Miley Cyrus in Jean Paul Gaultier at the Billboard Awards: sexy or try hard?

Miley Cyrus

At last night’s Billboard Awards in Las Vegas, Miley Cyrus showed some serious skin in what looks like a simple blazer and heels with no pants to be found. Alas, this is an actual blazer dress from Jean Paul Gaultier, and Miley paired it with Christian Louboutin sandal heels along with her tanned cleavage and simple gold jewelry to jazz up the ensemble. I really like the unusual print on the shoes. Her figure looks stunning as well, but Miley also went for very big hair, and the overall effect is that I expect her to roll around on a car in a Whitesnake video. Am I the only one who gets that vibe? Miley is trying too hard here and wants some serious attention, I think.

Also, I’m obviously one for a bit of bedhead, but this is ridiculous.

Miley Cyrus

Julianne Hough donned a Kaufmanfranco dress that fit the Vegas vibe because it reminded me a lot of something that the latest hot young starlet might wear to Caesar’s Palace. She looks great in this shiny, silvery, vaguely toga-like outfit that still flatters her fit figure and very long legs. Her hair is appropriate, but her eye makeup makes her look a little bit spacey.

Justin Bieber

Of course, Justin Bieber had to walk the red carpet looking like he always does. At this point, I’m just glad that I can’t see his underwear. Speaking of the Biebs, I know that some of you didn’t understand why I didn’t give him a hard time for basically sounding like an idiot in his GQ interview. Yes, he said some silly things (“I’m a swaggy adult!” comes to mind), but it’s not like he went racist or misogynistic in manner of John Mayer. What Bieber said in that interview didn’t hurt anyone … with the possible exception of himself, so I cut him a break.

Natasha Bedingfield

Natasha Bedingfield is wearing … I don’t know. This black knit (?) dress is pretty cheap looking, and I couldn’t find a designer ID because it probably doesn’t exist. As in, she might have actually taken an old Snuggie and cut a few strategic holes to fashion her outfit for the evening. The coral lipstick and flower pinned in her hair also aren’t doing Natasha any favors.

Amber Rose Wiz Khalifa

Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa were there too. Amber’s never been known for a demure take on fashion, but that dress looks pretty painful on her boobs.

Lisa Marie Presley Michael Lockwood

Lisa Marie Presley showed up with her Tom Petty-esque scarecrow of a husband, Michael Lockwood, in tow. His scarves are starting to rival those of Russell Brand.

    Try-hard and honestly, she looks about 40 years old.

    • Kitty says:

      Does she suffer from Alzheimer or something because she forgot to wear pants and underwear. What a attention whore. And WTF is wrong with her hair? Her head looks like balloon and all I need is a needle.

    • RocketMerry says:

      I agree it’s not the best look, but those legs are to die for!
      Serious leg-envy over here.

      Though that collar bone is actually scary, no? She’s a bit too skinny in these pictures.

      • Elise says:

        That’s probably because she’s on the drug diet. Seriously, I haven’t seen pics of her in over a year and when I saw these I thought she was completely unrecognizable. Killer legs indeed. I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before we hear anorexia rumors.

    • I’m 40 and wish I looked like that. She looks nice. If I was her age I’d be all over showing my hot body. Go, Miley. Not a fan by any means, but hey….her coochie is hidden, she has a pretty smile, and she’s rockin’ her sexy.

    • Jilli says:

      She hardly looks 40! She is showing a lot of skin and the make up is heavy, but she is just trying some different styles. Who hasn’t? She is cute.

  2. Jackson says:

    Try-hard, yes. But I kinda still love her hair.

    • Maguita says:

      It’s the Rachel look, Granny style.

      Or rather, her redneck roots are showing. The whole ensemble is fun, and you must have an amazing figure to wear it. The exception is, Miley has been a precocious dirty-esque Lolita for quite a few years now, that anything on her, moderately sexy, just looks sleazy.

    • Amelia says:

      It’s bad posture combined with poor bone structure that make her collarbones look like that. Although, when in doubt and your star starts slipping – starve yourself and get some tabloid covers.

  3. gloaming says:

    Far too naked and too much eye make-up and the hair style’s too old for her.

  4. Eleonor says:

    Miley, I don’t know what it is (maybe her wrong makup? Wrong fake eyelashes?) but her face looks 30 years old!

