If you’ve been following the progress of fashion month (and even if you haven’t), you’ve probably heard that Jennifer Lopez quite literally brought down the house when she closed out the Versace Spring/Summer 2020 show in a green jungle-print dress similar to the one she wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards.

In case your memory needs a refresher, the original navel-baring dress she wore at the turn of the millennium created such a buzz on the nascent internet, that then-CEO of Google Eric Schmidt decided to change the way the search engine worked, and thus Google Images was born.

Of course, only someone as fierce and fabulous as JLo could have broken the internet, and she came close to doing so again last month when she strutted her stuff in that jaw-dropping finale. The iconic green and blue jungle print lent a tropical punch to Versace’s latest collection, much as it did to that of the early noughties.
