Does Miley Cyrus’ Edgy New ‘Do Foreshadow A Punky VMA Ensemble?

In case you missed THE biggest hair news of the year, last week Miley Cyrus chopped of her luscious ringlets for a bleach-blonde, shaved-on-the-sides-long-on-top punky pixie cut, and we LOVE it. Since she debuted her new ’do, we’ve also noticed that her typically flowy, boho-chic style is transforming into an edgier, punkier look à la Swedish pop singer Robyn. Think: Chunky patent leather lace-up Dr. Martens with printed leggings and boxy, oversized tops.

We ALSO just found out that Miley will be presenting at the 2012 Video Music Awards (YAY), which totally guarantees her amazing presence and killer FASHUNZ at the show, but her new hair really got us thinking—will her edgy new ’do influence her VMA ensemble? We’re guessing yes, SO we compiled what we think she’ll wear for her first short-haired red carpet debut. We assume she’ll sport something fun yet funky, which is why we picked out this black and blue Proenza Schouler number. It’s got that badass exposed zippers and leather look with a touch of girliness that we love oh-so-much about Miley. If Ms. Cyrus decides to go a bit more casual (unlike last year), we think she’ll opt for a bold and punky ’90-inspired Ashish ensemble. We like this sparkly graphic print tunic dress with stacked rainbow platforms. If she were to go ALL OUT badass, we could totally see her sporting The Blonds’ leopard print rhinestone-encrusted bustier with a gold lionhead medallion belt and sheer skirt. But, um, we can do without the helmet. (Sorry!)

If there’s anything we know about Miley’s style, it’s that she LOVES short-shorts, so we had to suggest a VMA ensemble with those bad boys in mind. We liked Alice + Olivia’s gold sequin top paired with shiny pleather shorts and thigh-high stockings. (We totally don’t mind the goth-y lipstick either.) Bright blonde hair looks KILLER with a nude dress, so we couldn’t pass up mentioning The Blonds’ bedazzled snakeskin turtleneck frock. I mean, how good would that look with a short ’do? We rest our case. We don’t doubt that Miley’s feeling straight-up fierce lately with her new hair, so we had to throw in a show-stopping, sculpted red, black and animal print Balenciaga number. WOWZA. But what do you think—will Miley’s new hair change her VMA look? Let us know in the comments!
