Pop star Jennifer Lopez strutted down the Milan catwalk, closing the Versace show in a recreation of the plunging jungle-themed gown she wore to the Grammy Awards nearly 20 years ago.

The 50-year-old joined models including sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid in the Milan Fashion Week presentation, walking the runway after a screen showed a Google voice search for the dress producing photos of Lopez in the frock at the 2000 Grammys.

Lopez modelled a newer version of the green dress, which at the time made headlines for its revealing low-cut front and skirt slits. She was later joined by designer Donatella Versace on the catwalk.

This time Lopez's dress did not have sleeves but had more decorations and side slits.

In April, Lopez said wearing the original dress was her "biggest fashion moment ever", and that she had learnt years later how so many people looking for it online helped inspire the creation of Google Images.

"So many people went searching for this," she said.

The show marked the 20th anniversary of Versace's jungle print, with models wearing tops, skirts, suits and dresses in vivid green hues.
