Jennifer Lopez Formally Glows in Black Gown and Platform Stilettos with Ben Affleck at JR Ridinger’s Celebration of Life

Jennifer Lopez made a formal arrival to mogul JR Ridinger’s celebration of life in Miami — with heels to match.

While arriving to the occasion with husband Ben Affleck, Lopez wore a black ankle-length gown. The Grammy Award-winning musician‘ style featured a sleeveless silhouette, complete with a rounded neckline. A metallic collar necklace, post earrings and cocktail ring, as well as two layered bracelets — a sculpted gold floral cuff and string of white beads — further complemented her ensemble. Lopez finished her outfit with a quilted black leather Chanel shoulder bag.

When it came to footwear, the “Papi” singer wore a set of platform-soled sandals. Her style featured thick soles with curved toe straps, which appeared to be crafted from black suede. Completing the set with a sky-high finish were stiletto heels, likely totaling at least 5 inches in height. The pair fit into the event’s traditional dress code to create a monochrome finish for Lopez’s ensemble. However, it also provided her with a strong height boost in the process — a longtime staple of the star’s shoe wardrobe, which often includes footwear with platform soles and towering heels.
