If you've just woken up from a months-long Ambien trip, let me fill you in on Britney Spears' latest doings: The pop star recently turned 32 years old, released a new album (to mostly terrible reviews) and is gearing up for the debut of her Las Vegas residency. Also, her song "Work Bitch" played as the soundtrack at the Prada Spring 2014 runway show (Miuccia Prada has the Midas Touch for cultural relevance). Yes, the formerly fallen star has emerged from her twenties as a confident, powerful woman. Your inner 6th grader must be so proud. Put on your flared jeans, baby — Britney Spears is back!
In that vein, here she is on the cover of InStyle's January 2014 Issue, wearing Dior. "This Is YOUR Year!" reads the accompanying caption, speaking at once to the viewer and to Britney herself, who appears happy, smiling and slathered in Photoshop effects. Our year, indeed.
