We've got to give Katy Perry and Riff Raff credit for one thing: They know how to make fashion news.

Every pop culture junkie's head exploded last night at the sight of the "Roar" singer and her VMAs date rocking the most recognizable red carpet couples costume of all timeBritney Spears and Justin Timberlake's 2001 American Music Awards attire.

Brit's reaction to the throwback: "Just when I thought the denim dress had retired...you bring it back!" Our reaction: Wrong. It should have been retired.

And yet we're still completely obsessed with this surprise homage. The "Teenage Dream" singer's Atelier Versace gown brings us right back to our own teenage dreams of wearing a couples costume with J.T.

Unfortunately, Katy's date doesn't quite stack up (holy sequined tank top!) but both mixed denim strapless styles on the ladies are amazing: tacky, ridiculous and way too heavy for August in LAbut amazing.

Here's hoping Britney's tweet of approval means a duet is on the horizon. They could both wear each other's classic costumes! Katy in the snake suit and Brit in the cupcake bra! Please make it happen, music gods.

But until then, all hail the originals in this battle. Who's with us?
