Wearing torn fishnet tights and exposing her underwear, it seems a spell in a psychiatric hospital has done little to change Britney Spears' chaotic lifestyle - or her dress sense.
The troubled star, who checked herself out of the UCLA Medical Centre earlier this week, was spotted taking a cigarette break at the Millennium dance studio in Hollywood.
Looking bedraggled, the bra-less 26-year-old skipped out of rehearsals to smoke and adjust her torn fishnets in full view of waiting photographers.

The former pop princess is currently under the watchful eye of her father Jamie, who has taken charge of his daughter's estimated £20 million estate and personal affairs since she was committed to hospital over a week ago.
Both he and Miss Spears' mother Lynne, are said to be upset their daughter was released from hospital 11 days early after her lawyers overruled doctors' advice.
In a joint statement the pair said: "We are deeply concerned about our daughter's safety and vulnerability and we believe her life is presently at risk."
Both parents, who are divorced, strongly disapprove of her relationship with Birmingham-born photographer Adnan Ghalib.

Miss Spear's recent hospital stay is the latest incident in a series of public meltdowns for the star.
Five weeks ago the Toxic star was stretched into an ambulance after refusing to hand over her children to ex-husband Kevin Federline following a three-hour stand-off with police.
The incident resulted in a hospital stay - and the loss of custody of sons Sean Preston, two, and Jayden James, one.
Then on 28 January her family, with the agreement of record company executives, called in police and an ambulance to re-admit the singer for psychiatric evaluation.
The decision followed numerous displays of erratic and bizarre behaviour by the star which included crying barefoot outside her home.
A restraining order against her former manager Sam Lufti is also in place, alleging that he drugged the star and took over her finances.
Lynne Spears made the declaration in court alleging that Lufti drugged her daughter and cut her phone wires in order to manipulate her.
Britney is said to be desperate to regain control of her estate and finances and is seeking to have a court order granting her father conservatorship overturned. She is battling to regain custody of her sons.
