We all knew what to expect from Miley Cyrus’s VMA ensembles: outrageous colors, even more audacious cuts, and, of course, plenty of nudity. All that—and then some—came to pass at last night’s ceremony. As the host, she kicked off the evening in a body harness by Atelier Versace, and later wore other looks by the house, as well as pieces by Prada, The Blonds, and Bcalla. The thing VMA viewers are buzzing over today is the sheer nakedness of it all—one of Cyrus’s breasts actually made it into the broadcast, after all. But perhaps the real conversation—in fashion, at least—should be about the style of the clothing the pop singer-cum-phenom wore.
Not only did Cyrus woo high-fashion brands to craft playful outfits to her specifications, but she also sported two Courrèges pieces, both introduced by André Courrèges in his mid-century heyday. She accessorized a plastic, bubble-covered dress with Courrèges sunglasses and added an orange Courrèges visor to a two-piece outfit made to look like eyes and lips. Celebs mining fashion archives is none too new, but the decision of Cyrus and her stylist, Simone Harouche, to look to Courrèges couldn’t be more timely. The house is about to undergo a revival at the hands of Arnaud Vaillant and Sébastien Meyer, the young duo behind the LVMH Prize–nominated Coperni Femme. Does this mean that she’ll make an appearance at their debut Spring 2016 presentation in Paris? You never know.
