It is clear that there are trends, as much as to say that the world of fashion is cyclical, which should never return. This is the case of the total look jeans with that Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, the couple of the moment back in the beginning of the year 2000, were planted (neither short nor lazy) in a red carpet. And not just because putting on your top to bottom in denim is frowned upon, quite the opposite, but obviously you have to know how and where to do it. Despite the storm of criticism they received in their time, this look at duo of the ‘brides of America’ went on to the history of fashion and today it remains intact in our memories.
Specifically, we go back to the year 2001, Britney and Justin are presented on the red carpet of the American Music Awards hand-in-hand and carrying two outfits made of denim that, rather than fall in love with the present, leave critics and experts with the mouth open before the one who is considered to be one of the great errors of style seen on a red carpet. Don’t you remember? Let’s refresh your memory with this valuable graphic document.
Or that Britney Spears out the singer of the moment, dubbed as the ‘princess of pop’, nor that Justin Timberlake to lead the boy band NSYNC saved these two from burning. And look at that has spent time and a string of looks rocambolescos for the red carpets around the world, but this denim look is coordinated remains at the top as one of the icons, by tacky, fashion.
Desolate and without any explanation to this slip-up style, we kept asking ourselves: why these two were planted as well in the American Music Awards of the year 2001? And finally it seems that we have a clear answer and it comes on the part of one of the protagonists. Has been the own Justin Timberlake the manager to reveal the true reason that explains the look of jeans in an interview that the singer has been granted to another member of NSYNC, Lance Bass, on ‘The Daily Popcast’.
“When you’re young and you are in love you do many things as well,” he told Timberlake. The singer knew ahead of time that Britney Spears I was going to wear a long dress made of patches of different fabrics denim, so I decided to join such a look to go to the game with which at the time was his girlfriend. Come on, that is an error fashionista committed by love. Is more, has defended tooth and nail this outfit to duo arguing that today “you could petarlo” carrying something as well.
Leaving aside this controversial set of jeans, it is evident that the couple, in addition to to position itself as two of the referents of the most powerful of the pop music of the time, they also became a style icon for a whole generation, as today we are Victoria and David Beckham or Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively.
