From the moment she burst on the scene wearing pigtails and a Catholic school uniform in her 1998 music video “...Baby One More Time,” Britney Spears has been making waves with her fashion choices.
Her penchant for crop tops and super low-rise jeans helped turn belly-baring denim into one of the most defining trends of the early 2000s and, for a few months at least, even made the best of us believe an exposed thong was completely acceptable.
And whether rocking a giant python snake on stage, Ugg boots on a Starbucks run, or a stonewashed denim ensemble alongside Justin Timberlake on the red carpet, Britney’s style has become downright legendary.
In honor of December 2nd being the pop princesses’ 38th birthday, here are some of Britney’s best at-home runway shows.
Call Her 'Senorita'
Who doesn’t love rediscovering items in their wardrobe they haven’t worn in years? Britney sure did as she captioned a video of herself modeling two minidresses and her signature denim cutoffs and crop top this summer by writing: “Wow.... so I found my cowboy hat today and found these cute dresses in my closet !!! So much fun to play !!!!” Even more fun is watching Brit groove to Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes’ hit “Senorita.”
Putting the Bee in Britney
A black slip dress and a bright yellow tank frock got a newly brunette Britney buzzing as she posed in this clip and wrote, “Black n yellow is a bumble 🐝 y’all.” And just in case you forgot, she added, “as in B .... my name y’all.” Britney always dropping knowledge for the children.
Bikini and Heels
While on vacation in Hawaii, Britney turned her hotel room into a catwalk to show off her two-tone bikini and and one of her trademark bodycon dresses. With Madonna’s “Human Nature” playing in the background, Britney strutted like a supermodel and captioned the clip, “So much fun in Maui .... had to put my heels on with my bathing suit.” Naomi Campbell is shook!
Little Black Dress
Britney showed off some of her classic hairography in this off-the-shoulder LBD as she salsa-danced to Shakira and Maluma’s hit “Chantaje.” In her caption, the mother of two noted the look was for the Daytime Beauty Awards and that she “felt beautiful.” We definitely agree.
Do the Polka
Crop-tops and polka dots and short-shorts, oh my! “Don’t you just love polka dots,” the music icon asked. Um, in these two classic Britney looks, how could you not?
The Pop Goddess Transformation
Back to blonde and all smiles, Britney flaunted her happy-go-lucky side in a yet another bikini, a flowing dress and floppy diva hat. While traipsing around the grounds of her Los Angeles area home, the “Lucky” songstress wrote, “First time wearing a long summer dress in a while !!! I feel like a princess ... wait no a queen .... a goddess.” Godney Spears, amiright? But turns out her heavenly moniker is actually inspired by a self-help guide. She added, “I’m reading The Inner Goddess Revolution at the moment!” And just like that the Britney Spears Book Club is born.
She Needs No Translation
Britney is pretty in pink as she sashays in a form-fitting minidress and matching stiletto heels to the sounds of the Edith Piaf classic “La Vie en Rose.” The song, which translates to “life in pink” has special significance as she indicated it’s “My favorite French song!” While Britney has never recorded a cover of the tune, other pop divas like Madonna, Grace Jones, Donna Summer and, most recently, Lady Gaga have all released versions of the French tune. For now, Britney fans will have to settle for la “B” en rose … outfits.
