The 49-year-old star has revealed she was the iconic green, semi-sheer, navel-grazing Versace dress that she wore at the Grammy Awards in 2000 in a unique way — by keeping it on a mannequin in her closet.

“I wouldn’t rock back on a red carpet. But life in my house. It is on a small mannequin in my house,” the mother of the twins told USA Today in an interview published Dec 12.


When questioned by the reporter as the immortal dress was in her room,” J. Lo quickly replied that such a placement would be “scary and weird.”

Jennifer Lopez wore this unforgettable green Versace dress to the 2000 Grammy Awards. Her wardrobe choice is still one of the most talked about awards show in the history.

Instead, she found a perfect forever home for the piece in a more logical place — “in a closet… on a dress form.”

Earlier this month, Versace’s first pre-fall fashion show in New York City, designers of the Italian fashion house made waves when they sent the notoriously plunging dress down the runway in a new heart print pattern inspired by the late founder Gianni Versace.

The look was even modelled by Amber Valletta, who first wore the dress on the catwalk in 1999.


Lopez, meanwhile, says its edition of the original clothing is best kept in retirement.

“I’ve got the whole Versace thing again. I think I’m done with that,” she told the newspaper USA Today — though she is not against exploring options for future use of upper case letters.

“Sergey [Brin] is to send me my check,” the star joked of the old joke that her barely-there Versace look led to the creation of Google Images. “Stand up.”
