Jennifer Lopez showed off a sweeter side to her style during her time abroad.

As shared by her stylist Rob Zangaradi, the “Hustlers” actress visited an exquisite garden while in Italy for the Venice Film Festival this past week. For the outing, Lopez modeled a full Dior look that layered a silky polka dot dress over coordinating shorts for a unique look.

Her outfit also included a mini clutch bag and a statement set of black sandals; the square-toe pair featured a cage-like hold across the ankle, tapping into summer trends for wrapped shoes.

Just this past Monday, J-Lo herself stole the show at the 2021 Met Gala.

Arriving at the event taking place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the “On the Floor” musician tapped Ralph Lauren for her evening wear. The plunging design included endless layers of beading with subtle designs across the entirety of the brown fabric. To elevate the number further, the number included an Indiana Jones-style leather belt, wide-brim hat and furry shawl.

On her feet, the “Hustlers” actress decided to give her look another boost in towering metallic sandals. The sky-high heels featured a lifted toe and securing straps across the ankle, all balanced atop a tall block heel. As credited by her stylist Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, the heels come courtesy of DSW for an affordable twist.

It was just last year when the “Second Chance” actress dipped her own toes into the footwear industry. Though she had previously worked with a mix of brands on collaborations and campaigns, the JLo Jennifer Lopez collection at DSW is the musician’s first solo line; the label includes a variety of stylish footwear ranging from sky-high platforms and glittering pumps to strappy sandals, all retailing from $59 to $189.

As if all of her titles were not enough, the past few seasons alone, the musician also has been featured in major campaigns as well as a few top names for fall ’21, too. She modeled for Versace, stars in ads for Guess and Coach on top of serving as a judge and executive producer for “World of Dance.” She also released a new J-Lo Beauty line earlier this season as well.
