As if there were any doubts, Miley Cyrus proved once and for all that she doesn’t have a problem showing skin during her performance at last night’s VMA Awards.

Before she hit the VMAs, Cyrus revealed the cover art for Bangerz, tweeting “You know the vintage YSL don’t stay on for long ‪#bangerz ‪#october8.”

The vintage YSL she refers to is a black belted blazer, which can be seen from the front on the Deluxe Edition album cover. If Miley’s tweet hints that she’s going to get even more naked than we’ve already seen her, her penchant for going pantsless means she’s already got a head start.

From the red carpet, to magazine and video shoots, and even in her everyday life, click on to see Miley’s best naked-from-the-waist-down fashion moments.

Photos from the new video for rapper Future’s single “Real and True” show Cyrus — wearing nothing but a head-to-toe coat of glittery body paint — playing the role of what appears to be an alien life form. Future, whose nickname is Astronaut Kid, is fully clothed in what looks like a space suit.


The “We Can’t Stop” singer posed naked for a T-shirt from designer Marc Jacobs’ “Protect the Skin You’re In” campaign, which hit shelves in July. Cyrus tweeted a photo of the design along with the message; “Check out my @MarcJacobsIntl #ProtectTheSkinYoureIn tee❤❤❤We gonna save alot of lives #marcfam.”

One of Cyrus’s earliest experiments with the pantsless look happened at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards, where she walked the red carpet in a Jean Paul Gaultier blazer and Christian Louboutin heels.

With the help of stylist Simone Harouche, Cyrus put together a number of bottomless ensembles for her “We Can’t Stop” music video, which was released earlier this summer.

In May, stylist Carlyne Cerf shared a behind-the-scenes photo of Cyrus in pink American Apparel briefs, a skull-print biker jacket and matching boots by Jeremy Scott on Instagram.

Cyrus’ pink underwear appeared once again in magazine’s 2013 summer issue, which featured a risqué fashion spread titled The Emancipation of Miley.

Cyrus covered up on top and from the knees down, but apparently forgot to put on pants when she performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live in June. “I did not realize when you walked out you were wearing your underpants,” Kimmel quipped.

During a stop in Chicago to promote her new single, Cyrus tweeted a racy selfie that showed her in a Chicago White Sox jersey and heels. Later that day, she tweeted a picture of the look from the back.

When Cyrus traveled to Canada to visit on-again-off-again fiancé Liam Hemsworth, she posed for a fan photo in a vintage Tupac shirt, camouflage vest, and shower shoes.
