Joined by Ben Affleck, Lopez was recognized as one of the industry’s influential women.

Jennifer Lopez, always a trendsetter, made a striking appearance at the ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards on Dec. 5, held at Nya Studios in Los Angeles, accompanied by her husband Ben Affleck.

The 54-year-old singer and actress chose a bold, futuristic silver chrome breastplate for the event, which tastefully revealed a hint of underboob and her midriff. She paired this avant-garde piece with a classic black pencil skirt and strappy black pumps.

Lopez completed her look with intricate dangle earrings and a sleek, pulled-back hairstyle. Affleck, 51, complemented her in a timeless black suit and tie.

The couple, who wed in August 2022, shared a romantic kiss on the red carpet, capturing the attention of photographers.

The ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards celebrates influential women in the industry, from those who shine on the red carpet and behind the camera to the magazine’s cover stars.

Lopez was among the notable figures honored in ELLE’s 2023 Women in Hollywood issue, alongside Nina Garcia, America Ferrera, Danielle Brooks, Eva Longoria, Fantasia Barrino, Greta Lee, Jodie Foster, Lily Gladstone, and Taraji P. Henson.

In her conversation with ELLE, Lopez discussed the evolving landscape of roles for mature women in acting.

“Women only grow more alluring with age, gaining wisdom and an inner beauty that’s equally compelling,” she remarked. “Hollywood’s shifting attitudes towards age are not just appropriate, but necessary.”

Lopez, embracing her journey, has no intention of defining an endpoint for her career.

“Whether it’s at 70, 80, or 90, I refuse to be limited by age, background, or any other factor. These constraints don’t apply to me,” she shared with Elle.

Lopez is set to release her album, This Is Me… Now, on Feb. 16, following the debut of her single, “Can’t Get Enough,” on Jan. 10.
