Lopez’s distressed dress clung to her enviably trim figure, while boasting a stunning stamped pattern throughout.

Resting on Jennifer’s shoulders was a gorgeous black fur shall, which she removed briefly in order to have her Met Gala look captured in all its glory. 

She accessorized in all silver jewelry, including a chunky choker that hid her entire neck from view and varying wrist cuffs.

Hanging just below her choker was a large statement necklace that fell perfectly into her cleavage. She also rocked a pair of drop earrings.

‘[They have each] developed a distinct visual language for their public personas, one that is informed by the legacy of iconic fashion made in the USA.’

The must-have accessory for all at this year’s gala is a Covid-19 vaccine.  

‘Currently, all attendees at The Met Gala on September 13 must provide proof of full vaccination and will also be expected to wear masks indoors except when eating or drinking,’ a spokesperson for The Met said last month.

This year’s gala will be a more intimate affair, to be followed by a larger one on May 2, 2022. Both will launch a two-part exhibition, a survey of American fashion to be on view for almost a year.

In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, opening Sept. 18, will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the museum’s Costume Institute and ‘explore a modern vocabulary of American fashion,’ the spokesperson added. 

Part two, In America: An Anthology of Fashion, will open in the museum’s popular American Wing period rooms on May 5, 2022, and will explore American fashion, with collaborations with film directors, by ‘presenting narratives that relate to the complex and layered histories of those spaces.’ Both parts will close on Sept. 5, 2022.
