Have you noticed how many jaw-dropping outfits Britney Spears is wearing this summer? Apparently, this is no fluke - she's reportedly been told to dress better by her "The X Factor" boss, Simon Cowell.
"It was made clear she is expected to be impeccably dressed and made-up for the show. And none of those ragged hair extensions," a source told the New York Post.
The mandate allegedly came after she showed up at some show functions in less-than-perfect clothes - and without a bra. Sources close to the show have slammed the rumors, but we're happy with whatever inspired Spears' new look.
Let's take a look back at some of Spears' looks over the summer.
Spears usually opts for body-hugging dresses, but we were pleasantly surprised with this girly (and white!) Alaia dress in June during auditions for "The X Factor" in Kansas City. We loved how it showed off her trim-and-toned legs. Sadly, she didn't stick with this look for long.
Red Bandage Dress
As we said, Spears loves bandage and body con dresses. Case in point? This skintight red bandage dress that she wore in June at the Rhode Island auditions. Our favorite part of the look? Her loose hair.
Pink and Plunging
It's all about balance when you swear a super short dress, and Spears pulled off the look perfectly when she wore this high-collared and short-hemline Brian Lichtenberg Scuba Zipper dress in coral during the Austin auditions. The downside of the look? She doesn't exactly look comfortable with all the attention.
Beautiful in Black
Surprise, surprise: Spears opted for a Herve Leger dress with cute cutouts when "The X Factor" squad hit up North Carolina on July 9. Loosen up, Brit! She looks so uncomfortable.
Britney in Beige
Halleluiah! Spears opted for a sparkly beige Lorena Sarbu mini dress in June in Oakland, Calif. Love. It.
Pretty in Plum
Back to where it all began: Spears wore a plum-colored Falguni & Shane Peacock dress in New York City when she was introduced with Demi Lovato as a new judge on the show. She looks incredibly uncomfortable here - and now we know why. Simon Cowell just told TMZ that Spears wanted to quit before she even began.
"Now, she's fine," he said. "She's absolutely dealing with it, and I think she's enjoying it."
