Back in 2000, Lopez shocked the world when she wore the daring green chiffon dress with low neckline alongside rapper Diddy. Fast forward 17 years later, the Shades of Blue star's style choice is still considered one of the most memorable looks of all time.

In the recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Lopez's former boo reflected on the night the singer wore the now-iconic dress. "Just wow," the rapper told the news outlet. "We were just stepping up our game as far as what we were wearing and how we were gonna use fashion."

While Diddy admits he knew the dress would turn a couple of heads, he wasn't prepared for it to become the biggest moment in fashion history. "I thought it was gonna really change the game as far as for her and fashion," he added. "I didn't know how big it was gonna be, but it was a great moment for her."

However, the singer wasn't only responsible for the most iconic moment in pop culture, thanks to the popularity of the exotic printed dress, the Shades of Blue actress led to the creation of Google Images. “People wanted more than just text. This first became apparent after the 2000 Grammy Awards, where Jennifer Lopez wore a green dress that, well, caught the world's attention,” Google's executive chairman, Eric Schmidt revealed. “At the time, it was the most popular search query we had ever seen. But we had no sure-fire way of getting users exactly what they wanted: JLo wearing that dress. Google Image Search was born."

Although Combs and J.Lo have both moved on with their lives and relationships, there is no bad blood among the exes. "She deserved (the recognition)," the Bad Boy Entertainment founder said. "She is one of the fliest out there."
