How extreme can a leg slit get? Jennifer Lopez answers that question with a Valentino dress featuring nearly waist-high side slits. The superstar was photographed out wearing the look while furniture shopping in West Hollywood yesterday. She accessorized with knee-high leather boots and a matching Gucci handbag.
Lopez and her husband Ben Affleck recently closed a deal on a $61 million house in Beverly Hills—which likely explains why she was shopping for home pieces. The mansion reportedly has 12 bedrooms, 24 bathrooms, a sports complex, and a pool among other things listed. (So they’re going to need a lot of furniture.)
Lopez and Affleck reunited in the spring of 2021, this time with the intention of staying together for good. “I think now that we’re older, we realize, it’s much more clear, because…when we felt that way, now we know. Now, we know,” Lopez told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe in November.
“And there is no questions and there is no kind of like, ‘Well, let’s see how this goes.’ Like, ‘Nope, it’s me and you. That’s it. All the way, till the end. That’s it. It’s going to be us,’” she added.
While Lopez and Affleck have a long history—they were engaged back in 2002—they still had to be sensitive to how their kids would react to their relationship when they resumed their romance.
“We had our kids and we had to tread lightly and carefully so they could come along with us…Because they didn’t live those years before,” Lopez added. “And they’re like, ‘Wow, they’ve known each other forever.’ And that’s it. We did know each other forever, and we had to live these separate paths and we did other beautiful things and we had these amazing children. But when we came back together and the universe and God and, as it would have it… Once we got whole enough and complete enough and loved ourselves enough and could stand on our own two feet really completely, as the universe would have it, we were brought into each other’s lives again. And it was a crack in the clouds and that song came through and it was like, ‘Boom, that’s it.’ And we were both very sure.”
