Green Versace dress of Jennifer Lopez

American recording artist and actress Jennifer Lopez wore an exotic green Versace silk chiffon dress to the 42nd Grammy Awards ceremony on February 23, 2000. The sheer fabric was printed with a tropical leaf and bamboo pattern, and cut with a very low neckline extending well past Lopez's navel, while the waist of the dress was studded with citrines.

This garment instantly received significant global media coverage, and has been cited along with Elizabeth Hurley's black Versace dress as one of the most high-profile dresses that made the designer Versace a household name. In addition, this dress was described as a turning point in designer Donatella Versace's career after the death of her brother Gianni Versace. It was chosen by the fashion journalist Lisa Armstrong to represent 2000 in the Fashion Museum of Bath's Dress of the Year collection, at which point it was described as a key example of the close relationship between fashions, celebrities and publicity. Another duplicate is displayed at The Grammy Museum while as of 2015, Lopez still owns the original gown. In 2015, fifteen years since Lopez first wore it, the dress is still inextricably associated with her and Versace.

Designed by Donatella Versace, it 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 fashion tape.

At the 72nd Academy Awards in March 2000, South Park co-creator Trey Parker wore an imitation of the dress.

The Fashion Museum, Bath asked Lisa Armstrong of the Times to choose an outfit to represent 2000 for their "Dress of the Year" collection. While Armstrong initially considered choosing Hussein Chalayan's table dress, she eventually decided on the Versace dress, arguing that due to the media attention it had received through being worn by Lopez, Geri Halliwell, and others, the gown represented "some kind of high water mark in the current symbiosis between fashion and celebrity." Versace subsequently donated a duplicate of the dress to the Museum. Another duplicate is displayed at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. As of 2015, the original dress remains in Lopez's possession.

On October 15, 2002 at the Radio City Music Hall in New York, Jennifer Lopez was awarded the VH1 Vogue Fashion Award as the most influential star of the year. The award was presented by Versace herself.

In a poll by Debenhams, published in the Daily Telegraph in 2008, the dress was voted the fifth most iconic dress of all time.

In January 2015, Google's president Eric Schmidt cited the massive attention to this dress as a motivation for the creation of Google Images search. In 2000, Google Search results were limited to simple pages of text with links, but the developers worked on developing this further, realising that an image search was required to answer "the most popular search query" they had seen to date: Jennifer Lopez's green dress. As a result of this, Google Images search was born.
