WHAT THE FUCK do you wear to meet Britney Spears in Las Vegas?!

OK, I have just over 2 weeks to get this sorted. I'm in the UK.

This is me achieving my lifetime's ambition. And I get a commemorative photo of us together. So I'd like to look good! And I will post the pic when I get back to thank you for helping me!

Despite my best efforts to lose weight this year (2.5 stone down!) I am still 11.5 stone at 5 foot 2. Waist: 34 inches, hips: 40. I'm a B/C cup. 34 years old and blonde w green eyes and celtic-pale skin).

I have a tattoo on my lower back which I might show I was thinking an evening dress cut very low at the back? And something which can fit in my carry-on suitcase (I'm not taking any luggage for the plane's hold). HOWEVER my legs are really not my best feature so it would need to be a long dress but petite length if you see what I mean.

I'm in the UK, for the avoidance of doubt.

And yes, I have booked a full-body wax, eyelash and eyebrow treatment and getting my highlights topped up before I go. And tooth whitening if I can remember to put it in at night!

I should have said, the tattoo is Britney-themed so there is a reason I'm showing her it!!

ChickenVindaloo2 Sat 23-Sep-17 10:38:45

<totally outed self but who cares>

definitely a low backed evening dress this is a massive occasion for you. don't worry about it getting stressed in your carry on the hotel will have an iron.

Ummmmgogo Sat 23-Sep-17 10:42:02

creased not stressed

Wow this must have set you back some dollars!

It depends. Under what circumstances and at what time of day are we talking about?

toomanykidstocount Sat 23-Sep-17 10:49:16

How about a low backed and strappy but wide legged jumpsuit? There's lots around at the moment. With high shoes and nice jewellery it will look lovely.

FritzyMousey Sat 23-Sep-17 10:51:05

This sounds amazing for such a fan, what an experience! What dress size would you be looking for?

ChickenVindaloo2 Sat 23-Sep-17 10:56:49

OOOft, I'm getting so excited!
I booked and paid for a VIP front row package with back-stage tour and Meet & Greet. grin
Aye, jumpsuit sounds a good idea! Wide-legged suits me well.
But what COLOUR?! grin

ChickenVindaloo2 Sat 23-Sep-17 10:57:18

So twill be in the early evening in Vegas and I'm seeing the show (at 9pm) afterwards.

3luckystars Sat 23-Sep-17 10:57:35

I would wear a black outfit, don't worry about wearing something that shows the tattoos all night, just wear something that you look good in and could lift back and show to her the tattoo when you meet her. (If you want to)

Definitely get excited though!!!!!!

ChickenVindaloo2 Sat 23-Sep-17 10:57:38

I'm between a dress size 12-14 atm.

FritzyMousey Sat 23-Sep-17 10:57:48

Defo like the wide-legged jumpsuit idea

ChickenVindaloo2 Sat 23-Sep-17 10:58:51

Yes, I'm thinking something where I could just lift/lower to show her the tattoo.

I will look thinnest in black.

Trying to work out what will look good when I blow it up to 10 foot wide and have it put on canvas and hung above my mantelpiece when I get home.

AnnaBay Sat 23-Sep-17 10:59:37

Crikey, that's not a dilemma you face every day is it? grin
If it's your style, it calls for a full on glitz and glamour outfit.
Glittery, to the floor, strappy dress with heels. Big hair and dramatic make up.

However, if you are not, I'd go for a strappy, black or dark colour dress with either a statement piece of jewellery or subtle bling. Perhaps something low cut at the back to show off your tattoo.

God knows, but have a fabulous night whatever you wear.
And post a photo on here.

I wonder if Britney is getting excited to meet me, lol! I have a countdown clock thingy on my web-browser.

Shame I can't find out what colour she will be wearing so I can complement/match/not clash...

LokisLover Sat 23-Sep-17 11:01:11

Something like this? Sorry for the huge link!

FritzyMousey Sat 23-Sep-17 11:01:53

Not sure on quality but this looks about right

Cut out jumpsuit?

ChardonnaysPrettySister Sat 23-Sep-17 11:03:53

Just try and imagine what Britney would've wearing and go with that.

LokisLover Sat 23-Sep-17 11:04:02


ChickenVindaloo2 Sat 23-Sep-17 11:04:42

I'm thinking as it's Britney, and as it's Vegas I'll ditch my attempt to follow the "how to look expensive" ie understated/chic threads on here, lol, and go for like black jumpsuit or long dress with A LOT OF SPARKLE!

Thank you guys!!!

ChardonnaysPrettySister Sat 23-Sep-17 11:05:09

And absolutely no wide leg jumpsuit. You are 5 foot 2.
Just no.
