One Retailer Is Bringing Back THAT J Lo Dress

Few dresses have the honor of being known simply as "that dress", but a certain Versace number worn by Jennifer Lopez in 2000 definitely earned the title. The plunging Versace gown had a built-in bodysuit to ensure it clung to every one of those famous curves and is proof that sometimes it's all about the perfect pairing. Jennifer wasn't even even the first celebrity to wear it — Geri Halliwell gave it its first outing a few weeks before — but she will forever be synonymous with the tropical chiffon down. Until now.

One retailer is bringing the style back, so you can make the look your own, 17 years after it first made headlines. PrettyLittleThing's $53 tropical dress has all the hallmarks of the original — the plunge, the split, the tropical leaf print — and it also has a cutout back for maximum flesh baring. It's sheer and meant to be worn over your favorite bikini or swimsuit, because not all of us get invited to the Grammys. Take a look at the stars who wore the Versace original, then shop the bargain re-creation for your next bout of poolside posing.
