read the lyrics from the track below:
I always dreamed that I’d find somebody like you
We’re drowningIn orchid arrangementsDresses and pastriesWhat if it’s raining, yeah?Is this what we’ve been dreaming of?It’s crowded with families and agentsRoom reservationsWhich destinationPaps helicoptersEvent of the agesCaught in the matrixThen you whispered in my earSaid let’s get out of hereWe can disappear tonight
What about aMidnight trip to VegasJust me and you babyThrow the kids in the backOf the pink CadillacAnd us in thе bathroom changingMidnight trip to VegasBoth our hearts are racin’I’ll pick you up latеWe don’t have to waitYeah let’s do something crazy

Jennifer Lopez is currently on a streak of remarkable out-of-duty summer outfits.
Spotted out and about in Los Angeles, the star has taken to a casual wardrobe of well-thought-out ensembles—from a 70s-inspired white crop top and flared corduroy bottoms, to a denim shirtdress with high slits and knee-high boots.
For a recent outing, the actor embraced modest summer dressing in a maxi dress by La DoubleJ. The colorful number featured a kaftan-like silhouette with a collar and flared sleeves and came with a bold geometric pattern in hues of red, white, blue, and yellow. While the breezy outfit combated the heat, Lopez kept the hair off her face in a high messy bun. Chunky gold jewelry, a red Hermès shoulder bag, and her beloved tinted Aviators completed the look, which the 53-year-old made her own with her signature towering platforms. This time, the Hustlers star picked a pair of white Gucci peep-toe sandals with crisscrossing straps in the front and silver embellishments of the GG logo adorning its platform.
Those looking for a new summer look may do well to take a page out of Lopez’s style book and invest in a pair of tall heels or dust off the ones in their wardrobe. A quick look back on the singer’s previous outfits offers a plethora of inspiration for styling the dangerously high pieces from Aquazzura, Valentino, and more. Channel Lopez on her Parisian honeymoon in pink suede heels with jeans for a casual look, or for a more glamorous one, one can’t go wrong with the bejeweled JLo x DSW platforms she wore to the 2023 Grammy Awards.

Jennifer Lopez arrived at the Los Angeles premiere of “Air” on Monday wearing a bedazzled neon green ensemble.
In honor of the film’s premiere, the actress wore a dress with a sheer beaded bodice, long sleeves and a high neckline with a neon green floor-length skirt from Antonio Grimaldi. She accessorized the dress with a crystal-encrusted clutch bag and earrings and rings from Shipra jewelry.

To create her look for the film’s premiere, Lopez worked with her go-to celebrity stylists, Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn. The stylist duo also works with Heidi Klum, Ciara and Kerry Washington.
Lopez was accompanied by her husband, Ben Affleck, to the film’s premiere. For the occasion, he wore a navy corduroy suit from Thom Sweeney with a light blue shirt, navy blue tie and brown lace-up shoes.
Affleck worked with stylist Ilaria Urbinati to create his look for the premiere. Urbinati also works with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Casey Affleck and Donald Glover.

