Miley Cyrus in Zimmermann

Posted on June 28, 2012

You guys! Miley is totally dressing her age! Wait. She’s 35; right?

Miley Cyrus attends the Australians In Film Awards & Benefit Dinner in a Zimmerman dress paired.

Christian Louboutin ‘Exvota’ Sandal

All kidding aside, we don’t actually mind the dress. It’s not exactly chic, but it looks like fairly standard club wear. Oh, wait. Not only is she not 35, she’s not at a club. Okay, re-assess.

Still not a terrible dress, but we question the classiness of wearing something like this to an awards dinner. Her hair and makeup are pretty close to flawless, but there’s little about either that speaks to her youth. We’re not kidding when we say she looks 35 from the neck up.

Nothing’s particularly terrible here (Okay, the shoes are kind of awful), and she’s at least dressing closer to her age, but for whatever reason, she’s determined to look like a single mom out on the town for a well-deserved night of fun rather than a young girl at the height of her entertainment career. Bear in mind that she’s the same age as Selena Gomez, only two years older than Dakota Fanning, and three years YOUNGER than Taylor Swift.

  • It looks like someone cut the front of her dress off. Weird.

    • Just noticed the chain leading between & under the chest, too. Tacky

  • I think it is the mediocre eyebrow hair situation that is aging her.  That’s the kind of blonde I see on my greying coworkers. 

  • Wrong, wrong, wrong. She looks like some on the prowl chic in Vegas.  The shoes are an abomination

  • I can’t with that tacky cut-out. 

    ETA: Just noticed the chain leading between & under the chest, too. Tacky squared.

    • Celandine1

      OMG that chain is awful. She looks like an extra from Showgirls. I don’t even want to know where that chain ends or what it is attached to.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      That chain paired with the cut-out raises tacky to ubertackular.

  • Terence Ng

    She’s 19, she’s got the body, and she won’t have it forever. I say “Why not?”

    If I had her body at that age, I’d love to laugh about it years later, knowing that I could and I did, even if it was due to the embarrassing brashness of youth.

    But no on the chin touch, young lady. That IS ageing and pretentious beyond your years.

    • RzYoung

      Ew I just noticed the chin touch…if you’re going to flash your ring you might as well just FLASH THE RING and stop trying to be subtle about it.

    • sherrietee

       Did someone maybe yell out to her “do a glamour shots pose!” ?

      • Terence Ng

        Needs more side ponytail.

    • kimmeister

      Other than the ugly shoes, I think she looks amazing, although wildly inappropriate for the particular event.

  • Jecca2244

    I truly believe in her head she is 35. 

    • AudreysMom

       maybe there’s an exponent in the math, considering that she started show business when she was what? 5 years old?

  • It looks like someone Jennifer Aniston would wear. (And that’s not a compliment.)

    • Introspective

      spot on!! I saw jennifer aniston too in this look, on that rare day when jen felt like putting her sparkly bathtowel dresses to rest. The hair is very jennifer too: bottle blond, extra straight, uninspired. Im sure this is all not helping miley in the battle to not look 35+… She needs an intervention. stat. or the gays that dress chloe moretz.   

      •  At this point tarring and feathering her would be an improvement. Hell, I could dress her better and I’m a non-fashonista dingbat!

    • ballerinawithagun

      Whoops, I posted a similar comment before reading all the way through.

  • MilaXX

    The only thing I like here is the hair and makeup. Hate the dress, hate the shoes. It appears that Miley is going through her I dropped a bunch of weight, shoe my body phase.

    • AnaRoW

      But it’s the hair and makeup that’s aging her.  I don’t mind the dress although I agree it’s inappropriate for the venue.  The body chain and shoes are weird but I can’t get worked up about either.

      • MilaXX

        eh, I prefer this hair over the ratty extensions she used to wear & the makeup isn’t that bad. It’s the dress I find aging. Seriously Ellen Barkin wore a red dress exactly like that in a movie in the 80’s and the shoes are just too chunky to pair with that dress.

  • Doesn’t she just scream, “Respect me”?

  • GillianHolroyd

    she looks like an airbrushed photo of her future self.

    • Miley on the cover of InStyle, June 2028.

  • teensmom99

    Agree with all you say except I love the shoes.  With a different outfit, they would be great.  Perhaps a flowy skirt.  Miley has been dressing old for a long time–I wonder if she and her mother shop together so that they both look inappropriate.

    • formerlyAnon

      “I wonder if she and her mother shop together so that they both look inappropriate.”
      Good one!

  • tereliz

    I like her, uh… bracelets. Those are really cute. 

