Miley Cyrus in Chanel in New York City

Posted on July 15, 2013

We can do nothing but bow down in respect for this chickie.


Miley Cyrus in a Chanel dress as she leaves the Condé Nast building in New York City.

Because it takes some SERIOUS image-management/style chops to put a perfectly prim little Chanel little black dress on, skip the bra part of the equation, and exit an air-conditioned building out onto a hot July street in front of waiting photographers.

BRAVA, darling. Excellent nipple deployment. We couldn’t be prouder of your attention-seeking skills.


Also, the white pumps really work!

      No, I think they are her original boobs 😀

      • Erica Woods Tucker

        That’s was great!

    • Ronica Skarphol Brownson

      If she wanted to look 35, she nailed it. Oh, wait…

      • teensmom99

        She’s working her way down–sometimes she dresses like a Miami Grandma so 35 is young for her.

      • drdarke

        I was completely fine with this look on her at first – a bit mature, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing when you sometimes appear in public as a Walking Wardrobe Malfunction(TM Whoever First Came Up With The Term).

        Then I saw the nipples – and now I can’t unsee them….

    • Annarosa

      underwear next time?
      and yeah, white pumps approved this time.

      • MoHub

        Yep. I, too, don’t think the bra is the only piece of missing underwear. At least the dress isn’t white.

    • MilaXX

      RiRi wannbe.

      • flamingoNW

        yep, that’s what I thought. Rihanna post, then Rihanna WANNABE post.

      • gabbilevy

        Not particularly a fan of either, but I find Miley to be FAR more stylish than Ri. This is cheeky. Ri is WTFkery.

    • annabelle archer

      SHUT. THE. FUCK. UP.

    • Gotham Tomato

      It is a rare bird who can make Chanel look tacky.


      • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

        You are back!

      • Rand Ortega

        Hi GT! Always a slice!

    • SassyMcFrench

      I’m trying to be critical because I’m not her biggest fan, but I like it all. Especially bright red lips during the day. You rock those lips!

      • Danielle L

        The red lips are giving me total Jessica Hamby vibes, especially in the last picture.

    • dorothea_brooke

      Why are celebrities so thirsty?

      • filmcricket

        They drink water instead of eating.

        • formerlyAnon

          Mostly this I think.

          (The older ones may care that staying hydrated improves the skin and helps keep the vocal cords in order.)

      • Kiltdntiltd

        Because they are constantly dehydrated from talking about themselves and their work all day long.

      • annabelle archer

        The drips?

      • KSpence

        It’s probably just all the cholera

      • H2olovngrl

        Maybe she has a crying scene coming up.

    • PeaceBang

      Ah, youth. She’s gorgeous. Gorgeous in Chanel and with a gorgeous young bod. I can’t argue with it.

    • Diego!

      I don’t know why, but she reminds me of Angelina Jolie in her early years of spotlight… of course Miley is the talent-less version. I’m not sure about this one. She made look a Chanel dress really tacky. Sorry guys!

    • RedRaven617

      She looks like she was in court (a la Lohan) and forgot a major piece of clothing.

    • jenno1013

      The white pumps really work, and so do the red lips! I can’t be upset about the nipples in Chanel…she’s Miley, she’s…not allowed, exactly, she just…will.

    • Little_Olive

      What?? The dress looks so dated. If it wasn’t Chanel, she’d be any random, tired secretary.

    • Matthew Davie

      Does she EVER wear a bra? Kathy Griffin had a hilarious bit in her most recent standup show about Miley’s aversion to underwear.

      • RebeccaKW

        My nipples are sore from the chafing we all know hers are getting.

      • demidaemon

        Occasionally. Very occasionally.

    • unbornfawn


    • marlie

      This would be so adorable if it weren’t for the, ahem, headlights. There’s a time to deploy them, and this isn’t it.

    • Lola Channing

      oh honey. Water imported from Fiji. Shame on you. Drink local. NYC tap water is perfectly fine.

      • snarkykitten

        Fiji Water is really good though, for some reason. All bottled water tastes the same, but there’s something different about it

        • decormaven

          My chief reason for buying Fiji is that it will fit in the forward pocket of the airplane seat at the same time the tray table is employed. Those huge honking bottles get in the way.

        • Lola Channing

          yes. It’s expensive and celebrities use it. Try Voss. At least it comes in a glass bottle. Marine life would appreciate less use of plastic bottles.

      • chylde

        Maybe it’s tap water inside a Fiji bottle. That’s what we do! 😉

      • Adriana_Paula

        NYC tap water is quite tasty!

    • Monzerrat Ontiveros

      I’m crying for Cory and for a blog that used to talk a lot about glee is disrespectful that you’re ignoring him. So Sad from your part.

    • Donna Tabor

      If I had her perky little post-teen rack I wouldn’t wear a bra, either.

      She looks so great here.

    • VictoriaDiNardo

      As a 70’s era, no-bras-please-we-are-liberated / Carly Simon “No Secrets” / formerly perky-breasted girl….I say what the hell – do it while you can!

      • formerlyAnon

        It was the only time in my life that my lack of endowment was a real asset.

        • IMNAngryLiberal

          Yup, me too. My much more well endowed sister was sooo jealous of me back then. (I am always puzzled at how verklempt people on this board get about nipples.)

    • decormaven

      Gosh, when she is looking down, her face reminds me of Madonna back in the day. Call me old-fashioned, but a chemise would have been a welcome addition here, just for a smooth line under a knit fabric.

