Britney and Gwen Work The Necktie Look -- Will You?

12/06/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

Women wearing neckties comes back in style every few years — Diane Keaton in Annie Hall, Shannen Doherty in Beverly Hills 90210 — and that time seems to have come once again. Britney Spears broke out her tie (and her all satin-outfit) while clubbing with new BFF Paris Hilton in Las Vegas, while Gwen Stefani wore hers to a promotional event for her new record in Canada. We’ve also spotted Janet Jackson, Fergie and Jennifer Love Hewitt rocking ties lately, too. Tell us: Will you wear ties? Do you think they’re sophisticated or silly?

I like the ties- they are playful and fun. I think Britney overdid her look with too much satin… and I won’t even get into those awful extensions! Gwen’s tie looks a little better, but can we have some real hair already? Definitely think some girls can really make this look work- I would even give it a try!

Normally i wouldnt pick on brit. Why because its just plain obvious. The tie style fits gwen, pretty much anything does. She’s fun flirty and unique which is more than i can say for most of hollywood. She sets trends and she doesnt follow them. Gwen can even make a tie on a woman look classy and feminine. Brit on the other hand, looks like she chose her outfit out of k-feds closet. Forget the gum its a bad picture and shes happy and laughing get over it. She looks sloppy and like she didnt try at all. I dont prefer gwens hair but as long as shes stays gwen who cares. sorry brit but the “comeback” opportunity is quickly passing you by, in fact its running the other way.

I think they both look silly. But they always BOTH look ridiculous most of the time. Neither of them have any style. Gwen tries way to hard to be different,but she just looks stupid.

I was so not even go there as the tie things has been done and it was over played when Avril did it and everyone and there punk look did it. I won’t be wearing one anytime soon as they are so uncomfortable.

I wouldn’t wear this, but Gwen always looks cool. Britney always looks like an idiot. With a tie or with out.

ok – did the tie thing back in the 80’s. If the 80’s are cool – then I think I’m going to throw up.

Ms. Spears is such a cow. I wish Gwen would tone it down a bit- she’s really pretty but the hair and crazy outfits stand out way more than her pretty face. As for Brit- I wish she would just go away. She isnt classy and she sure as hell isn’t trying to win any ‘Mother of the Year’ awards.

What the heck happened to Gwen? She used to be so stylish and cool. Now she just looks more and more ridiculous every time I see her!

ouch, it hurts my eyes to see britney next to gewn. style-wise they are worlds apart. gwen can carry off anything and will look stylish, while britney will look like trailer-trash, no matter how many ties she wears. and damn, pls someone cut of her bad extensions, it’s terrible!

andrea on

i beg to differ. i disagree that gwen can pull anything off. she looks absolutely ridiculous every time i see her. her outfits are outrageous and if you see just an average person walking on the street looking like that.. most people would laugh. i like her makeup in this picture, but the hair, my gosh. i’m assuming it’s a wig? if not, it sure as heck looks like one, and a bad one at that.
