Britney Spears kicked off her Femme Fatale tour with Nicki Minaj last night in Sacramento, California, and according to early reviews, it’s one hell of a show. We got a sneak peek at some of the costumes we can expect to see on the tour, but we didn’t see this one coming — “Seven Year Itch” Marilyn Monroe is our favorite! And the dancers-as-paparazzi getting the upskirt are a classy touch.

Britney’s channeled Marilyn before (see: her supersexy 2003 cover of Esquire magazine), and we have to say it totally works for her. Sometimes you don’t need a crazy sequined two-piece with pipe cleaners and bottle rockets hanging off of it just to sing your song. (No offense, Lady Gaga — that’s probably your next award show outfit.) Sometimes all you need is a simple white dress…paired with fishnets and black stiletto boots, obvs.
