On Friday at this year's Milan Fashion Week, Jennifer Lopez wore a reimagined version of the Versace jungle print dress that she wore to the Grammy Awards back in 2000 -- the legendary piece that sparked the creation of Google's Image Search.



Just over two decades ago, the first public version of Google was launched; the platform was simple, limited to only text-based search results. During the Grammy Awards in early 2000, however, Donatella Versace and Jennifer Lopez together presented the world with a legendary dress that changed the history of Google. 

In 2000, a green Versace jungle print dress inspired the creation of Google Images. At the time, J. Lo. in that jungle-printed dress was the most popular search query ever input into the engine. As a result, Google's Search team realized that text results were not what their audience was looking for -- thus, Lopez and Versace are credited by Google as being the inspiration behind the creation of Image Search, which launched in July of 2001.

To celebrate this event, Google teamed up with Jennifer Lopez and Donatella Versace to revive the green dress and its iconic print. Not only was the dress redesigned and modeled by the star, but also Google Tilt Brush was used to digitally decorate the venue with designs inspired by the earthy pattern.
