Miley Cyrus in NYC

Posted on July 25, 2012

Y’know, for the longest time, Miley was dressing like someone 30 years her senior and it was causing T & Lo an awful lot of agita. We railed against her and made jokes at her expense and it had no effect. Why, if we didn’t know better we’d swear she was ignoring us. Or had never heard of us. But that’s crazy talk. No, it was clear all along that she was just fucking with us.

Because look:

Miley Cyrus out shopping in New York in a Minkpink top, Ecote shorts and Chanel Boots.

Ecote Soft Woven Pull-On Short

You guys, Miley can TOTALLY dress like a streetwalker when she wants to and that’s TOTALLY youthful.

God bless ya, girl. This looks like a meth binge in clothing form, but at least you’re no longer dressing like Helen Mirren.

      Whatever. I will take the Helen Mirren dressing over this She definitely looks like she took a line of meth.

    • jimmack

      New contest: For the next month lets give an award to the starlet carring the LARGEST purse. I think we can all agree that Miley is in the running. That bag could hold the Sandwich Islands. Girl, do something with that hair.

      • VeryClaire

        Yes, wtf with the giant bags? What the hell are these people carrying in there and why would they want to haul luggage around all day?

        • Gayer Than Thou

          I’m guessing that the size of the purse is intended to make sure we notice that, in fact, she’s carrying a purse.  Not being purse-savvy myself, I don’t recognize it, but I’m willing to bet your next paycheck that it’s an expensive designer bag.

        • LesYeuxHiboux

           Maybe it’s a bid at balance after carrying the eensiest clutches on the red carpet.

      • littlemac8

        It’s ON!!! I’m pretty sure I could fold up my yogi self and fit in that bag!!

      • Sara__B

        The giant bag is to hold the enormous boots when her poor feet and legs can’t take the heat anymore. (It is summer in NYC, right?)

        • kimmeister

          That’s exactly what I was thinking!!!

      • 1carmelita

         And it has a leash.

        • Sarah Adams

          I KNOW! What is up with that?!

          • Lori

            Seriously. Unless the bag contains the nuclear launch codes or something equally vital to national security there is just no excuse for that.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      You guys, she can’t be tamed, ok?

      • call_me_schmeg


      • sagecreek

        Billy Ray? Is that you?

    • afabulous50

      I love the look the other woman is giving her in the first photo!  Priceless.

      • formerlyAnon

        Yes. That is an “Emperor’s New Clothes sighting” look.

    • Kobe Ip

      is she on crack?

    • TVKimmy

      I just can’t with those boots. I could actually forgive everything else, writing it off as youthful, if she was wearing a pair of hightops or something along that vein.

      • CozyCat

        I could forgive the boots if she would just let her hair go back to its natural color. 

        • Democracy Diva

          I could forgive the boots if it weren’t 8000 degrees out in NYC.

    • FlamingJune1967

      I actually really like the top!  that’s all.

    • jilly_d

      this would be cute if not for those boots.  and seriously, if it’s warm enough for that outfit, HOW is it not too hot for the boots?  Bad Miley.  Anybody know where that crescent necklace comes from?  Love it.

    • Town

      I love the side eye that lady in the white is giving her.  

      • Aurumgirl

         If you look at the photos, everyone is looking at her and wondering “What the hell are you wearing?” at her outfit.  Even in picture number 4, where no one is actually visible around her, the man in front of her has a smidge of manic, terrified expression in his eyes, as if he’s wondering, “Is SHE following me, now?”

        • Cindi Williams

          See, I looked at her and thought, “Why are you taking out the trash in that outfit?”. Then TLo helpfully informed us she’s out shopping.

          • LesYeuxHiboux

             Count me as another who thought she was taking out the trash. Now I understand: she is completely out of reasonable outfits to wear. Perhaps her puppy ate her wardrobe?

    • teensmom99

      I’m wondering how stars live in an alternate universe where they can wear boots in almost 100 degree weather.

    • J D

      Honestly, at this point Miley has exhausted me.  I can no longer rail against her fashion choices – she has beaten me into submission.  Go with God sweetheart.

    • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      Two words. Yeast. Infection. 

    • mjude

      seriously miley, loose the boots, its flipping july!

    • eclare

      I feel like she’s channeling early ’90s Paula Abdul, but I could be wrong.

    • l3icest3r

      I really like the boots, even though Uncle Karl didn’t design them for stubby legs like mine. 😀

    • formerlyAnon

      Preferred the old woman looks. But then, I’m approaching that end of the spectrum, already there from a fashion perspective.

    • Lebogang Mogashoa

      She’s  just being Miley! 

