She may have started off wearing Disney Channel-approved outfits, but these days, Miley Cyrus is making all the fashion decisions for herself. Since cutting off her hair and developing her sound, Miley has stuck to her guns (even when called out) and presented a crafty hodgepodge of ideas in her wardrobe.
She's surprisingly self-aware, too, and understands that most people (like this adorable lady on her Instagram) may find her "underdressed."
For me, though, I look at Miley as someone who is always trying to entertain while also being true to herself, so let's break down some of the memorable garb that made people look twice. Because I have absolutely no knowledge of fashion or, y'know, whatever else is happening here, I'm going to name these outfits as if they were episodes of Friends.
The One Where Drake Guest Stars
They run through the 6 with their woes.
The One with The Right to Bear Arms
Miley's a firm believer in this interpretation of the Second Amendment.
The One with Miley's First Joint
It was a pivotal moment in her personal and artistic life.
The One with the Impromptu Easter Egg Hunt
She inspired the movie Mad Max: Fury Road to include ample amounts of chrome straight to the dome.
The one that Made Pearl-Clutchers Join Twitter
And eventually figure out how to heap complaints or praise.
The One with the Repurposed Chandelier
A lesson from Miley: you don't need underwear when you have precious stones to cover up your precious bits.
The One with the Two-Day Bikini Wax
A painful but ultimately fulfilling journey for audiences of all ages.
The One with Doorknockers on Miley's... Knockers
I hear they're Versace (but sadly not available at your local Home Depot).
The One with Sixth Grade Nostalgia
Only Miley could turn one rainbow booksock into a piece of wearable clothing.
The One with the Least Helpful Apron Ever
Leeloo, is that you?
The One with an Oscar-Winning Joker
And the most strategically placed dots you've ever seen on a shower curtain.
No matter what you think about Miley's outfits, you've gotta admit they'd all make an impression on your average studio audience.
