Jennifer Lopez’s Grammys Dress:

Inside the mag, the star opens up about that famous Versace dress she wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards. “We had looked at a few dresses, and nothing was right,” Lopez recalled. “My stylist said, there’s this one dress, but other people have worn it. I tried on the Versace and decided to wear it anyway. But I was still surprised by the reaction: When I came onstage with David Duchovny, who was the biggest star in the world then, he said to the audience, ‘Nobody is looking at me,’ she said. “This loud sound started from the back of the room — it was kind of like a roar, over me in the dress. When I went to my seat, I said, ‘What’s the big deal?!’ [Then-boyfriend] Puffy and Benny [Medina, her manager] were waiting, and they said, ‘You have to take pictures in that dress.’ ”

Aside from dresses, she also talks about being a parent. “I think a lot about teaching my kids to work hard,” Lopez said. “I’ve learned something about kids—they don’t do what you say; they do what you do. I watched my parents,” she says.
