Any time we see an image of Kelly Kapowski, er, Tiffani Thiessen, we IMMEDIATELY start singing the Saved By The Bell theme song. (“When I wake up in the morning and the alarm gives out a warning, I don’t think I’ll ever make it on time!” You can finish the rest. Obviously.) So when we spotted Justin Bieber at the MuchMusic Awards last night sporting Zack Morris’ main squeeze on his chest, we knew we needed to find out where this shirt was from A.S.A.P. Luckily, we spotted it at Urban Outfitters! Fully stocked! For only $24! (Yeah, yeah, you can thank us later.)
We’re smitten by the Biebs adorable sense of humor and homage to an AMAZING television show (perhaps one of the BEST in history), but what really made us love this tee is how he styled it in his ensemble! He dressed up his Saved By The Bell shirt with a white D&G blazer, gray jeans, silver sword necklace, pearl bracelet, tortoiseshell sunglasses, and red pocket hanky for a pop of color. Like a true gentleman, with a true lady on his chest. We’re also obsessed with his disheveled hair (so cute!) and the fact that one of our FAVE teenage heartthrobs is wearing a former teenage heartthrob on his chest while dating his current teenage heartthrob girlfriend Selena Gomez. WHEW. This is all WAY too meta, but we’re sure Selena isn’t too upset at JB’s public display of affection for Ms. Kapowski. I mean, it’s nearly IMPOSSIBLE to not immediately fall in love with a girl who wears mom jeans with suspenders and a crop top. Also, her hair moved as a single, stationary organism, and that’s pretty dreamy.
Our one question: Was the Beebs even alive during the SBTB heyday? (Answer: No.) Also, wouldn’t it be more fitting for him to reference Degrassi instead?
