Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez's Most Iconic Red Carpet Moments
With the stars going their separate ways, we're looking back at all the times J. Lo and A-Rod slayed the red carpet together since their Met Gala debut in 2017
Before red carpets came to a halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Rodriguez was at his fiancée's side to support her at the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards, where she was nominated for her supporting role in Hustlers. It was the pair's final formal red carpet before their split, which PEOPLE confirmed on March 12, 2021. "This has been a long time coming," a source told PEOPLE.
However, on March 13, the pair released a statement to PEOPLE saying they are "working through some things."
"They never officially broke up and talked about it but are still together. They hit a rough patch. But were not broken up," a source close to the pair told PEOPLE.
On April 15, the pair made things final in a statement to PEOPLE.
"We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so. We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and one another's children. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have is to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support," the statement read.
Lopez had a golden glow about her as she and Rodriguez hit the Golden Globes red carpet on Jan. 5, 2020.
Even though her performance in Hustlers didn't win the award for best supporting actress in a motion picture, her then-fiancé reminded her that "it doesn't take a trophy, medal, or plaque to identify a true champion."
"To millions of young women who have watched you and have been inspired and empowered to do amazing things in their lives, you are a champion," he wrote in his encouraging message on Instagram.
"To everyone whose lives you enrich daily, you are a champion. And don't you ever forget it," he concluded along with three heart emojis.
The pair made sure to snap a smiling selfie on the red carpet ahead of the show. "Head of @jlo security, reporting for red carpet duty!" Rodriguez joked.
To kick off awards season 2020, Lopez brought the drama to the first red carpet of the decade, arriving to the Palm Springs International Film Festival Gala in a floral-print Richard Quinn gown with a flowing train.
The actress was honored with the Spotlight Award for her Hustlers performance at the Jan. 2, 2020, gala, where Rodriguez made sure to commemorate the special evening with a slew of photos.
Her playful purse may only be worth $10,000, but the "Dinero" singer and Rodriguez looked like a million bucks at the Hustlers premiere during the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.
Is there anything J. Lo hasn't won an award for? The multi-hyphenate entertainer was honored with the Fashion Icon Award at the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards in June 2019, and naturally showed up dressed to impress (and to make us wonder how many crunches we'd need to do to get abs like that).
The dashing duo were all smiles at the 2019 Academy Awards, where Lopez presented.
The duo hit the 2019 Grammys red carpet in show-stopping looks: Lopez in an instantly iconic wide-brimmed hat, and Rodriguez in a pink-and-emerald tux.
The couple shared a silly moment ahead of the December 2018 premiere of her film Second Act.
Rodriguez let his love shine while joining Lopez on the carpet.
The duo cracked each other up while posing for photos ahead of the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, where the mom-of-two took home the prestigious Video Vanguard Award.
Another red carpet, another opportunity for Rodriguez to show off his Instagram boyfriend skills.
The pair looked as perfect together as ever while they walked their second Met Gala red carpet in 2018.
The couple went ultra-glam as they hit the red carpet for the 2018 TIME 100 Gala, where Lopez - who was honored on the annual list of 100 of the world's most influential individuals - gave an epic performance.
Ahead of their red carpet debut at the 2017 Met Gala, Lopez - who dazzled in a pastel blue Valentino gown - shared a sweet selfie of her and her "macho bello" en route to Fashion's Biggest Night.
Rodriguez proved his Instagram boyfriend potential early on in the evening.
Only one month after going public with their relationship, the couple looked loved-up on the carpet.
