Just call her J. Lu.
Jennifer Lopez shut down the 2021 Venice Film Festival on Friday when she arrived to support boyfriend Ben Affleck at the premiere of “The Last Duel,” wearing a plunging white Georges Hobeika gown with an embellished neckline.
But “Real Housewives of New York” star Luann de Lesseps may have originated the look.
“Love the #dress @jlo 👏 Hot 🔥,” the Countess captioned side-by-side photos of her own style and the pop superstar’s on Instagram Monday.
Lu’s version of the dress, acquired from Sweet Neens Thrift & Vintage, appeared in the “RHONY” Season 9 reunion — and actually holds a special place in her heart, as she originally wore it to her rehearsal dinner before marrying ex-husband Tom D’Agostino.
The reunion was filmed after the nuptials, but before de Lesseps announced her divorce from D’Agostino — though the season included Bethenny Frankel’s infamous reveal that the businessman was caught making out with his ex-girlfriend at the Regency the night before their 2016 engagement party.
The two wed in a New Year’s Eve ceremony in Palm Beach to ring in 2017, but their tumultuous relationship resulted in plenty of fights prior to their eventual split.
In the years since, the reality star has gotten arrested, gone to rehab and gotten sober, all the while continuing her starring role in the Bravo show.
Hopefully J.Lo’s dazzling dress doesn’t portend similar drama for Bennifer 2.0.
