The 8 Photos Britney Spears Doesn’t Want You To See!Published on July 24, 2013. Updated May 8, 2014
Britney Spears made history after donning a tied up schoolgirl outfit in her first video for her hit song Baby One More Time. Since then, she’s graced every red carpet from the Billboard Music Awards to the Grammys. While the pop princess has scored many awards for her music, she won’t be winning any best dressed awards anytime soon.
We love you, Brit. But we hate these outfits.
Here are Britney Spears’ 8 most disastrous red carpet fashion moments. File these under “what the hell was I thinking”…
8. Pre-Grammy Party, 2002
Britney Spears arrives at the 2002 pre-Grammy party donning an unflattering, two-toned, off-the-shoulder dress that looks like it could be a hand-me-down from Courtney Love circa 1995.
7. NSync Launch Party, 2001
Just because you have the body to wear a midriff-bearing top doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. As though the top isn’t hideous enough, everyone’s favorite Southern belle paired it with a pair of prune-colored bell bottom jeans and a silver choker necklace. Nice.
6. Teen Choice Awards, 1999
If you’re looking for an attention-grabbing ensemble that will set you apart from everyone else, ask Britney to borrow this outfit from the 1999 Teen Choice Awards. Sure, it was almost a decade and a half ago but, rest assured, even in the heat of the atrocious 90’s fashion scene, disco-sequined pants were never in style.
5. American Music Awards, 2003
You’d think by 2003 Brit would have graced enough red carpets to know what’s acceptable and what’s not. Unfortunately, the multi-million dollar singer still showed up to the American Music Awards wearing an outfit that looks like an 80’s figure skating uniform that lost a fight with a paper shredder.
4. The Four Feathers Premiere, 2002
I don’t care if you’re the most successful music icon of the decade, there’s absolutely no excuse for wearing tie-up pinstriped pants and a top hat anywhere, let alone a red carpet event. Come on, Brit.
3. Crossroads Premiere, 2002
Anyone who says ‘there’s no such thing as too much pink’ obviously hasn’t seen Britney Spears circa February of 2002. The starlet donned a baby pink hat with a matching baby doll dress and knee-high, pointy-toed boots. Oh, and to top it all off, she threw on a pair of rolled-up denim capris – because, you know, without them the outfit might look trashy.
2. Teen Choice Awards, 2001
Where do you even begin with an outfit like this? Basically, Brit’s stylist paired a baby pink men’s dress shirt with a button-up denim skirt and denim bra. Here’s hoping she fired her stylist later that night.
1. Billboard Music Awards, 2000
Each piece of the outfit Britney chose to wear to the 2000 Billboard Music Awards is hideous enough to land the number one spot on this list. Combine them all into one ensemble and you have the most disastrous outfit to ever grace the body of Miss Britney Spears. From the ridiculous hat to the mauve tights and red velvet boots, this outfit has disaster written all over it. Sorry, Brit!
