To no one’s surprise, Jennifer Lopez had the most spectacular arrival on the carpet tonight at the 2019 CFDA Awards in New York. She is the Fashion Icon Award winner, of course.
The entertainer wore a Ralph Lauren two-piece in an orange-red tone that had a dramatic train. The top was covered in sequins and cut just above her abs. The skirt’s floor-length hem kept her shoes mostly covered, but its front slit gave her towering heels, done in the same color, a bit of a show. The shoes had a peep-toe front, chunky platform and around a 5-inch heel.
Her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, looked dapper in a tuxedo with Chelsea boots.
La La Anthony chatted with FN on the red carpet about her tips for standing in heels. “Core,” she revealed. “Suck your stomach in and just walk, otherwise you look like you’re slouched over.” The actress. who was joined by Ruthie Davis, had on the shoe designer’s black sandals that featured delicate straps up the leg and PVC crisscross straps around the toe.
