After all the revelations about Justin Timberlake in Britney Spears' memoir, his popularity is at an all-time low.
He was, perhaps, the only actor who (we imagine) hoped that this year's historic strike would prevent him from promoting his project. Appearing in public is not fun for him.
But life goes on and his wife Jessica Biel also makes public appearances.
One of his latest was a blast from the past…and channeled a look JT rocked alongside Britney Spears.
Denim is very specific material. No one really questions it when you wear pants. Anything else? You could also wrap yourself in strings of LED lights. People will notice.
On Wednesday, Jessica Biel took to Instagram to share photos from a trip to Las Vegas she took with friends.
In one photo, which you can see below, she sported an all-denim ensemble.
In addition to the photographs, he also included a caption.
“Boots, Bestie, Rodeo round 2,” Biel wrote alongside a cowboy emoji.
Meanwhile, on TikTok, she also shared a look at her outfit in a “get ready with me” video, writing: “another rodeo + denim on denim + cowboy boots.”
So why is this particularly notable? Don't get us wrong: Jessica Biel is beautiful and she always has been. But is denim news?
Not by itself. Unless there's a shortage or a factory fire or whatever.
The problem is, perhaps the most iconic fashion moment featuring denim (in the history of the world) involves Biel's husband, Justin Timberlake. And it's about Britney Spears.
More than two decades ago, Britney and Justin put on denim and changed the world in the process.
In 2001, Britney wore a patchwork denim dress. Next to her, then-boyfriend Justin Timberlake wore a Canadian tuxedo (i.e. made of denim) along with a cowboy hat.
This was for the American Music Awards that year. You could say times were simpler then. Worse in many ways, but hey, it was months before 9/11.
When people talk about all-denim fashion, JT and Britney are almost invariably what come to mind for millions of people.
So seeing Timberlake's wife wearing denim is… well, it's a sign that she made a decision.
Either he didn't think about all of this, is aware of the infamous fashion moment but decided to ignore it, or… Does JT really like the look of a beautiful woman dressed in denim? She's getting attention, is what we say.
