Girl can’t help it: All of Miley Cyrus’s crazy Bangerz tour costumes
Last Friday, Vancouver was treated to opening night of Miley Cyrus’s much-anticipated Bangerz tour. To nobody’s surprise, the concert’s visuals delved into XXX territory, including tongue prints, high-cut leotards and 24-karat gold leaf rolling papers on sale at the merch table. But hey, what else would you expect from the queen of twerk controversy?
Cyrus revealed the nine-piece wardrobe created by fashion BFF Marc Jacobs, The Blonds and Roberto Cavalli as previously reported, to name a few.
Sliding down an inflated model of her own tongue (natch), Cyrys kicked the night off in a custom two-piece red suit by stylist Simone Harouche accented with ostrich feather shoulder details. Accessorizing with a pair of white cowboys boots and a white Chanel mini cross body bag, the singer gyrated through a rendition of her song “SMS (Bangerz)” alongside a group of neon bears and balloons. Later, Cyrus swapped into a cannabis-covered deep-V leotard by The Blonds, keeping the cowboy boots but swapping the Chanel for a silver backpack by the brand.
And while the singer’s new shock-hungry image has virtually wiped Hannah Montana from the equation, Cyrus did kick it old school with a performance of “Can’t be Tamed,” which she sang in black and white fur chaps and a bejewelled bra by The Blonds. As for the Marc Jacobs bit, black sheer long sleeve evening gown by the designer was the perfect fit for Cyrus’s slowed down rendition of her new single “Adore You.”
A Dolly Parton wig, a stand-in Bill Clinton and a patriotic sequined American flag are just a few of the gimmicks Cyrus whipped out on-stage and while they all might contribute to her newfound unsavoury persona, there’s one thing that can be agreed upon by critics and fans alike: there ain’t no party like a Miley Cyrus party.
For those of you hankering for a Bangerz peek on the east coast, you’ll have plenty of time to practice your twerk before Miley Cyrus hits Montreal on March 29 and Toronto on March 31, 2014.
