Believe it or not, this is Britney Spears! Back then she was just lil' Britney Jean Spears from Kentwood, y'all. The year was 1998, and our favorite down-home Louisiana girl donned her finest button-up cardigan and pearly white eye shadow (and the most '90s-est brown-toned lipstick EVER) for her first big-time appearance at the Z100 Jingle Ball. All we can say is, wow, what a difference 13 years makes...

Since you seemed to love our Best Of Old-School Britney Spears photo gallery so much, we decided to dig through our archives to see what other gems we could uncover. And seriously? You guys. Are going. To DIE. Seriously, some of these photos of Britney are not only hilarious (see: oversize tennis ball below), but they're also making us a little nostalgic. But in a good, "I'm gonna bust out my copy of ...Baby One More Time" way.

Here Brit's all, "I won an award, y'all! Glad I wore these totally '90s yellow shades to look professional while accepting it!" This also might be her Baby Spice impression.

I have one guess as to what Britney's thinking about during this press conference -- Justin Timberlake. :( Ah, the good old days.

How thankful do you think Britney Spears is that she calls the shots at photo shoots these days? "No more oversized tennis balls EVAR!!!"
