The Grammy Awards 2000 was a fun and memorable night as there were performances from Will Smith, Britney Spears and several other popular artists. But all the attention was on Jennifer Lopez wearing that green Versace dress nobody can't ever forget.
held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California
on February 23, 2000.
Carlos Santana was the main winner with 8 awards
and Christina Aguilera as Best New Artist, etc.
There were amazing performances by top artists
as usual on the show,
but the highlight of the evening
was when Jennifer Lopez came out
with David Duchovny on the stage
to present the award for Best R&B album
and said to the audience at that very moment
"This is the first time in five or six years
that I'm sure that nobody is looking at me"
and generating laughter from the audience
and Jennifer Lopez as well.
What was that Versace dress in the first place?
it was designed by Donatella Versace,
and has been described as "jungle green",
"sea green" or "tropical" green,
a green dress with touches of blue to give an exotic appearance.
It is a see-through silk chiffon dress
with a tropical leaf and bamboo pattern,
with a citrine-studded crotch.
The dress "had a low-cut neck
that extended several inches below her navel,
where it was loosely fastened with a sparkly brooch
and then opened out again,"
exposing her midriff
and then cut along the front of the legs
like a bath robe.
The dress then drooped behind her on the floor,
open at the back.
Under the suit,
Lopez wore a pair of nude-tone shorts
and only afterwards it was revealed
that Lopez was able to keep the dress on
using double-sided tape.
