Destiny Hope better known as Miley of the order Cyrus is a strange creature. The Miley is able to change her appearance at will and adapt her look to whatever suits her at the moment. She attracts pray by drawing them in with her catchy songs and endearing southern accent only to lobotomize the pop culture portions of their brains with outrageous award show performances and “edgy” outfits. The cycle of The Miley’s attack continues until her prey are lulled into a Cyrus-induced coma due to pure over-saturation.
But how did we get to this point? How did we go from Hannah Montana to Latex Panties McGee? And what’s next? One way of exploring the evolution of Miley is to study her wardrobe decisions. She perfected the teeny bopper look in her Disney days, made her way to a glamorous high point, and then, to use Miley’s own words, became “a strategic hot mess.” Let’s take a look.

Nothing makes seven years seem longer than looking at old pictures of Miley Cyrus. This was in 2006 so she was fourteen. She's so cute! And so different looking WHICH IS TOTALLY FINE. I'm pretty sure that Miley thinks everyone in the media thinks she should still look like Hannah Montana, so just to be clear, I'm not saying that.
Didn't we all wear denim skirts with leggings that stopped mid-shin in 2007? I know I did. And that is about where the similarities end between myself and Miley Cyrus.

The tongue! The tongue is approaching! And the peace sign has become a "rock and roll oh yeah!" sign. As for the outfit, this looks like what an anime character should be wearing, but since she's only fifteen here, I'll accept it. At this point she was rebelling in a me-and-Hannah-aren't-the-same-person sort of way. Nowadays... well, I think she still might be doing that. Girl, it's cool. I think we all understand at this point.
If we're going to talk about inappropriate performance outfits, it's only right we feature one overly appropriate one as well. This is clearly at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
This dress is appropriate, ny normal person could conceivably wear it, and, most importantly, it's not her current favorite outfit of pasties with a net over them. P.S: Oh hey, Demi!
Remember when we thought THIS was her not wearing clothes? It was a simpler time. An age of innocence, if you will.
First of all, I love this dress even with the sheer panel of thigh. Second of all, I am entertained by how through the course of their relationship, Liam looks exactly the same (as most people do) and Miley looks COMPLETELY different. I imagine he uses the words, "whoa," "what" and "happened" a lot.
Try to picture her wearing this now. I dare you. She should wear this dress with the foam finger and Scary Spice hair for Halloween. If anyone asks what she is, she will simply say, "an amalgamation of self" and silently walk away.
I was trying to spot the moment when she made the big switch to cray cray and there doesn't seem to be an exact time. Her performance outfits became more scandalous and her casual clothes punkier overtime. The grandest statement I can make on it all is: The shorter the hair, the lesser the pants.
...And the more the fishnetting.
And I think we all know what happened from there. The tongue made it's full appearance. The under butt exposed itself. The twerking began and we can't stop it. But what's next? She's not someone like Lady Gaga, where we've known her to be various amounts of out there all along. Miley's been constantly rebelling-- seemingly against only herself. How do you rebel against nude wrecking ball riding? Lots and lots of clothes? Does the next Miley sing only Celine Dion style ballads and wear vintage Chanel suits? Maybe she'll revert back to her tween years, ironically of course, and wear only deadstock from Limited Too.
What do you think? Predict the next Miley!
