Some men stop trying in the style department once they’re in a committed relationship, but the exact opposite is true for Alex Rodriguez who has gotten one million percent (that’s a scientifically reported number) more stylish since dating triple threat Jennifer Lopez. It’s called the J.Lo effect and while we thought it was running at max capacity, apparently we were wrong. Say hello to J-Rod.
Jennifer Lopez recalls the early days of dating Alex Rodriguez in V.F.’s December cover story, but it was one text from @ARod that really took their first date to the next level: “You look sexy AF.” At the link in bio, see more photos from the couple’s intimate shoot with @MarioTestino.

The famous pair may not have made it to the one year mark yet, but they did cross another very important relationship goal off their list: sharing their first magazine cover together. Shot by Mario Testino, the two wildly successful forty-somethings posed in fancy robes, sleek evening wear, rich guy turtlenecks (him) and sexy track suits (her). It’s everything we’d expect from 2017’s most powerful power couple.

It’s the latest style home run (sorry) from A-Rod, who’s nailed almost every outfit in the last six months, from his Met Gala tuxedo to his not-so-casual casual summer basics. Under Lopez’s influence the baseball superstar has done the two things every man should do: he’s finally figured out what clothes fit his body and he’s found his style voice (that would be a mix of off-duty James Bond and CEO.)
As it turns out, Rodriguez is more style-inclined than he’s previously let on (well, more than we thought about a guy who owns $16,000 boots). In the exclusive video interview shot on the set of their Vanity Fair photo-shoot A-Rod admits he has a secret talent: taking his two daughters shopping. He also admits that yes, those blond tips from back in the day were regrettable.
One thing’s for sure, you won’t see Rodriguez making that kind of grooming or style mistake as long as J.Lo is around.