    Other than that she’s Vegas club girl from the neck down, and from the neck up? Jennifer Aniston called from 1996 (with millions of other girls in 1996 in speaker) and wants her hair back. 

    • charlotte

       I’d say she was on her way to the Spice Girls reunion and landed in the wrong country.

  • Lina_bee

    How is she still wearing that body chain? It’s like she thinks she’s in a porn movie from 1977.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    is it possible to be a 19 yr old cougar?? 😉

  • AlinaValero

    sheer sleeves and ruching are great for body insecurities in your 30s and 40s. miley’s 19.

  • RzYoung

    OMG TLo talk about context – she’s the SAME AGE as Selena Gomez!? I had no idea. People just mature at different paces I guess…

  • The thing I really hate is that necklace-thingy that is going down between her breasts and into her dress. It just looks desperate, like she was worried that the bra top element of the dress wouldn’t be enough to draw the eye there.

  • nannypoo

    From teen idol to hooker in a few short months. Amazing transformation.

  • AudreysMom

    She’s at the height of her entertainment career? Mind you, I don’t follow her except what makes it into the headlines. But, is she touring or delivering CDs? Don’t tell me she’s still doing Hannah Montana?

    • Getting engaged to Liam Hemsworth is a career move. Possibly her biggest yet.

      • AudreysMom

         Ah yes, I knew about that but seriously thought that by entertainment career TLo meant, something that involved her talent. I guess we’re supposed to gather that by ‘entertainment career’ that means, marrying a hottie celebrity who is in the entertainment industry. Welcome, Hannah/Miley to the Housewives of Beverly Hills (or Sydney).

  • Beth G

    That body jewelry is BEYOND tacky.  EW and YUCK!  And the shoes look like an artsy craftsy project.

  • Anathema_Device

    ’90s cocktail waitress.

    I do like her now, though. So glad she bailed on those tortured extentions.

    • TheOriginalLulu

      Agreed. Those extensions were nasty.

  • Ew. The dress is a bra attached to sheer sleeves with a girdle skirt.

  • sherrietee

    Um, no 35-year-old should be wearing a dress like that.  25, maybe, but not 35.  I imagine she’s trying to dress older than her age so people aren’t freaked out as much by her being engaged to be married before she turns 20.  

    She looks okay, I suppose.

    • Terence Ng

      I thought the same thing. Definitely more of a 25 look than a 35 look. Not so strange for a 19yo to want to aim at 20’s.

    • It’s a Hollywood 35 dress. AKA desperate 35 dress. Or Halle Berry hot damn 35 dress.

  • sisterb67

    Huh, this is a “red carpet” dress? And here I thought she was headed to an audition for the lead role in “Count Titula, Vampire Madam”… 

    • Terence Ng

      Or Vampirella.

      • sisterb67

         Good heavens, YES. Seriously, we get it Miley. You have tits. You don’t have to fling them in everyone’s faces all the time. You know what’s great? A little mystery. Showing just enough skin that people want to know what’s under the outfit is far sexier than wearing, to paraphrase Mae Mordabito in A League of Their Own, an “Oops!, my bosoms came flying out!” dress.

  • She looks like one of those divorcees who go to PF Changs and flirts with the waiters.  Ugh.

    • TheOriginalLulu


  • SpcilK

    She wants everyone to know she is not Hanna Montana anymore. She is a grown-up with a fiance and she is doing grown-up things! (Wink,Wink) Hence the attire as of late.

  • formerlyAnon

    Boring, verging on ugly, and in a hootchie way.  Either she or her stylist is very talented in a direction no one her age should want to go.

    Actually, paired with a fun, slightly bo-ho look (I’m thinking those 70s flared jeans with a crazy quilt top in fun colors), rather than this dress, the shoes are the only part of this that I’d put on a girl her age.

  • formerlyAnon

    P.S. If I didn’t know to whom she’s engaged, and that he’s also too young to get married (at least in their line of work), I’d have postulated she was seeing, or trying to attract the attention of a 40-something business man & was doing her interpretation of the look of girlfriends/trophy wives in his circle.

  • DominoEstella

    blek.  I just don’t like her… She looks like Samantha on Sex & the City.  

  • MightyMarshal

    I actually like it. Shoes included.

  • l3icest3r

    The dress is ugly, but it’s not totally unflattering, although I agree it definitely ages her and looks inappropriate for the occasion. But Miley’s kind of working it: The straps of the top are giving minimal support, but her breasts look amazing  — most actresses would have two sad tacos up there.

    Bonus points for good posture.

    From the neck up — agh. I understand that after being in the spotlight as a teen princess for so long, Miley would want to find a new look. The makeup and hair she has here age her so much though. She must have gotten some styling tips from Hayden Panettiere.