It has been a busy month for Lopez as she recently launched her collaboration with Revolve for her JLO Jennifer Lopez footwear line. The exclusive collection released its first 16-piece drop earlier this month, featuring sculptural heels in chic metallics, crystal embellishments and animal prints.
Lopez launched JLO Jennifer Lopez in partnership with Camuto Group in 2020. Prior to the partnership with Revolve, JLO Jennifer Lopez was sold exclusively at Designer Shoe Warehouse.
Directed by Ben Affleck, “Air” tells the story of Nike’s journey to sign Michael Jordan, played by Damian Young and launch Air Jordan sneakers in the 1980s. The drama stars include Affleck, Matt Damon, Jason Bateman and Viola Davis — who Jordan himself specifically requested to portray his mother, Deloris Jordan. The movie held its world premiere at South by Southwest in March, and will launch in theaters on April 5.
Pink is not an oft-worn color in Jennifer Lopez‘s off-duty wardrobe, seeing as the singer saves it for special occasions, such as her latest date night with husband Ben Affleck. After revealing their matching commitment tattoos, the two were spotted heading to dinner to celebrate their first Valentine’s Day as a married couple, for which Lopez opted for a feminine, blush pink look.
Head-to-toe in Dolce & Gabbana, the 53-year-old star’s ensemble for the evening featured a two-tone frock with sheer balloon sleeves and a ruffled hem. The piece could have passed as a breezy daytime outfit had it not been for Lopez’s pick of metallic accessories: A white belt with a gold buckle to match her towering platform heels. The one romantic detail to seal it all? A gold box clutch emblazoned with a red and white heart. Lopez’s glam complemented her outfit with glowy, flushed cheeks, a glossy nude lip, and a slicked-back ponytail.
Stepping out of the car and entering Santa Monica’s Giorgio Baldi restaurant, Lopez was photographed holding hands with Affleck, who looked sharp in a navy blue suit and coat. The outing comes a week after the couple made their Grammys debut and follows their Super Bowl commercial for Dunkin’ which took the internet by storm.
Lopez and Affleck tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at the Little White Chapel in Las Vegas on July 16, after revealing their engagement in April.

Jennifer Lopez is the undisputed queen of love, no questions asked.
The multi-talented performer has always championed the happily ever after theme by never giving up on love, starring in plenty of rom-coms, and generally spreading the warm-hearted message that true love is for everyone. Saying all this, we couldn’t have been more thrilled for her when she reunited with her former sweetheart Ben Affleck before the pair went on to tie in the knot in Las Vegas in 2022. Ever the romantic, the 53-year-old wore three breathtaking Ralph Lauren dresses during the evening and looked absolutely exquisite while doing so.
But what did we genuinely expect from Jennifer? Because if we know anything about her filmography, she’s a sucker for choosing projects centered on love, relationships and… weddings. While she’s finally found happiness with Gone Girl star Ben after walking down the aisle four times previously, being a bride has very obviously been a recurring theme in her impressive filmography.
So in honor of Valentine’s Day and her latest nuptials-related movie Shotgun Wedding becoming a runaway bridal (no pun intended) hit on Prime Video, we bring you all eight of Jennifer’s wedding films, ranked in order of how enjoyable they are to watch on the sofa with your friends. Enjoy (and hopefully, you may get some inspo from her dresses if you’re preparing for your big day soon!)
The Wedding Planner (2001)
One of Jennifer’s most iconic bridal movies was The Wedding Planner, in which her character, unfortunately, after her father’s pleas, married the wrong guy in this gorgeous off-the-shoulder. While she discovers that she’s actually in love with dreamy doctor Steve (Matthew McConaughey), we can’t help but be dazzled by her gorgeous wedding look, which was completed with a stunning pearl necklace, matching earrings and pearl-encrusted veil.
Maid in Manhattan (2002)
In Maid in Manhattan, Jennifer’s character Marisa, a hotel maid, was ahead of her time as she swapped out the traditional white wedding gown for a strapless floor-length, light pink chiffon gown. In the film, she embarks on a whirlwind romance with a healthy hotel guest Christopher Marshall (Ralph Fiennes), after he confuses her with a glamorous guest. Costume designer Albert Wolsky previously described the movie’s vibe as a “Cinderella story”, so while the dress technically wasn’t a wedding gown, it was still very fitting.
Marry Me (2022)
In Marry Me, Jennifer Lopez plays international popstar Kat Valdez who plans on getting married to her fellow popstar boyfriend in front of their fans, only to discover he’s cheated on her just seconds before she goes on stage. Heartbreak in that very moment aside, she looks terrific in her showstopping silver metallic Zuhair Murad wedding dress. According to Variety, the gown weighed 95 pounds and had “nine layers constructed of silk taffeta, horsehair and tulle” and “sparkling crystals, silver, ruffles, embroidery and lace.”
Shotgun Wedding (2023)
Jennifer’s latest wedding film sees her as one-half of a couple who have been held hostage by pirates alongside their wedding guests just seconds before they’re set to walk down the aisle. Throughout the movie, she wears a poofy, chiffon wedding dress that unfortunately suffers some severe damage as the husband-and-wife-to-be work to save themselves. We’ll let the destruction on the dress slide on this one…
In Enough, Jennifer takes on the role of Slim, an abused wife constantly on the run from her nightmare of a husband to search for a better life for herself and her young daughter. While the movie’s theme isn’t Jen’s typical rom-com, there is a wedding scene in which she looks beautiful in a strappy tulle dress while reminiscing on her happy days with her boyfriend, Mitch.
Jersey Girl (2004)
Yes, that’s Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, back in 2004, getting married in the movie Jersey Girl! However, director Kevin Smith cut the scene out of the film because of the pair’s high-profile relationship in real life, which saw them go as far as getting engaged. Speaking to US Weekly about the scene, Kevin explained: “I didn’t know (if it was right) to leave it in. People might forget they’re watching a picture, like, ‘Wait, didn’t these two not get married?”
El Cantante (2006)
Marc Anthony was another man Jennifer married in real life and on-screen in the movie El Cantante. In the film, the actress played icon Nilda ‘Puchi’ Lavoe, the wife of salsa legend Héctor Lavoe (played by Marc). We love these gorgeous era-defining wedding look Jen had for the film. The long, teased hair and dramatic veil are everything!
No mother of the groom could stop Jennifer’s character from looking stunning on her big day, even if the role was played by the fabulous-in-real-life Jane Fonda. The white wedding gloves were the icing on the cake of her big moment, and a big smug clap back to her most prominent critic Viola as she married her son.

