Fugly Cyrus


According to the caption, this was Miley doing some shopping in New York.

According to the laws of fashion, this more closely resembles Miley taking out her garbage before going out to earn some rent money, while hoping a dude in a Lotus picks her up for a stick-shift lesson.

    I’m not sure whether Miley’s dressing like a hooker is better than her dressing like a 50-year-old. She’s just so delighted with her new Pilates body, she just can’t keep it in, can she?
    You can take a girl out of the hills . . .

      I was thinking the same thing. She’s been working out, so she wants to show leg and abs. I’m okay with that, though there are more attractive ensembles she could choose. Although, when I think about it, I was her age in the early 90s, and some thigh-high tights, shorts, and cropped tops were definitely part of my look. Damn it.

    I like those shorts, but… wow.

      I would like the shorts, if it were a dress. Worn without the hooker boots.

        I was thinking how great those shorts would look as a pencil skirt….Drag the sweater down to a regular length, cut the boots off to below the knee…and I’ll live with the see through sweater part ( she’s young, sometime’s ya gotta)…..

    I just want to know.. how does she pick her outfits? What goes through your mind to make you combine that top, THOSE shorts and THOSE boots? As in, hmmm, let’s see, today I feel like Pretty Woman, with an ethnic twist? Is this a symbolic message to Arabian and/or African women to free their minds and start wearing shorts?

    The shorts alone, I also like. Now if only they were worn with – well, almost anything else, really.

    At least she’s wearing actual knee-high boots, instead of the short boots + knee high tights thing she did a week or so ago.

    And as I am prone to noting – girl is 19. My 19 year old niece recently posted some pics on Facebook that actually exposed MORE skin than this. (For which she took much teasing from the adults in her life.) It’s the age, I think – you have that body, you’re going to show it off.

    In about 10 years, she’s going to look at these and go “Man, what the hell was I thinking?”

      Being 19 is no excuse for poor taste.

      • Helen

        Exactly. It isn’t that she’s exposing a lot of skin here – she isn’t. It’s that the outfit is just BAD.

          I dressed horribly at 19, mostly b/c I had no $$ and had to shop at Goodwill. In Tallahassee. Which does NOT have a good Goodwill selection; instead, you have your selection of the castoffs of other broke people. Not good.

          Miley, on the other hand, has very different fashion options than I did at that age. That said. I DO like the boots – with a different outfit, and in November. Can’t fathom wearing them in July, or with the rest of this ensemble.

          also…she’s “engaged.” You’d think she’d be past trying to look like a street walker.

          my thoughts exactly. This would be less atrocious if she was wearing some sandals or something instead of those horrible boots

        *snort* See, I kinda think it is. Besides, my Mom used to say that bad taste frequently cost more than good taste. Just see Marchesa these days ;)

        Seriously – I would think if you have an avalanche of clothes thrown at you all the time, you don’t have to think about what your style is. So you don’t necessarily develop a sense of style.

        You don’t have to see what fits, see what you like, and see what you can afford – you can just grab whatever catches your eye and fits. Not to mention other people dressed her for years, and everyone has dinged her for her clothing for so long, it probably doesn’t register anymore. She’s not going to listen to honest criticism when she hears it.

        Besides, her Mom – while nowhere near the level of Dina Lohan – is not exactly a woman who dresses with elegance and a sense of style. Who is going to teach her what classic elegance looks like? A stylist who has clothes to push?

        I do hope she develops a better sense of style. Hell, let’s hope for a Tim Gunn intervention. In the meantime, I can’t ding her too deeply. I can only hope being around the Hemsworth family maybe normalizes her a little bit and shows her that not every out-and-about outfit needs to flash thighs, midriff and cleavage.

      No, she’ll think: God, how could I have thought I was fat??!! I would kill for that body now.

      Love this comment, and Carrie’s comment immediately above. I’m sure the reaction she was hoping for was “Holy hotness!’, but instead she inspired WTF?!?! She’s even wearing the boob necklace under that top. The shorts are great, though.

      And really, what exactly is she carrying? Is that a trash bag, or did she just ransack someone’s apartment and she’s carrying her ill-gotten gains in a pillow case?

    The white bag looks like a kitchen trash bag– was she really just running out real quick to throw out her trash?

    I hope she wasn’t shopping for some new jeans. Those boots are going to be a real pain in the ass.

      I thought the same thing! I always opt for simple footwear when shopping. SO annoying to deal with shoes when trying a bunch of things on…

        There’s a series of pictures from this same day I saw on some other site where, in fact, she is in one wandering around barefoot (with some nice-looking raw patches on the backs of her heels, ow) and another, dragging the boots back on.