    • Katy says:

      I think it might be the makeup. Her eyelashes are way to dark and thick. The first thing I thought when I saw the picture was that she sure seems to be aging quickly, but a closer look makes me think it’s just the makeup. But her legs look perfect!!! She should show them off!

      • supervisor says:

        her legs are disgusting. and they SHOULD be hidden. scrawny stork legs and cankles are not a pleasant site.

  5. Mimi says:

    Please someone explain to me what is going on with Miley’s boobie necklace, seriously is that a boobie necklace?!
    Love the shoes tho.

  6. mia girl says:

    I see less Whitsnake and more Ellen Barkin circa 1989

  7. brin says:

    Collective mess! Julianne looks ok except it looks like she’s wearing a bath towel.

    • +1 exactly my thought. :-)

      • G says:

        Me too. It’s like she and Miley were dressing together, running late and grabbed a jacket and a towel and went off.

    • arock says:

      is it me or does justin bieber always look like a hollywood interpretation of a high school lesbian? and someone should start a change.org petition to take away that wallet chain.

      –i want to squirt him with one of those little water bottles you train cats with…”no, biebs, no! get off the acid wash…bad biebs…”

  8. Cherry says:

    The fug girls would file Miley’s outfit under ‘Look into pants’.
    Lisa Marie Presley looks decent. For her. Did she have something done to her face recently?

  9. Annie says:

    She looks fantastic, Barely looks like her and does make her look much older. Great body and I really like the hair

    • mc says:

      I’m glad someone else likes her hair. The cut is cute… maybe less poof. I wasn’t into the scraggly extension thing. It made her look dirtier.

  10. marie says:

    I like the dress on Miley, but uh yeah-the hair is horrible and makes her look try-hard..

    Beiber will always look like he’s a 12 yr old to me.

    Love Natasha, but hate the dress..

    And Lisa Marie’s husband actually reminds me of Rhys Ifans..

  11. Emma says:

    Is Ambers’ right (her left) nipple peeking out or am I imagening things?

    Miley looked seriously skinny in the first picture.

  12. bagladey says:

    Miley is just screaming for attention but that look doesn’t suit her; she looks “country” to me.

  13. Fyofeelings says:

    Miley is giving that Jennifer A. vibe.

    Julianne H. looks like she has on a glittery towel on

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      That’s funny you say that bc I actually have been thinking for a while that Julianne H reminds me of Aniston. Something about her face…but yeah. I could totally see JA trying to do the blazer-as-dress look (has she, with black one?).

  14. TheOriginalKitten says:

    It takes a certain type of chick to pull off a nose ring, Miley Cyrus is NOT one of them.

    • Chatcat says:

      Kitten you are so right. The bulb of her nose is too…much of a bulb of a nose for a ring. The dress screams Vegas stripper wannabe…where is the pole? And where was Liam? Haven’t seen shots of her with Liam in a few weeks?

  15. Nicole says:

    I thought Miley was Rita Wilson at first glance. That can’t be good.

  16. Newtsgal says:

    I think it’s sad when people dress up their farm animals and put makeup on and tease their hair.

  17. anne_000 says:

    It would have looked better for them if Miley & Julianne had switched outfits. That silver towel would have matched that messy bedhead of Miley’s. And the white suit that’s designed to show off good-looking legs would have matched Julianne’s figure better & her in-place/neat hairstyle as well.

    It looks like Lisa Marie did too much work on her nose, but she looks a lot better styled & dressed than Miley & Julianne.

  18. Jill says:

    Good Lord, if I see one more person do the Jennifer Lopez squint-eyed, brow-furrowed, mouth-agape look one more time I’m going to throw my computer across the room. Now Bieber is doing it! Are they trying to look deep in thought? Squinting from all of the flash bulbs hurting their delicate irises? If Lisa Marie Presley (!) can put away the bitch face and smile like a normal person so can Bieber. And they do it way too much for it to be just a passing face that happened to get captured by the cameras. You know they practice their Blue Steel in the mirror for hours.

    Ok, sorry, I’m done ranting now.

    But Presley does look suddenly much happier. Hmmm… Good for her. :)

  19. Lauren says:

    ok I totally thought that was Michael Sheen for a sec with Lisa Marie. ha!

