Today, Miley Cyrus will walk around with an icy glare at the ready for anyone who dares say the words, “I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22.” For today marks the completion of Miley Cyrus 22nd year of life, from Hannah Montana to the 2013 VMAs and everything in between. Today marks the beginning of the three-month period each year when Miley and I are the same age. And that my friends, is something worth celebrating.
These days, Miley Cyrus’ style can best be described as “I totally have boobs. Look at them! Do it!” So it can be hard to remember that there was time, just post-Disney and pre-insanity, when she was nailing every single red carpet with a sleek, sophisticated vengeance. In honor of her birthday, I’d like to honor those days. In memoriam, Miley Cyrus’ greatest looks:
1. This Stupid Beautiful Roberto Cavalli Gown
The gown, the earrings, the Old Hollywood locks…I can’t even.
2. The Bra Dress
Remember when we thought this was scandalous? I still reminisce about those days sometimes.
3. Backless White Stunna
Oh how I long for this Miley Cyrus.
4. The Giambattista Valli Watercolor Dress
She has slayed a few times recently as well. At the World Music Awards a few months ago, Miley dropped jaws by being elegant, instead of naked.
5. The Kaufman Franco Disco Ball
She kept this bizarre “clothes” theme into the night, with this dress that made me too, want to be a disco ball.
6. 2012 People’s Choice Awards
I particularly love the color coded CD collection along her hem.
7. The Original Elsa
I did not think the Frozen braid could exist in real life, but alas, Miley debuted it back in 2011!
8. Hippie Cowgirl Miley
If I’m really being honest with myself, I think cowboy-boot wearing Miley Cyrus is the Miley I miss most of all.
9. White Shirt Black Bra
Do you remember when Miley used to rock the white tee black bra look all day erry day? In 2009, his was Miley’s edgiest look to date.
10. The I’m Mature Mini
Oh, the sweet sweet memories. Happy birthday Miley, thanks for all the inspiration.
