In 2000 Jennifer Lopez wore an exotic green silk chiffon Versace dress to the Grammy Awards. The sheer fabric with its tropical leaf and bamboo pattern, had a plunging neckline that extended below her navel. It received unprecedented global media coverage, and it has been cited, along with Elizabeth Hurley’s safety pin dress, as making Versace a household name. Twenty years later, J-LO closed Versace’s SS20 runway show wearing a recreation of that iconic dress.
Tropical leaf prints and hot-house fronds are nothing new. Monstera, palm and banana leaves have been trending in both interior and fashion design for around five years now. However, 50-year-old Jennifer has brought it right back to the forefront of fashion.
Eyewear follows the same trends as fashion. The Stone Pavillion by Coco Song embraces tropical greens and leaf-like patterns. This frame which would work beautifully as both an optical and a sunglass.
The exquisite Chopard sunglass, (model SCHD48S) has gradient lenses and precision-cast metal detail on the side. The unusual mirrored palm leaf-effect adds a touch of the diva. I can absolutely imagine Miss Lopez wearing it. And I wouldn’t say no to it myself. It’s stunning.
