J.Lo closed Versace in THAT green dress

The Hustlers actress just closed Versace in a version of her iconic dress, almost 20 years after its red carpet debut

Well, that was a fashion show for the history books. Two decades on from the moment on the Grammy’s red carpet where J.Lo showed up wearing that green Versace dress, the singer came out to give it another go in the spotlight at Versace’s SS20 showing in Milan. 

Before appearing on the runway to do a lap to an overwhelming amount of screaming and applause, the Hustlers actress was introduced by her hit song, “Love Don’t Cost a Thing”. The singer’s voice then asked Google (as part of what was maybe the best Google sponcon ever?) show me images of the Versace jungle dress which were then projected onto screens decorating the runway. A clear nod to the dawn of Google Images, which was launched due to the amount of people searching for the dress on the site after its red carpet debut. She then closed the show wearing the infamous outfit, only slightly updated into a sleeveless look decorated with green paillettes.

But before this there was a collection of clothes to take in, too. The show was kicked off with fitted black dresses paired with gladiator sandal adorned with signature Versace detailing, in the form of gold buttons and belts. 

With the likes of new gen supers including Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid modelling, pieces were lined with the Versace print which J-Lo wore 20 years ago. This motif also featured across a range of dresses, coats, and skirts. With oversized shoulder pads, large glasses, and super short hemlines, this season Donatella Versace presented a killer collection. But we think we can all agree, even 20 years on, that green dress will always be the star of the show.
