The mother of three chose not to show as much flesh as Britney did when she wore the lace number back in 2001 and opted to wear a black bralet and black mini skirt underneath.
She teamed the dress with a pair of black heels and wore her golden locks down in her natural curls.
Britney originally wore the lace ensemble which was created by Dolce and Gabbana to the MTV Video Music Awards in New York.

Mel B touched down in London at the start of the month fueling reports that the Spice Girls will be performing at the London 2012 Olympic Games closing ceremony this Sunday.
Although there has been no official confirmation of the appearance, Victoria Beckham seemed to verify the rumours last week when she tweeted a picture of a diamante-encrusted microphone.
Alongside the photograph, she wrote: 'Look what I found!! X vb'.
Sources have confirmed to MailOnline that the Spice Girls – also featuring Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and Melanie Chisholm – will be singing at the closing concert on August 12.
The news came after Mel C said she would take it as a personal snub if they were omitted from the line-up.
She said: 'I’d be really upset if the Spice Girls weren’t included in the Olympics, whether it be the opening or closing ceremonies or any other playlists, because I think we absolutely represented Britain in the 90s.
'We literally flew the flag – and Geri even wore it – around the globe.'
