You know that photo you found after a quick Google Images search this morning? It's all because of Jennifer Lopez.

In a blog post for Project Syndicate, Google's Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt said that Google Images was created because of J.Lo and the green Versace dress she wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards.

"Jennifer Lopez wore a green dress that, well, caught the world’s attention," Schmidt wrote. "At the time, 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. Google Image Search was born."

In case you don't remember that famous dress, here it is:
