JLo looked stunning in a black and blush cut out gown, opera gloves, and a black hat by Ralph Lauren. 

While talking to Vogue, she said she at first was not certain the hat was the best. ‘I wasn’t sure about the hat but now I’m kind of feeling it.’

And she met him.

‘I got to meet him, and as a little girl from the Bronx, who kind of aspired to be in the fashion world, to be an entertainer- to meet people like that was always such a dream for me.’

When talking about Lagerfeld, Lopez said, ‘I hate throwing around the word iconic, I’ve said this before.. but he actually was such an iconic figure in fashion.’ ‘What he did with Chanel for so long and keeping that brand so fresh, he really was a genius.’
