Miley Cyrus: Trendsetter

By  |  0 Comments

When you think Miley Cyrus, you think of a tongue-wagging, latex two-piece wearing wild child. But when the multi-platinum recording artist breaks from her on-stage persona, she is a fashion force to be reckoned with. Her “I don’t care” attitude allows for fashion risks and fashion rewards. Here are some trends the fashion forward pop-star rocked before they went mainstream.

The Pixie.
Who can forget the infamous Instagram photo where scissor-wielding, hairstylist to the stars, Chris McMillian, cuts off Miley’s top-knot back in 2012? The drastic hair change may have been shocking then, but now, it seems like every woman in Hollywood is lining up to follow the trend. There’s Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence, Shailene Woodley, Kristin Cheoweth, Julianne Hough, Charlize Theron and Lena Dunham, just to name a few.

The 90’s Slip Dress.

Fashion is cyclical, we know this, but knowing when its the right time to repeat the trend, well that’s where it gets a bit tricky. Back in October of 2013, Miley stunned in this glittering green Marc Jacobs slip dress. The gown’s backless halter silhouette was just edgy enough for the, now, 21-year-old. She completed the look with Saint Laurent shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Black & White. & A Red Lip.
We’ve got a two-in-one here. Smiley Miley’s rockstar style paired perfectly with this black and white Valentino getup at the 2013 Maxim Hot 100 Party last May. We’re seeing black and white in new modern ways across every red carpet, and it doesn’t get more modern than a killer jumpsuit. Complimenting the look, a bold red lip for that amazing pop of color.
