Miley Cyrus killed it onÂ Saturday Night LiveÂ this weekend. And by it, I do not mean our innocence or our sense of wonder or our country’s sense of right and wrong. By it, I meanÂ it.Â Her sketches made me laugh. Not all of them, but enough of them that I ended the episode pretty impressed with her. Say what you will about Miley Cyrus (and I’ve personally said a whole lot), but she put on a memorable show. And memorable for the right reasons this time. I know I’m not the only one with “We Can Stop” stuck in my head right now.
However, after killing it, she went to an SNLÂ after party at STK Steakhouse dressed in her see-through outfit from her “Wrecking Ball” performance earlier in the evening. (You can see the full outfit in all its sheer glory right here.) Even though STK Steakhouse’s motto is “not your daddy’s steakhouse,” I still think she could’ve put on a different outfit. Oh and I shit you not, that line is front and center on their website as we speak.
Unlike many people, I’m not so much offended by the see-throughy-ness of her outfit, but by the overall look. Lots of people pull off sheer clothing every single day. Cate Blanchett just did it last week. But Miley does it in a way that makes me worry that there’s not enough lighting in her dressing room. Or in her individual eyeballs.
Two weeks ago she showed up at the iHeartRadio Music Festival wearing an oversized hairnet and pasties. And this weekend she showed up at the after party wearing a see-through oversized sports-like jersey (Is Poison a team? I won’t pretend to know), underwear, a bra and your grandfather’s saddle shoes. I’m no fashionista, or even a maxxinista, but I’ll still get out my soapbox and say this isn’t stylish or flattering or alluring or whatever it is that Miley is going for. It looks like something a child would wear to sleep. Or what Miley Cyrus would wake up in if she’s acting in aÂ Freaky FridayÂ remake where she trades bodies with a football player. I just don’t get it.Â Then again, maybe that’s the point. To confuse us so much that we don’t even notice when she takes over the world, dressed in mesh and dressed only in mesh.
