You know the one: the plunging green and blue print Versace gown held together at the crotch by a sparkly brooch (and the grace of God). Lopez wore the dress at the 2000 Grammy Awards, accompanied by her then-boyfriend, Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs.
We don't think about the dress often (in our post-Gaga world, it would raise nary an eyebrow). But Lopez waxed nostalgic in the February 2013 issue of Harper's Bazaar, dishing about the famous frock.
Where can the dress be found today?
"I have that at home,” she says. “The other day, my housekeeper put it on a mannequin in my spa, where I get my hair and makeup done. She sent me a picture. She was like, ‘You like this dress?’ Um, yeah, but I don’t know if I like it out in the house!"
Her boyfriend, Casper Smart, pipes in: "But it's famous! It's the most famous dress you’ve ever worn.” (Joke that Emme can wear it in a few years and he looks horrified: "Oh, God, no!")
We're going to move right past the "in my spa" part (#jealous) and onto The Dress. Lopez told Access Hollywood last February, "I would wear something like that now... I wouldn't have a problem with it." But we're thinking it belongs back in the day spa on a mannequin given Jennifer's propensity for wardrobe malfunctions these days. If any dress is asking for a nip slip, it's that one.
