If you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t seen Britney Spears’ Work B*tch music video, let us clue you in — the wardrobe she was rocking was FIERCE!
Feel free to watch or rewatch the seXXXy footage HERE!!
Brit Brit and her stylist, B. Akerlund, put a lot of effort into the outfits for the vid. Miz Spears explained her view of the choices:
"B. Akerlund’s costume designs always give me a sense of empowerment. The outfits for my Work B*tch video were strong and still so sexy."
We completely agree!!
And Akerlund was kind enough to explain each and every outfit to InStyle magazine!
To relive all the special ensems and hear what Akerlund has to say about them, read on….
First, this Zest Corset from Murmur by Andreea Badala Pre-AW12 collection paired with an L.A. ROXX zipper front leather panty:
“This is old-school lingerie which I quite love.”
Next, the custom metal mesh bikini with Swarovski crystal embellishment:
“I knew that Britney always loves a hot pant and a bikini. We designed it to elongate her and make her look good–and she certainly did!”
Then, the gold metal Marlies Dekker bra paired with a partially sheer pencil skirt:
“This look is super sexy and risqué, her outfit was a little see-through on the sides.”
The handmade strap harness and bustier paired with chain shorts:
“This is something that Britney styled herself. I second-guessed her for a second but like most artists she knows her body and she looked amazing. I’ll definitely give her credit for styling that one!”
The Lady Citron bordelle bodice bra and menswear-inspired pants:
“They’re actually my personal pants that she ended up wearing! I think she looks really strong in this outfit.”
The Manish Arora embellished cutout crop top and wide leg satin pants with Giuseppe Zanotti stilettos:
“This was a Swarovski crystal archive piece."
The custom monochrome dress and Pony Fetish stilettos by Scarlet Fever:
“This dress is custom made for her– I actually had it made for her two years ago for the Hold it Against Me video but we never ended up using it. She loved it, it was kind of fun how it circled back. The shoes are awesome they have little lockets on the back with a key–I had to lock her into the shoes. I kept on saying to myself ‘ please don’t loose the keys’ because we wouldn’t have been able to get the shoes off of her!”
And finally, the George Chakras-designed hot pink and electric blue gown with a crystalized thigh-high slit:
“This dress was really amazing because it had mesh cutouts, then there’s pink strips on it with layers of chiffon. We completed the look with pink leather bikini gloves.”
All equally hawt and powerful choices!!
And major props to Britney styling one of the looks herself!
Don't U just love them??
