UniqueOutrageous. Stylish?

When talking about the "new" Miley Cyrus, one thing is for sure...
This girl Can't be Tamed. Pun intended.

This has clearly been demonstrated through her actions, but also 
her clothing choices.

Shall we take a scroll down memory lane?

We Shall!

Ok, so we first met Miley in 2006 on the premier of Hannah Montana!

So cute and innocent!
 Here, Miley is rocking a plaid blazer over  what looks like a baby blue, zip-up sweater which she paired with some good ol' blue jeans.

Still cute, but a little less innocent in her strapless, red mini dress and sparkling silver Louboutins!

For the Oscars, Miley showed up in a beautiful Zuhair Murad dress. 
It was a light tan, tiered dress with mermaid-like scallops and beading.

And now for my all-time favorite...

Roberto Cavalli has done it again!
Who would have thought a gray dress could be so beautiful and hypnotizing?
Not me! 

 This is one of the last memories I have of the "old Miley", so to speak. 
It's very bitter-sweet if you ask me.

wait for it.....

It happens to the best of us... break-ups, that is.

Sometimes really good things come out of a bad situation.

Sometimes they just get worse... 

But who's to judge? In my eyes, Miley came out on top (of a wrecking ball). Although she may not be everyone's cup of tea, she certainly knows how to get attention! Whether the attention is good or bad, people can't seem to get enough of her and her quirky outfits. 

Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke VMAs 2013

Anywho... Let's take a look at some of Miley's most memorable outfits to date!

Miley Cyrus Met Gala 2013

Not long after her VMA performance with Robin Thicke, Miley showed up to the Met Gala in a netted gown by Marc Jacobs. Her quirky hair made this look very memorable even for the Met Gala which is filled with "quirky" outfits worn by celebrities.

and now some outfits from her Bangerz Tour:

Cyrus rides an oversized hotdog during the Bangerz Tour opening concert in Vancouver, Canada.

As you can see, there is nothing "quiet" or boring about her outfit choices. Yes, these are the outfits she chose for her world tour, but her everyday clothing is often very "loud" as well. 

Do I consider Miley Cyrus a fashion icon?

In a way, yes.

Merriam Webster's dictionary definition of an icon is as follows: 

a person or thing regarded as a representative symbol of something.

I believe Miley dresses in such a way that is true to herself. She often blatantly spells out how she is feeling or what she believes in on her clothing (as seen above). I think Miley Cyrus represents a generation of people being able to be whoever and whatever they want to be, with no judgement involved. In a weird way, I feel she is a symbol of modern day freedom. 

As crazy as she may seem, Miley Cyrus has truly become associated with the way that she dresses.

Her rebellious style is one with her rebellious attitude.

It is without a doubt that Miley has got to experience the 'best of both worlds'. Not only on her hit t.v. show, but also in real life. 

Miley has gone from the cute, girl next door role model to almost the complete opposite in just a couple of  years. Miley's fashion has evolved with her and it is without a doubt extremely fashionating... I mean fascinating!

  1. I am not sure Miley Cyrus qualifies as a historical figure but I'll buy the icon argument! It is interesting to consider parallels between her and others, like Madonna. Also, it is worth thinking about the relationship between her and Jeremy Scott.
