It's ‘90s pop versus…more ‘90s pop!

But which queen of the tweens will win when it comes to this Dolce & Gabbana sheer long-sleeved dress?

When Scary Spice Melanie Brown stepped out on Aug. 8 for a date night with her producer hubby, she was all legs and fierce waves. She paired the low-cut scalloped hem with black pumps and the afterglow of someone who's just had a comeback via the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony with old pals the Spice Girls.

And while Mel B looked more sexy than scary, there was no mistaking where we'd seen that design before, because it's sooo 11 years ago!

Circa Britney Spears at age 19 when she wore the barely-there dress to the MTV Video Music Awards on Sept. 6, 2001. The pop princess showed us everything and her boy shorts, as she paired the look with black strappy sandals and her signature deer in the headlights gaze. Later that night she'd change into a bikini with live snake neck wrap for a performance of, "I'm a Slave for You."

It seems to us that Brit-Brit owns this look, even though we love how the lace highlights Mel B's gams and skin.

What do you think, when it comes to this Dolce & Gabbana dress, who wore it best?