    • kimmeister

      *spits out coffee*  I have never heard breasts described as “sad tacos”! 😀

    • nannypoo

      Sad tacos? She’s 19 years old, the height of boob perkiness for all women. Almost anyone her age can expect her boobs to stand up on their own but just wait, Miley, just wait….

  • MoHub

    35? She looks as if she’s doing Desperation 50.

  • sk8tfan

    The chain looks like an autopsy scar.

  • rafraf25

    This girl always looks like a hoochie when she’s not dressed like a senior citizen. Even when she’s not wearing anything vulgar she looks sooo tacky.

  • Miley, sweetie, you put your dress on backwards and I can see your bra.

  • FlamingJune1967

    Would someone please explain this body chain thing to me, ’cause I don’t get it.  Where is it going?

  • Sara__B

    An awards dinner is not the venue to try so hard to be sexy. I’ll give her a pass because she’s only 19 (although she looks much much older), and I’m hoping she’ll learn.

  • TheOriginalLulu

    Is that a bikini top? With my high-waisted mini-skirt from 1989? And a shrug for modesty? Oy gevalt.
    Anyway, I’m not in love with this shade of blonde for her, but can we talk about how much prettier she looks with hair that looks healthy and shiny as opposed to ratty and dirty?

  • unbornfawn

    A 35 year old hooker.

  • it reminds me of Marilyn Monroe’s iconic pink (maybe red) dress from movie “niagara”, perhaps the designer got inspiration from there, but the original design is so much  better. 

  • newtonGOTbeaned

    I don’t get it. She has an incredible body, a cute face, and nice hair. How hard could it be? Although I really like the shoes.

  • EEKstl

    I actually don’t mind the dress, it’s just not the right venue for it.  Love the bangles, tho.

  • KSpence

    I’m sorry, but is her engagement ring heart-shaped? 

    • formerlyAnon

      I thought so, but while I will spend/waste countless hours a week on this site, I refuse to spend 3 minutes googling a good photo of it to be sure. I have MUCH better things to do with my time. *tosses head, snootily* *(fooling no-one)*

  • what happened to having a pedicure (in a natural/neutral color) before wearing sandals?

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    She needs to stop taking her mother’s sartorial advice. That woman is a “cool mom” in the Amy-Poehler-in-mean-girls vein. This look is so 90’s it hurts. Visible infrastructure, tons of black, ashy blonde bob? Check, check, check.  Thank god there’s no brown lipstick.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    How did she wrestle that dress away from Jennifer Aniston?

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Jennifer Aniston looks AMAZING!

  • Saucysusan

    Sluttty, slutty, slutty.

  • Monabel

    Witty shoes, but not sure she knows it.

  • guest2visits

    Trashy and Old.   Even just the thumbnail was enough to classify this look.  Nice bracelet collection Miley.
    If only I didn’t have to see any crummy little scratchy tats while viewing them.

  • okay, now i’m not a person who is easily offended.  but catholic religious charms on your shoes?  what’s next?  our lady of guadalupe on the soles of your shoes?  for those not familiar, those charms are called milagros (miracles) and catholics in mexico bring them to various shrines to the virgin mary when they are praying for her intervention.  the image on the charm relates to the miracle needed, e.g. if a child is ill, one might bring an image of a child.  using them to decorate shoes is beyond bad taste. 

  • marilyn

    Her legs are about 10 shades darker than the rest of her.   She is trying to look older and has succeeded.  Too bad.

  • AthenaJ

    I’m pretty sure she stole this outfit from an Atlantic City casino cocktail waitress.

  • jmorino08

    Is it me or is she trying to bring “the Rachel” back?

  • KaileeM

    Well, at least she took those horrible extensions out? That’s a plus, right?

  •  God, she always looks like a mid-life crisis.

  • Who but Louboutin would have thought of Etruscan tombs when designing shoes? Because = sexy?

  • Oh, dear. I guess I really *do* mind the dress – it looks as though somebody forgot to finish it, much more “klutzy” than “sexy”.

    Although… if I stare at that second picture, the closeup, long enough, I can see a pink-faced giant in sunglasses peering out from her frontal regions, which amused me enough to forgive her for the outfit!


  • Cut her some slack…. she is genetically style impaired… Her father is THE Mullet Man and her mother has giant angel wings tattooed on her back…. 

  • sashaychante

    One of the Housewives of Orange County must have loaned this dress to Ms. Miley.  Perhaps Tamara Barney (or whatever her last name is now). 

  • mozzer0906

    WTF  is that chain she is always wearing that goes down her cleavage?  What does it attach to?  It just looks so trashy.  I imagine it attaches to like labia clamps or something and just think “ewww”.  

