Olivia Isabel Rodrigo is an American singer-songwriter and actress. “Brutal” is one of eleven songs from Olivia Rodrigo’s debut album Sour. “Brutal” music video, which was released on Monday, August 23, was filled with old school fashion vibe.
One outfit, in particular, paid tribute to Britney Spears.
In the video’s opening scene, the 18-year-old singer is wearing a white one-shoulder Roberto Cavalli dress with a bustier-like top and Britney Spears wore the exact same outfit in the 2003 American Music Awards.
This fashion tribute delighted fans far and wide, as many took to Twitter to share their love for the figurative fashion vibe being passed down.
“Olivia wearing Britney Spears’ 2003 mama dress is everything to me <3,” a fan wrote. “@Olivia_Rodrigo wearing one of Britney’s best award show dresses in #brutalMV is the serotonin boost I needed to day,” another person added.
This isn’t the first time that Rodrigo has given a subtle to Spears. In June, the “Drivers License” singer took to Instagram to share a picture of a school girl-esque outfit, complete with a pleated skirt and collared skirt.
It didn’t take long for the look, which was styled by Chloe and Chenelle Delgadillo, that looked similar to Spears’ “Baby One More Time” ensemble from the 1998 music video.
Flashback to January and Rodrigo and friend Iris Apatow gave also gave a subtle nod to Spears, too. They rocked “Dump Him” t-shirts that were first made popular by Spears in the early 2000s.