    • Dorothy & Michael n/a

      I think she’s on her way to her S&M class (bag is chained to her wrist, the boots an obvious giveaway!) and just brought the kitchen trash out with her to save time later.

    • formerlyAnon

      Hey! Next to last photo: is her purse chained to her wrist?

      Like she’s gonna forget & leave something that size behind?

      And that’s gonna hurt if she gets mugged.

      • alyce1213

        Now I can’t get the image of her being dragged by her wrist along the cobblestones out of my head.

        • formerlyAnon

           Unpleasant, isn’t it?

          • alyce1213

            Not so unpleasant, in a way . . .

      • eclare

        Considering how often I lose or forget my purse, I’ve considered having it surgically attached to my wrist.  A chain seems like a reasonable compromise.

        • formerlyAnon

          I’ve found that keeping my cell phone (which seems so VERY essential to life) in my purse has improved the situation for me. It is difficult (though, I’ve found, not impossible – which is pathetic) to forget the purse you are holding, last thing before you leave, in order to make sure the phone is in it.

          • eclare

            Sadly, I already keep my phone in my purse.  End result is usually that I lose both!  Although once or twice I have been lucky enough to be able to call my phone, have someone answer, and endup getting both back.

    • Erica Bracken

      Frightful!  The shorts could work with something else?  I might have to work on that.

    • єℓιzαвєтн。

      Is that a thread hanging down from her shorts in the last picture?

      • alyce1213

        Could it be the cheesy body chain — starts around the neck, crosses over the boobs, down and out the shorts?  Or maybe it’s an impression from the other chain.

        • Tammy_4

          doesn’t she love to wear the cheesy body chain?  I think she is wearing one here, that appears to go from the neck and out the shorts.  Ack.

    • cclaussen3

      Ha- She’s got a big mark on her left thigh from the chain strap from the purse.

      • l3icest3r

        Aaaah, that’s what it is! It looks so Frankenstein-y!

    • Ednest

      Yeah but I want that necklace.

    • Gabriella M

      I love the shorts and the sunglasses. Hate everything put together.
      I would take those shorts and put them with a breezy white button down, gold flat sandals, and a basket purse. And that’s just pulling ideas out of my own wardrobe.

    • MissAnnieRN

      I wonder if there is a setting or an outfit that includes the following elements WITHOUT reading as “step above your average hooker but cheaper than an escort service”
      1.) thigh high boot
      2.) 2″ inseam shorts
      3.) bare midriff
      4.) visible lingerie

      I’m gonna go with no.

    • alyce1213

      Was this yesterday?  Because it was really hot and humid.  Those boots are just ridiculous for this weather.  Is she that crazy?
      I hate that skinny body chain she wears, it always adds tacky.But I love that she was captured on one of the city’s rare, remaining cobblestone streets; looks like SOHO, maybe Greene St.

    • SapphoPoet

      She certainly goes from one extreme to the other. Also, that bag is big enough to use as a shelter. 

      My toddler also insisted on wearing his boots to the park yesterday; the difference being that he’s three and doesn’t know any better.

    • Sarah

      The outfit is bad, the boots are making my feet sweat as I look at them, and WHY must she continue to sport that stupid torso-chain nonsense under EVERY OUTFIT. I think if I had that kind of stuff under my clothes, it would feel as if ants were crawling about on my flesh. I guess she thinks its “hot,” along with her boots and hotpants.

    • christinewithanx

      No, no, no, Miley’s a scientist, y’all. She knows that in order to maintain proper homeostasis, something must be exposed if something is covered up. If clothing covered her belly (a science term) and legs, the ridiculous heat caused by wearing giant leather boots in 90 degree SoHo weather would cause “positive feedback” which could cause her metabolism to stop and ultimately death. Which would be a total bummer (another science term), y’all.

    • Scarlet39

      I love how the woman in the first pic is looking at her. 

    • gabbilevy

      That is one hell of a terrible dye job. And everything else.

    • Judy_J

      She looks like a candidate for Joan Rivers’ Fashion Police game “Starlet or Streetwalker”.  I would have guessed streetwalker.

    • redhead with tattoos

      Jesus Fuck, that’s hideous.

    • MilaXX

      I’m all for celebrating a weight loss, and each piece could work separately, but this is a HAM. Combined with the trash bag she looks like a crack ho going to sell somebody’s DVR for $5.

    • Michael Rios

      The look is jumbled as hell, but she’s honestly just wearing standard hipster clothes combined in a stupid way. She looks like she’s going to Coachella for the first time, and doesn’t know how uncomfortable those boots will be by the end of the day.

