February 23rd 2000 ~ Jennifer Lopez wears iconic green Versace dress.
On this day, J.Lo wore the iconic green Versace dress to the 42nd Grammy Awards ceremony.
The sheer silk chiffon was printed with a tropical leaf and bamboo pattern, and cut with a very low neckline extending well past Lopez's navel, while the waist of the dress was studded with citrines.
The dress instantly received significant global media coverage, and has been cited along with Elizabeth Hurley's black Versace dress as one of the most high-profile dresses that made the designer Versace a household name. In addition, this dress was described as a turning point in designer Donatella Versace's career after the death of her brother Gianni Versace. It was chosen by the fashion journalist Lisa Armstrong to represent 2000 in the Fashion Museum of Bath's Dress of the Year collection, at which point it was described as a key example of the close relationship between fashions, celebrities and publicity. Another duplicate is displayed at The Grammy Museum while Lopez still owns the original gown.
