shot by mario testino, britney spears appears on the cover of V’s issue no. 70. through sophisticated styling by panos yiapanos, spears appears in designs by tom ford, ralph lauren & ferragammo in her three part cover series. yellow, blue & pink shades are seen as the defending queen of pop returns for another killing season & uses her good girl image to do so. with connections to donatella versace during the early 2000’s, not many can compare or compete with the star of britney spears, concerning pop culture, music & image. beyond the parameters of fashion, britney transcends as a living icon of the american dream & remains untouched as the world’s greatest pop star. on the heels of her new album, femme fatale, britney graces the cover of V’s star power issue & clearly, there is nothing beats spears. as image has become heavily intertwined into the packaging of britney spears, as an artist, we first seen britney in 1999 when she debuted on the scene with her massive hit, “..baby one more time”. appearing in the music video clad in a school girl uniform, the pop scene was on-fire & britney single handedly revived pop music for the next generation. her first album, “..baby one more time” debuted at no. 1 on billboard & reached double platinum cerification within one month. after one year of release, britney’s first album moved 8,358,619 units & britney still holds the record as the youngest american artist in history to sell a million records. through the years we’ve seen britney in red patent leather jump suits, with boa constrictors around her neck & even seen her dark side during her blackout era. as britney gears up for the release of her 7th studio album, femme fatale, the world has come to know britney through media turmoil, record breaking music, failed relationships & meteoric rises both on & off the chart.
