She was on screen for less than four minutes, but Britney Spears managed an impressive eight costume changes during her highly anticipated television return. The troubled pop star polished up her act for her guest spot on sitcom How I Met Your Mother ... The show's stylists banished her personal wardrobe of scuffed knee-high boots, ripped fishnet stockings, cut-off denim hotpants and see-though tops, in favour of a more demure, feminine look. And now six items worn by the star during the show are going under the hammer for charity on auction site seenon.com, with her crème Nanette Lepore cardigan with blue beaded flowers leading the bidding at US$3,001.00 with still five days to go. More than 10 million viewers tuned in to watch the star, drawing the show's highest-ever ratings. She played a love-struck receptionist in a tattoo-removal clinic who falls for the main character Ted.
Each of the six items up for auction can be viewed and bid on HERE. I fully expect that each of these items will fetch a pretty penny for the NRDC ... if you consider that Britney's guest starring spot won the sitcom its highest ratings ever in addition to the high demand that her wardrobe is garnering in this auction, well, I think it's safe to say that Britney's popularity (even tho it may have waned a bit in recent months) is back on track. I would expect nothing less from our dear Britney. [Source]