    • Susan Sontag

      She’s recently been sitting somewhere with her purse in her lap.  You can see the imprint of the chain on her leg in the last pic.

    • Lisa Dugan

      I just want those boots off.  I’m having a freak out at my computer thinking of how hot they must have been.  It’s been so yuck in NYC.  SHUDDER

    • Vlasta Bubinka

      Teenage Mutant Ninja Whooker… whooker in the hip boots! sing it!

    • crash1212

      Ugh. This is so wrong on every level. Also, I wonder if that body chain thingy she always wears bugs me on a molecular level. 

    • korilian

      God, I used to wear tacky shit like that when I was a kid. I even had the holy sweater thing, though I wore it with a top. 

    • MajorBedhead

      Is she taking her trash for a walk?

      I just can’t even with this entire getup. 

    • nannypoo

      I can’t stand her either way, but at least when she was in her Ethel Merman Drag period she was covered. Here she just looks whorish.

    • AudreysMom

      for all the money this girl has there is always something a little trailer park about her and I fear, always will be, however she dresses. 

    • Sandra Oh

      The clothes are expensive and she looks cute.  Damned if you do and damned if you don’t.  Eh, let her be.

      • formerlyAnon

         I have to say, that the clothes are expensive just makes the poor choices worse. Because she has so much more choice than if her budget were tight.

        But she’s young. She has the right to look awful sometimes, I certainly exercised that right at her age. Though differently.

      • Jason M. Galloway

         Actually, the shorts are only 39 bucks at the evil Urban Outfitters…

        • formerlyAnon

           Ha! Which probably means I’ve seen them on some of the young things hereabout, yet none of their outfits seared themselves in pirate costume/streetwalker/boho hipster glory upon my memory.

          In this “mix & match your shopping ensemble” exercise, poor dear Miley scores well only in enthusiasm.

    • butter nut

      she looks like a kid pop star.  so this is probably her most appropriate outfit ever.

    • Jason M. Galloway

      Vivian Ward realness…

    • mrspotts66

      the boots are fun.
      wonder how many condoms she has stashed in them?

      i hope she goes brunette again.  the blonde does nothing for her.

    • AgingWell

      Speaking of Helen Mirren, what’s she up to? Will she be gracing red carpets soon?

    • snarkykitten

      there was this insane pcp addict who lived in the building across from me (I haven’t exactly lived in the lap of luxury here) & this outfit reminds me of something she’d wear. down to the over tanned skin & unflattering dye job.

      plus what the hell are those lines on her stomach?

    • TomBord

      more faux-punk mix’n it w/ some lovely neo-tragic …………  oh my achy breaky hart. 

    • Introspective

      Its been crazy hot in nyc. With this dark colored, body hugging outfit and those eye searing boots, she must have stank to high heaven by the time she got back to her hotel, from head to (especially) toe.


      I know someone who would be all over those shorts like…well, Miley on a meth binge, I suppose. Why (faux?) leather boots in July? STANKY BOOTS.

    • PinkLemon

      My favorite part of this look is the purse chain imprint on her right thigh in the last photo. Stars – they’re JUST like us!!

    • marilyn

      She looks like a stripper.  Her feet must be REALLY hot and smelly.

    • kimmeister

      Nice abs.

    • Leslie Kim

      does anyone else think she looked distressingly like lindsay lohan?  don’t do it, miley!  the way of li-lo lies disaster!

    • guest2visits

      So desperately hungry for attention, always.
      Do I even have to say it; tacky child hooker and that ever present dumbass smack face.

    • TheOriginalLulu

      This is schizophrenia in clothing form. That top says sexy evening wear, the shorts are daytime cute and fun and the boots belong under a long skirt on a frigid winter day. If this pic was taken yesterday, I want all the non-NY-ers here to know that it was 93 degrees out. She’s out of her mind. 

    • Basket

      The legs of the women in the background pictures in New York are always fab. 

    • unbornfawn

      I love you guys!!!  Those boots in this heat???

      • tinyredlocks

        OMG, seriously! My feet are sweating just looking at her!

    • Imasewsure

      Now she is dressing like Jane Fonda… luckily 1970’s Jane Fonda not 70 year old Jane Fonda which is a start anyway.

    • KaileeM

      Good for you, Miley! Take it from a woman in her mid-30s who just had her second kid, wear those short shorts for as long as you can!

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      this isn’t just regular stank; this is meth whore at sunrise in walmart buying cigarettes and pampers stank.

    • sashaychante

      what is up with boots in the summertime?  and leather?  does no one want to pay for a pedi anymore?

    • Gayer Than Thou

      Uhm, yay for young girls dressing like hookers…?

    • margaret meyers

      Herp derp.

