Jennifer Lopez said she was excited to see the world changing and women speaking up about harassment, as she walked the red carpet at the star-studded Time 100 gala.

The singer and actress, mother of 10-year-old twins Max and Emme, stepped out at the event in New York alongside her boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez.

Looking stunning in a plunging, sparkling gold gown, Lopez told Time: “Watching everything that’s happening with women, finding their voices, standing up for themselves, all of the groundwork that was laid last year and into this year … the world is changing.

“And it’s changing for our daughters and we are super-excited about that, to see where all of this goes.”

Millie Bobby Brown, the youngest person to make the annual Time Top 100 list, also attended.

The 14-year-old Stranger Things star looked elegant in a white ball gown covered in flowers, with her hair pulled back.

She later posted some of the red carpet photographs on Twitter, saying: “I sincerely thank you.”
