Ben Affleck, king of award show memes and number one Dunkin’ Donuts fan, has secretly played a role in styling some of our favorite red-carpet fashion moments. Speaking with Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos during her May 5 appearance on “Live With Kelly and Mark,” Jennifer Lopez revealed that Affleck has been moonlighting as her personal stylist behind the scenes.
“He’ll joke with me sometimes, though, and he’ll say things like, ‘Where’s the rest of the shirt?'”
“Yes, he absolutely does,” Lopez confirmed, laughing, when Consuelos asked if Affleck gives her fashion advice. In the same way that Affleck is brutally honest about his past roommates, he doesn’t hold back when it comes to critiquing Lopez’s style.
“He doesn’t come to the fittings or anything like that, but I feel like if I’m getting dressed and we’re going to a red carpet or some big event — like he had his [“Air”] premiere — I’m like, ‘Do you like this one or this one?’ And he’s like, ‘I like that,’ or ‘Oh! That’s so much better on you than the other one.’ Sometimes it’s not what I think, too, which is funny.” For the record, Lopez looked incredible at the “Air” premiere in a neon green Antonio Grimaldi dress covered in crystal beading.
When Ripa asked if Affleck has any specific judging criteria — namely, whether he prefers sexier outfits — Lopez clarified that her husband lives in the moment when it comes to fashion. “I don’t think he prefers either or,” Lopez said. “It’s just whatever looks the nicest or what he thinks looks the nicest in that moment. He’ll joke with me sometimes, though, and he’ll say things like, ‘Where’s the rest of the shirt?’ or things like that. And I’m like, ‘This one doesn‘t have anything else.'”
Since the beginning of her career, J Lo has been crushing the fashion game — Google Images was inspired by her viral green Versace dress at the 2000 Grammy awards, after all. More recently, she stunned in an open-backed Ralph Lauren dress at the Met Gala, and she’s been delivering unforgettable style moments non-stop for weeks.
