Love was certainly in the air between Jennifer Lopez (JLO) and her husband, Ben Affleck, who celebrated their GRAMMY debut as a couple on Sunday (Feb. 5).
Upon her arrival to Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, Lopez turned heads in her sculpted navy ensemble, which featured rhinestone sleeves and crystallized strands that flowed from the top of the Gucci gown to the bottom of the sheer, ruffled fabric. She paired the outfit with a blinged-out Bvlgari necklace, silver earrings, chunky rings, matching platform heels, and a soft glam makeup look.

Affleck stood by her side throughout the night wearing a classic, yet sleek suit.
Lopez wasn’t nominated in any categories for this year’s GRAMMY Awards, but she did have the pleasure of presenting Harry Styles with the first GRAMMY award of the night for Best Pop Vocal Album for his project, Harry’s House.
“I love music’s biggest night,” Lopez said before presenting the coveted award. “And I’m so excited to present our first Grammy award this evening. It was, can seem like a single’s world, this category celebrates excellence.”
