Who Wore It Best? Justin Timberlake’s Ex Britney Spears And His Wife Jessica Biel Face Off In Lace

Jessica Biel isn’t just following in the footsteps of hubby Justin Timberlake‘s first love, Britney Spears, she’s also following her fashions!

Sunday night Jessica showed up to an MTV Video Music Awards after-party at NYC’s Dream Hotel in a sheer black gown that looked very familiar.

Indeed, Brit Brit rocked a tighter, shorter, D&G version of Jess’ frock at the VMAs back in 2001 — ironically, the last time *NSYNC appeared on stage together before Sunday’s surprise performance.

Britney and Justin were dating at the time.

(She also wore a longer lace gown to the Grammys in 2010, making it something of a signature style.)

So was Jessica paying tribute to the *NSYNC era? Or, since Jess has said Justin often dresses her, did he have Britney on the brain as he prepped for his big reunion? Or was it all just a coincidence? And most importantly, who wore it best? Let us know in the comments!
