OFFICIALLY A DIVA

Posted Sep 20 2009 @ 04:26 PM

In total diva mode (is she ever not?), Miley Cyrus worked the red carpet at the 2009 VH1 Divas event in New York on September 17. I have very mixed feelings about her look here. On one hand, her Dsquared2 gown is absolutely stunning, and although many are saying it's too much for her age, I think it's perfect for the event. The gorgeous rhinestone details, the ruched front hem and the unexpected train at the back make this the perfect sexy, yet classy cocktail attire (if you're looking for a similar frock for events this fall, browse Sue Wong's Beaded Gown with Deep V Back in Black/Nude or Walter's Shiny Foil Twill Bustier Dress in Gunmetal). Beyond the dress, I'm not loving the choice of stockings or – I hate to say it – patent leather YSL pumps. As another blogger bluntly put it, divas don't wear fishnets, and I have to say I agree – I think it takes away from the elegance of the dress. As for the footwear, I'm picturing this dress with strappy stilettos with a gem encrusted strap across the toes – much sleeker and more refined than pumps for this type of dress, and event. Miley also loaded on the bangles and added a giant cocktail ring – again, I'd let the dress speak for itself and possible add a small accent like Adina Reyter's Tiny Heart Chain Bracelet in Sterling Silver, or maybe a diva-esque clutch like Moyna Handbag's Velvet Box Frame Clutch in Black. There are my thoughts – what are you thinking about this 'fit? If you recall, VH1 hosted a series of Divas Live events a few years back, and got the show started again with Miley, Adele, Leona Lewis, Jordin Sparks, Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson headlining this year. Miley performed her latest single "Party in the USA" in a Madonna-esque "Like a Virgin" corset mini dress and of course the fishnets, resulting in a lot of questions about her attire, racy dance moves and of course, her age - it's almost a de ja vu of her Teen Choice Awards performance a few weeks ago. Later in the show Miley joined Sheryl Crow for a special rendition of "If It Makes You Happy," and Kelly Clarkson paid tribute with a cover of Miley's Hannah Montana hit, "The Climb." Sounds like quite the show! Did any of you tune in to the live show on Thursday?

I agree the fishnets dont go. BUT Miley Cyrus was probably just trying to make it "Young and Funky" The YSL Shoes are also better for the club or something waaayy more casual.guest on Sep 20 2009 @ 06:18 PM

I think it is very cute for a girl her age, but maybe too revealing as wellguest on Sep 21 2009 @ 01:20 PM

if the front hem was a few inches longer it would be tastefulguest on Sep 21 2009 @ 01:40 PM

love tha backguest on Sep 21 2009 @ 04:08 PM

the hemline in front is way too short to be classy, add the fishnet stockings...it becomes tacky. the heels...trashy. bad image!guest on Sep 21 2009 @ 07:10 PM

at least she is not "peace-signing" us... ughhhguest on Sep 25 2009 @ 02:35 PM

somebody cover her up. She shouldn't be dressing like this at age 15 or whatever. Nobody should dress like this unless they are a call girl. Certainly not a 15 year old. Bad example to teenagersguest on Jan 10 2010 @ 08:50 PM
