Jennifer Lopez wears revealing dress that took 800 hours to make – but all eyes are on one specific detail

When it comes to large-scale celebrity events and red carpets, it can be safely assumed that the A-listers involved – and their teams – spend a deal of time thinking about what to wear.

After all, in an age where photos and videos are uploaded to the internet almost in real time, it pays to be astute where one’s outfit is concerned. In fact, these days some celebrities are forced to decide upon their wardrobe choices for a given event way ahead of time… since certain dresses can take as long as 800 hours to make!

That was the case, at least, for the dress Jennifer Lopez donned at this year’s Met Gala earlier this month. The theme was “Garden of Time”, and the singer – who currently finds her name in the headlines as a result of speculation surrounding her marriage to Ben Affleck – certainly went all in.

As per reports, Lopez’s sheer, mermaid-style silver gown demanded more than 800 hours of hand embroidery to bring it to life.

Not only that, but it was put together with 2,500,000 silver foil bugles and beads, resulting in a truly breath-taking spectacle when Lopez donned it for the red carpet.

Needless to say, there was plenty of praise showered on the This Is Me Now singer in light of the event, though if we’re being honest, Lopez’s detractors were out in force too.

The star fielded some fairly harsh comments regarding her appearance, with critics arguing that J-Lo was attempting to hide how she looks by editing images.

“She shows her age. Face,” wrote one person on Instagram.

Another chimed: “We’ve seen the unfiltered picture of this and it’s not the same.”

A third added: “Your face is old and wrinkled.”

A fourth, meanwhile, opined: “Why does she edit her pics? Everyone knows she’s older.”

Of course, Lopez has significantly bigger things to worry about than the claims made by internet denizens she’s never met.

Recently rumors have insisted that there’s trouble in paradise concerning her marriage to actor Ben Affleck. The two became one of the celebrity world’s most ‘It’ couples after tying the knot in 2022, but reports now have suggested they may be heading towards divorce.

We’ll stress that it really is just speculation at this point – nothing has been officially confirmed by either Lopez or Affleck – but if you subscribe to the theory that there’s no smoke without fire, it makes for a curious situation to follow.
