'And we can't stop. And we won't stop'
What I couldn't help noticing was the complete change of personal style and self expression; the most obvious being her edgy pixie cut. (I was also wondering how heavy that massive teddy bear was ... any takers?) Throughout the video, we see her in various outfits consisting of
1. An all-white-crop-with-leggings
2. A skimpy spaghetti strap overalls ... with a crop
3. An oversized fur coat
4. A barely-there swimsuit with palm trees to cover her parts
Outfit 1 fits in the category of 'sports luxe' popularised by Isabel Marant, Phillip Lim 3.1 and Alexander Wang. Styled with some gold accessories and reflective shades, it was on the dot ... street style.
Outfit 2 could literally be bought in any accessible high street or chain store, see Topshop for the crop maybe Solestruck for the shoes.
Outfit 3, well that's what the fuss with thrift shops are all about.
And finally that swimsuit by Minimale Animale in Outfit 4 which could be bought on Nastygal, one of the greatest online shopping sites known to my bookmarked list. True fact: I actually contemplated getting that swimsuit (then decided I couldn't pull it off as well as Miley did).
What I'm saying is that what she wore is essentially what pop culture glorifies and is marketed to average teenagers. For crying out loud, she didn't get her clothes from an adult shop selling stripper wear!
So here's the key question:
Is it her attitude and sexual writhing and ass shaking which is garnering so much hate? Or is it because of her style? Because if it is her style that is supposedly making her a 'slut', then that's a comment on fast fashion itself.
Although I have one criticism Miley ... please don't twerk again.
