Miley Cyrus is obviously no longer a Disney princess, but did she have to go so far off that base? Apparently so, as evidenced by her escapades on stage while wearing next to nothing at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) 2013. The look happened almost a week ago but is still trending across the Internet. In fact, according to E! Online on Aug. 31, the 20-year-old star hit a milestone with this evolution of her sartorial image, and not necessarily in a good way.
Witness the Miley of many yesterdays, a sweet little tween who liked to rock carefully chosen rags that say retro in the hippie realm, circa 1971.
Then, a bit later, Cyrus upped her game a little to go glam at the Teen Choice Awards. E! Online remembers that event well because Miley Cyrus was asked what designer she was wearing and the cute celebrity had no idea.
Fast forward to her 2008 MTV VMAs look when she was teetering around on Louboutins and looking luscious in Zac Posen, as E! pointed out.
Meanwhile, at age 17 at the 2010 premiere of her movie, “The Last Song,” with love and co-star Liam Hemworth, Miley was smiley as she posed in a sexy Thomas Wylde leather dress that was minus one shoulder.
So, with all that said, take a look at all the looks in this Examiner list depicting Miley Cyrus as her fashion favorites move from retro hippie to nude underwear, all while going public in a very big way.
