As Bennifer Is Officially Reunited, A Look Back At Some Of JLo’s Best Style Moments

You're welcome.

It's official: Bennifer have hit Instagram. Posting from a yacht over her 52nd birthday weekend, JLo confirmed the rumours that she and Ben Affleck, her beau from way back in the early '00s, have reunited in the most spectacular fashion. Choosing a logoed triangle bikini and kaftan from Valentino - plus a cocktail ring the size of a gobstopper from Dolce & Gabbana - JLo posted a picture of what can only be described as an old-school lip lock with Affleck.

Let's rewind to the first time round. It was the beginning of the Noughties, and JLo was fresh off the romantic comedy circuit having just starred in The Wedding Planner (with the classic line, 'You saved my shoe, I mean me', when she's rescued by Matthew McConaughey), and Maid in Manhattan. Peak Bennifer was 2003's Oscars (the couple would call off their wedding in September 2003) and her choice of dress pretty much summed up the mood. It was an almost-green-almost-cream gown from Valentino, beaded at the hem and swooping across one shoulder, which she paired with shoulder-grazing earrings from Harry Winston. It couldn't have cemented her move towards movie-stardom any better.

Now that the former couple is now officially a couple once more (see the above slide for incontrovertible evidence), what better excuse for a JLo-themed fashion retrospective? Whether it was pedal pushers and a beret on the red carpet or a silver-fringed gown to the Met Gala, one thing is for certain, JLo only has one setting: iconic.
