Jennifer Lopez sparkles in the first post-wedding show at the All-Star Italian UNICEF charity benefit

Jennifer Lopez brought some 1970s glamor to LuisaViaRoma for UNICEF charity event at a 14th-century convent in Capri, Italy on Saturday (July 30) night as she slipped into something sparkly for her first show since married to Ben Affleck last month. “We’re disco tonight. You know what this reminds me of? This reminds me of when I was a little girl in the Bronx,” the singer told the A-list crowd as he rocked a zebra-print bodysuit with matching cape, according to People.

“My mom used to watch the award shows, the big galas — it’s like a big gala tonight,” she explained. “Remember when they used to show them on TV? And they always had a great singer like you remember Donna Summer? Yeah? Chaka Khan? And the amazing Miss Diana Ross. They used to come out with their big hair and their beautiful dresses.”

Recalling the “glittery onesie” she used to parade around as a child with “disco dance diva” dreams, Lopez asked the audience if it was okay for her to live those Saturday night fever fantasies with a set that included “If You Had My Love,” “Waiting for Tonight,” “On the Floor,” “Dance Again” and covers of Chaka Khan’s “I’m Every Woman,” Gloria Gaynor’s disco classic “I Will “. Survive” and Gloria Estefan’s cover of the disco classic “Turn the Beat Around”.

At one point, she quickly changed from the custom Roberto Cavalli animal print to a glittery nude bodysuit at the event hosted by Jamie Foxx and attended by other celebrities including Leonardo DiCaprio, Casey Affleck, Spike Lee, Haim, Naomi Campbell, Jared Leto, Ansel Elgort and Vanessa Hudgens, among others.

According to E! was Lopez’s stage outfit after the show auctioned off for charity at the gathering to raise money for UNICEF’s work in Syria and Ukraine, which also featured sets from Diplo, Sofia Carson and DJ Cruz.

Lopez and Affleck have been spotted in Paris after the couple got hitched in Las Vegas last month. Last week, Lopez celebrated her 53rd birthday by dropping JLo Body, an extension of her JLo Beauty skincare line, with posing naked on a number of billboards.
