You Have to See Dua Lipa Looking Just Like Britney Spears in a Y2K Denim Gown

Dua Lipa is on a hot denim streak! The “Levitating” singer is bringing back the Canadian tuxedo (a.k.a. full denim on denim on denim ‘fits) in the most glamorous way. For her 93rd show of her international Future Nostalgia tour, per her most recent Instagram caption, the singer hopped into a (theoretical) time machine and emerged in a fully early ‘00s moment.

“Show 93 baby!!!!!!! 🥶,” captioned Dua Lipa, who is currently rumored to be dating comedian Trevor Noah. The singer posed in front of a black curtain to show off her denim gown, which consisted of a mermaid-style skirt and train attached to a bustier top with bronze studs outlining the corset and running down two princess seams in the front. Two thin straps held up the jean top, and Dua slung a wide matching belt across her waist that featured a chunky bronze buckle and matching bronze hardware. Yeahhhh, consider us obsessed.

If this look feels super familiar to you, it might be because this strapless denim dress is a really iconic silhouette made popular by Britney Spears back in 2001. Fans were quick to call out in the comment section of Dua’s post — one person wrote, "Britney’s impact 🥺” while another declared "britney 🤝🏽 katy 🤝🏽 dua.” Yup, Katy Perry also paid homage to Britney's recognizable denim moment back in 2014 at the MTV Awards.

Instead of the huge choker that Britney wore, Dua decided to go for a more trendy alternative — a large, sparkly cross necklace with a bronze chain. The sparkles continued into her makeup, which featured specks of glitter dotted across her eyeshadow. The singer kept to her usual glam routine with a brushed-up brown, rosy pout, and downward-flicked liquid liner. Dua switched up her hair, though, wearing her usually-straight locks in beachy mermaid waves.

You heard it here first — when it comes to denim, Dua has decided that more is (still) more. Recreate Britney's, Katy's, and Dua's look with some of our denim favorites below.
