Jennifer Lopez cried during her Met Gala dress fitting. Jennifer Lopez may have looked confident and happy on the Met Gala red carpet, but the singer’s journey to get there was an emotional one.
The ‘On The Floor’ singer was feeling emotional due to her close relationship to Luigi Massi, one of the designers at Versace, who passed away last month at 53 following a heart attack.
In a behind-the-scenes video posted to her YouTube account about the making of her custom Versace gown, Lopez said: “Obviously, we’re saddened this year and cried during our first fitting, putting on this gown.”
The Grammy winner explained: ““Knowing Luigi was making this gown when he passed away. It’s difficult, but at the same time it’s also a celebration of his work.”
The silver beaded gown took 50 days to complete and it took Lopez an additional seven hours to look picture perfect for fashion’s biggest night.
Lopez and fiance Alex Rodriguez were a glamorous pair as the posed for the cameras on the Metropolitan Museum of Arts’ steps.
