Miley Cyrus Shows Off Her Thong Bodysuit in New Pics
Miley Cyrus's bodysuit era continues. On the cover of her eighth studio album, "Endless Summer Vacation," the "Plastic Hearts" singer swings from a trapeze bar wearing a black vintage Alaïa bodysuit from the '90s. Selected from the archives by stylist Bradley Kenneth, the swimwear-esque piece is made of a silky material and features halter-style straps and two angular side cutouts just above the hips.
After a few more shots taken by photographer Brianna Capozzi were revealed to promote Cyrus's partnership as an investor with self-tanner brand Dolce Glow, the design's open back and cheeky fit came into light. Cyrus opted out of pants and finished the striking look with rectangular YSL sunglasses, slingback pointed-toe YSL pumps, and a swipe of red lipstick. She put her dozens of tiny arm tattoos on display for the backyard photo shoot.
"Endless Summer Vacation" is set to release on March 10, but first, Cyrus dropped her single "Flowers" on Jan. 13 with a full music video that involves a rigorous workout routine in a classic black bikini and a gold stomach-cutout dress from YSL's fall 1991 collection. Cyrus's love for archival fashion was also front and center during her second annual New Year's Eve special, where she wore two vintage Versace dresses and a beaded one-shoulder number from costume designer Bob Mackie's 2002 capsule.
Seeing as you'll have to shell out a few thousand dollars to score Cyrus's exact bodysuit from a secondhand website, we tracked down a handful of more affordable dupes, plus a similar Alaïa cutout swimsuit that's available for purchase right now. Shop our picks ahead, then check out the plunging shift dress Cyrus wore to celebrate "Flowers" staying at the top of the charts. Unsurprisingly, this, too, was an archival piece, from Tom Ford's 1996 spring collection for Gucci.
