Resident Evil Village fan took to Twitter to post his fan art of Lady Dimitrescu wearing a dress supported Jennifer Lopez’s 2021 Met Gala look.
As an annual fundraising event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, The Met Gala attracts celebrities donning breathtaking costumes and even a couple of odd looks. This year’s benefit happened Monday, September 13th, and attendees wore costumes that showed their combat this year’s theme of “American Independence.” Lady Dimitrescu from Resident Evil Village received VIP treatment in fan art depicting her during a stunning Met Gala dress.
As the most up-to-date installment within the Resident Evil franchise, Capcom’s Resident Evil Village has players control Ethan Winters as he tries to seek out his missing daughter. Along the way, he encounters mutant creatures living in a village, one among the most antagonists being Lady Alcina Dimitrescu. Portrayed as a tall, full-figured vampire-like aristocratic woman, Lady Dimitrescu has been the topic of fan art and cosplays since her introduction in previews and demos for the sport in late 2020.
Resident Evil Village fan BossLogic took to Twitter to post his fan art of Lady Dimitrescu wearing a revealing modern-day dress. BossLogic captioned his art as “Jenny from the Village,” a play on what’s arguably Jennifer Lopez’s most famous song, “Jenny from the Block.” As evidenced by JLo’s 2021 Met Gala look, BossLogic made this reference because he modeled Lady Dimitrescu’s dress after Lopez wore that night. BossLogic’s Lady Dimitrescu is wearing an equivalent dress, leather choker, silver necklace, and earrings as Lopez wore during the Met Gala. Though JLo wears a brown hat almost like the character’s character in Resident Evil Village, BossLogic’s Lady Dimitrescu’s wears her signature large, tilted brown hat and sports her long, sharp claws.

The aristocratic air given off by the Ralph Lauren-designed 2021 Met Gala outfit and its matching brown hat was what probably inspired BossLogic to base his creation on Jennifer Lopez’s company. The artist tagged Lopez in his fan art on Twitter, but the star has yet to reply. This is not the sole Met Gala-inspired fan art to return out of this year’s fundraising event. Lupita Nyong’o’s Met Gala costume also inspired BossLogic to make his version of the Marvel mutant Storm.
With the conclusion of this year’s Met Gala, fans are having a field day with their artistic creations. As players of Resident Evil Village await updates on the recently-announced DLC, they will enjoy the fan art. Perhaps JLo will even give her a seal of approval.
