Puerto Rican artists Jennifer López and Bad Bunny turned heads last night at the Met Gala with looks aligned with the event’s theme “The Garden of Time.”

The annual fundraising gala is held for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York, and is considered “fashion’s biggest night out.”

López stunned with a sheer sparkling Schiaparelli Haute Couture gown that looked like butterfly wings.

According to People, her dress took over 800 hours of hand embroidery to craft and was made with 2,500,000 silver foil bugles and beads.

The actress and singer wore Tiffany & Co. jewels. Her necklace included one diamond of over 20 carats and a total of 75 total carats of diamonds from the Tiffany Celéste Collection.

López served as co-chair of the event, alongside Zendaya, Chris Hemsworth, and Bad Bunny.

Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, Bad Bunny’s real name, wore an outfit from the Maison Margiela Artisanal Collection by John Galliano. It featured a black satin corset and a navy barathea wool smoking jacket that was adorned with black grosgrain lapels. He also wore a gigantic beret paired with tiny sunglasses.

His shoes were crafted to resemble the shape of a goat. Honoring Puerto Rico, Bad Bunny, carried a black Flor de Maga, the national flower of the island.

Bad Bunny and his ex, model Kendall Jenner, were spotted hanging out and cuddling at the Après Met 2 Met Gala Afterparty at WSA in New York City.

“They were at the same table, laughing and flirting. She was rubbing his head,” an insider confirmed to Page Six.

Bad Bunny and Jenner reportedly broke up at the end of last year after eight months of dating.

The artist referenced his romance with the model in several songs on his new album, “Nadie sabe lo que va a pasar mañana.”

But Bad Bunny and López were not the only Boricuas at the Met. Rauw Alejandro showed up in a custom Ludovic de Saint Sernin white suit with a silver metal mesh top, also featuring a Flor de Maga, but in Swarovski crystals. The artist’s ex-fiancée, the Spanish singer Rosalía, attended the gala as well, but unlike Jenner and Bad Bunny, they were not spotted together.
