You can all go home because Louisa Johnson just won Halloween.

The former X Factor winner (19) paid homage to Britney Spears in the way only a teenage pop princess in the making with a six pack can: wearing a near identical replica to Spears' iconic I'm A Slave For You performance at the 2001 MTV VMAs, sadly, minus the boa constrictor. Johnson went all out, drawing attention to a striking similarity between the two we never noticed before.

The singer was one of the celebrity guests at the Kiss house Party at Wembley Arena, including Rita Ora as Poison Ivy and Love Island's Olivia Buckland as some sort of gothic mermaid.

We've seen countless attempts to recreate Britney's inspiring early career ensembles from her Baby One More Time school uniform and her Oops I Did It Again red leather catsuit, but this is one of the toughest looks to pull off, so we're declaring Louisa the early winner of celebrity Halloween costumes.
