38 Photos Of Miley Cyrus’s Style Evolution Through The Years

When it comes to style, Miley Cyrus is no stranger to daring outfits. The singer from Franklin, Tennessee, began her career starring in the Disney show Hannah Montana which saw her rise to fame as a teen idol. The early days of her career were marked by simple outfits and cowboy boots: not surprising considering her southern roots. But then the sweet little country girl suddenly turned into a fearless and daring pop star who started pushing all the boundaries. After the wild phase, the 25-year-old singer then made yet another change. After releasing her sixth studio album Younger Now, and landing a judging role on The Voice US, Miley toned down her style as well as her music.

Her transformations have been one of the most dramatic and shocking ones ever. Here’s a quick rundown through the years, courtesy of Insider, that will give you a complete picture of how Miley Cyrus’ sense of style has changed over time.

“[A year ago] I had to do the [‘A Very Murray Christmas’] premiere, and I will never do a red carpet again,” she told Elle. “Why, when people are starving, am I on a carpet that’s red? Because I’m ‘important’? Because I’m ‘famous’? […] That’s not how I roll. It’s like a skit — it’s like ‘Zoolander.'”
