Katy Perry And Riff Raff Channel Britney Spears And Justin Timberlake At 2014 MTV VMAs

OMG, Katy Perry just changed the red carpet game forever thanks to her hilarious 2014 MTV VMA red carpet look.

Instead of wearing just any old red carpet getup, the "Dark Horse" singer and her date Riff Raff paid homage to Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake's famous denim ensembles that they wore at the 2001 American Music Awards.

Katy's custom Versace dress included a sexy thigh-high slit, plenty of patchwork, lots of silver studs and a metallic belt. Of course the outfit wouldn't be complete without a matching jean purse and lots of Britney attitude, which Katy had in spades. (But where was JT's denim hat??)

Of the outfits, Katy said: "this is how we do remix." We love ya, Katy!