  20. Theresa says:

    I don’t think Miley has a clue how to dress, therefore, she has no idea how to dress appropriately. She dresses for attention, for male attention, and I bet she thinks she looks pretty great. That anyone outside the celebrity biosphere would find this completely ridiculous, for a woman of any age, matters nothing. This style ain’t goin’ nowhere with this chippy, expect the chest to remain exposed and the thighs to remain uncovered. It’s going to be a loooong summer…

  21. claire says:

    I’ve never understood the practicalities of wearing these type of shirt-dresses. Doesn’t it bunch up when you sit down? So, what, you are sitting at an awards show in essentially a shirt with your undies showing? I just don’t see how there’s any fabric to stay down over your butt when you sit down…

  22. TxGal says:

    BuckTooth Miley has been trying to look like an adult since an early age. For some reason anything she wears it comes out looking trashy on her. Her make-up is too over done, her hair not that great on her. The girl just looks like a troll-up.

  23. bns says:

    Too much makeup, too much hair, too much everything. She can give me those shoes, though.

  24. Micah says:

    That “Tit-tacular” necklace is hideous.

    From a distance it looks like a skin fold.

  25. danielle says:

    I LOVE Miley’s hair shorter. I think the bedhead look is cute. Much better than the long, stringy extensions.

  26. ZZZ says:

    I hate her hair. Hate it.
    I love Wiz, but wish he was NOT marrying that fat skank.

  27. serena says:

    What bother me the most is Miley’s hair and make up (and by that I mean her eyebrows and fake lashes). As for the blazer, ok maybe it’s not appropriate, but she looks good.

  28. Shelly says:

    Miley looks hot! I really like that length of hair on her and the volume of it. Love her shoes, too, and the girl has some fantastic legs on her! Not crazy about the blazer dress, but with her body it works. Julianne looks like she’s wearing a sparkly towel. Not a good look.

  29. lower-case deb says:

    formal pants under there won’t go remiss, miley!
    a la blake lively’s getup
    at least we wouldn’t worry both upside and bottomside being spilled out at once.

  30. lisa says:

    Try hard, attention seeking and not pulling it off very well is usually the state Miley finds herself in these days. I guess she needs this type of attention and validation because her career has stalled and she doesn’t know the next move.

    • supervisor says:

      i’d say she doesn’t have anywhere else to go. she can’t sing for crap, she can’t act either.

  31. G says:

    I’d just like to see the extra inch of fabric and fitting that would assure me that this is a tuxedo look. It would have been great. Instead we look like we have no pants.

    It IS kind of editorial but doesn’t work if you have to walk/sit/breathe.

  32. barbi says:

    I’m not sure how to explain what I see. Her cheeks look exactly like the cleavage that is showing. Seriously, look from one to the other. Especially in the second picture. :-)

  33. katie says:

    Miley is in serious need of some guidance. I know she’s trying to figure out where she fits in, but she needs a mentor something fierce. Also, Julianne looks like she’s wearing a sparkly bath towel. I have no words for Amber Rose, Wiz Khalifa or Justin Beiber. Frankly, they all look trashy. It’s severely disappointing.

  34. Freckles says:

    Lisa Marie Presley appears to be on a date with Worzel Gummidge. You need to be British to get this one…

  35. Anna says:

    I will never get over her piranha-mouth.

  36. HappyJoyJoy says:

    I would have loved to see that outfit on a 30 year old, not Miley. It ages her. And that make up… No, just.. no. She’s in great shape, she should take advantage of it now instead of trying to be 20 when she’s 35 (it always happens)

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Agree…Reminds me of something Carrie Bradshaw (yes, the character) would try to pull off on the red carpet. And that hair is like hers from season 3.

  37. Chris says:

    Miley looks like a older Miley. Ugly hair and slutty looks. When you don’t have talent, show some skin.

    • DreamyK says:

      She’s definitely on a downward trajectory. The drugs, the drinking, the penis cake, the hooker look…what’s next out of Lindsay Lohan’s playbook? Yep. The Playboy centerfold.

      I think she’s trying to distract everyone from this piece of blind gossip:
      http://blindgossip.com/?p=41153

  38. OlsenTriplet says:

    Am I the only one who wonders about what happens when she sits down? Is her naked butt just rubbing all over the upholstery?

    She clearly wants us to think she’s naked underneath, but is she?

    Sitting around with no underwear on in Vegas is like volunteering to be a health-department petri dish, no?

  39. Lalo says:

    Miley Cyrus looks like the Queen from the movie ‘Mars Attacks!’ Google it and I dare you not to laugh.

