Here is your Daily Recommended Allowance of Miley, America.

Not that this is really worth analyzing, but it’s weird how the … um… “outfit,” looks pure “1988 backup dancer,” but the shoes are pure 1998 and the hair’s 2013. It’s a mish-mash of a bunch of (mostly music-inspired) semi-trashy styles from the last 25 years.
We sure hope she didn’t go near any open flames all night, because that bra and skirt look like they could go up in a puff of pink smoke upon contact with a dry, hot room.

What’s with the shoulder-hunching thing? All of her little affectations (the tongue, the shoulders, the rigid smile) all add up to someone who doesn’t come across remotely sincere or genuine. Of course that’s the whole point of affectations and certainly “genuine” isn’t a quality found in roughly 95% of celebrities, but she just comes off so tense and on-the-verge. We suppose that’s at least partially why this persona grates so much. It doesn’t feel like a pure expression of who she is, a la Madonna or Gaga. It feels like a very hard-to-maintain facade.
Anyway, weirdly enough, we don’t mind this outfit. Sure, there’s trashiness she’s trying so hard to get across, but for the most part she’s covered and in an odd way, the outfit flatters her. Certainly more than the getup she’s wearing above, anyway. The stars just made us laugh. She’s exhausting.
