Lopez and Affleck were hardly the only celebrities in attendance at this year’s gala. Billie Eilish, Jessica Chastain, Paris Hilton and Heidi Klum also appeared at the star-studded event. Michelin Star chef Mattia Agazzi of Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura in Beverly Hills catered dinner for the evening, which was followed by a performance by Lenny Kravitz.
Gucci brought the runway to the museum with the introduction of Gucci Ancora Notte, the first eveningwear collection designed by Sabato De Sarno.
It’s been a busy year for Lopez, who went on an extensive press tour for her latest film, “The Mother,” this spring. Directed by Niki Caro, Netflix’s “The Mother” stars Lopez as an ex-assassin who comes out of retirement to rescue her estranged daughter.
Lopez also became an ambassador for the lingerie brand Intimissimi, appearing in their spring 2023 campaign before revealing her first collaborative line with the company in October.
