Miley Cyrus on her style: ‘White trash & Chanel. That’s my ultimate look’

Miley Cyrus

Remember when Miley Cyrus decided to annoy all of us in a different way other than sticking out her tongue and posed with scads of Chanel bags in London? It was mildly offensive for lovers of true fashion and just plain irritating for those of us who tolerate Miley’s faux-rebellion but dislike that she’s rubbing her riches in our faces.

Well, Miley is still using Chanel for her benefit, and I’m pretty sure the label doesn’t mind because there’s no way they let Miley out of that store without giving her some freebies. That’s just the way it works, you know? The people with the most money get stuff for free all the time, but I’m losing my train of thought here. Miley is currently plugging her upcoming performing gig at the MTV VMAs on August 25, so she’s made a little video for MTV Style (vid is not embeddable, but you can view it here). In the meantime, here are some excerpts of Miley talking about her grills again:

Miley Cyrus

On her personal style: “You can just mix white trash and Chanel, that’s me. That’s my ultimate look. Pretty much everything is weird bondage stores except obviously my jewelry–gotta keep it classy with Chanel. I wear a lot of jewelry during the day, so I pretty much just come with my own jewelry, and give me some underwear to wear with it, and I call it a day.”

On her three grills, which she has with her at all times: “One Lil Jon style, one more Beyonce style cause she has one with vampire teeth. Mine kind of have vampire teeth, but they have a space so it’s my classy, dainty one. And then I have the plain gold when I’m trying to be chill, and I don’t want to be too in your face.”

On her onesies: “I have a hippo, which my boyfriend thinks is really sexy. So when I come downstairs it’s Hungry Hungry Hippo, and I just go and smash everything and eat everything in sight.”

[From MTV Style]

I find it so amusing that Miley carries these grills with her everywhere and acts like she’s been doing so for years when her new image didn’t really start taking shape until she signed on with Larry Rudolph earlier this year. So ridiculous.

Also, I can’t even fathom how Miley is describing a grill as “classy” and “dainty.” But sure, white trash and Chanel. She’s totally correct.

  1. I will never understand the admiration people have for this girl’s body: she’s super-thin but she has no boobs and no butt, she’s just skinny. Not my ideal body AT ALL.

  2. aims says:

    She’s still sticking to the “boyfriend” story. The more I hear from her the more I want scream. Nothing like a rich white girl trying to go hard.

  3. Amelia says:

    Poor Coco must be turning in her grave.

  4. Willa says:

    Well she’s achieved her look. Touch more trash than Chanel though.

  5. brin says:

    Definitely has the white trash part down.

  6. Pants says:

    Interesting that she said her “boyfriend” and not her “fiancee”…

  7. Jennifer says:

    All I want to know is WHY this girl can’t keep her damn tongue INSIDE her mouth?

  8. Jaime says:

    Once upon a time, I actually liked this girl. Now.. just ew. She’s repulsive. However, I will give her credit for one thing.. She’s apparently a pretty good actress, as there’s no way all of THAT just came out of nowhere. This is who she always was. Lizard tongue and all. She played the public like a fiddle.

    • RosettaStoned says:

      Yeah I hafta agree, at first I thought the ENTIRE thing was contrived, now after watching some interviews with her (and having grown up in the South and watched her dad rise and fall in popularity, as well as personally knowing people who know the family and babysat Miley & Trace when they were little), I think a lot of the trashiness was there all along, just waiting to burst out. “You can take the girl out of the trailer park…” and I say that as an admirer of trailer parks and one-time double-wide denizen.

      But Miley, one thing: most ‘white trash’ people don’t dress like you ON PURPOSE… again she displays her ignorance of cultural nuances. ‘Trashiness’ is not so much a way of dressing as a certain lack of grace.

  9. erika says:

    Ditto on the trash

    F+*&&@#K THAT TONGUE!

    so try hard and desperate i know i flashed my ”lizard tongue”" all the time in …. JR HIGH!! It got me attention..

    Jr high high….7th grade…

    In JRHIGH!!!

  10. krrng says:

    I hate the term “white trash” so, so much. It implies that for people of colour, being “trashy” is the default, but when white people adopt behaviour deemed trashy it’s an exception to the rule.

