It was February 23rd 2000 when Jennifer Lopez enchanted the audience at the Grammy Awards ceremony wrapped in a splendid transparent chiffon Versace dress, decorated with a tropical motif of green palm trees. A dress soon destined to write the history of costume and to definitively declare Donatella's success at the helm of Medusa: the day after the ceremony, in fact, the photo of J. Lo in Versace was downloaded more than 600,000 times from the Grammy site and Google was forced to launch the Google Images tool to cope with the incredible number of searches that were multiplying on the internet. The public, moreover, craved and claimed those photos, that dress. Twenty years later, history repeats itself but this time it is already a legend: all thanks to a Donatella more splendid than ever, a tireless priestess of a sensuality that envelops, enchants and conquers. The colors are intense, the saturation is sky high and turns from green, to fuchsia, to atomic orange, while black sculpts and defines the most sartorial silhouettes. However, the jungle print is the undisputed protagonist of the show, appropriately reworked and renewed but always incredibly eye-catching, especially when it becomes three-dimensional and blossoms precious on metal mesh, the iconic Versace stylistic word since the time of Gianni. And then the astonishing finale, that "show me the real jungle dress" that resonates inside the Palazzo delle Scintille and Jennifer Lopez that appears and walks among thousands of stadium flashes and screams, with that dress that 20 years later remains still a cult object. A roar of seduction and glamor that is already a legend.
