Jennifer Lopez Dazzles on the Cover of W Magazine, Talks Infamous Green Versace Dress [Photos]


Jennifer Lopez channels old Hollywood as she poses for W magazine’s new August 2013 cover, captured by Mario Sorrenti.

While she looks great in that green feather dress, people are still talking about her iconic green Versace dress from the 2000 Grammy awards.

J.Lo tells W:

“We had looked at a few dresses, and nothing was right,” Lopez recalled. “My stylist said, there’s this one dress, but other people have worn it. I tried on the Versace and decided to wear it anyway. But I was still surprised by the reaction: When I came onstage with David Duchovny, who was the biggest star in the world then, he said to the audience, ‘Nobody is looking at me,'” Lopez said, laughing. “This loud sound started from the back of the room — it was kind of like a roar, over me in the dress. When I went to my seat, I said, ‘What’s the big deal?!’ Puffy and Benny were waiting, and they said, ‘You have to take pictures in that dress.'”
