The Evolution Of Britney Spears’ Instagram

We think we've discovered the hidden intention behind all those incredible DIY fashion shoots

The Evolution Of Britney Spears' Instagram

by Jazmin Kopotsha |

Britney Spears has Instagram down. There are only a handful of celebrities who have managed to carve out an identifiable social media brand that we regular humans secretly enjoy scrolling through. Obviously, there's Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian who are both out there waving the flag for that contrived beauty #ad aesthetic. Beyoncé has more than nailed the infrequent teasing of not music but pregnancy announcements and general sartorial brilliance. But my girl Britney, she's got a different thing going. A thing that works so well that she's only gone and landed herself a deal with French fashion brand, Kenzo.

She looks great, if not heavily edited, but let's rewind a bit first. Pre-Kenzo Britney Spears was all of us. At least, she's the bodycon wearing, hair flicking, shallow inspirational quote posting version of our teenage selves. The selves that we thought we were every time we shared a pouty photo of us stood, hand on hip in the hallway of our parents' houses to Bebo or MySpace in 2006. Britney is low-key nostalgia and don't you forget it.

In the last year or so, though, Britney got smart about Instagram without telling anyone. We started to see less of the 'Classy, Sassy and a little bit Smart Assy' memes as Brit casually started to drop DIY fashion shoots into the mix. The rogue regramming of obscure non-celebs and sharing of stock images (remember the not-your-corn incident of 2016?) were replaced by insane workout routines and mini montages of herself wearing various bodycon mini dresses.

Enter Kenzo, who seemed to have caught on to this change of pace and thus made Britney, the Girl Next Door of our childhoods, the face of their new La Collection Momento campaign. What better excuse to look back on the Instagram journey that saw Britney arrive in our feeds in the campaign's Hawaiian shirt, baseball cap and a denim bum bag. See here, the year-long evolution of InstaBritney, bitch.

Caption: 'I was really inspired yesterday by @madonna's post. She's right... silence=death! These words really stuck with me, because they are so true. I've always wanted to do a performance like this... singing in a pretty little black dress, with a simple 360, one take shot! I figured since it was my birthday, why not go for it?! so boom. When the clock struck 12:00, I did it!!! Thank you all for the beautiful birthday wishes, and for letting me do what I love. I appreciate you more than you will ever know!!!'

Look! Look how cute and funny Britney was. We tried to be this girl, with the sharing of generic funny memes, but it didn't work. Britney was into it, though...