  11. SolitaryAngel says:

    I hate this kid but I came here to BEG you for the love of all that is holy please STOP showing pics of her with her gotdamn tongue out all the time!! PLEASE?? Pretty please?

    I call for a moratorium on the trashy tongue. Who’s with me?

    *crossing fingers*

  12. Lulu86 says:

    I am suprised Chanel would give her freebies since they are know for being classy.Remember how people were so turned off by Burberry because so many ‘chavs’were wearing their knock offs?

  13. Samtha says:

    If she ever gains any kind of self-awareness as she ages (though that’s a long shot for a child star), she’ll be embarrassed as hell by this phase.

  14. La jolie now Andrea says:

    Enough of this gal already please I beg of you guys!

  15. Susie Q says:

    Well, she’s got the trash part down pat..

  16. blue marie says:

    she looks cute in the top photo, everything else is extremely tacky.

  17. Becca says:

    Did anyone else notice she said boyfriend and not fiancé?

  18. LMB says:

    @SolitaryAngel, I’m with you. She looks absolutely stupid that way. She can wear all the Chanel clothes she wants, but that doesn’t give her class.

    • Katie Too says:

      Has she really ever claimed to be classy? Serious question as I can see her side re fact that she’s just finishing puberty, worked hard while young, and has a ton.of money-versus the publicity-hound who just wants to.promote a project.

  19. Darcy P. says:


  20. Tpoe says:

    All this nonsense to distract from the fact that she can’t sing or dance worth a damn…..

  21. skilo says:

    Keep. Your. Damn Tongue. IN YOUR MOUTH!!!!!!
    I am so sick of seeing her walking around with that nasty tongue of hers stuck out so grotesquely, that is not cute, it is not punk, is not hard core, or whatever she is telling herself. It is just stupid and vulgar, and makes me hope she trips and bites the damn thing off!

  22. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    Exactly, tpoe, why do these young try hards reference someone whose life, career, and influence they know nothing about because they are too wrapped up in their little narcissistic celebutard world. She’s the trifecta of repulsiveness, stupidity and classlessness, and all the “rebelliousness” of your typical suburban mall girl.

  23. Emma says:

    She is doing this because people are racting. She is just having fun. Why does it matter to strangers what she wears? She is a young, rich, famous popstar. She can and will do anything she pleases! She literally could not care less if you thinkshe is stupid or classless or immature. Put yourself in her shoes. Would you care?

  24. KatieD says:

    When Oprah claimed to have been discriminated against by a high-end store, some people here said that it’s all about exclusivity and the stores only wanting a certain type of person to be seen with their brand. So using this same logic, why would Chanel or anyone else want their clothing/ bags/ etc to be seen on this tacky girl?! She is going to take whatever she wears and make it look super cheap and tacky, so I don’t think “any publicity is good publicity” in this instance.

  25. Shelly says:

    I liked her new look at first. Now I just wish she would shut up and go away and put her tongue back in her mouth. I just can’t with her “grills” and her constant stupid interviews. And her speaking voice is the most annoying thing ever.

  26. kim says:

    What else is suppose to say?” I tried OH so effing hard and can’t not be white trash. ”

    she’s more Beverly hillbilly tham white trash to be honest tho!

    Calling her white trash is kinda a compliment

  27. wonderwoman21 says:

    Ugh she is such an uneducated moron. She needs to spend more time growing and learning and less time worrying about Chanel and her image.

  28. Jaded says:

    What offends me most is that she is influencing a whole generation of young women to act and dress like complete tramps, and that fame, wealth and an overtly sexual demeanour is important and “empowering”.

    What she really needs to do is to influence young women to get an education, do some good deeds, add value to society, NOT to self-obsess on looks, sexuality and vulgar shock tactics to value oneself.

    • msw says:

      Speaking as a parent of two young girls, i respectfully have to address this. It is not up to celebs to set a good example or tell kids what they should care about. I am my daughters’ role model and their guide for developung values, and we talk about strong women enough that my oldest gets the point (youngest is still a baby). When we see behavior I don’t want her to emulate, we talk about why. This is a much more effective parenting strategy than letting kids get sucked into hero worship and emulation of what they see in the media. Parents, just talk to your kids and it makes such a huge difference. Putting the burden of role modeling on celebs is the absolute WRONG way to go. They will do what they do and it is up to parents to address good and bad behaviors with their own children.

