At long last, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have arrived.
The couple touched down on the red carpet on the second to last day of the Venice Film Festival for Affleck’s latest movie, “The Last Duel,” which he also wrote the screenplay for. Starring alongside him are Matt Damon, Adam Driver and Jodie Comer.
Adapted from the book of the same name by Eric Jager, the historical drama, directed by Ridley Scott, is set in 14th-century France and tells the story of a woman who has been raped by her husband’s best friend.
Her husband then challenges his friend and a squire to trial by combat, which ultimately becomes the last legally sanctioned duel in the country’s history.
Styled by Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, Lopez wore a Georges Hobeika couture dress from its fall 2021 collection and topped the look off with a diamond bracelet, earrings and ring from Cartier and metallic silver Jimmy Choo platform heels. Affleck wore a simple black tuxedo finished with a bowtie.
The singer and actress, 52, and her actor boyfriend, 49, shared a kiss on the red carpet.
For the event, Lopez sizzled in a white eye-catching dress which showcased her cleavage. The dress featured a daring thigh-split and fishtail design.
Meanwhile Ben looked dapper in a black suit, crisp white shirt, and black bow tie.
Ben and Lopez got back together in April 2021 after years apart. The couple were engaged between 2002 and 2003 but cancelled their planned wedding in 2003 due to ‘excessive media attention’ before splitting just months later.
