Love her or hate her, provocative singer Miley Cyrus sure knows how to steal the limelight when it comes to fashion. And we’ve found her most stunning styles to day, including everything from leotards and plastic to couture gowns and breathtaking runway dresses. Take a look; you won’t believe your eyes.
20. Fashion Group International
At a Fashion Group International awards party in New York in 2013, Cyrus slicked back her platinum hair and slipped into a glittering, emerald-green Marc Jacobs gown with a sultry, seriously-plunging back.
19. Bambi Awards
Latex and catsuits can be so confining! So at the 2013 Bambi Awards in Berlin, the over-the-top entertainer instead stunned fans and paparazzi by covering up completely in a loose-hanging glam black vintage Jean Paul Gaultier maxi-dress.
18. 2013 American Music Awards
Cyrus hit the red carpet at the 2013 American Music Awards in a simple and understated Versus Versace white pantsuit. The fact that under the minimalist blazer she was also minimally clothed (naked?) kept things interesting.
17. Z100?s Jingle Ball 2013
Even when this wild child’s look is tame, there’s always a wow factor. At Madison Square Garden in 2013, a subdued Cyrus wore wide-leg pants accented with a neon stripe down each leg, and a sheer top showed off her sexy bra.
16. Beacher’s Madhouse premiere
Cyrus’ vibe was schoolgirl-meets-’90s screen vixen when she hit a Vegas movie premiere in 2013. But a teeny top – threatening to flash far more than her sleek midriff and tattoo – and thigh-skimming dress kept things predictably edgy.
15. 2014 Grammys
The songwriter – notorious for her barely-there wardrobe staples – looked coquettish at a 2014 Grammys bash. Her glam, fuzzy coat covered a white-hawt satin slip, promising a racier look as the night wore on.
14. 2014 MTV Video Music Awards
This slamming two-piece leather biker ensemble by Alexandre Vauthier Couture scored Cyrus a place on the best-dressed list at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards.
13. W Magazine party
Cyrus was a vision in white when she rocked up to a W Magazine party in early 2015. Her Balmain outfit, complete with high-waisted flairs and a tailored cape, looked super chic.
12. MAC launch party
To celebrate her MAC Cosmetics collection in 2015, the ever-changing entertainer dug deep into her daddy’s country music roots and emerged as a saucy urban cowgirl, sporting a sequin-covered denim jacket over a matching bra-top and mini-skirt.
11. 2015 pre-Grammys party
With eyes on a pre-Grammy bash in L.A. in 2015, we all took a lesson from the platinum blond starlet’s playbook: nothing elevates a floor-length dress from safely stylish to drop-dead sexy like a thigh-high split and splashy diamond studs.
10. 2015 Grammys
At the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards in 2015, a couture creation by Alexandre Vauthier – cropped in all the right places – with a plunging back-line and no room for underwear ensured that Cyrus was both head-turningly hot and stunning.
9. Tom Ford fashion show
Cyrus left little to the imagination in a black Tom Ford sheath at the designer’s Autumn/Winter 2015 Womenswear show in L.A. However, intricate lace panels and all-over coverage made the sheer dress as elegant as it was eye-opening.
8. Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party
The dress code was formal, but that didn’t stop Cyrus from rocking a playful jumpsuit at a high-profile AIDS fundraiser/Oscars viewing party in Los Angeles in 2015. Her cool white one-piece was covered in hearts… and floating, dismembered arms!
7. 2015 MET Gala
New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art ball is the place to take fashion risks. And in 2015 Cyrus bucked tradition in a stylish floor-length gown by Alexander Wang. Cut-outs and metal studs gave the look a sexy edge.
6. 2015 amfAR Inspiration Gala
Taking a break from leotards, the multi-faceted singer morphed into a vintage movie star at the amfAR Inspiration Gala in New York in 2015. Her one-off Moschino gown was embellished with a playful bow and over-the-elbow satin gloves.
5. 2015 MTV Video Music Awards
As host of the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, Cyrus buckled into a barely-there metallic gladiator-style frock by Versace. The racy look was topped off with fake, platinum-blond dreadlocks held in place by gilded Greek statue faces.
4. The Tonight Show
Cyrus flexed her high-fashion muscle at an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in 2015. Her head-to-toe Miu Miu ensemble included delicate lace bunny ears and a bright yellow, faux-croc leather skirt.
3. 2015 Vanguard Awards
This diva has been known to flash her assets, but strategically-placed fuchsia flowers – clinging to a glittering net – saved the singer from a shocking reveal at the Los Angeles LGBT Center 46th Anniversary Gala Vanguard Awards in 2015.
2. ONE Campaign and (RED) concert
In any other shade, the structured suit Cyrus wore to a concert celebrating 2015 World AIDS Day might have looked – dare we say it – boring. However, the pink glittery fabric and star-embossed wedges gave it a “Viva Las Vegas” vibe.
1. A Very Murray Christmas premiere
At the 2015 premiere of A Very Murray Christmas in New York, the singer had two large bundles of pale, twisted twine fashioned into buns perched on her head. And with that ’do paired with a sparkling white mini-dress, she looked positively angelic.
