We're here for it
Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde
Jennifer Lopez has been responsible for many memorable red carpet moments thanks to her daring outfit choices, but it’s fair to say that her Grammy Awards dress from 2000 is truly iconic. The sheer green Versace number with its jungle print, plunging neckline and waist-high frontal slit was infamous, instantly causing a stir. Way before the Kardashians, it was Jennifer Lopez’s Grammys dress that broke the internet, and we now have Google image search thanks to that very little green number. Yes, really.
Google’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, admitted in an interview: ‘It was the most popular search query we had ever seen. But we had no sure-fire way of getting users exactly what they wanted: J. Lo wearing that dress. Google Image Search was born.’
And it seems that the dress has lasted the test of time, with a near-identical copy being made available online to anyone who is brave enough to clip themselves into a see-through body-sized scarf. If you’re feeling like reliving the noughties in the most J. Lo way possible, PrettyLittleThing are selling a like-for-like version of the Versace number – and even better, it’s only £30.
The dress incorporates the famously low V, a similarly gorgeous tropical print and a high front slit – although this one will keep your from baring your underwear and going full noughties J. Lo.
Whether you’re off on a last-minute getaway and looking for a fancy cover-up while you sip cocktails at the swimming pool, or you need a dress to wear while you sing If You Had My Love in the mirror to, then you absolutely need it.
Who doesn’t want to channel J. Lo on a day to day basis?
And at £30 it’s an absolute bargain – so it basically don’t cost a thing (sorry not sorry).
