This outfit should perhaps be known as the midcomeback dress. Britney Spears, attending a music-awards ceremony after a rough couple of years, could be making several statements here, some of them quite melancholy. "I have forgotten my pants," for example, or "I lost all my mirrors." Or, quite possibly, her bodysuit and sheer overlay are meant to suggest that she's almost making it, or that she simply does not care what you think of her. In any case, while it's not the most flattering thing she has ever worn, the outfit showed she is not going out of her way to avoid the spotlight.
