Hey Now — J Lo's Met Gala Look Is a Reminder That She's an American Designer, Too
Jennifer Lopez chose to attend the 2021 Met Gala with iconic American designer Ralph Lauren, who custom created a plunging gown embellished with beads and feathers. She wore a two-toned, furry fringed bolero with the dress, a cowgirl hat, a leather choker, and silver plated jewellery, fully embracing Western vibes.
It's an aesthetic she's pulled off before — including that incredible leg slit that rose to the top of her thigh. The detail also worked to highlight her metallic platform heels, which are actually from her own collection for DSW. She proudly celebrated the sky-high shoes in a behind-the-scenes video with her stylist Rob Zangardi, reminding us that she, too, is an American designer worth celebrating.
By paying homage both to Ralph Lauren's fashion house that was founded in 1967 and her own talents as a collaborator in the industry, J Lo practiced gratitude and self love on the carpet. When it comes to Jennifer Lopez, we truly wouldn't expect anything else.
