Jennifer Lopez delivered a major surprise to guests at Milan Fashion Week on Friday (20 September) when she closed the runway at Versace's Spring 2020 show, wearing a replica of that iconic Grammys dress, nonetheless.
Instead of a traditional finale model walk, Versace got J.Lo to end its show with a bang this season. Making her official runway debut, the 50-year-old actress and singer walked the show wearing an updated version of her famous plunging palm print dress from the 2000 Grammy Awards. And surprising to no one, she looked completely amazing.

As the show ended, a voiceover recording asking Google to show pictures of that green Versace dress filled the room. After images filled screens around the venue, Versace’s voice then asked to see the real thing – which then led to J.Lo storming the runway and the fastest standing ovation to ever occur at a fashion show.
Aside from being an epic moment, there was some significance behind Lopez walking the runway. This season marks 20 years since the plunging green palm print first dress first appeared on Versace's runway, ahead of the singer wearing it to the music award ceremony. That red carpet moment was so immense and so searched for that it led to the invention of Google Images (yes, J.Lo really did that). So to make things full circle for Spring 2020, the Italian fashion house paid homage to both the singer and Google.

The show ended with both Lopez and Donatella Versace walking side by side down the runway. Another legendary moment in the books for the dress.
