Internet searches for a dress worn by which celebrity led to the development of Google Images?
Jennifer Lopez didn’t just break the internet. She made the internet. It was the year 2000, and up until this point, red carpets were fairly tame and fully clothed affairs. That is until Jennifer Lopez arrived at the 2000 Grammys in her now-infamous green Versace gown with a neckline that plunged down to her naval; it was held together simply by fashion tape. The effect of her outfit — now referred to as simply “The Dress” — became the inspiration of Google Images. Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google, wrote: “It was the most popular search query we had ever seen. But we had no surefire way of getting users exactly what they wanted: J.Lo wearing that dress.” As a result, Schmidt said, “Google Image Search was born.”
Answer: The correct answer is Jennifer Lopez.
