i bet justin is kicking himself in the head for stepping out like this. britney...totally understandable but justin. his coolness factor just dropped 3 fold.

I love that clip!!! It is a classic! I have looked for that on YouTube before and couldn't find it. I will need to check out Hulu. (I've got to find the SNL, Nicholas Cage, Baby naming, Asswipe clip.)

And yes. Bad, bad, bad red carpet choices. (But would be OK for just, you know, running errands or something...)

haha...I hope I'm not alone here, but I like this! Denim is one of the best inventions I think...errr?!
~Happy Friday!

Waxy said...

Clorivak said...

don't they looks so young? bleh.

Andhari said...

That's not only bad and sad, it's also embarassing! Wow. Too much denim!

The Haute-Shopper said...

I was always hoping that Justin's main reason for wearing that crap was that he was being heavily sponsored by a jeans company. Britney? Well, doesn't she always wear crap? In any case, have a fab weekend! Oh, and I left you an award on my blog :)

brooke said...

so you're tellin me i shouldn't wear the denim dress tonight?!? damn it!!!

TERI REES WANG said...

...those two were Sony & Cher all over again. ..just not any better.

You she'll look back at the photo and think "how sweet", and he'll look back and say .." I'm dead meat"..!
He's thinking it right then; you can see it, he thinks its funny while it's happening. He knows when he's the punchline of his own joke. Poor thing, she'll never know until it's past due. Shame.

Raez said...

oh my god! thats terrible, i am scarred for lifeeeee!

Raina said...

What I don't understand is that his jacket was obviously bespoke (using the term quite loosely here), so why is it so poorly tailored?

Red Boots said...

Perhaps there was an explosion in the Levi's factory. It's the only explanation for this denim disaster! xx

Fresh said...

At least there's no patchwork... oh wait.

Reminds me of the time that I dressed up for "Retro Day" in middle school. I'd read a flyer saying to wear your favorite decade-fashions to school, so I came in my mom's Brittanica peg leg jeans and a denim embroidered Holly Hobby shirt. When I got to school, no one else was dressed up. The flyers was for kindergarteners only.

Gabby said...

THANK BABY JESUS I am here reading your blog...I was terrified I'd never see it again!

And what a gem this one is!

Hanako66 said...

pshaaaaaaaahaha

we're back!!!!!!!!!

Iva said...

ugh and now I can't load the clip.....not a good day in the life of a blogger! I might as well just wear that dress to top things off :)

Chrystina said...

Oh man, when they wore that outfit I was mortified for them, and Justin is one of my future husbands, everyone knows that. But thank god that his style has gotta better with age because when he was dating britney his outfits were just ughhh. I blame her hahaha <3

The Cottage Cheese said...

God, I am so old (36 today). I remember the Bad Idea Jeans SNL commercial from when it originally aired! I expected this crap from Britney, but I forgot just how stupid Justin's wardrobe used to be.

sealaura said...

wow! I know JT had some bad fashion moments in the past. But this outfit is just wrong. poor guy. at least he has bounced back and even become quite the designer.

apriliniowa said...

Oh, they're just keepin' it classy. Love the SNL clip.

Gabbi said...

SNL is king and I love that all-denim photo of Britney and Justin. Clearly a sign of tacky things to come...

Toothfairynotes said...

ew! it's really ugly!!! hahaha!

Have a great weekend!
*loves*

alissa said...

omg i totally forgot about that outfit - thats insane.
the bad idea jeans are too funny - i might start sewing a tag into the back seam of mine.

Summer said...

OMG to that picture. What the hayell????

Kristin said...

Oh my little JT. WHY?

WendyB said...

You know what? I would love to wear that denim gown now. I hated it at the time. I had less of a sense of humor then, I guess. But even now, I wouldn't accessorize it with a matching dude.

one little simitopian said...

Hahahahahahhaa!!!!!
hehehhe..
WOAH.I just don't...what?
Why?

thereddeer said...

Oh dear that is scary!

freeteyme said...

bwahahahaha never laughed as much!

Big Red said...

I Love It Everyday!

To make fun of it, not to wear it.

anna said...

I may have nightmares from the Brit/JT photo. Yikes!

Milly said...

Yep..hated their outfits!

Phoenix said...

it's probably clear at this point that Britney was keeping Justin Timberlake from becoming hot.

Atomic Lola said...

Uck. What?

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Look how sweet and innocent Britney looks!

Miami HD Rental said...

Ah yes, Britney and Justin, proof that nothing kills romance like going all matchy-matchy, especially in denim.
