Jennifer Lopez’s Infamous GRAMMY Dress Helped Invent Google Images

Way, way back on Feb. 23, 2000, there was a dress that changed more than the red carpet; it prompted Google to develop Google Images.

The dress in question, a low-cut, green Versace number worn by Jennifer Lopez on the 42nd annual GRAMMY Awards red carpet, and if you didn’t see it on the show’s telecast it was not super simple to hit the Internet the next day and find a photo.
