Teen queen turned fashion and pop culture provocateur Miley Cyrus is a style icon in her own right. Having transformed before our eyes from Disney pop princess into a bona fide fashion insider, her recent collaboration with Jeremy Scott is further proof of her fashion prowess and unique style sensibility. She can go from red carpet glam to high street brash and bold fashion in a snap. This is what makes her so exciting, what Miley wears is always a clear reflection of her mood and where she is in her life. It is so transparent and simply thrilling to watch and observe. Let Miley inspire you to take fashion risks and wear things you never thought you would. Buck tradition and break all the rules while keeping chicness top of mind a la Miley.15
Here are my picks of Miley’s top 10 best looks:
Miley does tailored in this red carpet look. Her cutting edge and modern take on the pantsuit involves bright yellow athletic piping and a mandarin collar top with sheer paneling. Wearing a black bra underneath a white top is a very Miley move that shows she’s no red carpet rookie. She can turn even a fashion faux pas into a moment of chicness.
You wouldn’t expect to see Miley in a Canadian tuxedo (read: denim on denim look), and yet here she is pulling it off excellently and putting her own twist to it, of course. The long white talons, royal blue minimalist sandals, and her spiky bleached blonde hair are outfit add-ons that are so Miley.
A matching full tea skirt and crop top make for a ladylike ensemble. However, black and white perforated mesh detailing add a definitely daring spin on the matching set trend. I also love how Miley styled this look simply, opting to let these striking separates take center stage and keep the accessories and beauty look at a minimum.
This casual street style look is signature Miley. Youthful, playful, and fun, the Converse sneaks, oversized white tee and flannel shirt combo is a little bit country and a little bit rock n’ roll. Just like Miley. Layered and chunky gold bling, a messy top knot, oval sunnies, and a black leather studded carryall make this the quintessential young Hollywood pavement pounding outfit.
This is the look that best captures Miley’s style of the moment. A little bit more grown up and polished, and plenty more fashion forward, this monochromatic look has elements of street like a leather motorcycle jacket and chunky heeled creepers that blend with classic black pieces for a stunning evening look.
Want inspiration on how to style your graphic tee? Look no further than this look from Miley. A gilded satchel, leather mini skirt, and layered neck candy upgrade her tee from casual to an outfit fit for a night out or maybe a concert date. Take note of the extreme side part, and how a simple styling trick can have a huge difference in the overall vibe of your look.
Now while this red carpet look may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it perfectly captures Miley’s no holds barred, take no prisoners view on fashion. She is obviously going to have a great time wearing this look, and at the end of the day it’s how your clothes make you feel that truly matters. It’s such a provocative look that still manages to look noteworthy, I love the embellishments and the color and texture it adds to the look.
All white for the summer means extreme distressed jeans and cropped tops for Miley. With some chunky chain bling and creepers, she personalizes this all white look and gives it her touch of street style and funk.
She wowed everyone in this red carpet look for this year’s VMA Awards. Equal parts edgy, chic, and incredibly fashion forward, this all leather ensemble is just what you would expect from Miley on a red carpet event. It’s young and fun while still looking sophisticated, and reveals just the right amount of skin. The metallic sandal is a great footwear choice that nicely rounds out this A plus red carpet style.
Miley can go glam too. With slicked back hair, smoky eyes, and a splendid glittering column gown, it certainly displays her penchant for bold look-at-me styles. This gown is feminine and yet the green sequins elevates it from your traditional evening gown. The halter neckline is an excellent detail too.
Which out of these looks bowled you over? Don’t you just love how Miley is such a fashion chameleon?
