Jennifer Lopez slammed for choice of outfit at stepdaughter Seraphina's school play, while mom Jennifer Garner hailed
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Jennifer Lopez and her husband, Ben Affleck, made a grand entrance at his youngest daughter Seraphina's school play in Los Angeles on Saturday, May 20. However, many fans thought the 'Booty' singer was "overdressed" for the function and that she "upstaged" her stepdaughter.
Lopez, 53, was seen in red ruffled maxi dress with a thigh-high slit that showed off her toned legs, along with a matching purse and patent leather platform heels. Affleck, 50, opted for a more understated look in basic black. 'The Mother' actress followed closely behind him, accompanied by her 15-year-old son, Maximilian Muniz, and a mystery girl wearing a tiara. Lopez shares twins Max and Emme with her ex-husband Marc Anthony, whom she divorced in 2011 after seven years of marriage.

Blended family time
The event provided an opportunity for Lopez to bond with her stepdaughter, Violet, who was seen affectionately wrapping her arm around the singer-actress. Despite wearing flat sneakers, Violet towered over Lopez. Seraphina, whom Affleck shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, was seen looking casual and chic in a denim jacket and red cargo shorts as she exited the theater holding two bouquets after her performance.
Garner, a four-time Emmy nominee, was sporting casual outfit consisting of mom jeans, a white T-shirt, black jacket and sneakers. Their 11-year-old son Samuel was not present at the event. Lopez and Garner did not speak to each other during the gathering, as per Daily Mail.
Lopez and Affleck, who got married in 2022, will celebrate their first wedding anniversary on July 16.
'Did she forget it was not about her'
Internet users slammed Lopez for upstaging Seraphina's moment. A user wrote on Facebook, "Too overdressed for a stepdaughter's play. I think she always want to be the center of attention... & Look at the mother, so simple, i find her more beautiful than JLo with her simplicity." Another added, "Lol, that’s why Jennifer Garner is sooo well loved. She’s down to earth, dresses in what she feels like and is totally gorgeous. Jenny L though, has an inferior complex and has to always dress up even when it’s not appropriate. Who wants to upstage their step daughter?" A third claimed, "That outfit doing tooo much over shine that poor girl ohh no !! Poor choice." A fourth commented, "Did she forget it was not about her." "She is so over the top...," another commented.
