Lopez also admitted that the jumper affected her look at the star-studded holiday party she threw with Ben Affleck, 50, at their Los Angeles home earlier this month.
“I also chose hummingbird colors for my dresses for this year’s holiday party,” she wrote. “It’s a Gucci dress I had in my closet that I bought a year ago and have been waiting for the perfect occasion to wear. I thought it was perfect for the Hummingbird Christmas party.”

The sleeves of the dress, which wrapped around her wrist, transition to black velvet cuffs and a silver pattern accentuating the dress’s high neckline. She accessorized the dress with silver dangling earrings and wore her hair in a sleek ponytail.

The party was full of family, friends, colleagues and people we’ve known over the years. We sang and danced and just had a great time.”