      Media is insidious, but frankly, with all the bs kids are inundated with on a daily basis, i find Miley pretty harmless.

      • Bijlee says:

        Word. No celebrity should be a role model for kids. Maybe they can like them for being “inspiring”, but the celebrity worship has got to stop. Especially the way disney peddles these kids. Not okay. Don’t buy into the merchandise people!

      • LAK says:

        ….but do you know what your kids aren’t around you? the number of parents with angelic at home kids who are misbehaving (entire range of spectrum of misbehaviour from dressing differently and trashily away from the home to downright criminal activity) is huge.

        I am always suspicious of people who say their kids are angels who would never harm a fly. It suggests a very naive attitude or wilful blindness.

    • blaize says:

      @Jaded: “…she is influencing a whole generation of young women to act and dress like tramps…”

      All people have the right to dress however they please. Slut-shaming has done FAR more harm to society over the past thousands of years than the naked human body, women dressing however they want, or women doing certain ‘forbidden’ dance moves. It’s bigotry, and it’s problematic.

      If given the choice between having a daughter who A.) grows up to proudly wear whatever she feels like wearing, has sex in a way or in an amount that traditional conservative society frowns upon BECAUSE SHE WANTS TO, ( sex before marriage, friends with benefits, etc.) or B.) A daughter who grew up to make herself dress modestly, and wait until she was in one deeply-committed, long-term relationship, but she believed that a female’s sexual purity in dress, dance, and sex were the keys to her worth, respectability, and character, and engaged in the process of bullying other females because of their sexual, dance, and wardrobe choices, I’d easily choose the first daughter. I would not want any future daughter of mine to participate in the slut-shaming/virgin-whore/victim-blaming game.

      What is empowering and enjoyable for one woman may not be so for another. Who is one to decide for another? And women have been having sex (conservative-approved sex and conservative-disapproved sex) and wearing (and not wearing) all kinds of things since LONG before this girl was ever born, and they will continue to do so.

  29. Melissa says:

    Five to ten years from today, Miley Cyrus will probably sit down with Oprah or whoever the relevant media queen will be then and say how self-destructive her behavior was during those years when she wore little clothing, when she did it was so trashy she would have been better off naked, her gross approach to twerking, her attention-whoring ways, how and why she stayed with someone who clearly was cheating on her and didn’t even act sorry about it, and whatever scandal will happen if she doesn’t stop this nonsense soon.

    • blaize says:

      Yep. Doing whatever you please with your physical appearance and doing suggestive dance moves is so self-destructive, and so is having one bad/failed relationship. Beyoncé, Pink, and Shakira are writhing in mental agony from all the revealing clothes, dirty-dancing, and bad relationships they experienced when they were in their 20′s.

  30. Asdfg says:

    All she needs is jewelry and panties! Hahahahahahahaha!!!!

    Do your thing Miley! I can’t even hate on you anymore! :mrgreen:

    She’s living in her own world. Her reality is not the same as are reality. Total different realities we live in.

    She’s a try hard but I can’t hate on her anymore. I just find her hilariously embarrassing. :lol:

    I give up defending are generation too! Sorry guys!

  31. Dommy Dearest says:

    Chanel, no. That’s a brand I consider classy. White trash, sweetheart you out trash Honey Boo Boo and her family.

  32. Kristin says:

    My God, I didn’t think it was possible, but she actually gets more unattractive every time I see her. I don’t give a shit about what a “great bod” she supposedly has. Her face is seriously jacked.

  33. coconut says:

    i would love to see no more miley and her tongue on celebitchy.

  34. Ginger says:

    Darling put away your alien lizard tongue! we area ared you are going to turn into ” species”

  35. Barrett says:

    Her look is actually getting boring and predictable. Like you know what kinda things she is wearing and you do not need to look.

  36. LaurieH says:

    White trash and Chanel? No, honey. You don’t look like that. What you DO look like is some sci-fi character from a planet inhabited by lizards who came to earth, landed at Bravo, mated with the Real Housewives cast and then went shopping at Aeropostale.

  37. Jane says:

    I’m calling it now. She will be front row and center at a Chanel runway show and will be Langerfeld’s muse one day.

