Compared to swinging around naked on a wrecking ball and licking a sledgehammer, Miley Cyrus's most recent appearances in public have actually been pretty tame. (Though, let's not forget, as she warned us a while back, she can't be tamed!) When I say tame, though, I mean she was actually clothed. In one particular strange haute couture outfit yesterday that raised more than a few eyebrows ... for several good reasons.
Miley stepped out in London wearing a black bra and sheer black Jean Paul Gaultier pants, featuring one skinny leg and one flared. One transparent, and the other not. She then topped off the outfit with a Chanel gold chain belt and accessories. The clincher: A view from the back made it apparent she may have gone commando -- or at least worn a thong -- to pull off the look.
Yup. Why are we not surprised?!
I'm actually digging the shoes ... but that's about it. The look overall is nothing new, novel, interesting. It's like Miley raided 1990, Vogue-era Madonna's backup dancers' wardrobe. Sad. No wonder she's been called the poor man's Pink aka the poor man's Gwen Stefani ... And, of course, they've all been imitating Madonna since 1985.

Yes, everyone -- and we! -- are talking about the sheer, mismatched pant legs, but what are we really all worked up about? You'd have to be living under a rock to not realize this supposedly SHOCKING (gasp!) style is really just a lame attempt at looking cutting-edge and avant-garde. But sadly, it's not even vintage, not retro, just old news -- recycled, rehashed, stale.
Oh man, let's hope Miley doesn't actually hope or believe she's doing here is something groundbreaking ... When it comes to this uninspired flashback style she's -- and Gaultier? -- is trying to make her own, we're wise enough to see right through it.
What do you think about this outfit?
