No One Has Had More Red Carpet Phases Than Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus has been in the public eye for well over two decades, but the multi-hyphenate has been through so many different style phases, it’s hard to believe how she’s fit everything into that time. Starting off as a young Disney starlet, Cyrus is responsible for providing us with some quintessential early aughts looks (we’re talking dresses over jeans, sequin overload, you know the deal). From there, she quickly matured and started getting offers from major labels to dress her for events, and by the time Hannah Montana: The Movie came out, she was attending the premieres in Hervé Léger and Dolce & Gabbana.

It was around 2012, after she filmed The Last Song and started dating Liam Hemsworth, though, when she really started having fun with style, trying different aesthetics on for size and playing around with her hair. Just a year later, we would be introduced to the blonde, cropped hair Miley, who preferred leather sets and skin-barring looks. Then, 2015 brought us into the Bangerz era filled with bondage-style tops, a whole lot of glitter, and over-the-top everything. After that, Cyrus toned it down a bit and embraced a simpler aesthetic, finding some of her preferred designers like Saint Laurent, Mugler, and Stella McCartney.

These days, the singer rarely wears anything made in the past two decades, preferring vintage pieces from the days of Gianni Versace and Bob Mackie. In honor of Cyrus’s ever-changing fashion sense, let’s take a look back at some of her best red carpet looks from over the years. And make sure you buckle up, it’s a bit of a wild ride.

Who knew sewing supplies could look this good? On the red carpet of the 2024 Grammy Awards, Cyrus dropped jaws in a custom Maison Margiela naked dress designed out of over 14,000 gold safety pins. Her look, designed by John Galliano, also nodded to his eponymous label’s fall 1997 collection.

Cyrus wore a total of five (yes, five!) outfits when she took home her first Grammy Award in 2024. This archival Bob Mackie dress, however, deserves its own “Flowers.”