  • Um , incorrect. Those shoes are dope.

  • librarygrrl64

    Looks like she raided Sharon Stone’s closet, circa 1995.

  • PaulaBerman

    Again, she needs to hike that bra top up like 3″. I feel like I am posting this at least once a day about someone.

  • suzq

    Agreed.  I think she needs to darken her hair, not lighten it.  She needs to soften her look just a little bit, too.   Does everything have to be overtly slutty?  Those shoes are horrible. 

  • Miley seems very…tentative…here.  Maybe she’s just realized that she missed the look she was aiming for? 

    Dark brows/light hair always scream NOT MY REAL HAIR COLOR! to me.  Not flattering, youthful, or fresh.

    She’s a very young woman with boatloads of money to spend on herself, but she desperately needs some guidance in how to put things together for the particular venues she finds herself in.  Distinguishing between public and private personas would be a good place to start.  Experimenting so publicly (and with so many unfortunate pictures to document the process of growing up) must be daunting.

    I’m sure there are a lot of voices shrieking at her ad nauseum, and it must be damn near impossible for her to find herself in all of the commotion.  It’s truly sad that her parents are so caught up in their own drama that they can’t parent their daughter.

    There’s a lot to be said for not being famous… 

  • Those SHOES. My god. 

  • golspie

    That would probably look great if she had kept her hair dark. 

  • melanie0866

    I love the shoes!  They’re whimsical!

    The dress is slutty.

  • ugga bugga

    “Hi! My name is Miley, and these are my breasts.”  “Breasts, say hi to everyone, don’t be shy!”

    I’m sorry, but the only place this is appropriate is on a stripper on the vegas strip.  Put this outfit on Nomi Malone in Showgirls and it’s perfect.

    On Miley, both too old and too tacky.  Sorry.

  • horribledanger

    The whole thing makes me think Business Executive Exotic dancer at a Vegas convention. She’s on the prowl, trying to find new sponsors for her failing Gentleman’s Club at the big buy in casinos. 

  • onyxkatze

    It must be handy to have one piece of clothing that serves as both a bra and a dress.
    In all seriousness, I covet those shoes.

  • TheOtherChristina

    I actually think that dress would look chic on the right person. I’m not sure who that person is — Rooney Mara?

    Also, I love the idea of the shoes. It’s a shame that the proportions of the upper make them look like the worlds sluttiest Chacos.

  • Warrior89

    I know Miley’s all tacky and stuff, but I just kind of love her!  And this get-up is so much better than when she goes all Stevie Nicks.

  • SophieCollier

    Not really at the height of her career, is she?  I can’t think of a single project I’ve heard her working on in ages.  I think she’s dressing to suit her early retirement.  

  • Expensive clothing, yet she still manages to look tacky.

  • Really? Well, maybe tastes differ, but I think she looks really pretty here. 

  • LambeeBaby

    So harsh! She only looks 30 yrs old. Bra and high waisted pencil skirt. The shoes are biker chick cool but not appropriate with the cocktail hostess/hotel bar resident dress. But I totally dig the bracelets.

  • butterflysunita

    The dress and chain are tacky, but all would be forgiven if she looked great, which she doesn’t.  

  • bellafigura1

    She looks like a cougar.

  • gabbilevy

    This is my ring. How do you like my ring? Guys, did you see my ring? Did I MENTION I HAVE ON THIS RING?

  • TieDye64

    Mom on vacation in Vegas looking for a hookup.

  • Candigirl1968

    Strangely, she seems to be having the same problem as Julianne Hough – the inability to understand what “dressing for your age” means.  Instead of doing young hoochie, Miley is doing old club cougar. 

  • quiltrx

    This says “desperation dress” to me.  You’re marrying Liam Hemsworth, for fuck’s sake. How about wearing a little class to go with that rock?

    • sagecreek

      What? She’s marrying Baby Hem?

      Well, that’ll last.

  • Not crazy about the dress – it suits what she is trying to project of her personality but it’s kinda Klassy.  Hate me but I actually love the shoes… just not with this outfit.

  • ballerinawithagun

    Return Jennifer Aniston’s dress to her now!

  • Actually love the shoes.

  • Something is definitely wrong.  When I saw the thumbprint, I thought it was Lindsay Lohen.  I thought it was L.L. looking pretty good, for a change, but…..

  • ccm800

    The Anchorwoman hair and makeup is gross

  • makeup. her eyes are CAKED in mascara and liner. you can have a dark eye and still have it be light, honey! the nude lip for me personally isnt my favourite but its probably the youngest thing about htis look.

    hair. miley please, go crazy and shave off half your hair. go pixie cut or something. please.
