I just didn't see it coming but, oh boy, am I glad it happened: Iggy Azalea and Britney Spears made a music video together! Apologies for my girlish glee, but there was no doubt in my mind that this was going to be one stylish vid and now I can't stop lusting after Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea "Pretty Girls" style (reminiscent of the '80s, of course). We became aware that the duo would bring out a music video for their new track when we first heard about their melodic collaboration, and I knew it would be good — but I just didn't expect it to be that good.
The plot follows a Barbie-like Britney and her new friend Iggy, an alien who crash landed into Spears' swimming pool, and the mischievous Valley girl escapades they embark upon with Azalea's magical alien powers. Alien Azalea manages to accidentally override an ATM so that money rains down on the women, she turns water pink, and uses her eyes to zap Spears' retro phone into a modern touch screen mobile. Of course the video also includes classic Spears dance scenes with hunky guys and girls dancing around her.
And the styling is to die for. "Pretty Girls" totally revamps 1980s style with crimped hair, bright lipsticks, and oversized earrings aplenty. If you, too, are an '80s kid, love Azalea and Spears, or miss the 1980s and its far out fashions, here's how to get "Pretty Girls" style.
The Valley Barbie Doll
Here Spears is seen lounging in her garden presumably post workout. She's got her boom box, a drink complete with a curly straw, and she's filing her nails... What a hard life! In this scene, Spears wears a bright pink leotard/swimsuit and sassy cat eye glasses.

The Double Denim
I don't know how she does it but Azalea manages to rock one of my most despised trends: double denim. She wears both denim garments in short versions, which make the trend young and fresh instead of old and outdated. Plus, the clever pairing with the soft, baby pink shade and crimped hair gives the outfit fabulous Clueless vibes and also makes her look like the fictional fifth member of the Mean Girls gang who travelled back in time to the 1980s.
