I don't know about you, but I think the Grammys are the most thrilling of all the award shows. This is obviously due to all the amazing performances and musical tributes. But it also has a lot to with spotting stars like Miley Cyrus on the red carpet. The Grammys are a night when performers can really do it up and go all out in the style department, and no one does that better than Cyrus herself.
Over the years, we've watched the singer transform musically from wholesome Disney star to the incredible artist she is today. And her style has evolved right along with her. Cyrus has worn everything from dresses, to gowns, to jumpsuits on the red carpet, and sequins, leather, and even bears on stage.
To take just the briefest of looks into her style evolution, take a peek at this Alexandre Vauthier look from the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. So chic, right? Compare it to this cute Prada outfit. And this jumpsuit from 2016. No matter what she wears, Cyrus never fails to impress. And this year's Grammys was no different.
When you're Miley Cyrus, you can kind of do what you want when it comes to fashion, so the fact she showed up in a simple "little black jumper" was kind of great. I was expecting something over-the-top, so the fact she wore something so understated was kind of a genius move.
The look still had that special "Miley" twist we've all grown to love, since it featured an interesting neckline and ropes hanging down her arm. And yet, it was still such a simple look for someone who's been known to shock her fans, fashion-wise.
But maybe that's what's so fun about Cyrus? And about the Grammys in general? Truly, anything goes. And sometimes that can mean wearing something that's a little bit unexpected.
The singer did, however, add a touch of glittery glam to her feet in the form of super sparkly, super high heels. Because of course she did. Even with an understated outfit such as this, we have to expect Cyrus to add just that little somethin' extra.
The singer also carried a white rose with her on the red carpet to stand in solidarity with the Time's Up movement. The white roses were the Grammy's answer to the black gowns and Time's Up pins celebrities wore to the Golden Globes earlier this month.
Even though it's a serious subject, the singer still had fun with her rose, and spent the evening prancing around, smelling it, and biting the stem for the cameras.
After her red carpet walk, we got to see Cyrus again later on in the evening, when she took to the stage with her long-time friend Elton John. The two performed his hit "Tiny Dancer," and it was, of course, wonderful. But what was even better? Cyrus's magenta dress. It was, in a word, elegant.
It's not clear how the two stars met, but they've shown their support for each other over the years, and it was clear they had some major rapport on stage.
Even with all the hugging and singing, the gown was still center-stage. The look was a bit of a departure for the star, who hasn't been in touch with her super glam roots in what's felt like a while.
The dress featured a gorgeous ballgown bottom, sheer sleeves, and a sweetheart neckline — all of which came together to create a look that had some major stage presence.
It just goes to show that Cyrus can truly pull off anything. And that is why we love her.
