Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck show PDA inside the Met Gala, days after their red carpet debut

The Bennifer 2.0 tour continues.

Jennifer Lopez may have posed on the Met Gala steps alone Monday night, but her boyfriend, Ben Affleck, was still in attendance – the two weren't shy with showing off PDA after stepping inside the event, sharing a kiss with their masks still on.

Lopez, frequently a Met Gala standout, interpreted the evening's theme, "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion," with a nod to the Wild West with a Ralph Lauren gown, wide-brimmed hat, faux fur cape and a leather belt. It took 15 embroiderers more than 12 days of work to complete the look, according to the designer

Just days prior, Lopez and Affleck made their relationship red carpet official at the Venice Film Festival on Friday.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez attend the The 2021 Met Gala Celebrating In America: A Lexicon Of Fashion at Metropolitan Museum of Art on Sept. 13, 2021 in New York City.

The new couple, who were previously engaged from 2002 to 2004, made their red carpet debut like it was the early aughts, sealing their newly-minted reconciliation with a kiss. 

The couple walked hand-in-hand ahead of the premiere of Affleck's new film "The Last Duel." Lopez wore a daring Georges Hobeika white couture gown with a cascading slit, while Affleck opted for a classic black and white tuxedo with a bow tie. 

Earlier in the day, Affleck and Lopez were pictured snuggled up on a water taxi traveling across the Venice basin toward the Cipriani Hotel.

After rumors milled and paparazzi photos surfaced for months of the two reuniting after her breakup with ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez, Lopez finally confirmed their relationship status on her 52nd birthday in July by sharing a photo on Instagram of her and Affleck lip-locked

Rodriguez and Lopez ended their relationship and ultimately their engagement in April after a public flip-flop the month prior on whether they had broken up or not. Lopez and the former MLB star announced they "realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so," according to a statement shared exclusively with the "Today" show and confirmed to USA TODAY by a person familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly.

Lopez and Affleck first took pop culture by storm after they started dating in the early 2000s. The Hollywood power couple – who starred together in 2003's "Gigli" and 2004's "Jersey Girl" – got engaged in November 2002 (remember her pink engagement ring?). But at the time there wasn't a happily ever after – Lopez and Affleck ended their engagement in 2004.
