Donatella Versace loves a good throwback. Especially one that celebrates the legacy of her brother's namesake label. Back in 2017, the designer brought out a clique of supermodels who had been synonymous with Versace in the '90s, and at today's Spring/Summer 2020 presentation in Milan, she orchestrated yet another epic moment on the catwalk. This time, however, Jennifer Lopez snagged the spotlight.
Nearly 20 years after wearing that iconic Versace jungle dress to the Grammys, J. Lo slipped into an updated version on the runway, giving the fashion flock an unforgettable grand finale that might have just broken the internet yet again. Again, you ask? Well, so the story goes, Google couldn't handle the amount of queries for "Jennifer Lopez" and "Versace dress" after the 2000 Grammy Awards, and so the search engine created Google Images in response.
With multiple nods to Google leading up to and during the show, Versace is certainly proud of its place in tech history. As for J. Lo and the dress? Both are looking better than ever.

Millions of people took to the internet to see Jennifer in the legendary dress, making it one the most popular search queries for Google at the time. The epic red-carpet look, and the excitement it created, inspired the team to create Google Images. This season Versace and Google collaborate to celebrate twenty years of the legendary moment in both fashion and Google history. #VersaceSS20 #MFW
