Guess Where JLo Keeps Her Scandalous Versace Dress?
Remember that wacky Versace number JLo wore to the Grammys in 2000? We just found out where she keeps it. Plus, get a lookalike ensemble for way less!
Is anyone else endlessly fascinated by what stars decide to do with their clothing when they’ve reached the point where they can no longer wear the items? From Gwyneth Paltrow’s pack rat tendencies to Taylor Swift’s first world wardrobe problems, we here at BettyConfidential just can’t get enough of it.
This is why we were (somewhat bizarrely, we’ll admit) thrilled to find out exactly what happened to that scandalous Versace number Jennifer Lopez wore to the Grammy Awards in 2000. Y’know: That green palm-print thing with a V-neck so deep it plunged down to her naval. Yeah. That one.
In an interview for the February 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, JLo revealed where she’s currently got the dress stashed away. “I have that at home,” she says. But there’s more. She continued, “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!”
Unpack that little chunk of knowledge for a minute: First, she’s got a spa in her house. This is perhaps unsurprising, as we’re talking about JLo here, but still: She’s got a SPA IN HER HOUSE. Second, presumably up ‘til this point, the Versace was just hanging out in a closet somewhere. It’s sort of nice to know that she doesn’t have some big, crazy storage system like Gwyneth Paltrow does, isn’t it? And third, we TOTALLY agree with you not wanting the dress out in the house, JLo. Judging from how horrified Jennifer’s boyfriend, Casper Smart, apparently looked during the interview when it was suggested that the singer’s daughter, Emme, could wear it in a few years, and you’ll get why.
Anyhoo, another pressing fashion mystery solved. Love the look, but wish it were a little more wearable? Try this JLo-inspired outfit on for size:
