Despite being added to multiple MTV’s VMAs worst dressed lists, Miley Cyrus opens up about her impeccable fashion taste and style and isn’t holding back in the modesty department.

Cyrus appears on the cover of the November 2013 issue in a black, crochet cover-up over a black top and shorts by Zimmerman. Speaking to the magazine, Cyrus explains that her friend and new-found mentor Pharrell encouraged her to wear the outfit.
Cyrus stated, “I found what I wore on the red carpet to the VMAs with Pharrell. It was a Dolce and Gabbana piece from 1992—the year I was born. He saw it and said, ‘you have to buy it.’ I think that outfit added a factor that the other girls couldn’t compete with.”
Cyrus continued quoting her mentor. “Pharrell says it’s not about what you’re wearing; it’s the way you wear it. That was a lesson I took to heart. I think it is important that I execute a look better than other people. Fashion is what separates me from everyone else.”
While Cyrus has no problem stating she believes the other girls couldn’t compete with her fashion choices; many disagreed. When it comes to the VMAs worst dressed list; Cyrus found her place nestled amongst Selena Gomez and Richard Simmons. Here are just a few of the sites that put Cyrus’ Dolce and Gabbana mariachi-styled, beaded jumpsuit on the worst dressed list: Zap 2 It; E Online!; and Perez Hilton.
