However, they crossed paths with a fan who offered them a small, luminous Eiffel Tower just before doing so.The newlyweds dressed chic for their date in all black. Affleck wore a suit with a white button-down shirt slightly opened at the neckline, and Lopez opted for a gown with cutouts that she accessorized with a large pearl necklace.
