    2. This photo just welcomed me to Spencer's and asked if I needed help finding anything.

    3. Britney's boots are still kinda killer, but the ruffled floral dress is, um, toxic (sry).

    4. Justin Timberlake embodied every 7th grader who's ever tried to look edgy at a school dance.

    5. Avril Lavigne in camo pants, a ribbed tank, and a loose tie was the essence of sk8er girl chic.

    6. Pink wore all these bright colors to distract us from her feet being too big for her shoes.

    7. Rihanna's pants took "shine bright like a diamond" a little too seriously.

    16. If Raven-Symoné actually could've seen into the future, she might've hired a different stylist.

    17. Now we know Pharrell was the inspiration for Cookie from Empire all the way back in 2004.
