We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from and her newest show, Tabatha Takes Over, which premieres again on April 4 at 10 p.m.! And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch each week to dish on some of the bestand worst – celebrity looks of the week. Keep in mind the opinions below belong solely to the stylist … though she’s probably saying what lots of you are thinking, anyway!

Today, she takes on Miley Cyrus, who chose a very bold jumpsuit for a recent outing:

What in the world is Miley Cyrus wearing?! Am I looking at one of those Magic Eye posters where if I stare at it long enough I’ll see a schooner or an enchanted unicorn? So. Many. Stripes. Can’t. Focus.

Don’t get me wrong, I do love me some Miley. She is one youngster who I feel expresses her individuality and personality bravely. It’s difficult to be in the public eye, especially when you had to succumb to it at such an early age.

But one thing is for damn sure: I cannot wrap my head around this ensemble. This is what Miley wore to the grand opening of Seacrest Studios at CHOC Children’s Hospital in California. Was she under the impression that she was going to be moonlighting as a clown for the day and ditched the wig, makeup and big red shoes at the last minute? Sorry to be a little harsh on you Miss Miley, but I’m only calling it as I see it.

One thing is for certain—I cannot get enough of her fantastic hair and makeup. This cut and style will always be at the top of my like list. It is so undeniably flattering for her face shape.

Seriously folks, not a lot of people can pull this look off, but Miley is one of them for certain. And those striking red lips, pronounced brows and defined eyes are so completely on trend. From the neck up, I say bravo. From the neck down, send in the clowns.

If you anticipated crawling on the floor with children at a hospital you would want to wear something that wouldn’t show dirt or could readily embarrass you. Also, you are appearing on the radio not tv. It appears to be a good choice to me.

Miley has gone so Hollywood but she looks great doing it.

I thought Tabatha just did salons? Now she’s just taking over everything? She’s an expert at everything now.

Not something I would wear but then again I’m not twenty something… lol. But Miley pulled if off and considering that she was at a children’s hospital, not a bad choice.

” It’s difficult to be in the public eye, especially when you had to succumb to it at such an early age.”

I’m sorry poor Miley Cyrus had such a difficult childhood being privileged! I’m sure the children suffering fro poverty, abuse and war would agree!
If she wanted to show individuality and stick out all she had to do was just dressed classy and mature, which all the young people in Hollywood don’t seem to be doing!

Miley’s look may not be everybody’s taste; but, it is hers. I am not a fan of her hairstyle either; but, it is her hair. Tabatha needs to go back to the salon from which she came. Her 15 minutes are over.

I’m sick of hearing that an outfit is a “faux pas” on one person, and then two weeks later, the SAME OUTFIT is an “edgy look” on Madonna or some other fashion icon.

Fashion is an ART, not a science! These people who do nothing but assemble outfits as their “talent” are as fickle and hypocritical as Republicans!
