Sometimes, you don’t realize how great a pop princess’ wardrobe is and was until you see it on another famous person’s body. This is one of those times.

On Sunday (Apr. 26, 2015), Penelope Cruz blessed the city of Rome, Italy with all her glory when she reported for duty on the set of Zoolander 2.

Clad in a form-fitting red jumpsuit, the 40-year-old actress filmed some late night scenes with Ben Stiller (who is also serving as director), Owen Wilson, and a motorcycle.

Cruz officially joined the cast, which also includes Kristen Wiig, Will Ferrell, and Christine Taylor, earlier this month when Stiller posted this epic throwback:

With the sight of Cruz’s red hot costume from the weekend, we couldn’t help but think of Britney Spears and her classic jumpsuit from 2000, when she made that epic music video for “Oops!…I Did It Again.” (Do yourself a favor and celebrate the song’s 15th anniversary with our piece, here).

So we gotta ask, who rocks the red jumpsuit better: Penelope Cruz or Britney Spears (2000)?