        She IS nineteen, but this outfit is just a tad much. The boots, the shorts, some other top, maybe (would look a bit tryhard and bloggery, but maybe), OR the shorts, the top, and a breezy pair of sandals — either of those would look young and hot without tipping over into “how much does she charge?”

          I had to go and check out the “boob necklace”. Good grief. I thought those things were on trend for about thirty seconds two years ago. However, the “boob necklace” apparently sticking out of her shorts, I can now say, after close examination, is an imprint on her skin from presumably having that massive purse in her lap for a while with the chain handle underneath.

        • Anita

          The mark on her thigh is probably from her purse, but the boob necklace is very clearly hanging out from beneath her top.

    Know what’s funny, I actually thought ‘Man she is getting REALLY blonde’ before I even notied the boots. I just wanted to formally apologise.

    Ok, I may be crazy, but is she wearing zip up SPATS over boots? Look closely- it looks like there are knee-high boots under there, and the zip up legwarmer/spat goes over it. Anyone with me? Or am I just attaching more fuggery to the outfit than is warranted?

    • pinkcheese

      Jenny – I can see it, too! WTF?? Also, as someone noted below, the boob necklace does appear to be sticking out of her right short leg. Holy hell.

    “LIGHTS! Lights would be good here.”
    That’s what someone should have told her while she was getting dressed.

    I’m so relieved I can look back at photos of myself at 19 and not say wow I looked like a total garbage-slinging hooker with Frankenstein feet.

    Her bod is amazing. By all means show it off, but what’s the aversion to an adorable sundress without thighhighs or a boob necklace?

      Well said. There are classy ways of showing off. Wouldn’t you rather have people just admire what you have rather than wondering if it’s for sale?

    When I was 19 I was going through a whole (obsessive) Issey Miyake phase – I wore him or vintage 50′s toredor pants with a variety of boat necked tops long or cropped. I often think looking back on those pictures that I wasted a banging body, but then I look at these pictures of Miley and I think “praise baby jebus!” lol

    First of all, it is JULY, who WHAT is with the BOOTS?!

    The hookerwear is awful from head to toe, but it is no surprise. Miley has awful taste in clothes.

    She reminds me of Christina Aguilera at age 20. She wore all horrendous slutwear as if she were screaming, “LookatmeIamallgrownupand SEXAY!!!”

    Kris M, I’m going to respectfully disagree with you here. 19 is really the only valid excuse for poor taste in clothes. There are very few surviving photos of me at 19 and for that I am profoundly grateful. She looks ridiculous but in a few years, she’ll know it.

    On another topic, I kind of love the blond hair on her.

    She needs a Sassy Gay Friend. “The shorts are fine, hon, but I’m not sure if THAT is the right top? And the boots, just no no no! Oh, and Sweetie, that big necklace on top isn’t working and for goodness sakes do SOMETHING with your hair!”

    (Plus, boob necklace seems to be peeking out under her shorts? the hell?)

    Summer is not for knee-high boots. I can’t even begin to imagine the sweat that is piling up inside those things.
    The rest of it is bad, too, but it’s Miley, so only the boots really bug me.

    My teenage daughters would think they died and went to heaven if we went to Forever 21 and bought those shorts. And in twenty years they would look at pictures of them and ask me, “Why did you let me wear those things?”

    The boots? Oh hell no.

    Her legs must be sweating like CRAY-CRAY in those boots. Ewwwwwww

    Also, where is she “shopping” for the day?? The corner bodega? It looks like she’s got her dirty laundry in a garbage bag & is headed to the laundromat. “Darn, all I have clean are these hiddy shorts, black bra, fishnet top & hooker boots. Oh well…”

    This screams early 90′s to me -so I can’t stay mad at it, even if it IS misguided (if only the guy next to her was wearing hypercolor *sigh*). But her feet look all wonky – like she has the boots mixed up. She has clown toes!

    She definitely needs to fix the blonde hair and lose that infernal body necklace.

    And uh-oh, there is another chain hanging out of her right shorts leg… I do hope she doesn’t get it caught on something.

    Something about this reminds me of the first time you see the Daryl (sp?) Hannah character in Blade Runner — if Blade Runner was set in the mid-summer heat and sunshine.

    She’s 19. She’s shopping in New York, not going to an event. Yes, she looks ridiculous, but I wouldn’t want to be held accountable for what I wore when I was 19 (which was the era of Flashdance and “Let’s Get Physical”– it was not a good fashion era). And she wants to show off her slammin’ body. Personally, if I were giving her advice I’d tell her to lose the blonde hair and stop pairing boots with shorts if only because they are really hot, and not in a good way, but in a “make your legs sweat” way. If she’d worn this outfit with sandals, I don’t think we’d be having a conversation.

    I hope she’s not shopping for shoes – getting in and out of those boots must be a full days work, with staff.
