The iconic Versace Dress

Jennifer Lopez was first seen wearing the green Versace dress at the 2000 Grammys, which inspired the creations of Google Images too. The second time she wore the dress, was the close-out of Versace’s fashion show. The fashion show took place last fall. That was the moment when the internet went wild over her walk in the dress.

When she was asked about her outfit by Vanity Fair, she replied:

“That’s a good question, baby,” The first time I wore it, I actually didn’t have another dress. Usually, I have choices. It was a last-minute thing that caused a sensation that was unexpected. The second time was very planned-out. It started at the Met ball; Donatella said, ‘You know, this year is the 20th anniversary of the jungle dress,’ and I said no, I didn’t. And she goes, ‘I think I’m going to do a whole show about it. Would you come?’ And I said, ‘Of course. Just call me.’

She continued,” You know, it’s all timing—schedules and stuff. And then she wound up calling and said, ‘I want you to walk at the end, and I want you to come out in the dress.’ ‘The same dress?’ ‘The same dress. We’ll make a new one for you.’ The second time I wore it and walked out there, it was such an empowering thing. Twenty years had gone by, and I think for women, knowing you can put on a dress 20 years later—it resonated. It was like, ‘Yes, you know, life is not over at 20!’”

Jennifer Lopez also told about her relationship with Donatella Versace and said,

“I met her when Gianni  (her brother) died. So we’ve had a long journey, and to see her slowly realized from that moment to this moment. There was so much in the moment that you can’t even begin to kind of emotionally understand—for her, from me, for her life, for my life. And I think people felt that.”
