Jennifer Lopez revives dress behind the invention of Google Images
US singer Jennifer Lopez has revived her iconic green Versace dress that led to the invention of Google Images.
Lopez, 50, first wore the gown to the Grammy Awards in February 2000.
Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt later revealed there were so many searches for photos of the dress afterwards, it inspired them to create Google Images.
Footage of Lopez modelling the modern version of the dress at Versace’s S/S 2020 show has been viewed more than two million times on social media.
Friday’s show, at Milan Fashion Week, paid homage to both the original dress, and to Lopez.
Vogue reports that the final few models in the show walked the catwalk to Lopez’s 2001 song Love Don’t Cost a Thing, before a montage of Google Image searches for the original Grammy’s dress was projected on to the walls.
As if talking to an Alexa assistant, a voice announced: “OK, Google. Now show me the real dress.”
The pop star and Hollywood actress then walked out to cheers from the crowd.
