Miley Cyrus Embraces a Vintage Country Look in Her Self-Styled Billboard Cover Shoot

It’s fair to expect the most from Miley Cyrus fashion-wise — she’s worn everything from strap-ons to conversation-provoking faux dreadlocks in the past few years. But following her 2015 SoundCloud-released album Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, the singer is working on a sixth studio album that’s more of a homecoming to her country roots. 

"All the ­nipple pastie shit, that’s what I did because I felt it was part of my political movement, and that got me to where I am now," Cyrus exclusively tells Billboard. "I’m evolving, and I surround myself with smart people that are evolved."

As the cover star of Billboard’s May 13, 2017 issue, Cyrus brought back vintage pieces from her own huge closet -- which is color-coded and even fabric-coded -- that reflect this new, unexpected direction of her art and personal style. Check out the country-inspired looks that the singer styled herself from her Malibu home shoot.

 

Cyrus dresses up a simple white tee and daisy dukes look with a red bandana necktie.

 

The singer wears a vintage, summery white maxi dress with a lace-up bodice.

 

Parked in front of her Rainbow Land recording studio, Cyrus steps out of the car in vegan cowboy boots, daisy dukes and a baby blue long sleeved shirt for a more casual look.

 

The pink-frilled and lacy details of Cyrus’ vintage piece — probably a sophisticated sleeping gown — create a soft and feminine look in the singer’s repertoire that we haven’t seen in a while.