    • Gaby

      I think she’s trying to channel Sharon Stone, down to the hair.
      Her roots always make me sad though.

      • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

        Damn you, beat me to the punch.

      • The Gifted Collector

        I have been wanting to mention the Sharon Stone resemblance since Miley cut her hair. It’s particularly strong when she wears her hair straight up.

    • StellaZafella


    • majorbedhead

      Surprisingly understated, except for the nipplage, of course.

    • snarkykitten

      Baby, it’s Cold Outside

    • Frank G

      I know I say this everytime but does anybody else notice that she is giving 90s Madonna realness?! Go back and look at all her picts and say that isn’t deliberate.

    • YoungSally

      In the photos she looks a little bit like Madge circa 1988-89.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      Go braless while you can, honey. Before you know it, you’ll be wearing one everywhere.

      • NOLA_gal

        …on her head, as socks, even comfy mittens! 😀

    • Anniebet

      She always looks so fricking self-conscious in these pap pics. Nipples, bah.. big deal. Grow up, little girl.

    • formerlyAnon

      She looks good.

      (I’m so old that I remember when a lot of even fairly well endowed women under 30 went braless for a few years there.)

    • Jeremiah Capacillo

      I actually really like this look. It has a sort of late 90s, young Carrie Bradshaw type of aura around it.

      • sweetlilvoice

        I see what you mean but Carrie would be wearing a black bra under a white shirt/halter. SJP never showed what all the other girls did.

    • lilyvonschtupp

      I hate her music, but she’s looking super cute here.

      Nice rack!

    • Suzy Smith

      What is wrong with nipples? All mammals have them. I have never understood the obsession with making sure that you never ever have look like you have nipples.

    • MarieLD

      Didn’t Nina tells us several seasons back that no one wears bras anymore? A least among the fabulous people.

      • demidaemon

        If she did, she’s been smoking way too much crack and hanging out with Heidi way too much.

      • MoHub

        Don’t know about “nobody,” but Nina herself does not wear bras.

    • demidaemon

      You know, I could get behind this if SHE’D ONLY PUT ON A F*N BRA! (caps are necessary). Yes, Miley, we know your tits are high and tight. Whoo-hoo. We don’t need to see them ALL THE GODDAMN TIME! In ten years, your boobs will thank you for giving them proper support (and my eyes will thank you in six months if you invest in some brassieres).

      • sweetlilvoice

        I have to agree with you. It’s called being an adult, that means wearing a bra. Let’s be grateful we all don’t have to wear gloves, hats, girdles, stockings and garter belts like women did not that long ago.

        • marishka1

          And maybe now we should be grateful we don’t have to wear bras if we don’t want to.

    • largishbearishAtlish

      As a gay man, part of me just threw up in my mouth….saggy girly parts…ewwww….

    • nancymae

      So… did Karl Lagerfeld swoon when he saw these photos and those nips or did he faint after shrieking, “Nipples non!”??

      • Anniebet

        He’s probably taken a vow of silence and gone on a pilgrimage until she quits wearing his dresses.

    • SorayaS

      Nope nope nope. Wouldn’t like the dress even if she wore a bra. The shoes and bag are hideous as is the hair (sorry Miles!)

      BUT… where do I get that adorable handcuff necklace?! I love it! Clearly not Chanel, right?

    • DamH

      looks so much like JB. not loving the styling

    • quiltrx

      I didn’t know the “take off one thing” rule meant BRA. I’ve been misled.

    • Kirara

      sharon stone has some competition…

    • MannahattaMamma

      I would like her to go away. Far away. And leave the rest of us alone.

    • kaycem

      she legitimately hates wearing bras, tho — it’s not an attention thing, she’s just being miley.

      • omg_dora

        As much as I like looking “proper,” I have to give props to any woman who resists the “your breasts must look perfectly round and devoid of nipples at all times” campaign. By this point in the development of feminism, we should be over the habit of forcing ourselves to wear corsetry. If you don’t have a big bust, bras are just a very restricting and uncomfortable additional layer in the summer.

    • Jeff Warhurst

      Young Miranda Priestly… lol.

    • veleri

      I can see Angelina Jolie as well.

    • queen b*tch

      If I pretend this isn’t Miley Cyrus, I like it…

    • Lesley

      and i was just about to say this girls really stepped it up and looks so put together and non attention-seeking(for once) then i saw the nips….

    • marshmallowjane

      I agree on all counts. Her nips might not have shown so much in her indoor mirror. She’s hot, and she definitely has a flair for style, especially for her age.

    • NoveltyRocker

      What is Condé Nast unleashing on us through Miley Cyrus..?

    • Kathy G

      I’m not sure there is even underpinnings below deck. This is fine, not wondrous but not absolutely hiddy either. I wouldn’t give her shit if I was her mother. She is groomed and looks like she bothered to wear deodorant.

    • J. Preposterice

      this is one of those brilliantly-done outfits where the person wearing it is both impeccably covered AND somehow more naked than they would be if they were bare-assed.

      • Dagney

        Yes yes yes. I love this kind of expression in clothing. I am loving her style lately.

    • Contralto

      Very sweet look, but for the complete lack of undergarments.

      Miley dear, put on a bra. Rome fell, and those will, too.

    • Lizzy

      Sigh… I spent YEARS convincing my teenager that she needed to wear a bra everyday………

    • Jonquil

      Eh. She’s got cute boobs and her nipples point in the same direction. I’ll all for her going braless.

    • hannabanana

      Excellent Nipple Deployment is the name of my new cover band.
