Jennifer Lopez's Naked Dress Was Covered in 2.5 Million Silver Beads at the 2024 Met Gala

Don't fix what isn't broken.

Met Gala co-chair Jennifer Lopez has arrived on the carpet in the only way she knows how: dressed to perfection. Lopez, who is serving as co-chair alongside Bad Bunny, Zendaya, and Chris Hemsworth, also served one of her signature stunning looks wearing a tried-and-true classic: the bedazzled naked dress.



She's no stranger to the event, having attended fashion's biggest night for two decades, with 13 Met Galas under her bedazzled belt since 2004. And for 2024, Lopez wore might be considered her best look yet. Opting for a sheer gown covered in silver pearls and rhinestones by Schiaparelli Haute Couture, J.Lo's strapless sheath dress featured a vertiginous neckline, a slit in the front, and more than more than 2.5 million hand-embroidered bugles and beads.





The bling didn't stop there, and Lopez accessorized with a giant Tiffany & Co. diamond necklace in the shape of a butterfly, a cluster of diamond drop earrings that climbed up both ears, and a coordinating sparkly bracelet. She finished off her look with a champagne-colored clutch and her signature platform heels in the same shade.

Beauty-wise, she pulled her hair back into a sleek top knot and rather than her trademark smoky eye, she kept her makeup uncharacteristically low-key, ditching the lashes and adding a mix of green and pink shimmery eyeshadows.

Back on Apr. 18, Lopez teased her Met Gala look, saying that she was "still deciding" what to wear. “When Anna [Wintour] calls you and asks you to co-host the Met Gala along with her, it’s kind of the biggest night in fashion, and to raise money for the museum, it was a real honor,” she said in a clip for Vogue. “It’s a nice thing to be a part of.”

“I have a few different sketches. I’m still deciding,” she said at the time. “I’m also one of those people who chooses at the last minute. Like, I like choices, and then I go, ‘OK, this is how I feel today,’ and then we try to kind of create some type of amazing look—‘cause that is the night for looks!”

In 2023, Lopez arrived at the event in a crisscross halter dress from Ralph Lauren. The Karl Lagerfeld-inspired ensemble featured a birdcage fascinator and opera gloves. Lopez's beau, Ben Affleck, skipped out on the gala that year, but he has accompanied her in years prior.

In 2021, Lopez and Affleck attended the Met Gala together but didn't walk the carpet together. Lopez also enlisted Ralph Lauren for her outfit that year, and, in true J.Lo style, she topped it off with another statement-making hat. A sweet PDA moment between the two went viral after they were snapped kissing each other through face masks.
