In August 2012, Miley Cyrus lobbed off her locks, which were getting progressively shorter. Still, it was a drastic change. When she shed her strands, she also ditched her Disney image. In the months since, the singer has developed a head-turning fashion sense.
Some of her looks slay — her white, backless dress during Grammy season and white-blonde faux hawk wereuh-maze — while others were just plain out there, like that unspeakable sweatpants-jeans hybrid. Have those been burned yet? There is no way she won’t look back and ask, “WTF was I thinking?” thanks to that fashion abomination.
But for the most part, Cyrus has showed off some winning looks.
We’ve assembled her 22 most memorable — note: not “best” and in no particular order! — looks since the chop heard ’round the pop world. It’s an assemblage of her post-cut couture, if you will.
No shortage of Chanel in Miley’s closet.
Bright blonde bouffant, double sideboob and a sheer black dress – what a trio at the 2012 VMAs.
Uh, one of these things is not like the other and that should never be the case with pant legs. She needed a tailor, since she paired one skinny leg with a wide one. What is it with her and pants? At least she wears ’em more often than Lady Gaga.
A $300 tee and a leather micro-mini, with silver and gold bling screams, “ROCK STAR!”
Fur, leather and creepers? Miley went glam and punk!
She took a classic pencil shape and twisted it with metallic silver fabric. This was right after she chopped her locks.
Cutout chic and shorter hair.
Her sheer, black Pucci gown was a grower — it was weird at first, but progressively won us over. Those are boots underneath.
’70s chic in a low-cut, crimson jumpsuit!
She showed her Disney roots (and her follicular ones) with Mickey on her chest as she rocked the modern pinup look.
Winter white Azzaro — covered up in front…
…baring all in the back.
Her black, fishnet-style Marc Jacobs gown at the Met Gala took the event’s ‘punk’ theme too literally. Plus, she coulda put someone’s eye out with those strand spikes.
A strapless jumpsuit? Impossibly chic, even if she overdid it with white face powder.
Her black and white crocheted Balmain jumpsuit was way too court jester-y.
Let’s never speak of these again…
In vintage Versace, Miley rocked dominatrix chic.
Channeling the ’70s again in a patchwork, leather Proenza Schouler dress.
Not our favorite Miley look…
She ditched couture for a tight and bejeweled outfit at the 2013 VMAs.
Glittery and green in Marc Jacobs.
Rap chic…wait, this is a t-shirt turned into a “dress.” Not chic.
