Sep 21, 2019: Jennifer Lopez just proved that she can still stun in a sexy, green Versace gown.
The singer and actress closed the fashion house’s runway show Friday during Milan Fashion Week by wearing an updated version of the iconic dress she wore for the 2000 Grammy Awards. You know, the one that was such a big deal it prompted the creation of Google Images.
For a refresher on just how long ago that was, Lopez was dating Sean “Diddy” Combs, although he was still called “Puff Daddy,” and Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera were both nominated for Best New Artist (Aguilera pulled out the win). So it’s been a minute.
But Hustlers star J.Lo, who turned 50 in July, looked as amazing as ever, truly, in the new take on her iconic dress, which revealed even more skin than the original.
The audience was enthralled. Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour had “an uncharacteristic grin on her face,” as she joined the crowd in giving the singer a standing ovation, the New York Post’s Page Six reported.
The “On the Floor” singer had been spotted shopping in Italy the day before her runway appearance, and the Versace invite featured a jungle theme, which reportedly caused speculation that Lopez would make an appearance.
Sure enough, J.Lo walked down the runway solo, oozing confidence the entire walk, before returning to the stage with designer Donatella Versace.
While the people watching Lopez in action stood to applaud her and snap photos of the memorable moment, fans everywhere quickly took to Twitter. Actress Katharine McPhee was one of the first to share her excitement.
