The FROW went crazy
When thinking back on iconic fashion moments, it’s easy to recall that Jennifer Lopez green, palm-print, plunge-necked, silk-chiffon Versace gown at the 2000 Grammy Awards.
And cognisant of the current nostalgia for early noughties couture, Versace chose to end its SS20 runway show during Milan Fashion Week with a dramatic bang.
As the models finished their loop of the Piazza Sei Febrraio venue, a voiceover bellowed out across the star-studded runway crowd. The voice on the tannoy asked Google to call up pictures of J.Lo’s iconic Grammys look (the look after which Google image search was invented), before Lopez herself appeared in an updated version of the plunging gown, strutting purposefully down the catwalk to rapturous applause.
After the 50-year-old actress and singer had walked the full length of the catwalk, her skirt billowing magically behind her, she was joined by Italian fashion designer and the current chief creative officer of Versace, Donatella Versace.
