Jennifer Lopez Tells the Story Behind the Iconic Versace Dress

Jennifer Lopez is telling the story behind her iconic green Versace dress from the 2000 Grammy Awards, almost 20 years after she first wore it.

The 50-year-old entertainer wore a recreation of the dress at the Versace show during Milan Fashion Week on Friday (September 20) and it totally was another iconic moment in fashion history.

“She basically just was like, ‘It’s 20 years since the jungle green dress. We’re doing a whole collection on it. Would you walk at the end?’ And I was like, ‘Uh, yeah,’” Jennifer told Vogue in a behind-the-scenes video.

Jennifer revealed that she only wore the dress back in 2000 because her stylist at the time wasn’t able to secure any other looks and it was the only dress that worked. The stylist didn’t even want JLo to wear it since other celebs had been seen in the dress before!

“I didn’t think it was all that risque, to be honest. I was more excited that it was the Grammys. I wasn’t even thinking about the dress that much. I was just excited I had something to wear,” she said.
