The 2013 Grammy Awards don’t officially begin until later tonight, but luckily for our caffeine-addled brains, Miley Cyrus is giving us plenty to talk about until then. In case you haven’t noticed (ahem, see above), the singer rocked a black Emilio Pucci ensemble to Clive Davis’s Pre-Grammy Gala last night in L.A. for a result that’s so jaw-dropping, SO eye-popping, that we could literally sit here all afternoon and break it down for you, piece by piece. And that’s exactly what we’re going to do. So let’s start with the first impressions: the singer chose to ignore the recent no sideboob rule (more power to you, Miley!) in her sultry sheer black gown designed by Pucci’s Peter Dundas that flashed some major skin. Risky? Yeah, but this is a Cosmo cover girl we’re talking about, you guys, and if anyone can pull it off…well, Miley can. This two-piece gown—there’s the minidress with a serpent motif as well a see-through overlay— comes adorned with tiny little rings across the top. Oh, and see those black Versace leather over-the-knee boots peeking out from underneath it all? Va va voooooom!
Miley always has her accessories game on lock, but can we seriously talk about all that’s happening right here? From her silver earring chain to her rad cocktail rings to her stacked black bangles, this girl has ALL her bases covered with this juxtaposition of delicate and edgy jewelry. Not to mention, she’s got her party pose down.
Save for her smoky kohl-rimmed eyes, Miley kept things fairly natural on the beauty side. Nude lips, a bronze flush, and groomed brows keep the focus on her outfit…which, given THIS dress, is the way it should be, right?
Here’s a parting shot of the back of Miley’s gown, which shows just how intricate this look really is— a racerback, criss-cross details, and a metallic motif underneath! Whoa.
