Months into her engagement with Alex Rodriguez, Jennifer Lopez has finally dropped a wedding dress hint — and the tiny tidbit actually reveals a lot about the direction she might be going with her gown. Spoiler alert? She may be big on both fashion and drama, but her wedding dress will be anything but (big, that is).
On Monday, Lopez attended the 2019 Governors Awards, where she caught up with Extra’s Terri Seymour. Talk invariably turned to the new film the entertainer has been working on: Marry Me, which is slated for release on Jan. 1, 2020. In the film, Lopez plays a pop superstar jilted by her rockstar fiancé moments before their wedding at Madison Square Garden, so she marries a random guy from the crowd instead. And you know what that means, right? There will be at least one wedding gown in the rom-com. As a matter of fact, Lopez has already been spotted filming in a stunning Zuhair Murad dress.
Knowing this, Seymour asked Lopez whether being in bridal couture for the film was giving Lopez any inspiration for her real-life nuptials. “I know I don’t want one as big as I’m wearing in the movie,” she exclaimed, adding, “That one is a lot to carry around… too big!”
She quickly noted that the Zuhair Murad in the movie is “amazing” and she was “so lucky” she got to wear it. Still, now we know one thing about Lopez’s big-day dress we didn’t know before: It won’t be huge. Does this mean she’s going sleek and form-fitting? That tracks, if you ask us. Alas, it may still be a while before we get more details since, when asked if she already had her gown, Lopez admitted, “Not yet.”
On the plus side, another major event in Lopez’s life is a little further along in the development phase, her Super Bowl Halftime Show. “I’ve been doing a lot of meetings about the Super Bowl, been prepping and hiring the people and putting concepts and ideas for the show together,” she told Extra. “Shakira and I have spoken a few times already. She’s putting her thing together, [I’m] putting my thing together, thinking about who we want to join us on stage if we want that.”
And while the women haven’t yet decided if there will be any special guests joining them, they know what they want to accomplish with their set. “We want to make a beautiful, impactful, enjoyable, fun show for everybody. We want to bring everybody together. That’s the point,” Lopez said. “We as artists have that rare gift to be able to do that, and that’s what I think our main goal is.”
