There were so many unforgettable looks on the red carpet at the 2021 Met Gala, but one of the biggest highlights of the event was the romantic kiss between Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck!

The couple were snapped by photographers at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York on Sept. 13. They posed with their arms around each other as they made their way inside the 2021 Met Gala celebrating "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion" before they stopped in front of a leafy display and shared a kiss for the cameras.

Jennifer and Ben were both clad in face masks to keep everyone safe from COVID-19, but the non-medical masks didn't change the romantic mood of the photo. The love birds had their eyes closed and Jennifer held her phone in her left hand as she kissed her beau.

Prior to the sweet PDA moment, J.Lo sizzled on the red carpet in a dramatic Ralph Lauren gown and faux fur stole. She wore statement jewelry, a fedora and silver heels from DSW.
