Jennifer Lopez is breaking the internet in a green, jungle-print Versace gown, again.
Nearly 20 years after she wore THAT gown to the 2000 Grammy Awards – solidifying her status as a fashion icon and the subsequent creation of Google Images – Lopez hit the runway at Milan Fashion Week Friday in a similar version of the first viral dress ever.
“So this just happened,” Lopez captioned a video of her fierce catwalk at Versace’s 2020 Spring collection. She added the hashtags #stillgoingstrong and #20yearanniversary.
The “Hustler” star, 50, closed out the Versace show to much applause in a version of the infamous dress that managed to show more skin than the daring original. It featured short sleeves and cut outs on the sides to showcase Lopez’s toned abs.

After ripping the runway solo, Lopez joined Donatella Versace for another lap around the star-studded catwalk. “It’s been fabulous to walk with you tonight,” Verace wrote on Instagram.
Lopez called her iconic green Versace gown her “biggest fashion moment ever,” revealing on her YouTube channel in April that the look was pulled together at the last minute and almost didn’t happen.
“Usually if you come to a fitting of mine there’s, like, tons of dresses,” she said in the video. “But this day, the day of the Grammys, we really had a choice between two dresses. One was kind of like a white dress and the other was the Versace jungle-print dress.”
She went with the green gown, against her stylist’s advice, and made fashion history.
The dress was such a phenomenon, that Versace has revisited is more than once. Model Amber Valletta, who originally wore the green gown on the catwalk in 1999, walked the runway in a new version at Donatella Versace’s New York fashion show last year.
In 2014, Lopez wore a lookalike outfit onstage for an encore at her homecoming concert in the Bronx.

“I did the whole Versace thing again. I think I’m done with that,” she told USA TODAY in December. “I wouldn’t rock it again on a red carpet. But it lives in my house. It’s on a little mannequin in my house.”
But, it appears the star made an exception for the  Friday runway.
