Miley Cyrus was remarkably reserved on the red carpet of the 2013 American Music Awards, held on Sunday at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.
The boundaries-breaking songstress has lately kept us on our toes, keeping us guessing about which fashion side we’ll see—overtly skin-baring or sophisticatedly dazzling.
She left the daring edge for another occasion—no doubt for her closing performance later in the show—simply parading out a Versus Versace white pantsuit for her more androgynous arrival.
Sure, the jacket was plunging and there was a flicker of punk edge thanks to the oversized gold safety pin accents. But tame was still the name of this game, right down to her standard black Saint Laurent pumps and small dose of Lorraine Schwartz jewels.
She even went for a bare-faced approach (her bleached eyebrows have thankfully been restored) whilst leaving her cropped ’do without its signature voluminous attitude.
Perhaps this look only felt lacklustre because we are used to Miley making such a style scene. Still, there was something refreshing about this safer statement.
