The denim dress returned to the red carpet Sunday. Katy Perry arrived at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards show wearing an outfit nobody ever thought would be seen in front of the cameras again -- a stunning denim gown reminiscent of the dress Britney Spears wore to the 28th annual American Music Awards presentation in 2001.

The dress Spears wore alongside then-boyfriend Justin Timberlake (who matched in a dapper denim suit) is iconic to fans of the pop starlet. The “Dark Horse” singer used Spears’ 2001 look for inspiration at the VMAs Sunday, even enlisting the help of her TMZ-rumored boyfriend Riff Raff to stand in as her Timberlake.