  40. Mary jones says:

    Nothing will ever distract from Mileys fug mug. Yuck she will always be ugly.

  41. Lalo says:

    Also, did anyone watch Lesbeaver’s performance yesterday? I swear that it could be used to extract information from terrorists.

  42. debunker says:

    She’s not good-looking no matter what.

  43. Chatcat says:

    “Dressed like a nurse practitioner in a porn movie, Miley Cyrus went to the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas last night and made it perfectly clear that her chipmunk chichis can’t be tamed.” I think MichaelK summed up what most of us really think.

    And where in the world is waldo…I mean Liam. Kitten help me find him!!!!!

  44. Krock says:

    I love her makeup and her body is killer. The hair ruined the look for me. Reminds me of that monster on bugs bunny with the hair pins popping out lol!

  45. Haha says:

    Miley’s stylist gave her “the Rachel” LMAO

  46. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    Miley: You are not Carrie Bradshaw, who in normal genius fashion mode after she and Big fell in a fountain or river or something, took one of Big’s dress shirts, wrapped a belt around it and totally strutted her stuff down the streets of Manhattan in fabulosity with nothing but thong and phone. And manolos of course. You have to have a certain kind of sophistication/tude to pull of the bare minimum. I can see Rihanna doing this and going brava on some one like Chloe S. There has to be some edginess to the personality.

    And the the Texan hair!. UGH. Not right for her face at all. So for me, she has the right figure, I loved the accessories, but it still looks try hard and extra on her.

    Julianne has boob issues. Does no one care about this at all? But the dress does look good. Would have love to seen her hair in tumbling curls to the side. with a great pair of earrings.

    Everyone else is so fail it’s not even worth mentioning.

  47. Electra says:

    Miley isn’t dressed for her age. Seems a bit too old.

  48. ramona says:

    Someone hunt Miley down, rip those shoes off her feet and bring them to me. I promise to wear them with trousers.

  49. poppy says:

    pants or a blouse. needs one or the other.
    the caterpillar eyes… just no.

  50. Mara says:

    Miley is looking older than her age in that ugly kind of a dress she is wearing and the hair is bad to ,she is trying really hard to look sexy but she is not.

  51. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    I think she looks hot, aside from the hair. I just hope this look isn’t the new form of bandage dresses..where you suddenly see like 10 different versions over the next 6 months at big appearances. Now that would be redic!

  52. skuddles says:

    I kind of like Miley’s look here but the saggy braless boobs are an unnecessary distraction – she would have looked sexier with a little more coverage.

  53. LadidahBaby says:

    What a shame Miley hasn’t yet learned the rule of balance in fashion: when you wear a super-revealing or borderline-slutty dress (and for the record, I love this blazer dress and think her body looks fantastic in it), you get the best effect by balancing the look with a super-sleek, classic hairstyle and subtle make-up! If she had pulled her hair back into a sleek knot at the nape and lost the tranny eyes, she’d have kicked ass.

  54. Me says:

    They all look f-ing horrible.

  55. Ola says:

    Miley looks good, i love her dress and her shoes!! great match but i dont like her hair, shes too young for this style

  56. Jilliterate says:

    Yeah, I’m not loving Miley’s look, but it’s a couple of different things. The big hair is something I associate with “Old Bingo Lady,” but in-and-of-itself, her hair doesn’t look too bad. The cut’s ok, it doesn’t look dead, the dye job is decent. It’s just too much paired with an already in-your-face outfit.

    And I disagree with the comments saying she’s wearing too much makeup. She’s not wearing TOO MUCH makeup, she just screwed up the makeup she’s wearing, namely, her blush. It’s way too ruddy, for both her skin tone and the lip colour she’s wearing. The deep colour is making her skin looked really weathered, whereas if she had picked out a lighter, more cool-toned pink, she would have looked fresh-faced. Benefit’s Posietint, for example, or the billions of blue-toned pinks MAC has.

  57. Lara says:

    I kind of love the hair. It’s vampy and kittenish. I don’t like anything else about this look, but I would totally rock that hair with something vintagey and/or Frenchish.

  58. ZenB!tch says:

    Even that hooker Amber whatsit looks better than Miley.

    I hate Tawny Kitaen with a passion only a girl who was a teen in the 80s can muster but I think you need to apologize to her for that Whitesnake video comment. Miley looks like she’s wearing a satin blazer from Walmart.

