It’s not a stretch to imagine that Cardi B’s hit song “Drip” was actually inspired by ice (bling) queen Jennifer Lopez. J.Lo comes through drippin’ at essentially every event—her blinding accessories competing for attention against her daring couture gowns.
To put it simply: Ms. Lopez always comes to play.
Of course, Monday evening was no different. Lopez and beau Alex Rodriguez attended an N.Y.C. benefit for the Robin Hood Foundation (which aptly aids the city’s poor), and all eyes fell to the singer.
The 48-year-old arrived in a long black Alex Perry gown (shop a similar style here) with structured shoulders and Swarovski crystal embellishments—and, get this: a slit that ran all the way up to her ribcage (!).
To be fair, there was a bit of optical trickery at play—in reality, Lopez’s slit starts at the very top of her thigh, but a lengthy stretch of beige fabric gives the illusion that her torso is on display as well.
Regardless of the amount of skin actually peeking out from beneath the dress’s slit, the gown itself is no doubt sexy and bold (two of Lopez’s most beloved sartorial devices). Paired with black platform pumps, diamond drop earrings, and blinged-out rings galore, Jen’s look truly sparkled.
Jen and Alex weren’t the only A-list couple to step out for a good cause. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas attended as well, members of an exclusive crowd that included Oprah Winfrey, Leslie Jones, and Jerry Seinfeld.
