Iconic Britney Spears & Justin Timberlake Throwback Moment Is A T-Shirt

Lester

By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

Whether they are owning the red carpet or strutting down the street, celebrities are always serving us some seriously stylish looks. But on one day in particular, two icons changed fashion history as we know it. It was a day we remember well, January 8, 2001, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake stepped onto the red carpet at the American Music Awards wearing a coordinated denim ensemble. It was the most on point denim-on-denim get-up the world has ever seen. Seriously, it has been cited as the most memorable, instantly iconic style moment ever.

 

What better way to pay tribute to such a turning point in celebrity fashion history than with a clothing line? Filles a Papa’s, a Belgian brand, honors 2001 Britney and Justin as part of their “Never Forget” t-shirt series. It has a digital print of the duo clad in the exact denim ensemble we all love and remember. High fashion does come at a steep price, however. $152.47 to be exact.

 

Filles a Papa’s founders told Glamour magazine, “We enjoy playing with moments that are instantly memorable. We love creating prints from nostalgic moments of our past- it’s an inspiration to us.” We couldn’t agree more, and we’re totally here for it.
