J. Lo's New Video: This Is How That Plunging Versace Happened

Who can forget Jennifer Lopez's iconic Grammys dress? Not stylists Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, who channeled the famed outfit in the singer's new "I Luh Ya Papi" music video.

It's hard to think about the Grammys without remembering Jennifer Lopez's iconic Versace gown from the 2000 music award show. But in case you've forgotten, J. Lo is here to remind you about that famous tropical outfit in her latest music video for the single "I Luh Ya Papi."

In the Jessy Terrero-directed video, the singer goes for a similar outfit -- designed by Versus Versace -- featuring a palm-tree print and plunging neckline. Adding to the video's sexy appeal, and in a nod to the singer's personal style over the years, Jenny from the Block also is seen sporting a denim-on-denim outfit -- skintight Versus Versace x J.W. Anderson long-sleeve top and Ashton Michael white shorts, and plenty of gold accessories (Gucci sunglasses, included) -- all while being surrounded by half-naked men.

Rob Zangardi, who styled the music video with Mariel Haenn (the duo is No. 10 on our 25 Most Powerful Stylists list) tells Pret-a-Reporter via email that "re-creating the iconic Versace [outfit] was an idea that Mariel and I had, which perfectly fit in the vibe of her new album and this video treatment." Zangardi notes that the rereleased print by Versus Versace now is available at Versace's website. Channeling J.Lo's famous Grammys look has never been easier.

As for the original barely there Versace dress, it's currently on permanent display in the performer's house, sources tell us.
