Heads were turned on several occasions, and not just because of the volume of A-list attendees, but because power couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez made their red carpet debut as a couple at the annual event.

After weeks of being photographed together on yachts and various holidays, the old flames finally made their relationship official to the public on Friday night at the screening of “The Last Duel,” a historical drama directed by Ridley Scott, co-written by and starring Affleck.

There was plenty of fashion excellence elsewhere, too, though, with several bespoke designs making their way onto the Italian red carpet.
