Britney just hit the red (pink? magenta?) carpet at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards in a look that was 100 percent her. Lacey half-skirt, black onesie, messy hair, edgy makeup — she looks like her quintessential self. In fact, Britney Spears' 2016 Billboards Outfit looks identical to a past outfit of hers. Can you remember it? No?
Here's a hint: it's incredibly similar to her 2001 look at the MTV Video Music Awards. I know, that was a while ago, but it just goes to show how Britney stays true to herself. It also goes to show that your style likes and dislikes can come back around (so never, ever clean out your closet).
As another reminder, those 2001 VMAs included the iconic yellow snake, Banana, that Britney brought on stage to perform'Slave 4 U.' Britney is performing tonight, so if this similar look is any indication of what she has in store for us, it is probably a good sign.
The singer will be performing her greatest hits on stage, much to my excitement (and probably yours). I'm hoping for an over-the-top, Las Vegas-style performance, and I'm sure we'll get it. Here's hoping Banana is brought back for a reprisal.
Granted, her 2016 look is a tad bit more detailed.
But so similar.
But then there's those shoes...
And the train, of course. A great look in 2001 and now to say the least.
