There are not a few who have proclaimed that '

Motomami

', by

Rosalía

, is the best album of the year.

There are not a few, either, who have crowded into

Almería for the start of Motomami World Tour

,

the long-awaited world tour of the Catalan diva.

Heat, 'Saoko' to start with and a look

that inevitably reminds one of the

Britney Spears of the 90s

, another

diva

(of pop, in this case) in her own right.

Another woman who, like Rosalía,

set a trend and created her own aesthetic glossary

that drank from the feeling of the moment.

So it is as poetic justice that both universes have merged as the fact that Rosalía has stood on the Almeria stage with

a pleated skirt and braids

.

'...Baby One More Time'.

gtres

Rosalía chose an

electric blue and tight sweater

in which highly structured and visible

shoulder pads

stand out , very much in line with the helmet and biker clothes that are the aesthetic leitmotif of the album.

The

boots

, also in deep blue and above the knee, also seemed to drink from the same visual source, but the

references to the late 90s and early 2000s

and that aesthetic that helped define Britney concert after concert

it is both on the skirt and on the belt.

Spears 's

schoolgirl

look in her '...Baby One More Time'

continues to be revisited

, and while the college aesthetic has gone through different filters, including dark romantic or formal (as in the

spring Miu Miu show

-summer 2022

), the truth is that the return of the sexy of that time has once again made the low-rise, pleated miniskirts directly related to

that (so thorny) idea of ​​sexuality linked to innocence.

However, in 2022, Rosalía breaks away from that naive air and adds another series of

harsher and more forceful nuances,

in line with the reappropriation discourse:

it is no longer imposition, but pleasure

.

Where are the limits of self-imposition due to context and free will is something that may never be answered, but the power in Rosalía makes think of this type of skirts in a way that is

more Motomami than 'Lolita'.

This idea also helps, and a lot, the fact that the miniskirt appears next to a

double XL belt with four buckles

, an accessory that once again adds hardness to the outfit while sinking its roots in the look of two decades ago, in the one that the belts seemed almost a continuation of the minimal skirts.

Spears, and maybe a friend of yours (and if not, it was you), also took him.

Just like the

two braids,

a hairstyle associated with adolescence and the schoolboy look that Rosalía once again decontextualized by increasing their length... And then

cutting them straight off.

Maybe there is another veiled reference to Britney.

Although there is still another: the nails.

gtres

Rosalía, without manicure: the curious detail

It is not the first time that Rosalía dispenses with those extreme

, very long and decorated nails that were a hallmark of 'beauty' at the beginning of her career and on the tour of

'El mal querer'.

We already saw her at the party that Chanel organized for Penelope at MoMa at the end of 2021, showing off at the

short nails photocall

.

And that

Britney also wore them like this in the aforementioned video clip

is one of those coincidences in which we love to believe.

It seems that the singer is contrary in this trend, we already know that if there is a summer beauty trend above all, it is to wear a manicure in bright colors (pink, orange or white) and decorated 'to the French' or with gradients and waves.
