They say that fashion always comes back around – which is fine as long as we don’t revisit the trouser version of the “skort” in our lifetime or in fact, ever.
|Never. Okay. This theory was proven once again at Milan’s Fashion Week this September as Versarce’s legendary Jungle dress arose from the ashes like some fabric Franken-Tarzan and was “reimagined” (they removed the sleeves) and put it back on its most famous model, J.Lo. Now, we need to point out two very important points here: |
– Ginger Spice actually wore it first and wore it well.
– The dress in fact “broke” the internet and from its remains, Google was reborn complete with a snazzy new tool – image search.
“Wait, what?” I hear you cry…You read that correctly. The jungle dress is directly responsible for the creation of Google image search. Google even wrote an article about it here. “Back in 2000, search results were still just a list of blue links. When the Search team realized they weren’t able to directly surface the results that people wanted—a picture of Jennifer in the dress—they were inspired to create Google Images.”
This is why Google teamed up with design house Versace to celebrate this iconic fashion and technical cultural moment at Versace’s show with J.Lo’s epic entrance. And again, the internet was broken as social media went wild. So there you have it, unlike the skort, some fashion moments are just as epic the second time around as they are the first.