    • Lynzee Michelle Lamb

      I’m totally fixated on that weird scar/stray thread on her upper right thigh.

      • l_c_ann

        That ‘scar’ is the same size and pattern as the pocket book’s shoulder strap.  Maybe she sat with the heavy things on her lap and the impression remained?

        • formerlyAnon

           I think it’s the imprint not of the shoulder strap, but of the “chain” which attaches at one end to her wrist and the other to the end of the purse.

    • Dr. Derf van der Derf

      I would actually like this with different shoes.

    • KathKo

      Rigth up your alley, girl.

      • aeg66

        Yeah but thats the alley the roll the johns in

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      I like each of the pieces of this outfit (okay, I don’t like what’s going on above the waist but I can accept it as crucial to Miley’s sense of personal style). None of these pieces should be together, ever. The boots with some skinnies and one of her torn-up tees? Fine. The hot-pants with sandals and a floaty (not transparent) top? Okay. That crochet crop-top/bra combo with a nice, breezy maxi skirt? Go right ahead, Miley. The processed blond of her hair is the cherry on the “turning tricks for meth” sundae.

      Those boots must be absolutely puddled with sweat.  

      • Mary Stone

         Individually nothing is heinous, and those shorts are actually cute and kudos to her for having the bod to wear them.  Taken all together it’s a meth hooker trashtastrophe.  And you are completely right, the hair is the “cherry” on this dubious “sundae” —

    • Roey Thorpe

      I’d much rather see the actual Helen Mirren wearing anything–or nothing–at all.

    • Dot

      Can’t she afford a better dye job? This blonde-in-a-bottle shade screams Clairol.

    • Jill Donley Rege

      Why do I ALWAYS look at her and thing “poor girl”?

    • Samuel Donovan

       I actually whole-heartedly agree with you guy–I’m loving me some Hannah Methtana.

    • SophieCollier

      Good for her.  I totally would have worn that at her age.  It was hard as hell to find flat-soled over-the-knee boots in the late 80’s.

    • Sierra Delta

      It looks like her white bag is plastic.  Couldn’t she afford to buy a reusable one?

      Ignoring everything else on Miley.

    • BeeBeauNYC

      That’s what a lot of money and lack of taste will buy you. 

    • aeg66

      Hey folks maybe she came straight from the set of Law & Order SVU. They do shoot in NYC.

    • aeg66

      Is the chain on her thigh an imprint or another tattoo???

    • LambeeBaby

      Aztec hooker.

    • frankystein123

      That would be an insult… to DAME Helen Mirren. Bitch please, just look at Ms. Cyrus here, one minute looking like a cougar the next looking like a whore (not PC, but totally true).

    • Vera

      Yuck. Expensive yuck.

    • imakeart

      Helen Mirren?  Would never have expected you guys to give her that much credit!

    • Sara Munoz Munoz

      Summer 2012 shall go down in the history books as “Season of the Celebrity Stankboot.”

    • JasonKL

      The “sheer or crochet top plus bra” combo will never not look cheap-hooker to me.  Fishnet top plus bra looks like a 90’s chick who listened to korn and smoked behind the gym. These are not good looks, ever. 

      Those shorts and boots could be very cute paired with something else, though. 

    • alwaysanswerc

      The outfit is bad enough, but that HAIR. Lawd, girl. Back away from the peroxide.

    • Srw27

      I can’t imagine how badly her legs are sweating in those boots. **shudder**

      She puts the “trash” in “trailer trash”

    • LinXGUA

      Miley is cute. Even when she’s dressed as a octagenarian hippie. This screams Madonna to me. Drunk Madonna. 
      Cute Drunk Madonna.
      So, it’s still kind of “old” and cute … I guess that’s her style?

    • fursa_saida

      The shorts are cute. The rest is horrific. And the HAIR, oy, bring me my smelling salts.

    • Kathryn

      “meth binge in clothing form” – HI-larious!

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      She looks like she’s straight out of “Pretty Woman”, except of course she isn’t pretty.  That she spent or was given those hideous and yet ridiculously expensive clothes and decided to put them together is a tragedy.  And I hate the blond hair.  Also, who the hell wears thigh high boots in July in New York City??  Sheesh.

    • quiltrx

      Why is it that, since she got that beautiful rock from that beautiful man, she keeps dressing like someone who sleeps in an abandoned building and OBVIOUSLY  carries everything she owns in that bag.  Oh, and that asks you if you’re looking for a good time.

    • Anathema_Device

      She just has terrible, terrible taste. Absolutely awful.

    • LilyPad


    • neofashionista

      I love the line “meth binge in clothing form” this is sooooo true. Thanks for that
