On Sunday night, the stars came out in droves to hit up all the Oscars after-parties and to show off their fancy dresses. We were pleasantly surprised to see Britney Spears (newly brunette!) in the bunch, looking the best she’s looked in years.
WWD caught up with the singer at Elton John’s party, where she apparently said to the trade about her dress, “It’s Versace.” Which would be all well and good, except that, well… it wasn’t.
Spears’s publicist later clarified that the dress was, in fact, Michael Cinco Couture. (Michael Cinco is a Filipino-born, Dubai-based designer primarily known for his gowns–oh, and he was also on America’s Next Top Model. Check out his work here.)
We’re going to give Spears the benefit of the doubt here. After all, a lot of stars made wardrobe changes on Sunday. Maybe she was originally going to wear Versace, but then heard that Halle Berry was wearing it, and decided on something more off-the-beaten path. Either way, you looked good, Brit. Keep it up.
