Miley Cyrus Starts the VMAs Fully Clothed, Ends Up Significantly Less So

Miley Cyrus may want more hair, but when it comes to clothes, she appears to want the exact opposite.

RELATED PHOTOS: See even more of the bold looks from the VMAs!

The perpetually pantsless singer started out the night at Sunday’s VMAs wearing an uncharacteristically covered-up look: a vintage Dolce & Gabbana look consisting of a crop-top and high-waisted pair of spandex pants ringed in rows of jewels. Pigtails, red lips and chunky black shoes rounded out the ensemble.

Just when we were recovering from the shock of seeing her so clothed, the pants were off for her performance with Robin Thicke. She opened in a strapless onesie featuring a bear with bloodshot eyes and platform sneakers, then shed that style to reveal a peach vinyl bikini and some very raunchy dance moves.

Tell us: At what phase of nearly-nude do you most prefer Miley? Do you wish she’d cover up, or do you think, “If you got it, flaunt it?”

She needs to quit trying so hard, she used to be cute and now it’s just kind of sad. Poor Liam, run….preferably to me! :)

I couldn’t believe her mom gave her a standing ovation after that disastrous performance…WTH!!

Ugh, I hate her. I hated her even when she was in the Hanna Montana phase. That was the most attention seeking performance I’ve seen in a while. And I haven’t forgotten Gaga’s meat dress or born in the egg thing. I don’t know what in the world she was going for but if sex appeal was it, it didn’t work. Neither did the bad dancing. Insulting.

Her parents must be so proud!!
Seriously put some clothes on!! What kind of example is she teaching her young fans. Like it or not she is a role model for young girls and needs to start acting like it or choose a career not in the spotlight.

GSL on

She has succeeded. Her goal was to keep everyone talking and look at us all!

Well I wouldn’t say the first outfit was fully clothed to start with….

Dee on

That Liam Hemsworth was attracted to this mess speaks volumes about him
