'Hellcats' star Aly Michalka -- channeling Christina Aguilera circa 1999?

Aly Michalka inspired by Christina Aguilera circa 1999?

Fashions have a tendency to come full circle, and though "Burlesque" star Christina Aguilera might have matured beyond the pop princess wardrobe of her "Genie in a Bottle" days, that doesn't mean others can't pick it up and run with it.

Witness the photos above. At left is Aguilera in 1999. At right, check out Aly Michalka (the blond) from the CW's cheerleader drama "Hellcats."

Light blond wavy-curly hair? Check. Midriff-baring logo top? Check. (Yes, technically Michalka is in character and wearing a uniform, and Xtina is just being herself, but somehow that makes it even better.)

Tell us in comments if you see the resemblance, and who you think rocks the look better.


Courtney Love plus Britney Spears equals Lady Gaga?

Josh Duhamel and Joran van der Sloot -- creepy good or creepy bad?
