Britney Spears has made many questionable fashion decisions in her life and for that we are thankful.

While she'll never be a style icon on the level of Rihanna or Lady Gaga, the "Gimme More" pop star's red carpet and on-stage outfits will never be forgotten—not because they were particularly stylish, but because they were so wacky and so, well, Britney. (Do we even need to remind you of the his-and-hers Canadian tuxedos?)

So, to celebrate Brit's 33rd birthday, which falls on Tuesday, Dec. 2, we take a look at the 19 times the Las Vegas crooner made us question her style (in the most loving way, of course).

Britney, forever!

    Snakeskin print, a metallic crop top and a choker. Clearly, Britney couldn't choose to stick to one theme.

    Her most iconic outfit was a strapless denim dress. The world was never the same.

    The Lichtenstein tights added a touch of je ne sais quoi to this odd outfit.

    A halterneck lace-up top? Britney, what were you thinking??

    Clearly, Britney had a thing for low-rise pants in the early aughts.

    Yes, Britney Spears looked cute in that top but that brown satin skirt was not the best thing she's ever worn.

    There's too much of a boudoir feel going on here.

    Fur cuffs? Ok then.

    Tiered ruffles should only be worn at prom.

    Even Britney knew that this dress wasn't the right choice.

    We can see your bra, girl. Cute tuxedo dress, though.
