When it comes to walking like an Egyptian, Britney Spears has some big – and stylish – shoes to fill.

The pop star, 30, followed in the footsteps of the late Elizabeth Taylor and, more recently, Lindsay Lohan for a photo shoot touting Fantasy Twist, her new Elizabeth Arden fragrance that arrives in stores Sept. 1.

"Channeling my inner Cleopatra today," she Tweeted Thursday, as she took a break from the X Factor taping to slip into her Queen of the Nile attire.

Spears's take on the iconic role seems to be more natural, and she stays away from a black choppy wig in a picture she posted. But how does she compare to Taylor, who smoldered on the big screen with Richard Burton in 1963, and Lohan, who piled on the eye makeup for Lifetime's upcoming Liz & Dick biopic?
