Style Icons 2013 – Miley Cyrus

It is quite a feat to be named both best and worst dressed star of the year, but in 2013 Miley Cyrus has certainly polarised opinion. The days of Hannah Montana have long since disappeared, as have the boho period and the glamorous Hollywood look that was far too old for a girl barely out of her teens. This has been the year that Miley Cyrus was the name on everyone’s lips, and she made sure her wardrobe would also be a talking point, for both the right and wrong reasons.

Aside from the now infamous ‘twerking’ outfit, which made Miley look nude and encased in a giant condom, I think Miley has made some fabulous style choices this year. She has often looked cool, stylish and age appropriate. Despite the high suggestion of sex appeal, I often find Miley reminding me of Madonna at the period of Papa Don’t Preach, sexy but with a tomboyish air. I love the fact that the current inspiration seems to be coming from the 1990s, with a Kate Moss/Lisa Bruce style dress for the X Factor, and a Marc Jacobs mermaid style for 2013 Night of stars. Her new hairstyle, a 90s style blunt bob is just so Drew Barrymore, with strong Gwen Stefani style make-up completely the strong, glamorous, but always fun look.

Miley X Factor

Miley’s style may not be to everyone’s taste, but it is never less than interesting, and when she is on-screen it is hard to take your eyes off her. She could simply have continued with her cute cookie cutter style prettiness and been like every other Hollywood starlet, instead she opts for the trouser suit over the evening dress, the catsuit over the beaded mini. Love her or loathe her, she has made a statement and impact this year that has left others standing in her wake. The future looks bright for Miley Cyrus.

MTV EMA’S – The best looks.

Sunday saw the MTV European Music Awards. Lady divas  were out in force with Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Jessie J and Katy B all in attendance. But, as seems to be usual from the MTV fright shows, seriously good fashion looks were a bit thin on the ground. Lady Gaga looked like she’d lost her heart to a starship trouper in futuristic Paco Rabanne,Katy Perry came as a bad Frenchie from Grease lookalike complete with kitsch 50s outfit and pink hair, whilst Jennifer Metcalfe wore Olivia Newton John’s bad girl trousers from the same film.

Still, there were a few looks worth checking out again, and here they are.

Jessie J showed that a leopard print maxi dress is something that is not confined to the summer with her vibrant Dolce and Gabbana gown. Her Marcel wave hair looked similar  to the style sported by Fearne Cotton at present. This is a dramatic departure for Jessie and I think it suits her.

Mango Animal print maxi £114.90

Selena Gomez was the presenter on the night and wore lots of outfits,  but my favourite was the exquisite white Marchesa dress that she arrived in. Some have dismissed this as being a bit Ice Queen, or Swan Lake, but I prefer to see this as a beautiful snow princess. She is so fresh and pretty that she is able to pull this look off with aplomb.

Aldo Dezenzo shoe £60

Hayden Panattiere kept to that classic colour palette of black and white for her simply chic outfit. It wasn’t exactly a rock and roll outfit, but it was neat and stylish and looked great with her funky crop.
