Anyone who thinks Britney Spears' best days are behind her is sorely, sorely mistaken.

The "Circus" singer walked the red carpet at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards looking absolutely amazing — so amazing, in fact, that we had to double-check and make sure these photos weren't from 2002 instead of 2016.

Spears slayed in a black lace Reem Acra mini, complete with sheer sleeves, a train and plenty of embellishment. She completed the look with tall black caged heels and jewels from Jacob and Co.

Does the dress look a little familiar? It stood out right away because it reminds us of the teensy lace mini Spears wore to the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards.

Of course, it's not the same dress, but 2002 Britney and 2016 Britney look almost identical — complete with big blonde extensions.

It's wonderful to see Spears looking so healthy and confident after the rough years she's had. She hasn't been shy about posting bikini photos and dance pictures on Instagram — and why shouldn't she? Her long-running Las Vegas residency definitely agrees with her, and it shows.
