Jennifer Lopez made a grand entry on the runway wearing a recreation of the iconic green gown at the Versace Spring/Summer 2020 presentation during Milan Fashion Week.
The 50-year-old singer recreated her most famous palm leaf dress from the 2000 Grammy Awards and it has been nearly 20 years since Lopez wore Versace’s original green gown.
She said: ”Usually if you come to a fitting of mine, there are tons of dresses and tons of shoes,”
”There’s always so many choices. But this day we only really had a choice between two dresses. One was kind of like a white dress and the other was the Versace jungle-print dress…I put on the green dress and come out and Benny [Medina] goes, ‘That’s it. That’s it. Don’t even talk about it. That’s the dress.”
Jennifer was the center of attention and the audience gave her a standing ovation when she walked on the runway. She styled her tresses into the same blow-dried sweptback hairdo and showed her incredible physique in the fashion show.
She recently reminisced about her famous jungle gown in a video posted to her Youtube Channel, saying: ”All of a sudden you start hearing a little murmur. I’m thinking, it’s the Grammys.”
”It has to be somebody famous behind us. It was a frenzy. The flashes started going in a way that it’s not usually. There was an extra kinetic energy there. I was like what the he*l is going on? I had no idea it was about this dress.”
”Me totally unsuspecting, walk out and as I walk out my dress, the wind hits it. It blows open slightly, so now I am like bare here and bare here! All of a sudden, again, a slow murmur and everybody starts clapping.”
”We get an ovation for just standing there! In that moment, that dress became something that people still reference.”
