Britney Spears, better known as The Princess of Pop, landed back in the news recently after her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, sat down for a controversial interview. Her personal life has sometimes threatened to eclipse her professional achievements, which include being the best-selling female artist of the 2000s. Despite her semi-retirement several years ago, Spears was still named by Time Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of 2021. Through it all, she has served a bevy of memorable looks. Scroll down to see her most memorable fashion moments.

Spears is known for her 80s-influenced performance costumes, many of which were inspired by Madonna's onstage style. Occasionally Spears carries her love of sparkle offstage, incorporating it into her formal looks. When she selected this silver and gold minidress, she gave us a Las Vegas showgirl vibe and showed off her dancer's body. The gold lips, gold earrings, and bronzed skin add some glow to this glittery ensemble.

Throwback Style

Spears dominated the late 1990s and 2000s, and she isn't afraid to grab some style inspiration from that era too. The babydoll lingerie and the black woven choker are a clear throwback to the start of her career. The strappy high-heels give this look a sharper, modern edge that matches her signature black eyeliner. Spears does a good job here of rescuing the babydoll look from overkill sweetness.

A Classic Look

Spears has never been known for her business casual looks, but she hits all the right notes in this neutral-toned suit. Those low-rise pants aren't something you would see much anymore, although they were a long-time favorite for Spears and other celebs. The black lace bustier is what saves this outfit from actually being businesslike while giving it a little extra sex appeal. One of her strengths in fashion is the ability to combine two opposing styles, as she does with this classic suit and lingerie-style top.

The Wild Side

If anyone can turn a bikini into an entire outfit, it's Spears. Judging by her wardrobe, a woman can never have too much animal print. And she certainly knows how to style it. This zebra-print bikini paired with white go-go boots gives this a wild feeling with a 1960s edge to it. Her accessories are usually minimal and give over maximum attention to whatever she's wearing and here it works perfectly. Even in a bathing suit and boots, she's still a style icon.
