Adhering to the "Garden of Time" dress code, the 54-year-old Lopez stunned in a sheer Schiaparelli Haute Couture gown, adorned with sparkling embellishments resembling butterfly wings.

She complemented her ethereal ensemble with mesmerizing jewels from Tiffany & Co., while elegantly styling her hair in a slightly tousled topknot.


Her gown, a masterpiece of craftsmanship, demanded over 800 hours of meticulous hand embroidery. Crafted with 2,500,000 silver foil bugles and beads, its beauty was not confined to the front; from every angle, including the back, it radiated sheer magnificence.
