Venice Film Festival: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez at “The Last Duel” Premiere

Posted on September 10, 2021

 

We have liftoff.

 

 

We counted down to this appearance because we knew it wouldn’t disappoint and one thing you can say about T Lo, we know our J Lo. As a formal announcement and a personal branding statement, this is a truly spectacular look. Whatever else you can say about the timing of this relationship, it truly is astonishing how well she’s controlled her narrative after her breakup with A Rod. What could have been a “poor pathetic spinster” period of press has instead seen her come out on top as one half of the most talked-about celebrity couple of the year. Brava, Jen. You both look like the epitome of A-list superstardom.

It’s kind of hard to deny the sense that she’s deliberately working a vaguely nuptial theme here, but we’re provided to maybe-sorta admit that we could possibly, from some perspectives, be reading too much into it just a skosh. Possibly. All kidding aside, if she were really going for a bridal allusion, she picked the least bridal white gown she could find for it. And like we said earlier today, white is pretty much her go-to choice.

Anyway, she looks spectacular, which isn’t exactly news, and he looks the best he has in years.
