Hold onto your hats, ladies and gentlemen: Miley Cyrus announced that she’ll not only wear actual clothes on her upcoming 38-city excursion (which in and of itself is mildly shocking), but Cyrus' Bangerz tour outfits will be made by heavyweight designers like Marc Jacobs, Moschino’s Jeremy Scott, and Bob Mackie.
The Blonds, who are responsible for dressing Cyrus in those gold sequin pants and Cruella de Vil–esque fur jacket for her New Year’s Eve performance, will also play a leading role in her sure-to-be-memorable concert fashion. Many of the duo’s magical creations are chock-full of glitter, sequins, rhinestones, and other eye-catching details — all right up Cyrus’s alley — so we can probably expect dramatic looks like the ones worn in the past by singers Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry.
Cyrus’s performance and red-carpet looks have gotten dramatically flashier, skin-baring, and just plain insane over the last year or so — just look at her flesh-colored bikini from Cyrus' infamous VMA performance if you need a refresher — and it’s pretty safe to assume the pop star won’t be changing her style dramatically for her latest tour, much to her mother’s chagrin. Unfortunately, that likely means more crotch-flashing bottoms, fishnet dresses, and skin-tight bodysuits.
But maybe (fingers crossed) the influence of her new designer buddies will at least give her wacky ensembles a bit of high-fashion flare this time around. We’ve witnessed how amazing Marc Jacobs can make Cyrus look, thanks to the recent campaign they shot together, and can only hope for a little bit of his taste to peek through in her tour outfits.
But fear not, Cyrus fans: Even with respected designers working their magic, the tour is sure to be a total spectacle, with animal costumes and props inspired by the artwork of Ren & Stimpy creator John K. (Oh, and then there’s the fact that Cyrus plans to literally drop merchandise on her fans’ heads mid-concert, because she’s just that generous). Whether or not her new bowl cut will join her on tour is yet to be seen.
