Katy Perry gave us all flashbacks of 2001 by rocking the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards in a VERY old school outfit!

The 'Fireworks' singer was joined by rapper Riff Raff at the LA ceremony this weekend (24 August), and the twosome matched their looks by both sporting head-to-toe denim...

But we had a serious case of déjà vu as soon as we saw their ensembles - who remembers Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake wearing almost identical getups to the American Music Awards back in 2001?!

Pretty much the only differences between K-Pez and Britters' frocks were the bling-tastic silver studs and racy thigh-high slit on Katy's number.

Meanwhile, Riff Raff also amped up the glitz factor by adorning his suit with sparkling studs, adding a shimmering silver top, dazzling necklaces and cornrow braids (although we have to say, we preferred JT's cute curly ringlets).

But, unsurprisingly, their lookalike outfits weren't just a coincidence - of course Katy planned the whole thing.

Taking to Twitter earlier that night, the starlet wrote: "I must admit my outfit is a result of my love for nostalgia and my tumblr addiction #THISISHOWWEDOVMAS."

She later addressed Britney directly, saying: ". @britneyspears I did my best impression, hope u likey!"

Thankfully pop royalty Brit saw the funny side of things, replying to her pal: ".@katyperry Just when I thought the denim dress had bring it back! You looked amazing tonight bb ;)."