Jennifer Lopez Affleck has worn it all—from sheer dresses to opaque dresses, little black dresses to long green dresses. Leave it to J.Lo, then, to find a classic see-through gown with an actually surprising twist.
At the Hollywood premiere of her umpteenth movie about matrimony, Shotgun Wedding, on Wednesday, January 18, Lopez walked the red carpet in stunning Valentino couture gown. The classic “naked dress,” which features an embellished sheer overlay atop a nude bodysuit, had a unique twist: Under the sheer layer, Lopez wore a lemon yellow sash tied across her hips.
Styled by Mariel Haenn and Rob Zangardi, Lopez tied the look together with a matching Tyler Ellis clutch in Peeps yellow (if that color isn’t already trademarked, it should be) and stunning diamond jewelry, including dangly earrings, a matching cuff, and a diamond and pearl statement ring.
The 53-year-old posed with her co-star, Josh Duhamel, on the carpet, where J.Lo looked totally natural and comfortable participating in a silly little pose.
And what would a premiere be without an after-party? Jennifer Lopez was joined post-premiere by hubby and official Dunkin’ spokesperson Ben Affleck, as well as Duhamel’s wife, Audra Mari. Naturally, the JLo Beauty founder changed for the occasion, swapping her floor-skimming couture for a ruffled white minidress, also by Valentino, which she styled with fishnet stockings and platform Mary Janes—Valentino’s signature shoe.
J.Lo, being J.Lo, will probably wear several more outstanding outfits before this press cycle is over, and for that we can all be grateful.

