Britney Spears is known as the “Princess of Pop”, the very image of late 90’s and early aught’s fashion. Most recently she has resurfaced as victim in the #FreeBritney movement.
The Hulu documentary, Framing Britney Spears, covers Britney’s conservatorship controlled by her father since 2008, her mistreatment by the industry and the media throughout her career, as well as her ups and downs throughout her life as a public figure.
While more about Spears life unfolds, it’s important to remember Britney’s impact on Pop music and the blueprint that so many of her styles shaped for today's fashion industry.
With her status as “Princess of Pop”, Brit’s looks were either worshipped or harshly torn apart. Regardless of the public’s opinion, every outfit she wore was iconic to me.
If you didn’t tie up your Limited Too cami into a belly shirt and pretend you were Britney Spears while dancing to “Hit Me Baby One More Time”, at one point during your childhood, you’re lying to yourself.
