“At the time of the Grammys in 2000, I was obviously nominated for a grammy and I was getting ready to go. I was also working on a movie called, The Wedding Planner ,” she said.

She asked her stylist to come back with a few more choices — and it’s a good thing she did, otherwise, we may have never gotten to see J-Lo in the famous green Versace gown.

“She came with like, three dresses,” she said.

“It was like, a white one and a green one, and then one of the ones we had tried in the trailer which was a no ,” she explained.

Although everybody seemed to agree on the dress, that’s when J-Lo’s stylist stepped in, advising her to pick another dress instead.

“Then Andrea, my stylist, was like, ‘no, you can’t wear that one!'”

“I was like, ‘why did you bring it then?'” she went on.

“She was like, ‘no, it’s just, somebody else has worn it. Actually, Donatella herself has worn it, one of the Spice Girls have worn it, Sanda Bullock has worn it in another color.'”

But Jennifer didn’t care. She said: “‘This is what we’re gonna wear. This is it.'”

“I really didn’t think about it — I didn’t think it was all that risqué, to be honest. I was more excited that it was the Grammys, I wasn’t even really thinking about the dress that much, I was just glad I had something to wear.”

She revealed that fans were blown away by the dress, scrambling to find a photo of it if they were unable to catch a glimpse on TV.

“Google Images didn’t exist at the time,” she said. “People were searching, trying to find a picture of the dress.”

“So, they created Google Images,” she said. “Donatella and I talk about it sometimes, and we just usually mention it was ‘the dress.'”

In 2015, the former Google CEO, Eric Schmidt, called the dress “the most popular search query we had ever seen.”

“But we had no surefire way of getting users exactly what they wanted: J­Lo wearing that dress. Google Image Search was born,” he continued.
