Something else Britney Spears said about her and Justin Timberlake’s double denim outfits at the 2001 AMAs was how it was proof of their love. Although Timberlake was made fun of for the look, Spears said, “On one podcast where they were teasing him about it, he said, ‘You do a lot of things when you’re young and in love.’ And that’s exactly right. We were giddy, and those outfits reflected that.”
Another celebrity couple (of sorts) wore their own matching, double-denim outfits to an awards show. Although their official relationship status was very murky at the time, Katy Perry and Riff Raff channeled Spears and Timberlake at the 2014 VMAs — adding a little extra bling onto their versions of the denim outfits.
At the time, Perry replied to one of Spears tweets on X, formerly known as Twitter, and said, “@britneyspears I did my best impression, hope u likey!” The “Toxic” singer tagged Perry and replied, “Just when I thought the denim dress had retired … you bring it back! You looked amazing tonight bb .”
