Jennifer Lopez Says Alex Rodriguez Looks Sexiest 'in a Suit'
The global superstar opens up to PEOPLE about her fiancé on the red carpet at the 2019 CFDA Awards at the Brooklyn Museum
“I love Alex in a suit!” Lopez, 49, tells PEOPLE on the red carpet at the 2019 CFDA Awards Monday night. “I mean he looks great in everything. He just wears clothes really well. But I love him in a suit!”
Rodriguez, 43, joined Lopez looked dapper as he joined her for the fashion event in a perfectly tailored Tom Ford suit that brought his lady back to when they first started dating in early 2017.
“He loves to wear [them]. It’s one of the things I loved about him when I first met him is that he wore so many suits every day like he was always getting dressed up for a business meeting or something,” Lopez says. “It just reminded me of my dad wearing a tie going to work. It was a great thing.”
Though Rodriguez looked super stylish on the CFDA Awards red carpet, the night was all about Lopez, dressed in a custom Ralph Lauren two piece to pick up the CFDA’s prestigious Fashion Icon Award.
“It’s a real honor among all these amazing artists and designers for them to pick you out for your fashion and your style, for something I love to do anyway. I love dressing up,” Lopez says.
She continues: “I’ve loved [fashion] since I was a little girl. I was cutting up all my sweatshirts and jeans in the Bronx and trying to be like Janet [Jackson] and Madonna and Cyndi Lauper. So it is a fun time.”
After her date night with A.Rod, the star had to hurry home to finish last-minute preparations before her It’s My Party tour kicks off on Friday in Inglewood, California.
“It’s coming out to be a really amazing show and moment. I really wanted to create a beautiful party atmosphere in the arena and I think we accomplished that,” Lopez says. “It is Friday. It is creeping up on me little by little!”
“Her schedule is extremely intense, but she is super excited,” a source previously told PEOPLE. “Alex is very supportive and will be at most of her shows over the summer. They will travel as a family all around the U.S.”
The source added that the couple likely “are not doing a huge wedding” and may instead opt for “a small family celebration that will, of course, include all four kids.”
