She explained that before attending significant events, she seeks the opinion of the 50-year-old and asks questions like, "What do you think? Is this one or this one? Do you like this, or do you like this?" The superstar clarified that the "Dazed and Confused" actor does not prefer her style, stating that he likes whatever looks the nicest. 

Lopez then noted that while her beau's opinion on her choices could be a bit unexpected occasionally, she still finds it amusing when his feedback does not align with her initial thoughts. She further stated that his feedback could be humorous, with him occasionally jokingly asking, "Where's the rest of the shirt?" when she wears skin-bearing ensembles.

Although Lopez gets advice from her handsome partner, Affleck also benefits from her vast knowledge of everything fashionable. Several months back, the film producer disclosed that she profoundly impacted his fashion sense while he was working on his movie "Air." 

The sports drama, which will mark his fifth directorial work, chronicles the development of the Air Jordan line, Nike's legendary collaboration with Michael Jordan. The film will be produced under his and Matt Damon's new production company, Artists Equity. 

During a conversation with The Hollywood Reporter, he praised his wife's advice for filming, calling it "brilliant." He explained that she is "incredibly knowledgeable about how fashion evolves through the culture as a confluence of music, sports, entertainment, and dance."

According to the filmmaker, she helped him by "talking about how a part of the reason why Jordans [the shoes] were so meaningful is that culture and style in America are 90 percent driven by Black culture."
