The singer has unveiled the three jaw-dropping Ralph Lauren dresses she wore for her extravagant second wedding to Ben Affleck.
Jennifer Lopez has unveiled the dresses she wore to her second wedding to Ben Affleck over the weekend.
The stylish superstar married Affleck (again) in an epic all-white wedding ceremony at his Georgia home on August 20, sporting three Ralph Lauren gowns in one night.
The first, which Lopez wore to walk down the aisle, was a twist on the designer’s classic turtleneck column dress, reports the New York Post.
Over 1,000 handkerchiefs and 500 meters of fabric were cut into ruffles and attached by hand to create the voluminous, romantic skirt, per Ralph Lauren’s press release, and the look was paired with a cathedral-length veil for an added dose of drama.
For the reception, Lopez, 53, changed into a chandelier-inspired gown adorned with thousands of cascading strings of pearls. Thirty artisans spent 700 hours hand-embroidering the garment with micro-pleats of silk tulle, tiny pearl embellishments and Swarovski crystals.
Last, but certainly not least, the singer and actress switched it up with a sleek mermaid-style gown with a Swarovski crystal-embellished keyhole and full skirt topped with a hoodlike organza overlay.
Affleck, meanwhile, said “I do” in a Ralph Lauren tuxedo featuring a cream-coloured, single-buttoned dinner jacket with a black double-pleated trouser and bib shirt, along with a black bow tie and black patent shoes, while the bride and groom’s five children matched in white Ralph Lauren looks of their own.
Lopez previously tied the knot with the Last Duel actor, 50, in a low-key Las Vegas ceremony in July, for which she wore two more dresses — a lacy off-the-shoulder Zuhair Murad design “from an old movie” and a sleeveless Alexander McQueen number she said she’d been saving “for so many years” — bringing her total tally of wedding gowns up to five.
The groom wore a Ralph Lauren Couture white tuxedo jacket, black trousers and a black bow-tie — the outfit is strikingly similar if not the exact same as what he wore to the Little White Chapel when the pair officially wed — while his three children and J.Lo’s twins all matched in white Ralph Lauren Couture looks.
Violet Affleck, 16, chose a stunning ballgown, while siblings Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10, chose a suit and tuxedo, respectively, similar to those worn by Lopez’s twins Max and Emme Muñiz, 14.
Bennifer’s A-list guests all wore white, in keeping with the theme of Saturday’s party — which was only the second event of the weekend, following a welcome party on Friday and preceding a barbecue on Sunday.
