With all eyes on her after that MTV VMA performance as she strode the red carpet at last nights MTV Europe Music Awards in Amsterdam, she took the opportunity to put out a message of peace in a lace-through micro-mini dress emblazoned with pictures of gone-too-young rappers The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur.
The message? Please stop the violence.
While the sentiment might have been wholesome, the cut wasnt and its a far cry from Mileys younger days, as our writer Janice Turner discovered when she interviewed Miley (and her co-manager, chaperone and mom, Tish) for our June issue.
Miley was 14, at the height of her TV fame, and wanted to go to a meet and greet with fans in a skimpy crop top. Tish told her to go get changed. Miley refused. A row ensued, wrote Turner. Eventually, a surly Miley complied but when she returned, Tish grounded her.
Of course, Mileys transformation from Disney teen to powerful young woman in charge of her own destiny is well-enough documented.
But as for her devoted fans wanting to emulate her latest look The dress was custom-made vintage. The boots, though, were Tom Ford.
