Jennifer Lopez stunned the fashion elite in Milan, Italy on Friday by closing the Versace spring-summer 2020 runway show in a dress that resembled the one that turned her into a style icon 20 years ago.
Jaws dropped as the actress and singer hit the catwalk in what looked like the revealing tropical green gown that turned heads at the 2000 Grammy Awards, when her outfit became a bigger talking point than her romance with then-boyfriend Diddy.
Donatella Versace redesigned the outfit for her friend’s big entrance, which came immediately after photos of the star in the iconic creation were flashed onto giant screens above the runway.
Versace ended the slide show by stating, “Now show me the real jungle dress”, as the Hustlers star strutted her stuff.
As the fashion crowd went wild, Lopez sought out Donatella and the pair walked the runway together, smiling and laughing.
J.Lo recently recalled the impact of ‘that dress’ on her YouTube channel, revealing the look created “an extra kinetic energy” on the red carpet.
“It just goes to show you the power of fashion and the power of those types of moments,” she said. “I know people try to make it frivolous at times, but what those things do is they give people an inspiration. It puts a beautiful moment out into the world. One dress can change the trajectory of how people dress for the next 10 years. It’s a crazy impact that fashion can have.”
