For many years, Britney Spears could be counted on to wear a minor variation on two outfits: Sweats, Uggs and a messy bun for play, or a bandage dress with ankle booties for work. Though we understand the joy of a go-to look, we did dream of a day when the star might mix it up and attempt some dressy-casual looks in between her two extremes.

The great Britney Spears once sang, “You want a piece of me?” What we didn’t realize is that she meant it literally — and now she’s ready to deliver. The pop icon has personally signed 100 bottles of her limited-edition 10th anniversary “Fantasy” fragrance to be shipped out to random locations around the globe. Most fans will have to buy one and hope for the “golden ticket,” but one lucky PEOPLE StyleWatch reader can get their hands on a personally signed Britney bottle with no more than a Tweet.

“I am so incredibly grateful to all my fragrance fans for 10 amazing years,” Spears exclusively tells PEOPLE in a statement. “Each perfume I developed is a piece of my life, my story. I wanted to make my fans a part of that story, so I put their names and countries into the package design to make them the most important piece of this incredible milestone. Now they can share the spotlight with me!”

4 Throwback Denim Styles We Won't Be Trying at Home

A lot of thought went into our 3rd Annual Denim Awards, featured in the October issue of PEOPLE StyleWatch (on stands now!). Staffers tried on more than 500 pairs of jeans to narrow down the selection to 38 of the best, most flattering styles. And while you’re sure to find tons of awesome, wearable denim in the issue, there are four types of jeans you most definitely won’t find in the pages of the October issue: these throwback looks.

We don’t think you should emulate these denim looks, but we do think these photos will be perfect for your next #ThrowbackThursday post. (Just because we wouldn’t wear these jeans doesn’t mean we wouldn’t double-tap the pics.)

1. That time that Britney Spears (in a denim maxi) and Justin Timberlake (in denim-on-denim-on-denim-on-denim) swam to the 2001 AMAs together in a sea of blue. Their matchy-matchy ensembles were such a fashion mishap, it’s hard to believe how much progress JT has made on the style front since then.
2. Jessica Simpson’s infamous “mom jeans” that she busted out in 2009. At least she realized her mistake, as she later told Oprah that the high-waisted moment was a major low point in her life.
3. Miley Cyrus’s LSD denim — i.e. her “least sexy denim” acid-washed jeans. She wore them in February 2012 … right before her infamous Salvia situation. Just saying.
4. Rihanna’s mechanic jumpsuit, which she trotted out last summer. We’re happy to report that the singer has since moved on to new forms of denim such as overalls.

So, now that we’ve finished our stroll down denim memory lane, be sure to check out our People StyleWatch Denim Shop on GILT to score exclusive discounts on the outstanding jeans featured in the issue.

And let us know: Which of these throwback denim looks do you hope never comes back into style?

In our weekly roundup of the looks that are gaining fashion ground (and the ones losing their style street cred), we noticed several stars flaunting their curves in second-skin stunners and selecting dresses with out-of-the-box hemlines. Plus, we spotted one celeb playing a game of “Earrings vs. Décolletage,” and we’re pretty sure she lost.

Britney Spears Has a New Favorite Outfit

One thing you can never criticize Britney Spears for is lack of consistency. When she loves something, she really commits. She had an acid-wash jeans moment, a bandage-dresses moment — and these days, you’ll rarely see her without her new favorite look. In fact, she wore it three times in five days!

Consisting of a lace-inset, chevron-striped tee, Skinnytees leggings and velcro hi-tops, the star’s current go-to outfit has the blend of laid-back comfort and soccer mom functionality that Spears prefers as a busy mother of two.


PHOTOS: Check out the spring trends you’ve got to try!

We’re impressed that she follows style director Andrea Lavinthal’s patented “if you love it, buy it in two colors” advice. And individually, all of these pieces are actually pretty cute. The top is amazing for a lazy day at the beach, the bottoms make her legs look great and hi-tops are totally on trend for the moment.

We’re not sure we’d put them all together at once — but of course, that’s why Spears’s style is simply inimitable.

Tell us: What do you think of Spears’s latest favorite look?

Rare is the girl who hasn’t coveted Sarah Jessica Parker‘s shoe collection — or that of her T.V. alter ego, Carrie Bradshaw.

But while you can’t walk in Bradshaw’s heels (she is fictional, after all), Parker is putting a few of her fancy pairs on the auction block to benefit N.Y.C.’s LaGuardia Arts High School.

Parker, who donated three pairs of shoes to the auction, is one of 17 stars whose items are up for sale to benefit the performing arts school. She signed the soles of each set of shoes — including the Prada platform clogs and Jonathan Kelsey sandals pictured above — and bidding starts at just $100.