Jennifer Lopez has rosettes on her mind.
The actress began promoting Amazon Video’s romantic comedy “Shotgun Wedding” with her costar Josh Duhamel on Wednesday wearing a range of pastel pink hues from top to bottom. Styled by fashion stylist Rob Zangardi, Lopez slipped into a Magda Butrym ruched midi-length dress trimmed with a spiral of detachable rosettes at the neck.
Zangardi shared snippets of her fitting on Instagram, opting to pair the monotoned dress with a leather bubblegum-pink trenchcoat and lace nude sandals.
The Mock Neck midi dress in pink ($1,695) featured ruched detailing at the neckline, along its formfitting under-arm hem and throughout its center back zipper-up silhouette. The dress’s shape was complemented by a sleeveless component and a high-neck seam.
Lopez’s final press look was tied in with a chignon updo and two face-framing strands grazing the rosettes on her dress. Even her nails were painted in pink polish reflective of the day’s colorway.
She accessorized with gold earrings and rings to match her pastel-pink Coach shoulder bag’s golden brass buckle. Lopez was named Coach’s global ambassador in 2019, under the creative direction of Stuart Vevers, and had recently appeared in the brand’s holiday campaign along with Zoey Deutch and more.
As the film gears up to stream worldwide on Amazon Prime on Jan. 27, viewers got a glimpse of what’s to come of it with a trailer release on Wednesday, showcasing Golden Globe recipient Jennifer Coolidge singing. Coolidge will portray the mother of the groom in the film.
Plotted as a destination wedding, Lopez otherwise known as “Darcy,” and Duhamel, characterized as “Tom,” will lead the film as the bride and groom who are taken hostage along with all their wedding attendees. The bridal and comedic theme of the film is not a first for Lopez, who starred in “Monster-in-Law” in 2005 with Jane Fonda and Michael Vartan.
It’s safe to say that 2022 was Jennifer Lopez‘s year. But by the looks of it, 2023 is going to be just as big for the multi-hyphenate, who will be dropping a new album, This is Me… Now, in the coming months. And a quick scroll through J.Lo’s style files will also tell you that her wardrobe has never been sharper than it is right now, replete with statement-making accessories, feminine classics, and elegant hues.
Keeping with her current sartorial streak, Lopez made yet another on-point appearance recently, and the pictures have already earned hundreds of likes and comments on social media. For a relaxing day outdoors, the 53-year-old stunner opted for a look that’s quite surprising for the ongoing winter: a head-to-toe floral outfit by Carolina Herrera. Take a closer look below.
Jennifer Lopez shows you how to mix-and-match prints with her latest look
In her most recent pictures, Jennifer Lopez was seen wearing a romantic, yet playful look by Carolina Herrera that comprised a vibrant yellow off-shoulder blouse, and a ruched white pencil skirt. While the top featured a halter-style tie-up, ruffles along the sleeves, and a 3D bloom at the neckline, Lopez’s floral skirt stood out for its intricate gathers, which added volume without taking attention away from her blouse. Despite their clashing prints, the star’s separates came together seamlessly, and were complemented further by a pair of PVC heels with a hot pink base.
To complete her look and bring in a little more synergy, Jennifer Lopez teamed her Carolina Herrera outfit with a fuchsia lip that worked well with the pink blooms patterned on her clothing, but opted for a muted yellow manicure. A collection of sparkling rings (including that much-talked-about green diamond engagement ring from now-husband Ben Affleck) added the final touch to her look. As for her hair and makeup, J.Lo went with a combination that never fails her: beautifully sculpted cheekbones, dreamy falsies, and a voluminous ponytail. This one’s a look you must bookmark for your next formal brunch outing.
With the New Year quickly approaching, January will offer a new collection of movies to watch on the top streaming platforms. Some of the films center around family, marriage, technology and nostalgia.
One of the highly anticipated projects is Netflix’s “You People,” which stars Jonah Hill, Eddie Murphy and Nia Long. Hill plays a man who falls in love with a Black woman and the couple attempts to convince her parents (played by Murphy and Long) that they belong together, despite their cultural differences.
Prime Video’s comedy “Shotgun Wedding” centers around a couple getting married in a tropical escape, when suddenly the entire wedding party gets held hostage. Starring Jennifer Lopez as the bride and Josh Duhamel as the groom, the couple fights for their love — literally.