    Y’all can take the girl outta the trailer but y’all can’t take the trailer outta the girl.

  59. Snowflake says:

    I think she looks great, love the hair. the only thing i would lose is the booby necklace.

  60. Dahlia1947 says:

    Uh soo try hard! She looks uncomfortable like she knows the blazer is slipping off her shoulders! I hate the hair! It does not go with her face. It’s just not a hairstyle! Who are these stylists anyway?

    dissapointed in how short and stumpy Amber Rose looks here. Julianne’s dress’ color and texture? Cool. The fact that it looks like she just wrapped herself in a bath towel? That part sucks.

    Justin looks adorable! He can do no wrong! Cutie!

    The rest I don’t care about.

  61. Birdix says:

    is there something odd about Julianne Hough–maybe her upper lip? something looks tweaked, or maybe it’s just the make-up.

  62. the original bellaluna says:

    Memo to Miley: Too many necklaces; not enough outfit. You’ll want to keep an eye on that.

    Julianne: Just go hide in your new Leprechaun Compound.

    Amber: Let your boobies go-o-o-o-o. (If you don’t appreciate them while they’re perky, they WILL turn [down] on you.)

  63. LittleDeadGirl says:

    Jeez everyone looks awful and what’s with the grey dress that looks like a towel wrapped around her body?

  64. I Choose Me says:

    I like Miley’s makeup here and I don’t even mind the big hair. And her figure looks fantastic, those are some nicely toned legs. She’d look even more fabulous if she would just STAND UP STRAIGHT! Argh. Don’t even get me started on Natasha Bedingfield. All the bad posture I’m seeing just makes me want to march up to them with a stack of books and a ruler to rap knuckles with.

  65. Anna says:

    It isn’t often a find a post from an event where I can’t find one outfit or look that I like. This unfortunately is one of them. Everything is ill-fitting, inappropriate or just slightly off – e.g. I’m not a masive fan of Miley but if she had just slicked her hair back in a classic low bun or run with the wet look and less bronzer it could have looked very chic.

  66. crazycatlady says:

    Nothing says “I so desperately want to be seen as a grown up, y’all” like walking around in public nearly naked.

    Please, someone tell Miley Cyrus that being a woman is not equivalent with being a slutty ho.

  67. B says:

    Her collarbones are gross. How can y’all say her body looks great? She needs to gain a little more weight.

  68. Miss Thang says:

    Miley, look out! You have caterpillars on your face!!

  69. BlackSwan777 says:

    Her body looks great, but her outfit/makeup are too old for her. And that nose ring is tacky as hell.

  70. caityyy says:

    Sooooo Miley is now getting fillers in her upper lip, yes?

  71. Marion says:

    Love her look, hate her hair!!!

  72. Hakura says:

    The hair as great, even the jewelry. She could’ve looked so amazing if everything didn’t have to have her hanging out everywhere. But I guess if it wasn’t, no one would look at her at all..

  73. Adrien says:

    Hey Miley! Lady Gaga called, she doesn’t want that pantless look back, it’s so 2008.

  74. supervisor says:

    pretty sad to hear so many women think miley has nice legs. she has hideous legs. nothing but bad cankles,that go up the rest of the way.
    so many chicks have this warped idea that looking like hell is a nice thing.

    • Hakura says:

      I dislike Miley as much as the next girl, & I’m certainly not defending her. But I don’t see cankles. I just think her legs are super skinny, but sometimes that’s just build (as opposed to bad diet/ect) & something considered attractive in the ‘fashion’ world.

      I don’t think she looks like hell, really. I just think she had a potentially great idea, but ‘Miley-fied’ it beyond saving.

  75. Lisa B. says:

    I don’t think it’s a try hard look. I bet a lot of people would like it if wasn’t Miley Cyrus wearing it!

    • Hakura says:

      I really hope that’s not the case. She really f-ed up on what could’ve been a decent outfit.

  76. foozy says:

    i think she looks great and i’m not even a fan or anything. the tits look a little droopy..

  77. Veritas says:

    Did Panface use lots of tit tape with that outfit?

    BTW, is that a nose ring I see? Ewww!!

    • Hakura says:

      I think the reason she’s a bit ‘droopy’ is because she didn’t use anything for coverage or support. Not a good thing.

      Honestly, while I prefer a nose stud (& think in this case, would’ve been better), I give her some credit at least, for toning it *down* with the ring, making it a little more classy (less noticable).
