WWD Report Card: Far From a Dream and My Cardigan

We’ve entered the golden age of Miley Cyrus’ style.

We still love the Hannah Montana years. This has a teenage-girl-going-to-prom vibe that feels very appropriate. But while the peep-toe might’ve worked then, it’s not aging well.

This youthful take on a Greek goddess gown feels almost costume-y, especially knowing where fashion is going to take her. Also the white draped front is too close to window dressing for comfort.

Leather bondage top, cropped bleach hair and smokey cat eye? This risqué effort encapsulates her sexy rocker phase that helped her transition out of Disney Channel pop. Might not be the best look if you’re hoping to avoid a wardrobe malfunction — but it’s still really fun.

While many celebrities look ridiculous in some of their Met Gala-themed outfits, Miley pulls off this sexy Goth-punk gown effortlessly. Worn at a time when the naked dress trend was at its peak, this plays with the concept but in a very controlled, chic way.

This is our favorite Miley fashion stage yet. It’s kind of impressive to be able to pull off a mullet, which she does in spades. The zebra-print dress with matching high gloves reads like glam high society with a big flavor of downtown. It’s basically what everybody dreams of for themselves.
