Our regularly scheduled Teen Choice Awards red carpet coverage is on its way–but, while prepping said gallery, we realized we needed to stop for a moment and just focus in on Miley Cyrus‘ look. For a minute. Got it?
While we’re pretty ambivalent about Miley in general–we admired her in Marc Jacobs at the Met Gala, we are pleasantly surprised when she lands risky red carpet looks, we hate when she invokes Trayvon Martin to lament her plight as a famous person, when she high fives herself publicly, when she brags about being rich on social media. But we’re really ready for this whole punk rawk cosplay she’s adopted to end. She does know Billy Ray Cyrus is her dad, right?
Anyway, adding to the angst is the singer’s choice of label: Fall 2013 Saint Laurent–we already think Hedi Slimane‘s collections for the sadly rebranded house of Yves might charitably be categorized as “hilarious bullshit,” thanks to the roulette wheel pricing and bracingly unoriginal ideas. But, seriously:
Completely sheer shirt. Sorry, mesh shirt. Over a pleather bra. Add a bondage-y high waist skirt made of belt buckles, miles of leg and some white pumps. ’80s blood red nails and piles of gold jewelry. That’s “California grunge” as far as the fashion industry’s concerned, certainly, but that doesn’t make it less stupid.
