Jennifer Lopez Wears “The Dress” at Versace’s Spring 2020 Show 20 Years After Owning the Grammys Red Carpet

It’s a blast from the past for Jennifer Lopez… 

The 50-year-old Puerto Rican superstar and Hustlers actress closed out Versace‘s Spring 2020 show in a re-worked version of the revealing, bright green silk chiffon dress she donned at the Grammy Awards 20 years ago.

Jennifer Lopez - Versace Dress

The dress quickly became a pop-culture phenomenon, causing complications for Google after too many people searched the combination of J-Lo and Versace at the time of the awards.

The dress even led to the creation of Google Images after it became clear that users were interested in finding photos on the internet, rather than simply text.

Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt confirmed in a 2015 essay that the need for photo aggregation “first became apparent after the 2000 Grammy Awards, where Jennifer Lopez wore a green dress that, well, caught the world’s attention.”

“At the time,” Schmidt continued, “it was the most popular search query we had ever seen. But we had no surefire way of getting users exactly what they wanted: J.Lo wearing that dress. Google Image Search was born.”

And, according to a video of the runway walk that Lopez posted on Instagram, the significance of the dress clearly wasn’t lost on the attendees. Almost every audience member can be seen holding up their phones to capture the nostalgic moment, while audible cheers can be heard.

Donatella Versace, at the helm of the Italian fashion brand, told Vogue that the two had hatched the plan when they met at this year’s Met Ball. “The world stopped, everyone wanted to look at that dress… I’m proud we inspired Google Images,” Versace said. “You know when I do something, I really do it.”

Anitta Releases Controversial Video for New Single “Vai Malandra”

Anitta is returning to her roots…

The 24-year-old Brazilian singer, songwriter has gone back to her baile funk roots with the song “Vai Malandra” and a video shot in Rio de Janeiro’s Vidigal favela.

Anitta

The video follows her Latin chart hit “Downtown” with J Balvin (currently at No. 28 on the Hot Latin Songs chart), and her first English-language single with Poo Bear and “Is That For Me” with Swedish dance producer Alesso.

The video, which has garnered nearly 37 million YouTube views since its debut Monday (December 18), has sparked commentary in Brazil over everything from Anitta’s flaunting favela fashion in a bikini made from insulation tape, to the racial authenticity of the singer’s braids, to whether the video exploits or celebrates women.

Rio de Janeiro’s Secretary of Health even Tweeted a warning (in the form of a rhyme) of the danger that the video, with scenes on a rooftop covered with stagnant water, is promoting a message that could lead to the spread of mosquito-carrying diseases.

An immediate conversation starter was the fact that the video was directed by Terry Richardson, the fashion photographer recently banned by VogueElle and other magazines in the wake of sexual assault allegations.

“…When we are experiencing such an important moment in which women are raising their voices against sexist abuse, harassment and violence in the cultural industry … the least we should do is guarantee the ostracizing of the abusers,” cultural anthropologist Juliana Borges wrote in an article about the video in the on-line edition of Brazil’s Claudia magazine, referring to the choice of Richardson as director.

The video was shot in August, before major media companies dropped Richardson (although allegations about the photographer’s behavior with models had come to light over the past decade.) In a statement to the press, Anitta said that she had consulted with lawyers after learning about the charges.

A close up of Anitta’s butt jiggling in red shorts sets the esthetic tone for the clip for “Vai Malandra,” which translates as “Go Bad Girl” (Brazilian media have noted that the Anitta forbade the editing out of her cellulite). The video features a roof party full of tanga-clad women, as well as some equally bared and oiled male models and local non-actors with peroxide crew cuts.

“The exaggerated sexualization [in the video] puts Anitta up several notches on the vulgarity scale of Nicki Minaj,” wrote one critic in the national newspaper O Globo, who allowed that while lyrics of the song like “playing with the bum-bum” were fun, they didn’t jibe with Anitta’s image as “a feminist icon.”

But in a deep analysis of the video on the website cartacapital.com, the writer Victoria Damasceno countered that “Anitta also sexualizes the male body… subversively, the singer uses female stereotypes placed as negatives to revindicate the power over the body itself.”

In a column posted by the Brazilian edition of the magazine Marie Claire, writer Stephanie Ribeiro “reflected on the accusations of cultural appropriation” that have stirred social media since the video’s release. She accuses Anitta, who was born into an interracial family and grew up in the inner city, of “using blackness when it is convenient.”

The critic calls Anitta’s appearance with long brunette braids and tanned skin in the video evidence that she is “fantasizing” about being black. “I feel bad when I see how our black esthetic continues to be a “fantasy,” writes Ribeiro.

But for Borges, writing in Claudia, Anitta’s video presents favelas and marginal neighborhoods in a credible way and gives voice and power to the women represented.

The singer, it seems, would agree.

“I was able to have the opportunity to show what my origins were in this clip,” she told O Globo in an interview. “A little bit of what I experienced where I lived. Sunning on the roof, baile funk, moto-taxis and joy. The clip is uplifting, happy, full of life. Funk is part of who I am. I am really happy with the result [of the video] and the music.”
