Britney Spears's Latest 'X Factor' Look: Daisy Dukes, Sequins ... and Zebra Print?

What goes up, must come down — at least that’s the case for Britney Spears‘s X Factor style.

Though our love for the pop icon will never wither, we can’t seem to figure out what’s going in the wardrobe department over at her upcoming FOX show.

Style-wise, the judge started the season strong, showing off her toned bod in a skin-tight, hot-pink Brian Lichtenberg mini, followed by a step in a high-fashion direction: an Alaïa fit-and-flare frock.

And earlier this week, Spears continued her cute streak in on-trend neon-pink skinnies offset with a cream blazer and a smokey eye (left). But then, the star took a total step back. She was spotted at the Miami auditions Thursday (right) in leather-like Bleulab Daisy Dukes, a Studio 54-esque sparkly Joe’s tank and a zebra-print cosmetic bag (we assume that wasn’t part of the outfit, but worth noting nonetheless). A plus? Her hair looked great.

We’re hoping that this less-than-amazing outfit is just a minor hiccup for Spears and she’ll get it right next time. Our advice: More Alaïa, less sparkle! Tell us: What do you think of Spears’s X Factor style?

I think she looks fine, but who at HuffPost and its departments love her so much? They act like Britney, Madonna, and Rihanna are the only entertainers to report on every damn week! We all know they’re not singers so I won’t call them that. Can you focus on other people please?

I think she looks fine. It’s Miami for God’s sake. She looks incredible, and I wish people weren’t so hard on her. She has tried so hard in getting healthy, and to me, she is succeeding.

I think you need to get off her case. Why must every person dress to the 9’s every second. Regardless of what reality show they are on, they are surely allowed comfort and not have to look like they are on the red carpet.

Wow, I’m surprised the writer –Jennifer Cress is hating so much. Britney looks great. Jennifer Lopez wore an almost identical outfit, just different color on American Idol and no one had a problem with it. Sometimes I think you style people don’t get it.
