Versace Just Designed a Sneaker Inspired by J Lo's Most Iconic Dress
Remember when Jennifer Lopez shut down the red carpet at the 2000 Grammy Awards wearing that stunning green Versace dress? LOL, of course you do, and so does Versace, because the Italian fashion house just teamed up with Concepts to design a sneaker modeled after it. The Concepts x Versace Chain Reaction Sneaker, as it's called, was released in honor of J Lo's 50th birthday and the upcoming 20th anniversary of her hitting the red carpet in the dress.
The long-sleeved chiffon gown quickly made headlines 20 years ago because of its design, with a dangerously low v-cut and a leafy green and blue print. Iconic as it is, J Lo explained in a recent video on her YouTube channel that she almost didn't wear the dress that night, stating that Andrea Lieberman, her stylist at the time, was against it because the gown had already been worn on a red carpet before. But J Lo, in desperate need of a dress at the last minute, ignored Lieberman's advice and took the risk anyway — and almost two decades later, we're still glad that she did.
The Chain Reaction sneaker is made with the same jungle print that was featured on the dress, and it's now available for a limited time at $1,075 in men's and women's sizing. Interested customers can head over to Concepts's official website to purchase the shoes online, or in-store at the brand's locations in Boston and New York City.
