It’s the dress heard round the world: Rosie joked about it. Katie Couric and the Later Today girls railed against it. The rest of us slobs just want to know what she wore underneath it. Here’s more than you need to know about the teasing $6 million look of Jennifer Lopez.

Despite reports that adhesive kept Lopez in place, her stylist, Andrea Lieberman, is insisting the actress wasn’t stuck to the bamboo-print dress: ”It’s well constructed. If you carry yourself well, you won’t have a problem.” Uh-huh. But along with flat abs and pert breasts, you’ll need a good-girl-gone-bad vibe. Amber Valetta wore the $9,000 number on the runway and the press barely blinked.

Dream on — Lopez did not go commando. According to Versace, the dress comes with built-in panties.

It poured in L.A. before the Grammys — how did Lopez get golden? ”There’s no doubt…she had body bronzing,” insists Helen K. Famulare, of Elizabeth Arden’s Red Door Salon. ”It’s become so popular…people are finally understanding what the sun will do to their skin.” But what happens when it’s exposed to nearly 28 million TV viewers?
