Jennifer Lopez steals the spotlight at the 2024 Met Gala in stunning sheer gown as Ben Affleck misses out on the fun post Tom Brady roast drama

Jennifer Lopez brought nothing but sheer elegance to the 2024 Met Gala on Monday night. The 54-year-old actress turned heads in a stunning Schiaparelli gown that perfectly accentuated her famous curves. The dress featured a striking, sculptural bust and a daringly low neckline, making Lopez stand out on the red carpet.

As she made her way up the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the floor-sweeping train of her gown, embellished with silver glitter leaves and vines, trailed behind her. Despite arriving solo without her husband Ben Affleck, who was notably absent due to a recent incident at Tom Brady’s Netflix roast, Lopez commanded attention and stole the spotlight at the prestigious event.

Completing her look with cream peep-toe pumps, Lopez’s custom haute couture ensemble was reminiscent of Emily Ratajkowski’s iconic bejeweled naked dress, adding an extra touch of glamour to the star-studded gala.