  38. NANALU says:

    All Ihave to say is Rihanna Wannabe.. Get over yourself Miley – you suck!

  39. Faye says:

    When ever I see her I feel like someone should tell her Miley please nobody cares, I never understand why wanting to look trash is such an in thing I grew up skint and I am still pretty much skint now I learnt to make 20 to 30 pound outfit look like high end high street why on earth would you be an 1000+ pound outfit and make it look like you got it from a charity shop?

    • RosettaStoned says:

      THANK YOU – I made a comment above about how ‘white trash’ is not a way of dressing. She’s a moron who thinks it’s hip to dip into poverty or minority status. She’s the target demographic for the Derelicte collection on Zoolander, she’d think that shit was genius!!

  40. Britta says:

    This tongue thing is really bothering me! It is so ridiculous that I am actually embarrassed for her. I hope some tongue accident befalls her and she will no longer have the ability to stick out her tongue. Wow! I am losing my mind! lol

  41. LilyT says:

    White trash & Chanel. Well, she’s halfway there.

  42. Lexi says:

    She is white trash, just cause she is rich, doesnt mean she isnt white trash! She is one of the most annoying morons on the planet!

  43. London lady says:

    Can someone please explain the grills situation to me, I just don’t understand why you would get one?

  44. Sash says:

    Just came here from the Lena Dunham post, and it appears that even someone who looks like Miley gets trashed for not being ‘womanly’ enough. Mother of God! When will the woman bashing end? Miley has a naturally slender figure and it’s no better or worse than any other body type. It is what it is. Women really need to stop behaving like rabid dogs towards one another.

  45. AustinMJ says:

    Ok, I’ve been defending Miley for a while now. She’s young, time to experiment, blah blah blah. But the TONGUE. I cant take it anymore. Put that dang thang back in your mouth girl! An another thing – WHY would you aspire to White Trash? You can take the girl out of Tennessee, but cant take the Tennessee out of the girl???

    • vketjo says:

      Can’t blame that on Tennessee……that’s pure Beverly Hillbillies …California ….

      • RosettaStoned says:

        ^^truth, she makes Ellie Mae look like Elle McPherson though haha. Tennessee probably kicked her out for not being classy enough to hang. It might be in the woods but it’s still the home of some mighty classy liquors, restaurants, fancy hats & Sunday dresses, gorgeous homes, and fine music (blues is classy! and there’s jazz in Memphis, too, and I’m sure elsewhere but anyway)…

        I mean I got the hell out of the South, but I won’t deny that genteelness is a hallmark of Southern living. Nobody who has lived in the South could say it’s wholly trashy – far from it. Miley is just uncultured, period, and that unfortunately happens everywhere. I will say though, that for some reason uncultured/ignorant people in the South tend to be MUCH more vocal about it than their counterparts in other regions of our great nation….spoken from personal experience so take it with a grain…

  46. Str8Shooter says:

    I think the word TRASH would sum this one up.

  47. d b says:

    This hard 80s look Miley’s got going puts me in mind the icy blonds from back in the day: the madonnas, sharon stone, hell, even brigitte nielsen…

  48. Nina W says:

    Her clothes are boring and her tongue is annoying.

  49. vketjo says:

    ALL I can say is she has the White Trash part down pat……..UGh ! .//

  50. Aud says:

    It makes me wonder.
    Celebrities who get incredibly thin are always rewarded by Karl Lagerfeld with a Chanel endorsement, so there is this positive reinforcement of looking emaciated.
    There is nothing attractive about Chanel as a label. It hasn’t evolved at all. Lagerfeld’s designs are always dated and Miley’s addition to the ranks as an accepted ‘insider’ [like Rihanna] has cheapened the brand.
    Chanel herself would turn in her grave.

  51. JoJo says:

    Can I say something in defence of miley? I am not a fan, but I kinda get where the goofy tongue pose comes from. I always make a weird face in photos because I don’t want anyone to think I am taking myself seriously. Maybe that is an insecurity for her too?!?

  52. blaize says:

    I really, really, REALLY wish that people- Miley Cyrus included- would stop using the term ‘white trash.’ I know some use it as a term of endearment, but that word has a lot of racist, classist, and slut-shaming meaning behind it.

  53. Jayna says:

    She said boyfriend, not fiance. I guess they are still together but not engaged.
