J Lo's Western-Inspired Ralph Lauren Met Gala Look Comes With a Shoe Surprise
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 jewelry, 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, we truly wouldn't expect anything else. Scroll to admire her look from all angles, then see her posing with Ben Affleck.
