Bennifer 2.0 has officially arrived! Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck appeared on the red carpet together for the first time in 18 years at the Venice Film Festival on Friday. The couple made their debut at the premiere of The Last Duel, an upcoming historical drama starring Affleck and his pal Matt Damon.
Lopez stunned in a white Georges Hobeika gown with a plunging neckline. She paired the bridal-worthy dress with jewels from Cartier and silver Jimmy Choo heels. Affleck looked dapper in a black tuxedo, but kept all eyes on his leading lady. Lopez wore her hair down in loose waves created by hairstylist Chris Appleton, while makeup artist Mary Phillips gave her a soft bronze glam look.
The couple looked very much in love as they walked the red carpet, laughing and holding hands. Affleck was photographed whispering in Lopez’s ear, and the duo even shared a kiss in front of photographers.
After famously breaking off their engagement in 2003, the couple reunited earlier this year after they both ended their respective high-profile relationships. Much to the delight of Bennifer fans everywhere, Lopez and Affleck have given us plenty of PDA moments since their reunion, including a recreation of her 2002 “Jenny From the Block” music video.
The pair packed on the PDA as they arrived in Venice by boat on Thursday ahead of the premiere of Affleck’s latest film. This is their first red carpet appearance together since 2003, when they attended the premiere of their film Gigli before breaking up the following year. Here's hoping this is the start of plenty more joint carpet appearances to come!
