Did Olivia Rodrigo Just Pay Tribute to Britney Spears?

Olivia Rodrigo held a meet and greet at Glossier’s West Hollywood outpost on Monday and the singer wore a riff on the classic school uniform for the occasion. She wore a baby tee with the bedazzled message “VOTE!,” a pleated micro skirt, a grey cardigan with feathered sleeves, and Mary Janes. (She masterfully prevented it from feeling too costume-y by wearing these trendy pieces). The homeroom-inspired look would surely be grounds for detention at your average private school. But on Rodrigo, it is School of Rock chic.

We can’t help but think of Britney Spears’ iconic schoolgirl outfit from the “...Baby One More Time” video. There is a strong possibility Rodrigo’s look was directly inspired by Brit. The 19-year-old has a penchant for paying meaningful tributes to the pop stars who came before her. She executed a Britney tribute in her “Brutal” video, wearing the same 2003 Roberto Cavali dress that Spears wore to an awards ceremony. Rodrigo has also delivered subtle nods to Avril Lavigne’s “Complicated” era punk-rock style, wearing Hot Topic-ready plaid skirts and heavy eyeliner.

Either way, Rodrigo has expertly curated her own look while appreciating pop stars past. There’s bound to be musicians in 20 years paying tributes to her as well—face stickers and all.
